Hello everyone! I want to apologize right now for the wall of text I'm about to throw at you. I recently purchased a 990FXA-UD3 from Newegg to power my FX-8350. Sadly the first board, a Rev 1.1, was messed up and had bad cap whine and crazy high temps. My RMA'd unit is a Rev 3.0 and while the temps are great on it I'm experiencing throttling. I've read through this thread probably a dozen times. I'm not sure if I'm missing something or what.

So far this is what I have. At stock 4.0ghz with turbo off there is no throttling. At 4.44ghz @ 1.38v I get very light throttling, every so often my multi drops to 7x. At 4.40ghz @ 1.38v I'm not noticing any throttling. If I try to go to 4.5 or 4.6ghz even at 1.404v I'm experiencing heavy throttling.

I'm on the newest UEFI FC and I have all the low power states disabled. I have HPC mode enabled. I'm using a bus overclock as opposed to a multi overclock. My reported temps are great, though I'm not completely sure which is which. I see here in the FAQ TMPIN1 is CPU and TMPIN2 is NB. However TMPIN2 matchs Hardware monitor's report of CPU package temp dead on. Either way, TMPIN1 is max 48C at 4.44ghz and TMPIN2 is 51C.

I am using an Antec Kuhler 620 on my CPU on a push pull setup so I know the VRMs aren't getting the greatest airflow, so I placed a fan blowing on them. Everything I've found indicates this as VRM throttling but I don't know what to do to remedy it. I have a feeling this CPU is going to be a great clocker but if I try to push it at all I get crazy throttling. Any thoughts or ideas would be really appreciated!


Do you have HPC enable on your bios? Fixed my issues.

Yes I do. It has made no difference for me. At 4.40ghz @ 1.38v I have no throttling. If I bump the voltage up to 1.404 it throttles like crazy. I'm thinking I might just tough it out for a couple weeks then order an Asus CHV or something. I can't have my rig down for another week waiting on another probably bad replacement. I'm sick of this thing already.

Have you tried the pain in the butt way of setting the HPC? which is to boot into BIOS , disable HPC, make your changes and then save/boot to windows ....then reset and boot to BIOS and touch nothing else , but then enable HPC and save/boot to windows. This is the method I found in the FX-8350 thread that worked for me to get the HPC to "stick"
post #4574 of 12377
No I haven't tried that, but I will give it shot right now. It only takes a few minutes to find out if its going to throttle or not.

No, that didn't work either. I'm not sure just what the deal is with this thing but I've definitely have had enough of it lol.

post #4577 of 12377
Yes, that was the first thing I did when I got the board.

I see that most people are saying to enable HPC mode with the rev 3.0 boards but, this only stops throttling for a very short period of time, eventually the board will go back to throttling and it's honestly the most frustrating thing ever. This will probably the first and last gigabyte product I get.

Yeah that is about how I feel at this point. I'm still seriously considering picking up an Asus board in a few weeks and tossing this heap.

ack!

Avoid ANY AS.S board with the Q-LED Warning system. Its prone to flagging GPU's, CPU's and RAM that are in perfectly fine working condition. Then your going to have to pay $25 to ship the overpriced paperweight back to as.s.... If Gigabyte has peeved you might look into ASRock's offerings.
