Not a long lasting one 4/13/2015 7:00:19 PM

Pros: Good design. Sturdy.

Cons: Died after less than 5 years. I have several ASUS mobos that I ourchased at NewEgg in 2007 and they're still running. This motherboard is of much superior design and construction compared with the ASUSes, however, it died on me after less than 5 years. No POST, no BEEPS, tried everything from changing the battery to clearing CMOS, to no avail. I have to replace it, but now I'm thinking before buying another Gigabyte product.

Good overall 11/21/2012 2:15:35 PM

Pros: Good board, sturdy for the most part, easy overclocking tools in the BIOS for anyone that does that, seems to be solid, and is still running real well and i've had it since april of 2010

Cons: Reason I gave it 4 eggs is because 2 of my sata ports on the inside stopped working within the first year. There are 6 of them so it isn't a big deal really, but I would hope they wouldn't have gone bad so soon. I found out because my dvd drive stopped working so i ordered another, and it didn't work when plugged into the same sata port, changed to the port group next to it, and both worked fine

Overall Review: Good board overall, if i weren't ever planning on upgrading, i would definitely purchase it again

great 1/30/2012 8:50:15 PM

Pros: No problems whatsoever so far

Cons: Best motherboard i have owned so far :)

Overall Review: I have treated this board badly and its still going strong as a really well made motherboard should. I saw the MB comments and thought what a load of cr** a few people have written i better put my two cents worth in.

Now back to upgrading the peripherals. :) mmm SSD

Pros: Worked fine for 9 months. Looks nice.

Cons: After 9 months, the computer started to randomly spin up all fans and reboot. After reboot would usually be fine for the rest of the day. Upgraded to a Phenom II X6, worked for 2 days and started the same problem. Then deteriorated into BSOD and now wont boot at all. I've replaced ram and power supply, now it's either Mobo or GPU's. Pretty sure it's mobo from reading similar accounts on here.

Great board 11/9/2011 9:20:50 PM

Pros: Great features, Good on board components, solid, problem free so far.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I have had several Gigabyte Mobo's and have had very, very few problems with them. I've considered other motherboards, and have used some others in other builds for friends or family. It seems like I have less problems with Gigabyte and Asus than any other. I don't see a reason to switch from something that works.

GA-790XTA-nonUD4 3/21/2011 12:14:57 PM

Pros: Nice board, USB3.0 and SATA III.

Cons: I bought this board from NE but never have time to put a system together until my 30 days expired. I realize the board isn't working out of the brand new box, installing windows 7 Ultimate x64 took as much as 3 hours...not so bad...After installation complete the machine won't boot pass the windows initialize screen, never able to get to the login screen then went to BSOD.

Okay, so I suspect there's bad RAM. I replaced with the Corsair Memory which shown in the Gigabyte support list, again....this hellmary went BSOD after a long installing windows 7. So I tried 32bit installation...same result, contacted Gigabyte's support. No solutions, I ended scrap the brand new board and pay for the ASUS board.

Overall Review: How could Gigabyte putting the UD4 part of the board's name when this thing is a total piece of cr@p. Not reliable to be "Ultra Durable". I will never trust the Gigabyte brand anymore.....Asus is actually the real deal in motherboard industry. I also thanks NE for their best support and there's nothing they can do against their return policy.

More start up problems with this board!! 2/20/2011 3:47:36 PM

Pros: Showed lots of promise.

Cons: I bought this mobo in April 2010 and it looked promising until I started having boot problems. Often, it will look like my system is coming out of sleep since the lights come on, as do the fans, etc. But in less than a second it dies! Then I have to flip the switch on the back of my PSU and leave it "off" for ~ 10 seconds before I flip it to "on" and can boot up normally. This also occurs on cold boots!

I recently swapped out the PSU thinking that was the problem but had no luck. Gigabyte, if you are reading this we expect better of you! I certainly hope you will step up to the plate and replace this mobo, and not with a refurbished unit as this is just inheriting someone else's problems!

Overall Review: As you can see, other Newegg customers have had this exact problem so it appears to be a design flaw! A replacement with a NEW revised board should be made for this defective model!

Also, if I get a response from Gigabyte I hope I do not get the standard copy and paste response that everyone else has received.

GA-790XTA-UD4 2/10/2011 9:17:01 AM

Pros: Works great. I liked so much that I bought the second one to build HTPC machine. It's been 12 months since the first one was built which has been running 10 hours a day everyday. The second one(HTPC machine) has been running since 10/2010. This one has to run with the sleep mode disabled to do internet TV recording scheduled for overnight period.

Cons: If you want to use non-stock cpu heatsink and RAM sticks with heatsinks, then the RAM sticks for the slot #1 and #2 may have to be installed before the cpu is installed.
I sometimes had difficulty to communicate with the tech support reps which seemingly due to language barrier.
