This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Don't know what others are complaining about as this board works great for me with no problems what so ever and I love the Bio's which is real nice for Overclocking! Have had it running for 4 months now and its great with 2 AMD cards in Crossfire mode.
Cons: As for me there's no cons except that most newer boards put up to 4 x16 PCI-E slots and only 2 run at x16 and if using 3 cards they run at x16 x8 x8 and the forth runs at x4. when they make a board with 4 x16 slots they all should run at x16 Hopefully in the future they would get the hint that in order for them to make more money from us is to make the 4 slots x16 so we can use 4 graphics cards without downgrading the graphics when using 3 or more cards? Then they would sell more graphics cards to us?
Other Thoughts: Running an Liquid cooled AMD 8320 X8 Core CPU with 2 single slot XFX 7770 Ghost cards in Crossfire mode at 4GHz working great. Most people can't afford the newest cards that cost around $1500 to $3000 dollars with 8 to 12 Gigs of memory or even the $400 to $600 cards are expensive for the price so when they come down in a year or more I may upgrade cards but need the prices to come way down so I could afford them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: I have always used Artic silver 5 since I had built my first system and its worked well for me as it lasted for the 5 years I had the board working. Just built another system for my gamming and used it on that also!
Cons: none that I can think of. People should just know how to apply this right to make it work well.
Other Thoughts: I had it on a board that lasted for 5 years and the Q6600 Quad Core CPU still works in another Intel motherboard so that tells you it outlasted the motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
