1 out of 5 eggs Revised Comments Gigabyte GA990FXAUD3 10/09/2014

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

Pros: None

Cons: Motherboard developed a bios flicker for lack of a better word. Problems from the start. After working with it for some time to try to isolate it, talking to GIgabyte they had me up grade bios chip. Problem was not resolved. Changes to the bios that were saved changed back to former numbers. Board finally got stuck in a loop of Bios open, close, restart, blow off, Bios open again.

Other Thoughts: RMA was very smooth with NewEgg since I was in the first 30 days. If you get a board that gets stuck in a loop call Gigabyte first for advice. If that does not work its the Bios Chip. My son gave me a old board that would run the AMD 9000 series AMD chip and all my gear fine. It was a Extream9 by AsRock. Rock solid since I put it in. AMD FX9370 220watt CPU and 32gb of ram. Nvida new EVGA GTX 760 with a RM750 Corsair Power Supply, Kingston SSD's. NOT over clocked. Win score 2@7.8 all the rest @ 7.9. 4.4onCPU and 18666 on ram. Stable and Fast (no heat problems with air cooling only (custom CPU Fan). All NewEgg Parts. Happy with final system but not this Motherboard......Son said no OC on this AsRock Extream9 board; with out water cooling and he was right.........Happy, Happy, Happy = as they say on the Duck Commander Show!

Pros: Did work out of the box. Was really picky about CPU and Memory. Check generation of board before you buy. Older ones like this one will run a max AMD FX CPU 8350 but not the 9000series that needs 220 watt socket. THE NEW GENERATION OF THIS BOARD WILL RUN 220 watt 9000 AMD series. Check before you buy to see which one is being sold.

Cons: Older boards are not as well made as new ones. The new one will run the 220w CPU. The one I got will not as it was old stock. My fault for not checking generation of board.

Other Thoughts: Good customer service with Gigabyte. Helped me get the bugs out with update to Newest Bios. AMD's chips have a max speed for memory no matter what speed you buy. Some are only 16000 others are 18666. Depends on chip and weather you use 2 slots or 4.
