Confirm: F5 bios fixes usb keyboards when achi is enabled. Also if bus speed is set to auto will read 201.3mhz instead of 200mhz

Can confirm with Matas that CPU voltage still fluctuates, set in bios 1.400volts, HWmonitor reads between 1.39 to 1.42 when running stress test.

I have found the opposite, my read/write speeds have increased after running Atto disk benchmark since flashing to the new f5 bios and boot times are very quick.

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?
I *think* you will be fine but you may have to install new RAID drivers. I'm not entirely sure though.

You actually might not find any info from me very useful, I've been running F4E from the moment I got this motherboard and haven't really ever experienced any BIOS-related problems just that annoying vBoost...

But how would I go about keeping my Windows 7 installation intact? That is my biggest issue.

I'm sure I might be able to figure it out once I go into the Windows 7 installation disk, but I would like to be ready to respond being the case that there isn't a possible method on that installation data.

I was able to keep my Win7 installation intact moving from my 790X motherboard to this 990X motherboard, with some driver reinstallation required. It of course isn't a RAID setup, but may be a useful tip.

I flashed to bios F5 and all the problems I was having, have been fixed.

I currently have one top 140mm fan as exhaust (Lian Li 1200rpm) which is close to the top heat sink and the front and back intakes both 120mm, The CPU never gos over 55c when running prime 95 but the side of the case does feel warm to touch after benchmarking. Is there anything you can under volt to drop the TMPIN2 temps a notch.?

You said that your rear fan you use for intake? Try and reverse it and use it as exhaust try having 2 fans for exhaust. Can you take a picture of the inside of your case so I can get an idea of how crammed your components are. Is your computer on the floor? does it have enough ventilation? is your room hot? all of these can add to why your computer runs hot. Try reapply your thermal compound your temps seem to be a little high for stock configuration for an aftermarket cooler, the heat coming off your cooler can effect your surrounding components. Or you could go into your bios and set the voltages to manual and set your CPU to 1.350 volts try that and see if your temps drop run prime95 or OCCT to make sure it still runs stable undervolting it. Here I found this picture at tomshardware it can give you alittle knowledge when undervolting.

Will it lower TMPIN2 temps.? the CPU temps are fine

Yes by lowering your CPU voltage, your VRM temperature (TMPIN2) should drop. I would also wait for xd_1771 input as he is the guru of VRM.
