GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: All black PCB...

Cons: BIOS sucks on this board....temp sensors are ether very cheap or bios/firmware need major work cant get usable/consistent temps from any program or the bios....north bridge and vrm heat sinks use a poorly designed mounting solution...back I/O plate does not set right at all...some settings seem missing or not right (no cpu core voltage only offset which does not seam to work new of a board to be with out a UEFI....has realtek chips (LAN and Audio)....TPM port is useless because no one (even gigabyte) seams to sell TPM modules....the 990FX chips set runs leavel of fan control (PWM or not) wish SATA ports were more buying ASUS or MSI form now on....

AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 8-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8120FRGUBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap compared to Intel...8 threads 3+ Ghz....better them my old computers 2.8Ghz single-core Celeron pga 478 cpu...

Cons: Had to find any program that reads it temps.... throttles all the time even when computer is doing nothing....runs hotter the i would like even with TX-2 and a H2O 620 cooler....should have went with intel or older amd for first build

Other Thoughts: My next build is going to have a lot more research done (more then the week and a half i did this time) on it and will more in likely be a Intel

Blue tooth Bluetooth V4.0 LE, V3.0+HS, V2.1+EDR

Other Thoughts: Works great for networking my room and fit with the look of my GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 mobo. I had to remove a egg just because of it being deactivated right before i got my pay check.
