Is anyone else having issues with HWmonitor? Only recently has it started to read my WD back up storage drive at 128c. I ran SpeedFan, and it is telling me it's only 25c. So just wondering if anyone else is having issues with HWmonitor, and the GA-990xa-UD3 with reading false temperatures.

Just picked up GA-990XA in anticipation of Bulldozer. I've not installed mine yet, but I see my old MA-790X-UD4P had a better northbridge cooler with heatpipe. At a glance, it "seems" the northbridge cooler off the 790X would fit the 990X. Anyone try it?

Just got my sig rig complete last night. I am running the GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ & so far its been a great board. Havent had much time playing with the BIOS but from what I could see it has alot of OC features. I dislike the color of the PCB which I should of gone black because it messed up my Black/White theme.

I am still waiting for my case fans + second 560 ti from newegg. Weather has them delayed.

Everything is stock at the moment dont have time right now to play with OCing

^ Great choice You should remount that 212+ and blow it towards the back though. See if you can get a front fan there (buy one perhaps) for some extra push onto the GPU (side fan works great too).

If you wanted black could've gotten a 990FXA-UD3, it doesn't cost a huge amount more.
I wouldn't consider it a downer since the likelihood is not many are going to see the opened case side ever (no window)

I would've tried it but that would've then meant trouble for putting that 790X on Craigslist since it would have to use some unofficial heatsinks. However with my TMPIN0 never passing around 36 degrees and TMPIN2 at a safe 50 degrees, I'm not worried about it. Of course, after knocking the VRM heatsink loose with my thumbs, I pushed down on both heatsinks for a couple of minutes with both thumbs again for a couple of minutes

I have many fans on the way right now for the cooler + case fans but due to the weather everything has been delayed by 2-3 days so I wont be getting anything till around. wed next week. Even my PC got delayed at one point where I had to wait an extra 4 days.

Update: I went ahead and switched the cooler orientation to the correct way. For some reason the first time installing it I didnt think it would fit this way just because of the way the bracket was. Anyways its been corrected

A couple of pages back I showed how I removed the stock north bridge heat sink and reapply new NT-H1 thermal compound and dropped temperatures by 3 degrees Celsius. The stock thermal tape they use sucks. If and when I re-do the thermal tape on the VRM's I'll be sure to post pictures.

The temperatures were pretty much stable at 47C.

I'm impressed by this hardware. Well worth the money, especially compared to the buggy hardware of five years ago (and five before that, and so on).

It idles at 27C.

VRM idles at about 42C, or at least that's what it was just before I ran the test again for this post.

It seems to be average 59C at load. Stock heatsinks on the motherboard.


Edit: Changed my NB freq to 2416.2 MHz and there was no change in temps. OCCT had the same results. Got an extra .1 in WEI.
