Thanks in advance, WW

Solved it finally. Turned out to be a USB hub which doesn't play well with the GA-990FXA-UD7 extra power USB 3.0 header.thumb.gif

Wild Wally,

Did that problem appear after a bios update?

Nope, just came out of the blue. That's what made it so hard to find.

Hey,

me again. Running my 1090T on 3400Mhz now with ram at 1600 Cl9 and stock voltages and with the boxed cooler.
When my case is back together and watercooling is running again i'll see what's possible.

Bios F5 is mostly recommended for UD3 and Phenom II but all i see at Gigabyte is FA FB and FC.
TouchBios says my version is FA, maybe when booting it'll show the "real number".

E: Ok got it myself. for rev 1.0 and 1.1 its F5 which is FB for 1.2. FC equals F6.
Mine says FA, i'll try it and maybe update to FB.

If anyone has BIOS F6C for the UD5 please let me know. I think this was the one that worked the best for my setup.

Just updated to F7 for my UD3.
Improves a few things like v-drop and v-raise, Also my SSD is back to full speed in tests and I can run my ram at its rated speed/voltage.
But just like every update since F6C my overclocking is even lower, Now all I can manage is 4.5ghz on 1.42V and higher and I get a black screen restart.
F6K my max was 4.7ghz on 1.48V before blue screen.
And F6C 5.1ghz on 1.52V before blue screen.


Im guessing the black screen restart is due to the "VRM MOS protection". But I guess ill just stick to F7 since F6C/F6K my SSD only gets half the speed its ment to with AHCI enabled. Atleast the chip will like that under prime max temp is only 48C now instead of 60C at 5ghz.

Picked up a UD5 for $130 shipped on eBay the other day with 2+ years left on the warranty, but I'm pretty sure it's a rev 1.0 board (didn't know there was a 1.1 when I installed it and I'm not about to rip the rig apart now to check). Running a Phenom II X4 955 @ 17.5 x 229 (4007MHz).

Memory is running 8-9-8-21 at 1832MHz, which is better than I expected out of a Deneb IMC. Seems like a pretty solid board even with the "vdroop" going on. I guess I'll find out how well the VRM on this board holds up pretty quickly since the particular CPU I'm using pretty much sucks for overclocking and requires 1.6+v to hit 4.0, which means a CMOS setting of like 1.625 or 1.650v. Cooling it on air with an old Xigmatek HDT-S1284 with two 120x38mm Panaflo U1BX fans in push/pull... currently reading 51C after 15 min of Prime95 with AIDA64 reading the CPU voltage as between 1.584 and 1.600v under full load. I'm thinking of picking up a 1090 or 1100T sometime soonish since I want a CPU upgrade and I'm not entirely impressed by what I've seen of Bulldozer thus far.

I have f6d but I can not remember what they screwed up on that version.
