my old GA-790FXTA UD5 broke and took my PII 965 with it so i got a new PII X6 1090T and a new mainboard.
I did by the 990FXA UD3 because my mosfet and nortbridge watercoolers are known to fit.
I did not use it and could still return it.
I plan on overclocking the 1090T but reading this thread (not entirely yet thats why i ask) made me rethink.
My watercoolers seem to fit the UD5 too, maybe someone already knows it or could check if the mounting holes are the same for UD3 and UD5.
So i'd like to know which board is better to use with the 1090T and which bios version seems to be best.
I didn't rebuy my 790FXTA because in germany it costs more than the 990FXA UD7 and spending this much on such an old lady seems kind of idiotic.
My 965 ran on 3,9ghz under load and i hope the same for my new 1090T or hitting even 4.0ghz with disabled turbo and reasonable vcore. i dont want to "ruin" it with a bad mainboard if the cpu itself is capable...
btw. my UD3 is rev. 1.2Edited by DrProctor - 5/22/12 at 1:28pm
