With a blend of performance, features, design and quality, the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 R5 (rev. 1.0) motherboard is the ultimate platform for you to build an AMD processor based power house. Powered by AMD 990FX and AMD SB950 chipset, this motherboard supports AMD AM3+/AM3 series processors, and features up to five PCIe x16 slots allowing you to build 3-way CrossFire / 3-way SLI multi-graphics configuration for scalable gaming performance. 8+2 phase power design along with Driver-MOSFETs ensures robust and efficient power delivery. The Gigabyte exclusive Ultra Durable technology utilizes a range of design and components to ensure maximum durability, reliability and protection against humidity, power surges, electrostatic discharge, and even BIOS failure. The Realtek ALC1150 codec in concert with premium audio capacitors and dedicated audio hardware separation brings onboard audio far beyond your expectation to an amazing 115dB SNR. The USB 3.0 and SATA III will save you time while transferring large libraries of files, while two eSATA 6Gbps facilitates data backup. Additionally, this motherboard features thermally-optimized heat sink on the PWM area and chipset, enabling a cool look and cool operation under extreme loading level.

  • newegg Durable Design GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components to handle greater than normal power loads and to remove heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential for the motherboard being able to handle the increased power loading when overclocking. Humidity can play havoc on a motherboard's circuitry. The new Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions. The best quality solid state capacitors are integrated, that are rated to perform at maximum efficiency for extended periods, even in extreme performance configurations. This provides peace of mind for end users who want to push their system hard, yet demand absolute reliability and stability.
  • newegg Safety Features GIGABYTE Ultra Durable motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC’s most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a ‘Main BIOS’ and a ‘Backup BIOS’, making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes. And this motherboard features special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.
  • newegg Driver Mosfets for Better Power Efficiency A traditional Voltage Regulator Module (VRM) consists of a Choke, Capacitors, MOSFETs and a Driver IC. By incorporating the MOSFETs and driver IC in accordance with the Driver-MOSFET specification, it's possible to achieve higher power transfer and increased efficiency at higher switching frequencies to satisfy the growing power requirements of today's processors. Driver-MOSFETs also help to reduce VRM real estate requirements in the CPU zone.
  • newegg Superb Onboard Audio The Realtek ALC1150 is a high-performance multi-channel High Definition Audio Codec that delivers an exceptional audio listening experience with up to 115dB SNR. The ALC1150 provides ten DAC channels that simultaneously support 7.1-channel sound playback, plus 2 channels of independent stereo sound output (multiple streaming) through the front panel stereo outputs. Two stereo ADCs are integrated and can support a microphone array with Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC), Beam Forming (BF), and Noise Suppression (NS) technologies. The Realtek’s exclusive converter technology achieves Front differential output 115dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback (DAC) quality and 104dB SNR recording (ADC) quality. This motherboard features high quality Nippon Chemicon ARE series audio capacitors, which deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for user experience.
  • newegg Extreme Multi-GPU Support Flexible graphics capabilities supported for either 3-Way CrossFire or 3-Way SLI action, delivering the ultimate in graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
  • newegg All New Heat Sink Design GIGABYTE motherboards feature new heat sink designs that offer uncompromisingly efficient cooling on key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset (PCH). GIGABYTE motherboards offer cooling support of the crucial PWM area so even the most aggressive and extreme configurations will be kept well within optimal thermal parameters.
