Not really sure. I mostly use the multiplier when overclocking. I do reach a stable 4.0GHz with stock voltage. If I go WAY above 4GHz I start playing with FSB. But for now I keep it around 4.0-4.1. Dang summer.. Room temps are at 27C right now. And I have some crappy TIM so the temps go a little too high for my liking. I did hit 60C with 4.4GHz..
As a reference I can add that 4.2GHz on my 770TA-UD3 needed 1.472V http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1672364 , 4.5 needed 1.552V http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1683690 and that was during very cold winter. Hopefully they delay BD again so I can play around with my 965BE a little more. Well, maybe not. Am planning on putting the CPU in mineral oil or something later this fall..

Yep, I am still very happy with this motherboard.

I'm debating whether to get the UD3 or UD5. I'm sick of buying budget boards. I need something that can really expand my options and allow for some ACTUAL ocing. I hate my boards 4+1 power phase :\\

And I do plan on doing 2 way sli with additional card(s) for folding
Its horrible...... on the ud5 at least.

Wish they would fix it have to run 1.62v to my cpu at idle for stability while loaded...
Other than that a very solid board imo.

Just ordered a 990FXA-UD3! Should be here Wednesday or Thursday

Now if they could only reduce the vdrop.
If it behaves differently with BD, then fine.

Im starting to mess with my FSB now from boredom and also using AMD Overdrive to do it within windows cause to lazy for constant bios changing, but what im concerned have you used AMD OverDrive before if so are those temperatures displayed correct? Mine seem way to high. I believe 62c is the max temp by AMD and they easily get up to 60-61c when i do a stability test in the same program, now usualy ill use HW Monitor which shows what i believe are the real temps maxing at 50c while running the test, any ideas which program shows real results?

Edit* After viewing HW Monitor and AMD OverDrive it seems OD is displaying exactly the same temperatures in HWMonitor under - Temperatures: TMPIN2, correct me if in wrong but isnt that the Southbridge temp (or north) not the actual CPU itself?

Wow this motherboard still supprises me. Maybe its the chipset or the power phases, but compaired to my old one which was an nForce 750a chipset this thing lets me OC like crazy. 8+1 to 8+2 and that making my old board that used a 4pin for cpu power to now using the 8pin to power it is probably why.

So far running at 3.8GHz on stock voltage, my other board i had to up to 1.45v just to run it at that rate, and 1.55 for 4GHz, this is going to be a fun night time to see how far i can really push this CPU while never hitting over 60c

Installed AMD Overdrive just now. It shows that all my cores are at 47C. At idle.. cpuz shows 36C.. So I wouldn't trust AOD much on the temps. TMPIN1 on HWMonitor is definitely the CPU. TMPIN2 could be the northbridge (or possibly the MOSFETs), but I am not really sure. Have no idea what TMPIN0 is. Think I'll ask Gigabyte about it later today.

Looking forward to seeing your results. I got mine comfortably to 4GHz @ 1.48v but haven't pushed it further just yet.

Well its perty nice running 3.8 at stock, but 4.0 needed 1.5v and im stopping there, sucks how much of a demand it needs for 200MHz increase.
