One of the bottom two? Facing the mobo with it standing upright in the case.

I didn't think it really mattered.

Yeah this isn't Intel, we have six Sata 3 ports on our chipset. (yay I finally get to talk about something that makes AMD better than Intel)
But anyways, just put it in port 0? Maybe it's just my OCD but I always put my main drive on port 0.

hooray! just got mine today, made an offer for 90 bucks shipped for a new one to an ebay seller and he accepted.
and it's revision 1.1!

unbeatable price for getting into the 9xx chipset

Lovin' this board..Especially the Award bios..
Haven't seen those since like 2002 on my old MSI PGA370 board..lol thumb.gif

Only thing is....
Does anyone else notice the NB running HOT
like HWinfo and everything reports 33c idle and about 48c load

But even idle the heatsink is VERY HOT to the touch.
the VRM HS is warm and the SB heatsink is ambient rolleyes.gif

Just added a second fan to my be quiet dark rock advanced and Tmpin2 temp has reduced by 15 degrees so im thinking this is definatley the cpu temp ive had this upto 70 degrees when testing overclocks on my FX-8120 thinking it was my vrm oops.

One other weird thing is if i put the pc to sleep and then bring it out again the cpu temp shows as 9 degrees in touch bios there is something not right with this GA-990XA-UD3 and its sensors i think !!

Hopefully gigabyte will sort this as i want to push my FX-8120 upto 4.6ghz but cant be confident in temp readings.

Wish i had gone ASUS might rma this board.

What does TouchBIOS and easytune 6 report your CPU temp as? HWMonitor shows my tmpin2 at 48, TouchBIOS and easytune report my CPU as 30 so im guessing tmpin2 is not the cpu temp in my case.
