I'm trying to push +3500Mhz on the CPU-NB. I can get to 3480Mhz on 1.45V stable but when I try to push the speed higher my system sometimes does not post, or it takes 30 seconds to do so. When it does post it's not stable in the slightest. I've tried various multipliers and reference clocks but they all do the same thing once I reach that speed/voltage.
RAM and CPU are set to stable speeds. RAM is always between 1600-1950MHz, CPU never goes over 3.8GHz with 1.4V. CPU load temperature, read from TMPIN2, barely hits 40C. I only have 4 cores enabled to keep the temps down.
3.5ghz on cpu/nb? I did not know phenom iis could get their cpu/nb that high, usually the limit I see is ~2.6ghz for c2 phenom IIs, and ~2.8ghz for c3 and 6 core thubans, maybe 3ghz.

Ya 3ghz for thuban cpu-nb is typical limit for regular cooling and maybe 3.2ghz with good water cooling maybe?. Pushing past that is just not going to happen unless you have some xtreme cooling and you are just trying to bench real quick. ~3ghz for 24/7 use.

Hello, I have the ga970a-ud3 (rev 1.2). I should have come here before because I went and bought an NB/MOSFET sink because my NB was burning hot (to touch - couldnt really figure out the temps on board at the time) and MOSFETs were fairly hot, and I was going to do watercooling which I thought might need a bit of extra cooling on the stuff around the CPU. Unfortunately I didn't check well enough and got stuff that didn't fit. I reseated the NB sink with new compound but didn't change out the MOSFET tape (I'll be doing this tomorrow probably).

Just for reference...
TMPIN2 is always 11-12C above CPU mirroring its spikes, under load and idle
TMPIN1 is 16 above CPU at idle, ~1C below it under prime95, ~8C above during graphics card stress test
TMPIN0 stays pretty low, about 34C and 38C under graphics stress
(I actually am using Open Hardware Monitor which refers to these temps as "Temperature #1" to 3, not by TMPIN, but I figured I'd use those names for convenience of lookup)

I think TMPIN0 is a bit higher now... but I need to run controlled tests again. May reset my fans to old position in case I made a big difference there. EDIT: no, temps are actually slightly lower but so is ambient temp.
Were the TMPIN values ever settled on here? I searched the thread and saw a lot of different info...

Additionally, should I just keep stock sinks with watercooling or should I try and find a new one that fits this board?

Hi, everyone, I bought a GA-970A-D3, FX6300, and other stuff on Black Friday from Newegg and was going to build it in a few weeks. After reading a bit, I'm worried. The board I received was rev1.4 which comes the F10 bios. The Gigabyte website says the 6300 is supported on since the F11 bios. Should I be worried? A Nov. 25 review on Newegg says "Using with an AMD FX 6300 CPU no problems, recognized new vishera drivers out of box." Maybe it was a rev3.0 MB?

I don't have an AM3 compatible CPU, so I'm kind of stressed right now. I'm thinking about testing the CPU and MB out of the case this Friday so I can have a headstart if it doesn't work. Thoughts?

It should work, just update the bios after. There's been people who were able to use fx cpus on old chipsets (like 700, 800 series) that had no support for them.

Tyty, should I still test it out of the case this week (not planning on building until week after)?
post #1387 of 3278
Sup, guys.
I've got a question:
going to buy GA-970A-UD3 rev 1.2(there is no 3.0 in stores) and want to install Zalman NBF47(http://www.zalman.com/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=133) to NB, so, can i fit it there or not?
Thx.

Looks like the clips are adjustable so it should fit.

I've had trouble finding one that is meant for this NB, so if you do get this and it fits please post back here thumb.gif
post #1390 of 3278
HTL2001, M3TAl, already checked it. And - NOPE.
NBF47 with stock clips doesnt work for this mobo because of 2 reasons:
1. clips to short(at least 1cm need to fit them in mounting holes)
2. diameter of the holes in the mobo bigger then diameter of the heatsink's nails.
