Hello guys! I just bought a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 from microcenter. After I got it home I was looking at the box and noticed that it is the 1.0 revision. I wanted to ask you guys if I should take it back and see if they have the 1.2r? The reason I ask is that I'm a bit freaked out about some of the bad reviews the board is getting. The UD3 is going in my sig rig with a change of ram coming in the next week. I picked out this G.Skill ram for it. I have not installed the board yet do to my OS being an OEM version. I also have plans of using thisCrucial SSD and Crossfire 6970's after I pick up a new PSU. all these goodies will be topped off with a custom water loop involving 2x240 and a 120 rad. The pump and fans will be PWM with an Aquareo 5 as the brain behind the Water loop. What do you guys think? Ohh yea.... my 955 will also be being replaced with a BD as soon as I see some bench's after its release:D The main reason for this post is to get some helpfull advice about the board. What BIOS should I use? and should I take this board back in favor of the 1.2r? To say the least I am paranoid about the board acting up lol. Thank for reading!!

PS: There will be a full build log in the next 2 weeks or so:)

You would have to ask the (990FXA club). This is the (990XA club) so we dont know much, about the GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 1.2

Not trying to be rude, but they would be better help asking questions about the 990FXA motherboards.

How is it?

I wont be able to use my Asus Xonar DG sound card when I get my second MSI gtx 560ti Hawk video card to run SLI. The second card will overhang the pci lane that my sound card is in right now.

So is the sound loud and clear or so/so?

Im using on optical .... it s very good not like Xonar DX but better than others onboard sound cards

I have not noticed any vdroop however I did have a ton of vboost with older bios versions I am on F8 now and the voltage stays constant at 1.5v.

F8 fixed your vBoost? I am still on F7, perhaps I need to give F8 a look myself.

Maybe gigabyte should be warned about F9A BIOS?

Strange things happen if I try to run CPU NB at 3200MHz. I'm stable at 3000MHz 1.35v, but if I try to run @3.2GHz even at 1.5v I get error in the BIOS: "your BACKup BIOS is being updated to the latest version". OS is not posting.

^ That may be related to instability unless it is F9A specific. I will be contacting GIGABYTE support about the F9A bugs reported so far.

EDIT: IT seems similar bugs have been reported with the 990FXA-UD3's F5A BIOS.
I have to to a preliminary conclusion that these new BIOSes are most optimized for the upcoming AMD FX processor, but in a way that makes them unsuitable for current generation processors. It is possible. According to this post it may have been true that certain BIOSes had certain different optimizations for a specific ASUS board. Also, several AM3 boards from ASUS that had beta BIOS released early for "AM3+ CPU support"; these beta BIOS were not actually recommended for use with an AM3 processor, and it was recommended that you flash when the FX comes out.

I did also change the settings that might have done it, but mine has been sorted yes.
