I've had a great quality experience with the 890FXA-UD5!
No issues at all except... I seem to have ordered an x4 965 to replace my x3 720.
It should be on my front porch when I get home!!!
I don't know how it happened... I blame the upgrade knomes!!!
Hey, at least they didn't order me an x6 1090T!!!
I think the x4 is better for gaming anyway.
BTW I have my OCZ AMD BE DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
running at rated clocks "8-8-8-24" and voltage "1.65V" and happy as a clam. I do wish NewEgg hadn't dropped the price right after I bought it! Oh-well.
Can't wait to drop-in the new proc tonight!!!Edited by fidof650 - 5/12/10 at 8:27am
