Contined, picture with the new results:

Average CPU temp was 53 degrees Celsius

Hey guys, been reading this thread for a while, thought I should probably participate. Is it just that the rev3.0 boards are bad, or are people having trouble with all of them?

Because I can run my rev1.1 at 4800mhz 1.55V with no throttling and the VRM heatsink gets hot, but not so hot that I have to take my finger off it. Is it possible that Gigabyte
went cheap on the later rev's VRM?

Maybe it's this UEFI crap and 64-bit bios thing? Let's wait for some bios update?

I hardly doubt a bios update is going to fix a hardware issue

yep i agree with you OZ

think its a hardware problem , gigabytes just ships these boards with such a flimsy PCB






i just modified the board a bit in a desperate attempt to make the middle mosfet set clamp to the thermal pad
and because i'm too cheap to just waste a 15$ mosfet cooler biggrin.gif:D:D



here is showing that i use the pull fan from my heatsink a a fan for my mosfet heatsink


Jeremy Clarkson once said " Your not a true petrol head unless you own an Alfa( Alfa Romeo ) It will be most beautiful cars but 99% of the time your in shed fixing IT "

Gigabyte boards are like Alfa's in that context Especially this one ,It is thing of beauty ,the design concept is good and the layout is a thing of beauty , but 99 % of the time your are in A Shed Fixing something biggrin.gif



So Gigabyte , Dont just waste your board by using Flimsy PCB materials that can be bended by simple Heatsinks pushpin , mad.gif

To Hell with that New Glass Fibre(Cheap PCB) PCB and Bring Back the moisture magnet PCB ( atleast that is sturdy to enought accepts mods and BigAss Air Coolers )

That really does suck. Just for interest sake is that a HR-09 and what model is it?

Yes this is a Thermalright HR-09 type 2

990FXA REv 3 Why throttling? Temperature mosfet or northbrige?
Throttling Voltage why?

Its the VRM temperatures. They need better cooling. I would suggest looking to see if the board is warped in the VRM area as well.

Runelotus: That cooler looks like just the thing to cool those VRMs. I already have the Enzotech cooler and even with 3 120mm fans in that corner of the case of 56, 74, and 110cfm rating I can not take an FX8350 above 4.5 ghz because those VRMs are at their thermal limit. In normal use they sit right at 60C and start throttling at 65C.
I have also run into issues with the unstable V3 bios.

PS: How is that HR-09 bolted down?
