Yes, A Stiffer spring will do the same as using nylon washer's as shim's, You can "custom" springs by looking for custom RC car Springs on e/bay or hobby store's, very cheap but nylon washer are cheaper. Take the old springs with you for reference on size/stiffness.

As for the removal, yes you are correct, pinch the plastic pin's togeather and the HS will pop off... for some reason I cannot picture the back side of my UD3 mobo, its been happily in the case for over a year now..for some reason I want to say its screwed on?? but I might be being insane....

Just got my UD3 in the mail the other day and can't wait to finish putting my rig together this weekend. 5 years is far too long to go without building a new computer.

yes with a set of needle noise piers just pitch the back of the push pins and push them through. No sense in getting a stronger spring, you can just shim the spring for more pressure. Nylon washers work just fine. If you want more pressure you can replace the hole mounting system with nylon nut/bolt/washer combo. I have found the stock mounting method is just fine with just a small shim. I added a fan to my northbridge seemed to keep keep temps sub 60c. Also provides some air flow over the VRM's which is nice.

I have a old chrome orb sitting around (thermal take gpu/chipset cooler) I think i might see if it will fit.

Hey guys!

OMG the new UD5 motherboards now have LLC. My mate brought a new rig and he got the FX8150 and this mobo... we was overclocking it last night and I can report that there was no volt drop at all! I only noticed that it probably added 0.05volts over base volts set.

Also I can not believe the boot up speed...

I am so going to sell my old first gen UD5 and get his new one smile.gif

OK, I did the washers and reapplied the thermal paste. I still get 74C with prime95 after about 20 minutes or so. The NB temp idles at about 35. Ambient is about 27C. Does this sound about right?

Ok, there seems to be some confusion. The NB on the board won't raise in temp like that based off of Prime95 load. When most programs pool the NorthBrodge Temp they are actually polling the CPU-NB temp, which reside's in the actual CPU chip. The only way your going to get an actual NB chipset temp is with a digital thermometer or probe. Remeber AMD's have two Technical Noth Bridge's. CPU-NB and the motherboard NB chipset.

As for temps, lets just say you do actually get to 74c under full 100% load, your still fine. Your peak temp is with in Gigabyte's spec's. Dose this machine run at 100% often? unless you fold alot or are a constant encoder I think your fine, most user's only are only capabl of spiking to 100% in short bursts only lasting a few seconds. So keep that in mind when thinking about what temps are safe or not.

adding a fan helps ALOT.

my northbridge never goes over 60c now. The temps you see for the Cpuid hardware monitor for tmpin 2 are for the north bridge. I have confirmed the results using the infrared gun. Temps on the heatsink a very close to what is reported in the software.

I will get around to installing the chrome orb soon. I have to take the motherboard out to get to the pins on the back, so give me a few days till i feel like doing it. I will report back with temps vs the stock heatsink+fan vs the orb cooler. I don't need to do this, but will add some bling to the board haha, and it will probably reduce the temps further.

all the new fxa boards have LLC now. I honestly wouldn't buy another board just yet. Gigabyte is going to release a new set of boards here soon, probably when pile-driver is released, these will have the uefi bios Or so is rumored.

well i must say... i had the 8800 gma ud2h board and that one was a 4+1 power and it clocked pretty well but it could not handle the heat very well and crash ..... now that i have the ud5 with the latest bios it is pretty good... stable as hell and handles the heat very well.

i am supper happy with it and i only paid 75 pounds for it

Yea, I have seen more good than bad with these boards myself, Both from this thread and others across the interwebs. My UD3 has been running my 955BE @ 4.2Ghz/2800 CPU-NB, 1.45Vcore and 1.40 CPU-NBVolts. It crashed a few time's trying to get the OC stable but after that it has never froze up or BSOD on me. Temps are always fine even though my living room can get to a blistering 90f (32.2c). Even though I didn't get LLC on mine (first revision UD3) I would still buy it again, only payed $90 for mine with in a month of release smile.gif
