EK are the only ones to offer one so far. They make two versions of it though. One with a clear acrylic top and one with a black acetal top.

yeah i checked them out and saw. I was hoping there'd be a heatkiller version but form their forums sounds unlikely. thanks

All of the 9 series chipset boards will support bulldozer, some of the recent Bios updates include patches for better support for bulldozer as AMD starts to release more of the specs on the chips. The F5 bios for instance says: "Update CPU AGESA 0.0.9.2 for AM3+" the key word here is Update. They are just trying to minimize issues when bulldozer is released, I have a feeling that even a board with the F1 bios would recognize a bulldozer chip but might not fully support all of it's functions till you update the bios.

Basically the PCIe x1 cards with their tiny little 2-prong connector thingys don't look like they'd fit the much longer slot of regular PCIe slots and I can't find a clear answer after googling for a half hour.

I currently have an Asus Xonar DG populating my PCI slot and my wi-fi card in the PCIe x1 (top slot, next to NB heatsink).

As it stands, I cannot crossfire, but if I could purchase a PCIe sound card and run it in the bottom PCIe x4 slot, freeing up the PCI slot above, I could feasibly crossfire my inbound 2gb MSI TFIII 6950 PE/OC, which would leave me really chuffed

Thanks in advance.

*Edit - my gut instincts tell me that once I overclock the hell out of my 6950 I won't care, given that my current plan is to stick single-GPU and upgrade to the GTX600 or HD7000 series early-mid next year. Still, nice to know my options regardless ...
A PCIe x16 physical slot will support x16,x4 and x1 cards so you should have no problem installing your x1 sound card in any of the x16 slots. I also believe that you can use a x4 slot for a x1 card, but I've never tried it since the x16 slots were always in a better location for my needs.

i shall join this club soon as i finish studying

can anyone explain or give reasons as to why this board (boards) is better than the crosshair v or the sabertooth? 990fx obviously..

I have the UD5 just in case that matters..

Hi guys new here and I have some questions regarding the UD3.

About 4 months ago I purchased an MSI 870A Fuzion Power Edition Motherboard and threw it into my machine. I was curious on how the hydra chip-set would perform... needless to say the north bridge (temp2) had overheating issues and I was getting random shut downs and the OS freezing once a day on average. Mind you this was at a basic 400mhz OC.

I would see temps of 45 idle and 60+ under load some times. So I placed an 80mm fan over it and while that dropped the temp I was still getting random PC shutdowns and OS freezes.

So I ripped that sucker out and purchased a GA-990FXA-UD3. I rebuilt my system today and I'm still seeing temps of 40 idle and 57+ under load on the 400mhz OC.

I'm only really guessing that temp2 is the NB... Thing is now I have temp3 also doing the same with this board.

I'm starting to regret going with AMD now. I used to have a quad Intel and could OC it to 3.8 / 4ghz no problems at all with anything getting over hot.

I ordered a couple of spot coolers that I'll try out .. but I'm not holding my breath.

I was hoping to OC this setup to 4ghz+ (with better cpu cooling) down the track but it seems that won't be happening.

On the plus side... no Random pc shutdowns or freezes YET! lol.

So my questions...

1: Is anyone else having issues with the NB temps?
2: I would be greatfull if someone has a link or can help me with settings to OC this setup to 4Ghz. I'm sure someone has the same hardware.

Cheers

What are you using to monitor your NB temps?
Also, how are you overclocking? Raising your multiplier or front side bus(FSB)? Since you have a 1090T you only need to raise your multiplier to overclock. No need to touch your FSB. Yea, its different than your old quad. I am in the same boat. Coming from a C2Duo E8400. Still learning the workings of AMD systems.

However, posting a screen shot of CPUz.(Main, Mem, SPD), CoreTemp would help us help you!

Yes I have it too, but my temps haven't raised for even one °C after I overclocked my NB from 2000MHz to 2600MHz @ 1.375v.

Benz is that the only thing you did to get those temps stable?

is 1.375v correct?

Going to give it a try.

Rebelord that's correct I only increased the multiplier.

I noticed on the ET 6 that temp 3 seems to be the CPU????

Ohh and I didn't use ET6 to OC ... lol just used to to compare temps with SpeedFan
