Same, waiting for a quite awhile to see if they are actually major improvements. As I went 990FX thinking BD would at least be better than Phenom II chips. redface.gif

I currently updated my bios to f10b from f7 and I run the windows experience index then my processor and memory scores went down..Is it ok because of BD or what? Im currently using 1090T. any suggestions..or did gigabyte design it because of BD?

don't base anything on your WEI (windows experiance score) for starters. Anyways the Amd 990 chipset/platform was designed for Bulldozer and future Am3+ cpus. Thuban or your 1090t is a am3 cpu, its chipset was the 800 series/700 series chipsets. Overall the 900 series chipsets are meant for bulldozer and future cpus, but are backwards compatible with am3 cpus.

I finally decided to to stop gaming and get busy with dealing with the ram. Finally got all the 12gb of RAM to show. I had to go through about 15 of 16 combinations testing each by themselves and pairing them together and mixed and finally installing both hyper x modules in dimms closest to the cpu socket ie. slot DDR3_4 and DDR3_2 and the OCZ's in the other two slots. I could have swore that they should have been alternated but I am not sure why its like this. The retarded thing is it doesnt work with both OCZ's in DDR3_4 and DDR3_2 and the hyperX in the other 2

The vertex 4 will be faster in writes especially since it has the sandforce controller which gives the best performance but was unreliable and you may need to update firmware. I like the M4 because its a great allrounder. I think the access times are faster on the M4 and the boot times as a result are usually faster. I chose the M4 reliability, access times which is what you will experience most of the time when opening programs. You dont want to do too many writes on the SSD anyways and READS are whats most important since thats what you will do most of the time.

the vertex 4 uses an indilinx controller now, they have gone off the sandforce chips.

My RMA has been completed, unfortunately the UD7 has now been discontinued so Ebuyer will not be getting any more in, I have had to get a refund and spend another £40 get one from Scan but the good news is I will have it tomorrow.
