If you're wanting to get a Bulldozer CPU, you're going to have to get a 990FX board, unless your 890FX board has a black CPU socket, which it most likely doesn't.

Oh well, vdroops is present in the memory too, i have one set ADATA Low wattage and at this moment i cant adjust the default voltage.

And although the vdroop is not very high, if it is annoying not to get the desired value. Another bug I found is the USB port, they go off every few reboots. I think it's a bug in the bios and that will be repaired soon.

Beyond that, the motherboard is pretty good. F3b bios did not change anything, only solve the raid issue.

You decide. You get support for the next 3 years with the 990FXA series, and after this initial round of BD chips your board will be outdated. Not to mention, you get power saving features and probably more overclockability with the new boards.

Don't forget: The 990FX boards are also very very nice looking! Dark mobos FTW!

This is also a good reason to upgrade, the 990 FXA series has some of the best looking boards around.

I mean BIOS yes. However there is a voltage fluctuation on RAM but you can adjust it to 1.515v, I did that to maintain stability on my OCed RipJaws 6-8-6-24 1T @ 1.65v, when I set it to 1.65v the BIOS gives me 1.635v reading so I have to set it 0.015v higher than normal, so no big deal.
