blackalphabet: Dual channel can work one of two ways:

Ganged: All cores are using both sets of memory in tandem for maximum speed. This is great when doing few tasks and will result in higher bandwidth in most test programs.

Unganged: Half the cores use one set of memory, half the cores use the other. This is great when doing tasks that have a multiplicity of threads or when doing more than one task at a time. As most bandwidth test programs are single threaded, you will almost universally see a lower bandwidth.

To All: Apparently, my computer is starting to dislike me. My RAM at DDR3-1333 6-7-7-18-1T-20 4-6-4-4 now blue screens. Instead now I am at DDR3-1333 6-7-7-20-1T-27 5-10-5-4. My bandwidth decreased by 200 MBps, 9850 MBps instead of 10,050 MBps, but if it is stable, I guess I will make do for now.

I tried running 8 instances of sci fi flix (doctor who) in vlc and it worked alright for the most part.. Problem is I could close all the exe's out but could not reach my desktop. I switched the power on the back off after ctrl alt delete" did not work.. I then started booting into a pentium II speed environment.. I thought I had fried something! I restarted 2 times after that and still no luck. I hit system restore in msconfig and I THINK... I am back to normal! ?? Any thoughts on how to correct this without system restore? I can run any tests you guys tell me to and post screen shots. perhaps this machine was made for a cozy speed and not for me to beat on per se..

Sounds like Cool-n-Quiet got stuck. Are you using BIOS F3 or F4? If you have F1 or F2, update that.

I am illiterate to an extent.. I could not see a bios version and sometimes my USB keyboard will work in BIOS and other times not. I will search youtube for a BIOS update vid or a thread somewhere on how to.. You might be able to tell from the screen shotsi posted.. Thanks again Blitz!

Hi, I'm new to this forum and am upgrading my system. I think I've narrowed down my mainboard choice to the GA-890FXA-UD5. I have a question for anyone who has purchased the board recently.
I'm probably going to order from NewEgg.com, and so was wondering if anybody on the forum has received version 2.1 of this board yet?
-Thanks
post #1767 of 4325
OK Thanks, 89FXAU52.F4 is my new BIOS.. I unplugged and tasered the MOBO half way through the update for added power..

Anyhow, If there is anything else I can do to avoid that in the future, please let me know. I am tempted to try attacking the system once more to see if there are any improvements. I had better create a restore point first thugh, Cheers! will check back in a little later.

Rev 2.1 has all four DIMMs rated for DDR3-2000. Rev 2.0 has two rated for DDR3-1600, two rated for DDR3-1866+, and an unlock chip for turning lesser CPUs into greater ones. (Such as a quad to a hexacore.)

FluidSynth is used by VLC Media Player to play MIDI files.

Lastly, the "Mainboard" tab of your CPU-Z will give you the information on the motherboard such as BIOS version.

Not sure, All I can tell from the Gigabyte website is that the 2.1 version changed the locations of the memory slots slighlty:

Taken from the Rev 2.1 manual:
"The four DDR3 memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as following: Channel 0: DDR3_1, DDR3_2 Channel 1: DDR3_3, DDR3_4"

....and from the Rev 2.0 manual:
"The four DDR3 memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as following: Channel 0: DDR3_1, DDR3_3 Channel 1: DDR3_2, DDR3_4"

If you examine the board photos, Rev 2.1 has:
Slot1=Blue Slot2=White Slot3=Blue Slot4=White
where Rev 2.0 has:
Slot1=Blue Slot2=Blue Slot3=White Slot4=White

They also removed Note 2 from the Memory Section of the features in the Manual that read:
"(Note 2) To reach DDR3 1866 MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets."

There are also slight changes near the heatpipe bend between the NB and SB, where the Rev 2.1 is missing a couple of chips that are present in that spot on the Rev 2.0 board.

The Rev 2.1 board has silkscreened text "Core Boost" next to the ATI logo by the SB, where the Rev 2.0 board says "ON/OFF Charge" in that same spot.

Gigabyte doesn't really say much as to what changed from Rev 2.0 to Rev 2.1. I did notice that the BIOS releases for Rev 2.0 span from F1, F2, F3, F4. But the first BIOS release for the Rev 2.1 board starts at F3 and goes to F4.

Anyone else know more about the differences?
