"In the end, the GIGABYTE GA-MA790FXT-UD5P AM3 790FX motherboard is still a mouthful to say. However, it’s a great asset to have in your system. The features included will be helpful to most any user. It’s performance numbers are right where they should be, and it’s a great overclocker that is capable of setting world records. In fact I’m impressed enough that this motherboard is going to be the basis for the ultimate system I’ll be building for this year’s Fragapalooza LAN event."
"This is a classic top model, as its status is maintained primarily by the lavish set of peripheral interfaces. Indeed, one can hardly add anything else to the abundance of interfaces on the rear panel (including the eSATA bracket). This motherboard also comes up to overclocking expectations, providing enough BIOS settings, as well as the praiseworthy stability of the overclocked system."
"The Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P was a fun board to work with. It is a board that overclocks great, performs very well and continues the quality that Gigabyte has been known for."
"From a platform point of view the Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P motherboard fits the bill as a motherboard that supports AMD's latest CPUs on the AM3 platform including the 810 we used for this review. Features-wise this board has all of the features that an enthusiast will want from a new AM3 motherboard except for one. For those expecting to run three or four ATI cards in CrossfireX mode will be disappointed as this board only has two PCI Express x16 slots but that is not the target audience of this board. Performance on the board was exemplary with performance that is higher than some of the other boards I've tested. Gigabyte has done a great job with this board. Overclocking on the board allowed it to reach 3.25GHz, on the 810, an excellent 25% overclock on air cooling and default voltages."
"Overall, I jugde that the MA790FXT-UD5P is worth its price. One thing though, it would have been definitely better if it had more than two PCI-E x16 slots. This I think would have been a major difference between it and the MA790XT-UD4P. Yes, it can run them both at x16 and not at x8, but with PCI-E 2.0 specifications doubling bandwidth over the previous generation, there is not much difference between the two configurations. Also, it means Tri-fire or Quad-fire is not possible if you don't have a dual-GPU card. And what if you wanted to build a big folding farm? Once again, no more than two graphics cards. But still, it's a great board!"
