[Official] Gigabyte GA-990XA/970A-Series Owners' Club & Help Thread - FX-8350 support added - Page 182

post #1811 of 3278
Thanks. I was reading this thread and I saw where that one guy was saying that the BIOS revisions made no difference and that the 970A-UD3 couldn't overclock an FX-8350, and that's all nonsense. In fact, mine is a rev. 1.2 refurb from Newegg, and it couldn't run my 8350 worth a hoot, either, when I first tried it. I contacted Gigabyte, and it turned out that I had a certain combination of BIOS revision and mobo revision that didn't work well with the 8350--they immediately told me what the problem was as soon as they read my system specs. They sent me a link to the new BIOS, which I installed and immediately was able to reach 4.3 GHz stable on my old Hyper 212+ cooler. Obviously, Gigabyte does make necessary changes to the BIOS if there are problems, and at least in my case, they cared that their customer was not having success with their product.

To get to 4.8, I had to boost the CPU voltage to 1.475 and I also gave a slight boost to the NB voltage; I don't think I changed anything else. I'd check the BIOS to make sure of that, but I'm on the main rig and I need to keep it running right now. Make sure LLC is turned on, or it probably won't work at any overclock. And bear in mind that I did this with a Heligon HE01 with the fan in performance mode; it's not exactly quiet at that speed, but you need all of the cooling you can get if you push an 8350 above stock.

I'm going to attempt to reach 5 GHz on this setup in the very near future...the 4.8 was originally accomplished in a 10-year-old case with mediocre airflow.

Drom runs a constant smear campaign on these UD3's because his experience has been horrible apparently. What he doesn't understand is his bad experience doesn't reflect the experience of the majority of users which has been great with these boards.

I'm very satisfied with this mobo and i'm not the only in the web, if he had bad luck it can happen with any manufacturer and model, i don't understand that position because there can always be defective units...

All rev.3.0 gigabyte motherboards will support the fx8350 out-of-the-box.

The word on the street is P95 doesn't work well with BD/PD. Also is that CPU-Z correct? Less than 1V for vcore at 4.5ghz? I don't have experience with PD but voltage for 4.5ghz should be at least over 1.35v or more for 4.5ghz.

Not a fan of OC'ing in the OS with overdrive or any other program. Bios all the way.

I think I may have a resolution by reverting back to an older BIOS. We'll see!

I'd like to add, now that I've reformatted and reverted to BIOS revision F13, that all is working fantastic!

I suppose I can't rule out software related issues for the problems I was having, but I really suspect BIOS F14b the culprit for my issues, as I was a happy camper until I updated to F14b.

Just wanted to pass this along!

Does the serial port require some extra action or something? I connected a standard serial connector + case bracket (bought in an electronics store) to the header on the mobo and copied the settings for the serial port in the OS over from my old system, but I can't seem to get anything on the serial terminal. That terminal worked fine with the old system, but there I could set the baud rate in the BIOS...

If it's not something hardware or BIOS related, then I'll probably get an answer from the OS mailing list, but it can't hurt to ask here as well.
