post #351 of 3278
I'm going to pick up some MX-4 from my local NCIX and do the mosfets and redo my north bridge this coming up weekend I'll post pictures step by step for anyone else that wants to do it. I will then run several stress test to see if there are any temperature drop, which there should be since after I use NT-H1 on my north bridge temps dropped 3 Celsius. Since the thermal tape they use in my opinion sucks. Going to use MX-4 since it beats NT-H1 in thermal test.

I still have some AS5, maybe I should try that.

Bump - Canada has got a 990XA-UD3 sale again, this week it is down to $125 with $10 rebate at NCIX! No limitations, this deal is valid for a whole week!

Not as low as last time but you win if you get combo deal/bundle deal with another CPU

I got my board + 955 BE for $210 total, no MIR. Best sale they had all year, that week.

I caved, just ordered the GA-990XA-UD3 Rev.01. Hopefully the 8+2 phase power design and 140w TDP will accommodative my CPU better than the crappy 870A-G54

Certainly will, much safer
Make sure the VRM heatsink is tight (i.e. push down on it for about 2-5 minutes) and you should get VRM load temps in the 50s, much safer than the purported 100Cs (as reported by other users I know) on that motherboard on an x4.

Looks like there is an F6 BIOS for the GA-990XA-UD3. Updating the thread. Haven't taken my BIOS from F4E yet though.

Updated my bios to F6.
Downloaded from gigabyte site but when I tried to update using q-flash. First it gave me bios corrupt error then it updated the bios the 2nd time I tried...

Will a Thermalright Archon heatsink block any ram slots on the 990XA-UD3?

This is the RAM I got:

The fan might overhang the first slot a little bit however It should still be usable, the 140mm fan should sit above most ram and anyway the white slots are the first dimms you use so it should not be a problem.
