Those temps seem to be a bit high for stock settings. How many fans are you using for exhaust, even though you have that 120mm fan blowing cool air down onto the vrm heat sink if you don't have enough exhaust, the hot air is just building up in the case. When you run prime95 touch your case does it feel warm, hot, or cold. Bad air flow could be rising your temps what are CPU temps when you run prime95?

More AM3+ code updating and "touch BIOS" hybrid EFI interface support.

New BIOS for the 970 boards too now.
Have any of these new updated Bios have fixed the keyboard issue from when AHCI is enabled, or are they just updates for further new CPU's.

They might (and it is not mentioned).
I haven't been able to update BIOS, Q-Flash is not recognizing my 8GB flash drive.

Lol i was just about to write about the F5 Bios

f4 did a new icon for sound with Dolby Home Theater and a lot of settings game video music
in 4e there was an line calibration setting or something like that f4 don't have it anymore

just updated to F5 at first look nothing new
this touch thingy is good for seeing in windows what settings u have in bios

BTW i have usb keyboard and AHCI enabled no problems with any bios

LLC? Removed in F4?
Interesting, perhaps the vDroop (or vBoost?) issue has been addressed.

Don't really care about Dolby home theatre, I have a sound card!

I'll just wait till xd_1771 flashes his bios to F5 and see what he has to say. I don't really need to change since my computer is running great. That touch bios looks interesting.

Wow, us launch day happy ppl could have missed a really important feature if we didn't update our bios! They should have advertised it better during product launch [that it was going to be released soon].

Looking forward to using it tonight! Sounds like a much better alternative to EFI bios as those seem buggy according to threads. Hopefully they add support for exporting bios (OC) profiles.

Wonder what CPU code they added to F5? CPU support list looks same.

I went ahead and ordered this motherboard after I was freaked out by Mr. OP/MOD himself about my whole system blowing up lol

Any idea if it might be possible to keep my RAID0 array coming from a SB850 without having to wipe out 900GB worth of data? Any help is much appreciated.

Also, how are 1090T overclocks looking?

Can confirm: F5 doesn't have LLC, CPU voltage still fluctuates. There are some new RAM O.E.C.P profiles.
Talking about Touch BIOS, there is a big bug regarding C&Q. At BIOS it's disabled, but Touch BIOS shows enabled. Also, it loads slowly even at SSD.
