LLC is supposed to only be enabled for Bulldozer CPUs anyways.. I believe it is a bug in the 990fx gigabyte mobos that is enabling it for AM3 cpus.

In either case, apparently Gigabyte tech support knows nothing about this beta bios, i asked twice! Also seem to miss the fact that I repeatedly told them I used multiple keyboards! Silly... but I dont expect much from T.S. anyways so no knocks on Gigabyte as a brand...

Gigabyte stated that vdrop is here with AM3 CPUs due to VRM design, which is natively created for Bulldozer CPUs. So, in my opinion, vdrop shouldn't be at all with BD CPUs and this LLC is created for Phenom II CPUs.

I don't get vdrop with my Phenom II x6 CPU, I get vboost but I don't really care anymore my system is stable and my temps are low the only thing I did not like was I would have to hit the reset button 20 times to get into the bios. F4e fixed that so I am happy now biggrin.gif an LLC setting would just be a plus smile.gif

Gigabyte does make good boards but there tech support sucks, it can take them days for them to answer a question and then there answer most of the time is them asking you for info you ready gave them...

But I don't know of any company that has good tech support.

CPU-Z Validation

First thing I did after I booted was flashed to BIOS F4E. I'm running the 990XA now and everything is going fine smile.gif Ram works at the settings they did on my 790X.... no problems. Testing CPU overclock with increased ref clock later. I'll let you guys know if I validate 4Ghz and I hope to hit 4.2Ghz on this mobo within 1.5V (I came pretty close on the 790X)

Perhaps F4E is an early AM3+ compatible BIOS with the Microcode already on it?

going to flash the board now.


p.s i have a 4 gig kit of crucial ballistix tracer cl7 1.65v 7-7-7-24 1333mhz
or should i use the gkillz?

Whichever RAM kit should work just fine.
I managed to get setup with the same speed/voltage as I had on my 790X: 4Ghz with 3Ghz NB: LINK

At full load I get a rather noticeable and heavy vBoost - 1.42V to 1.46-1.47!!!

what does it mean if my 4th core keeps going up and down in speeds at idle?

only id a small over clock really small just to bring it at 3.2 ghz

Just your 4th core?
Must be a CnQ bug...

Or perhaps its why AMD binned that chip in the first place wink.gif
Did you do 10hrs of prime 95 (CPU intensive one)?

Congrats XD, now push that baby farther!
