UD5 FXA 990 RAM underclock
« on: August 08, 2012, 10:55:29 pm »

I own a gigabyte ud5 fxa 990 and I'm having a problem with my ram frequency. My ram is supposed to be 1600 MHz but during POST, its says that it is at 1333 MHz. When I try to increase the multiplier of to get it to 1600 MHz, the pc doesnt' boot, displaying an overclock error. Anyone can help me out please?



Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 (bios F6)
AMD Bulldozer FX-8120
Corsair Vengance 8GB 1600MHz (4GBx2)
2x XFX 6870 1GB (crossfire)
Antec 850W PSU

Hi there,

try updating your BIOS to the F9 version, using the QFlash utility and see if that helps.

I'm running this board, but with a different CPU and have had no issues with getting my RAM stable at 1600MHz with this BIOS.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
