Thank you very much!
Oh yeah, this happened to me too, I completely forgot about that lol. After installing my new bios from usb it would not boot no matter what, so I just called it a day and would bother with it the next day and took out my usb drive and it booted lol.

Getting some very odd behaviour from my board. Im using the GA-970A-UD3 with the F6 BIOS, got some new RAM through the post today which works perfectly but weirdly if i put more than the stock 1.5V through it refuses to post at all and then wont let me into the BIOS to drop it back i have to clear the CMOS.
The RAM is Kingston HyperX 2133Mhz ive tried single sticks and swapping SIMM slots to use the other MC. Tried using using the memory clock on auto and manual same problem.
Anyone have any suggestions? Also i cant set the HTT manually anything over the auto frequency and it loops to the BIOS recovery mad.gif

Wow really good information here thanks man helped a lot!
post #1446 of 3278
Step83,

We could really use a bit more information, like the exact part # of your ram, how many sticks of ram, and the specified ram voltage. There is no 960 BE on the CPU Compatibility list for your motherboard, only the 960T, which has an unlocked multiplier, according to CPU World. If it turns out to be a Phenom IIx4 960T, no problem.

To support DDR3 1866 MHz (and above) memory, you have to install an AMD AM3+ CPU first, then you will need to flash the bios to F7, from any model AM3+ CPU, before you install your 960BE. Be careful, as it could possibly damage your motherboard, if it isn't compatible with it.

Best Regards,
Russ

OK

CPU AMD AM3 Phenom II 960T BE
MB GA-970A-UD3 Rev 1.0 BIOS F6
RAM 2X4GB Kingston HyperX Beast - KHX2133C11D3/4GX in DIMM slots 1&2 DC unganged running at 1.5V

Whats confusing is the BIOS actually has a RAM profile for this but it sets the FSB to about 260 to achieve this. I clocked the ram upto 1853.2 by raising the FSB to 248. I cant get the HTT to do what i want wither i have to leave it on auto or it falls over

This is a screenshot of a superpi i ran shows more info

Set manually your RAM at 1600MHz CAS 9-9-9 in BIOS, leave VDimm AUTO or fix it manually at 1.5V
post #1449 of 3278
hi all. some days a go i bought in amazon a ga-990x-ud3 for my 1090t cause the vrm of my ga-790x-ds4, literally have burned cause overclock + intel burn test , well i bought too 8 gb of ram ddr3 corsair xms3 at 1600 . well my problem is this, i cant enter in the bios , i press delete in boot but i cant get the bios menu, i try with 2 usb keyboard, i try with a usb/ps2 adapter, i try in front and rear ports, and some times work but most of times no.
In windows usb work well, no problem with mouse or keyboard but in boot most of times is imposible enter in the bios.
i have the last beta bios f13, and i try sometimes clear cmos but still the problem

Any idea ?

sorry for my english.
post #1450 of 3278
perche,

Try it with a wired ps2 keyboard. USP to PS2 adapters don't work that often. Your best chance of finding one is to buy a low cost one, that comes with the adapter. Half of the time, they don't work either. Also, remove all USB, Flash drives or other wireless devices. Flash drives can sometimes cause problems with the computer booting by hanging up. Nothing but a blank screen and a flashing cursor. on the left side top of the screen.

Good Luck
