Which BIOS would you all recommend for the 1100T using the UD3 ?

F6f has been fine for me with the 965@3.8, but as I understand the x6 may require other considerations.

its a toss up between F5 and F6F for me. Stay away from F6C, E.

F5 seems to be the best overclocking bios. F6F has more features related to bulldozer (apm, and disable cores) . F6F however seems to be a little less stable than F5, however on the upside with Bulldozer at least the Cpu Throttling has been fixed. I had some issues with F5 and cool and quiet working properly, disabled it wasn't a problem. The issue was (stuttering in games, and music playback)

Overall i suggest F6F.

Hello All.  Finally took a couple of snaps of my UD3.  I added the small fan on the NB heatsink when I removed it to re-seat it using icDiamond TIM and getting rid of the "spring holders". I was reading about the heat of the NB on this thread and while checking my heatsink by finger, the darn thing pushed downn raising the other end. Not secure at all in my book.

So...Off With It's Head...and back on with a spinning hat. Very easy to do. The fan is a little pcu Intel one that I had in my box of goodies. I snipped the shroud down to the minimum needed and just lined it up center and drilled a hole in the proper place for the left screw. The screw is screwed directly into the heatsink after drilling that hole also through the top 2 "horizontal fins. This was actually enough to hold the fan securely, but I added the silver small right bolt and globbed in some GOOP to make a "bridge" to the far right fin to hold that side secure also because the plastic on the fan is very brittle from age or whatever, so just precautionary. Different fans, different methods for sure.

 

The VRM zone fan was easy also. Put a proper length bolt and nuts in the bottom left screw hole and GOOP"ed it to the USB 3.0 casing and followed with GOOP on the top left to the USB 2.0 casing and a "dob" on the heatsink.

 

Had to use 3.5 jacks for connections seiing it was all I had and wanted to get it over with.

 

I'm not sure what to check the temps with. Have AIDA64 and have heard that "Motherboard" is the NB, but not sure about that.

Hardware Monitor   TMPIN0  37c

                                           1  41c

                                           2  34c

I am getting her ready for Piledriver, whatever the outcome is with it. Currently impressed with this fill-in  "Phenom" 840 x 4 for $60.  I will be getting one of the  Corsair water cooling solutions with PD. 

 

Anyway,  I love my UD3  Full 1.jpgNB Fan.JPG

whoa,

Its a mad max computer! I half expected to see some black leather in there somewhere! tongue.gif

That will certainly do the trick!

I however have not noticed any instability as a result of heat with the NB. Its obvious that it doesn't have the most efficient cooling... But its fairly happy at the higher temperatures.

I currently have a 15mhz OC on he PCIe bus and 400mhz OC on the HT Link and haven't seen temps rise. But your cooling will certainly provide longevity.

Ever think about getting some copper pipe making the PC into a steam-punk piece?

Nice work though, I like the ingenuity.

MadGoat,

That H80 is a fine cooling solution. Keeps temps within bounds even when running prime95, cpuz & chwm.

How the heck did you get F6f to work? I only get BSODs with it. Clock interrupt errors.. F6c works splendidly though.

Thanks Madgoat,

 

Mad Max .... I love it!  You just named this rig for me.....thank you!     And yeah, I have tons of leather, good idea. The case is actually a mATX that I added six inches of wood to the bottom so this board would fit. It's also shrouded in wood with a foam backing for sound, (carpeted on front). I know, too much time on my hands.

 

You are absolutely right about the longevity. That's what I'm going for. I don't need a pc that can run a small country, just a nice reliable htpc , encoder and Mass Effect player.

 

I refuse to give Intel a peso of my money if possible. I also like Gigabyte mboards as have had good experiences with my past two.

 

Steampunk.....I like it.  (had to Google it, but I like it).

 

hmmmm........leather

LOL! Love it...

You should keep a build log from all the stuff you've done and are doing! That's what this community loves.thumb.gif

Sounds good.  I will.    Thanks again.  Have been checking out Steampunk photos and sites, such as...  http://www.datamancer.net/

 

 

WOW !

OK guys, I am having a serious problem...
4 DIMM's of 1866 RAM (16GB), doesn't run at 1866...
Any clues?
Did I just touch the devil...or it's temporary issue to resolved with new BIOS?
Anyone else having that issue?mad.gif
