This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
This motherboard is affordable and has Dual Bios with 6 SATA ports. The dual bios has been a life saver. It has made it easy to reset bios after flashing it twice.
This motherboard has horrible overclock support. I have a AMD 8350FX Processor with a H80i cooler. Tried overclocking with gigabyte software. Software was unresponsive. When I tried overclocking from bios it flashed bios. AMD Overdrive worked however my system keep saying need to restart after getting to around 4.7Mhz with system temp of 20-30 degrees Celsius. If I attempted to go higher then where my computer would need to restart and it would flash my bios.(This is the motherboards fault I have looked into it) So do not get this motherboard if you plan on overclocking.
Not for everyone.
