the User "b2082863" uses F6 BIOS, His screenshots shows that it seams to work.

I am using F7e, and I can say, YES it works without problems

So I'm thinking of doing everyone with the rev 2.0 board a favor by buying a Vishera CPU and let you all know if it works, but I'm still considering waiting for Steamroller, since the changes to it seem pretty promising and I'd rather not buy a 2nd CPU within the same year (I've been using the one I have now for about 3 years).

Anybody have opinions on whether or not SR will work on the 800 series chipsets? I did some googling and I can't seem to get a definite answer. It appears to be compatible with the 900 series, but no word on 800. Considering the F7e beta BIOS was designed for Bulldozer, there might be too many changes with SR for it to work, then again, I have the same concern about Piledriver. The only difference is PD is really just a bunch of tweaks and improvements, SR seems to be architecturally different.

So I'd like everyone to know that I got the FX-6300 today and it does in fact work on the rev 2.0 board with F7e BIOS. I haven't overclocked yet but I'm getting features that I thought the 800 series chipset didn't have, such as turbo mode and wattage sensor. I haven't overclocked yet and I haven't done too many strenuous tests, but I thought I'd just let people know that Piledriver does in fact work just fine.

I am interested, please keep us informed. Thank you.

I managed to overclock to 4.4GHz, with Cool'n'Quiet enabled and C1E disabled - only used multiplier (seems with these CPUs, messing with the FSB doesn't accomplish much). With C'n'Q on, I can get to 4.5GHz but the 4th core (and only the 4th...) fails at prime95. I personally seemed to get bad luck getting to 4.6 even without C'n'Q, but I might not have pushed the voltage high enough for that. Personally, I'd rather lose the extra 200MHz if it means I get to keep C'n'Q on for better power efficiency. I managed to get as high as 4.86GHz but obviously that was unstable, though not as unstable as you'd think; I didn't attempt to go higher but I'm sure I could.

I can't remember the voltage settings I applied off the top of my head, but you mostly only need to increase the CPU and northbridge voltages a couple notches. I think my CPU voltage is around 1.45v. With my heatsink, I don't get much beyond 50C under 100% load. Hope this helps. Overall, it looks like you can get a pretty typical overclock with the F7e BIOS, but with more tinkering you can probably get a good one (like 4.6). So far the OC capability is nothing amazing but not too shabby either.

If I inspired anyone to get PD for this board, I'd like to know what results you got and what settings you used.

Hi, are there any bios to allow me to use NVidia SLI for my GA-890FXA-UD5 (rev. 2.1) ?? Any help would be great and where can I get them if it is the case??
Anyway, what are the latest unofficial bios I can install and what do they do?? And again, where can I get it??
Thank You

edit: just found a program called HYPERSLI 0.96 and works like a treat with my 2xgtx660. the 0.90 was not working with window 8. well, I would still look for a proper bios if anyone can help and obviously I was wondering what are the drawbacks by using this HIPERSLI 0.96. Anyway is there anything later than the 0.96version?? looks like this was made a couple of years ago.

edit: a bit of a time wasting making these 2xgtx660 get the full frame rate but the sli works anyway. My 965 seems to be a bit week for these gpu's in sli even at 4200mhz. Could see that at certain point of the game, Crysis 2 MP in this case, was dropping frames all at once. Done the same tests on my 3770k rig and it seems that in the same situation it needs to be under clocked down to 2200mhz, no HT, to be in the same situation and similar power compared to the amd965 at 4200mhz.

curious, what do did you upgrade from? Also, where the heck did you get the bios from anyway? I emailed gigabyte asking for it and they said they cannot provide it to the end user.

I upgraded from a Athlon II x3, F6 BIOS, rev 2.0 board. The F7e BIOS is buried somewhere in this topoc, within the last 20 pages or so but I honestly don't remember where, sorry. Just keep going back each page and search for "F7e" and I'm sure you'll find it. I personally don't have the ROM for it. I too emailed Gigabyte and they never gave it to me either.

You emailed them? I think You have to register at Gigabyte website and oben an question
and normaly it´s no porblem to get the beta BIOS file.
Gigabyte answeres within some days
