    Default 990FXA-UD3 R4 Revision differences

    I'm just curious, does anyone know the changes between the recently released revision 4.1 and 4.0? The only visible difference I notice are the Chemicon caps for audio filtering however a Rev. 4.0 board I just purchased for my HTPC also uses these caps instead of the regular solid type. The Gigabyte website comparison feature doesn't reveal anything either however I have noticed a new bios version that has been released - could it be that this is the only difference?

    I don't typically like buying into "revisions" of motherboards. It's seems more of a marketing tactic than anything, often times just a misleading way of saying "hey we made the board better..... BUT it took us 5 tries now"

    The Asus Sabortooth I believe has 3 revisions. Turns out Rev 1.0 had a cold bug issue (my experience with it) Rev 2.0 is great and hey!!, where did rev. 3.0 go? They only seem to sell rev 2.0.

    So it may take a little research looking for problems with previous revisions that gigabyte may have tweaked the board be it bios or actual hardware.

    That's my take on motherboard revisions.

    You probably right, it seams that this is the only difference between those two boards (4.1 use high quality Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors).

    The first revisions of this board would not handle an FX-9590, 220W-CPU without having a meltdown. Starting at revision 3, they did. (mine is a revision 3)
    I think that they're tweaking the power handling capabilities on each new revision and tossing in other improvements as they go.

    My revision 3 runs perfectly.

    Considering the 4.0 board I have uses the same Chemi-Con caps and the specs between the two are exactly the same, I'm guessing Gigabyte may have intended the capacitor replacement to be a minor update not necessitating the need for a new revision. Later down the track, perhaps due to marketing, they decided to make all boards with the new caps as revision 4.1. That's my take on this at least.

    Hi Bill,

    Mine is the REV-4.0 board. I won the FX-9590 CPU, AIO Cooler, and Motherboard from AMD in a contest.

    I'm sure that they included this board because they knew that it could support the CPU (220W) as long as the temps were controlled with the AIO cooler.

    The benefits to having the latest revision are better sound circuitry and guaranteed support for the FX-9590 CPU.
    I'm sure that the 3.0 board does not support the FX-9590. The 4.0 and 4.1 versions do support the FX-9590 CPU.

    Neil we are running the same exact setup and Im not at home but Im pretty sure Im probably running rev 4 Ill check it out when I get to the house,LOL been away from the house for almost 2 weeks need to get back there and see if I got anything left LOL my neighbors aren't the best or at least some of them are a little questionable!! Been in and out of the hospital and got a little gun shy to be their alone due to a recent medical event had me spooked! That's embarresing! How are you doing as far as some ocing doing any of that or you running it stock? I considered trying some but Ive come to the conclusion my CM Stacker 830 isn't the ideal case due to the location of the power supply it doesn't cool well it air flow is restricted because the power supply is above the motherboard and cant exhaust out the top well! So it gets a little warmer than Im comfortable with! Im thinking going maybe with the Phantek Enthoo Luxe Full tower! Seeing how we run the same board and CPU just curious how yours is running! Good talkn to you haven't been online so its nice to get back here a little!

    Bill,

    Good to see you back. You should never be embarrassed about your health issues. At our age, we don't have a lot of control over what our bodies decide to do.

    Some people go through life with no issues to speak of before they pass. Others seem to have an uphill battle just to get to next month. We all deal with the hand that God deals us, and we try to keep as much dignity as we can while doing so.


    So far I have the OC set to +200MHz because it's already running very high speeds at stock. It being a 220W CPU, I don't want to tempt fate and kill it with too much heat.
    Some CPU's develop a little heat when you bump up their clock speeds. Others get a lot hotter when you bump speeds up a little. The 220W power usage of this CPU makes for higher temps at stock speeds, and those temps really soar when you start to overclock them. With the eight cores and high clocks, this one doesn't need a giant overclock as far as I see it. It's running fine like it is.
    The water cooling unit that they gave me with it is made by Cooler Master and it's effective. All I did was change the fans over to ones that match my case fans. (Cougar Vortex PWM)
    Cougar makes some very fine fans.

    There are two Cougar 140mm Vortex fans in the front of the case,....another 140mm Cougar Vortex fan on the top,....and two 120mm cougar Vortex fans on the AIO cooler in a Push/Pull configuration.

    My case is a cheap Corsair Carbide Spec-03. For an inexpensive case, it was a pleasure to build in. Airflow is great with the upgraded fans in it.

    You push and pull configuraton on the cooler is push from outside and pull from inside am I right? The Cooler Master stacker case I have has one flaw that is a little annoying to me because the power supply sits above the board at the top so it limits the air flow moving out the top of the case so I can only use one fan on top and it also sits closer toward the front of the case therefore it feels like the air backs up and centers over the CPU and motherboard in the middle of the case! Quite noticeable! Also the bottom inside of the case has some air coming in from opening but the opening is the size of a 92 mm fan instead of 120 or a 140! So Im limited by both of them flaws and not will to OC yet for the apparent heat issues of the case design! Im thinking on changing cases to something like the Phantek Enthoo Luxe Full tower of maybe the CoolerMaster Stryker or Trooper! What setting did you use to achieve the 200 MHz OC out of curiousity! Im considering trying some OC but not at the exspence of smoking my Rig its stock speed is by itself is sufficient Ill just add a faster SSD and some more ram and that would be helpful! I been looking at the Hyper X Predator and it is totally impressive just to see the reviews on it Unbelivable!! Neil its a big toy to me that Im proud and thankfull for, and my thanks go out to a lot of people here for their generosity! So I figure to make it my best to show my pride!

    Thanks for your concern and kind words in re: to my health issue,s they by far are getting more aggressive and sometimes it just gets me down because my energy level and ability to focus holds me back from posting so I wont sound foolish on here! It has ramped up and right mow I need the right docters to step in and give me a hand up to this point some of them have been very reckless with my life and well being hopefully that will change soon?????? I don't know if I have told anyone online or here! But a little while back I was informed that I had 6 aneurisms in my abdomen and a couple other places one by my heart but also was told it wasn't imperative or a threat at that time, Well that ended up being bad advice on the 5th of this month I had an emergency situation at my home and of course I was there by myself and a aneurism ruptural on the renal artery going to my kidney and my friend it was a little terrifying it felt like my back had gas poored on it and I had blood flooding the inside of my abdomen and a limited time to be at the hospital or Die! I drove to the hosp down the street and they sent me to the Main hosp where I live done emergency operation found it and put a clip or stint in and luckyily was saved! When I woke up the Docter said that I was very lucky to be Alive and I believe that! Now LOL I have one in the area of my heart that needs attention its on the Aorta artery and if I don't fix it, It being the largest Artery in my body and the location in a section between a fold of my heart I will most likely die! So that self explanatory so they are considering surgery so I waiting on the CALL to decide! As my docter said Friday last week that one puts me in immeadiate danger and is a very huge threat!!! So if I get quite and inactive you will know somethings going on!! OK now that I have bored everyone How are you and your family doing good I hope and I notice Sandy just seeing a couple comments is having some issues I hope everyone is doing fine and for whatever is going o tell Sandy I was asking about him! Meanwhile What do you think about those cases I mentioned above which would you choose to keep the 9590 COOL!!!
    Thanks for letting me bore you and everyone that reads this! Bill

    I like the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe full tower case for its airflow and looks.
    The little Corsair Carbide Spec-3 does a good job for me too. Those Cougar Vortex PWM fans move a lot of air around.
    Most people don't like how they look, but the way that they work makes them beautiful to me,.....LOL!

    My push/pull configuration is push air from the inside and pull air to the outside. The inside air is exhausted out of the case.

    I have a formula that I always use with my fans.
    Any fan on the front, bottom, or sides is ~only~ pulling air into the case.
    Any fan on the rear or top is ~only~ blowing air out of the case.
    This creates a good flow of air.

    The OC I did by bumping the multiplier a little. No voltage tweaks at all.

    As far as health issues, I have had some, but you're dancing on the ice man!
    I hope that you get this taken care of soon so you can relax a little.

    Well I like it that you

    As far as health issues, I have had some, but you're dancing on the ice man!
    I hope that you get this taken care of soon so you can relax a little.
    I kinda figured you liked the Phantek it is a remarkale case and just damn sexy and has some good options and functional add ons that some don't! The Corsair Carbide is also a good choice! Hell I look at them all!
    As far as the push pull conf I went by the cooler that comes with the kit for the 9590 ! But every since I used their Push/ pull configuration I just felt rigt the that it wasn't the right setup so all this time Ive ben meaning to change it now that I talked to you I know that it was the right thing to do, besides my case design causes it to pile up the heat in the center of the case with no good way to move it out so when I finally get back home it is the first thing Im going to do! The good thing is my case has a removable MB tray so it all slides out easy access then! Maybe Ill sell that gargoyle case and use that to help pay for it! Also I have a 1000 watt BeQuiet!! It would be a good start for the build and in the Box NEW!

    BeQuiet! makes some good gear. What are you using for GPUs? You may want to stick with the 850W if you're not going with multiple cards.

    I could do that as far as the Power supply I have the 850 in my main rig now! Building another one is just a thought! Im going to change the case on my main rig mainly because of the cooling I think the phantek most certainly would be much better on the cooling and offer me an option of having 2 coolers one for the CPU and on for the Asus video card as well so I will work on that first ! That Gargoyle case is nice and was ok at the time but honestly the paint scheme never has been one I would have chose to pick but I won it and like I said the PS mounting above the motherboard at the top of the case just interfere,s with my air flow! I might just Mod that case Ive seen some modded and got some idea,s that would make it look very unigue and with the color of paint changed to a solid color it would be better on the eyes! OR I have a couple of friends that are younger that like the Gargoyle look might just sell it to them! Eitherway after swapping out the parts on the 9590 to the Phantek get better cooling and a much sexier and functional case! Then Ill go for another build when I win the lottery! I have a few parts so starting a new build I have enough still in the boxes it would give me a head start on one! LOL Neil it will give me something to do except thinking about my health issues and that's a good thing ! If you are like me you always want another Rig or another video card always the next best thing ! Nice to see your Rig turned out very nice!! Im glad also that for the time being Im able to get in here and hang out with all my friends very enjoyable and fun to see what everyone is doing! Thanks for your time! Bill
