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!


check your thermal paste / cpu mount smile.gif

also is bios updated to latest version?

So I got my 970A-UD3 for the crazy low price of $80.97 + tax on Thursday and got her running Friday. Done absolutely 0 OC'in yet vcore is @ 1.35v everything on stock... Might be RMAing one of my ram sticks. It keeps giving me 4 errors on test #6 on memtest86+ no matter what I do. But that's not what I'm posting this for... dealing with that issue over at the Mushkin forums.

I'm here because my NB heatsink is SCORCHINGLY HOT! Talking about leave your finger on it for more than .7-.8 seconds and your getting burned... BAD. And this is on Power Saver 800mhz cpu around 1.0v on vcore. The VRM heatsink is warm at best and you can leave your finger on it for a minute or more, compared to the NB it pales in comparison. Is this normal for the 970A/990XA? Is it because of the Kuhler 620 meaning no/less airflow over the heatsinks? My radiator is mounted in front of the case. I do have 2 side 120mm fans 1 back 120mm and 2 top 140mm fans so I would think there is some kind of airlfow over the heatsinks.

Here's what HWMonitor has to say:
hwmonitor 970a-ud3.png 69k .png file

There's no crazy temps on there... but my finger tells me otherwise. I actually did burn it a little bit lol... it still hurts some.

Maybe that's a good thing.  The heatsink being hot means that it is successfully moving heat away from the chip (the temperature sensor measures at chip-level).

post #1085 of 3278
Yes. I read some stupid coments that one should reinstall heatspreader if its hot !!! Thats just stupid, becouse if it isnt properly instaled, and does not cool well, it shoudnt be hot then. My NB HS is very, very warm. I dont know the temperature of it, becuse i cant find sesnor and software that can read it.
post #1086 of 3278
The fact that if it is making good contact it should be hot does make perfect sense. But I'm more worried that it is SCORCHING hot when idle... Power Saver idle at that. I thought there isn't a temp sensor for NB? TMPIN0 is mobo/chipset? Well I don't think my TMPIN0 even changes temps really. Just ran 10min of Prime95 Blend. TMPIN0 sits 34-35c idle also.

465

Touched the NB heatsink while running. It felt same as idle. Still scorching hot but not any hotter. VRM heatsink was of course hotter than idle but it was only warm. Still way cooler than the NB.

Hi M3TAI,

From looking at the info on your rig you are running the memory at DDR3-1600 (800 Mhz) and your memory controller on the Phenom II 955 x4 is designed to run at DDR3-1333 (667 Mhz). Don't you think that could have something to do with your North Bridge running so hot?

Why don't you lower the speed of your ram to DDR3-1333 and then see if your NB continues to run so hot. I'm pretty sure these 2 things are related since the NB plays an integral part in memory dynamics.

Check it out !!!

post #1088 of 3278
It's actually been running 1333mhz 7-7-7-24 1T for the past 20 hours or so. I keep changing it all the time from 1333 and 1600 while i was running memtest over and over to see if it would affect my bad stick. Even at 1333mhz NB still HOT

Hello! I'm new to the club, got GA-970A-UD3 motherboard yesterday.

I tried unlocking my x3-445 rana, i got bios showing Phenom B45 but it would always BSOD at Windows startup.

Then i tried these:
Upped CPU voltage to 1.5
Disabled C1E and Cool&Quiet
Lowered htlink to 1.6ghz
Disabled 4th core in the bios.

But still BSOD at Windows startup. So anyone got some advice?

Anyway, then i tried to OC, i used Easytune6 and set FSB to 215. Didn't change anything else.
Tested some arma2 benchmarks, worked well but what worries me is that
HWmonitor showed TMPIN0 maxtemp at 118°C. Other temps were fine.
Is that TMPIN0 temp a problem?

I got 2 case fans, front and back of the case.
Coolermaster HyperTX2 for cpu.

Edit: Forgot to say that Cool&Quiet and C1E was on during overclock.

680

Edit2: I changed Cool&Quiet and C1E to disabled from bios, and the TMPIN0 temp is nice and low now when oc:ing, me happy now tongue.gif
I just hope the previous oc didn't damage anything because cpu voltage peaked at 1.89 and that high TMPIN0 temp :/
Here's a new hwmonitor pic after arma2 benchmark with Cool&Quiet and C1E set to disabled.
683
And Cpu-Z

I have a GA-970A-DS3 board that i am having real trouble with.

Board: GA-970A-DS3
Chip: AMD FX-8150
Clocks: All set to Auto
RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2A2000C9 4GB x2 DDR3 XMS3, PC3-16000 (2000), Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 9-10-9-27, 1.65V

If i set Memory to Auto it defaults to 1066mhz

Now if i use Profile1 in E.O.D.C it adjusts multiple things including bus speed to achieve 2000mhz. This build will boot to windows but the PC Goes to a black screen (no error) and wont turn off after 5 mins of prime95. I have to unplug pc for 30 sec before it will turn on again.

If i use the DDR2000 profile from E.O.D.C the system fails to POST and the auto restore thing resets the settings.

If i simply change just the memory clock to 9.33x (1866mhz) the pc will boot but fails just like Profile1 during Prime95

If i change the memory clock to 8x (1600mhz) it runs prime95 stable for around 20mins but then i got bored smile.gif

For all of the above i have used the specified Timings manually entered.

I also have a Corsair H100 water cooler and my CPU core temp never goes above 35c, my chipset is 25-28c, my VRM/CPU socket about 45c so heat is not an issue.

I have tried with Core boost/C1e/C6/Virt/APM all on and off.

Anyone have any idea what the hell is going on here?
