post #1671 of 12377
Hey guys, just got my UD3 yesterday, along with a 1090T and some corsair ram. Had to make the jump to ddr3 as my IMC on my 940 was starting to show its age, and I had to loosen timings every couple of months to let it keep up.

Have only played around with a few things so far, but I like what I am seeing so far. Fairly stable voltage, and good Overclocking capability. I want to get to at least 4GHZ, then start tightening up the ram. First venture with DDR3

Have no idea why it double posted. If a mod sees this, can you erase one of these. Thanks

Well, I might be right there with ya.

I've loved the board all the way up until now... seems everything on the F5 bios just screwed the pooch. Last bios was F3b and the little bugger ran great. (with a few exceptions to not seeing my keyboard at post, and a little thing here and there).

Now I'm unstable in windows no matter what I do. I put everything to stock... still unstable. So much so, that crash after crash corrupted my raid array.

Tried to reload windows... I cant get windows to validate and the screen goes black, things start crashing...

Then I tried a prior backup from my Home Server. NOPE! Damn ethernet controller is recognized but the damn thing wont initialize so it can find my server!

So I'm sitting here growing angrier by the moment....

OH, and just to make sure my other components are solid... I did a full surface scan on both of my drives (2.5hrs a piece), and I ran memtest for over 7 hours without one hiccup.

Yup, I'm pissed.

Haven't read all your posts as I've been busy, but do you have any other RAM to try? I had similar problems on another motherboard. Ran memtest and it said that everything was peachy. Tried different RAM and the problems where gone.
On the UD3 I only get IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL if I attempt to go above 2600MHz on the CPU/NB. Have had very few BSODs with this mobo. Not braggin', just sayin'. smile.gif

I wish i had some extra memory to try.

However, at this point it really doesn't matter as i cant even get windows to load now (let alone activate). keeps giving me errors about it not being able to create a system partition.

I tell ya, I'm about over this. to go from dead stable and happy to this is redick...

I have the Rev 1.0 version of the UD3 and just ordered my FX-8150 the other day. Now there's 5 BIOS updates for the REV 1.0 (F1-F5). My question is do I need to flash each one in succession or just flash it with F5?

Well time for an interesting update. I just got RMA number but before I packed it all up, I wanted to try all the suggestions here plus load the F6 to see what would happen. So I cleared the CMOS, installed F6 from memory stick (cleared DMI pool), formatted my new SSD, set BIOS to AHCI BEFORE new windows install, installed Win 7 64 bit, updated everything and ta-da....board works like a champ again. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions....one of them did the trick and saved me from doing an unnecessary RMA thumb.gif Now if I can recover the data from my old SSD life will be good.

So what has this taught me? I can only conclude that the old F5 BIOS was at least partly to blame for all my previous troubles. Nothing else would explain all the odd symptoms I was having (BIOS and motherboard problems look very similar). For all you UD5 owners upgrade to the F6 BIOS soon before your system starts crashing like mine did.

UD7 and FX 8120 paired together...
Be afraid, be very afraid.

Personally, I'm very pissed off right now.
Another 10 hours until I can chat with AMD.

Al right guys the board works.

Quick question though...
Should Virtualization be enabled?
And where do I find the ACPI 2 so I can enable it?
