would also be interested in finding more about the F9b bios, mainly what SSD's did they add support for and did they improve the performance on anything related to SSD's.

Still on the F5 bios on my UD3 because F6 and F7 seems to be a bit unstable for me.

So far with the newer bios and my Phenom II x6 1075t, I frequently get overclocking failed errors which reverts the CPU to the auto settings.

but with the F5 bios, it is completely stable (did 2 days of prime95 and it was stable)

my current overclock with the F5 bios

I had the same experience with my FX processor. With the early f6-f7 bios. I went back to F5 and was happy. I am now running F9 which seems to be a-lot like F5 in terms of stability and overclocking. F5 is still the overclocking champion thus far, then again its still summer time here, haven't really given F9 the chance at lower temps either.

Maybe i will chuck my antec 920 radiator in a bucket of ice water and do some testing. biggrin.gif

A follow up to my previous post: I managed to install the ASUS essence stx sound card in one of the vacant PCI-E X16 slots. The space got a little bit tight; The fans from one of my video cards was making contact with the sound card at first, so I had to soften up the screw on the sound card to make sure it didn't touch the video card. Aside from that, everything works perfectly. Thanks for the help.

do you have turbo core on? Turbo core will boost the voltage when it does to the higher pstate.

Finally got my rig setup and programs installed and I love my UD3!

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2494141

Edit: Anyone else having issues with the sound quality being below average? I've got the latest sound drivers but my old Asus mobo seemed to have better sound.

Thanks. Fixed my sound problems. EasyTune 6 was the culprit. >_< Uninstalled it and no more sound problems.

I have a lil concern with updating my bios. I started a bios thread for the mobo HERE so as not to litter up the bios conversations here, so if any of you guys had any insight on my issue it would be appreciated. I just don't want to re-overclock if the new bios doesn't offer me anything i need...

If you are using a phenom II

I was wondering with the 990fxa-ud3, has anyone tried running 4 memory sticks at DDR3 1600, and if so, what NB voltage and how much over stock did you need to push the memory voltages to get it stable?
