[Official] Gigabyte GA-990FXA-Series Owners Thread/Club - Page 842

post #8411 of 12377
Ive read on another forum that the older revision of the GA-990FXA-UD3 can literally catch fire with the vishera CPU's, that guy scared me I was literally about to order one... uhh anyone heard anything about that ??

Also there is no windows 8 or 8.1 support apparently, and no chipset or drivers to download frown.gif, anyone had troubles with this board and windws 8-8.1 ??

Oh plenty of us have had problems with the UD3 Rev 3 and 8 core CPU's not necessarily Vishera. With the issues mine had I could see it being a potential fire hazard.

MMh, also the guy said the rev4 supposedly fixed the problem.. but if you say it's not necessarly related to vishera then I doubt.. meh! plus It's probably not available at all in my local store..I'll try to call them just to ask though.

So which rev are you using now ? or you just RMA'ed your rev 3 ?

yeah, win 8.x works great on UD3
post #8415 of 12377
i have used and own all the ud3 revs...

I can honestly say that Rev 3 is not great. Its not bad in the fact the it does stock well, but its not the Overclocker it should be and has a terrabad bios with buggy junk and APM issues.

However the rev 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 4.0 are all solid in my builds. The rev 4.0 being the best by far. I've used all boards with a vishera 8350 and Phenom II 1100t.

I am currently using the rev 4 with a 8350 @ 4.7ghz and its a great board and runs cool. I have the rev 3 working with the 1100t @ 4.1ghz and its running great. Rev 3 should have never been released let alone Vishera (or bulldozer for that matter) certified.

Sum it all up, If your getting a UD3... make sure it's a Rev 4.0. Otherwise look elsewhere.

sounds good thanks for the reply =) I'll try to get my hands on a rev 4 then ! mmh I don't live in the USA though it might be hard to find here.. I live in swiss.. I'll try to call my local shop see if they can order it, i bet they can't frown.gif.

The only one they have available is the basic one it doesn't say any revision..

hey what about the BIOS is it updated already on the rev4, do I need a CPU in the mobo in order to update in case I need to ? (I heard sometimes the cpu's aren't 100 supported without bios update).

And as for win 8 nice to hear, so it just work without drivers ? or I got to use the win7 ones, I guess I can figure that out !

EDIT : pretty useless shop, they say they don't have it in stock (the distributor) so they can't get it.. I'll have to find other ways.. uh they seem to have it in stock in the US lol.

Thanks again guys.

Yea, it was a good buy. Adding 2 more of my current monitors was going to cost at least 320. So, by buying this one for $40 less, that just cut that number down to 280, assuming I can't buy my 3rd at a good deal. $120 was as cheap as I've seen them. To be honest, anything $140 and under is a good price to buy one. I'll wait until I see for $140 or under again, to buy my 3rd.

For now, I'm just happy to have gotten a 2nd monitor for cheapish.


*Oh, one more thing. I was planning on getting that 16gb of 1866 ram I wanted. All of the ram was 10% off. I started to think, if rams so high priced and rare right now, why give discounts on it?
I'm now wondering if prices will be dropping again soon, and they are trying to sell what they can at the current insane prices.
I don't know, but, I do know, I'll wait longer on the ram. At worst, I missed out on saving like 10 bucks, at best, I'll save much more later on when I do get it.

Speaking of OC I got my first BSOD last night @ 4.3Ghz with multi @ 21 and FSB @205mhz frown.gif

I'am staying away from that board thats confirmed now aha, unless a REV 4 I'll try to contact online resellers see if they can get it... seems like they all out of stock or something.

PS: shouldn'nt Gigabyte remove these boards from the stores already ?? and replace with Rev4 ***... risk of burning your house and they still sell it. wow, perhaps I should just boycott Gigabyte for that..
