I am not sure why but if you have a  GA-890FXA-UD5  and you flash the bios to F6 then in the cpu multiplier you dont get half numbers anymore it goes whole numbers only.  Like from 16 to 17 to 18 not 16 to 16.5 to 17 to 17.5 like it used to. Just wanted to put this info out there so others dont get suprised.

OR wait till F7 maybe. Was more of an informational post and not a gripe. Doesn't bother me at all. I just wanted anyone else that was considering flashing to F6 to know ahead of time. Only other difference i was able to tell was that with F4 i crashed 5 to 10 minutes into battlefield bad company 2 because of my overclock. I went back to 3.6 and 1600 ram and didnt crash and it was only that 1 game all other games ran fine but with F6 i am at 3.8 and 1600 ram and no crash.

Something got fixed there though i cant tell you what.
