This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Very solidly built. Very heavy and sturdy. Looks great.
Worked right out of the box with no issues - just had to install drivers.
Recognized my RAM and had it running at the proper frequency.
The BIOS is nice and easy to get around in. - the board was delivered as rev. 4, so I didn't have to update it.
No heat issues from what I have seen so far. Runs nice and cool.
It looks like Gigabyte addressed whatever issues others were having with earlier revisions. Not seeing any of those problems here.
Nothing warranted taking any eggs off and do not effect how this motherboard works - see other thoughts for a few things that could be a little better:
I/O shield is a bit off, but everything plugs in fine, so not a big deal.
I already had a bunch of screws, etc., but they really should include those.
If you have a giant video card, plug in your SATA cables before you install it. Kind of a pain to plug them in with a big video card already in there.
Paired with an AMD FX-6300, things are running great.
