the best settings for the ga-x58a-ud3r is on top of a junk pile. these mobo's have a very high failure rate because of a defective design. i am willing to bet that your instabilities are related to faulty vregs. my advice is to get rid of it before it melts your cpu and fries your ram and gpu. and gigabyte does not honor the warranty when it fails so dont even waste your time with an rma.

Whats your specs first of all. CPU, RAM, and PSU.

Not enough power can cause instability.
When you overclock the processor, you overclock RAM as well which can cause instability.
When your processor overheats (past 100C) it would shutdown too.
If you something like a i7 920 or 930, don't expect 4.3ghz out of it. You only get that with the extreme editions or with luck. 3.8Ghz however should be within reach.

And honestly the Gigabyte x58 UD3R is considered one of the beat boards for the buck. Considering I recently RMA'd a UD7 which has similar design and got one back, I can't see how you can say they don't honor warranty?

My advice: you shouldn't just pick settings from a particular setup and expect it to perform as well. I believe you are referring to the SBM machine at Tom's, and that one has a hefty watercooling system. As anyone would tell you; CPUs in particular can be more or less OC friendly.
Rather you should pick any good 'howto' particular to the 920/930 and follow the incremental steps.
For instance: http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/showthread.php?t=...

With regards to the settings you are specing; I think that your whole system could melt if HT is on. As I understand that high Vtt could itself cause instability. Check those temps, you are probably running in high 80's at least

I think that you should lower both Vcore/Vtt to something like 1.375/1.33 or something. BLCK=170-190, 21x and start inching up. If Linx get you higher than 85C, you might want to hold off incrementing voltages.

I have found a workable setting now.
Gigabyte actually has a OC guide for i7 920 with X58a UD3R MB.
I follow the principle of it and OC my i7 930 to 4 Ghz at 38 DegC with turbo boost at low load.
It is very stable for 4 days now.
I am going to wait for couple more daysbefore I load up my program.
It would interesting to see how fast Autocad will fly on this rig.

Interested in what settings you developed - I have a similar setup.

This came from bilbat, go to http://www.mediafire.com/?5moyzjmqvtv
download the OCing the Ex 58 EXT GB Guide and follow the principle of it.

Need to watch the CPU cooler.

I am at 4.0 Hg with turbo boost on for couple month now.
