suck3rs I have the 990fxa UD3 with a 9590. I was running it air cooled with a CM 212 EVO undervolted and turbo off. Now I have a custome water loop. Running it completely open. My only issue is that I can't OC the RAM.

here is the compatibility list from gigabyte. mine does not officially support it either, but as long as you can keep the CPU cool, the motherboard will run the CPU. if you overclock the FX8350 the CPU again, must be kept cool, you will have the same issue either way.
officially is not supported
check the link that you sent me and check ud5 and 9530/50 both are with - ( - = N/A)

both on your "defense" 1 guy told me that he tested and it did work but for some reason, the speed was 4400mhz (instead of 4700mhz) maybe because of the power.
this mother doesn't support 220w. but I didn't test it.. I am ok with the 8350

ltpdttcdft Check the BIOS version first, and if it isn't the latest update it. Features occasionally get added, don't expect too much but it's worth a try.

Case airflow needs to be higher than cooler airflow or you'll be recirculating hot air inside the case.

Does the BIOS give you LLC options? Usually Gigabyte does best with Medium LLC. Actually I think you should make sure you have the latest BIOS first. BIOS update download page for UD5 rev. 1.x:

Hi
no there is no LLC option at rev. 1.x unfortunately

I was able to reach 4350 mhz, but on bios the Vcore 1.52 , then for some reason on windows that's 1.44v , but according to CPU z most of the time is just 1.40v from time to time reached 1.44 but not more than that.

Yes I agreed that this mobo is not the best.

Cooling system for the CPU is ThermalRight TRUE 120+ 120 cooler (70 cfm air flow)... as I only have 2 (90 mm) coolers inside the case I removed the left door

cssorkinman My 990 UD5 is a brutish board ( rev 5 I believe) hardware wise but has a pretty awful bios. Gigabytes software OC utility is about the worst I've seen.


Be sure to be running the latest bios as it will give the best Vishera support.

Board shouldn't hold the chip below 4.7 ghz , cooling , power or settings will.

I made the 24/7 5 ghz club with mine pushing a FX 9370 @ 1.6 volts.
