    Testing the UD7 on phase-change. Colder temperatures are the key for a high BCLK as well as having luck to get a good CPU. My 950 could only go upto 235MHz BCLK (phase and LN2), this 960 can do 240 on phase change

    Can you share your settings for high BCLK ?

    Good pieter, we're also testing our 950+ud7 toward the end of march under ln2.. let's see if we can move on from 225bclk

    Nothing special, really.

    VTT = 1.5V
    IOH = 1.4V
    PCI-e = 110MHz

    I see a little bit more stability with higher IOH, but it's almost negligible.

    Hello
    I have a slight issue and maybe this has already been addressed but i couldnt find any information so i made this post..
    my 3.3v and 5v rails show perfect volts.. but the +12v rail shows 2.3-2.4v only when its idle. when i start the system stability test or OCCT then the +12v reading fluctuates between 8.8.-9.1v
    This is the same with OCCT as well!!
    But my system continues to stay on and i have run occt for 25-35 mins and no crash.
    Tried the everest stability test for 15-20 mins as well and no crash.
    I was really worried and didnt want to run my system with the thought of killing something with the really weird voltages being reported.
    Until i saw a post on the lavalays forum of a guy who has the same problem i thought i had a messed up PSU ! but the fact that my pc was still on with only 2.1v on the +12v rail told me something was very fishy.
    Strangely enough the bios and Easy Tune 6 reports 11.99-12.05v on the +12v rail.
    any help would be highly appreciated

    my system is :-
    Gigabyte X58A-UD7 Motherboard
    Intel Core i7 920
    6GB Corsair Dominator 1600 CL8
    Corsair TX 750 Psu
    WD Velociraptor 300
    WD 1TB Black x3
    Nvidia GTS 250
    Lian Li A77


    Thanks a ton guys

    I've use the other monitoring programs and observed the same thing which made me think my PSU was flaky so I hooked up the multimeter and tested it that way and just like the ET6 monitoring section the multimeter read perfect rails so I'm assuming either the other program are flaky or the dynamic energy saving thing is messing with their readings.

    Thank you !!
    Yep i landed up doing exactly the same thing.. checked it with a multimeter and was pretty sure was a reporting bug in everest but none the less was scary

    Well well, F6x bios actually does what it says on the tin, (improves mem 2:10 ratio) my corsair dominator mem OC'd slightly at 2100mhz 8.8.8.24 timings (finally) with a cpu OC of 4400 with HT on at 1.36v
    QPI 1.3v
    VTT 1.535v
    Mem 1.64v
    I have survived a 3DMARK06 bench! When before it would not even boot up, good work Gigabyte, keep them coming! The mem issue was the only thing upsetting me about this mobo, Gig seems they are sorting it out well!¬

    Had to bump up mem to 1.66v and now crysis is running well, dont dare do a Linx stress test yet though

    Linx not stable at all even with sill amounts of volts for vtt, qpi

    UD7 bclk

    Hello, i did f6x bios today, everithing fine, 4.2 1.25v stable, but i can't get more then 211 bclk, the pc doesn't give any image, i've already try with another multi, but always give me the same, black screen! It is possible to fix this problem?

    F6x is not the last bios?! F6a last one?! A before X, i'm not understanding.

    My bios config is this one:

    UD7 experience

    Hi,

    Are there any users here that switched from Foxconn Bloodrage or Evga 760 Classified to this board?

    I am trying to choose between these 3 motherboards for my build.

    How important is the usb 3 and sata 6gb support in your opinion? I definitely do not have any devices to make use of it now.

    I know this is a Gigabyte thread but I would appreciate everyone's honest opinion.

    Thanks!

    5.5GHZ is great.
    Q4EG is a B1, right? and do you have a link to more info on that mod?

    I've been wondering if this Mb could boot up with a X56xx B0, but haven't got any confirmation, yet.

    How important is the usb 3 and sata 6gb support in your opinion? I definitely do not have any devices to make use of it now.

    I know this is a Gigabyte thread but I would appreciate everyone's honest opinion.

    Thanks!
    Yes, I went from Evga E60 to UD7, the E60 handled memory better, but UD7 is sorting itself in regards to mem with each bios. The UD7 I find slightly more stable maybe due to its better 24 phase power design, and a cooler board in regards to temps, theres not much in it though, you wont be dissapointed with either

    There seems to be OCP kicking in around 5.5ghz with all cores loaded. I can drop cores and scale higher on vcore.
