[Official] Gigabyte GA-990FXA-Series Owners Thread/Club - Page 1161

post #11601 of 12377
Sorry guys, I'm new here, and I have a question to ask:
I have a GA-990FXA-UD3 rev. 4 (Bios F3)
CPU: FX-8370
RAM: 16GB DDR3 2400MHz Tridentx c10 - 2x8GB
Cooler: NH-D14

My concern is that I'm working stable from one week to 2400MHz with the memory and the processor 226x21 = 4746 @ 1,4375v (max temp in full load 59 C° - idle 31 C°)




This configuration with fast memory, can damage my system or CPU?

Thank you all in advance.

I have a GA-990FXA-UD3 with an FX8350 Black Edition. First of all I am really amazed at how people overclock the base clock directly to 245MHz since I cannot go over 229MHz without finding lots of instabily or plainly not booting at all.

But after a lot of research I have realized that the problem may be the NB Clock being to high for it to be stable. The STRANGEST thing actually happen and I can prove it to you all with a video if it is necessary. When I change the NB Frequency in BIOS, to let's say 2000MHz (which is 10x instead of the original 11x), this change DOESN'T take place when I boot. I boot, check HWInfo64 and see "NB Ratio = 11.0x".

And here comes the bomb (or at least I think it's pretty crazy). When I sleep windows and start it again, I check HWInfo64 and BOOM... NB Ratio is correct showing 10x. NB Clock is also correct being the result of Bus Clock*NB Ratio.

Why could this happen??? Does it happen to you guys too?

Things you will need to know.

1. AMD FX CPU's have known dead spots in terms of FSB overclocking.
2. Keep in mind when overclocking via FSB, it will also change the speed of the NB, the hypertransport bus, and the memory.
3. For best results I found it to keep both the ratio for the NB and the Hypertransport bus the same, I think some bios actually force this. The memory can have a separate multiplier.

Default clock of the NB should be 2200mhz, people tend to overclock them to 2400-2600mhz. You can increase the CPU NB voltage to help with stabilizing this.

Honestly the easiest way to overclock would be by the multiplier instead of by FSB.

Thank you Isdmax, but I was talking about my DRAM Frequency and not of NB Frequency.... biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Why you are overclocking the FSB? You have a good memory. When overclocked FSB can lose (errors) SSD,HDD....

Strange that you have a 2400 CPU-NB On a UD3 R3. biggrin.gif

It's a buggy CPU-NB multi. How's Windows Aero?

okay i'm wanting to get started on OC-ing with my GA-990FXA-UD3, and after i borked/bricked my first board, i want to consult to see how i can take precautions about it. SO ANYWAYS, how do i save the stock stable bios to the backup bios? also if i'm using a FX8320 black edition, what are the recommended starting settings i should use? I'm running a custom loop watercooled setup, cooling CPU, GPU, NB, and VRM's w one 120x240 rad, two 120x120 rads, two pumps and two reservoirs.

The best way to go Overclocking with these CPU was to find a balance between the FSB OC and CPU multipler.
