I'm new on this forum, and actually I registered because I have some troubles with my 990FXA-UD3, and I thought maybe you have a solution.

So here's the problem :

I recently bought a 990XA-UD3. I put a 8350 on it, with corsair xms 3 2000Mhz. I started overclock my cpu, as I always do.
So I put all the options like C6 state, etc, on disable, enable the HPC mode, start with 4.4Ghz and reboot.

First problem : My computer is doing a double boot. E.g when I push the button to boot, or when I restart from windows/bios, the com^puter first shutdown, then restart and do ok. On another forum they told me that this is a protection from the motherboard when cpu is overclocked.

Ok nice mobo.

So I continued my overclocking, and I saw my vCore moving a lot during OCCT. Like 1.39v idle to 1.44v. So I said "ok I'm just going to lower the LLC". And that's what I did. But even with a regular value, still 1.44v in load. Than I thought that my mobo was not doing ok, and I sent it back, to take a 990fxa-ud3.

And now I'm having exactly the same troubles, double boot, and LLC which doesn't want to let my vCore alone. Right now I'm at "medium" LLC value, +0.025vcore for 4.52Ghz, and in OCCT the vCore is going from 1.42 to 1.45. Then always moving from 1.452 to 1.44v.

So, do you guys have a trick to make my vCore goes straight ?

My bios is up to date (FC), my mobo is a rev3.0, my power supply is a corsair AX750 which has 1 year, and was perfect on my phenom.

By the way, sorry for my english, I'm french smile.gif

Thank you smile.gif

Welcome to hell. To sum it up the UD3 board cannot handle an FX-8350 if you can take it back and buy a different board I fully recommend doing so, I know that may not sound appealing but trust me a lot of us have this board paired with an FX-8350 and have had a mound of issues with it, it's just a crappy board. The fact it has so many positive reviews astounds me.

There are no solutions for the double boot it's an extreme annoyance but you can't do much about it besides not overclocking.

Erf.

Thank you for this quick reply smile.gif
The problem is that I already turn my 990XA back to take this one, and I have to pay for the shipping every time I do that :/ + the ud5 is 150€, and for a little more I could have a sabertooth which is much more great I think.

Well I think for now I will keep this one, try to reach the 4.6ghz, which is actually enough for my use smile.gif

Thank you again !

But like I said before I think the rev 1.1-1.2's are built a little better and haven't seemed as prone to warping. SO If you're not experiencing any throttling then you're probably ok. But that's no garontee you won't develop issues over time, especially if ambient temps become much warmer.
The CPU I'm pretty sure is fine at those temps or even +10C from that. It's the MB itself that may or may not be at risk.
You've got a 6100 pushed to 4.5, TO ME that's a big push from a stock speed of 3.3. But it was interesting for me to see your voltages and mutiplier, I've GOT a 6100 myself, I'm still running with a stock CPU Cooler so for now I'm stopped at 3.99Ghz, once I install the after market cooler I'll see about nudging it a little higher. I won't let mine run up over 60C but I have a REV 3.
You'd be probably be better served talking to someone else here, someone with a 6100 and a REV 1.02 board. And who has had some experience running it up that far. But I don't know if we have anyone who fits that description.

Hey OZZ , what's your take on this question?

It's weird man. This board just cannot give consistent temp readings for anyone. I honestly don't know what to think anymore. I don't trust the temps that my board reports because of all this nonsense. According the Gigabyte TMPIN2 is the NB but as you can see even their own reporting software claims its CPU. Its a damn mess honestly.

Yeah the double boot is "normal" when you have the CPU multiplier changed from anything but AUTO. I am doing a bus overclock to avoid this because the power cycling cannot be good for mechanical hard drives...


As for your voltages, my board does that as well. It doesn't matter what LLC its set on. I observe the same voltage changes no matter what. I see you have the REV 3 board. All I can say man is you ain't seen nothing yet. I recommend you pull the VRM heatsink off and make sure it is contacting all the VRM chips. Then I recommend bolting it down instead of using those plastic pins. Then put a fan directly on top of the VRM heatsink. You will have VRM thottling otherwise.

I agree with Hellsrage. Get rid of it if you still can. You are about to go down a long horrible road of frustration.

Sorry to hear that, you should be able to reach 4.6 as long as you have good cooling, the problem will be throttling. I don't know what you're using your PC for but if it's just every day things and gaming you should be fine but any program that gets to 100% load will most likely cause the voltage to throttle which in turn will lower your CPU clock this can be countered buy putting a fan on top of the VRM heat sink, if you read some of the previous pages other members such as Ozzy have made post of them doing so with positive results.

The setup done by Ozzy: http://www.overclock.net/t/1023100/official-gigabyte-ga-990fxa-series-owners-thread-club/5190#post_19899599

It may also be worth a look into aftermarket coolers for the VRMs. I'm stuck with the board too for now gotta wait for a little opening to spend money and I'll be grabbing a new board.

Good luck with the overclocking! thumb.gif

what is this water block left-handed to the vrm water block with the vrm water block on top? The cubic thing between the pci-e slot and the vrm water block is the southbridge water block?

Well, Gigabyte support replied again.


Some how I get the feeling they will not upgrade my board since we all know another UD3 board isn't gonna solve anything.

Rauli,
if he thinks it's that high, I'm inclined to agree. I'm going to resind my "probably OK" and replace it with "back that CPU down to at least 4.3Ghz. VCORE to about 1.45v or less".
If you want to run that CPU at 4.5 you might want to look in to water cooling.

Your welcome dude! thumb.gif

Also according to temperatures,

Temp sensors are on the FX chip themselves and it is actually not the board but the chip that send the information.

Also when i am at idle and the ambient temp is low in my room the lowest i get was 7,5c, obviously that is not correct and has nothing to do with the board but with the chip itself.

In my experience anything below 20c is not correct, idle temps are never correct so the load temperature u should look at and not the idle temp because it can be never below 20c unless u are living in the arctic LOL

If I'm understanding you right that would be northbridge.
