I just got my board I am within 30 days as well as the processor. I don't think I am going to exchange it though. It would only cost $40 plus I am sure there will be restocking fees. I don't think it would be worth it. Plus the Piledriver is schedule to release early 2012..maybe. IDK. Are you guys happy with what you have now?

Yes, don't worry about that.
You should be good to go!
8150's turbo boost gets this thing to 4,2-4,3ghz so yeah, shouldn't have any problems at 4,5.

Wait for it.
I was fairly disappointed when I saw the bench setup the Plesio guys got, 8 core CPU getting the crap its crap beaten by a quad core Intel, that's just pathetic, period.

http://www.overclock.net/amd-cpus/11...ng-charts.html

it was done with a UD7, upto 5.3ghz too, but of course not stable. I also have performance scaling charts with really everything you can think of.

Can some one please help, when I am stress testing my vcore it is jumping by up to 0.1v How can I change or stop this?

I think it has something to do with the PLL settings but when I change them from normal they seem to do nothing.

I currently have bios F2, I can't seem to update my bios at the moment (mind you I have not really spent time trying), is it really needed if I dont plan on upgrading or change my system?

It's normal for these UD3s. What volts are you using?
If your system is running nicely now, I don't see the need to flash the BIOS. If you do flash it, go with the F4.

I currently have a 4.2Ghz with 1.5v in bios and during stressing it hits 1.62v at the most, temp. is still in the 50's (Celsius).

Would changing to the F4 bios help with the occasional problem of the usb ports not being activated during windows start up some times?

If not I guess there is no need then.

ooh You see that huge kind of a jump.. I am not sure but I think you're the first here using a 6 core on a UD3. 6 core users experience the same thing on UD5s and UD7s. I only see a vdroop.. And that droop is tiny.
The F4 did help with usb ports not activating, yes.

Exactly what I wanted to know.
My sig rig upgraded to a 8150 @ 4.5ghz would have no issues?

Hey guys,
I'm having trouble unlocking the 4th core of my Phenom II x2 555 BE with my UD3, and I'm not sure why, since it would unlock fine with my last board, which was an ASUS. I've set everything to stock and tried unlocking it through the BIOS, but it always freezes the second I start Prime95. Does anyone have any ideas why it would work with the older board and not this one?
