I've been having some stability issues with this board as well. I was having a terrible time trying to OC my CPU on the 0705 bios so I updated to the beta bios 0810. From there I had a little better luck but I am not a fan of running a beta bios so I switched back to 0705 and now system wont even revert my OC settings so I can boot into Windows.

However, today I noticed that the ASUS website is now offering an official bios update, 0813. I am gonna try to clear my CMOS and update to the newest bios tonight and see what happens. Depending on what bios you're running, you might want to consider updating as well. The ASUS website states the new bios helps improve RAM compatibility as well as system stability. Hopefully it corrects the nasty vdroop I get.

When running both cards in crossfire mode, you will only be able to use the display ports on the primary card. Crossfire mode disables the ports on the second card as only the gpu is needed to assist in rendering.

I don't plan on using crossfire so I don't feel the 990FX well be useful to me in that end but would one or the other see better overclocking with the HT/FSB with M5A99X or Sabertooth? I like saving money and my PC is only really used for gaming/movies.

well in my case the m5a99x is a all right board picky as hell and dead on voltage if ur off just by one ur ****ed and u have to figher it out all over agane and the sabertooth well i know taht ppl do use them but its still has eufi bios wicth in any case are trick than hell but if u even think about even cross fireing or may have it floting around in ur head get the board i would of picked the sabertooth in my case but i didnt have the money to get it at the time ia i need somehting know not later only diffren in then is ones blue and white and the other one is a nasty gree color and the saber tooth u can cross fire x16 in both slots in the m5 if ur running a singel card its x16 if ur crossfireing its x8 for both slots besides the black i belive its a x4 or x8 only diffrence and im the m5 boar dthe 6 core procesors work a hell of a lot better to over clok with the software ive seen 1100t and the 1090t hit 4ghz or 38ghz im my case i cant even get the 955 to 3.7ghx stable if taht tell u anything i would say the sabertooth just because i know how this board workds and acts but who know u mite jsut be better off just buying a m4 board that can cross fire and call it good till that work the bugs out of the new ones if ur no going to get the fx processor any time soon but if u are there really not any faster than the 1100t no at all the 1100 t is raw 6 core pumping power the new 8 cores and the 6 cores in turbo mode its a really hig clock 3 core or 4 core bepending on witch fx chip u get like my self i want power and i want it know no later i but anyways i got the fx board for later chips and i will be getting a 1100t with a raid card soon and a full case also this mid tower stuff is kinda cramped and samme for me i grow out of the mids know im know big but ur chose have fun and wish u luck

have an M5A99X Evo myself got it about 2 weeks back now and have only just finished the installing as i have been busy i had a little play yesterday with a quick overclock also note though on the ram side my 1600Mhz Corsair Veng Blue showed as 1200 odd Mhz after adjusting the settings in bios they are now set as 1600Mhz i managed to do a slight auto clock to 3.7 Ghz temps after 30 min`s of stress were at about 66 deg c max with stock cooling i spose adding a H100 to reduce the heat will help a hell of a lot more i wont be shocked if you can hit 4.4 + Mhz with the right cooling and patience but then im no expert have seen a few youtube clips on the matter also ....thumb.gif least there are a few of us with the board now i also got myne from Mwave.com @ like $179 what CPU and Ram are you guys using also what GPU could do some benches and so forth and really work together to get the end results on this if you guys like ? biggrin.gif
