Anyone have an issue the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 and the i7 930 processor booting up with the the F1 BIOS the board is shipping with?
I've heard some stories of people purchasing the board with certain processors (notably the i7 980x) only to find out the board won't post unless they update the BIOS. But here's the "catch"..... You can't update the BIOS unless you have access to an i7 920 or equivalent because the board won't post with the "unsupported" processor.
See this review "beware of older BIOS with Core i7-980X (Gulftown 32nm)" at newegg.com - http://www.newegg.com/product/product.a ... 6813128422

Do I have to worry about this with the 930 seeing that this is also a "new" processor? I don't want to purchase the board only to find out I have to...
a) Ship it to the manufacture for a BIOS update,
b) "hope" to find someone who's willing to loan me their 920 for the update,
c) Return it.
Also, other than USB 3.0 and SATA 6, any reason why I shouldn't get the board I initially wanted - the Intel DX58SO.
