Gskill F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR natively runs at 1600 MHz (PC12800). Actually 1866 MHz with 9-10-9-28 at 1.5 volts is according to Intel XMP profle. To run these types of RAM you may have to manually adjust memory timings to 9-10-9-28 in BIOS and set the voltage to 1.60v. Also change the "Row Refresh Cycle Time 1 & 2" timing to 300ns.
If it fails, try to increase bus clock till you get close to 1866 MHz, example: 280 MHz (Bus speed) x 6.66 (memory multiplier) = 1864 MHz.
If it still fails, increase CPU-NB frequency to as max as you can with increased voltage.

Sorry, I forgot to update my system specs.

I'm on 990fxa ud5 rev 1.0 with fx-8350 oc'd to 5ghz. I got the gskill to 1864mhz @ 1.5v, so far stable, thats with bus speed at 233mhz.

I wanted to know if I can go futher than 1864mhz. I actually tried to up the memory multiplier close to 2133mhz a little below and set the voltage to 1.6. But it would not boot passed post page.

What else can I do to try get it there, does it need more voltage or something else?

Great got it to work at 1878. do you think these could oc to 2000????

Go for it. Thats the fun part of overclocking. The challenge to get as much as possible without crashing.
It's a lot of fun for me. But can be time consuming when your testing a OC.

New to the forums long time stalker. I have a question. I have an OC at 4.8 on a 8320. When I run Prime, after a few minutes the temps and clock speeds jump around in cpzu. They drop to 2k and volts to 1.2 Ideas?

Here is my setup:
CPU: 8320
Mobo: ud3 Rev.1.1
psu corsair 650
Case: Corsair 500r
Heat sink: Noctua NH-D14
Ram: Gskill 1866 running at 1700 9-10-9-28 v 1.6
All power saving stuff: off
Turbo: off
FSB: 220
NB :2400
v core : 1.48
NB volt 1.2
LLC: tried high, extreem and ultra
Might be missing something. Let me get in my bios.
Temps in prime: 50 cpu and 74 nb

Is it just me or are the latest Etron USB 3.0 drivers currently on the gigabyte site pretty hosed ? I'm talking about version 1.0.0.115 from 7/20/2012 if you look at the driver properties. I'm on Win 7 x64.

On my system, with these drivers, only USB 3.0 devices seem to work correctly with the ports connected to that controller, both front and back.
Many USB 2.0 devices are not seen at all. They power up, but don't show up or not recognized in Windows.. This is particularly true for anything that has a USB 2.0 hub.

The USB 2.0 devices all work fine when connected to the USB 2.0 controller.

This has been driving me crazy the last week as I was trying to install some combo USB 3.0 hub + card reader.
I got several different models from Central computers. They never worked correctly with the Etron USB 3.0 ports.

The latest one, which I have in my possession, an STLab E-100 works

On another Gigabyte mobo with a Renesas USB 3.0 chip. when connecting it, Windows first found a USB 3.0 hub, then USB 2.0 hub, then finally the card reader. I benchmarked with a very fast SDXC UHS-1 card and it got 37MB/s with HDtach. That was USB 2.0 speed, limited by the stupid built-in card reader...It is a built-in USB2 reader, not USB 3 .With another standalone USB 3.0 reader, HDtach gets 57MB/s with same SDXC card.

On the 990FXA-UD3, when I hookup the STLab E-110, Windows just finds the USB 3.0 hub. I can plug in my USB 3.0 key. But that's it, it does not see the USB 2 hub, nor the USB 2.0 card reader.

I'm really pissed at two things :
1) the broken Etron drivers . Anyone have the older version ? I think it worked fine with 2.0 devices ...
2) This stupid E-110 combo USB 3.0 hub & card reader device . Nothing on the box mentioned that the reader is 2.0 speed only.
The description on centralcomputers.com does say that, though. My bad for shopping retail and not online .. This one is going back too, sigh.

And now I believe my UD3 is a goner. frown.gif Been trying everything I can, but it just won't run anymore. Don't know what happened, but the VRMs are a lot hotter than before. After powering the PC on, the monitors will lose the signal after less than 5 mins, usb ports & ethernet won't work. But the computer will still run, but it can't be shut down with power button or reset. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary while examining the mobo. Tried different CPUs, RAM, PSU and GPU. Still the same.

Will be using an Asus M5A97 r2.0 for a couple of weeks. (This mobo was supposed to be RMA'd because the PC store couldn't get it to work. Works fine with me. smile.gif

It's a sad day though..sad-smiley-002.gif I'm still considering another Gigabyte mobo.

Alright guys I just got this board (UD3) yesterday and I'm having trouble overclocking my CPU. My chip is a 1045t and i have 550w PSU. I want to overclock my CPU to atleast 3.5ghz but when I set FSB at 255 my computer freezes every time I start running prime95. I tried voltages ranging from 1.35-1.475 volts but I'm getting the same results. I also underclocked my RAM so it's running at 1000mhz.

What's going on?

Cleaned up some posts. Please refrain from derailing the thread. This is supposed to be about Gigabyte motherboards, not arguments about impossible thermodynamic situations.

What's going on?
try lowering the multiplier of your cpu completely down to x8 or something. then try again in finding your max busspeed with 5 mhz steps, until you find your max. then raise the voltage slighlty, and make new steps, increase voltage, etc. then start raising your multiplier when your voltage is on your max, and lower the busspeed if you find instability.

not everyone does this so thoroughly, but it is needed to find your max (it is time consuming and a bit boring in the beginning). maybe your cpu or motherboard wont go higher. try also loosen the timings on your ram a bit.

in my expirience, the 990fxa chipsets dont go that high in busspeeds. the overclocks become more multiplier dependant.

which bios version are you using?
