990fx chipset driver download. - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Thanks alot bro. I tried the gigabyte site and I actually can't locate my chipset drivers. I tried auto detect on amd and it didn't detect my chips. I even looked in system devices unless i'm missing them. A guy with a new giga board told me they're hard to find. I'll try that download for sure. Have you had any ram problems? Which board do you have? I'm trying to get my 1866 mhz to run just regular speed and manual incremental settings didn't work, eorp didn't work. I get a flashing red warning even with optimized loaded in the bios. I know this board is amped I just gotta get it there. Thanks again. I'm short on time til tomorrow I think oldcompgeek could use a pro's help he posted above. I shared my limited knowledge about his issues. Maybe you can help him I'm new past dual core and ddr2,ssd's, raid, almost everything. much respect and peace always.

Thank you for any advice or help as Ive watched countless you tube videos and read buchu articles without much luck.
System hardware: aerocool strike-x st case, fatality 990 fx mobo, fx 8120 cpu, zalman 9900 max red cooler, 2x4 gb ripjaws x 1600 ram, sapphire 6870 flex cards in x-fire, ocz fatality power supply 750 watt modular, tv tuner card, aerocool strike-x fan controller (dual slot), asus burners (1-dvd/cd 1-blu ray/dvd/cd), battery back up protection unit, and a asus 100,000:1 hd 1080 monitor and a somethin er other red lit keyboard with a gigabyte gaming mouse. I want to know as much as possible before I begin the build as this is my first Asrock build after switching from asus due to all of the great features the fatality board has to offer. Thanks again for any direction or advice as the "eggsperts" have never responded although newegg does ship their stuff very quickly lol.

Hey oldcompgeek,

Since you are using the FX8120, I would recommend you to head over at AsRock's website for your board, and install the latest UEFI firmware.

Here's the page for your 990FX Fatal1ty Professional
http://www.asrock.com/MB/download.asp?Model=Fatal1ty%20990FX%20Professional&o=BIOS

Please revert everything back to stock, and make sure your system is 100% stable before engaging the flash. Read tutorials for your particular board before flashing, as it depends from board to board in preparing for the update. Usually there will be guides at AsRock's forums or you may refer to the clubs here at OCN.

Please take note of the precautions, as a bad flash may end up with a bricked board!

For setting up your SSD, I would recommend non other than the excellent guide already available here:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-guide-optimization-for-ssds-hdds

Read it thoroughly, one of the best guides in regards to setting up SSDs for Windows, and will be a seamless procedure. smile.gif

Hey,

Glad you found it helpful. smile.gif I'm using the MSI 990FXA-GD80 which is also a 990FX board like your Gigabyte GA990FXA UD5. biggrin.gif I'm running 4sticks of A-Data XPG 1600 2GB modules, they are rated at 1.65 @1600 at CAS9 settings, and I don't have any problems running them at their advertised speeds.

If you don't mind me asking, what CPU are you using ? The Phenoms generally don't like higher spec RAM, rather it's more beneficial to have tighter timings and the performance is even greater even at 1333/1600 at CAS7/8. Whereas the Bulldozer IMC takes anything up to 1866 with ease, but I could be wrong though.

I just went through the page of your board, it lists: 1 x Realtek RTL8111E chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)
Which is the same as my 990FXA-GD80, I've to install the Realtek drivers before I can use the ethernet controller when doing a fresh install of Windows 7.

Here's the driver for the RTL8111E chip for your boards, directly from Realtek:
http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Go to Realtek>Downloads>Communication Network ICs>Network Interface Controllers>10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet>PCI Express>Software:

Locate> Win7 and WinServer 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program (SID:1483418)
The current version as of today is 7.050 dated 2012/1/20.

Hope it works. smile.gif

I've got a fx4100 in this one, I have an asus with a phenom x2 555 BE. When I looked around tiger,newegg, and other sites to check prices, all of them had this in the mobo specs description * to run 1866 MHz ram install an am3 processor first. Nobody I've talked to did that and I didn't pay any attention the box bragged that the new am3+ bios was already installed. A LOT of people are having to go through the long process of getting this ram up to speed. anything over 1333 and it flashes a red warning voltages not optimized. I'm kinda p.o.'d that this ram doesn't run as advertised. The only ram listed as OC* is 2000 mhz I think. I have the ()1600 ()1866 etc... incremental option submenu. I'm using corsair dominator 2 x 4 gigs. I installed the realtek drivers to after my os intall from the mobo cd. I seriously thought about going with msi. I've had 3 asus boards since high school. I decided to look at gigabyte and msi. I'm gonna check realtek in case there's a driver update. I thought I would try clear cmos jumper install the 555 and see if that works. I'd like to see if the cpu unlock will unlock the other two core, and see if the ram issue's fixed. I have to take my bulldozer out to put in a hyper 212 evo in to keep it cool. The thing I'm having trouble with is finding some bios menus. I can't find dma and pio for one or the turn num lock off. I found the second graphics card x8 x16 or auto when I pressed cntrl and f1. I'm not sure if i missed that in the manual and I would think f8 boots to safe mode. I'm wishing I had gone with msi. evga, asus, msi, and gigabyte make the best boards IMO. Thanks for your help dude. If you have any idea how I can find the other bios setting I'd appreciate it. Thanks again and much respect.......

Thanks bud. 4.6? That's wikkid fast. Seriously? My board is posessed evidently.lmao I'd be happy to run my ram past 1333. I'm wondering if this board is fubar. I've never had a board that doesn't show the north and southbridge in device manager. Peace always and much respect........

By 4.6 do you mean the processor at 4.6GHz ? Then no lol, my 955BE is at 4GHz with the RAM set to 1600 manually. The Phenoms IMC is rated up to 1333, but can well handle speeds above 1333. I suggest you do a UEFI update for your board with the 555BE and then install the FX4100. Try a different set of RAMs for doing the update, if you can't get those Dominators to work.

Any cheap DDR3 will do the job biggrin.gif

Thanks I appreciate that it's a good idea. I only have the corsair. all my other ram is some viper II and ocz gold ddr2. That's why I'm lost and the build and pretty much drivers bios settings and probly everything is fubarred. I hope fubar isn't a forum violation. I thought I'd try to get two birds by starting off like the sites descriptions recommended before putting an am3+ in , and maybe unlock the phenom too. What I'm not sure of is, if I do manage to unlock it will it stay unlocked. The reason I'm so lost is i clinged to ddr2 sata2 and hdd's. I never oc'd the old stuff past a slight overclock without timings and stuff. So now I'm lookin at a long weekend, info overload and my heads already buzzin'. I'll try that dude it might help. I'm used to goin' to nivida and picking the chipset driver and installing it. Many thanks and much respect.......

I'm a little confused with the chipset drivers from AMD for my ASUS Crosshair V formula Z. When i go to install the chipset from ASUS's website for the board it wants to install the Catalyst Control Center. I was reluctent to install this because it was an older version of Catalyst then i already had installed. Do i already have the Chipset for my board with the Catalyst driver for my card from AMD's website? I thought it was just for my graphics!!! Should i install the Chipset with the control center than install the newest version of Catayst again or will it see i already have the newest version?
