Wild Wally,
Waiting for the piledriver........

Actually, there is someone (madengineer, post 1022) on the GA-990XA/970A-Series Owners' Club forum asking:

Hey, does anybody know what "FF" means on the LED display on the UD7? I've done abit of searching and cant really find out. At first i suspected ram, but i tested it and it came up clear. Along with all HDDs.

Since I have the UD5, I haven't had cause to look up that info.

Thanks,
bcudasteve

FF = Fully Functional IIRC.

My UD7 still is going strong. Not on the latest BIOS though, on F6. Might flash to F8 to try for better stability for OCing. I can stay pretty stable until 3.8Ghz, but past that I really have to play with voltages. However, my particular board does have a certain amount of Vdroop in it. Which I knew when I bought it. Considering my UD7 I bought of Sin088. Yes, the very UD7 that he used to review it way back on release. wink.gif
Other than that, love it!

I have looked and looked through the 300+ pages to find the solution, but i feel like it dances around my question, so i apologize if this has already been answered:

I recently upgraded my PC to the GA-990FXA-UD3 mobo (Rev 1.1), with AMD AM3+ 8150 8-core processor. I purchased 2 Corsair 8GB @ 1600 mhz sticks and threw them in as well. Since i have done this, i have had random (and i mean RANDOM) lockups.

I play games a lot, but i have actually encountered more lockups outside of gaming than i have inside. Sometimes, the lockup will occur before my desktop even displays. No BSOD, no sound-loop...the computer will just seize to work. Fans still kicking and everything.

I have thrown the book at this for troubleshooting, and its really starting to aggravate me. I ran MemTest86 against my Corsairs and the first round hit 4 errors, while the second threw 593 (lol) errors. Obviously, i swapped out the sticks and replaced it with a 10600 @ 1333mhz 4gb of PNY. Within 15 minutes, computer lockup AGAIN. MemTest86 reported no errors on this stick.

Last lockup reported my CPU temp at 68 (during a stress test), and other times my CPU temp can reach up to 85 without a lockup.

This really does appear to be random and i am not sure how to diagnose this. I reformatted my HD and reinstalled all the latest drivers (ONLY) and updated BIOS. Still no worky.

Other points to note: i am using the stock CPU cooler and stock thermal paste for all of my heatsinks. I cant say for certain that the PC is overheating, as i have seen lockups outside of stress test and even as low of a temp as 45c.

I am on my knees begging for help with this guys. Like i said, if this has been fixed before and i just missed it while browsing this thread, please point me to the page number and ill gladly review it. Thank you!

*edit* spelling and thermal paste notes.

Talking about your sig rig?

That's due to your 1090T CPU not your mobo.

The x6's are a bit trickier to overclock once you cross the 3.8ghz mark. For example my 1100T can do 3.7ghz on stock voltages. It can do 3.8ghz @ 1.375vcore. However running PRIME STABLE 3.9ghz requires 1.450vcore; and running 4.0ghz+ requires 1.500vore+ under full Prime load.

Then of course there's the NB clock and voltages, and the RAM.

Does this stuff happen when you're running everything at stock clocks and voltage?

If so -- sounds like a possible problem with either the mobo or power supply.

My rig -- with a UD3 -- goes in to a sort of "boot loop" when I have a bad overclock. The PC will turn on, but my monitor stays black for a while instead of turning on normally. Then, when the BIOS posts, it gives me a message saying it reverted to the CMOS default (I do love dual-BIOS so much)

Yes, this is stock clocks and voltages. I am extremely inexperienced with voltages and OCing, that i simply choose to not mess with it. I have looked at it all manually, however and i made sure to set the BIOS to "Auto" for all options.

How can i check either my mobo or my PSU for hardware failures? i use Prime95 for most of my stress testing but ive never been able to run it for longer than 20 minutes at one time. Any other software or strategy i can use? Thank you for the reply.

So what's the deal with all the Nvidia audio drivers always on my system?

Even when I've uninstalled them in the past, and always done custom nvidia driver installs, always excluding the HD audio drivers.

I honestly can say i dont know what to do. So by saying that, im not sure how to adjust my timings. Any further guidance in that area? I am about to shut down and swap PSUs.

Swapped PSUs with a 500 watt from Cooler Master. I already notice a decrease in CPU temp during my stress test. Not significantly, but its hovering around 68 whereas previously it would be about 72-75 during this phase of the test. That being said, is it possible that a bad power supply is causing an increase in voltage or temperature to the CPU and other areas? I mean, if anyone could explain how a PSU can be incompatible with a motherboard, that would be excellent. I have used this 750w for about 2 years now without any issue, up until i swapped MOBOs.

Additionally, im very curious to see if my Corsairs are good to go. I really would hate to RMA them. Can i get some detailed instructions on how to ensure my timings are correct and the "proper" way to run memtest? Thanks again guys, i hope im getting that much closer to figuring this out.

2 years is a long time, and the 8150 requires a LOT of steady power.

From what I understand of the FX chips, don't own one myself, 72-75c is pushing the limits of their heat dispersion and you start running the risk of computing errors, crashes, and over a long period of time damage to the cpu.
