When just running prime95 & cpuz. If I run more programs, get BSODs!
Don't have cool & quiet enabled in bios.

Looks about right...

As for the BSOD's ... Its seems it could be a ram instability. I noticed you have 4 dimms in there. That puts the IMC under quite a load.

Might want to play around with your ram timings a bit, in particular be sure your running 2t with 4 dimms. Maybe increase your channel latencies a tiny bit to see if it will chill the BSOD's out.

Just some ideas... OC looks good though!

OooO, almost forgot...

Try bumping up your ram voltage a bit. Even if its rated at 1.5... most often its on the verge.

My vengeance is rated 1.5 v but even to run its rated latencies I had to push 1.6v to it.

As it stands I have the bios set to 1.7v which gives me 1.66v real voltage to the dimms...

Great idea, increase the ram voltage. I'm running corsair vengeance (4x4 @1600) also. Thanks for the tip.

C1E & Cool & quiet should be disabled.

I guess I was a few pages off for that.

i might get the ud3, i asked a Swedish store and they siad they still have rev 1.0, should i be fine with 1.0 or wait for them getting in rev 1.1? i have been looking at ud5 and ud7 but there seams to be problems with the voltages, is that fixed with 1.1?

ud3 is really good looking, better looking than ud5, ud7 is to expensive for my taste, and i can't motivate paying almost twice the price for that instead of ud3. i have been looking at asus board but i miss the a internal serial connection(worth about $45 for me) and there seams to be problems with sapertooth and crosshair V formula even tough these boards have a lot of features.

UD3 doesn't have all that LCC sht, so vdroop shouldn't be that much of an issue.

I don't know about the 1.1 rev, but i do know that the only difference with th1.2 rev is the secondary sata controller.

The 1.2 they are using a jmicron sata II controller as secondary. (Still has sata III via the amd southbridge) instead of the marvell sata III secondary that the 1.0 1.1uses. Not a big deal at all since you'll want to use the sata III from the amd south bridge anyway.

So, no difference that changes the capability of the board at all...


Now I'm a big fan of the UD3 and I would suggest it to anyone,

However, could you use a serial USB adapter for your needs? Like this?

If so, this would allow you to make a motherboard decision that would be less tied to the serial port availability...

Ok I am getting this board (UD3) friday and I am installing Corsair Memory Vengeance 16 Dual Channel Kit DDR3 1600 MHz 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM into it....I have heard talks about having to adjust the bios so that the memory will actually run at 1600....I have been pouring through this site looking for answers but I cant seem to find anything...

That's easy. Yes, it'll probably default to something lower, like 1000 or 1333. All you have to do, is go into bios, and change 2 things. First, change the multiplier on your ram to 8.0. Second, go to where your ram timing settings are and where it says 7 7 7 13, or 12 12 12 48. or something like that, change those numbers to 8 8 8 24. Save, reboot, and see if it works.
