[Official] Gigabyte GA-990XA/970A-Series Owners' Club & Help Thread - FX-8350 support added - Page 16

post #151 of 3278
I just built my new system (last night!) and I'm working on establishing a RAID0 array between my 2 Seagate HDDs. In BIOS I enabled SATA Controller, Set the type to RAID, set port 4/5 type to As SATA type, and disabled RAID5. Saved and Exit.

Then, after turning on and off until I get the magic timing using delete, the screen appears showing my 3 drives and says:

"Press to enter RAID Option ROM Utility..."

I press Ctrl F... and nothing happens.
The page stares at me like the compooternoob I am.

Help?

Related to the USB keyboard issues we are facing in F3 bios?

for the record, I found the motherboard setting I referenced earlier, although it isn't the solution I thought it would be...
"USB Keyboard Support
Allows USB keyboard to be used in MS-DOS. (Default: Disabled)"

Either way, why did gigabyte remove it since Am2+ 780G motherboard!!

POSITIVE NOTE: this board does overclock quite easily, see attachment! 4 Ghz quad + 1800 Mhz DDR3 no sweat! Tonight im going to try 4.5 Ghz @ 2000 Mhz DDR3, hopefully at CL8 (I left them at CL11 for now)

NCIX this weekend has the Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 for $120, $100 after rebate (and no wait rebate!)
I thinkConfirmed - I'm gonna swap my upcoming M4A89TD (or give it to a friend and swap his board) and jump ship!

It seems using it with the 1055T is definitely possible and one person hit 312Mhz bus clock with no issues. I'm going to jump ship on this awesome deal - worst case scenario, NCIX provides a 30 day defective return guarantee.

***! 25IR + 10MIR on a NEW board.... :SHOCKED: are they releasing V1.1 to fix USB (ie: cant be fixed with bios)?

I just finished prettying up the inside of my case, but at that price I think im going to return my 990xa (purchased locally for 140) and buy from NCIX... only 7$ restocking fee, make 33$ profit! Only 50 at that price though... better last till tomorrow.

Only 45 at that price now, but there's plenty of boards to go around. I'm just going to walk into a Richmond store and pick one up smile.gif
If you buy online via web order, you get Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for free. I'm not worried about that though, I'm not really interested in the game.... and if I weborder it'll be longer until I can pick it up (and I'm not sure if there's any time other than tomorrow I can schedule a trip to NCIX).

---

Well I don't have the motherboard yet but I have secured and paid for my order smile.gif
In two days I will have this board. Unboxing video anyone?

@ kevinf: WOW, you have a really good result on this motherboard! Maybe they're not so problematic after all - nice!

--

It's a day after but apparently the price is still valid eek.gif

I think it's valid until they sell out at this price (29 left now!)
The rebate on the other hand is now only $10 but is valid until end of month

Boxes...
22001263776-orig.jpg

I'm considering doing a proper unboxing video.

On a slightly unrelated note, a note on the box says "the board is not eligible for warranty service if purchased outside the United States and Canada."
