True, btw: i edited my OP, the link to ebay was for Thermal Tape for cheap.

Also you can cut up an old pentium 2 heatsink or similar with a dremel for VRM heatsinks.

I'm planning a small cluster build and the GA-970A-UD3 is at the top of my motherboard list. The slave nodes will be headless and diskless. It looks like the GA-970A-UD3 supports a LAN boot but I can't find any specifics. The owner's manual just shows the bios option for 'Onboard LAN Boot ROM', Enabled/Disabled, but no details.

Does anyone know more about this, or where I can find more information?

Some of the links are broken on the main page. They have http://http:// instead of just one http.

It's the links under these two sections:

I chased all of those links and scoured the Gigabyte website and all I could find was the mention of the bios option in the manual.

Has anyone used this option with this board series?

Huge thanks to Rumilsurion and xd_1771 for the help with the board.

I followed your advise and removed the heatsinks and replied some thermal paste (MX-4) along with some more fans and a non stock cooler, and I'm not sure what did it, but the temps went down massively.

I overclocked it a bit to 3600 mhz, but I'm still undervolting the CPU From what the Mobo wants it to run at, so I feel good. 63 degrees is a LITTLE hot, but I figure well within specs (And it doesn't stay there for long, seemed to hover around 60-61 for most of the tests.

That's awesome. Those temps are a lot better than before.

EDIT: So after looking at different aftermarket VRM and Chipset heat sinks I've found these.

Would love some input if anyone knows if they would fit the GA-990xa-UD3

Jesus I just flashed to F6. They keep cranking these out like crazy.

I'll Flash to it and try it out.

Edit: Flashed to F7. Everything seems stable with my overclocked profile.
