I think I saw a couple of them in there.

Nope, no 890FXA-GD65's on that list, although interestingly enough there was a 990FXA-GD65.

Most of which were the older 4+1 boards. There were no 890FXA-GD65 boards on that list, and only one 9xx board, which was probably due to being unlucky.

Could be splitting hairs, but it could be due to less people who post such stats not being willing to buy msi anymore to see if those boards are good or not after the horrid rep they earned. I still don't trust them, it will takes years before I give them another look.

So I ordered the 990FXA GD-80V2 , good deal now at the egg $144 with 8 gbs of free ram thrown in on the deal smile.gif. We will see if it stands up to the 8350 with an extra Ghz or so behind it biggrin.gif
The one I had VRM problems with was an 890GXM-G65 .

im pm'd ya back but i'll post my response on here for others if they're curious.

my crosshair v is the rev 1.01 board.
not the newest crosshair v formula z.

and i am also using 1402 bios.

i'd really like to see how updating the bios would improve stability - i keep getting an odd bsod when i apparently push it passed what it wants to. i am starting to feel the bios is holding me back. but i think i'll wait until there's a bios update for the board. asus loves it's rog line so im sure sooner or later we'll get an update.

I've thought about grabbing this board since it looks like an awesome deal, that is, considering overclocking on any UD3 board that lacks LLC control is absolutely impossible.

The next board I take is going to be from MSI. I'm literally spooked after reading ASUS horror stories and now this bios ruckus.
MSI because they were very efficient with my 560Ti RMA(s).

I think this chip requires decent cooling to hit 5Ghz. Lets say it reaches 4.5Ghz on a cooling solution like CM212 EVO, now my current PII955 hits 4Ghz with CM212 EVO under 55c as long as I maintain an ambient of less than 25c, and winter is here so I could literally leave it at 4Ghz and not look back. I wished to run 5Ghz with the same solution, but well rolleyes.gif

4Ghz Deneb vs 4.5/4.6Ghz PD is what I'm looking forward to, before I get this new toy thumb.gif

Surprised you haven't switched to 1605 yet since that is what all the reviewers were using for stability.

This is the one they were using on the rev1 CHV:
