This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Well constructed, has good bios options for overclocking, ACControl, 8+2 power design, and ... was able to fit a cooler on the VRM's. Board came with f2 bios making it ready for my 1055t.
Cons: f3a bios has something to do with a sound fix but it messed up my ram timings and would not boot with previous set timings. weird thing went back to f2 bios everything good again G.skill ripjaws 1600 6-8-6-20 with 1055t 4.2ghz (14x300) (had no sound issues don't care about f3a bios)(maybe forgot to set ram to 1.6v cause it defaulted it to 1.5v)
Had a weird little issue with usb ports. I use wirless mouse/keyboard receiver uses usb port and when digital camera is hooked by front case usb my keyboard/mouse went dead. Swapped around usb cables from CM Storm case to motherboard fixed this issue with front case usb ports.
Was tired when I had these two issues so I consider it user error.
Other Thoughts: Bought a half dozen Gigabyte boards for builds and all of them have worked the first time and have been reliable.
No VRM cooling but aleast the holes are there for one to be added turning this into a good overclocking board.
