Mobo is 990fxa-ud3. Rev3. fC bios :
All proper power management settings are enabled / disabled as should be in bios.
LLC is at auto and is pretty steady fluctuating periodically between 1.392 and 1.404 Volts.
I'm running at 4.2 ghz and in the bios I lowered the voltage to -.050v , which I guess runs at approximately 1.4 volts on average as stated above by the fluctuations. Seems like I'm getting very little Vdroop so that's good, and not getting any throttling !That background aside, what do you guys think I should do next with my frequencies and voltages? How long should I prime95 test before moving on to a different oc setting to test?
Only problem is my current temps with my h60 cooler at 4.2ghz and 1.4v is running at 60 degs max... Has my thermal paste not cured? Seems like too high of temps for that voltage? Ambient room temp is about 75 degrees
I just got my 8320 today and am at 4.5 GHz with all power saving features turned off (AMD CnC, c1e, svm, turbo core...bla bla) and I have HPC mode ON!!!
My voltages at 4.5Ghz is offset in my 990fxa-ud3 gigabyte bios to +.025 volts and LLC is set to high, I'm getting voltages around 1.44 for a long time under stress testing and then...BOOOM! Jumps up to 1.5 Volts and temps instantly jump up to 75?!....What...the...hell....is going on!? these temps don't seem to be normal. Which monitors should I be watching in HWMonitor?20mb image hosting
Upgrade that cooler. It can't cope with that much voltage. I have an h100 and my temp rose to 70 on the cores at around 1.5v. That is already too high for me.
I have the 990fxa-ud3 rev 1.0 board but i also have the problems with the voltage. But a vdroop of ~0.09v is common. What was the voltage at in the bios when you put to the offset on +.025?
but who has experience with Gigabyte's motherboard repair service?
Last week I've send my motherboard in to the store where i bought it and they found it defect. They mailed me that it would take 2 to 4 weeks before they receive the replacement or repaired board.
Is it common for manufacturers to repair an faulty motherboard?
The issue was random reboots under heavy loads(gaming) and a broken temp. sensor.
