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.

I'm kind of jealous lol. Its about time they answer someone and don't spew some garbage about Newegg reviews or SATA drivers... Let us know how things go.

Spend the extra few dollars for a Asus Sabertooth. Even the UD5 seems to have a good bit of praise. DO NOT TOUCH the UD3.

I would avoid the UD3 like the plague... almost everyone on the thread that has one has been plagued by problems... If you want a budget board around the same price I would recommend the ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131851

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.

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1819009

yes, I believe so. I noticed an update optional or under hardware for AMD CPU i also noticed it was dated 2009 or 2008 somthing, so I unchecked it as selected the checked the "don't show this one again" box. problem solved. anyway it was not auto-installed (as I permit "important" usually, to be. forinstance IE 10 is still in the declined catagory after having to UNINSTALL IT, when it proved to be still beta and acting like it.

OT: Im on at my moms house. I love her CABLE modem. You just jack in and GO! who knew?

you mean, almost everyone with an 8-core that has attempted to OC much beyond 20 or 25%

after (or aside-from) having to better/re-secure the NB HS I'm still relatively complaint free with my widdle 95w 6-core.biggrin.gif

hello, I am Brazilian and I am a long time searching Google for a place w / exchanging ideas and ask questions regarding my motherboard that is 990FXA-UD3 rev3.0, and the only place I found was here in this forum. I'm with a doubt, if you can answer me I would be very grateful, the problem is the following:

When I press the power button
the computer turns on, turns on the LEDs.
and it powers off and on again for 2 seconds.
and power off and on the third time and continues to boot normally.

My doubt is if this is normal?

Done broh thumb.gif

I'm not overclocking, but I have disabled all options like cool n quiet, C1E, C6
and put all the clock manually removing the automatic. it was an attempt to fix the clock in 3.3mhz because the multiplier is ranging from 7 to 16.50 ¬ ¬ '
but the processor clock continues oscillating (that's another issue).
I wonder if my boot is normal or not mad.gif
