GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Wanted to love this board but at $140 it doesn't work well for me 04/03/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It did boot

Cons: The UEFI/BIOS is bad, primitive bad. I came from a older Asus Crosshair IV board on this build (no USB 3.0 built in) and I believe its faster than this board. Everything seems slower. I moved the FX8150 (3.6Mhz) straight over and added an additional 32 G.Skill 2400 Ares memory. New video card with double the memory, SSD 256 Plextor and added new 3tb Seagate for storage. I can't change a thing in the UEFI. It simply crashes on boot. So every single thing must be left at 'default' and memory stays at 1333.

Other Thoughts: I've read but I guess not understand the owners manual. After 6 reads I still don't know what M.I.T means! The Asus BIOS is sooo...much better in understanding and I was able to move the memory speed right up to their DDR3 2000(O.C.) limit; not this gigabyte board...1333 is it. Forget any CPU boost, the system just crashes any level above the defaults. Great features but no clue what is going on. Feel a bit cheated.

5 out of 5 eggs Will not boot with Windows 10 (fixed with reinstalled MB drivers) 02/27/2016

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D501TDB Black

Pros: Nice looking and mine is very quiet. Drive is working great now. I had the latest drivers installed for the motherboard (MB) but along the way something happened and the re-install fix the startup problem and drive speed issues.

Cons: Windows 10 Pro x64 system will not boot with the drive connected but the MB drivers fixed that. Seagate helped was terrific and sorry I bad mouthed in the first place. Speed is as it should be.

Other Thoughts: Take it all back...drive is purring like a kitten.
