no I'm not upgrading. I'm buying a second hand motherboard to limp me through till Pinnacle Ridge. Ryzen 2. Maybe we can see some better overclock ability with Ryzen 2. Once Ryzen 2 is out. I'll sell or part out this rig and buy a brand new from the ground up Ryzen 2 machine. I'm looking at picking up a used GD65, M5A99FX or better board. I'm really hoping to grab a used Kitty or GD80 though.!

I'd actually shy away from a used GD-80 or GD 65 unless you trust the fellow that had it before. They won't protect themselves like the ASUS's will , so it's on the owner to know when to ease up.

Sorry for the bad luck.
Ryzen Shine!

Also you should use a different wire or psu (I am assuming the psu is modular and comes with a few eps options ) or make your own cable or new connection

A ryzen gen 1 upgrade would not be bad. Your mobo would likely be compatible with ryzen 2. Just my 2 cents. Esp in productivity I am absolutely loving my ryzen rig....

Agree with Mega on this one, you motherboard didn't blew up for no reason.

I would check that if i were you otherwise you end up with the same problem.

I agree with the upgrading to ryzen though, the performance is there but they take the "fun" away since there is hardly any overclocking capability unfortunately.. That being said, its more "fair" when you can get to the same results as it is no fun when some can hit much higher clocks on the same chip and you lost the silicon lottery, its boring but more "fair" IMO.

Well, if you get a 1700 which starts at a 3.0GHz clockspeed with a 3.7GHz max best-case two-core turbo, an all-core OC to 4.0GHz is pretty good. Starting point to finish line it's the same as clocking an 8350 to 5.0GHz, it's just that 5 is larger than 4 so you feel like you're going nuts with FX in relative terms. Of course, Ryzen at 4.0GHz is a monster relative to Vishera.

Hey there FX-8320/FX-8350 owners,
 

Would you consider signing up with Team OCN for the 2017 Pentathlon (May 5th through May 19th).  There is so much time left an we really could use your help.

 

This event is truly a GLOBAL battle with you team OCN going up against many teams from across the world and while we put in a good showing at last year’s event by finishing 6th, we could do with a lot more CPU/GPU compute power, especially CPU POWER.  All you need to do is sign up and crunch on any available hardware that you can spare.

 

The cool thing about this event is that it spread over 5 disciplines over varying lengths of time (different projects) so there is a lot of strategy/tactics involved.

We look forward to having you and your hardware on our team.  Again, this event lasts for two weeks and takes place May 5th through the 19th.

 

  • Download the software here.

          https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php

 

          Presently we really would like some help with the following projects:

          For CPU's - Cosmologyathome.org and worldcommunitygrid.org (OpenZika only).

          If you have a GPU available - Einsteinathome.org

          Note: For every project you fold on, you will be offered if you want to join a team - type in overclock.net (enter) then JOIN team.

 

  • Remember to sign up for the Boinc team by going here:  You can also post any questions that your may have - this group is very helpful :thumbsups

          8th BOINC Pentathlon thread

          To find your Cross Project ID# - sign into your account and it will be located under Computing and Credit

 

         

 

This really is an exciting and fun event and i look forward to it every year and I am hoping that you will join us and participate in this event :grouphug:

 

BTW - There is an awesome BOINC Pentathlon badge for those who participate :thumbsups

I recently made a "sidegrade" to an Asus Aura 970. My OC requires a touch more vcore, but I might be able to optimize it still. My build felt a little incomplete with the UD3-990FXA due to sleep issues, bios quirks, slow posting time, and so fourth. I'm happy with my sidegrade and I think I'll be happy with the performance for at least a few years. At 4.7 ghz, my single threaded performance is just good enough and I don't need the highest FPS. Considering high core/thread counts are finally being supported in software, my old Vishera is still relevant thumb.gif

@AlastairI'm not in a hurry to upgrade either.

I'm hoping we will continue seeing longer periods of time between console and PC upgrades. It seems like this might be the case with: better optimized software; Moore's Law hitting a wall; movement towards more cores in many devices. With that in mind, those 6-8 core 12-16 thread Ryzens should be in service for a long time.2cents.gif

I would check that if i were you otherwise you end up with the same problem.

I agree with the upgrading to ryzen though, the performance is there but they take the "fun" away since there is hardly any overclocking capability unfortunately.. That being said, its more "fair" when you can get to the same results as it is no fun when some can hit much higher clocks on the same chip and you lost the silicon lottery, its boring but more "fair" IMO.
my board didn't blow up. I had a poor connection in the EPS connection causing an arc. Most likely a combination of wear and tear on the four year old connector and simple physics (expansion and Contraction caused by heat.) causing a gap in the connection. Big enough to cause an arc but not big enough to shut the system down. The system was running 100% fine when I had the problem. Smelt burning and shut it down normally. I only killed the board when I tried to unplug the fused EPS.

Mega man didn't allude to the problem. He simply stated that as I have melted the connection I am going to need a new cable. Makes sense since I had to break the entire EPS connector and over flex the board thus killing it.

I won't be upgrading to Ryzen.

I will simply get a board to see me to Ryzen 2 and Vega. Where the overclocking gains can be had from a new and improved zen and better process modes. And better motherboards.

@cssorkinman

What information can you give me about the GD65. I used one many years ago. But had no where near the experience then as I find I have now. I had a look at the lifeless husk of one of my dead GD65's. (killed by power surge) its a revision 3.0 board.

I saw it has a UP1601P PWM controller that supports 4+2 channels. So I assume the GD65 has doubled phases. It has 10 renesas 20652A DrMOS units.

I haven't removed my M5A99FX yet. I could never seem to find information on the product numbers of the M5's VRM. But I know it is superior to the GD65. What are the advantages/disadvantages of the DrMOS units compared to the M5A99FX's stand alone digital Fets and drivers?

What I would like to know what are the various differences between the two boards.

The advantages and disadvantages of the doubled up phases.
I'm waiting to try get information on the M5A99FX. But does anyone know what FET's it uses? What PWM controller? How much better is the M5A99FX.

I know the GD65 is sorely lacking in some areas. Like lack of front panel USB 3. Is there a way to get front panel USB 3?
