Just because i'm impressed: those are your idle max/mins right? no load on the system before the screenshot right? Right?


ya, those are just idle temps, during load core temps only reach up to 36C and right now with just web browsing, core temps are around 18C, it doesnt feel like 18C(64F) in my room...haha I think its off

For example

4500MHz OC, run Cinebench, the cores temporarily drop to 3.3GHz at random intervals during the test. Same with 4875MHz, except it only throttles to 4.1GHz

Is this yet another BIOS bug or have a missed an option in the BIOS? Very frustrating!

Thanks for your help
Have you tried turning off turbo core?

Yep disabled everything that might adjust the clock speed, C1E, C6, CnQ, CPB (Core Performance Boost aka Turbo) and Hardware Thermal Monitor, very unusual.

Have you noticed any throttling with your 8120?

Hi there guys!!!

I'm very excited find a site like this.

I 'm reading several days the posts for the GA-990xa ud3. I have it for 5 days now and i'm very happy for this selection. I have phenom II 1100T and 8Gb ram Kingston hyper X.

My M/B came with F5 bios release. I have a problem that I don't know if anyone else is facing.

I have a raid 0 array with 2 HDD drives and I use a OCZ revodrive for booting windows. Actually revodrive is a raid 0 array also with 2 SSD drives.
Well the problem is that when the 2 arrays appears the system crashes and not booting. When a raid array is deleted the system booting fine.
I changed all the settings from bios: raid, ahci and ide and only with ide is working ok.
I updated bios to f9b version nothing changed, f8 nothing changed.
Recently i noticed that f9 version is released.

Any suggestions??

Thanks a lot for your time

Warning: Raid 0 offers NO protection against hardware failure.

as per your situation, please fill in your system specs in user control panel. I dont think its a good idea to raid0 a PCIe revodrive with a physical HDD, that is probably why you are facing the errors. Furthermore, your revodrive isn't fast enough!? Jelous!

Did anyone try to fit Thermalright Archon to GA-990XA-UD3 motherboard?
It seems that CPU heatsink may not fit due to chipset heatsink (1-2 mm interference).

I have the NH-D14 on there, I just measured and there's a 20mm gap between the chipset heatsink and the cooler I would say it will fit no problem.
