GIGABYTE motherboards feature higher capability audio solutions with 108dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback quality to deliver high-performance, multi-channel HD audio. SNR is a comparison of the amount of signal to the amount of noise - such as hiss - present in the signal (expressed in Decibels). A higher SNR equals a better audio experience. For example, 108dB, is a high audio specification, as this means the audio signal is 108dB higher than the level of the noise.

2 out of 5 eggsGA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 4.0

Pros: the board has plenty of features and is able to do what I need it to do.. when it works.

Cons: board failed. extensive testing of cpu, power supply, memory, and drives show all components are healthy. The board appears to be fluctuating as the fans noticeably speed up and slow down. The board gives no beep codes even when the memory and cpu are removed.

Other Thoughts: I have sent in a support request and will update this review once I receive a working product.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid if using RAID

Pros: mostly works

Cons: This is a followup to my previous review, after contacting Gigabyte support over a problem with getting twin samsung 850 evo drives to work in RAID 0, they contacted me a few days later to say that these particular drives are known to have compatibility problems, and that if I want RAID I should purchase the samsung 850 Pro models instead. Problem is, that not only am I left with two drives that wont do what I bought them for, but the suggested drives are very expensive. So I asked them for a list of drives that were compatible, or at least those that were not, and they replied with "Unfortunately we cannot verified all drives on the market as we do not manufacture drives". Aside from the bad grammar, I'm not asking them to verify all drives on the market, I'm only asking them for info on any drives that they have knowledge of.

Other Thoughts: This board will do RAID 0 with other hard drives, and other motherboards will do RAID 0 with samsung 850 EVO drives, so I'm guessing there is a bug with this board. Whats bothering me is that this board is not compatible with some of the most well reviewed drives on the market, which leaves me wondering what else this board is not compatible with.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: DOA ~ not posting and no beeps.

Other Thoughts: I purchased via Magic Micro, I decided to go with Gigabyte again because my previous board is a GA890FXA-UD5 and its showing its age now, so I decided to order a complete new system with the 990FXA-UD4 Rev4 as the motherboard.

For the most part, I would have liked to see some on-board LEDs like my older board has. This would make diagnosing issues a bit easier.

1 out of 5 eggsRAID 0 problems

Pros: it mostly works and is cheap

Cons: Having problems getting windows to install on a RAID0 array. I was wanting to install windows on twin samsung 850 evo drives. I followed the manual exactly and got the drives to RAID together successfully, but after using the 'load driver' button on the windows install and pointing it to a flash drive containing the drivers copied off the mobo disk (just like the manual said to) the RAID disk does not appear for me to install the OS onto. I tried installing again from scratch using website supplied 'pre-install' drivers, same thing. Looking online other people have had similar problems trying to do the same thing with this mobo. I did successfully install windows with a single drive, but thats not what I want.

Other Thoughts: wish I had bought a different mobo

5 out of 5 eggsOne Kick-*** MoBo

Pros: Very reliable, great performance for the price. All the right features. Look for it on sale. Comes with almost everything you need (see con #2 for missing item).

Cons: Two:
1. Had to disable XHCI handoff in the BIOS to get the USB3.0 ports to recognize USB3.0 thumb drives. Took a while to find this on the forums.
2. Bacon was missing from the box. :-(

AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz, OC to 4.0GHz (using easytune)
2x 8GB G Skill 2133 RAM
Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD
WD black 1TB HD

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I originally purchased an ASUS sabertooth 990fx and had nothing but problems with the board, after much frustration I looked at the positive reviews with this gigabyte board and thought how can I go wrong for a $120 board. I haven't had any issues with this board and I'm extremely satisfied! I have water-cooled Processor which plugged and played flawlessly (no need to tweak bios settings) I strongly recommend this over any other board, even the high end asus boards...

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsWould Buy again

Pros: A great board and has always done what I wanted. On my original purchase the ethernet port went bad. It was only a few weeks before the warranty was to expire. Gigabyte did the RMA mo questions asked after I gave them the problem details, and with a fast turnaround sent my original board back completely fixed. Im still using it right now about another year and half later. I only use an FX-6100 cpu but it does everything I need and plays every game Ive tried.
Im about to upgrade my wife's computer and plan to use this board again.

Cons: The only issue was that after almost 2 years of daily use the ethernet port on the board failed. However Gigabyte was more than helpful with fixing the board and getting it back to me. So the "con" kind of ends up a "pro".

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it because of performance and Gigabyte's good service.

1 out of 5 eggsNice board if it worked

Pros: Specs look good. Board looks great Components well laid out, etc.

Cons: It arrived DOA.. Other then that, it's a great board.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't make up my mind between this board and an MSI 990FXA-GD80. Good thing I bought the MSI also otherwise I'd be waiting for an RMA
