Yep...891 core is all she will do now. With the cpu @4.5.

The i7-920 @4.3 on the Asus board I had the 580 at 970 core.

Post Re: i7-2600K
I been diggin. The Gigabyte UDX series and USB 3.0

There are two ways that our USB/SATA 3.0 works: one way is Turbo mode where it uses PCI-E lanes to communicate directly with the CPU for best performance. The other way is through the P55 chipset where it is limited to PCI-E gen 1 speed (2.5Gb/s) – when turbo mode is disabled. The point is that Gigabyte P55A boards are all about options: we provide options for the user to decide if he wants 5Gb/s SSUSB for high-speed backup or if he prefers SLI/CFX while still enjoying USB/SATA 3.0 – albeit at a lower speed. And in auto mode the system will decide for the user, i.e. if there is a 2nd VGA card then SLI/CF takes precedence, but if there is only 1 VGA card and a device is plugged into a USB/SATA 3.0 slot then superspeed data transfer takes precedence.

Just a couple of numerous topics on the subject:
It looks like this problem is unique to Gigabyte's implementation of usb 3.0+.

Wow just figured it out i was looking through other forums of people with the same issues and in one of them someone suggested to disable the USB 3.0 Turbo Mode because it uses some of the pipelines and after doing that everything was fixed!!!

Sooo, ... you're convinced that it was the mobo and the PCI-e lane slowing down your GPU?

Likely never. LGA1155 is not a high-end platform and as such 6-cores have no purpose on it.

And generally speaking, the home user doesn't need more than 4 cores w/ HT anyhow.

that's what we said few years ago when first Athlon X2 came out. but games becomes more advanced, and demanding, so are softwares and encoding packages.

I LOVE IT!!.. i actually thought of trading in my Charger SRT for a Challenger SRT, but scraped that idea when i saw the 2011 Mustang GT 5.0.

Yeah, but I don't think LGA1155 will ever see six-core. Just like S754 never saw dual-core, instead AMD came out with S939. In this case, Intel has their LGA2011 platform coming out which will likely have 6 or 8 core CPUs.

More info

With Gigabyte boards that have uSB 3 and SATA 6 capability, there are limits or bottleneck when running SATA 6 and USB 3. In particular, with the Gigabyte chipset when you use Turbo SATA3 / USB3.0 enabled in BIOS setup, 1st PCIex16 slot will run at x8 bandwidth and 2nd PCIex16 slot will be disabled.

1366 boards experience no limitations on PCI-E GFX lanes when SLI or XFire is added and remain at x16 speeds
1156 boards drop to x8 on the PCI-E GFX lane


The Asus 1156 Boards do not suffer from that problem.

Are you convinced now that you should have waited on the upgrade? ... LGA2011 is looking better and better for the high-end enthusiast. I believe the X79 chipset will be far more robust than the Z68 will ever be ... :ugeek:

That was with 1156 ;) SATA6 is built into the Intel chipset now and only USB3 should be a 2ndary PCIE controller. IMO you can disable USB3 as it has no purpose currently and you likely don't need more SATA ports than what the Intel chipset provides.

Yeah, well, Intel didn't think straight when it did the 1156 platform ... short-lived and probably a big waste of time ... :doh:
