Hey! Can i ask something? smile.gif
Im sure you will have said this before but 482 pages are obviously a lot.
Does 1.2 Rev of Gigabyte 990fxa UD3 work with 8320/8350 out of the box? I mean without need to update the BIOS JUST to start and run the pc.Because if im gonna buy this from amazon (it has only 1.2 rev aswell,they also have GA 970 rev 1.0 jesus,2 years later,anyway) and im gonna buy also (not sure,im between many parts xD) the 8320 from amazon,to a totally new computer without having an old amd cpu,so just to be sure smile.gif

To Everyone one with the 990FXA-UD3 Rev 3.0 Motherboards,

I have been messing around with some beta bios I was supplied but unfortunately I have had no luck. I still have had no luck and have reported this to Gigabyte but so far, all I have gotten from gigabyte is the same old ,"Overclocking is not guaranteed" shpeal. It's ******* insulting. When I originally flashed my Bios to their beta version I was able to hit 4.5 GHz no problem. But after a restart everything went to crap.

I have no clue what the future holds for this motherboard and its god awful revision. I am really regretting this purchase and unfortunately I am stuck with this garbage because I thought gigabyte would fix it.

Question, my UD5 suddenly takes a long time booting the from BIOS, back then 10seconds or so and I am in the windows loading screen but now it takes 30seconds or more just to get it to the windows loading screen, and once in loading screen it takes another 30seconds or so before it actually starts loading. been having problems with the board, first board I got failed after a month and took out my CPU in the process, then they sent me 2 other boards as replacement that don't work, this was the 3rd, been using it for over 2months now and few days ago the BIOS seems to load a lot slower, I have a light overclock on my 8350 at 4.6Ghz at 1.45v vcore cpunb at 1.2625v, got K8 turned on for daily clocks but I have done prime95 24hr run with it turned off and temps never goes over 54C (under watercooling), is there something going on wrong with the board again? should I go for another RMA?


And another question, what's the difference between the UD5 Rev 1.1 and 3.0? any significant change on how it handles voltages for overclocking? coz I probably would just sell this board and get myself a Sabertooth or CVFZ.

Would you mind sending me that beta? I'd like to give it a shot but I'm 99% certain I'll have the same issue as you. I think its VRM related, I can turn APM mode off using the AMD Overdrive trick. Even with APM off I still get throttling. I'm in the same boat as you, I hate this waste of money and the very second I have the extra money to spend I'll by getting a CHV or Sabertooth.
