I will be joining the ranks of the GA-990FXA-UD5 users in a month or two. I am planning on getting an AMD Phenom II X4 980 BE for use with it. I am planning on cooling my CPU with a Noctua NH-U12P SE2 (if it will fit inside my case).
Why not look at getting a closed water cooling kit? I got a H100 Corsair for use with my temporary 965be until I wait to throw in Bulldozer.

The CPU temps via speccy are 22* Celsius and my core temps are 31. Can't really go wrong with that. You do needa big case though, for my 990FX UD5 I needed to get a Coolermaster HAF932 to fit in the push/pull config I was after.

^^^Speaking of tight fits, my UD7 barely fits into my old Antec 300 case. I had to remove my DVD drive in order to install the MB. If you try to use more than one DVD drive, it wont work in the Antec 300 because of where the 24pin power connection is. However, this is just my experience with the UD7 in the Antec 300.

No worries, I was looking at some reviews on the 980 after replying to your earlier post and wow it looks like an awesome chip. Hell I'm half tempted to grab one too LoL

On the 990FXA-UD3 temp sensors, i was mad at not knowing what was 71C on TMPIN2 so i decided to test with focused cooling to see where the temps dropped.
EVERY temp seemed unrespnsive to my fans except TMPIN0 which i found to be located in the lower right part of the mobo, the southbridge im guessing (dropped from 41 to 28C with the fan on there). or perhaps could be mobo temp?

Then, on TMPIN1, ive noticed it follows closeley my core temps (+-3C) so its maybe socket temp or something like that.

That leaves me with TMPIN2 being NB or the mosfets. if so, which one of those doesnt have a tmpin? still it isnt sure if tmpin1 is socket or something like that so that could be one of those but to my knowledge they dont follow core temp so closeley.

After 2 hours of testing, and with more questions that answers, i was just left with a big *** on tmpin1 and tmpin2

So have anyone found out anything on this yet?

WeirdHarold, thanks for the advice. I just got back from work and I'll try changing my fans around to different headers. I've got to be honest though, this happens very randomly. The last time was about two weeks ago. I'm just worried because it usually locks up my entire system when the message comes up. I'll keep you posted on what I find. Thanks again.

Just want to let everyone know that I just ordered the EK chipset and MOSFET water block for the UD7. As I had stated previously I'm not too pleased with my TMPIN2 temperature and I'm pretty sure that's the North Bridge and MOSFETs. I'm getting temps in the low to high 60s when at full load. I'm hoping that this water block takes care of that issue. It should also give me extra overclocking headroom. I'll keep you guys and gals posted on how it goes. The kit should arrive in the next couple of days. Wish me luck.

Cool Bram! Post some pictures up when you have it installed man.

robbo2, I sure will. Would you like to see some pics as it's being installed or just final installation pics?
post #1279 of 12377
Some final pics would be great as well as some results on the temperature drop. Be good to see if it's worth installing a block or just having a fan blowing over the VRM's.

Sounds good. I'll keep everyone posted on how it goes and how well it actually performs. It costs about 85 bucks so it better be worth it.
