GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Been working since 2011 01/21/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I don't even want to start because at the end of the day it's just a motherboard that did exactly what i wanted it to do and is very reliable. I purchased it in 2011 and it is now 2014 and is working flawlessly.

Cons: - Not enough fan headers

- Only one PCI-E X16 (X16, X8, X4) that only matters if you are using Crossfire but even then it's not that big of a deal.

- The looks might be a con. It depends on your taste.

- I originally had a Phenom X6 1055T @4.0Ghz and when i swapped to my FX-8320 the bios update went fine and everything but when i put in the FX-8320 it would boot but i got no display. After a LOT of troubleshooting i put back in my old Phenom and went into the bios and set "Load as Fail-safe defaults". Before i clicked "load optimized defaults") to reset the OC on my X6 before swapping. That is literally the only problem i've ever had with this mobo.


Other Thoughts: I don't even think this motherboard is available to buy anyone but i feel i should do the justice of writing it a good review since it's been good to me.

If you are looking for a AM3+ motherboard pickup the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5. It addressed both of my cons, It's black and looks great and has two PCI-E X16 lanes in case you want to do crossfire. It's also priced about $20 higher than what i paid for this but it's definitely worth it.
