Thanks for the info JBI!!!! here is a tidbit for you
I did read that Gigabyte released a version 3"yep they skipped over v2" of there beast of a board for AM3+ 990FXA-UD7 a monster eATX board that is supposed to fix the problems they had with the version 1 of the board....it looks slightly different and uses a SB950 South Bridge chip.
Here is the comparison page from Gigabyte but I still can not find a place to purchase it in the USA only the UK so far. Someone might be interested in it for there 8350 or one of those 9000 series piledriver chips. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/compar ... =4658,3880
