I saw in Tom's Hardware that maybe CPU pins were dirty or I've had to re-sit the CPU. I tried that and I was able to see finally 16gb everywhere in my computer. I've restarted kinda 10 times today, did a little overclock and everything keeps stable.

Now, I'm concerned regarding what you say of the BIOS. I've currently F9 BIOS (for 1.1 rev) however, what does FC mean or where do I get to try it?

Thank you very much!

yyyeah... what he said.... Miklkit has answered the bios question. I had a sneaking suspicion the BIOS updates for the rev 1.0 990FXA might be different than those for my Rev 3.0 (otherwise same board). Counterintutive as that may be. My bad. I should have checked before posting. Full credit AND THANKS to Miklkit for having the correct info on that.

Sooo you didn't say, what SPEED do now see the RAM running at? If it's at 1600 did you "push it" to get that or did it just pop up once you fixed the CPU-socket issue
I forget did you say that ram stock speed was 1600 or 1333?

But My test have shown that TMPIN2 highly depends on cpu freq/voltage and touchbios, made by gigabyte also reports the same temp as TMPIN2 as CPU temperature. For example: running a stress test, hwmonitor reports TMPIN1 56 C, TMPIN2 70 C and package 59 C. I am worried because touchbios reports that 70C is my CPU temp and in that case im in danger of damaging it so can any1 please tell me what is solution, which should i trust?

OK, after just stepping on my, er, bad self, I'm going to state up front my personal experience is, primarially "rev 3.0" related. That said, 70C on the CPU ON ANY REVISION of this board is too hot. It's well within spec for the CPU, the issue is 1.) board warping and 2.) if the CPU is that hot how hot is the on-board NB? A lot of guys here with revision 3.0 boards have had major issues with CPU throttling and boards warping at CPU temps over 68C. Personally I won't let mine go over 60C. As I understand it the rev 1.1 and 1.2's are a little better in this area, and somewhat less prone to warping.
By way of a specific suggestion, I'd ease back the OC on everything except maybe the ram, with special attention to VCORE voltage. You want to drop that CPU temp by a full 10C.

I'm assuming from the way you put it that these temps you're seeing are in the BIOS(?), or if in Windows, either way these are "at idle" temps correct?
IF so then 70C on the CPU is seriously too high. By the way, what is you CPU? 8 core or 6? I'm thinking 8.
LASTLY if you're still running a stock OEM CPU cooler you need to upgrade that.

If you're actually NOT currently Overclocked at all (you didn't say) then I guess that would pretty much answer the question about "stock" CPU cooler! No OC and 70C on the CPU FOR SURE you havn't upgraded your CPU HS&Fan. (Either that or it's "110-in-the-shade" there!)

that is just so not right. Man, file THAT USELESS answer under "thanks-for-nothing"!! I mean, He's effectively just telling you to bugger-off and feel free to take your future business elsewhere. Apparently you had annoyed him.... seriously sad stuff.

GUESS I'm just old-school man but to this day I'm not comfortable purposely putting water INSIDE my computer.
The day I really need/want it faster than I can get it to go air-cooled I'll just buy a faster CPU and if required, mobo.

it isn't tapwater, it is de-ionized water which will not conduct electricity if it leaks out for a period of time (maybe an hour to a day before it starts picking up ions). so you need to check it from time to time. and if a loop is waterproof for about a week (i leak test it for 3 days with only the pump running), it will stay that for a long time.

the risc of watercooling isn't really there if you do it good. of course there will allways be a risc in it, but then you need to dry your components for a day or something. but when it runs, it runs.

RRRRReeeeally!?? wth.gif

Well I'll be dipped ! Learn something new everyday! Looks like it's "my bad" for the second time in one night....

Water that doesn't conduct electricity you say?? My goodness gracious!

Obviously that changes the picture significantly. Really I should have known, and, now that I think about it, waaaay back the recesses of my scotch-soaked brain that actually sounds kinda familure...

However, they're still kinda pricy and labor intensive to set up so between being cheap and lazy, I'm afrid it's still no sale.


BTW I appreciate your sparing me the (potential for) massive SARCASM in your response. Very civilized and classy of you.
