A Futurelooks News Flash - GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 AM3+ ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 9:39A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a solid AMD board from GIGABYTE ... * * *GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 AM3+ ATX Motherboard Review* It was a busy end of the year with all the new product releases and announcements. We saw the release of the new AMD FX processor lineup which did not fair well overall, but still serves me well in my personal rig. However, a CPU is only as great as the motherboard to which you pair it. While many sites used the AMD issued ASUS Crossfire V 990FX boards for their initial reviews (a great board I might add) we were able to use something different for our tests. The GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 we found to be a very competent board, but let?s take a closer look to find out what else this motherboard brings to the table."
