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

Pros: Very Fast and Easy to setup. The software setup was super simple.
The quality of the board was really good.

Cons: The Green Audio Port on the board went out last week. The Head phone port on the PC Case works just fine. I checked drivers and Bios updates but nothing has worked.

ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The features are awesome. You can over-clock/unlock processor cores really easy. I really enjoyed working with this board.

Cons: When I First received it, I felt like the package had been opened and used. There were fingerprints all over the back of the MB, and it just didn't feel right. There were also some prongs on the MB for fan power that were bent. Despite these visual issues, I installed it anyway with high hopes. Everything seemed fine at first the, the OS went in fine and drivers installed correctly. but then the PC would lock up every 2 min. and every once in a while it would blue screen. I tested every piece of hardware, tried a new Hard drive, my old graphics card, different memory, made sure the board was not OC at that moment. I even reinstalled that OS same results. I traced the problem to the NB over heating. I also updated the Bios. after all of this the MB then quite recognizing any hard drives that i had plugged in. So I had to RMA the board, after trouble shooting for up to 10 hours. (2 different days)

Other Thoughts: I have all ways loved ASUS, especially there laptops. From what i remember there customer service was in the U.S. When i shop for a MB i always go to ASUS or GYGABYTE. The only problem now is having to wait for the new MB (I hope this one is not previously opened) for about 2 weeks
