Yeah, but that's not what i meant.

I mean, is it really a Gigabyte thing? I never heard from it and never had this before on my previous Gigabyte board.

I don't believe the board is broken so..

I updated the BIOS using qflash but now it freezes whenever I press delete (to reput in my OC settings). Pressing END for qflash does nothing either. Windows works fine, but my OC is gone :/

edit: finally. apparently I have forgotten that you must hold it down forever, or else entering BIOS only partially loads leading to it getting stuck apparently. still, gonna have to look up some stuff but at least cpu Ghz is decent now.

Any opinions or experience on good ways to cool the UD3 Rev 4.0 VRMs? I currently have my stock AMD CPU cooling fan seated on the VRMs. It works well, but could be better.

I'm considering throwing a 14cm fan to pull on my evo and push on the VRMs. If I do that, should I still keep the AMD fan on the VRMs?

I'm not interested in replacing the heat sink.

If you are not interested in replacing the heat sink, mount a fan over the area.

I replaced the heat sink on my UD3.

I have a 120mm fan blowing on the back side of the motherboard on the vrm's and the CPU socket, temps lowered by 10C! I also have 2 80mm fans blowing on vrm heat sink.

:thumb:I do have a fan mounted over the VRM heatsink.

How much did the VRM replacement help you out? How much effort and cash to replace?

Hur, post pics? I don't know that my old case would accommodate all of that.

The heatsink itself wasn't too expensive, had to jury rig some spare fasteners I had laying around to mount it though. As far as the VRM temps, they were so much improved even with whatever overclocks I am running that I don't even bother watching them at all anymore.

You're cooling setup looks impressive. What kind of volts and clocks do you have on your 6350? I'm currently at 1.48v and 4.6 ghz on my 8320e. If I could cool the VRM's better I think I could get 4.7 maybe 4.8 without water cooling and energy efficiency features activated.

For Summer I am at 4.2Ghz and 1.375v.

I think my winter clocks are closer to the voltages and speed you are running. Can't remember off of the top of my head.
