Check the label on your RAM for timings and voltage specs.

Try reverting back to stock before overclocking again. I've found this motherboard won't boot a safe overclock after attempting an unstable overclock (well, sometimes, the little quirks this motherboard has seem to happen at random lol)

For example, a scenario I keep having with my setup:
Safe 3.4GHz OC = boots fine
Reboot into BIOS and set 3.7GHz = crash "overclocking failed" message
Reboot into BIOS and revert back to 3.4GHz = crash "overclocking failed" message even though it's a known, safe clock.

The only way I can get it to overclock (any overclock) again is to either clear CMOS or boot at stock settings before attempting overclocks (I hope this makes sense lol).

Otherwise I'm a bit stumped, I'm 99% sure the 4.05GHz configuration I posted will at least boot. I've had 3 CPUs in this board (Athlon II 450, Semp 140 and Athlon 5200+) and they've all booted and benched with a high 300+ HT Reference Freq. Also, they were all happy to run 2700MHz+ CPU NB clocks with 1.25v to 1.275v CPU NB Voltage

EDIT: Added CPU-Z screenshot to show 300 HT/2700NHz NB running fine with 1600MHz CL7

The RAM timings are on auto - that's what's killing the stability. The RAM is not meant to run at 7-7-7 timings. Set the timings manually to 9-9-9.

Xd bro
Should I also set the 24 part or just the 9-9-9 part?
Also should I tweak the ram voltage as well or it will do...
Thanx 4 helpin

Just like XD_1771 said. Change the ram timing to 9-9-9-24 at 1.5 volts.

After that check to make sure the system runs stable by running Intelburntest on High for at least 20 passes.

If everything is stable after that you can go back, and try changing your "1T/2T Command Timing" to 1T and than check for stability. I have the same ram kit as you. I run at stock timing but I put my command timings to 1T since it's faster than 2T.

If you find it's not stable at 1T go back to 2T.

Hope the overclock is stable now angel.tdw, let us know how it goes

Anyone know a good aftermarket heat sink for both the VRM and North bridge chip set?

I was looking at http://www.enzotechnology.com/air_cooling.htm but I don't know if any of those will fit since they don't list support for the GA-990x-UD3.

you could always get http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos-c1.htm ive seen them recommended for VRMs before. Get some THERMAL TAPE from ebay.ca from seller i used.. but there is many more.., reviews here
