The 990FXA-UD3 isn’t without its quirks and omissions however. Most of the software is not enjoyable to use, and although it looks to be built similarly to the software we liked to use on Gigabyte’s Intel boards, some of it just didn’t work on this board. Both CloudOC and EasyTune6 wouldn’t save settings. Also, the laggy “Touch BIOS” Windows interface is a poor substitute for a true EFI interface. Those minor issues aside, this is a great board to build a no-frills AMD rig on, and will be able to take your CPU as far as it can go with air or water cooling, so we’ll award it with our “Recommended Mid-Range Hardware” award.
