As such I have already selected 4channel, in my drivers it shows quadro so selected that, while testing , all the 4 speakers works but when I play songs in wmp only front plays songs and not the rear 1ce

correct. so plug both cables into their ports on the back, then set both to behave as "front left / right" as in my previous post.

I dont get it. I also got the 990XA in the mail today. Same problem. No power at all. I tested all my parts in a friends rig, and got 2 friends to confirm I put everything in correctly. I'm going crazyyyy

Hmmm. "HT Link Frequency" should be fine at 2400MHz, but I'd drop it to x7 for 2100MHz just in case. Also check your RAM is running at correct voltage/timings (my 990XA seems pretty picky about that)

What happens on boot? Does it show any display at all or just show "overclocking failed" message?

Just beeps and then oc failed
As for my ram voltage, haven't set anything. Just stoping the x so that it runs at 1600. That's it. Wot should b the voltage for ram? And any timing specification?

Hey all. Recently I assembled a computer with the GA-970A-UD3 as the Mobo, and have been having some troubles with the heat. I've asked for advise, but most of it is only generalized stuff since people do not know the board.

I attached a screenshot of my computer temperatures after only a few minutes of Prime 95. They seemed to have stabilized there, but they still seem very high, too high for me to feel comfortable running it for a long period of time, and especially overclock.

This is with a stock heatsink/fan, and only two case fans (Front and back.) I've ordered some more and a Coolermaster, but I'm still worried. What is Temp2? I really don't want to have to get pliers out and mess with the Northbridge and VRM heatsinks, but I'm starting to think I might not have a choice.

Two things you can try.

1: If you have access to both VRM and North bridge chipset, try pushing down on the heat sinks to try and improve contact. Since they use a thermal pad it might not be making proper contact.

2: What I had to do. Remove both heat sinks and reapply MX-4 thermal compound. You can find my post here http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...l#post15006990 which shows step by step how to do it.

Temp2... VRMs, pretty hot on your end - not necessarily unsafely, but definitely worth concern.
post #439 of 3278
When I touched both heatsinks, the NB one seemed a LOT hotter then the other. If Temp2 is the VRM, that heatsink is not working well.

I assume any kind of thermal paste will do? I have some Arctic Silver 5 coming soon.

Was it easy to push the pins in to lift the heatsinks? I confess I haven't the slightest idea what all the lines running around the Mobo around those pins are, but I assume that scratching by accident with my pliers them would not be great. I do not have the most steady hands

My hands shake last **** too.

You want to squeeze the plastic pin and push at the same time, it doesn't take much force to push them out.

I wouldn't use AS5 since it has traces of silver. I know it says non conductive on the packaging, but I still wouldn't risk it. there's also that long curing time of 200 hours with AS5. Pick up some MX-4 it is far superior to AS5, it has no curing time and it is non conductive or corrosive.

Finally decided to push my CPU NB Frequency. I got it stable to 2800mhz at 1.225 volts. I could probably push it to 3000mhz, but I'm happy at 2800mhz. Temperatures did rise a little on the VRM, temperatures peaked at 60c and stayed around 55-56 during IntelBurnTest on Very High so I'm happy.
