post #971 of 3278
TouchBIOS and easytune report my CPU as 36 and HWMonitor shows my tmpin2 at 36 i am convinced it is the cpu as when i added a second fan to my heatsink temps went down.

There is something not right with the GA-990XA i have not had one crash even when stressing the board with prime etc @4.6ghz its just knowing which temp is cpu as the fx has a max temp of 61 degrees.

I am so regretting going amd why did i not go intel my old q6600 felt faster than this pile of crap.mad.gif

Don't be discouraged by tmpin2(hwmonitor) or Touchbios temps.

If you read the overview on this page it talked about how the vrms get "obscenely high at serious loads and overclocks".
Now i've tested with the CPU alarm temp and it does in fact get set off when tmpin2 hits a certain threshold...but i'm not entirely convinced. I've read several posts where people have contacted Gigabyte about what thermal diod tmpin2 is reporting to where Gigabyte replied it is the chipset/vrms and it can withstand a constant temp of 85c.
I'm basing my overclocks off Core temps although i've yet to see tmpin2 or touchbios reports temps over 70c. (safe MAX limit for my cpu)

Tmpin2 i think might be a insane sensor..
just reset my NBHS with and my temps were 2c higher on tmpin2
Lowered my clock back down to 3.5ghz CPU and 2ghz on the CPU-NB to let my voltages be auto set...

Tmpin2 shows 4c hotter now :rolleyes

***EDIT~
Well I installed my old 80mm fan in the 5.25" bays as a intake angled towards the mobo.
my tmpin2 is down to 25c idle 36c load

pals...
after 1hr of prime95, i also started msi kombuster along with prime95... in continuation.... to test the stability...
and boom,,after 20 min, BSOD...
the temp, shoot to around 75-77*c and BSOD,,,

so now need help in further tweaking the OC.system....
cant do any more thing for ventilation...as my cabinet already has

2x120mm - 1200 rpm fans for air intake...(front, bottom)
1x80mm - 2000 rpm for exhaust (top)
1x120mm - 2000 rpm for exhaust (back)

while CPU hosts, 2x120mm - 2000 rpm blade master fans on my 212+

so no more fans....

now just need some better settings..to keep teh temp down..or else...trim down to something say 3.8 or 3.5...

but need help for that...

thanx

waiting for a prompt reply..pals...

thanx in adv.

Hey everyone! new here.. anyway, i was wondering if anyone has flashed to the new F5 bios for the GA-970A-UD3..? I wanna try it out, but i dont' want to have to go through re-installing windows again like i did when i first got the board and flashed it to F4... not like a huge deal, but re-installing windows isn't the funnest thing to do. hahah so i just want to make sure it won't kill windows, and do you guys know what changes from F4 to F5? thanks in advance!

Sorry, new member need help here smile.gif

My new PC got BSOD even though its not overclocked , can some1 help ?

My Spec :
- Motherboard : GA-970A-D3
- CPU : FX-8150 (Zambezi 8-Core)
- RAM : Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 (9-9-9-24)(1600Mhz)
- VGA : Digital Alliance GTX-560 (2-GB)(256-Bit) <-- From my previous PC (Works fine though)
- PSU : Silverstone 700W
- HDD : Seagate 1TB <-- From my previous PC (Works fine though)
- Case : NZXT Phantom

It's not OC-ed but still got blue screen out of nowhere ? i tried using 1 pcs of RAM and still got BSOD, and my RAM cant get 1600Mhz, its only 1333Mhz.

Is it a problem with Mobo-CPU compability ?

What should i do ? drool.gif

Check out these updates.. i was having the same problem with my FX-4100 + 990xa-ud3 (random bluescreens) and these seemed to help. Seems to be some issue with core scheduling between the Bulldozer processors and windows. Now having said that your BSOD could be completely unrelated. This is just the first thing that came to mind.




Hope this helps
