Flagship model should be more compatible Sin then the lower grade boards... that's how other vendors approach it. I applaud gigabyte doing the lower models too, but the flagship should be at least as compatible.

Leeghoofd is right...when I buy (I don't say I bought it) the best and the most expensive motherboard from manufacturer's offer I expect best compatibility, overclocking, etc...

What I mean is that it requires a BIOS that is optimized for its memory traces and such, because it is much different in design than the other boards.

Care to share how the additional layers of UP7 can be a negative on RAM overclocking? I feel like I can learn something here, its contradicting to everything that I've ever learned, but heck, I enjoy learning, care to enlighten me?

A new BIOS will help.

One can easily throw in a bunch of layers, it will just add to the cost, and not benefit, thereby be pointless, but the more layers, the easier it'll be to shorten the routing of the traces.
Now I do not have the blueprints, nor do I think posting those online would make one very popular, but I have faith in them knowing their job fully, I do not in any way question the actual hardware of UP7.
I just dont agree that the memory clocking got anything to do with layers.

Without knowing it, I'd put my money on BIOS being the issue, the tighter, the lower frequency, and UP7 is meant to be a top performer. I personally do not see this is a negative if it is the case - it isnt entry level after all

- But perhaps I should shut up regarding UP7 untill Gigabyte fixes their EMEA issues.

I should have been a bit more specific I guess. Its not ALL memory, just SOME memory.

my bbse work just fine
