Pros: Smooth gaming at 144 Hz. Nice physical adjustment features. 3D. I believe it's also upgradable with nVidia G-SYNC module, for tearing-free gaming. Hopefully AMD will also support the tech.
Cons: It took some time to find information on how to get the color calibration right.
Other Thoughts: Calibration procedure I used:
Color temp: user mode: R96 G94 B88
Trace Free: 60
And then I ran Spyder4 Pro calibration to create an ICC profile. Then I used PowerStrip (AMD/ATI only) to load the new ICC profile. Remove Spyder software from start-up. Modify C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\PStrip.ini
This locks the new colors in Windows and games.
Everything improved million times better. I notice some color banding sometimes during dark moments in some videos, but I think it's the result of compression. If anybody has a better/improved way, please post.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Cons: Avoid Gigabyte if you're in Canada. Their RMA service makes you pay UPS brokerage fees. Gigabyte customer service agent says that they don't support brokerage fees.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: update to my review below concerning Virtu MVP software update. The solution is to install the Lucid Virtu MVP from Asrock, then update to the latest version from Lucid (without uninstalling the old version), and answer NOT to delete old settings. The latest version works fine now.
Cons: Totally unknowledgeable Asrock support stuff. My first and probably last board from them.READ FULL REVIEW
