PS I feel that the 990fxa boards would overclock much better if they allowed you to adjust the CPU voltage in smaller increments than 50mv steps.

It would be really nice detail for us owners of the previous rev's to get a update with UEFI, otherwise is like saying "we don't give a crap about our costumers"
I agree with the voltage bit aswell.

Hey folks, need some more info plz

What BIOS usually ships with new UD5s or UD3s these days?

Will I need an older AM3 cpu just to flash F9 before i can use the 8320? :S

I don't believe that the first batch of the piledriver ready boards are in the stores now.
it takes some time to sell the older ones by the retailers, and then they order new ones, and i believe that there are also enough boards by gigabyte on the shelf with not the most recent bios update.

so don't count on it that its piledriver ready.

sure enough, i thought as much, but will it POST and allow me to flash the updated BIOS or will I have to get someone to borrow me an older AM3 chip? frown.gif

if you still have that phenom 2 in your sig that will work. It doesn't have to be am3 cpu, just any cpu that the board supports.

Phenom 2 940 i currently own wont work on an am3 board, it was first gen, lacks ddr3 controller, unlike later am3 denebs that have both controllers and hence are backwards compatible
But anyway, im going to interpret this as a yes, ill need to borrow a cpu :'(

The 940's are Deneb with bad DDR3 IMC's, and won't work in a AM3 board. They only have a AM2+ pin set. The board should come with a new enough bios to flash it. If not Gigabyte has awesome service. You can do a RMA and they will flash it.

Are there any fellow GA-990FXA-UD5 users out there that have upgraded their BIOS to F10 or F11 yet? If anyone has tried one of those BIOS revisions, please post your experiences.
