Is there a OCing and set up guide for GA-MA790GPT-UD3H
« on: November 14, 2009, 12:48:12 am »
Just got the set up. This is also my first post here.

Here is my gear in case anyone has questions

AMD 720BE Phenom II Tri core
GA-MA790GPT-UD3H
Pc Power and Cooling 510Deluxe
EVGA  GeForce GTX 275 1792MB
Dual Sata Hdd's Raid 0
mem is G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Windows 7 will be the install


Cooling is Water cooling on the CPU and air on the GPU.


This has been my first PC build in a few years. last machine I built myself was an Opteron based Socket 939 Dual core. It recently died after several years in service so here I am. I havent kept up with the Ocing or building scene in a while but would love to get back to it. on this set up is there any tips tricks or trades. Bios that would be best? I keep hearing it may be possible to unlock the 4th core in my CPU? maybe there is a guide written using this board thats been done someone could recommend.

Id appreciate and info anyone has. Thanks much!!

Thanks PottyPete for the info. i will look there. So far I have this set up running in stock config and I must say I like it alot. What kind of temps do the PE II 720 BE run at on air for a normal range?
