Aren't all joints running with the studs required to be on framing?

"R702.3.5 Application. Maximum spacing of supports and the size and spacing of fasteners used to attach gypsum board shall comply with Table R702.3.5. Gypsum sheathing shall be attached to exterior walls in accordance with Table R602.3(1). Gypsum board shall be applied at right angles or parallel to framing members. All edges and ends of gypsum board shall occur on the framing members, except those edges and ends that are perpendicular to the framing members. Interior gypsum board shall not be installed where it is directly exposed to the weather or to water. "From: http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...002_par010.htm

"
R702.3.2 Wood framing. Wood framing supporting gypsum board shall not be less than 2 inches (51 mm) nominal thickness in the least dimension except that wood furring strips not less than 1-inch-by-2 inch (25 mm by 51 mm) nominal dimension may be used over solid backing or framing spaced not more than 24 inches (610 mm) on center." From: http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...002_par007.htm (Bold is mine).

Gypsum requires positive attachment to framing.....otherwise it voids the fire warranty.
Anybody know of a different code to use than those, let me know- I could be wrong......thanks.

I had heard that this requirement meant that you couldn't use rock splicers on walls required by code to be fire resistant such as interior facing garage walls.

When anything like this is in question, there is only one authority. That is your own LOCAL Building Department... the people who will be doing your inspections.

i had the same situation with 8'2'' - 8'3'' walls and after debating on where to put the rip i decided instead to go with 54" drywall.

I thought about that too but that still leaves me a 4 inch gap, just not sure where's the best spot for that gap.

I just did my 12x12 ceiling with 3 12foot sheets of lightweight 1/2 inch. No butt joints woot woot. That new lightweight is great. A 12 foot sheet was lighter than your standard 4x8 5/8
