Pals checked on ch4 also. It's at 666mhz. So, ch1,2 are 200mhz and ch3,4 are 666mhz.
But for dual channel I have 2 place ram in same color coding and that is ch1,3 or ch2,4.
Which mixes up the frequency causing windows to directly bsod.
Can I increase the MHz of individual ch?
Did some 1 check the same thing on their mobo? Regarding the MHz using memtest.. Kindly pals
Plz help...

So, i just received this board. CPU is running at stock, but TMPIN2 (VRM i think?) is @ 57c.

I also noticed that my CPU temps are at least +10c idle. Is this because the 990 platforms sensors actually work? Because my 870a would report the temps 10c lower than they actually were...

Any help would be useful,

Thanks

OK boys I just finished apply MX-4 to both the mosfet heat sink and the north bridge heat sink. I took lots of pictures but forgot my phone's cord at work, but I'll grab it tomorrow and will have the pictures uploaded. I ran prime95 for 15 minutes to see if my hours of work paid off you be the judge. The lowest I've seen for temps at 4.0ghz overclock on my board. Before applying MX-4 to the mosfet heat sink they sat around 64-65c but now the highest it hit was 58c and only for a split second. Temps stayed around 55-56c and idles around 40-42c. My room is about 20c so I would say by changing the thermal paste it has worked wonders. Tomorrow I'll upload the pictures so bookmark this for anyone that is having high temps and want to see how to do it.

Rumilsurion-> so you cleard off thermal tape from VRM heatsink and applied MX-4 paste?

Yes I will have pictures uploaded tomorrow and show you all how I did it.

I know about F6. Will update tonight, just haven't had time.
post #398 of 3278
So on Monday I took my time to remove the stock thermal pads from my motherboard and reapply MX-4 to both mosfet and north bridge heat sink. Here is how I did it.

Step:1 Remove motherboard from computer
IMG005.jpg
Step:2 Locate the white push pins on the back of the motherboard.
IMG009.jpg
Step:3 Use some pliers to pinch and push down on the push pins ( BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE MOTHERBOARD.)
IMG010.jpg
Step:4 Grasp heat sink and remove from motherboard (after push pins have been pushed through.)
IMG007.jpg
Step:5 Clean off both Mosfet and North bridge heat sink (I used Isopropyl alcohol 99%.)
IMG016.jpg
Step:6 Clean off both VRM and north bridge heat sink (Also used Isopropyl alcohol 99%.)
IMG014.jpg
Step:7 Both VRM and North bridge should look like this.

IMG015.jpg
Step:8 Apply thermal paste to both Mosfet and North bridge (use a piece of plastic or thin cardboard to spread the paste evenly on the mosfets and north bridge.)
IMG017.jpg
Step:9 Attach VRM and North bridge heat sinks and check for thermal spread (after repeat steps 4 through 8 and apply new thermal paste and reattach VRM and North bridge heat sink to motherboard)

Step:10 Reattach both VRM and North bridge heat sinks

Step:11 Reinstall motherboard back into case
IMG027.jpg
Step:12 Reattach CPU heat sink

Step:13 Reassemble your computer components.

Step:14 Run Prime95 or IntelBurnTest on High and check for temperature change between TMPIN0 and TMPIN2.

As you can see My temperatures have dropped. I hope this may help someone looking how to do this with there GA-990xa-UD3 motherboard.

Very nice, I think I am going to link to that post above in the OP smile.gif

In other news, my good ol' pal Linus (not really, but I've met him before and he lives in my city!) decided to do a GA-990XA-UD3 unboxing video:

Rumilsuron: Checking the thermal paste spread is a bad idea unless you have TIM to spare for a remount, because if you remount without reapplying the TIM, it may be uneven and there may be air bubbles.
