Quoted from Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 reviews & previews
"Even though the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 is mainly targeted to the forthcoming CPUs based on the AMD “Bulldozer” architecture, it is already available on the market, supporting current-generation CPUs."
"The Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 is a solid motherboard with a nice feature set for the AM3 and AM3+ processors."
"Overclocking on the 990FXA-UD5 was rather straight forward and once we remembered what was needed to make a Phenom clock we were off and running. Of course a Black Edition processor helps in the tweaking process but for those of you running retail CPUs it is important that a motherboard support high HyperTransport speeds. For our overclocking tests we could not run at 300HT but 250HT proved to be quite stable. The lower HT is not a problem when using a Black Edition processor however locked CPUs will be limited in their overclocking ability."
"I found the 990FXA-UD5 available online for an average price around $180. While not bad for a 990FX board with three-way graphics support, a similar equipped quad-graphics board like the UD7 or Sabertooth isn't that much more. Still, for those who want all the features of the 990FX/SB950 chipset but don't ever plan to run more than three cards, a small savings can be had here."
"AMD says Socket AM3+ will perform better with Bulldozer than socket AM3 but both the 890FXA and 990FXA carry Socket AM3+ and they performed virtually equal. This leads us to the conclusion there is no absolute need to upgrade from 890FXA to the 990FXA but if you are looking to build in preparation for Bulldozer, then we do recommend going with the 990FXA-UD5; it is a great choice if you don't need all the bells and whistles normally found on flagship motherboards. Coming in at $200 makes the Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 a very attractive package overall in terms of features, performance, and price."
