Remove the amd overdrive after resetting the settings in there to default, reset your bios then flash to the latest upate, clean your registry to remove any trace of amd overdrive, then start from scratch, set your CPU multiplyer to stock but manual settings, change everything in the speed settings to manual and stock settings, leave all voltages except the memory to auto, set memory to 1.5v and, eocp for memory to your memory rated speed, and the memory clock speed to what your ram is rated for THEN change the mem timings to the spd rated not the auto, this should give you the green voltage optimised message and when you save to bios it will post your memory at the rated speed

Is ga-70a-ud3 capable of running memory over 2100Mhz? I have predator 2400mhz ram and I can't get it work over 2100mhz with any setting (manual xmp). It's strange cause bios has settings for 2400mhz but it can't be done.

what will your cpu support

I think that it' has nothing to do with my CPU. It's an fx8320 overclocked to 4.3Ghz. I think is a mobo compatibility issue. The same processor runs in systems with 2600Mhz ram.

You might need to increase voltage to the cpu's internal memory controller or what we call cpu-nb.

I had to do the same thing to get my Kingston Hyper X 1600 set right. I still couldn't get my ram set to 1.65V as it's rated for but at least got the speed and timings set right. The issue with GeneralMars is his GA970A is a Rev 1 board and has different bios than the newer Rev 3 boards.

Yes, if you reference the 2 links in my earlier post you will see that I have adjusted timings on CPU and DRAM, and the voltages, all of which will be taken after a save&exit. They then become the auto values. However, the frequency on both the CPU and the DRAM refuses to adjust. It just gives a big giant exclamation.gif and sits there stubbornly. I really appreciate all of the assistance I've received, but for the sake of my sanity, if you would like to help, please read these links, not because I do not want your help or suggestions, but I don't want you to think I'm being rude or dismissive when I say I've already done or tried that:

Again, thanks to everyone's suggestions and assistance.

I have Hyper X Blu like you, rated at 1600MHz CAS 9-9-9-27-36 2T 1.65V but they are stable at 1600MHz CAS 9-9-9-24-40 1T 1.5V too, confirmed with Memtest and loooong sessions of Prime95... wink.gif

Edit: mine in particular are KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX (2x4GB)

Hey guys Im stumped here, I have used this ud3 990fx revision 1, 2 on different builds and now I have gotten the revision 3. But the cpu socket seems messed up for the am3+ the only thing wrong is this raised surface in the middle of the socket. Tried to take a picture. Im unable to drop my 6300 in correctly with this "bump" is this something anyone has experienced? This is a brand new revision 3. Can anyone help?
