This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Looks Cool, lots of USB ports built pretty solid
Cons: only works when it want to.
you have to hit to reset the power 5-6 time before it will even POST. then if you need to restart for any reason you have to rest it 5-6 more times its really annoying
Other Thoughts: this may be a single issue but reading online and it seems that others have had the same issue with this MOBO. i will not hold anything against Gigabyte but when it come to part you only get 1 chance with me and i am very displeased with this motherboard. i personally know others who have had great success with this but its a no go for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs great, fast CPU, fast GPU, comes with driver disk with a few fairly usefull programs. Plays games well. super quick boot time when used with SSD
Cons: you have to take the almost entire bottom off just to get at the hard drive. runs hot( but thts expected with an i7) milddly bulky. display enclosure loose in some places
Other Thoughts: i installed a WIN7 restore image from my old laptop on here and got BSOD 2 or 3 time before windows would actually boot. but when i put clean install on hav no problems now.
ASUS ExpressGate is a really great feature. allows you to surf the net listen, listen to music, chat on skype, and a few other thing without having to load windows, and it requiers a lot less system usage
