i hbave a amd fx 8350 cpu on its way. I just want to know what steps to make it run right once it comes. Whcih bios is better to use 3027 or 3029? I have tried searching for modded ones with no luck. In my bios can anyone guide me on what to enable and disable.

Now from the few bits i have gathered this is what i think i need to do. Flash one of those bios's whilst on the current cpu. Then change voltage i think to 1.3 then install new cpu apply thermal paste etc and boot up right. I have tried looking for a full guide but no luck. cooling wise i havent got an issue. If anyone can guide me id appreciate it thanks.

Ceadderman It's because of the updated BIOS lacking the safety features originally intended for the Phenoms. I fully suspect that the NB heatsink also needs to be addressed to bring the Temps down. Lack of optimal contact is allowing the NB chip to run over the maximum temp range. You can check that temp setting in BIOS, it should be no higher than 65c. If it is I think you can set the temp max to 65c. But since I never had to I am not entirely certain of that. mellowsmiley.gif

dexis Thank you @Ceadderman. The fact i can't understand is why, with my Phenom II 965, all were working fine. The overheating problem appeared on GPU after the FX-6300 upgrade.

PD. Last time that Windows 10 booted, GPU-Z was showing 103ºC on GPU @ ~1.20v

PD2. CPU/NB ran @ 70ºC easily while I was in BIOS. The heating problem with the GPU is happening while you stay in BIOS too.

Ceadderman Stock NB/SB heatsink? Likely need to do the standoff modification to close the gap between chipset and heatsink. CIVFormula was shipped with incorrect NB standoffs. Think of the issue like an Intel chip needing a deli to keep the Temps under control. Only on a mb. I'm actually quite shocked that your board is not shutting down when your NB hits 65c, the way it should be. But that could be directly due to the updated BIOS lacking the proper safety measures. I would contact ASUS and have them look over that BIOS and check to see where that issue occured. NB chips with proper cooling should go no further than 60c. I changed out with an EK chips block and mine goes no higher than 55c.

So if you're running stock cooling I would do the standoff mod. Change the SB standoffs to the NB an keep an eye on temps. If it lowers sand down the female side to match the ones swapped to NB. Reset the standoffs and mod is done. thumb.gif

dexis I've just upgraded my cpu. Phenom II 965 to FX-6300 (BIOS v.3029).

Well, after this upgrade my GPU is overheating and losing the signal video after a few minutes. It's happening during BIOS config and after/during Windows 10 boot. Fans are at 100%. (ASUS EAH5870 1GB).

I'm not sure what parameter of BIOS is causing this. I have tried it with default BIOS cfg too.

PD. My NB temp is over 75ºC in idle.

Ceadderman Two 8gb sticks work well. I have a pair of 1600 Dominator I ran in.mine without much issue. Though I did have to activate the Go!Button to get the board to POST because 8gb sticks did not exist prior to the CIVFormula QVL iirc. thumb.gif

You won't be able to run more as the board will be maxed out for memory. tongue.gif

Wbroach23 Hey will the crosshair IV run two 8gb sticks of RAM or do I need to run 4 4gb sticks? It's my old build now but I need to get it a little better so my cousin can use it till we build him a newer one.
