While working on this article we spoke to a number of companies and found out that getting Ivy Bridge running properly on all of the older 6-series motherboards was more tricky than first thought.

Intel said that even they are going through some growing pains right now.

We feel it is our obligation to tell you what is going on before the processors go on sale as this is an issue that hasn’t gotten any media attention from what we can tell.

We have been in contact with Intel and Gigabyte and after talking with the right people in both the United States and Taiwan we feel that Gigabyte can come up with another ‘patch’ for the Award BIOS that resolves this issue, but right now they don’t have one available.

We are currently developing a new BIOS for these boards to resolve this issue and plan to make them available in the next week or two.” Gigabyte Taiwan informed us that they are working on developing a new BIOS for the Gigabyte 6 series motherboards that will fix this issue.
