Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 AM3 +

Hello there,

I hope I'm not being a pain in the ass but I watched Madgoats boot-time video on YouTube and needed some advice...

My setup, detailed below, is stock (for now) except the ram which is @ 1600...

I wrote this to Gigabyte to no help from them...

Hello I have installed all the correct drivers from Gigabyte website, and I am experiencing SLOW BOOT TIME.

All hardware is working correctly on my GIGABYTE GA-880GM-USB3, which boots from beep in 15secs. I upgraded my motherboard so I can run SLI Graphics cards.

This new motherboard takes 45secs, and hangs for nearly 5secs before displaying LOADING OPERATING SYSTEM during boot.

I notice in the video, Madgoat had Bios version F5 - has anyone had this problem with the F8?

It's so frustrating to have my favorite setup boot so slow.

MY SETUP...

NVIDIA GTX560 Ti SLI - Acer HN274HB 120hz

CPU Brand : AMD Model : phenom x4 965 BE

Operation System : Win 7 64-bit

Memory Brand : Patriot

Memory Size : 12Gb

Power Supply : 800 W

Cheers! And thank you for reading this... :-)[/QUOTE



gigabyte earlier bios had issues with boot up. They fixed this issue in one of the newer bios. I don't know exactly what bios fixed this issue, but its been fixed.

For my UD3/955BE anything past F4 BIOS is crap, unstable and long boot times. The BIOS on these boards is a YMMV. I would try using different BIOS. is AHCI enabled?

OK I have a question about OCing the GA990fxa-ud3 board I already got my 1100t to 4.0 stable and I have 16 gigs ram of Kingston Hyper-X ddr3 4x4 gigs 1600 1.65v ram. ATM all the rest of the board is at auto except the cpu. What would be a good safe stable settings for this. I am new to this and unfamiliar with how to. I have read the guides but still way over my head. I now the NB can go as high as 3000 but is it really necessary?

I was wondering if someone else my have the same setup and has found a good setting for it? I would prefer it this way then me blindly trying to find the correct one through bad trial and error. And could point out better timmings for the ram I have too CPU-Z is showing 10-10-10-26 T2 and have no idea why when they are 9-9-9-27 T2

Edit:

Just noticed CPU-Z is showing NB running at 2170 by itself.

First you need to manually set everything in the BIOS to "stock" level's. Once that is done you can start overclocking.

For air cooling 4.0 is about it. You might be able to get past 4.0 but watch out, performance may actually lower. Another thing of caution is the IMC. Phenom II's have weak IMC's. Thuban's are better than denab's but the IMC is still weak. Not to mention your running all 4 DIMM's of RAM. Long story short, there are no magic settings. You have little choice but to keep trying settings.

If I where you after setting everything to stock I would bump your multi back up for 4.0Ghz clock speed, then bump the CPU-NB freq up to 2600-2800(Helps improve performance and stability alot).
Once you can pas a proper stress test then I would bump the ram up from stock settings. Don't be shocked if OC'ing your RAM is in vain. Little real world performance gains will be noticed, if any at all.

YMMV is correct, but not necessarily satisfactory...
Yes - definitely have AHCI enabled ;-)

I'm finding mixed responses here too... Recent BIOS fixes it, yet, anything past F4 is slow.

I'll go through each BIOS update and once I find the best outcome, I'll reply here, then start the OC process.

Cheers!

From my experiance the only problem these boards have is the BIOS. Once you find the magic version they are pretty slick.

Cheers Mate. I appreciate your hope and everyone's help.
I'll have a play with various versions and report back.

Using my 990FXA-UD3 I managed to get 12GB of RAM 2X2 and 2X4 sticks of RAM to run at DDR3 1600 speeds but I could not use 7-8-7-24 2T, instead I had to use 8-8-8-29 2T speeds (no amount of voltage would bring it to 7-8-7-24

With my full overclock, the memory is a little under 1600 speeds but it is completely stable at the full 1600 speeds.

CPU voltage is at 1.475V
memory voltage is set to 1.65V
NB voltage is set to 1.24V

cool n quiet, and the turbo boost crap are both disabled.

other than the full screen logo being disabled, virtualization being enabled, and SATA being set to AHCI,and my overclocks, everything else is stock

That's excellent... :-)

What Bios version are you on?
I'm trying to get mine to boot under 40secs...
Hardware used to boot in 15Secs using my old board.
Cheers.
post #3550 of 12382
I am currently using the F5 bios, the ones after F5, won't let me overclock, even the smallest overclock (while the stability doesn't change, every 1-2 restarts, it will consider the overclock as failed and revert to the defaults, requiring me to enter all overclock settings again.
