I'm using a gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 3.0 motherboard I can't change the vcore voltage for some reason it just gives me auto, normal, and off set values should i just leave it at auto ?

The "offset" is the change. I'm running exact board and rev3. Basically take your stock vcore which will be in range of 1.325 to 1.357 or around there and then ADD the offset. So I've had to use +.050 to +.125 in various oc's to get around 1.39-1.50v range I was looking for but that's with no LLC. Keep in mind as u raise the LLC so dies the starting voltage thus less offset is needed to be added. Usually u need high to ultra or extreme LLC once oc over 4.6-5+GHz (this on my 8350 chip) with lower offset to be stable and better temps.

But in short the offset is addded or subtracted to starting stock vcore to get the voltage setting ur looking for. I too prefer the exact set way but this works just fine and I adjusted to the board and bios

Hey Sin0822!

Thanks for this guide! I read it 3 times. It was very helpful for me:)

I managed this oc after reading this guide:

http://valid.canardpc.com/2694115

and yes its stable thumb.gif






The high max temps were caused by me forgetting to turn the fan controller on at the start of IBT biggrin.gif

I have try to overclock my cpu but i have a problem !!

I change :

CPU VCORE = 1,466V /1,42 / 1,408 ...

CPU VID : 1,25V

TURBO = DISABLE

When start OCCT i have this cpu vdrop after some minutes ... Vdrop is permanent ...

After that occt fail !!

Max core temps = 47C

Any idea ?

You may need to set your LLC to Extreme, and possibly bump up your CPU voltage .025v. Might help a little. Looks like you're getting some serious vdroop when you start stressing the system.

Well...these boards are NOTORIOUS for their *vdroop*..one of the main downsides..but it's typically nothing crazy.. I (was) using a UD3 (rev3) board on my 8350 chip up until last week.. and to be honest, was quite pleased with it.. it performed VERY well.. a VERY easy oc up to 4.8Ghz with great temps... and although the voltages fluctuated a bit..i never saw anything like what you're seeing..

Two things.. your voltage seems a bit high for only a 4.5Ghz oc.. but maybe your chip has a higher vcore vid to begin with? mine was (is) 1.317.. lower then average I know.. but still, yours likely is what 1.325-1.34v?..
Secondly, as mentioned by the first guy who responded.. LLC.. VERY important on these boards.. I typically used extreme or ultra high.. sure, it will raise the voltage some but helps a lot with oc stability and vdroop..

but ultimately, the only knocks I had with the (my particular) board was the voltages running a *bit* higher then I thought necessary..and LLC raising them more then probably required .. and as well, there was a bit more voltage fluctuation then I thought there should have been although nothing terrible.. I also wished the BIOS had actual MANUAL voltage settings as opposed to just the "offsets" but I adjusted and coped.. and I ultimately wanted a few more detailed oc settings and specifically vrm power control settings (as is available in many Asus boards, like the one I just switched to, the Sabertooth990FX R2.0) and it's Digi+ power controls...

As for the Gigabyte mobo, the biggest problem i had WAS, the "THROTTLING".. but thankfully that was figured out after a while.. I guess you should ensure the same for your situation cuz who knows..maybe that's a culprit in your case... anyways.. typically APM has to be disabled to stop it (aside from the typical power saving features)..but my UD3 board and REV3 didn't have that.. so on REV3 boards, "HPC mode" HAS to be enabled to STOP the throttle.. after I figured that out.. i was MUCH happier with the performance, oc, etc..
And once again.. I was able to achieve quite a fair bit on that board.. with AMAZING temps.. with only a Corsair H50 water cooler.. right up to 5Ghz and beyond (stopped at 5.15) so ultimately I can't complain and have rather positive feedback about that series of board.. So I assume your UD7 should be at least as good and that issue you're having is strange and shouldn't be happening..

Ultimately if you can't even get a stable 4.5Ghz (and I think EVERY 8350 owner should get at least that), after trying various settings changes with the voltages, llc, etc.. then I have to assume your board is *somewhat* defective...or technically, until tested on another board, it could also be the cpu itself and maybe you have a core or cores that are pooched.. maybe check this out too for a test:
got it from ComputerRestore-in his Sig.. way of testing to see if your 8350 is defective or not

Ok boys I am dancing with this motherboard the UD7 and the AMD FX 6300. Now I am new to OC and I am running the setup listed in my profile.

I overclocked the board with the settings he used and just did my CPU to 4100 and disabled the turbo. Stable as heck but my temps are up there 61 C running prime. So I should drop my voltage down to keep temps below 50 C right?
post #150 of 228
another nice guide Sin + rep

ok so starting next month i am delving into the world of Ln2 benching. I have a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev 1.1 which i will start with an FX-6300. A couple of questions.
1) for extreme overclocking what would you recomend for RAM as in speed?? i was thinking some tridentX but not sure what rated speed i should get!
2) for Ln2 do you do all your overclocking in BIOS or Easy Tune or both?
