My case is a BitFenix Outlaw.

I can also confirm that the CPU is dead. I installed the replacement motherboard, and now the fans spin up for about 1 second before shutting down every time I press the power button. I have tested the RAM, video card(s) and PSU in another system, so that only leaves the CPU as the culprit. I will see if my local store is willing to exchange it for me tomorrow. Otherwise, I will have to buy a new one and RMA the old one directly to AMD.

That some bad luck there. That case looks pretty well layed out, Could you place the cooler in one of the fan locations of the roof?

Unfortunately, the coolant lines are not long enough to reach that far, especially since they would need to route around the video cards. I will probably just put a small 40mm fan at the end of the VRM heatsink to ensure that there is some airflow in that area behind the radiator.

Allright. Replacement MB and CPU obtained, back in business. I've been monitoring the VRM section a lot more now that I have some knowledge about the operation of this board.


I put a can on the VRM heatsink and another on the NB (Placement not ideal, but this is just a test). I also used MX4 thermal compound instead of whatever came with the Kuhler 920. what a difference. Temps are down at least 10C on the CPU.

For now I'm at 4400MHz @ 1.36V and 48C. I know I can go further than that. My concern is that the inductors (chokes) on the CPU VRM are getting hot. Real Hot. Like up to 110C kind of hot. That seems unusual, but it may very well be within the design specs for those parts. The fact that they are not under a heatsink would lead me to believe the folks at Gigabyte think the same. The engineer in my is just a bit worried when I see such temperatures).

I was just wondering if there was any anecdotal evidence of temperatures getting this hot on the inductors in this board or similar board with OC'd FX CPUs (they do pull lots of current at load!).

Check out the picture to see the exact component I'm referring to.

I would remove your OC and run at stock clocks and voltage's, see if it affects your choke temp any. If it dose I would send gigabyte an e-mail asking about what temps they tested to. I did this with the Northbridge temps and got a reply back within a day. The e-mail I recived said they tested the NB to 80-85c with out any problems so it might be perfectly fine for your choke's...Can I ask what your ambient temp is?

Without the OC, I have seen choke temps up to ~75C. These FX processors are real current hogs when OC's. My wall socket power goes up almost 100W under load between stock clock and 4.4 GHz at 1.37V. Ambient in my basement in this Canadian winter is about 19C.

I will email Gigabyte. I will also try to get a part number on the choke and find the specs for it. I could always find and add a heatsink, or just get a motherboard with a beefier VRM cooling section that also covers the chokes.

Yea, there is some debate about the cooling not being up to par but mine has ran for months just fine, even with a heavy overclock on my 955BE with ambiant temps getting up to 85f range. Those BD chips must be major power hogs but your temps see very very high for you rambiant. one of these might work.

Dose anyone have an idea whether or not my board is bad or what? I have the 990fxa-ud5 and now it is constantly updating the backup bios in a loop. I can get it to boot to windows after 10 min of playing with it if I am lucky, but this is ridicules. I have flashed the bios from F7h back to F6, which is the one on the backup bios. Then to F5 and no luck I still get the updating bios loop.

In better detail:
1) turn on computer see info screen with ram and bios version
2) screen changes to what HDD and SSD drives I have then
3) Updating backup bios......
4) beep
5) Resets its self and I see info screen with ram and bios version again.
6) Repeat over and over and over

Any sugestions or should I get a refund and a new mobo all together?mad.giffrown.gif

I used to get the updating bios-thingy whenever I messed with my RAM too much. I'll try to replicate it tomorrow.

This may be a stupid question but have you tried any of the following:

Reloading the BIOS from a floppy or small USB drive.

Booting from the install disk for your OS.

Booting from a USB drive into another OS like Ubuntu, etc.

Disconnecting all or some of your devices and seeing how far you can get.

Sounds like you have a hardware issue or a corrupted BIOS. Hopefully the hardware issue is not your board but something not properly connected needing reseating.
