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 eggs10 Minute Boot

Pros: Fair price if it worked.

Cons: 3 out of 4 didn't work.

Other Thoughts: I've had the same problem with 3 of these motherboards. The bad CPU just complicated the diagnosis. I tried different ram, hard drives, and video cards in all 3. I tried Windows 7 Pro and Home Premium. All with fresh loads. I thought I had it narrowed down to the HD audio drivers because the problem didn't manifest until after I loaded those drivers. So I did another fresh load without. Then I did SP1 and it came up again. Newegg was good enough to an extent. I don't know if I'm persistent or pig headed. But I'm going to end up taking it in the shorts for one of these boards. Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you. I might get bit again, but the Gigabyte bear won't ever get me again.

5 out of 5 eggsGA-990FXA-UD3

Pros: Cool stealth Motherboard Black/white/silver does not clash with any color scheme. Everything that I need to start gaming and the BIOS works well.

Cons: I think one of my SATA ports may be broken. If I really needed the 6th SATA port I would be unhappy, but I am content with what works.

1 out of 5 eggsThis board is garbage for Linux

Pros: Looks Nice

Cons: Does not play well with Linux. I have spent the last 2 weeks on forums, etc trying to get a server running with this mobo. I have other linux computers and servers that I run at home and work. This board has been a nightmare to work with. I have benn fight kernel crashes, system freezes, and non-working RAID. From what I have read in the forums many of the kernel panics/crashes/freezes have been traced back to the realtek driver. It seems that the previous driver from the Realtek site can be used if you are able to compile it. Onboard RAID 0 is not seen by Linux, only seen as 2 separate drives. If you are building a Linux system, do not buy this board.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board figuring I'd give Gigabyte a shot as I normally use MSI. Never again. I'm used to having to tweak things when building a system or installing Linux, but this is just stupid.

1 out of 5 eggsSo disappointed

Pros: Seemed like a solid build for the price. Layout fairly standard.

Cons: -No onboard graphics. This makes troubleshooting challenging on a new build.
-Absolutely horrendous, non-responsive BIOS, even after updating. I've been trying to play with voltages and half the options won't work. Slow.
-Sata placement is lame.
-USB mega-socket is very loose.
-Placement of CPU socket is too close to ram slots.
-Where are the mobo lights? I don't see any...if there are any, they aren't lighting up for me. Would be the first mobo I've ever had that didn't have a "thinking" light...

What a nightmare this mobo has been! Constant freezing. I have replaced every component attached, triple-checked my connections. It just constantly freezes. I've tried updating bios, updating drivers. I've clean-installed Windows 7 and 8.1 4 times, each. The problem is that it could be so many different things...I've sunk a week into troubleshooting it. I don't know if I should RMA it or not because it DOES post, and looking into bios things SEEM okay.

It's just so weird because two years ago I built a gaming rig with another Gigabyte mobo and it worked great out of box. The bios were way better than this, and the drivers were solid. This is like night and day. I was singing Gigabyte's praises but from reading other reviews it seems like this quality has really plummeted. I know ASUS' customer service is typically lacking, but their products have never failed me like this.

2 out of 5 eggsMOBO

Pros: It arrived fast

Cons: It has worked since it has arrived. At this point I'm trying to get it to work, but I'm doubting that. Having to do the bios update was also a hassle in which I'm not getting through because it seems that the mobo is faulty.
