1 out of 5 eggs Dead after a few hours... 06/30/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Looks great aesthetically

Cons: Only worked for a few hours. I was in the process of installing drivers after initially installing the OS and during one of the restarts it died. No display and no POST beeps after that. I took the whole build apart twice and reassemlbled with no success. I swapped every other component (CPU, RAM, GPU, PSU) in the build to an older build and everything worked fine. Mobo is dead for sure. This board was anything but "ultra durable." What is unfortunate is that I purchased the components for this build separately over the course of a month or two to catch the best sales. I will never do that again! 30 days had passed before unboxing and assembly so will not accept return for replacement. It is day 53 since initial order and I am now at the mercy of the manufacturer. Who knows how long they will take to send me a new board. This is my first Gigabyte product and I am not at all satisfied thus far...
