Pros: works great and 3c expert shipped immediately, red wrist band that came with it make it easier to spot as it's black and small
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Like getting a new car you can put your old parts on and add some new ones. came from a 990 fxa ud3 rev. 3. New board has better power phase, kinda. I really like the m.2, the supported pcie slots and the better cooling for chips and power phase. Plenty of fan headers but I use controller.
Cons: I was able to get cpu (fx 8350) to 4.6 stable with a modest bump of voltage (1.4125) 4.7 with the UD3 same volt. I am having a boot issue when there is a usb device plugged in front panel: It gets to "press delete for bios" screen then hangs for a few seconds and shuts off. If I don't have anything occupying front panel usb, it starts normal. Also, I was new when it came to m.2, the slot is meant for a type 'M', although I got a type 'B+M' sata, it worked. speed Is the same as a regular cabled ssd, please do your homework on type of m.2 your mobo supports. [Update]: This boards Bios is unstable. When I first got the board it wouldn't go past logo until I cleared cmos several times, I thought it was from the usb drive I had with win x on it. now at 3 weeks with it anytime I change a setting from stock clocks in bios, it fights me just to get it to boot to windows. I feel if gigabyte gives an update to bios it will probably be fine. I see another user is having problems also.
Other Thoughts: I originally bought the board to help my bro-in-law, but turns out he didn't need it, oh well i'll use it ;)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO M.2 250GB SATA III Internal SSD Single Unit Version MZ-N5E250BW
Pros: I had no problems with motherboard recognizing it at first boot, Loaded Win 7 and then upgraded to Win X without a hitch. Seq. read and write are as advertised. It doesn't block airflow from intake fans of course.
Cons: I'm having problems trying to reach 'up to' advertised iops speeds, I've tried Magician, and Primocache and it tops out around 75,000 read. I've tried to overclock cpu to 4.7ghz (gives an improvement of about 5,000).
Other Thoughts: make sure to download 4.95 Magician. I couldn't enable rapid mode in win 10 with older version. It may not reach 'up to' speeds but it's fast enough for me as I am a casual pc user. Make sure you understand the different sockets for m.2 and that this will work on your board. this is a 'Sata ssd', if you want faster than what you may have attached to your regular sata ports by a cable than you neede a 'Pcie gen 2 or 3 x4 M.2' . look at the type- B or M or B+M. This is B+M. it will fit in 'M' but give 'B' speeds if your board supports Sata M.2. good luck and understand first.READ FULL REVIEW
