cheers chap i'll try the changes u suggested. ive already set my ram timings so its running at 1600 but it did get defaulted to 1066 at first. again! i thought this would'nt happen as the fx cpu's memory controller supports upto 1800. oh and xmp is an intel thing another thing i learned off u lot

thanks for ur help yet again lol. seven forums ftw. ive learned sooo much ere
this cpu has proppa pickled me tho lol. ive come real close to takin it bk out but i like the temps it runs at and ive read some ok things about it. as for temps, according to the core temp forums all amd chips since the athlon have an offset in core temp by 10 to 15c. strange that as this is the only one ive had an issue with and the offset turned out to be 12c. core temp also changed its mind on what the cpu is called. i cant remember what its first name was but now its processor BE :O
right i'll go try those settings. thanks again

That board was never designed for AM3+ and all Gigabyte (and all the other board manufacturers) was change the socket from AM3 (white) to AM3+ (black and different pin config), and add bios support for AM3+. Also as far as I know the AM3+ CPU's use/have a slightly different power requirement/usage that isn't available on the 8xx based boards unless the changed the power circuitry as well.

All things considering if you want to run an AM3+ CPU it would be better to get any of the 970 or 990 based boards that have proper support all around.

lol that was quick
u found the same thread i did. thats where i found that disabling the turbo core control in amd overdrive stops it bouncing about. in htat thread tho they said disable it all. i guess different boards/bios's are all gonna get different results enit. ive informed gigabyte support abou the settings nit makin the changes they should.
i'll have a fiddle and another read n see what happens.
cheers

edit: has anyone here used any of the windows7 patches and hotfixes for the fx cpu's?
they r something to do with windows 7's architechture not using the cores properly which was noticed during the building of win8.

Nope I did all the Bios upgrading when i was running my 965BE
All i had to do was drop it in and work the settings and i am using a 990fx chipset that was pretty much made for this chip

i would have thought my board would be sound with this cpu as it was one of the first line of 16 black socket boards from gigabyte built for the bulldozer. mines the 880g chipset tho
as for load line calibration i dont have an option for this in the bios.

Not surprised as I said above, the 8xx/AM3 based boards were never designed for Bulldozer. The support was only added after the fact, and they don't have the upgraded power circuitry required for Bulldozer.

yeah thats the board. how can they sell a motherboard that they say is for the bulldozer when it isnt? it was the only reason i bought it

That's why i got the Higher end one I knew in the long run it was a better choice and the Proof is in the pudding the best boards for these chips are the 970 990fx models and they are also better overclockers

Well maybe Gigabyte will give you the option to upgrade to a better board I mean it is there screw up to produce such a crappy board just because

I would contact them and have them upgrade your board im sure they can for a little more cost but i would let them know there is no satrisfaction and would like your money back hopefully they can do something

I would go as far as to tell them why keep such a product available if it doesn't work correctly

Gigabyte aren't the only ones that did it; Asus, MSI, etc all did the same thing. Likely reason being it was a quick and easy (some might say dirty) way to get rid of extra stock of the older chipsets.

ello again. yup i think thats gotta be the plan. it's p****ed me right off. the motherboard is only about 9 months old tops so do u think i should contact gigabyte of the seller?
