Summary: Should have gotten this mobo first. Got it's older brother first and kicked myself as the older model (the GA-870A-UD3) is not SLI compatible. This mobo is. I have had no issues with this install. The Bios interface has a mouse on it as well, which makes it a little nicer to deal with... looks a little more high-tech. Great board, no issues at all.
Summary: I recently upgraded from an FX-6300 and a 7870 GHz so I wanted a new motherboard to properly run my new FX-8350 for the 8+2 power phase. I'm running with two R9 290's and I have not had a single issue with that setup. The board also supports another 290 if I ever decide to get one. Overclocking isn't an issue of course, and my 8350 has been pushed to 4.7 GHz with no problem. I could go higher, but I haven't had a need for it yet.
Summary: I am glad I purchased this motherboard. It was inexpensive (compared to other companies), works great & allows me to go in a lot of different ways with add-ons & configurations. Excellent purchase!
Summary: Pros: -Capable of 3-way SLI (or crossfire) -8 SATA3 ports, with the ability to run multiple RAID arrays -Fully loaded back panel Cons: -Northbridge heatsink obstructs top PCI-E x1 slot; cards that extend past the slot itself will probably not fit -If you use 3-way graphics, and your bottom-most card is double-wide, it will obstruct the headers (USB, front audio, etc) on the bottom, although I'm not sure this is avoidable My experience: Motherboard was DOA, but Amazon was...
Summary: Great updated motherboard for an AMD 1100T. This motherboard may have an older chip running it [older BIOS format], but now my SSD and 6 HDDs are now running in unison...not as fast as my i7, but faster than my i5 with no OC'ing yet. This board has everything I needed and my Antec 920 water block has room to breath...which is a good thing. No complaints or wishes for anything more...this board is great in my newly built HTPC.
Summary: my build is amd 8350, 990fxa ud5, 780gtxti, corsair h80i, i have this procesor overcloked at 5 gh ultra stable i didnt have one blue screen, and the best of the best my temps in full load is 35 at idle is 11 i cant believe , i m sooooooooooooo happy, i dont have any vdrop or things like that
Summary: After two attempts to buy an Asus motherboard, both of which arrived DOA, I finally ordered one of these. Since I am replacing an older Gigabyte board, I will be familiar with all of its quirks, installation procedures and BIOS (which is nearly identical to my previous board). This one fired up immediately, so I was able to FINALLY have a computer that works.
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD.
