Hey guys, I'm new here, just joined because of this 990XA-UD3 club.
So I have AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, which is locked, and I'm using it with Hyper 212+ , even though I haven't touched it yet (I have no GPU, no reason to OC)...
My mobo is 990XA-UD3, and from what I've noticed, the northbridge runs VERY hot, even on stock frequencies and on idle..
So I've updated the BIOS to F10, still runs quite hot... My question is, would adding a RAM coolers on top of the NB heatsink lower the temps? and where are TMPIN0/1/2 located? What temp do they indicate?

It's all in the first post;

"Q:In CPUID HWMonitor, which of the "TMPIN" temperatures apply to what?
A:TMPIN0 = Motherboard (chipset) temp; TMPIN1 = CPU temp; TMPIN2 = VRM temp"

"Other important technical information

Those looking to remount the MOSFET and Chipset heatsinks due to potentially loose mounting as confirmed by several board owners may have a look at Rumilsuron's post at [CLICK HERE] for a guide with detailed instructions. "

I have discoverd that TMPIN2 is directly related to CPU, so it isnt VRAM. My test was indisputable evidence of my claim. When i stoped the CPU fan, TMPIN2 stard to rose in a second to very high levels.

VRM, not VRAM, though I still don't see how stopping your CPU fan would make that much of a difference unless it's blowing directly on the VRMs

Becouse it isnt VRM temperature . Its temperature related to the CPU obviously.

itomic just keep it under 70c and you'll be safe as thats an appropriate max for the cpu. i mean the TJmax is a scorching 90c on the 6100. I have the 990xa along with a 6100 and its really not that hard to keep tmpin2 in check and im using a CLC which makes no downward draft towards the cpu socket
edit:thats permiting your core temps arn't reaching that high also. I'm assuming there not

I have run benches ( Cinebench 11.5, Fritz, Passmark and WPrime 1024M ) clocked @ 4.8Ghz, Vcore 1.508V BIOS - CPU-Z 1.472 to 1.488 on load. Have Xigmatek Gaia ( witch is excellent performer for the money ) and i didnt pass 60C on core once during testing and 70C for that CPU temperature.

QFT, as well as indirect airflow from your CPU cooler, as your CPU temperature rises, the load current on the CPU increases, so the VRMs will get hotter.

In regards to the LLC on rev 1.1, so is having a rev 1.0 board better or worse for Phenom 2 ? Bulldozer ? Sorry, I have been away from this thread for the last few months.. busy at work.

Hello everyone, I just joined the forums. There seems to be a lot of accumulated knowledge here! smile.gif I just got back into system building after many years hiatus. I'm having some medium-grade stability issues with my system and was hoping someone here familiar with this board/CPU combination could shed some light on it.
PROBLEM: My setup keeps failing memtest (various amounts of errors, almost all block move, error pattern 0h04000000). Also will fail on Prime95 within a few minutes if running more than 4 workers. I get the occasional random BSOD every few days, though so far not while playing any games.
SETUP: I am trying to run everything STOCK settings, BIOS settings AUTO unless otherwise specified. I need to get this thing stable at factory settings before I can OC! wink.gif
Mobo: Gigabyte 970A-D3 (already replaced this once) F8e BIOS
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x 4GB kit: CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 (oddly auto-detects and runs at 1333MHz)
CPU: AMD FX 8150 (Bulldozer) at stock settings, with factory fan (already replaced this once)
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower grand 1200W (very good PSU)
I've tried playing with memory voltage, which seems to have little effect. Does anyone think there are still BIOS issues with Bulldozer on this mobo that havent been resolved? Or maybe my RAM sticks are bad? Any help is appreciated. I'm pretty sure it's NOT a heat issue; the CPU fan spins up nicely under load, and the case is well ventilated with extra fans.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help. Maybe this will shed some light on use of Bulldozer in this motherboard.

FINALLY FIXED MY ISSUE!

So I sent the unit back to iBuyPower, fearing that they would not be able to figure out the problem (since I couldn't!) and I just got it back on Friday. Runs memtest and Prime flawlessly! No more crashes or BSOD's! The problem? Turns out it was the CPU all along. Just a note to other Bulldozer owners: the memory controller is inside the CPU, so problems with memtest can just as easily point to the CPU instead of the memory. And, the GA-970A-D3 motherboard really does seem to have enough juice to run the FX-8150 CPU full blast with no issues.

Thanks to everyone who provided input to try to help me out.
