Good motherboard 03/19/2014
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Works great with my FX8320 overclocked to 4Ghz without any additional voltage needed. (Your results may vary as no chip OC's the same of course)
The revision 4.0 board I received runs cool. Plenty of USB 3.0 ports and it's fast. Crossfire/SLI compatible and it comes with an SLI connector to run dual Nvidia GPU's.
UEFI bios is easy to understand,navigate,and use with the mouse or keyboard.
This motherboard feels well made and looks awesome with the black PCB and grey heatsinks.
No cons so far.
Your ram may default to 1333 or 1600Mhz in the UEFI but an easy switch to a XMP profile set the ram to the correct speed.
The motherboard takes a few seconds to POST beep when restarting,but this is due to me using Windows 7 instead of Windows 8.1.
I'm using a FX 8320 @ 4Ghz with CM Hyper 212Evo,8GB 1866Mhz Gkill ram,120GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD,2TB WD Black HDD,Gigabyte GTX 770OC,Corsair TX650V2 PSU in a Cooler Master HAF-922 case.
