would love to hear from anybody who ether has or hasn't experienced the noise.
Thanks in advance

I have a UD7 and have never heard any uncommon noise from the PSU. Sounds like a fan running too fast to me... I burn videos, recode them, etc all the time with no issues. My PSU is a Corsair HX850 and it seems to have plenty of juice for my fans, hard drives (up to 10), 6950 radeon and an overclocked FX 8150. Of course I only run one video card:thumb:

Corsair HX850 here as well, no noise. My motherboard (-UD3) will squeal when the proc is fully stressed under certain work units. And my Video card will squeal with higher load as well. Not the PSU however.

I actually have noticed a small pitch coming from my processors fan. I even opened up my case to confirm this and that is all it was. Then again the 965BE's fan sounds like a jet engine if you don't have the proper ventilation. (found that out after I accidentally didn't plug in my side and top fan). Either way if it's a capacitor on its last leg you can re-solder a replacement one on. smile.gif It's not too hard.

I am going to be upgrading to the FX-6200 and I plan on getting a decently big heat sink and fan to keep it cool.

I upgraded my BIOS to the F6K and I immediately noticed Windows loading up MUCH faster.

OH?!

So over all you'd say that F6k is an improvement?

I've been tip toeing around trying it out, my last experience (think it was F6c? idk) was of the "not so good nature". Any quirks or kinks you can mention about F6K?

Currently on F5 with a small list of things I'd hope could improve... Not game changers however and more than "liveable".

It is for me. I use to see a blinking " _ " symbol on the top left of the screen for roughly 5-7 seconds then my monitor going into power save mode for 3-5 seconds. After that I would see the Windows 7 logo come up and I would wait roughly 10-12 seconds. Then Windows 7 would finally load up annnnnnnnnnd then I wait for my user icon to show up (another 3-5 seconds). Then finally I would be up. Now I would say it's around 20 seconds instead of 30 for me.

(Don't go by me I did not have a stop watch for this hahah It's basically what it felt like, I'll see about timing it out sometime here. What is that program you guys where using earlier in this thread?) Also note that I am coming from the last legit BIOS release.

Another big change I noticed in the BIOS is that there are Overclocking Profiles for RAM. I tried it on my Mushkin Redline 996999... but IT DID NOT LIKE IT!

All in all I like it over the past version, I haven't had issues so far. (We'll see once I get the FX-6200)

F6k takes a little longer to boot for me. I get to see the "welcome" screen for about a second now. Didn't do that with F6c. But the voltage needed is much lower with the newer BIOS, which is kind of cool. smile.gif

Weird how it was faster for me. What Processor, RAM, and HDD speed do you have?

right on, that's good to know... thanks.

I think the Boot Timer you are referring to is here.

Added: Above are good instruction on how to use the app, However THIS is a better download that doesn't require the locked adware addition Shtuff you don't want.

Although this app will monitor windows boot time, it has no way of calculating the amount of time spent in the BIOS during start-up.



Little Shot of what the app say's my boot time is:
302

FX-8120 at 4.5GHz, Corsair XMS3 @ 2156MHz and a Kingston HyperX ssd. Will have to try this http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/720-restart-time.html to see if there really is a difference. smile.gif
