Only reason I wouldnt get a 990-XA is because of the Crossfire/SLI ports can only run x16/x8, and x16/x8/x4. No dual x16 but solid board none the less.
post #13 of 29
X8/X8 is more than enough:

Here, in East Europe I grabbed it for 130$.

Anyone see one of these in stock/preorder anywhere? Price? Looks promising as well.

Pros:
Has better fan speed control in bios
5 fan ports, (4 speed controlled*)
Vdroop control
2 esata ports
full Efi bios

Cons:
huge heatsink may get in way of cooler
less phases

Gigabyte- http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList...90xa-ud3_e.pdf
pros:
more phases
partial EFI bios (can boot from 2+TB hd)

Cons:
4 fan ports, only 2 of which speed controlled
no VDroop/LLC control
no esata ports

*based on previous asus M4A 890FX mobo manual where 2 chassis fans were controlled at the same time. Please correct me if im wrong. Any other pros/cons between the two?

[edit] hints that the fans have speed control as well. For sure 2 (4) pin pwm ports seemingly both near the CPU with speed control, hopefully the other 2 (3) pin case fan ports as well.

No eSATA ports? They were standard on the prev-gen 790X boards. Heck, the 790X boards even had a separate PCI bracket with extra eSATA ports!

Looks like the 970 boards will be some great choices for people not needing SLI or Crossfire. Looks like I will be upgrading to AM3+ cpu +board.

Finally the board appeared in one of our country online stores.Lets see now the other stores prices
As i don t need e-sata i m ok (never used the feature on K9A2 Platinum either).
The FXA-UD3 may be a little to high price wise for what i would need so this may be my choice.It s not available anyway ,only UD5 and UD7 are available.
I m rubbing my hands already.
