post #2821 of 8112
If anyone is looking Newegg got a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Motherboard for cheap.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514 - $150

its got a 8+2 vrm power phase which will support BD chips overclocking as far as they go.

Just stumbled upon it so I figured I let you guys know. Also, they have FX-8120 for $10 off, $200 total with promotion.

Too bad the UD3 is complete rubbish for overclocking 81XX CPUs

Yup,
Bad bios support (last 2 bios releases have made things worse), No LLC control, Doesn't handle voltages above 1.5V properly.
Its all good for a phenom 2 or a small overclock tho.

Gigabyte like all the mobo makers are still trying to sort all of the OC features of the BD architecture. New BIOS often appear every few weeks as progress is made on the new architecture. None of the mobos have a perfect BIOS at this point so a little patience is required.

Well it doesnt like anything over 2600mhz so 25xx Mhz is what most run, the gains arent bad but wont go 3000mhz like thuban. Even at 2500mhz it smoked my 1100T at 3000mhz cpu-nb on maxxmem tests. Its IMC can actually come close to intel.

Interesting. F6c BIOS is fine for me. I can agree on the no LLC support. And I still haven't tried to go above 1.5V, so I can't say much about that. I'd think my Noctua would cough blood if I would go that far. smile.gif 4.7GHz at about 1.46V is what I run on a daily basis. Have to think about going under water if I feel like going further. Or wait for a really cold day. smile.gif

I have heard that Gigabyte has been kinda slow on getting the qualtiy bios suport out for the BD. I figured they should have had it mostly worked out by now. guess not.

I did here that there was a certain bios update that Gbyte owners were sticking with that worked best with BD. I think F6a or F6c like man said above.

The baord has a 8+2 power phase so it can handle the BD just fine, you just need the right bios support. Thats all, theres nothing wrong with the board.
