Quick testing of Gigabyte's MA790X-UD4 - Page 5

post #41 of 48
Well, the board will apply the backup BIOS software to the main BIOS. However, either the main BIOS chip had a defect or BOTH of them did b/c when the software would copy the BIOS, it would eventually get a checksum error and go through the process again. It was almost a nightly thing.

The board was sent back to Newegg already and I moved on to an ASUS M4A79. Couldn't be happier. It's been rock solid, which is more than I can say about the Gigabyte board.

Now, don't take this as a "Gigabyte sucks" thread. I think the build quality was great and the feature set was also very good. But I needed a stable system and after 2 weeks of fighting, I threw in the towel.

I just bought the same 710 cpu and gigabyte mobo. I have a question related to overclocking and unlocking the 4th core. I used to be into OC'ing back in the celeron 300A days and just getting back into things. Is your posted overlock max the cpu will do? I have a thermaltake R1 HS/fan ( that I used on my last cpu 5600+ ) so I'm aircooling only and also have a HD 4870 ( great video card btw! ) What steps do I need to go about these days to OC my cpu ( as bios settings have immensly increased since I last overclocked anything ) to what your posted OC was? Also about unlocking the 4th core, which I read only week 4 chips with do - any info reguarding that? Thanks for your help!

Hi everyone,

I just bought Gigabyte MA790X-UD4 mobo, I assembled the whole computer, placing my somewhat old videocard (Abit RX700 XT-256PCIE) in it and the system doesnt start. 1 long beep and 2 short from the manual this means there is something wrong with the videocard(if I understand it right)...

What might be the problem? Is that videocard not supported by the motherboard or something else?

please help me, all answers are appreciated

I currently own this mobo, and so far it has only lead me to dissapointments one after the other.

First I had to deal with sound stuttering during every time my HDD was active. Be it downloading, copying files, backing them up. my sound would skip, stutter and simply irritate the living hell out of me.

Then I had to deal with my cpu activity raising sky high when maximizing, minimizing or moving from left to right. (wich seems to be fixed now)

But now i ended up onto the sound issue again.
I have a thread open, at the sound & audio section right now.

There are still a few steps left that could get rid of it, but my hopes are rather small.
