Quick testing of Gigabyte's MA790X-UD4 - Page 2

post #11 of 48
I've owned 4 Gigabyte motherboards and I've never had an issue with quality, and I've always found them great for overclocking (ever since the AMD Barton haha).

This board is great, i have a stable 3.2 atm. Still waiting on those 720 price drops though!
Its not overclocked, it resets every like 5 minutes, ive tried reseating the processor, video card, and everything... it cant hold a single stable overclock, for example: at everythign stock it wont pass an OCCT 1 hour test... as soon as the test starts, it crashes. i cant overclock my video card by a single mhz, etc...

Some gigy boards are crappy though, they can't overclock a 5400 BE without making the VRM go crazy. Like the 780G S2H.

Sure that's not your powersupply? Or an incorrect BIOS setting? Try dropping the HT Link down to 1600MHz or something.

Not my power supply for sure, i had an antec 650w that died on me, and now i have a corsair 750w, it just has to be the mobo, its the only part left that i have had for 2+ years. and it gets worse every day... i did notice, when i used to be able to oc a little bit, that if i dropped the HT link to 1800 it gave me a little added stability, but if i recall any less and it wouldn't post.

Pretty sure 3.9ghz stable on that setup was more than decent. Maybe you should practice overclocking a little more, you might actually get some good results when you know what you're doing
I know everything there is to know about AMD overclocking... tbh your post sounded very arrogant.

Did your board come with F2 already flashed or did you have to flash it upon receiving it?

See how high you can get that NB freq. I've seen people with theirs around 4Ghz. Also -- you could do a little experiment and see if that 4th core is unlockable...
