I just built myself a new PC based on the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 and AMD FX-9590 chip.

Before I could even think about overclocking, I started getting total system freeze issues.

After a lot of troubleshooting, I found that I can avoid the freeze issues by disabling all the C-State options in the BIOS.

After I found this out I had a chat with Gigabyte Tech Support and was told that basically the AMD CPU is not performing the C-State changes to specification. This would suggest all FX-9590 chips will have this issue.

Just wanted to get this out there in case anybody else has a similar issue.

I'm just curious. What's the BIOS version on your board?


Thanks for the heads-up on the FX-9590 chip.

The Revision 3.0 board came with the latest BIOS, 'FC'.
