So from what I have read, if you are still experiencing throttling, the best way to minimize it is to up your FSB to as high as you can. Then once you get the stable, you can dial in everything else. So if you are aiming for say 5 ghz, try to get as high as you can on fsb (250 for example) and dial your multi in at 20. So when it throttles down to say 16 multi you will only drop to 4ghz. Kinda a pain in the rear, but it helps midigate some of the loss, especially at lower clocks. So in theory the lower clock rate you aim for, the smaller the % loss would be since it only throttles the multiplier and not the fsb or host clock. Whatever u wanna call it. :-) I have read the 8150 goes down to x16 and the 8120 drops to x14.

That's what I have read atleast. Anyone able to verify this? Obviously its not a fix, but it may help hold you over until there is a real fix for it.

Hi there!
I have the 990xa ud3 with f10g bios and can't find out exactly what the TMPIN0 - 2 are. As posted previously in this thread Easy Tune 6 reports the cpu temperature to be the same as TMPIN2. If I look in Aida64 it shows the cpu as the same as tmpin1. I'm sorry to barge in like this, but I think it's a question still not answered.
If tmpin2 isn't the cpu temp why does Easy Tune (provided by Gigabyte) show this as cpu temp. On the other hand the tmpin2 temp is the only one i can't cool - it's around 60 when gaming a lot.

I reinstalled the drivers for 990XA-UD3 and now the Dolby Home Theater utility is gone..

I have not got a clue where did it come the first time, but now i miss it - how can i restore it?
post #844 of 3278
So I appears, atleast on the 970ud3, that Tmpin2 is actually socket temp. As the CPU temp rise, so does Tmpin2. Reason I have come to this conclusion is they both seem to scale at the same rate. Also after reading different reviews and watching OC videos, everyone is basing the 55c on actual core temps in HWMonitor and likewise in OCCT. I have read that if you can get a fan to blow under the mobo, or on the back of the socket, then you can drop those temps as well.

I have a Modded case that I haven't finished yet, so I may attempt this by placing a fan on the right side of the case, blowing toward the socket. I can report back with my findings.

Back to the original topic, I finally got my stable 4.0ghz, I am going to try 4.4 this weekend and I will post both results. What is the recommended time for stress testing for me to post it here?

In the OP there is a Q&A that provides the answer:

Q:In CPUID HWMonitor, which of the "TMPIN" temperatures apply to what?
A:TMPIN0 = Motherboard (chipset) temp; TMPIN1 = CPU temp; TMPIN2 = VRM temp

In my rig, TMPIN1 and TMPIN2 are almost the exactly same when stress testing so that could be the reason for the confusion. It seems the VRM temps are almost identical to CPU socket temps on the these boards. Anyone else care to shed some light on their temps?

I have a 970a-ud3; Mine are different I think. My theory: 1,2,3:
VRM (always cool) CPU Socket (matches core temps closely), NorthBridge (this one is the hottest)

My NB gets hot to the touch and my 3rd sensor is my hottest, maxing @ 60-65C whereas my VRM heatsink is always relatively cool to touch, I can keep my finger there for like 10 seconds+
I'm around 21C ambient so it's kind of odd that my NB maxes 65C on load.

In any case, my fingers corroborate my ideas.

In HWMonitor my temps are:
TMPIN0 going from 28 to 37 (celsius)
TMPIN1 going from 30 to 52
TMPIN2 going from 24 to 60

Core temps are from 12 ?!? to 47

What I don't understand is that Easy Tune reads TMPIN2 as cpu temp. I mean Gigabyte made the board and the software - why would they be mistaking? On the other hand to me it seems more likely that the TMPIN1 is cpu temp, but I really have no idea.
It would be good to know though so I could keep an eye on the right temps.
post #848 of 3278
Ok so while in the BIOS I checked the pc health tab out. I set the alarm to go off at 60c for the CPU. When Tmpin2 hit 60 on HWMonitor and OCCT the alarm sounded.

Just saying :-) since there are others out there with similar high temps, can anyone else try this and report back their findings?

My thoughts

#0 Board/case temp
#1 NB or VRM temp
#2 CPU socket temp

About that F10G BIOS are they gonna finish it...? i flashed to F10G from F8..no noticeable changes, BTW has anyone done depth analysis these BIOS versions?

Hey guys, just picked up a 990XA for my 955BE. Absolutely better then the Asus M2N AM2+ I replaced tongue.gif

Anyways, I haven't spent a whole lot of time messing with the BIOS, as this is my backup pc, however, I haven't been able to find a modifier for the PCIe voltage. Is this the same as the PCIe clock speed? My ASRock 1155 board doesn't have an option in the bios to modify the voltage, but MSI Afterburner allows me to modify the voltage. Is AB dependent on the GPU more then the MB itself? I have a 6770 in the 16x PCIe slot. I enabled the option to unlock the voltage in MSI AB and still nothing.

Thanks in advanced!
