I was looking for GA-X58A-UD3R for overlocking. I found this one, but its "ErP ready" not "Ultra Durable 3" like most of them.





Is there going to be a big difference when overlocking?

You can see the heatisnk at bridge is different

Do you own it yet? Are those your photos?

 

I think the previous owner replaced the northbridge's heatsink for some reason. I mean, why is it a standard style heatsink and why is it crooked? Y'know?

 

I think they are all "Ultra Durable 3", but some just don't have that printed on them. Like, here's the product page for the same motherboard (Rev 2.0): http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3449

 

Notice that the only place you see "Ultra Durable" is on that one heatsink, and it's really just a decorative metal plate (or, at least I think it's decorative... that's the impression I got from my EP45-UD3P). It's still Ultra Durable 3 though.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I will get that mobo tomorrow or day after tomorrow and report back here. I want to reach 4.2+ stable with xeon x5675 i guess replacing these heatsinks for something better will be nessecary. Do you know what heatsinks will work best for it?

I don't have that kind of knowledge. I'm sorry man.

 

4.2 GHz+ is very ambitious. Are you prepared with the proper CPU cooling and also a power supply that is very high-end (known for providing extremely stable and accurate power)?

I have the earlier version r1 It is still going strong after six years + I just built this new PC so the Gigabyte is on hold till I get another PSU. I know the board likes a good PSU. I started out with a crap PSU with it and had all the random freeze and BSOD's on occasion till I got the x750 for it.

I can't help with the OC'n with it since I ran my i7 920 D0 2.66ghz at 3.2ghz for years near 24/7. I would take it apart now and then to replace the TIM but other then that it still works fine.

I am not sure about that heatsink but I am sure it was replaced by someone. Many noted that the factory sink did not dissipate heat very well. Take the time to get a fan for it if need be. Most the time users would just remove the tin plate off the top to allow the open fins

That's normal for any system with any motherboard. It's due to the difference in the quality of the power being delivered to the computer.

Ive got a 550W cft-560-a12 chieftec PSU. Can you tell me whats "TIM" that you talk about?

Yeah, you will have trouble reaching even 4.0 GHz. That's a low quality PSU. :/ You need a PSU that can deliver power that's far more stable and accurate than what that PSU delivers.

 

TIM means Thermal Interface Material. It's thermal paste/grease/compound.

Yes.. I used to read phadruas post on PSU and after that I just began asking what a real good PSU was, and majority said the Seasonic XSeries was near to top for all PSU builds. It is tough to explain to some but after i build my system in 2010 I learned the meaning of just getting a OK PSU versing a good reliable that can take future upgrades.

I am using the X750 Gold in this new system for now and never thought i would go over 6 years before replacing it. I try every 3 or 4 years top. I am just luck I was able to keep my PC after all the downside of life had put on my family.

I only wish my sons would learn to build them. They know how to game 24/7 but they have no clue how to install a op system much less how to diagnose issues. In short I told them "I hope you make a lot of money because you will have to pay someone to fix it when I'm gone.

I do enjoy working on some problems but gee it is like all the games and op systems and other programs are/have changed and nothing works quite right. Old stuff can't work with this newer gear. like my external PATA DVD burner that still looks like it came out of the box new.

So yes somethings are not backwards compatible but i can still use it on these notebooks and other older systems.

I do like the USB 3.0 speed and hope to get something USB 3.1 that should be way faster.

Cheers!

Computers need stable and accurate voltage currents in order to stay stable, especially when overclocking. So if your PSU has high ripple and poor voltage regulation, then you can expect a bunch of inexplicable problems. It gets worse when overclocking. If the PSU is low enough in quality, then you could end up killing the PSU which could easily kill the computer right along with it.
