Hello i have the gigabyte GA970A-UD3 with an FX 6300 processor. I am a noob with PCs but wanted to update bios, because from what i heard updating is good So i updated to F7 and the update description says " Update CPU AGESA 188.8.131.52" . What exactly is this ? Something with the CPU but what? I have a major problem with my new computer ' it shuts down randomly. Maybe this update would fix it? Could be something with the AMD FX 6300 combined with this motherboard? I dont know , im just asking . im a noob !
This means the bios update will update CPU agesa 184.108.40.206. Try resetting the bios settings and booting again. If the crashes continue there might be a problem with your ram cards.
Please provide more information about your ram if the problem is not fixed.
i have 2 x 4GB corsair vengeance 1600 mhz ! i have 4 slots in my motherboard, and put them in the same color ! if thats what you were afraid of ! We did RAM tests on LINUX for 4 hours and they seemed ok
I have done the part with the battery removal and nothing !
BTW the PC Shut down before i install the latest BIOS version F7. So i will test it now with the latest version ! Maybe you thought it shuts down with the version i installed !
i put the recommended BIOS settings for RAM in my motherboard and it appears to work now.. i think there was a conflict between my motherboard and the RAMs .
One should contact his motherboard manufacter to ask for the BIOS settings !!
On some motherboards the ram cards are to match the fsb speeds. To do this they lower the frequency of the ram cards along with the timings so it is better you leave it like this. You'll hardly experience any speed improvements because after you set them to the ram card specified settings. If you are really want to increase speeds decrease the timings.
It is better to match the ram frequency and the fab speed.
