occt is downloaded and on a stick. I'll run it up tomorrow. It's late here.... (I'm still on my old build for primary email an watnot.)

OK, Apples to Apples!
1st-tab test on OCCT: I hit 60 on CPU temp in just a shade under 3 minutes. No big surprise. (test terminated at that point)
SO of course, without a doubt the OEM CPU cooler is out. No big surprise. I have a decent one already ordered and it's due in this week.

After this test I wanted to see how load-wise, OCCT compared with (probably) the most CPU intensive app I run semi regularly, (shrink)
So I quickly ripped a 7.8G disk and then pumped it through shrink, (full quality options on)
Recap, Video conversion with simultaneous media player running a vid, topped out at 47C
The Shrink encoding topped it out at 53.5c (never stopped bopping back and forth). Which, while not bad, even without the OCCT results,
I would have assumed that 54c in shrink plus the inevitable change in AMBIENT temp, (still relatively cool) was going to = trouble.
It's 69 in here now, when it tops 85(F) (and it will) that 54C will most surely hit and exceed 60C, something I don't intend to permit, other than for testing purposes, not to exceed seconds at a time.

So to recap OCCT, I stay under 60 for roughly 160 seconds. 19c ambient.

I am going to guess that you were using the small data set in OCCT. I already have an aftermarket cooler and will be getting a better one some day, but with the small data set in OCCT this 8350 lasts 1 minute or so before it shuts down at 65C. Or, the last time I ran it it throttled at 59C. So you already have pretty good cooling and your UD3 should survive with a little help.
Using the medium or large data sets my temps peak at 55C +-.

I got an email from Gigabyte yesterday about my review on Newegg. They gave me a case number and an address. I went there and it is an old obsolete site. I have a bad feeling about this.

Gigabyte's VIP Support hasn't answered me in over a week now. Good look with them. Maybe you'll get the same answer I did. "Users on Newegg said its fine!"

Honestly not surprised, I am looking to just save some money and buy a new mobo. What Anyone got any suggestions for a board that is in the same price range as this one?(UD3)

To each his own, but I'm looking at these two as they are laid out so that all of my existing hardware fits.

There are some nice Asus boards too. And then there is the UD5.

I've had the asrock extreme 4, good board just couldn't get LLC to work. Every time I enabled it windows wouldn't boot, plus the heatsink on the vrm was way too cheap. Also tried the msi gd-45 and it was garbage. Asus sabertooth is a good option however I am on the gigabyte ud5 right now and I think it is better than the sabertooth. Seems to stabilize much better.

well it depends on what you want with it, for higher overclocks i would suggest to get the UD5 because in my opinion it is the most sexy board of them all and second it has great heat sinks on the VRM and more capacitors so it is more stable for overclocking.

Get the rev 1.1 tho it has LLC so it is pretty stable at higher overclocks.

Also the UD5 is not that much expensive than the UD3 and its money well spend thumb.gif
