If we lower the core count we both can always achieve stability quickly. Btw, updating sig rig. Also, BIOS is flashed to F3, no fix
You would have to ask Gigabyte. If you say it was passing prime 95 on your older 790X then I don't know... I never got a CPU with locked cores because it's never guaranteed to work unlocked. A 990FX would probably not have helped because they are about the same it's just the 990FX has 16x 16x Crossfire/SLI support.
Could it be possible something they changed with AM3+ is making your unlocked cores less stable?
look at this the GA-890GPA-UD3H will have AM3+ support but there is a catch...
1. Beta BIOS
2. Add AM3+ CPU support
Note: Remove boot PXE ROM & unlock CPU core function, please use previous BIOS version for full functionality."
I saw that over on the AMD CPU forum..
