@ KKomputing

Thank You...I will explore the CPU-NB.
Much appreciate your time.

Hello all.

Is there a BIOS that works best with unlocking cores on the Phenom 2 series? I have a 555 that unlocks on multiple boards but wont on my UD3 Rev 1.1.

Cooling with Corsair H110 in a Antec LanBoy case...Four 120mm fans blowing directly
on the Mother board...with an Antec "spot fan" on the VRMs on high speed...also have
on the rear of the case a 120mm fan set as exhaust.

Under Prime95 stress test....My TEMP3 has gone to 67C...then two cores shut down to almost zero.
The other temps are at or under 40C. I have looked here on the forum and folks indicate that TEMP3
is the Northbridge? Should I be concerned with this? My voltage to the CPU is 1.445

I suppose I'm just looking for some reassurance or a solution to the higher than expected "Northbridge" temp.

Thank You

Im 99% sure that Tmpin2 isnt NB temperature. When i stress test, at say 4.0Ghz i get Tmpin2 to about 45C. But, when i touch NB heatsink with my finger, its very and i mean very hot. Its certanly more then 45C. Tmpin2 is CPU socket temp, and none of this temps r NB temperatures. It can be VRM , but for sure not NB temperatue.

Ohh crap they do..

no problem wink.gif

@above:
I am also still confused. many forum members and official tema members from gigabyte has said that the tmpin3 the NB is, and the tmpin2 the cpu is.
I find it hard to believe, although they come with valid posts and examples. It could be correct, but my sensors are all just giving me the finger if it comes to certain temperatures. Gigabytes official programs read out that tmpin3 is the cpu, and aida64 and all the official people say it is tmpin2... (cpu temp)

so i would like to see a overclocked 8120/8150/8320/8350 with a tmpin temperature above the 70 degrees before i can believe it... maybe one day i will reseat the NB heatsink and see the diffrence and PROOF it.

I would love to OC my 8350 ......but im on a Rev3.0 board :/

@iItomic & Fordox

Thanks for your replies. I'm hoping someone can post a definitive link on this problem.
I believe if I can find it, I can cool it..

My H110 has been installed for about 20 hours of use, so far.
I had a H100i before it with fan/usb problems. The idle and normal
use temps are great. It's only under severe testing that temp3 gets
out of control. Lot's of folks talk about hot VRMs...I have an Antec
Spot Fan on mine...they seem cool. I realize there is some disagreement
in the community here about what Temp3 is or could be. Is it possible,
to tell me, as a certainty, what Temp3 is not? Process of elimination?

Thank You All

Any one having a problem with the multiplyer down clocking with these boards with all power saving features turned off?
post #4479 of 12377
On rmbos rev 1.0. 1.1 and 1.2 u have to disable APM, on Rev 3.0 theres no solution yet. New BIOS will fix it, we hope.

Question for you guys. I have the GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 3.0 board, which I have been running stable with 2x8 GB Intel Extreme Masters 1600MHz DDR3 at 1680MHz. The question I have is have any of you managed to use 4x4GB 1688MHz memory on this motherboard with any success? I'm thinking of picking up a kit of 1866MHz, but want the option of either 2x8 GB or 4x4 GB for 16GB total.

I bought some 2133MHz in a 4x4 config, but could not get it to run stable with all 4 modules installed, even at 1600MHz. I then checked the Gigabyte website and found that this board can only run up to 2000MHz. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
