So far, that only happens to me on the F3 bios instead of the F2. I can almost always get in on F2 instead of F3. This board Vdroop aint that bad either. 0.02V diff iirc.

Poliwrath you may be able to compensate for lowered performance due to lowered memory speed, by lowering the timings (i.e. 1066 ~6-6-6 and preferably lower)
Thanks Xd biggrin.gif.. oops. kept on misspelling your nick as Xdd..
Guess it really depends on how strong the C2 imc is. my 620 can do 1333@ CL9 on 4x1gb sticks.

Was able to get to the Welcome screen before crashing at 3.8ghz. Getting much closer.

My board seems to be the opposite. I had trouble booting into the F2 BIOS, but I'm positive it was shipped with a corrupt ROM.

I'm going to save my OC profile when it's stable and boot to F2 to see if my suspicions were correct.

The Vdroop is normal and happens on all 990 boards, it's due to BD.

You seen my spelling? I'm at an internet cafe in my last place of residence and they have these cheap, horrible keyboards that need to be rammed before they recognise key strokes. Not only do they exacerbate my RSI but also frustrate me to no end.

I see, so long its not like my asfail m4a89gtd pro vup and vdroop problem i am happy smile.gif
hmm, looks ok to me. I am happy with just about any keyboard, so long it doesnt feels like i am typing on marshmallows. lol
Anyway. Might as well have a last cpuz update . http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1906000

According to Gigabyte the reason for the droop and load is due to LLC, it's not enabled for AM3 CPU's for some reason and only becomes active for BD. No idea why Gigabyte have done this, as Asus have implemented this on their boards. Fortunately the 990XA UD3 doesn't suffer badly, or at least there aren't many threads about it, but the FXA UD5 and 7 are horrible to OC apparently and there're lots of threads about them not working well.

I was quite convinced I was going to get this board but looking at the LLC option lacking in the BIOS and the VDroop being all over the place I might get the EVO instead, even though it's a lot more expensive. The one important thing to note is that the VDroop is generally terrible with Hexacores. Quads seem to be relatively VDroop free. The UD 5/7 thread is full of anger, I'd be furious too if I spent so much and got such bad performance.

Agreed. I was lucky only the 990fxa-d3 was available here only. guess the hexa really put far more stress on the vrm. But I do suspect poor bios coding to be the root of the problem.

It's obviously beyond Gigabyte why anyone would want to buy a new motherboard, designed for a CPU that's set to be released in a few months, to use with an older CPU.

I've got an M4A89TD PRO coming and this may hold off my plans on a 990XA-UD3, but it's still on the horizon for me

sorry for the delay and the speed and stability achieved by cpu clock ratio x19 smile.gif

I have had one crash and I am currently debugging this and testing so I could be wrong about achieved stability but I am not convinced the crash was a hardware error confused.gif
