Use the form in the OP to add yourself thumb.gif

Yes there is a core unlocker feature but your CPU of course has to have hidden cores for anything to come out of it.

Hi to all the 990xa-ud3 owners, unfortunately this board is full of bugs with FX processors, I have a FX-8150 on this motherboard with the last bios F12 and I can't rise or lowering cpu voltage!!! every attempt is useless, so i flashed the "old" F7 bios and now the cpu voltage correctly change, very very bad Gigabyte!!!

Unfortunately this board does not support core unlocking. Yes, there is a such option in the Bios, but it doesn't work. How do I know? I've got 960T that unlocks to 5 core on MSI and Asus boards, but not on this one. And I tried all Bios updates from F2 to F12.

Greetings all!

Recently just upgraded to the 990XA-UD3 from the MSI 870-g45.

Liking it alot soo far except that I'm experiencing horrible performance dips compared to the MSI.

Before the MSI was running using the auto-oc switches which bumped my AMD 1090t from 3.2ghz to 3.8ghz. Ran perfectly for the longest time till it failed out of the blue recently.

Heard good things about this board so I picked it up from NCIX for about $150.

After I transferred all my components I noticed just about every part took a huge nose dive in performance.

SSD takes waaaaaaaaaay longer to log in, even after installing AHCI drivers and switching modes.

Slower performance in Windows with occassional bouts of random lag and especially when using 3D editing software.

Anytime attempts to overclock manually in the BIOS are met with the CPU instantly hiking in temperature to 50C and prompting temperature warnings (which the MSI never did).

To my knowledge everything is installed with the latest drivers and the new case contains about 5 fans so cooling shouldn't be a problem.

Any suggestions?

Cheers!

can someone explain to me why some boards say they support 3 way crossfire but not three way sli? and is it possible to install 3 cards on my gigabyte 990xa ud3 since i was told that a pcie slot running at x4 will not bottle neck a graphics card? what things dictate running multiple cards other than having the slots?
