Also, in terms of your case, how many fans do you have in it, and how much do they flow? The model in your signature doesn't have all that many fans (not what I'd consider enough for the amount of airflow those cards need). Maybe try some higher flow fans to improve airflow, and be sure to provide positive airflow pressure (more intake than exhaust). If all else fails, try another case.
Yes I am running a P183 - It has 4 @ 3 speed Antec 120mm fans .

I am so happy about this cuz my UD5 runs soooo well I didn't want to part with it in order to get an FX chip. Hope this Bios dose OK
I am happy with my 890FXA-UD5 - I wish I could say the same for my recently purchased 990FXA-UD3 . Which was bought to replace my 890 but is not in any way as good or stable . Thats why I am rebuilding the 890FXA
Between BD's underwhelming performance and the flakeyness of the 990 board , it is not an upgrade or at least not the upgrade I was expecting !

Suffice it to say, 2x6870 will provide plenty of performance (I'm happy with 1x6970 myself, and even my old 5850 can still churn out good FPS). If you're having cooling issues (assuming you aren't overclocking) is it possible to put the cards in slots 1 and 3? I know this would make each slot X8, but that is all the cards need for bandwidth. Downside: you'd need to find longer Crossfire straps. If you're really not afraid, you could try liquid cooling the top card at least, or possibly both, but I would try spacing the cards apart more first...cheaper, and will probably be effective enough.
I hope they turn out to be that good - they were shipped this morning - apparently being "Drop-shipped " (?????) from the wholesaler.

Does the f7e bios which supports bulldozer also enable IOMMU?

Temp is shown in the Bios. Smart Fan NO.

I'd like to know this as well. A lot of us moved on to other boards thinking we would never see a 2.0 bios for bulldozer.
