For the sake of posterity, I've uploaded the file (89fxau52.f7e) to MEGA, which you can find here (hopefully it won't expire for some time): https://mega.nz/#!3CIUnKiT!VMavHYIh1...FI6F4N3RuvQZBc

I haven't tried the BIOS yet, since the board isn't with me right now, but I plan on trying it out in a few days. If it fries the board, then oh well; if not, yay for avoiding obsolescence!

Thanks to ig0ru4 for the original upload, and full credits go to Gigabyte obviously.

Hopefully this saves time for anyone else looking for this in the future! Cheers!
Appreciate your help!

Thanks a lot!

2. DO NOT use with a 1090T chip. It is unstable even at stock speeds/voltages, with QVL RAM.
3. The F7e BIOS swap didn't do anything for functionality or stability, though I never rolled it back.
4. Don't bother with the onboard USB3. It always was garbage. Just disable it and get an add-in card.

5. My best opinion: don't use this board. It might work for a week, a month, or a year, but there *will* be a soiled bed, a corrupt BIOS, and just instability the entire time. Oh, it keeps running, and always has, but it's the worst board I've had (and I've used FIC boards). The UD3H was the better, more stable board, that could overclock, and take whatever was thrown at it (I still have one of those running just fine). Never a corrupt BIOS issue, RAM problem, nothing. My previous issues were mentioned in this thread. If you're looking for the F7e BIOS to solve a problem; it won't. The board is flawed, and ultimately the reason why I have not, and will not, buy a Gigabyte product since.

If I can find the BIOS file, I'll upload it here for you, assuming it's possible, and there isn't some rule prohibiting such, as I've not been on these forums in nearly as long.
Thanks man.. I'll waiting for.. I hope you find the miraculous file.

This board is almost 7 years old. We're lucky anybody was given the F7e BIOS. There is 0 chance there will ever be another update, but, why would you want another? The current F7e is perfectly stable and to my knowledge supports all FX series CPUs.
