    Only the Gigabyte motherbaord is listed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOMMU_hardware_list The 990FX Extreme4 has been tested, but it isn't clear if it supports IOMMU or not: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=22553.0

    It's good that you're trying an AMD build because most people select an Intel build for their more efficient Ivy Bridge processors and a larger motherboard selection.
