[Official] Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5/UD7 Owners Thread/Club - Page 407

post #4061 of 4331
Hi everybody !
I have a GA-890FXA-UD5 (rev 2.1) and a Thuban 1100T , 8G (2x4G) G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 for a period longer than 2 years , and I was quite pleased seeing gringott & Randomevents have managed to run an FX-8350 on this mobo with F7e BIOS flashed on it .
So , today I can confirm I was able to repeat that experience too and I'm impressed with the difference of performance .
After I successfully flashed the F7e BIOS I did disable C1E and CnQ , raised the CPU voltage to 1.35V and also put the multi on x20 with my old 1100T . The memory speed went back to 1333 but I said it's safer to leave it that way . Then I just put my new FX-8350 into the white socket , put the cooler on top of it , kept only one harddrive and started the PC .
Besides it was faster , it ran 3 degrees Celsius cooler ( 28 instead of 31 ) than the old CPU at the same frequency as seen in PC Health on the BIOS .
Raising the voltage of the RAM memory to 1.61 volts , and changing from 2T to 1T helped keeping memory speed at 1600 .
Thank's to everybody sharing on this forum . I'm using a light Linux ( Fatdog64) and everything it's fine smile.gif . Later I'll try to install - for testing - Windows 7 .

I'm gonna try the BIOS later tonight...

Its at it's default speed - 1333MHz at I think 9-8-8-8-24 for timings. I'm not sure if you intend to go higher, but personally there is no reason to. Just as a reminder, sacrificing latency in favor of RAM frequency will get you no results. A higher RAM frequency really only benefits GPUs (and IGPs). CPUs care more about about latency. That being said, try keeping your RAM frequency as close to default and you should be fine.

For me personally, I didn't even bother attempting to increase the FSB. I only meddled with the multiplier.

well, I'm testing F6 bios, since I found out that F7e don't have Raid rom...

seems pretty stable

Doesn't have RAID? Yes it does, I've got RAID-0 running right now on my F7e system. I'm using the G-RAID for this (the white ports).

ok, ok

let me get this straight, and have some questions about it...

since you have raid 0 running;

I have a Intel SSD for the OS, and 2 WD caviar black in raid 0.

would it work, If I flash bios f7e and move the raid to the white ports and set ports 0,1,2,3 as AHCI, so I can leave my SSD and the DVD combo and one hot-swap rack in the blue ports?

would it work? is there any possibility to loose the RAID?

I would HIGHLY recommend you backup your RAID any time you do a BIOS update. Not doing so (on any system) would be foolish, even if you had full proof that it should work. AFAIK, you generally can't move a non-software RAID 0 setup between controllers. You have to either use an identical controller or your stuff is gone for good. This, and the fact that most integrated RAID controllers have no hardware acceleration, are common reasons why integrated RAID controllers tend to be frowned upon. I would like to be proven wrong.

But I guess to get more in-depth to your question, here's what I have set up, and what I recommend you to do:
1. Plug both of your HDDs into the white ports and use the G-RAID utility.
2. Plug your SSD into (blue) ports 0-3 and set them to AHCI.
3. If you have any optical drives, set ports 4-5 to IDE and plug them into that. While it is considerably slower, Windows in particular doesn't seem to like optical drives set to ACHI very much. Linux related discs work fine.


Depending on what is on your HDDs, you might want to ditch the onboard RAID utilities entirely. The ONLY purpose of using them is so you can boot Windows from RAID. Since your OS runs from the SSD and since you presumably aren't running linux, you don't need the built-in RAID. Ditch the on-board RAID and you can actually carry your RAID 0 setup between other systems, relatively safely.


For me personally, Windows is brutal with SSDs so I boot Windows off of my RAID 0 setup, which is why I have to use the G-RAID utility.

ok, so you don't have a SSD, that's what I understood, anyway, not relevant

your idea of HDDs attachment, is really good, I gotta try this now...

hmm, I have move my raid 0 between ports, even I moved from a Asus board with 790 chipset, that was 750 SB?? or some like that, to this board with 890FX NB, 850 SB, without loosing the raid 0, I have to say that when I did this swap, was 4 WD caviar black in raid 0

but, this doesn't mean that I can move to ports from another controller, that' why I ask..

gonna have to back up my files

I do have a SSD, I'm just not booting Windows from it. I run linux from an SSD (linux is far more SSD friendly).

If the actual RAID controller is the same, you should be able to safely switch, even if they're different chipsets. Since these are different controllers, I don't think you can safely switch.

guys is this ok? or something is wrong with my voltages? I have bump MOBO NB one notch as CPU-NB up to 1.3v, but still I get this...


and another question, MOBO bus or FSB is oscillating a little bit, not much, does it mean I have to bump MOBO NB another notch? how much is it save??
