haha that's funny because i am the same way man and i live in the Netherlands, well my dad was American so that will explain some things biggrin.gif

And why did you go by that crappy rev 3.0 anyway? LOL i did some research and found out that the rev 1.1 was the best to go by, but hey some times you have to learn the hard way right thumb.gif

o now you seems to be the VRM expert here, what is an save temp for the VRM on the UD5?

Its funny actually. The first board I received was the 1.1. I had read up on them and was happy I got the good one. But according to it TMPIN1 and TMPIN2 were 70+C all the time and had massive capacitor "squeal" anytime the CPU was underload. I RMA'd it and got this lovely Rev 3 board... I had read it was a pain in the ass but didn't know about the VRM throttling. That I discovered on my own lol.

Honestly I don't even know what the VRM temps are on this steaming turd so I definitely can't make any suggestions on the UD5's safe VRM temps. I'll have to look into getting an IR thermometer I guess and see exactly what the temps are.

So "fails", means usually something catastrophic, like mofset bursts and conseguences can be a fried processor too, as more current can pass towards the CPU. That's why you see at the extreme right column "fire, burst, fried". biggrin.gif

At the bottom there is another section called miscellaneous non-failures. Methinks that is where most of us UD3 victims would be. Mine hasn't completely failed yet, but it is getting worse all the time and I don't want to lose the CPU when, not if, it goes.

Those MSI boards do not have a fail safe that throttles them when they overheat.

Does anybody know if WINDOWS 7 SP1 still has TLB bug Patch Hotfix which gets installed by mistake even if your using a new AMD CPU. I checked mine with Crystal CPUID im pretty sure it does not have the patch installed but can anybody else confirm that it does not get installed when using an AM3+ Motherboard..?

The problem seems to be that Windows7 and Windows Vista, install a patch designed for AGENA and Barcelona (quadcores PHENOM of the first series that had the defect TLB) on computers that DO NOT NEED (all Phenom II and Athlon series based on the new cores without the TLB bug), causing a dramatic drop in performance.

Does anyone have issues with booting into windows? Especially after a restart? It happens at all OCs. My system will hang on the windows 7 logo. Ill restart and it will work sometimes but it often takes multiple restarts before it gets the whole way in.


Another question. I have a 970a-ud3 in my htpc that I can use. The only reason I got a new board with this system was for future xfire support. I do hit the 65* thermal wall that causes throttling during stability testing. Will the 970a not throttle at those temps+?

Temperature Water 45C temp cpu 64C Temerature WRM max Laser thermometer is 100C.
Is normal 100C backside motherboard ferrites max 90C?

I think i 've read once that mofsets can usually sustain up to 120C. Don't know how true this is, but you 're high... My undervolted 1090T at 100% load, has VRMs at about 55C (measured by IR thermometer). I have Asrock though.

Still, i wouldn't feel comfortable hitting 100C.

It's hard to believe that TLB bug is still causing problems after all these years. If nothing else one would think AMD would sue Macroshaft about it.

Mine starts just fine every time. 4.5ghz here.

I know nothing about the 970 but the throttling is a safety device to keep you from burning up the board and CPU. Actually, at that temperature the board warping and pulling the VRMs away from their cooler is the biggest problem. Mine went from throttling at 65C to 62C to 59C. I then put a rubber shim behind it and installed a much better cooler and got it back up to 63C.

I don't know how hot my VRMs run but under normal use the case behind them is cool to the touch but under heavy load it is too hot to touch.

EDIT: Hey I got a reply from Gigabyte! They asked for a picture of the board so I sent them some I took while installing that Thermalright cooler.
