I can say I still love this board and the F9a and F9b beta bios have been great for me. For those of you running the @bios to update, I have seen on many other forums that this is NOT recommend as it will eventually hose your board. I can not verify this by personal experince as I will not even try it. I figure better safe than sorry. Make you own decision on it but know that people are reporting issues. I always use the Q-flash with a floppy disk. I know, what's a floppy?
