2 out of 5 eggsGA-990FXA-UD7 Disappointment

Pros: looked amazing, loved the designer packaging, the onboard seven segment LED trouble coder mounted on the motherboard was a first for me, it was one of the things that actually drew me to it plus that it supported my new AMD+ cpu FX9590 5ghz 8 core cpu.

Cons: waited a week of anxiety and excitement in anticipation of the all time bestest motherboard that i finally chose to become mine. It arrived, i hooked it up, i saw the trouble codes for 10 seconds and then .... only the power light. the motherboard had arrived DOA. yes, dead on arrival. and now im flabberghasted. RMA time.

1 out of 5 eggsMotherBoard died after windows install

Pros: Nice motherboard, Started right up when assembled and was able to install windows with no issue.

Cons: I rebooted right after the windows install, it powered on gave the code 0d the video was not working, I tried four different video cards two brand new the other two older ones that still work in the computer they are from. I tried from every pcie slot and got nothing. It seems as if the pcie bridge just stopped working, which is weird because the video card that I have that does not have a separate power connection, powers up and the fan on it runs without a problem. I emailed support that same morning and being that it was a holiday weekend did not expect anything right away. Still have not received a response.

Other Thoughts: If it worked it would have been a great motherboard for what I wanted it to do.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: lots of PCI-E slots. capable of quad SLI or CrossfireX. I love the onboard power and reset buttons. This is good for testing. Could also be good for a bench board since it has an ERROR display indicator on the board and the manual has all the error codes to diagnose the problem

Cons: Cant seem to find out why my 1866mhz Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracers only read at 1333MHz.

Other Thoughts: i doubt its something to do with the motherboard since my last Gigabyte board did the same thing. Chances are the RAM is bad since the ERROR display reads 40 which means that DIMM bank 2 is bad or memory is bad in Bank 2

3 out of 5 eggsDamaged Peripherals

Pros: The board is alright; it does what is says on the box.

Cons: The USB hub in my keyboard and my gaming keypad overheated while plugged into this board. I suspect is has to do with the USB power boost feature. It's likely that the fault is mine somehow, but just be aware that it is possible. It doesn't feel good to burn up $140 in peripherals.

4 out of 5 eggsGA-990FXA-UD7

Pros: Seems well built, and performs solidly. I usually purchase Asus but I needed more pci-e x4 slots than were available on Asus motherboards.
I have had no compatibility issues, have installed 2 HP P400 raid controllers, Highpoint raid controller, Creative Xfi sound card, HD7780 Video, Hauppauge Colossus TV Capture.

Cons: Not Nearly Enough PWM Fan Controllers.
I am spoiled by Assus which has Six or more, but 2!, on a low end board I can understand, but on a board designed to be highly expandable Ridiculous.
I much prefer the Asus Overclocking utilities, and BIOS configuration. (Not saying better just my personal preference)

Other Thoughts: Other than the fan and utilities software, this is an excellent board.
It is rock solid

2 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: The only good thing was Newegg support.

Cons: I had a bad board out of the box and I called Gigabyte and they said they would NOT honor the warranty. I spend about 12 hours on the phone with Gigabyte thought the week. Then I contacted Newegg, they said they would honor the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: One of my complaints is that I had a bad board. I know its going to happen to someone, but my biggest complaint is that it took 2 1/2 mouths to get a new one.

5 out of 5 eggsno problems

Pros: The GA-990FXA-UD7, like other baords in Gigabyte's Ultra Durable series, is built like a tank. The PCB is very thick and there is virtually no flex whatsoever. This is a very solid motherboard, you can't tell from the pictures. The layout is clean with nothing looking like it was shoehorned in. Full-length heatpipe connecting the Southbridge, Northbridge and VRMs for a more even heat dissipation. Fired right up after installing, already came with the latest FC BIOS.

Survived an 8 hour run of Prime95 blend without warnings or errors, and the highest temp observed by HWMonitor was 43°C at full load. The G.Skill RAM was running its most aggressive XMP Profile 2 with timings of 1866Mhz at 9-9-9-24-1T.

Cons: Loadline calibration doesn't work well, or at all, when set to Auto. To maintain proper voltages when under full load (such as a Prime95 run), you need to set the Loadline Calibration to "High". Not "Very High", not "Extreme". Just "High".

Not really a con, but you need to be mindful of the PCI-E slot #1 (where your only/first video card goes). If you have a large CPU cooler like Noctua NH-D14, the back of the video card will be within a few centimeters of the fins/fan clips on the Noctua. No risk of contact, but they are close.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that this is an Extended ATX motherboard, so be sure your case can accommodate it before you order.

If you are populating more than three PCI-E slots, Gigabyte recommends connecting ATXP4 to a SATA power connection for auxiliary power to ensure the slots are not power starved.

Newegg was out of stock on this board for months, literally. I emailed Gigabyte's tech support and asked them if they were still making it. I got an email reply 8 minutes later saying yes they still make this board. Yes, 8 minute turnaround to an email question. On a Friday. Amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsNot Owned but response to Manufacturer

Pros: Manufacturer caring and thoughtful responses to customers, AMD name, Gigabyte Power, Rock Solid

Cons: NA

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to say thank you to Gigabyte for responding to the reviews on Websites like Newegg.com. The concern and extra mile you go pays off in loyalty. While I typically by Asus because they have outstanding customer support, I have used Gigabyte in the past and have had nothing but rock solid stability and performance. Keep it up.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Bought my first board to use with amd 8350 and 2x7950s. Got into mining sold both cards for 810$ and bought 2x290s for $394 each from here. Burned out one of the gpus and damaged my motherboard, sent back for rma and couldn't wait and ended up buying another from newegg and to go with it a 9590 cpu. Mobo came as rev 3.0 and with current fc bios to use the 9590...slapped it all together and with another 290 so 3 in total. and wow....POWERHOUSE....I also have the lepa 1600 gold. so my cieling for oc is getting pretty slim since the 290s can be quite the power hog. overall the Ud7 is prolly the best board I've used for amd platform. Bought the Asus rog board and was not liking the performance compared to the ud7, simply returned and bought the ud7.

Cons: none...regret mining with mine.

Other Thoughts: Asus rod board looked awesome and pretty sleek but overall i could not get what I wanted out of it, that being said others may get what they want and is a decent and comparable motherboard. I simpy couldn't get the performance I wanted for the price I paid.
