Summary: bought this motherboard along with other parts for my 12 year old grandson's birthday. When we got done with the build, Windows Experience showed CPU speed value of 7.4, Memory speed of 7.9, and disk speed of 7.9. This motherboard was capable of being the basis for building a serious high end computer.
Summary: I did a lot a research before I decided on what motherboard I was going to get, but I am glad I choose this one. I have had this motherboard for almost a year now and it is still working great. I love the new bios screen and like having the dual bios if one messes up during a bios update.
Flaky BIOS, flaky power, no diagostic indicators, dead after two months
24 April 2014
Summary: Got this board a couple months ago for a currency mining operation. I've been building PCs for 15+ years and most of my recent builds have involved Gigabyte boards. However, I think I'm done with Gigabyte as I think this board is indicative of a decline in quality many have been discussing elsewhere. Issues: Will not boot a USB flash drive equipped with Linux (I tried both debian and ubuntu images). Continuously reboots.
Summary: This board is solid, full of features, and only $135.99 at the time of purchase. The only downside is that it is not specified which revision it is. Luckily I happen to get the newest one rev4.0. The item description should be updated to display the version which will be shipped to the buyer.
Summary: it died after three months of use. it had problems from day one with crashing.The bios was changed and then it worked better for two weeks then started to crash. Gigabyte has done this to me before years ago. Save your money and dont buy any of the UD3's.Go to other sites and read the reviews, you will find there is lots of problems with this board.
Summary: So i just received my new in box GA-990FXA-UD3 and its a board only??? I cant find any photos or reviews to verify but every MB I've ever purchased came with the CD, Manual, Mounting Hardware and a sata cable..... Am i missing the joke? No where is this listed as a board only but it also says nowhere whats included in the box. Do I return it?
Summary: First, I got the Rev. 4.0 board, and it looks soooooo sweet. I have the board paired with an AMD FX-8320 CPU and a MSI GeForce GTX 660 OC Edition. I purchased this board in preparation of a SLI setup soon. This is my 5th Gigabyte motherboard and I must say that this is the best board I've bought. Installation was a breeze as usual. The UEFI BIOS takes a while to get used to, but once you do it's so sweeeet.
