2301 it is then. Thanks thumb.gifthumb.gif

For OC tips. set the CPU-NB to 2600 MHz. You should also not overclock only using the multiplier try using the bus speed setting the overclock mode to manual.
This is purely personal preference but i like to use manual voltages and leave the LLC to Auto but i suppose its not required.
I found the combo of multi and FSB to produce better results in my experience. So yeah.

I was literally thinking this experience to be a quantum leap from giga in terms of these LLC settings and features rolleyes.gif

2 fsb vs multi you DO NOT use lower volts
Yes, something like that thumb.gif

3 mus1mus has had a giga +83xx for a while
Yep.. But I'm not good with overclocking on that board.
My first time to OC honestly.



By the way,




This is really surprising and refreshing!!!

People keep telling ths is an ugly motherboard. Opened the box, and it ain't TBH.

Pictures could lie IMO. This is freaking awesome looking board!!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

in case you're not aware, remember to remove the clear plastic film on the southbridge heatsink

I missed that when I originally installed mine and if anything it will run warmer if not removed

The only real time that you need to use FSB to be honest is if you want to overclock RAM with a little more control.. TBH everything else In my system clocked just fine without it.. Only issue I found was that the higher RAM dividers where less stable.

Well my chip seems to love combination OC the way that it will not stabilize on pure multi on my UD3.
One example is that I can't get to stabilize 4.7 with 1.500 but can stabilize 4.75 at 1.488. rolleyes.gif

So will take some time to learn the trick on the saberkitty I should say.

It was indeed.

By far my observation is that LLC at High lowers my Vcore from 1.475 at the Bios to 1.452 at load. While Ultra tend to add some overshoot on the values. 1.475 normalize at 1.488 with a high of 1.500.

But surprisingly, the system runs cooler than my previous ud3 at higher voltages. thumb.gif

One quick question though, I have observed in HWInfo that
CPU Package Temp seems like the Core temp.
Vcore-1 is the VRM??
CPU seems to be the Socket.

Correct me if I am wrong guys. I haven't really installed a clean windows last night as well as Asus bundled software.

Gotta do a clean install later.

Thanks guys

Yes removed that as per your advice. thumb.gif

And by the way, how hot should I consider this Vcore-1 to be safe? running them at 62 Max at 1.500 last night.. is that too hot??

Yeah so DIGI options are your friend when it comes to stablizing OC's on the saberkitty.. I was amazed at how far I could go from even simply upgrading from a GD65.

I don't really think I could go higher though. As I am on air and 1.500 seems to be to much of a workout for my silver arrow already to keep my chip under 70.. 4.8 stable and I'm cool..

vcore1 is on the upper part of the vrm1 iirc and vrm2 closer to the bottom, but i could be wrong

i have heard of a ssd that had similar issues ( but not the same. ) that is really strange, the fact that it happens on linux too indicates its hardware, so yea that is the only thing i can think of besides a bios reflash. but my gut says it isnt bios sorry i cant be of more help redface.gif

I think i solved the issue, so maybe people in the future can see this IF they have the same problem like i did.

ie: Sabertooth 990fx r2.0 boots twice when i enter w7 desktop or ubuntu desktop after the second boot i can use my pc without issue...not sure about that one anyway:

What i have done....more then just only testing ram with memtest for 7 hours, CMOS reset, newest bios flash, prime95, running the ram at 1600mhz instead of 1333mhz, 2 ram modules instead of 4...

I swapped my graphics card with one that i know is working 100% i booted up so far so good till i got in ubuntu desktop (no doubt this would happen also with w7 desktop) and it rebooted, very dissapointing experience...so i had only one option left since prime95 and memtest went well. So i changed my psu from a TX850 version 1 to a HX650 watt psu i was little worried because of the 650 watt since the FX-9590 is rated at 220watt but i guessed it was only for booting up and not stress testing.

I detached all the psu cables to my MB (tripple check) and hooked up my HX650 psu outside the case tripple checked everything was connected. Fingers crossed and i started the pc up....went to ubuntu desktop i expected a reboot which to my surprise did not came i waited and waited guess im lucky i then did a hard reset and booted ONCE no reboot. I then turned of the pc and psu, removed the psu cable from the wall and hooked up everything back up again booted again and no double boot!!! So i gues i either had a faulty psu OR a psu that was not compatible with my MB and cpu.

All whats left is i need to buy a new 850 psu my choice would be a Corsair RM850 watt.
