Pros: -Can use an "Optional" 40mm fan to actively cool VRM's (great for water cooled systems)
-UEFI (not all 990fx boards have it) which allows for amazing boot times if setup correctly
-M.2 Socket for additional storage options (you do sacrifice a SATA port - only has "5" onboard)
-Supports all "FX" processors (using an 8350 currently)

Cons: -Still no PCI-Express 3.0 support (but supported on FM2+ mainboards)
-Based on old platform
-Even my old P5E Delux (still using it) came with the optional fan ASUS!!!

Other Thoughts: Its simple. I had a GA990FXA-UD3 (rev 1.1 although they are up to 4.0 last I checked). That board would NOT play nice with my newly minted XFX Fury X - random graphic glitches/ post logo was HEAVILY corrupted. I traced it all to the motherboard after testing the card on other systems. My system is housed in an U2-UFO case so heat was never an issue. This R3.0 board fixed EVERYTHING and I love the added features (minus not having the PCI-E3.0 support). I did spring for the fan but for nearly $200, it should have been included. So, if you are like me and have already invested money into an AM3+ setup and either need a replacement motherboard or need the features that the R3.0 offers, give this one a try.

SYBA 5.25

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Ability to use 2.5/3.5 SDD/HDD in one 5.25 cage, front 3.0 USB ports!

Cons: Dim activity lights and small on-off switch for power.

Other Thoughts: I have purchase two of these and both had the USB ports fail after a period of time. Using a GA990FXA-UD3 and have no issues using the 20pin port for other USB3.0 hardware/ports... Other than that, they worked great and continue to do so.

Seagate Momentus XT ST750LX003 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5

Pros: Speed, Price

Cons: Bad sectors after less than 3 years use.

Other Thoughts: Purchased two of these drives from Newegg 3/21/2012 for home use (some gaming/video editing)... As of 3/10/2015, one drive has bad sectors. Seatools was able to repair/move data from these bad sectors and this has allowed me to boot/backup my computer... Good drive but it should last LONGER than the warranty - Not Less...
