post #131 of 12377
I'll be getting my UD7 Wednesday, because I spent my mobo funds on a reference 6950 2GB the night before they were available to buy. Not that I feel bad about it at all, seeing that NCIX(US) is price gouging us on shipping charges (and the board price too, it seems).

I'll wait for SuperBiiz, or the Egg to get them in stock.

to the people that have picked up a 990fxa board, have you guys had any problems with the memory you're currently running?

I have had this board for a few days now and I have to say that it is absolutely amazing. My current rig has a Phenom II 955 @3.8 GHz, 4 gigs of Kingston DDR3 1333 MHz RAM, a GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and a Kingston V+ 128 gig SSD. I'm going to try and include some screen shots and pics. Let me know if there are any benchmarks that you want me to run. I have been playing Crysis 2 with this and it runs incredibly smooth at maximum settings. I am also using a BenQ 1680x1050 22 inch LCD monitor. And of course I'm using a Cooler Master HAF X nVidia Edition case.biggrin.gif

I am testing a UD5 as we speak. No problems with memory but I am falling 60MHz short of my high stable overclock with a Phenom II 980 @ 4.514Ghz with the 890FXA-UD5. I am stable after 1 hr prime95 @4.45Ghz/ frown.gif. Keep getting a rounding error and I increased each voltage setting by 1 notch and cannot pull it off. Still, not a bad OC stable. I will see if I can pull off a 4.7Ghz suicide tomorrow and put it under dry ice.(5.6Ghz??? weeeee!)

Don't forget to add your CPU-Z validation and system specs to the spreadsheet guys!
This is a great way to support our community with tested configuration info.


Also, PM me with memory recommendations and warnings so I can keep that spreadsheet updated as well.

Thanks,

JE Nightmare, I'm having no problems with my Kingston Hyper X memory. I haven't tried overclocking it yet though.

If people are having success with memory please PM me the model number so I can add it to the "Member Tested" list.

Likewise, please PM me the model number of any memory that is giving you trouble so I can note it as well.

I'd like to make the memory compatibility list as comprehensive as possible.

Thanks,

~fidof650

The memory I'm using is the Kingston "LoVo" KHX1333C9D3UK2/4GX. I've had no problems with it. I have yet to overclock it though. I hope this helps.
