(or save a few bucks, get the UD3 and run it stock, ....heck even at stock the FX8000's are plenty zippy.)

OR OR OR, if you haven't bought the CPU yet, I do recommend what I have, the FX-6100 (almost HALF the cost of an 8000 series!) and the UD3 are a very decent match. But, consistent with pretty much all OC-boards/scenarios you'll need to ditch the OEM CPU cooler if you plan to OC. Also DO NOT fail to upgrade the BIOS to "FC".

Run it stock!? Come on bro, this is OCN, stock clocks are for guys that can't afford LN2 cooling systems and live in the desert, lol.

I agree... if you want to play around with OC an FX-8xxx series go with the UD5 or an ASUS Sabertooth, and I would even recommend it for the FX-6xxx series if you want to push some healthy OCs... the UD5 is only $30 more than the UD3 (169.99 compared to 139.99 on newegg) and the Sabertooth is just $10 more (179.99)

The 6100s are currently about $120, same price as the 4300, the 4350 is $10 more, and the 6300 and 6350 both are $140.

In DevliDog's case I would spend the $20 extra over the 41 for the 43, and wait on the Steamroller desktop chips to launch late this year/early next. If Steamroller turns out to be anything close to what the hype is (for once), then it would be well worth waiting until then and getting the Steamroller (I think the 8520 and 8550?) for the upgrade to the 8-core CPU... And if Steamroller falls flat on it's face, the Piledrivers will be $20-$50 cheaper by then.

This probably my last post in this particular thread. When I removed my UD3 Rev. 1.1 mobo from the case, it was warped like a "mofo".
I knew it would be, based upon the "OZZinator's" posts.

Later and good luck everybody, hope y'all find a feasible solution. I can be found in the "Sabertooth" section here,
Thank You ALL.

ALL OT:
To be honest I'm not real familiar with the Vishera core procs.
I paid $106 for mine. No coupon no rebate. They must have gone up, I just checked amazon and the average right now is about $115.
the 4300 (4-core) vishera you mentioned is averaging $120, the 6300, $130 ($140 at the egg)
Is a 4 core 3.8ghz proc better than a 6 core 3.3ghz? Maybe unless the Caches count for nothing. the 6100 has 8mg of L3 and 6Mg of L2 vs the 4300 4mg of L3 and 2X2mb of L2
And I got my 6100 up to 3.99 without hardly breaking a sweat. Will the 4300 OC as nicely, maybe, but I can't say personally.
That 6300 is a better comparison for my money but it's also $20 more, and at that difference, probably worth it. But it's $34 more than I paid for mine. For what I paid, I'm not unhappy at all.
s15sLiDeR, who's question I was answering was looking to "save some money" which is why I pointed him at my 6100. Now that I've had a look at the 4300 and 6300, I'd say look for the best
price on any of those 3. They're all 95w procs so ALL should be good matches with "our" 990fx-UD3

It took maybe a half hour total.
One thing you will need to change is the fan. It will not clear the heat sinks on your ram. It must be removed, flipped over so it blows in the opposite direction, and then the cooler must be installed so that the fan is on the back side next to the VRMs. Positioned like that it is pulling air through the cooler instead of pushing it through and blowing directly at the case exhaust fan. That is how my A30 is set up and tests have shown that it only runs 1-2C warmer that way.

noneweggforme: I believe you are correct. I have been reading reviews of the cheaper boards from all manufacturers and am seeing the same things we are seeing here. The 8XXX cpu cooks them all.

Thanks man! that is good to know. Supposidly there's a you-tube video posted by COOLER MASTER on how to instal my 212, as for the ram heat sink conflict you mentioned, I assumed I wouldn't have 360 degree freedom on positioning the cooler. Your suggestion is a good idea, thanks ya! But, what about just rotating it 90 degrees (either way) in the interest of keeping the fan blowing through the fins (vs sucking) (Keep in mind I aint 'got back in there' yet in case this is a really stupid question.)

I only mentioned running at stock because the guy was asking about saving $! Maybe OC'ing and worrying too much about saving money are somewhat mutually exclusive. Or maybe it's just this board and current generation of AMD CPU's.
I OC'd my phenom 2 core on my BIOSTAR MB no sweat, (albeit modestly), stock everything, no after market nuttin!
that's actually the pc I'm still on at the moment!

Hey, quick question.. Can anybody give a clear answer to what is what- tmpin0 tmpn1 tmpin2 ? on the ud7...
reason for the question is that i bsod'ed for the first time ever on this board today, and my tmpin2 was at 43c wich it has never been before! So I'm scared. I was only watching youtube nothing heavy going on... I have had this board since it came out (rev 1), same oc same everything.. now suddenly bsod and temperature difference in tmpin2.
post #5597 of 12377
Try going back to page 548 or so to see what our best guess is as to TMPIN0,1,2. Does anyone really know?

The A30 can only be rotated 180 degrees. Dunno about the 212.

on the UD3 tmp2 is the CPU. I guess it could be different but I don't see why it would be.
AND IF it IS the CPU and you're BSOD'in at 43C that's not good. Unless the CPU is defective somehow, something else is wrong. More likely, Windows related. Virus maybe.

I don't know either, not read the instructions yet. I was assuming I had a 4 choices, at least one of which might require flipping the fan.

Don't know what version of Windows (assuming) you're running but even if it's 7, if it's more than 24 months old and been heavy internet-use pc the whole time, anything is possible.
Especially if you're running free-ware AV/security software.
this pc I'm on is 7pro a little over 3 years old and I KNOW it's past due ready for a clean re-install. (hence my building the new one)
