Is that a Corsair H50, H60 or H70 cooling kit?

That is a H60 with an added Cooler Master Excalibur 120mm fan in push config (stock H60 fan sandwiched on the other side of the rad)

I went with the H60 because of its CRAZY easy mounting system with AMD procs. No back plate either. I'm Very impressed with it.

Mad,

Looks like it's working very well for you!
Great!

I'm sure looking forward to receiving the H80 this coming Monday via the Egg.

I just can't seem to get the steps right to set the memory to it's proper speed of 1866. I usually avoid raising the voltage if possible and since these DIMMS are rated to run at 1866 at 1.5, I should not have to, but I don't know.

When I switch to manual and change the multiplier to reach 1866, it won't boot and I revert back to default settings

I guess I'll need to go over the latency settings as well, so I'll look at that when I get home tonight. I've been too tired the last few nights to look at it with much detail.

Thanks,

i had a similar issue with ripjawX 2133 mhz mem, 2 x 4 gig. Wouldn't do more than 1600 or crash.
Was a bit miffed that i was having trouble. Ultimately took mem modules out , & reinserted with an extra nudge in the down force, little bit of a wiggle (very technical) to make sure was fully seated and BINGO got the 1866mhz straight away. Was thinking i had a brummy module but all seems ok now after the "super special little wiggle technique". Basically i was running out of options in settings etc....... always tripped or wouldn't start from bios changes. Dunno what was the cause, m'be some residue from manufacture on contacts (shouldn't be that) but all good now. After the hassle & worry I'm not even going to try getting them higher, just happy they work for now. This is on a 990fx ud7

in case i haven't done so......................WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST FOR 2012 FOLKS

Hey all,

Still no OC here but trying to make sure I'm even going to be able to with my current setup. The attached report was run while running Prime95 blend with round off checking, two runs of Intel Burn test at Very High, AVG virus scanning and 3DMark11 all at the same time. I can't imagine a scenario where I would use that much juice or ram playing BF3 or MW3 or anything else for that matter but there ya go. Max temp was 49c and I really don't have a clue what the rest of the report is telling me.

For those that DO understand all the numebrs and stuff, can someone tell me if it looks normal for my rig and what if any OC room I have currently. I may be able to drop for an H60 if it would make THAT much difference.

Any info is appreciated.

Sig rig is accurate but just in case-

hey guys i know this is off topic but...
I just got the ud3 everything runs great .I read elswhere that temps in monitoring tools are as such
temp1 system
temp2 cpu
temp3 nb
The problem is when i stress my cpu with prime the temp that raises the fastest is temp3 leading me to believe temp3 is actually cpu temp
idle temp1 27c , temp2 26c temp3 30c
100% load temp 1 29c temp2 37c temp3 44c
if temp2 was cpu woldnt it rise much faster than nb temps at 100% cpu load ? AMD od coincides with this thought showing cpu temp the same as temp3 . While easytune6 shows cpu temp same as temp2. any thoughts .

Look like you have a little headroom there,

However it also seems that you CPU's voltage is already a bit hit for its base clocks. I would try bumping the multiplier .5 at a time up and testing for stability at least 30 min of prime95 blend each time. See where it tops out with the voltage it has already.

Use something like HwMonitor Or Coretemp to measure the temp. I really don't trust the sensors on the MB.

Again as I said Above, I really dont pay attention to the MB sensors. (never have on any board TBH). I only care about Proc core temp and what my IR gun tells me wink.gif

The MB northbridge on this board does get blazing hot, but dont worry about it. Its designed to take the heat... however your finger isn't... tongue.gif

My opinion, uninstall the crap software that gigabyte passes off and use trusted software tools. thumb.gif

i used hw monitor , speedfan ,ohwmonitor and aida 64 to crossreference these temps . All reading the same just wanted to let everyone know the temp they are looking at may not be what they think it is . almost positive temp3 in any monitoring software is cpu with this board .

I disagree that Temp 3 is the CPU, but I DO agree there are some inconsistencies in what is reading what.

Pic 1 is my readings at idle. Note the CPU temps are at 21.5c on OWM and 22c on Core Temp. Temp 2 (thought to be the CPU is at 27c which sounds about right. Temp 3 being 12c tells me it is probably not my CPU.

Pic 2 is at full load with ITB and Prime both running. Oddly- the CPU temps didn't change on either program which confuses the hell out of me, but temp 2 (thought to be CPU) did jump to 43c which sound accurate.

I'm pretty good and confused now, but I'm not convinced that Temp 3 has anything to do with the CPU.

Anyone???

if I where to take a stab at it, I say none of them are related to the CPU.

I'd figure that the sensors are monitoring ambient (case temps), northbridge, and mosfet temps...

guys tmp3 is not the CPU TEMP!

TM3 is the north bridge temp.

gigabyte support confirms this, my results confirm this. Don't believe me or gigabyte? put a fan on your northbridge and watch tmp3 temps drop!

on the ud3 the north bridge runs pretty darn hot. On the ud5-7 they have somewhat improved cooling on the north bridge possibly because of the extra PCI-Express lanes causing more load on the north bridge.

anywho yes the north bridge runs hot, its not a problem. I added a fan to mine for added insurance and since i'm overclocked maybe better fsb headroom.
