post #3771 of 12377
Guys, how's the performance regarding SATA 3.0? I might buy one of these and I have an OCZ Vertex 4 256gb.

I know generally AMD controllers are a little bit worse than Intel's, but don't know how this motherboard performs in particular.

Thanks wink.gif

Sata performance is close to intels.

I get about 500mbps read on my mushkin chronos drive, max speed is rated at 520mbps

IT'S NOT physically impossible to have lower temps then ambient.
eg . a spoon or potato peeler in a draw on a warm day can be cooler than ambient temp . so can shampoo, toothpaste, socks , pens .. the list goes on

people seem to think all cpus / coolers / bits of metal 'just are' at ambient temp but its false
another eg. my nuts are cooler than ambient and coolest place on my body, my bodies job is to keep them cool on a hot day even if the stuff around them are warm, just like what a cpu cooler does for a cpu

My coretemps in amd overdrive are exactly the ones that the tmpin2 gives to me.
i also first did think it was tmpin1, but that was with my old athlon 2, with the same reason i believe its now tmpin2. a bit weird.

and i also find it hard to believe that my cpu is 45 degrees under load on 4,5ghz with 1,46V under water. i think it is now 60 degrees, because that is what tmpin2 gives me.

i am not guessing, that is per gigabyte tech support.

Actually you're wrong. The items you mentioned may seem cooler than ambient at times, and that is only because they got cooler when the ambient temperature was cooler. It takes a while for them to reach the temperature of the current ambient. And since ambient temperature changes frequently these changes in temperature become more noticeable. As for your nuts, your bodies job is to keep them as close to 98.6F as possible. That is why they move closed to your body when the Ambient air temp is cool and farther from your body on a hot day when you are sweating and heating up. You nuts are never ambient air temperature, and the only time they would be below ambient temp is if it is hotter than 99F outside.

Also your CPU cooler comes in direct contact with the CPU, unless your CPU is off it will never be within a few degrees of ambient unless you have a phase change system like you would find a freezer or refrigerator, or have liquid nitrogen or dry ice on it. It's simple physics. Your motherboard runs an electrical current through your CPU. Being that the heatspreader is made of metal this will mean your CPU also generates heat. As long as the computer is on your CPU generates heat. Your motherboard does't have a temperature sensor inside of the CPU. Intel or AMD provide a formula within the chip to guestimate the current temperature. Nine times out of Ten this reading is more accurate under load because that is when it is important to know the temperature. Right now my FX-8320 says it is 11c, but I know that's impossible because it is 20c inside my house.

Hi everyone!!

New member here, Been the owner of a ga-990fxa-ud3 (rev1.0) for some time now. Heck this board has traveled 1600mi with me when I moved. I'm in need of some help so I'll list some of my specs first and hope for an answer... thumb.gif

CPU: AMD FX-4100
GPU: GTX 560Ti
PSU: Corsair 650
Memory:
(1) http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/khx1600c9d3k2_8gx.pdf
(2) http://www.patriotmemory.com/product/specs/PV38G160C9K.pdf

This is the bit I need help with. For a while I just had set number 1, and for a while I had it running at 1333mhz not knowing any better. Then I thought why the heck not bump it up to 1666mhz, so I looked at the spec sheet, set the memory timings to 9-9-9-27 @ 1.65v and bam I had it booted up and running at the new, faster speed.

Then I received the second kit from a friend (brand new might I add). I went into the bios and set everything to auto-detect and NOTHING. I cannot get my system to book with both these kits (no matter the hardware configuration I try). Is there some trick to this? Some setting I must apply first? I did verify that the system will boot with EITHER of these two kits ALONE so it cannot be bad memory. I just have a feeling it has something to do with the voltage...

Any input is greatly appreciated as I've been trying to get this to work for far too long.

Thanks very much,


-Fabio

The TMPIN1 is the CPU SOCKET.

No need for water cooling, just remove the shïtty TIM it comes with and put a proper one and also, if that still dosen't satisfy you, get a proper aftermarket HS for it, the one it comes with is a joke. Everyone gets those high temps in the NB with the default HS.
That NB chipset is like a GPU temp-wise, the max safe temp is 80C. (From Gigabyte's tech support)
Of course the lower the better, but is not possible unless you get a aftermarket HS and have a 120-140mm fan on your side panel blowing the crap out of it.

I don't think you will ever make that work... you are using two different speed rated sticks, maybe if they were the same specs...
Try them in single-channel or you will have to get a second of either to make it work.
