GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great board with some issues 08/26/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: -Cheap.
-A true 8+2 VRM.
-Can overclock easily (More on that later).
-Doesn't run hot, although the NB does get quite warm.
-Nice UEFI layout and is easy to use.

Cons: -Overvolts the CPU by quite a bit and needs to be fixed.
-When adjusting the core voltage be careful because if you set it to a certain value you cannot change it (some bug I assume?). The only way to reset the voltage is by reflashing the Bios. (This seriously needs to be fixed because it ruins the whole overclocking friendly thing on this board.)

Other Thoughts: If you're on a budget, get this board. Other then the hot northbridge and the strange Core voltage bug, it beats any other 970 board on the market. It's not perfect, but it's really good.

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No need to mess with timings or voltage.
Low profile.

Cons: Both sticks didn't last very long. I bought one of these a while before I build my system and was shocked at how cheap they were (price wise, build quality is outstanding for what they are). Windows kept constantly crashing with no BSOD. I ran some ram tests and it turned out that both modules were faulty.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I just got a pair of bad chips or some weird motherboard issue.I will RMA then soon and see what happens.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very good specs.Plays every game I throw at it at medium-high settings.
runs cool(Max I've ever seen it go is 55C)
i7 is very quick.

Cons: Plastic construction(But it feels very durable)
5400RPM Hard Drive can be a bit slow for me.

Other Thoughts: It's a good laptop for the price,I can say that.The price is good for the hardware that's included.Windows 8 is meh,
but I guess it's fine.
