I have the GA-890FXA-UD5 rev 2.0. It came with BIOS F1, which seems great for overclocking, although in my case I didn't take my CPU to 4 Ghz. But then when they released F2 I updated and it sucked. I followed the advice of the more knowledgeable OCers to do it right, but everything that worked fine in F1 would freeze the system in F2.

What is the general consensus regarding F3 and overclocking, especially for the AMD Phenom II 1090T? And now F4 seems to be available, but judging by the latest posts in this thread it seems to have been released today. So it would be great if somebody that is OCing with the F4 and the 1090T could post results, settings, speed and stability.

F3 is amazing and has been a dream for OC'ing.

Haven't touched F4 yet. Will be giving it a go tonight.

Does the GA-890FXA-UD5 need washers to mount?

Say what? Can you explain what you mean by washers?

This mobo mounts like any others... 9 small posts screw into the case, mobo goes in, and then screws into the posts.

I've got my brass standoffs in, just need to know if I screw directly in or use washers.

Why do any bios above F2 on the 890FXA-UD7 either brick your board or the first boot after you flash gives a checksum error and resets back to F1 ?
F2a bios is good,dont see why they cant get the F3's working on the UD7,seems like the UD5 is getting all the attension,even though the UD7 is the enthusiasts board,but it must be because they sell more of the UD5's.

Yea, It seems strange that they would shun their flagship AMD motherboard so much. Hopefully they're just working on something big, Big enough to make all the poeople with UD5's cry.
