[Official] Gigabyte GA-990FXA-Series Owners Thread/Club - Page 487

post #4861 of 12377
Ive seen too much discussion over this board about REVs and problems with OCs,temps etc........Is it worth?
Im not sure how will my new rig will be but im confused over this motherboard.
I like its appearance(the only in its price range -except asrock 990 extreme 3 which is cheaper with less features- that has really black color and not this awfull heatsinks color that asus boards have)
I also like its features and generally seems a good mobo for its price. Sabertooth is alot more expensive.
But im confused. Im not really sure if 1.2 rev works with 8350 out of the box,some people say yes,some others no... I dont know if rev 3 has some extra features that 1.2 doesnt have hardware speaking and not the new uefi bios.Some also say that rev 3 have some problems generally.
Also if i buy the 1.2 (i really cant find online rev 3 in europe.) will i have to update the bios (to add the uefi style) or it doesn't matter,it will give me the same oc potential,just without the mouse controlling bios? Do they have different audio chip btw?Are their differences at hardware + bios level ,enough to be concerned? Or nothing really to care about?
Also one last. Im REALLY worried about the update thing,i can't imagine myself updating it ,how is the easiest way without flash drives etc?
I hope i dont need to update it to make a 8350 work as it should be and OCing to 4.4 at least without problems ,and without any other problem about sound chip,temps etc

TPM chip. Where do I buy one for this board? There is a connector for one, yet can't find any. Gigabyte should have just integrated the TPM chip onboard, instead of having a socket to add one later.

Feel free to read about it yourself:

A good link to start your basic understand right HERE

Our boards default to .75 when moving the VIO ref from default. (this works for a 1.5v ddrv)

Any news on a BIOS update for GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev. 3.0? This throttling thing really screwed with me, I'm happy I searched this thread for a few hours, thought I was the cause. (newb OCer)

Also is there a good guide for OCing via FSB? I tried and crashed past a certain point and have no clue what needs to be changed to keep it stable.

Why didn't you post this up when Paladine asked about it? My DDR voltage is quite happy at 1.66v without me touching any VTT settings. I'll read up on it just because but I've never had a need to use it.

Gigabyte supplied another member here a beta BIOS that is supposed to address the throttling. Unfortunately it did solve the issue.

At what point is it crashing? I have mine up to 220mhz without doing anything at all.
