Thumbs up

Just received my new 890GPA-UD3H board(black socket) today...when i ordered it from ncix few days ago,everyone else was getting rev. 2.1(AM3)...very surprised to find rev. 3.1(AM3+) when i opened it up.....WOW! This board has so many features/bios settings,i barely know where to begin. Checked Gigabyte website for any bios/driver updates...this board is NOWHERE to be found..well,it's there..just only up til revision 2.1. Can't wait to play around with this board!
