post #8341 of 12377
Hey guys, looking for help!

Upgraded to a 8320 for xmas, and I was hoping to overclock it.

I'm using a 990FXA-UD3 rev 3 (Wish I had just about any other mobo at this point)

I've installed an Enzotech cooler to the VRMs using Arctic MX-4 after removing the thermal tape that came with it, as well as screwing it down instead of using the spring-clips.

I also have 2 40mm fans ziptied together blowing on the VRMs and the CPU is being cooled by a Swiftech H220.

The CPU is running happily at 4620MHz at the moment, but during prime95 blend tests, the processor downvolts and downclocks for just a moment at a time.

The voltage drops to 1.020V from 1.512 and the clocks drop from 4.6 to ~1.4.

All power saving states are turned off, and I am not sure what to do at this point, since I was sure that using a better heatsink and putting a fan on the VRM's would solve this issue.



Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! biggrin.gif

Quite a few people have had this issue. Is HPC on or off? Try switching it to the opposite of whatever it's currently set to. Also make sure to disable Core Performance Boost, C1E, and Cool&Quiet (though I leave this on). Also disable APM if you can find that in BIOS.

Believe if you use the AMD Overdrive software and disable AMD Turbo Core Technology this disables APM.

Changing HPC mode to OFF caused the throttling to happen IMMEDIATELY upon starting the prime95 test.

The change in clock was not as dramatic however, but it was consistent. About half the cores would run at 4.6 and the other half would run at 2.9 at any one time, and the VCORE would bounce from 1.5 to 1.368.

I have LLC on high, and a voltage offset of +0.1V.

Hmmm... I might take a look at the inside of my case. See what I can do, since I'm basically done upgrading. I really do want a good picture also. Damned digital camera is no where to be seen, and I need something with flash.

Make sure to get the latest bios from Gigabyte. Turn APM off, set LLC to high, and restart your OC.

Really would like a statement from Gigabyte about all this throttling on Rev. 3 boards. It has to be something with the BIOS/Software. AFAIK the VRM/mosfets are the same between both revisions unless someone knows otherwise.

Maybe they implemented some really strict VRM throttling/overheat protection in the 3.0 boards? But with an Enzotech MST-88 screwed on there and fans blowing on it you should have 0 problems with it overheating.

Yeah I don't doubt that it's the fault of the bios.

The bios is super hard to use and very clunky, and my PC has to start up like 3 times before it makes it to windows if I change like any settings related to the processor or ram.

Unfortunately with all the money I put into my PC this christmas there isn't really any way I can afford to switch out my mobo, so I'm stuck with this POS.

Probably never going to buy another Gigabyte motherboard again based on my experiences.

Did you try getting rid of APM? Try using AMD Overdrive and disabling that Turbo Core Control. http://download.amd.com/Desktop/aod_setup_4.2.6.exe

I just flashed the BIOS back to default settings, getting tired so I think I'll get back to overclocking this weekend or something.

As far as I can tell, APM was already disabled. I went into overdrive and made sure that turbo core was disabled, those are the same thing right? Turbo core was already disabled in bios.

Anyways, I'm optimistic about my new chip, since it was able to boot into windows at 4.8GHz earlier today, with only a 0.075V offset.

Just gotta work through Gigabyte's crap to get it there haha!

What button do you press to get into the BIOS for the UEFI boards? Wondering if there is hidden advanced settings like the old boards had. For the old boards its ctrl + F1/F2/Delete whichever key it is.
