Unrelated but can you use Q-flash with this board?
Yes.

I have myself updated to the GA-990XA-UD3 F7 BIOS.
  • POST seems a bit faster, first of all.
  • No noticeable stability improvements as of yet.
  • Ctrl + F1 unlocks an "Advanced Chipset Features" page where you can control the PCI-E links as well as SB spread spectrum. Nothing special.

I updated to the GA-990XA-UD3 F7 BIOS from F3. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem:

All of my drivers were gone. Windows was going through and automatically installing them, most were installed ok , but the usb controller ones failed and it is stuck on trying to do the ATI Fire Pro 4800 ... Just says "pending"

Is that normal after a bios update?

Yes, F7 is posting faster, but I get nervious when after pressing delete during Gigabyte logo I can't get to BIOS and it happens quite often. OS starts loading.

This board is very weird

I was looking at Hardware monitor a few mins ago and realized my Idle temps were 10 degrees (C) less then what they were yesterday. I'm running the burn test now and my peak is also 10 degrees less then it was yesterday! I'm running at 50C now.

It's a little cooler today, but it's not 10 degrees Celsius cooler, that's for sure!
