AMD is already the weaker link in the CPU market. I don't understand why they would do this...
Too bad, Intel here I come thumb.gifOnce I can afford it

My machine does that same exact thing at boot. It only happens when HPC mode is enabled. If this new BIOS doesn't fix the throttling I'm selling this turd on Ebay for whatever I can get out of it and going back to Asus lol. I would tell them that this did nothing to fix the problem.

Also, shoot for 60 FPS on a 60 Hz monitor, or 120 on a 120hz monitor at your desired resolution and settings. Its a myth that the human eye can only see 30/60 or what ever other number has been tossed out. People tend to confuse the monitor's ability to refresh the image with the human eye not being able to see it. exceeding the refresh rate of a monitor can cause ghosting, image tearing and inputlag. All depends on the monitor.

Look at the BenQ 120Hz monitor for an epic gaming monitor. Most samsung display's are pretty nice though. Avoid TV's as monitor's, especially big screen's.

i was aware of that the human eye can see more than 60hz an friend of mine is optician so he told me and i can see an clearly difference between a 60 or 120 hz monitor but i thought the samsung was good but i was wrong the samsung shows me unrealistic colors and is lagging like hell when i am gaming.

I am going to look for benQ monitor if i can find one 120hz here. also i been looking for this monitor: ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms 3D LCD/LED
They say it must be pretty good as well.

Do you see throttling at any other time other than stability testing though? I also find it annoying but my cpu doesn't throttle any other time. Hours of bf3 w/o throttling so I don't really mind

I haven't noticed any outside of stability testing but you can't tell if it's truly stable with it throttling

ok, i don't understand, my voltage keeps jumping around

i set the voltage to +100 and LLC to ultimate but it keeps jumping

why can't it be stable at the voltage i want it to be? this mobo is getting me more and more irritated about all of that automatic nonsense stuff

is there a way that i can disable all of that?

how is it jumping? Almost every single motherboard on the planet is going to Vboost and Vdroop. That is why Load Line Calibration was created. To assist in the stabilization of CPU-Voltage.

Turn off LLC, remove the Voltage modifier, manually set all voltages to stock. This will allow you to get an idea of how much your voltage is actually dropping or boosting.

With that info you will be able to properly set the voltage modifier and LLC to maintain closer to constant Voltage..

Heck even my i5 2500k on an ASUS p8z68z-PRO/GEN3 has unstable voltage until I calculate how much I need to modify each voltage. If I just started stabbing in the dark my voltage would be all over the place...

My UD3 actually has very little droop. and I'm actually of the opinion the problem is not the Gigabyte boards so much as the BD CPU's... I've set up a few UD3's 5's and 7's with various Phenom II's and all have been flawless. Twice I tried to build a BullDozer based system with a UD3 and it was a nightmare... changed back to the 1100T and it was like butta all the way up to 4.2Ghz on all 6 cores.

maybe its me LOL i got to get used to the newer systems iguess

Now it is not even jumping around its allmost stable at 1.440 volts @ 4.6 ghz

it was bevore jumping between 1.440 to 1.465 but the CPU is completely stable and the temps are great by 52 at max

i test with aida64 btw, i don't know if that's an good program to test but when it is stable at aida64 my system is stable so i guess its good one.


o BTW i am going to order the ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms 3D LCD/LED monitor so thumbs up and hope that is a good screen instead of that samsung crap with their ghosting stuff.

My personal advice is to not let your self become dependent on a single monitoring program or stress testing program. Most all of them are free and work differently than each other.

Regaurdless of the system, AMD, Intel, Nvidia, or AMDI/ATI overclocking is a PITA! I went from a long time AMD user to an i5, after looking in the BIOS on first boot up I felt like a retard. So many voltage's to set, soo much crap to fiddle with and tweak. It was very very overwhelming compared to my AMD's lol.

I have almost bought that monitor twice now. Great Review's from a gaming perspective, 144 Hz SON! Your 660TI is going to get its arse handed to it lol..
Warning: Funny tip for your new monitor! (Click to show)
Don't be a dork like a friend of mine and complain about 120Hz(144 in your case) sucks because you forgot to turn off Vsync lulz.. Yes, actually happens to someone I know frown.gif

yes i know that by now indeed.

but well my system is nice and stable and im happy with it for now.

i would like to SLI in the future just for the fun of it and of course performance but i don't know yet because here things are very expensive compare where u from.

i am still looking for that monitor and here it is very expensive and only one company can deliver that type of monitor for a whopping 330 euro's

so i am thinking about it cos its a very good monitor.
