Summary: I had been under the impression that Gigabyte made a superior motherboard, how ever I have purchased two 890GPA-UD3H boards in the last 9 months only to have them fail. I purchased the second because I had to send the first in for waranty repair. It was that or be without a PC for a month because I purchased them from Amazon.com. Gigabyte repaired the board without question but still the time factor was very annoying.
Summary: At first glance, this motherboard seems to be a great option when you want to use a last generation AMD CPU, that is, one not too expensive and that fits the needs of almost any normal person. But I'll tell you a few reason why I don't like this motherboard: 1. The BIOS manages SATA devices as IDE devices, which it makes difficult to differentiate between proper SATA drives and IDE drives.
Summary: . Youngster More Information I recently purchased a 890GPA-UD3H rev 2.1 motherboard and want to know why there are so many revisions of the same board with no firmware changes (1.0-3.0), and each revision has a different bios update. I can't get any strait answers from support. So I hope someone can give me a resonable explanation. I graduated from college in 1979 with EE degree and the answers I get from Gigabyte support insult my intelligence.
Summary: Great mo-bo, when it works. One board has two bad memory slots, the other would only start sometimes. I was using a 1kw corsair PSU for this board. Both of them would be used in my work environment Same PSU, same cpu and same memory. I even swapped them all around. still no change. Going for a biostar board next.
