Anyone using an 8350 with a Gigabyte UD3?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I built my PC at the end of the summer and was kind of on a budget but still wanted something nice. I have a gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 and a Phenom II 965 BE at the moment. Thinking about upgrading to Vishera when the government gives me my money back but dont know if it will be worth the money.

currently overclocked to 4.2 GHZ and really am happy with performance but it can always be better right?

Just wondering if anyone has used this motherboard and an 8350 and a UD3 and been able to get a pretty solid stable overclock without having to go crazy with it.

If I do upgrade this I may also get another 6950 from a friend and crossfire them along with the better processor..

Just some thoughts, discuss...

Well, I got a much worse mobo that only have a 4+1 power phase and a tiny VRM heatsink, and I'm able to OC my 6100 to 4.8Ghz stable.

All you need is some decent cooling and you'll be fine.

I know that Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 has a vdroop and that depend on the amount of the vdroop on a 8 cores which this depends on how high you can oc it.

Ive ran Prime and IntelBurn quite a few times testing stability and really havent seen any significant Vdroop but maybe that is because my phenom is 4 core not 8. Would the droop be exacerbated by more cores. I am assuming so simply because double the cores is going to double the amount of power being drawn which will stress everything more.

Also I cant help but notice the quote in your sig saying that the BD/PD are not necessarily better for gaming than my current phenom, am i crazy for thinking about this and just have a bite of the upgrade bug? The most stress that this PC sees is definitely for gaming, there is no video rendering or benchmarking going on around here just my daily driver that puts a few hours gaming in every day or so.

I would check this thread for any questions related to the Vishera 8350 in the UD3. I just got my board from a fellow member on here last week and it's been great so far! I got the Rev 1.0 board though that does not have LLC to control the Vdroop. I have yet to overclock my 8350, but that's coming soon! I just hear it's a bit more tricky to find that sweet spot with the Rev 1.0 vs the 1.1 or 1.3 that has LLC.

Well the new 83xx are comparable to the 2500K now, which is better than your processor by a fair marin.

AMD has done a good job with the Piledrivers chips. If you feel you need, or just want more power, I'd say go for it! thumb.gif

i have an fx8120 and the 990fxa ud3.
coming from a 955 overclocking is a little different on bulldozer/vishera but i think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the performance increase.
the only thing to note is that the northbridge does get hot, having good airflow or fans that blow onto the motherboard will help you get the most out of your chip.

you should be able to get a decent overclock with an 8350 and good cooling thumb.gif

VRM cooling is also important if you really want to push the chip to it's max. Use a spot fan to make sure they stay nice and cool so they don't throttle.

Well the board is a revision 1.1 so Ive got that going for me which is good.

Have a fairly basic case as it was a first build but have 3 120/140 intake fans, 2 of which are pointed directly at the board and 2 exhaust fans and a closed loop CPU cooler all my temps seem to be well within check so I am not highly worried about that.

Dang you guys, just when i thought i might get away from wanting this you have to go and make the itch worse. Really though great info and it is highly appreciated, keep it coming.

I've ran an 8350 with a 990FXA-UD3 before. It works fine but doesn't overclock especially well. That said, it works better than the other two 990FX boards I've tried. I tested an MSI 990FXA-GD80 and it was terrible with droop. I also tested an ASRock 990FX Extreme4 and it too sucked. The UD3 was decent.
