This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Relatively cheap. Supports AM3 and AM3+ which was the only reason I bought this. (Still holding onto my Phenom II)
Cons: No built in fan control. (Doesn't work with speed fan) Workmanship is average... the back panel doesn't flush up against the case. It's letting some dust in.
Other Thoughts: Ok motherboard but buy only if you need the AM3 support. Coming from an Asus Crosshair Formula II this felt like a bit of a downgrade in terms of features.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast. Works. Great deal at $75. Just buy this...
Cons: None. Short of a Velicaraptor this is the best you can buy within a reasonable budget.
Other Thoughts: After formatting you end with about 596 gbs. Nothing you can do about that though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing timings, installed without a hitch. With 5-4-4-12 timings, this is pretty much the fastest 800 DDR2 ram you can buy. If you are really looking for that extra little bit, the G.Force PI Black's run at 4-4-4-12... but those are an extra $15 so you can decide if it's worth it.
Cons: Wait for the rebate. Without it at $55 its still a great deal, but with the 10 dollar rebate at $45 this is an absolute steal. Buy it and don't look back.READ FULL REVIEW
