3930K + Gigabyte X79-UD5 [4x2GB A-Data 2000X Elpida BBSE] preview testing
Over the weekend had a play with new Gigabyte X79-UD5 motherboard with retail Core i7 3930K 3133B464 batch Sandy Bridge-E cpu. Gigabyte X79-UD5 board photos here.
The Gigabyte X79-UD5 shipped with F3 bios, but I immediately flashed the main bios (dual bios) to F5d. Unfortunately, I think the bios still needs work as I tried every setting available and can't get Load Line Calibration (LLC) to work as I always get around 0.048v to 0.06v droop under load, so not sure how that affects my max possible overclocks ? Here's hoping more mature bios updates come
I don't have any Quad Channel X79 memory right now so can't take full advantage of the Gigabyte X79-UD5 and 8 dimm slot support. So decided for first attempt at Quad Channel on X79, I'll use 4x 2GB A-Data 2000X 9-9-9-24 1.6-1.8v rated Elpida BBSE based memory which consists of 2 sets of 2x2GB dual channel kits.

Some 3Dmark was done with 2x GB G.Skill 17600CL7D-4GBPIS 2200Mhz 7-10-10-28 PSC based memory earlier on in dual channel mode (only got 2 sticks)
single HIS HD3850 at stock
2x HD3850 CF runs at 4800Mhz at 1.500v idle and 1.440v load
3dmark2001 seems to be 3930K's weakness performance wise ?
More testing to be done with hopefully more mature Gigabyte X79-UD5 bioses. Hopefully, get some memory manufacturer samples after Xmas for proper Quad Channel testing as well.

Very interesting results... SuperPI seems fast... While memory benchmarks are low... Odd... C-States enabled or disabled?
Anyway, thanks for finding time to test, but... no Hypers action?
