This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Got this back in Feb. All seems well I run it with lots of different things on different days - No issue at all seems like I got a revision 4 board. No heat issues. Nice darker color for the PCB and heat sinks - Goes well with my black case!
Cons: It seems odd but sometimes the board clocks the RAM to 1333mhz and other OS installs the RAM is at 1866.
Other Thoughts: AMD FX 8350 at 4GHZ water cooled with Cooler Master Seidon 120V

Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Full Tower Case
BitFenix Recon 5 channel Fan Controller
2X Sapphire Tech Vapor-X R9 270X GPUs - Crossfire - 2GB GDDR5 256-bit Mem Interface
Pros: I bought 2 of these a few months back and it has not given me any problems at all! Just make sure your system can power the beast. I have been able to play any game using crossfire just fine on max settings at 1080p! But in the end I find myself playing L4D2 and skyrim most of the time. Overclocking this card to 1.2ghz(1200mhz) is flawless - I also messed with the ram speeds and got it working fine at 1.6ghz(1600mhz) stays cool but in the end I have 2 of them so they are run at stock most of the time.
Other Thoughts: System:
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0ghz
2x R9 270X gpus in crossfire (This card)
32gb of DDR3 1866 memory (4 x 8gb G. Skill)
Kingston v300 2340gb ssd
2tb WD external desktop hdd.
Pros: This does everything I need it to do.
Cons: None at this time!
Other Thoughts: When I moved I had lost the extra cables for it - I am still unable to locate where to replace the parts - Same with the CM HAF 932 Advanced case I had got at the same time.READ FULL REVIEW
