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.

Summary: Very good board very solid.I got this MOBO for a friend of mine.I have the UD7 MOBO so there's not much difference other than my board has a digital code indicator on the board.Still very solid.
Summary: This board is awesome. I've been a huge ASUS motherboard fan, but after my last 3 boards failed, 2 died to old age and the 3rd was DOA out of the box. I decided to go with GIGABYTE, and I haft to say. It's a super solid board. No issues, BIOS is easy to use, lots of on board space, my only issue was the fac tthat one of the power plugs were in a awkward place where I had to adjust wires and hardware to be able to plug it in.
Summary: Not a problem noted on this GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 AMD 9 Series Motherboard. I installed a FX8350 CPU, AMD Vidio card 6670, 16 G of AMD Memory 2x8G, Turned it on and loaded OS and was done. I read all the reviews on everything that went into this Build. I recommend this MOB!!!!
