GA-890GPA-UD3H is a decent motherboard, but, frankly speaking, Gigabyte has somewhat spoilt us by previous bestsellers based on AMD integrated chipsets. The today's motherboard doesn't look as excellent as Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H or Gigabyte...

Although the 890GPA-UD3H has options for more minute control for overclocking, I didn’t find much headroom; I got the same overclock results by simply playing with the CPU multiplier than by juggling the many system-wide elements, such as voltages and...
