I think I'm gonna get the Fatal1ty board as ASRock seems to be sort of an underdog. And I like supporting the underdog. Then again I could be full of it...

I like your sig rig name. Concerning the Fatal1ty board, it's a darn good one, and no you wouldn't be full of it for choosing Asrock for your next motherboard, IMO.

Some pictures of the new 1.44 UEFI for 990FX Fatal1ty.

Fixed some RAM problem, added additional UEFI background,
updated many features. CPU unlocking more stable.

The DR.DEBUG now shows CPU temperature while system is running.

Very nice. Looks sweet. I guess that seals it, I'm getting that board when I can!

Got an 870 Extreme3 a few days ago, replacing my Biostar TA870+, loving this board so far! I thought the 870 chipset was only capable 16x/4x CF, which my TA870+ did, but the Asrock actually does 8x/8x which is pretty cool. I didnt believe it at first but my 6850s are running at 8x each right now according to CCC and GPU-Z. Games run a lot smoother with less stuttering compared to when I was on my Biostar board
