ASUS GTX770-DC2OC-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great card so far. Runs cool, quiet, fast

Cons: none yet.

Other Thoughts: I've always used reference cards before in an attempt to keep my case temps low. I have to say that I am impressed with how cool this card is running (stays below 60c gaming, lower than 30c idle in an antec900 case). Also there is no increase in case temps after switching from an outdated gtx 280 reference model that vented all exhaust outside the case. I'm really surprised, it seems like my overall temperatures are lower. Loving this card so far.

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

Pros: I really want to like this board. It looks great, and in theory would overclock very well. I have revision 4 of this board, in a case with good airflow and temps are pretty low. The board looks and feels pretty solid.

Cons: I'm using a phenom ii x4 955 be rev c3 cpu with this board.
I've tried using said processor in 2 different motherboards and haven't had a bit of trouble. I'm having the same problem that apparently others have had where when you change the multiplier in bios, it only changes for 1 of the 4 cpu cores. I've tried everything I can think of a few times over now. Re flashed bios with previous and current bios. reinstalled os(win 7 64bit) a couple times, and even tried clean os with no additional software. Tried different chipset drivers, and even no chipset drivers.
I've had no luck with gigabyte "support tickets" so far. Every response is simply them asking how I know only one core is being changed, even after explaining numerous times various forms of confirmation including monitoring each cores productivity in multithreaded applications, and using cpuid, hwinfo64, and the list goes on and on.
In bios it shows that all four cores are changed but that is the only place that it shows. I've considered upgrading to an fx processor sooner that I had planned just to see if I still have the same issue, but again I have already verified that my current cpu doesn't have this issue in other motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I don't think being able to change the multiplier on an unlocked cpu is too much to ask of a 990fx based motherboard. If I can get this issue worked out I will happily rate this board 5 stars. Until then...
Its a real pain when you have issues with a motherboard. Out of all the hardware in a computer its the worst because you have to uninstall and reinstall everything to change it out. This makes an rma or sending it in for repair that much more trouble. I really hope someone can offer a solution to this, otherwise I suppose it's time to start shopping for an asus motherboard.
