I honestly have no idea what i'm doing and my SSD is going to be here tomorrow eek.gif

Yes I Have a 120gb SSD very easy to setup in your bios.

Before you install anything on the SSD, go into your bios and change the follow.

Enter: Integrated Peripherals. Scroll down and change.

OnChip SATA Type - AHCI

Than save your bios settings.

Plug the SSD into ports 0-3.
Plug your cd-rom into ports 4-5.

Disconnect any other HDD for now.

Start the windows 7 install.

Once you have gotten to this page click load Driver.
windows7cleaninstalla.th.jpg

Insert the motherboard driver disk and than browse to the location of the driver. AHCI driver for windows 64-bit \BootDvr\SBxxxW7\AHCI\Win7x64

When you have found the driver, select it and click next to load the driver and continue to OS installation.

After windows 7 has installed download the latest window 7 AHCI driver.

After all your drivers are installed. Turn off your computer and replug your other HDD back into your motherboard.

Then re-enter into your bios and in Advance BIOS Features go into Hard Disk Boot Priority and make sure that your SSD is to boot first. If it is exit your bios and you are finished.

If you have any questions just ask.

Is there anyone here who managed to unlock X2 to X4 on 990Xa-UD3??
I just changed 880GA-UD3H with this one.
On 880GA-UD3H i had Phenom X2 560 unlocked and stable as X4 B60 even OC at 4.2GHz.
Now, when I unlock all cores in BIOS, and without OC-ing Windows freeze after few sec of Prime95.
Help.

@MatijaInSpace,

I've done it with the Phenom IIx2 555. It becomes a B55 Quad. I even overclocked it to 3.6GHz stable. It worked fine.

MatijaInSpace,

I'm using F3. It works best for me! I'm not a big gamer. The only thing additional you see is the Core Control. and CPU Unlock. I prefer the ACC of my 790X-UD4H. All Core Control does is let you turn them either on or off. If you moved like I did from an AM2+ motherboard, the difference in the adjustments is obvious, but nothing major. A couple of changes in the voltage controls, that I googled to find out what they are. Just type the name of the adjustment in the search bar.

Tmpin2 is not the coretemp. The core temps are listed seprately on HWMontior and are nowhere near the same temp as Tmpin2.

rawsteel,

TMPIN0 = System
TMPIN1 = CPU
TMPIN2 = North Bridge

It's been pretty easy to identify which is which, since the temperatures are in the 40F range outside, and 70F inside. I used an Infrared reading thermal probe, which clearly shows that TMPIN2 is the North Bridge.

Right now the ambient temp is 21C (70F), with the North Bridge reading 28C, CPU at 28C and the system at 34C.
