first of all, i had to check the date not wanting to resurrect a few months old thread. secondly, nice job. and thirdly, what a beauty. and the clocks are interesting.

Just wanted to point this out:
A Closer Look at the 890FXA-UD7
"This model has been outfitted with both IDE and floppy ports, which should make legacy lovers happy but we're hoping that this is the latest generation of motherboard that features these long antiquated interfaces."
I think you meant to say last. Also, the comment thread link brings me back to the front page of the review, instead of here.
Really liked the review, one question though, why didn't the water block work very well?
Not a Gigabyte specific issue, but maybe their reps can shed some light on the issue..... is there any kind of information available WRT when AMD plans to release an AHCI driver which will pass along the trim command for SSDs?

Somethings aren't ment to be , and as cool as this board is, it would never make a home here...
