Talking 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.

System config:
  • Core i7 3930K 3133B464 Sandy Bridge-E
  • EK Supreme LT H20 with Fesser 480 Rad
  • Gigabyte X79-UD5 F5d bios
  • 4x 2GB A-Data 2000X Elpida BBSE
  • 2x HIS HD3850 CrossFire
  • 60GB G.Skill Phoenix Pro SSD
  • 1200W Silverstone OP1200 PSU
  • Additional cooling: 180mm Silverstone fan + 140mm Xigmatech fan
  • WinXP Pro SP3 32bit (cpuz not detecting all 4GB nor is it detecting SPD for memory ??)

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

3dmark06



3dmark05



3dmark2003



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?
