One heck of a difference. Much lower temps, much lower volts, no warping whatsoever....same OC @ 4.6 ghz on all 8 cores. Now, no worries at all.
I was a Gigabyte fan for years. It is just a shame they won't admit that the 8 core AMD's are to much when OCed on the UD3 boards.
I feel for you guys here....I was one of ya for several months...until I wised up and bought a Sabertooth. You guys take care, hang in there or join the "Sabertooth" forums here. Best of Luck to All.
is that the max that you can get with that high peripherals? what is your max cpu temp on 10 minutes FFT prime & 10 run of IBT? just curious with the temp we can get with that nice board & cooler ^^
this is my OC setting right now since 2 day's ago. pass IBT 10x /normal. prime FFT 10 minutes. OCCT large data set 5 minutes. max core is 62c, socket is 51c.
i think it's pretty stable since i had no error or whatsoever using all the program & games with this.
what i'm curious is... in my setting above, that's an oc with more than 1Ghz since the default clock is 3.500. and i can manage to make the temp with the limit, meaning in reality i will never get more that 56c. (i've tested it with converting file to DVD with Nero Video 12 + convert another video with Freemake + streaming youtube + download + winamp + playing 1080p mkv file with MPC all with almost 98% load all the time but the temp never go above 56c). now with your lower oc setting (4Ghz default to 4.6Ghz = 600mhz OC) isn't suppose your temp is much lower than me? I assume so, so with that conclusion why not go for 4.9 daily or even 5?
