Saw it in a pretty big forum (won't say the name, since it could be considered as advertising, all I can say is that they're 1 place behind overclock.net in the F@H team ranking) and I'm pretty sure its legit.
I see. I've not seen any official things or anything saying the new revised boards don't still have the Vdroop. You're welcome to post links to other forums or say their names, that's fine. Overclockers.com I'm guessing? If so, links would be nice!

Yeah, overclockers.com.

hey guys, didn't mean to off-topic your vdroop issue but i was just wondering if anyone else's ud3 northbridge heatsink get crazy hot. If i try to touch it it burns my finger something fierce. I just got mine and was wondering if this was normal. 'system' temp in easy tune is ~34c. is that the temp of the northbridge? i don't see any other temps. any insight would be great. thanks

edit:
oh yeah i forgot...... this is without having anything running (benchmark, etc) everything is stock voltage wise. no overclock or nothing. case has decent airflow. my cpu phenom x2 555 idles at 29, load at ~42

Yep, this has been discussed in earlier posts. Mine was so hot it caused my tuner card to stop working until moved to a lower slot. XD_1771 mentioned "On most Gigabyte boards, TMPIN0 is the northbridge/chipset temp and TMPIN2 is the VRM temp." Do a Google search for 990FXA-UD3 NorthBridge Hot.

I just updated to F9A, and now I'm getting the damn "Loading Operating System" problem.

I'm reverting it to F8, and hoping that it will fix the issue, if not, I'll go back even further. I flashed my BIOS because it was at F3, which was pretty long ago.

Gigabyte really needs to fix this issue. I think we should all go on Newegg, and leave a review complaining about this issue, the Gigabyte support groups frequent them, and may just go ahead and get something done about it.

I think it's because the new BIOS only works for Bulldozer.

Yes kzone75 you're probably right. I saw someone saying the exact same thing on the Gigabyte forums.

Pretty dumb move from Gigabyte's side if he is right.
A BIOS that will totally kill all backwards compatibility, that's just fantastic....

Well...That's helpful.

Why the hell would they do that? Jeez, sometimes I wonder what the hell these companies are thinking...

It's as simple as putting this next to the download link:
WARNING: Only compatible with Bulldozer processors. Other processors, do not flash.

Solution if Q-Flash isn't working for you (saying its an unrecognized BIOS version or w.e) -
"You can force the Backup BIOS to kick in by shutting down the PSU from the wall, then hold down your case power button in and then turn on the power supply button, a few seconds later the board will start, shut off the power supply then. Then you can turn on the power supply again and power up the board normally and DualBIOS will kick in."
