    Interesting, as stated in this thread , ASUS seems to have added thuban support for M3A32-MVP DELUXE board, which is very similar to GA-MA790FX-DQ6 (AM2+/790FX/SB600).

    Waiting for GIGABYTE's turn.

    They already made the "big" move, when they put the Thubans as N/A. Like you said, and I also believe, their decision was deliberate. If there is gonna be any BIOS update for the board, it will pass many months until it is made... but it's not gonna happen.

    PS: I just took an 965 BE C3 today. For now, I'll stick to this one, until Bulldozer is gonna come out. -1 to Gigabyte for this.

    GIGABYTE's turn: F7G

    GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Socket AM2+ - AMD 790FX - GA-MA790FX-DQ6 (rev. 1.0)
    (download it at GA-MA790FX-DQ6 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE )

    So thuban is FULLY SUPPORTED now. (still marked as beta though)

    All praise gigabyte engineers, all blame gigabyte techsupport for (very) poor P/R and misinformation

    I'll be looking for a CPU upgrade soon... :)

    Thanks for posting, zzb. I used not to check their website anymore, since final answer was that ugly N/A in the list... Still, great update though, even it's far too late. I guess this new BIOS update should deal with 1075T and 970BE too. Somebody knows for sure?

    Yes the Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 with the F8I Beta Bios does
    support the Hex core Phenom II's. I am running the 965 BE phenom II
    right now on the F8I bios no problems. Plan to upgrade to a hex core
    Phenom II after they go End-Of-Life and drop in price.

    Hey guys,

    trying to flash my MA790FX DQ6 to version F7g and the flash utility, that comes with the download from gigabyte, isn't compatible with my OS and the @BIOS utility uses .bin files which the BIOS file doesn't download in (downloads as a .F7g file). Wondering if I am supposed to load this .F7g file in @BIOS utility or not/ if there is someway to get the FLASHSPI to work with windows 7 x64.

    Thanks

    @J_Rock
    Just put the file on a fat32 usb flash-drive and flash it with the BIOS built in Q-Flash utility.
