Awesome, let me know. I have been holding off since there is no official BIOS update yet for Vishera with these Mobo's Ver 1.0.
Also, for updating the BIOS. I have been reading a lot since I am a noob when it comes to this. From my understanding it's...
1. Download BIOS update to flash drive
2. Load Optimized Defaults then Load Q-flash
3. Select BIOS from Flash drive and install
4. Then go back and set up your BIOS preferences

Does it matter if you are running in IDE or ACHI if you have your OS on your SSD? And I can run my PII 970 just fine after the BIOS update? Or do I need to install the FX chip afterwards?

Is there a way for to change what PCI-e slot is the primary? I got two water-cooled cards, and I don't want to move them if at all possible, but the display ports on the primary card are misbehaving so I want to make it my secondary card just for crossfire purposes.

ps i'm still on bios F3, but I doubt that makes a difference.

I'll have to dig out the packet, but tiny little screws from your favourite local DIY place. I guessed at the size. Original pad left on the VRMs.

Hi guys as an owner of the UD7 i am looking forward to getting my hands on one of the PD cpus either the 6300 or 8350 will see how long it takes me to save up for it i was also wondering if anyone had heard a rumour that Gigabyte are rereleasing the 990FXA boards with UEFI and would anyone be willing to replace their mobo with the new revision this is where i saw it mentioned http://www.techpowerup.com/174308/Gigabyte-Socket-AM3+-Motherboards-Get-UEFI-BIOS-Finally.html

I guess this is why the UD7 was out of at Ebuyer when I RMAed and I got the last one at scan. Hopefully Scan will get some of the updated ones, just in case this board dies on me.

Yep, put the F9 BIOS on my board last night. Not sure what all the fuss is about flashing BIOS. As long as you read what to do its not hard. Now, just waiting for my 8350. Bought mine off NEWEGG for 199.00 because I had a 10% off coupon. Would have never paid the extra 20 bucks out of principal. Amazon is selling it for 229.0. It is about the only two mainstream places I have seen have it for sale.

Just wonder if any one ever found a hardware mod for the UD3 1.0 to counter the vdrop.

Just finished finding max oc on the F9 bios and its another let down.
How can gigabyte keep releasing bioses that make it worse.

F5 = Set voltage and it stayed at the but had the APM bug.
F6C = 0.05V drop (5ghz stable)
F9E = 0.1V drop (4.7ghz stable)
F9 = 0.15V drop.(4.4ghz stable)

And to confirm its not chip degradation I stuck F6c back on it any im priming at 5ghz right now no problem where I couldnt even boot at 4.5ghz on F9

Am I to understand that the UD3 (rev 1.0) definitely does support the FX8350 ?
I have already ordered - and paid for the CPU so if it does not I have problems as I have already "donated" the 965 that was on it to my daughter .
