Still got the performance problems. But the crashes are almost gone..

Ok, so a brand new build. Chipset drivers are all installed?

BIOS Version F3 or newer?

I see you're running 16GB of Ram (4X4) did you rule out bad ram? Run memtest, or take out divide the stick into sets of 2 and only run 2 at a time.

I just installed the chipset. (Got it from the 7950 club).

BIOS.. I have no idea wich are the newest, i can write up my BIOS version.. But i don't know more than that: 015.023.000.001.000000 I don't know what it means, but according to sapphire TriXx this is it.

I testet the rams.. Wow, that must be some time ago. If you can link the Memtest (didnt find it, even though i googled it) i could run that.

Oh, I was referring to the Motherboard Chipset Drivers and BIOS. If you ended up with an older version UD3 board, then the original BIOS doesn't fully support Bulldozer.

I'd recommend installing the most recent non-beta BIOS. You'll need to make sure you get the proper BIOS for the Revision of your Motherboard.
examples: Rev 1.0, Rev. 1.1, Rev 1.2, Rev 3.0

If you used the Driver DVD that came with your motherboard, then you probably have the Chipset Drivers installed. But you can also check the Gigabyte webside to see if there is an updated one.

You can check the Motherboard Revision on your Motherboard Box if you still have it. If you don't have the box anymore, then you can find the Revision written on the motherboard. I believe on Gigabyte Motherboards it is between the PCIe lanes, but I could be wrong. (Make sure your computer is powered off and unplugged, if you need to poke around at the motherboard, or you'll fry it. Also press the power button when it's unplugged to fully discharge the motherboard)

Once you have that info, just go to Gigabyte.com. There is a search box in the top right. Type your motherboard model number. You have yours listed in your signature GA-970A-UD3. From there you can select your Revision. Go to Support and Downloads.
Under download Type - Select BIOS.

Once you download and Extract the BIOS file, if you did install the DVD Driver disk for your motherboard, then you'll have a program called @BIOS that can be used to update your BIOS.

Good luck.

Well...

If you have the most up to date BIOS that supports your CPU, your Ram tested fine, you have a different GPU and still have similar issues of crashes and not being able to play games higher than Low settings.

Then you may have a defective motherboard or CPU.

What is the exact motherboard model you have? Is it 970a-DS3?

And it's bios version F6..

Hmmm F6 and F5 were pretty good on the UD3 line. Did you update the BIOS through the online option of @ BIOS?
Both times I did that I got a corrupt BIOS, it actually says on their website not to use that function.

If so, maybe try getting the latest BIOS and do the "Update from File" setting of @BIOS

I hahe suddenly freezes and dont know whats happening !! CPU overclock isnt issue for sure. I realy dont know whats wrong. I suspect WIndows or some other software ( maybe AMD driver ) or beta BIOS for board ( i have latest BIOS for my board ). It freezes with no pattern, not in some hevy load, it seems random to me.
