Fingers crossed I won't have those issues again with the ud5... Those of you with problems getting in bios, wonder if it has anything to do with the video connection? I'm using hdmi to 1080p connection, curious if an adapter to use dvi would change anything.

I tried using a DVI to HDMI connector and that did not help. Also when I have my 7970 installed the splash screen is way too big, but with the 670 it is normal sized. Still cannot get into the bios, I have tried hitting delete only once after I see the splash screen and that didn't work. Also tried just holding down delete and that just goes to a black screen. I just can't understand why a graphics cards made by the same manufacturer as the board would have an issue like this.

It seems your video card is malfunction. Can you disable the boot message from the video card or disable the splash screen of the mainboard and enable the post message? Did you tried your video card with another mainboard?

The card runs fine in windows and works fine in my other rig, the one listed in my sig. I would have to switch cards in order to even get in the bios to disable that stuff. I have 4 7970's and they all do the same thing when I try to get into the bios. The nvidia 670 card will go right in the bios every time with no issue.

Did you tried to disable pxe boot rom and minimize roms to load when the bios boot? Sometimes there isn't enough ram left. Usually the ram is limited to very tiny amount, less then a 1 megabyte for option roms. This is what I know with the older BIOS. In the new UEFI it may not so limited. However I wonder how 4 video cards can work anyway? But it seems there is a malfunction in the bios from the video card. From wikipedia: other ROMs can be located from segments C8000 all the way up to E0000. It's only about 120-131 kbytes??
Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Option_ROM
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The cause of the problem is that in order to be PC compatible, which is limited to read-only memory to 128th This is true for any motherboard with PC compatible BIOS.

In the common configurations, a newer AGP card (such as a Geforce 4) will require 64K ROM, so that you only left 64K option ROM space to work with. Many SCSI, NIC with PXE IDE RAID can so easily another 40-64K of option ROM space.

By design, the option ROM should shrink to a smaller run time code after the initialization code has been executed. For example, some Adaptec cards will require 32K to initialize. Then shrink to 12K at run time, while some GeForce 4 cards require 64K to initialize and never let go. Please check with the device manufacturer for the latest firmware upgrade or ask if they have made ​​available a smaller Option ROM. Again, this is a limitation of the PC compatible specification and not a failure of the motherboard BIOS.

From: http://www.tyan.com/archive/support/html/f_s2466.html

The bios from my hd 6950 is 64 kbyte I think it shrink to less kbyte because I also have a crossfire but I have disabled pxe rom and raid rom option.

Shot in the dark here, but what do you have connected on the back? Perhaps unplug everything except a keyboard and video. I might suspect my wireless adapter could have been causing problems too. Won't be able to troubleshoot till my ud5 gets delivered later today.

I use 2 displays 1 HDMI and 1 DVI and get in fine, I also got in fine when it was just HDMI.

Interesting... My ud5 should be in any minute now so I'll be able to work on any issues today. One big difference now as opposed to when I had the ud3 with all the issues, I now have a second 660ti in sli, doubt that will make any difference. Just really hoping the ud5 works perfectly. I have had terrible luck with these boards except the sabertooth so far. Sending the msi back today.

I tried with just the HDMI, PS2 keyboard, and ethernet. Still nothing. I even tried it with the DVI to HDMI adapter.

Well this doesn't help, but I got the ud5 installed. Can enter bios with zero issues. Nothing like the ud3 was...
