GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 AM3+ ATX Motherboard Review

19 April 2012
  • Summary: There are very negatives about the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7. But they do exist. For example, I do not like the placement of the primary PCIe X16 slot as it makes it difficult to remove graphics cards when a large CPU cooler is in place. I also wish they would include six SATA 3.0 cables instead of just four like similarly priced AMD AM3+ motherboards. Finally, the price of $249.99 retail is a little on the expensive side compared to others on the market.

  • Summary: Well, where do I start? This has been a very impressive board from Gigabyte. It has the looks and the brains. And it certainly isn’t short on features. When this new line of AMD motherboards came out there seemed to be the impression that it really wasn’t going to offer too much over the previous chipset. To be honest this new chipset itself doesn’t offer a whole lot over the previous generation. Yes, you do get SLI support and dual-channel DDR3 support.

  • Conclusion: In many respects, the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 is similar to competing AM3+ boards. But with its support for up to four-way SLI and CrossFireX, it’s an excellent choice if you plan to build an extreme gaming PC that’s stacked to the max with high-end graphics cards.
  • Pros: Loaded with PCI Express x16 slots, Supports CrossFireX and SLI, Supports up to 10 SATA 6Gbps drives
  • Cons: BIOS is still text-based

  • Summary: The overall performance of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 wasn’t far off the competitor today. What really sold us on the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 was the overclocking! We have previously been unable to POST past 4.6GHz on our AMD FX-8150, on the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 we were able to boot into Windows 7 at 4.9GHz with all of the cores active!

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 motherboard

17 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Gigabyte is putting significant store in AMD's new FX chips by releasing seven 9-series boards armed with the AM3+ socket. The headline act is the 990FXA-UD7, which is a £200 board designed with the enthusiast firmly in mind. Presented in an eATX form factor and well-laid-out for a genuinely high-end offering, the UD7 can run four double-slot graphics cards for ultimate performance.

  • Summary: They say everyone makes mistakes. When I think of the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 I realize that truer words were never spoken. From start to finish my time with the 990FXA-UD7 was miserable. I just wanted the experience to end but with all the problems, working with the board took far longer than it should have. It is without a doubt one of the worst motherboards I’ve ever worked with.

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 Motherboard Review

12 July 2011
  • Summary: Every once in awhile you come across a motherboard that raises the bar on what an enthusiast board should be. It sets the standard for features and performance exceeding all your expectations. This type of board forces every board you see from that point to meet a higher standard in order to impress you. The Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 is not one of those boards.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7: Bulldozer Ready!

24 June 2011
  • Conclusion: As expected the latest AMD 990FX/SB950 shows no significant performance gain over the last generation chipset from AMD (890FX/SB850). The new chipset is essentially identical except it offers native support for Bulldozer and NVIDIA SLI. While we are disappointed that there is not a major update to the new chipset, especially with the lack of native USB 3.0, we are at least glad to see that AMD still continues with its backward compatibility support.

  • Excerpt: Over the coming months as we build up towards finally getting our hands on the Bulldozer platform, we'll no doubt be looking at plenty of 990FX based motherboards from companies. Having already looked at what ASUS offered us in their ROG Crosshair V Formula board, today we'll take the time to check out the GIGABYTE option.
