2 out of 5 eggsRIP 2009-2012

Pros: Beautiful Credentials

Cons: Only lasted 4 year

Other Thoughts: I am really disappointed, I rely on this Mobo to last me me a little longer, I am not a gamer but I use this to connect two HD in Raid for Photographic storage.
Now I have to start all over, Grrr.

5 out of 5 eggsBest board for the money

Pros: I bought this board because I felt I would not use the added features of the 790FX chipset. I didn't need onboard video or e-sata, nor did I need to spend an extra $30 to get those features. This board is priced perfectly, it has all the features you could ever want and more. The Bios settings are easy to interpret if you're even vaguely experienced with computer hardware.

I overclocked my AMD X4 955 to 3.8GHZ just by changing the multiplier to 19x. I'd call that a straight forward overclock, I had much more of a struggle with my old craptel system.

Cons: nothing.... just nothing

Other Thoughts: If you're interested in getting the best performance to price ratio, buy this board

5 out of 5 eggsRock stable

Pros: Completely stable, although I've only bumped the overclocking a bit so far. Running Windows 7 64-bit without a hiccup.

Cons: Couldn't get it to unlock extra cores, but that's really not the motherboard's fault or purpose.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Great overall quality with decent heatsinks on the northbridge and VRM. Very good VRM design with 8+2 phase power. BIOS has ACC and numerous settings to help get the most out of your CPU.

Cons: Nothing major but very tight spacing on the AM3 socket and the first memory slot. Couldn't use the first memory slot with Xigmatek HDT-1283 in place. Fits if memory is placed first and then put on CPU cooler but that is a pain.

Other Thoughts: Unless you have a very large case, the slightly smaller than normal ATX size makes the edge mount SATA ports easier to access.

5 out of 5 eggsin response to Bugler

Pros: Gigabyte is a good name brand

Cons: the colors

Other Thoughts: It does support nVidia graphics contrary to what Bugler says. It just will not support SLI thats all.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great. Have had zero problems.

I love the blue look. I got a case with blue LEDs and some blue RAM so my rig looks really slick through my case window.

Cons: The audio jack thing is EXTREMELY far away from my front audio jack for my case. In fact I would say it is located as far as it possibly could be from the top front of my case. The wire from the front audio jack doesnt even make it halfway to the connector, but this is really only a minor inconvenience for me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy install and hookup. Win Experience Index is 7.3

Cons: Had to call Gigabyte and find out that I needed to hook my optical drive to SATA port #5, after that no problems. The rebate offer sucks, Gigabyte really makes it difficult. First they try to rip off $2 for fast processing then about 3 pages of info to complete, then print rebate page and then you have to cut out the address label and tape it to the envelope...Bizzare...

Other Thoughts: AMD Phenom II X4 955, Gigabyte GV R4672L-1GIRT video card, CORSAIR|CMPSU-650TX 650W RT power supply, 2Gx2|PATRIOT PGV34G1333ELK RT DDR 3 memory, all in a LIANLI|BLACK PC-K62 RT case. Windows 7 64bit OS

5 out of 5 eggsNice build package

Pros: I made my computer rebuild based upon a build guide from the folks at anantech for a mid range AMD machine. Per those specs, I purchased the Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P board, the Henka Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition CPU, the Gskill Ripsaw F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) 2x2gb ram, the POWERCOLOR AX4850 1GBD3-PH Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support (they recommended the 512k but for $10 more, got one gig, Video and Win 7 Pro -64.
This board and CPU quickly unlocked the X3 into a Phenom II x4 BE 920 processor. To unlock, go into Bios, MB Intell Tweaker, set CPU voltage control to 1.400v (to power the 4th core), enter Advanc Clock Calibration, set EC Firmware to Hybrid, set Adv Clock Calib to All Cores, and Value of (all cores) to +4%. Then verify with CPUid that you now have a quad.

Cons: The ATX_12v_2x4 power plug in port was hard to get to after my heatsink was installed. I have a huge case. I could see where others with a smaller case might have difficulty accessing their six sata ports on the inside edge of the board once installed.

Guys, read the manual before you complain about dead boards, CPUs, etc. or the fact it does not work with nvidia graphics. It is an ATI graphic board because Gigabyte went with the test graphics manufacturer in the market right now to avoid other hassles.

Other Thoughts: Have not done much overclocking yet as still setting up my system software, but I am stable at DDR1333 with manual timing of 7-7-7-21-2T, per memtest 84 and primes 95. Use prime95 v25.9 build 4 to stress all 4 cores at the same time in 64 bit. With no overclocking, my Win Experience Index is 7.2 processor, 7.5 ram, 7.3 on graphic and gaming graphic. Be sure to download AMD overdrive.

Make sure you plug power into ATX port and also the ATX_12v-2x4 or you will not get a post, beep, nadda.

5 out of 5 eggsGA-MA790XT

Pros: Solid motherboard,runing stable for a year now,8X muilt for memory for future prof,heat pipes and extra copper made it a solid board.Will unlock CPU with ACC

Cons: spend a lot more time than i wanted to tweaking this board,did not outperform my AM2+ BOARD with same CPU and cheapo 5 5 5 15 DD2 memory at 1100 mhz, my bad ,my 1600mhz 9 9 9 24 will only do 7 7 7 20 at 1066mhz, my bad ,low understanding of the new K10 system,wish it had more volted control over the northbrige setup like the cpu,will only go up to 2400mhz, i think this is where i lost some of the performance over my AM2+ setup. had to install stanoff on board.
AOD is very not very soported on all setings, runing raid 0 on Gsata port, 100% stable but very slow at startup.
con for newegg, not getting my e-mail from you guys no more, the local store had this board cheaper,if you factor in shipping or tax & warranty is wy i didn't buy it here, but i still am routting for newegg, my only E-tailler,may the best win

Other Thoughts: Got this motherboard back in march 09, a big plus for Gigabyte for being one of the frist to soport AM3 , the memory was a little bit of a hip at the beging , the cpu only soport 1333, but now you can but some 2000 or 2133 memory set and down clock it, i feel like i lost some money on the menory.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent board

Pros: Good quality, easy installation, good documentation, great BIOS.

Cons: Won't run my G.SKILL Ripjaws at the specified 1.5v. The lowest voltage even available in the BIOS is 1.6v. The board also has some minor bugs, and doesn't seem to like handling 4.0GHz or greater overclocks on a 955 C3.
