Yeah, I know it's taken a while to line everything up, but confirming a Rev. 1.1 UD7 is pretty much impossible from an online retailer. Every one I called said they wouldn't guarantee the board revision I'd get, so I was forced to find one through local channels. Finally tracked one down in Toronto at another branch of Canada Computers, and they're shipping it at no extra charge, but it'll take until the end of the week to get here at the earliest. Oh well. I've waited over 3 years to upgrade from my Phenom II X2 550BE; I can wait another few days to get the right motherboard for my new FX-8350.

Now, all I need to do is save up for better water cooling.... biggrinsmiley.gif

I plan on going with a ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z matched with a FX-8350.

I want to go all out here since the AMD boards are so much cheaper compared to intel. I just wanted to know if the Asus board is as solid as they are known to be or should i look at a Gigabyte counterpart ?

I was leaning to the Asus board, but first one I got was DOA, 2nd crapped out on its 2nd day. hence I went to gigabyte. just saying, Asus right now is a hit and miss but when you get a working board they work great.

Not to mention I tried a HD7970 from them too, it was DOA as well when it arrived, so I went Sapphire.

Don't have experience with any other 990FX boards except the CHV and CHV-Z but both are pretty awesome. Rock solid no matter the OC and have a ton of features. You can adjust pretty much anything you can think of

All up between me and friends we bought 4 CHV boards, none of which had any problems. This CHV-Z is the same, no problems.

Agreed, Sabertooth here (love it) and a few lower end asus boards on a-II/p-II type chips. So far I have more faith in asus than other brands (many gigas and msi's have just failed on me over the years, even my cheap boards end up being biostar (if there isn't an asus I find viable) before I touch giga or msi), however it wasn't this way years ago during the "all boards use cheap parts" years.

Might add, have made use of these same boards in enterprise class network setups with not a single rma (speaking of the 870 chipsets and up asus boards).

Same here, although I noticed that the new Ultra High LLC profile on my Saber R2 latest bios increases the actual VDDA voltage so I had to reduce it in the BIOS a couple of notches to get it under 2.7 while running. As someone noted here earlier, 2.7v and over goes into the red.

Question: while converting said video, i am hitting 58-62 degrees on the cores but yet socket is at 52. its definitely the cores i care about right? just double checking

Same here again. BF3 and video encoding, the most CPU intensive things that I'll ever do on my PC produces these same thermal conditions. It's only during stress testing that CPU socket temps go as high as 60c

Have you seen my question in the Saber thread about RAM voltage settings? smile.gif

Edit; it's answered.

No directly, but you have to bear i mind the impact that fsb boosting has on RAM, HT and NB speeds. It also tends to increase CPU temps a little compared to multi OCing.

Responded in the saber thread with a slight detail on VDDR vs Dram Voltage, however if you want to dig more on VDDR, Google for DDR power circuits and ddr3 vdda/vddr/vddq, you should pull up a decent amount of data in regards to what controls what (some of those pdf's do describe the acts of each in purpose, just didn't have much more time than to skim them).

Sazz: Kaa-kaa happens (did I spell that right? - lol). Awhile back I had a top end Gigabyte MA890fX-UD7. The reason I bought it was for the IDE/Floppy compatibility, as I was still trying to fool with DOS along side everything else on my big rig. Therein lies the problem. Twice I had to RMA the board back to Gigabyte for IDE/Floppy failure - everything else worked fine. The RMA process with Gigabyte was always smooth and flawless. The hassle was your lost downtime and you had to at least pay the freight one way. After the 2nd failure, GB sent me a new board with full warranty. I didn't even bother to fire it up. I put it on eBay and it was gone in a day or two, hence the Asus Sabertooth. Would I ever buy a Gigabyte again? Sure, no problem - I figure it was just my bad luck to get in the middle of a bad quality control run. All of the big 3, i.e., MSI, Asus,and Gigabyte (and to some extent Intel) are great products and its kind of like where are you - Chevy or Ford? (apologies to rice-burner owners as I live near Detroit). However, I do harbor reservation about MSI's tech support. But, I can understand "once burned twice wary".

Lovely, thanks. I'll do some reading. smile.gif

Just an FYI, there are a few open box 990FX boards on Newegg currently, reanging from the Asrock Extreme3 @ $84 + shipping to the UD7 @ $185 shipped. Might be a way to get a nice board and if they come in the box you can still get the rebate if one is offered. Just a thought for some you looking for a good deal.
