I am looking at buying some 8300 cpu for about 88usd on aliexpress, new 2016 model 16xx batch.
However I am looking away too since I know currently no program I use takes up 2+ cores.
I may aswell just oc up my system since I am runing bare stock 3.8ghz on 4300.

Today I will be doing some oc, targeted 300fsb oc with ht at 3.9+ghz. Final checks for data back ups and we will be good to go biggrin.gif

Can't wait

Before I actually go into oc, I'd need to resurface my cpu and waterblock, since it was just slabed on quickly knowing I won't be pushing the oc any where near limits.

I might also want to clean off my dust on the radators, extremeley dirty

300fsb solid stable, however game and normal usage testing still needs to be done, I've encountered many times where a system could be prime stable but not normal usage stable thumb.gif

I had resurface my cpu block and I regret doing that, took me a long time just to get the mounting and paste right to recover the chill perfomance I had before.

From the past, where I had very poor temps on sabertooth 990fxa, guys suggested that having a fan blowing on the back of the cpu socket would help. From my oc experience this does nothing at all. the socket is only a plate of copper, it has zero fins nor have a very large contact area for airflow. I may consider doing a before after cpu socket temp comparison test using occt some day. I'd probally also make a new thread just for this.

I experienced a boot up failue quite a few times, this forced me to go from 300fsb to 250fsb.

Its not that my oc isn't stable, but its the way they made their bios that refuses to run 300fsb.
Example I have to set all settings for 300fsb while keeping the fsb at 200, once booted I can then go into bios and set to 300fsb and it will happliy run.

I can actually keep going with the oc, however I have other things to do.

I had been using altium designer to design my pcb for a tube pre amp that I had designed and planned to sell.

The system stayed solid stable and no crashes which was good.

This is the current oc that I am running stable at. I did this about 3 days ago. The room temps were about 23c and water were about 29.5c.

Wait is this on the same UD7? It survived?? I thought the melted indigo extreme shorted it out???

This is on a 990 ud3. I tried 1fsb higher than in picture and bsod within 5 miutes.

I haven't actually put the ud7 on a full test to see if it works, but from past testing it deffinitly doesn't work with a raid card installed. I don't have any single drives to test and see if it works without a raid card.
the 9590 is dead confirmed.

Oh that sucks. Probably the PCIE circuits shorted then. Oh well.
Anyway, as a fellow UD7 owner I appreciate your efforts in pushing the board's limits. It's given us a better understanding of what it can do and how it behaves.

The UD7 was a great board I had to say, however a bit lacking on the vrms. As they cannot handle a 9370oc without vrm water cooling, even with water cooling it gets extremely hot and cocky. Still very hot with a heat sink on the chokes.

Unlike the ud3 r5 . The 990 ud7 r1 was able to accept 320 something fsb without any boot up plorbems and reboot plorbems.
The 990 ud3 r5 refuses to run anything past 2133 stable and I have a 2400 tidrent x ram. I also read back on my oc I don't think the ud7 runs anything past 2133 either.

If I remver correctly, the 990 ud3 r2 was able to run stable with 2400 ram along with a 300fsb 3.9GHZ ht oc. No boot up error however reufses to reboot properly.

A quick review of the indigo xtreme vs moderate quality thermal paste with lapped cpu block. The indigo xtreme offered only about 2-4c temp drops over the thermal paste. If I rember correctly it was only 2c colder average. I recokn its not worth the money, time and risk using xtreme for this very small temp diffrence.

I actually feel like using indego extreme vs paste is giving me same performance redface.gif
