i don't understand why u all worried about

i mean it is certainly the board and not the cpu so trade or sell that damn board and get UD3 REV. 1.1 like me and your troubles are over. it is clearly the revision of this board because i don't have any trouble with my board anymore now i understand more of it, only i need to have a very high voltage to maintain the 4.6ghz overclock but the temps are good so no problems here.

I'm an owner (for now) of a UD3 Rev 3.0 as of yesterday. Updated to latest BIOS-FC and I'm seeing somethings I don't like. Any ideas on solutions if ya have them! (Coming from a Biostar 890FXE) May run it back to Microcenter and hold off until i can find a different board.

1. My old board unlocked my 960t to a 5-core (6th wasn't stable). Unfortunately I can't get this to work, as it was the "5th" core that was bad, the 6th was good. I don't see a way to disable particular cores.

2. My old board could OC my ram to 1704 with the same timings. I loosened the Miracle Memory to stock timings and couldn't get it stable a touch over 1600 (Voltage is steady at 1.515...same as old one).

3. With the lower frequency, Ram scores in Max Mem is 1.0 GB lower 10.4 ->9.5 (TBH the NB frequency is a bit lower as I can't use bclk to up it any).

4. The Auto/default NB-CPU voltage looked the it was set to 1.8. I set it to 1.33 like my old one (any monitor in windows to check?).


Only thing I can think of is the CPU-NB is ready/set wrong causing my headaches. Any ideas?

They have well over 30 pcs of the UD3 instock....so a Rev 1.1 may be possible if deemed the culprit. I could call and ask them as it's listed on the serial sticker.

Hi! I'm with 990FXA-UD5 mobo and bios F12a and AMD FX 8350 CPU. And in bios i have core performance boost and CPB ratio, but i dont have turbo option... when i disable CPB CPU works around 4028 mhz (20x201.34 by default) and when CPB is working (on auto) it goes to 4127mhz on 20.5x auto multiplier .. Why it does not work on 4200 mhz and is core performance boost = to turbo core? is it normal with GB 990FXA series mobos and FX 8350 turbo core to be missing or on FX series it is CPB not turbo core? or turbo core is option available on phenoms only? could it be problem with my PC?
I saw somewhere that 8350 runs at 4.1 on 8 cores (probably this is my core performance boost) and on 4.2 on 4 cores (probably its turbo core which is missing in my bios ) please help me frown.gif

Edit: this is shot from my bios:

and this is from my mb manual where is turbo option available:

core boost is turbo.. Just named differently in bios. All the new Giga bios have it listed this way now. the 8350 should run at 4ghz on all 8 cores. It will turbo to 4.2ghz stock if it has required TDP headroom. It will shut down cores not in use and increase the clock of the remaining active. Regadless the extra 200mhz gained due to turbo core is small. Unless you have the 8320 where its 500mhz, larger difference there.

We are worried about temps because some of us can't see what the temps are, I guess you didn't read that part? You tell me a way to make sure the NB is below 85C and I'll be tickled pink...

And if you go to Gigabytes site and pick the proper revision of your board it will list all the drivers for the specific revision. I would assume they are the same being they are all the same hardware just different BIOS.

giga boards have their own program built into the bios to flash it. there should be a key like END or crtl +12 something like that . that will boot into the flashing program. Just make sure to have the bios on a usb drive so you can use it to update.
when you download the bios from the site, it is the windows program + bios. in the download.
