1100 AMD GA MA790xt-Ud4p

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi aLl,
I had asked if anybody had tried this and really didn;t receive much response, other than xd 1771, BTW thanks for the input there xd. So I figure that thread was to find out if there were any issues or problems. This post is to show the results of that upgrade. First the F8G Beta bios has been stable and I have had no problems with any of the settings. I ran the machine through a full hour of multiple benches with the stock cooler at the stock clock (3.3ghz) and it ran at the same
3Dmark06 that my 955 ran at 3.6 ghz, 0.4ghz oc'd. I didn't see a significant difference in the scores when I switched from Kingston Hyperx to G-Skill 12800. I believe that has more to do with my not playing with RAM timiins yet. What I can say is that with the stock cooler I was able to hit 18000+ on 3dmark06 by using the multiplier to oc the 1100 to 3.9ghz on air, with temps in the low 40s. the system is stable and I have yet to flash the 5850 to 850 core and 1200 GPU ram. I also will be playing with the RAM timings and see how far I can push this system. My plan is to run this MOBO and processor until the AM3+ boards come out then upgrading the board in anticipation of eventually going to BD.

My current assessment of putting am 1100BE in the Gigabyte GA MA790XT-UD4P board is if you have the money do it. This processor rocks in this board. Per the Gigabyte site and many knowledgable folks round these parts MAKE SURE TO FLASH your BIOS to F8F or above BEFORE you plug the 1100 in. As stated I was able to attain the same bench with no cpu oc that I was getting with the 955 oc'd as far as I dared to take it in air. BTW my temps were in the low 50's with the 955 at 3.6ghz and the stock cooler. This upgrade gets a hardy OH YEAH!!!!!! from me. The specs for this system are in my sig system.
Thanks again and have fun!

3.9Ghz on stock cooling? I don't usually see people getting that far on stock cooling! That's nice! You could probably overclock 5850 manually to those levels rather than flashing, it might actually be safer. Flashing to the latest BIOS before putting the x6 in (if you can) is very important indeed.

Hi xd1771,

Yeah I was really pleasantly surprised at the temps at that oc. It ran an hour at that speed. I will do some more extensive tweaking and evaluating this weekend. I have afterburner setup for the 850/1200 pgu clocks but as soon as 3DMark starts the gpu chages back to its default setup. I think I will look at this some more.

What are you considering an hour of loading for those temperatures? A suite of different tests with pauses might not keep the cpu at 100% load for the full hour like a program like prime would.

Hi All,
Well i don;t know if I was lied to on the first day but yesterday I ram prime and got about 10minutes before I got my 60C warning. So I backed up to 3.8GHZ and got about 20 minutes before the cpu temp warning in Prime 95. I am running at 3.8ghz and it is stable but I see an H-50 or 212 in my very near future. Still all in all this was a solid upgrade and I am hitting 1500 in Heaven uni-engine benches on DX10. I think that is pretty good for a 790X chipset and a 5850. Anyway Rinchard it appears you were right in that prime95 ran the heat up alot more than the other benching tools. Still all in all I am happy with it.
Thanks all and have fun.

Definitely, you'll be able to go far with a good cooler on this board (I predict no less than 4Ghz CPU, 3Ghz NB)

HI All, and xd,
Yup 212 on its way. Will see how it does with it mounted.
Thanks All

Hi All,

Well I put hte Hyper 212 Plus on and I am solid for an hour of Prime at 4 GHZ with an HT clock of 2400. CPU core v is at 1.425 and temps are stable with a high on 45 celcius. 3DMark 06 at 20150, Uniengine Heaven on DX-10 at 1600, 805 on DX-11. This was a solid upgrade. My 5850 is running at 848 core and 1200 mem, its temps are at 105 f.
Happy with it.... have fun.
