GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good design, affordable price, many features, 2 PCI express 1X conveniently placed. Solidly built.

Cons: Not a con. Has only 6 SATA3 Ports vs 8 on UD5. But that is understandable taking into consideration the lower price on the UD3.
Both boards perform very similarly.

Other Thoughts: It is replacing a GA-990FXA-UD5 in usage for approx 2 yr. That is a gamer board, having 4 PCI EXPRESS 16 slots and 1 PCI express 1x slot, inconveniently placed near the power supply regulator heat sink. This placement is a design limitation which prevents using full size PCI express cards. I am not a gamer. But other than that the UD3 works flawlessly. And with an Asus full card wifi adapter to up to 1.3 GHz in speed.
One other difference is is in the USB 3 controller. Etron USB 3 on UD5, vs VIA USB# on UD3. But differences are minor.

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice design, comes with all hardware and screws. Installs in a few mins. Ample 2 bay capacity. Very functional in my view.

Cons: it's plastic but it doesn't matter.

Other Thoughts: I would buy more of those. Its a must for anyone using a Dektop with a SSD lacking an adapter. And the current adapters coming with the SSD's are highly incompatible with my Antec P180 modular HDD bays. This works like a charm!

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Excellent, fast, easy installation, looks good quality.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: For the bad mouthes... I get with ATTO and on Windows 7 Ultimate 500 mb/sec write and 532 mb/sec read which surpasses the rated specs. I really don't know what is the real fuss here...
