108dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio Playback

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.

1 out of 5 eggsUnlucky day for me

Pros: Looks very pretty.

Cons: DOA, and had a broken lock on one of the PCIe x16 slots.
Can't even manage to get BIOS beeps. Or a screen to come up on monitor. My computer lights up very prettily and my video card and cpu work fine in other computers, so I have no choice but to assume the motherboard is responsible...

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately for me, after having been in a car accident that has left me mostly crippled for this past year and a half, I haven't been able to put this device in til now. But now I have a year and a half of other people's reviews to look at and see that perhaps I was wrong about getting a Gigabyte motherboard. Too bad it's for too late to RMA :/

5 out of 5 eggsGA-990FXA-UD3 Revision 1.0 - 5 years later and still kicking!

Pros: Longevity! Just browsing my order history and had not realized that this board was 5 years old!

Overclocks well! Had been running it with an AMD Phenom 2 955 black edition for 3 years after purchase, and upgraded to an AMD FX-8320 back in 2013, and running an average 0.5 gHz overclock non-stop on both chips with no power or multiplier throttling and supporting an SLI setup (2 gtx660's currently). Simply a fantastic board for the price at the time. Newer versions probably even more so with the updated chipset cooling.

This thing has outlived a power supply and hard a drive.

Cons: North bridge chipset has been noted by many for running hot, but I have not personally experienced any problems due to overheat.

Software it came with was useless, never used it aside from updating the bios from time to time. Overclocking was all handled manually in the bios.

Other Thoughts: System is currently supporting and running with:

- AMD FX-8320 overclocked to 4gHz
- 2x4GB G.Skill DDR3 1600mhz memory (slight FSB overclock to 1648mhz)
- 2 Gigabyte branded GTX 660 2GB edition cards in sli
- 2 1TB black edition WD hdds
- 1 Samsung 500gb SSD (evo 850)
- Thermaltake 850wt power supply

Have also since performed an in-place upgraded from window 7 to 10 with no issue.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great price/performance, utterly stable with R9-290X and 8350 cpu, on board sound is great. Solved a problem I was having with an older chipset board and crashes due to (I believe) speed changes on my R9-290X.

Cons: None, but would like to see more USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: Recommended for an AMD build

2 out of 5 eggsBudget Board

Pros: - Looks good
- Easy setup

Cons: I noticed that it was taking along time to transfer stuff to my thumb drives but I figured it was my drives causing that issue untill I bought a new printer. I plugged it into the usb port on the back and it sparked and smoked my board.

Other Thoughts: I have been working on computers for 18+ years and never came across this before

1 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.
(Update) They refused my RMA saying the board was damaged in shipping. I guess there is a first time for everything, right??? (I won't be going back to this brand)
I picked up the MSI 990FXA-Gaming and couldn't be more satisfied.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst board I have ever bought

Pros: None

Cons: Audio issues (common problem for gigabyte boards from a quick google).

Other Thoughts: Don't even bother wasting your money on this. In 13 years of IT I have yet to encounter a board as defective as this one. A quick google showed that many gigabyte boards were having issues with audio processing. Better off getting another brand.

1 out of 5 eggs7 mos. old and dead

Pros: Worked well for first 7 months.

Cons: The MB is dead. Not very happy. After reading the rest of the reviews I see I'm not the only one. Just ordered an ASUS replacement MB for my son's computer. Done with Gigabyte.
