Installed it.............
BUT!...........
2. Add GIGABYTE E.O.C.P support. =Was there in the last F3 beta

3. Add Load Line support (PCB 1.1). = So where is it then?
4.Add Load Line support for a different pcb? pcb1.1????
Add Touch Bios support????
Only thing that you can actually see is the entry for E.O.C.P(supposed added features)

I emailed Gigabyte tech and they asked where it was supoosed to be downladable from.
They say it is not official.
Also what is the point of a supposed bios for the GA-990FXA-UD3 version 1 board and said bios has only one visable extra setting and non visable touch bios support for a board that does not allow touch bios?
Also why release a bios for the 990FXA -UD3 that has a feature only for a rev 1.1 board that does not exist?

I dont know why you keep posting there not official, just because i got it a day in advance there not? go look on there official site, there now finally up there. Still dont believe there official looks at the BIOS version and CPUs supported.

Has anyone actually updated with this bios? becouse i get checksum e000, and the one on the giga website was also wrong, as it was for XA-ud3 model and not FXA-ud3. Any official giga rep can confirm that this update in fact works?

____________________________
THIS is what the release note says :
1.Update CPU AGESA 0.0.9.2 for AM3+
2.Update Dolby Home Theater version
Said so called release note is from the F3 bios on the Gigabyte sites.
So why does it not say the exact same as the one  Mystikalrush posted???
Even Gigabyte tech say those other "features"are NOT in this bios release.
That being so, just where did the note for supposed added items come from?

I updated using the one that I got from the link on here and there is nothing new in it other than added RAM overclocking profiles.
NO touch bios because HOW can it support a touch bios IF the actual bios is the same type as before?

NOT for the FXA-UD3
Its for the FXA-UD7

On the Gigabyte sites it shows it for ONLY the FXA-UD7

Hi there,

If you don't trust the information that has been posted you are quite within your rights to ignore it and not to download the BIOS in question from the link provided and instead download the same version from the Gigabyte site here: http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3894&dl=1#bios

However, I for one, have had several BIOS updates that were sent to me by Gigabyte, with permission to pass them on to other users and then Gigabyte have queried where these BIOS version have come from. It seems to me that there is a lot of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing in Gigabyte and this is compounded by the companies structure.

Around the world, different websites are used to release beta and official BIOS updates for Gigabyte, especially in those countries where ther is no Gigabyte website Overclockers and TweakTown being just two that I can think of.

Instead of being critical of the efforts of Mystikalrush to track down and post an early link of the latest BIOS for this board, it might be better if you actually said thank you.
Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.

THIS is from the Gigabyte site:
F4
1.Update CPU AGESA 0.0.9.2 for AM3+
2.Update Dolby Home Theater version
3.Add Touch BIOS support
Taken from the bios download page for the FXA-UD7
-------------------------
Nowhere on  Gigabyte download page for FXA-UD3 bios does it show an F3 bios with those added items.

That doesn't mean the information provided earlier is incorrect. Gigabyte never posts the full details of what a BIOS update is for.

Ni I agree with absic it has always been a problem with knowing what has been changed ion the BIOS updates. If you are lucky it will have a line or two if not then you are just left guessing. :-\
