Thank you for your response. Have you noticed any other problems besides the CPU voltage and PCIe x8?

There are a few features that are missing, mostly voltage options, but yeah i tried the ivy bridge on the award and it wasn't good, couldn't overclock cpu beyond 3.8, the uefi will let you get to 4.4 with auto voltage and in general it's the better bios for your cpu.
If gigabyte give us the option to control cpu voltage on these boards i'm gonna invest in a nice cooler. : )

Which voltages do you now get in idle and at full load? I noticed quite a large vdroop on this board, ~0.04v. That is strange to me because it has a good voltage regulation with 12 phases.

Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P. I don't want to use BETA UEFI because there is some important missing parts, like CPU voltage etc.
I just want to know roughly when you will get an official UEFI.

Patience my friend. There is (almost) nothing else you can do. And you must feel "happy" cause for your your model Gigabyte has realeased a pre beta BIOS. For my motherboard (Z68X-UD7) there is no BIOS at all. Paying 300€ for the high-end model, and having no support at all, when the rest of the vendors have full IB support for their mobos. That's why my UD7 is on sale, and that's why Im never gonna trust Gigabyte again. And I'm really sorry to say that, cause I've trusting Gigabyte since 2003.
But a month ago, they preferred to reply to my ticket that "since the end of June the BIOS would have been released". As anyone can see, this is nothing more than a ridiculous lie. I think that they should treat their customers with more respect and answer them with a little more sincerity.

Gigabyte has focused on the Z77 models which is something completely rational. But what is totally irrational, is leaving the rest of your s1155 models with no support. And I believe that three months (since the IB launch), is A LOT of time.

No LLC for CPU voltage in Z68XP UD4 with U1g !!
**OC Impossible!**

EasyTune6 could set LLC from windows so option must be there. Please activate it !

As i've posted before, with my z68 board coupled with Ivy Bridge CPU my main PCIE lane with a gtx 580 has been castrated to x8 speed.
People of Gigabyte, if i threw in a gen 3 GPU i would be able to get gen3 x16 speed on that same lane right?
*thanks for your time, it's much appreciated. : )

ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

This morning I put the beta UEFI and I have no problem with PCIe x16.


If you put GPU with PCIe gen. 3 you will get that speed only if you have Z68XP-UD3P rev. 1.3, 1.0 only has PCIe 2.0.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
