Most likely the tdp is limited to a safety value and by software. Of course the warping and the fact that ozzy has found a solution is rather strange but after all Gigabytes has the special knowledge building mainboard? Me too I think the vrm thingy isn't really a good solution because the mainboard is something special with is 2x pci-e 16 lanes and 990FX chipset?

It's hard to believe that it's too low of a tdp limit when the things are getting so hot it's causing the board to warp. I'm looking into getting an ir thermometer to see just how hot my enzotech is getting. Even with that fan of mine turning 6k rpm it's still to hot to touch. This in my opinion based on my findings is not something software will fix.

That's just pathetic and shady man... From how Gigabyte has handled all of this mess and basically dumped a steamy turd they like to claim as "customer service" in your laps.... I think I'm going to have to alter my build plans. I was looking at a pair of their OC 7970s for xfire since AMD is releasing the patch to fix the frametime/stutter issue later this month or early next... I'll gladly give another AMD licensed GPU designer my money instead, and gladly buy Sabertooth/ROG boards from ASUS after this build gets retired/passed on.

I'm actually beginning to wonder if the UD5's start to wear out overtime as well... My board temps have been higher than usual the last few days despite the unseasonably cooler temps we've had here in Ohio. I had my tower running overnight running a free disk space wipe with CCleaner and my tower smelled hot in the morning when I woke up. You know, that smell that molasses and maple syrup gets as you heat it up, the same smell that tells you something electronic is getting too hot... Yeah. I've not run my tower more than an hour at a time and lowered it back to stock clocks to help fight whatever the issue may be, but it certainly worries me. I didn't think to have HWinfo running while I did the wipe, but the next time I have it run, I'll leave that open and se what it tells me after he towers been on for the 8-10 hours it takes to wipe the 2+ TB of blank space I have... I just hope nothing fries itself up on me... I can't afford having to replace anything right now. frown.gif

^^^^ drool.gif That is a wicked nice build man... S***, I'll be happy once I get my dual GPU build later this year.... I would love to be able to afford a 4-way xfire of 7970s... Can you say gaming/boincing/folding a$$-kicker?

Thanks Spaceman biggrin.gif
I dread the thought of the electric bill from 4 7970's and three PSU's folding full time, yikes

It is fun though biggrin.gif

I have a UD3 Rev 3, and of course I have the same issues with heat and the VRM. So I have some options:

1) Use Spare Video card screws to just secure the heatsink better.

2) Add a fan to the VRM. I don't like this option because it fails both aesthetically and acoustically.

3) Put it under water. I don't love this, as the cost would end up, with fittings and the like, to be about $150. Also, the only WB I can find is the clear acrylic top, which does not go with my theme (black WC parts).

4) Replace the board with a UD5.


I think I will go with option 1 sometime soon. The real question is do I put the VRM under water or do I buy a UD5?

Even if you use screws to secure it you still need to check for warping, If the heatsink isn't touching the center VRM's like a lot of us have had the screws won't do any good. Also you are going to need a fan on the heatsink. Even my forged copper unit alone was not enough to remedy the throttling. Adding a fan did, however the heatsink remains ridiculously hot even when the fan is at its highest speed.
