The Gigabyte ga-f2a68hm-hd2 (Both Revs. 1 and 1.1), are FM2+ socketed mobo per Gigabyte and that is precisely why it doesn't even remotely support FX let alone 220w FX-9000 series CPUs.

IME Asrock is producing some of the very best AM3+ mobos available and at very fair prices. The Extreme9 and Fatality 990FX Pro are excellent choices. Most mobo makers will list what CPUs are supported by each model mobo on their website. You MUST insure that the mobo you desire to use with ANY FX-9000 series CPU has the proper design and VRM heat sinks to power the 220w FX-9000 series CPUs. The see my original post (#2) in this thread on CPU cooling, PSU 12v line amps, VRM additional fan cooling, etc.

Rev 1.x of the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 does NOT support the FX-9000 series CPUs. Rev 3 and 3.1 DO support the FX-9000 series CPUs. All of the info. in my first post in this thread still applies.

Most consumer PC mobos list the CPU/APUs supported on their website by model and Rev. All you need to do is go to the mobo maker's website and look up the "Supported CPUs". The Gigabyte GA990FX Gaming mobo Rev. 1.0  and Rev. 1.1 DO support the FX-9590 and FX-9370 per the links below.
