It is now pretty clear that not every board will be able to max out the overclock of the octo-core FX series of processors. The power consumption gets pretty steep beyond a certain point, and even though the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 is a solid offering,...

It has been some time, probably not since the Athlon XP days, that I last used a Gigabyte motherboard. Judging by this latest 990FXA-UD5, they've come a long way since then. Gone is the blue PCB and multi-colored slots/sockets that I remember,...

Before we start taking a look at this new motherboard from Gigabyte let’s have a look at the chipset and what it has to offer. This new chipset isn’t really all that different from the 890FX and SB850. Many of the same features are still...

Das 990FXA-UD5 stellt direkt nach dem 990FXA-UD7 die Nummer zwei von Gigabytes aktuellen Mainboards für die AMD-Plattform. Gänzlich überzeugen konnte es allerdings nicht. So leistet man sich einfach zu viele Schwächen, angefangen bei...
