Sapphire Pure Black 990FX Motherboard Review

Hi Tech Legion
3 January 2012
  • Summary: At a price point of $179.00, the Sapphire Pure Black 990FX falls into the Mainstream category for motherboards. At stock speeds, overall performance of the Sapphire Pure Black 990FX was excellent in every aspect. OC performance was also very good on the hardware side. However, a stable OC was more difficult to achieve than on many other boards, and included utilities lacked the power for easy or effective tweaking using software methods.
  • Pros: Excellent Layout of Commonly Used Components, Excellent Build Quality, Excellent Heatsink Cooling on All Major Components, Nine SATA III Connectors, Dual Gigabit LAN, Dual BIOS, Excellent Performance, Extremely Stable, Onboard Bluetooth, 7.1 Surround Sound With Digital Out, Included USB 3.0 Adapter Fits In 3.5" Drive Space
  • Cons: Excessive V-Droop Neccessitates Higher Voltages for OC, No Load Line Calibration Adjustment, Voltage Sensor Highly Inaccurate With Included and Aftermarket Software, Included Bundle and Documentation Should Be More Complete, Included TRIXX Software Is Not Black Edition Ready, Placement of Voltage Reading Ports Leaves Them Basically Unusable, No Profiles Available In BIOS For One Click Profile Changes

  • Excerpt: AM3+-bundkortet, der trods navnet sjovt nok har en brunlig farve, baserer på AMD’s 990FX-chipsæt. Der er rigeligt med pci-e-stik på dette bundkort. Hele seks fysiske pci-e ×16-slots findes på kortet. De to er pci-e ×16, to er reelt pci-e ×8 og de sidste to pci-e ×4. Dette bundkort mangler bestemt heller intet i bekvemme løsninger: Start-, reset- og ’clear cmos’-knapper findes på bundkortet lige til at gå til.
