4.0 out of 5 stars Great motherboard to have but with a few niggles 23 July 2011
By Vardant
Verified Purchase
This is the first AM3/AM3+ motherboard I have purchased. Of all the other manufactuers out their, I have decided on Gigabyte because I have tried Asus, ECS and Foxconn (all of them S939 platforms) in the past but were pretty average bordering on disappointing in the past.

The motherboard is standard ATX so swapping out by old mATX board in my P180 case was very straight forward. The board is very well laid out and installing everything I had was very easy. Turning it on for the first time is where the fun (in a hair pulling kind of way) begins. Like most people nowadays I use a USB keyboard. So failing to get into the BIOS by hitting the [DEL] key stumped me completely. It turns out that USB keyboard support is very flaky on the inital BIOS revision. Gigabyte have since released a beta BIOS that resolves this problem. The only way I could get round this was to dig out an old PS2 keyboard and set my system up this way. I updated the BIOS via windows and this seemed the most straight forward for me and everything is working like it should. I am running windows 7 (64 bit) and it has been rock solid.

There is one thing of note though. I have installed 16GB of RAM which comprised of 4x 4GB sticks (it's overkill I know, but RAM seems to be cheap at the moment). The RAM I selected was Corsair's new Vengeance series. This RAM has very tall fins, so if you are using an aftermarket cooler it may not fit. The stock AMD coolers fit with only a couple mm clearance from the RAM. I am using a Zalman CNPS9900 which fits very well and has ample clearance from the RAM. Just something to keep in mind.

Also, I have noticed that the northbridge heatsinks can get a bit warm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality product. 28 Feb 2012
This is the 2nd motherboard of the 990FXA series I have bought. The 1st was the `little brother' of this board the 990FXA-UD3 and even though the UD3 is an excellent board the PCIE16x16 slots were too close together for my Crossfire setup of 2 x Radeon HD5870s with Artic Twin Coolers attached (each card takes up 3 slots). So this UD7 was the only board in the 990FXA series which had good spacing between the 16x16 slots.
The motherboard comes packaged, IMO, like a child's toy. It is a huge box with a plastic carrying handle. The front of the box actually opens like the cover of a book to reveal a cellophane window through which you can see the motherboard inside, all very glam. After opening the box, then another box, removing a cardboard section and motherboard you get to the accessories. Plenty of stuff here. You get 2 x SATA data cables, 2 x Crossfire/SLI bridges (long, black), an IDE cable, manuals and driver disc. Time to build...
This board is an eATX (extended ATX) which is 2cm wider than a standard ATX, this should pose no problems to the average ATX case. Plenty of securing holes, 9 in all. I recommend building in a well lit room because the board is black and the screws are black (+ my case is black) it can be a hit and miss sometimes when trying to screw things down. I found myself reaching for a torch every now and again. I always try, not always possible depends on case, to attach the front panel connecters (i.e. power switch, reset switch, etc), before putting the board inside the case as it is much easier to manage, which I did. All components installed and wired up time to power up...this part I hate but thankfully hardware has come a long way since Win95.
Success! Straight into BIOS to set up my RAM timings, 1866mhz for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars GB-990FXA-UD7 Gigabyte M/B EXCELLENT 10/10+ 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
I am very happy with this buy.
The GA-990FXA-UD7 MB has exceeded my expectations in every way.

This motherboard Comes packaged inside a larger box protected with airbags, the actual MB box itself protected with fancy flip-front display panel and packaged with foam/Antistatic bag, etc.

There is an assortment of extra components provided like Screws, clips, X2 SATA3 cables (Black) SLI and CF Bridges (Double/Tripple/Quad) types.

Firstly, this MB comes with a BIOS already Flashed to the latest Firmware version (F8) which enables additional O.C. features (Higher RAM timing profiles) etc.

The orientation and positioning of the Ports and PCIE slots offer maximum flexibility for a decent xFire / SLI Setup. There is plenty of room of future expansion. The OnBoard quick reset switches are covered with a protective transparent cap which stops accidentally rebooting your box when working inside the case, which is a nice feature.

The O/B Realtek HD sound card is more than acceptable for watching Hi-Def movies 24bit/192khz Offers SPIF/Optical, 7.1 outputs and all the rest of it. It also comes with Dolby Home Theater software, which sound great!
I can use Ableton Live & Virtual DJ without any problems even when under heavy load without any audio signals dropping out whilst using the OnBoard sound.

A nice dark PCB surface (Black) colour with Orange popping out makes it look at home inside my Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Chassis.

Easy Over Clock your CPU and RAM. This is achieved with ease either via the BIOS settings or through the AMD Software from your desktop. I am currently running AMD Bulldozer FXA 8120 @ 4.1Ghz 16GB Corsair Vengance RAM @ 1600Mhz (I could push it higher) but happy with this setup. Everything is Stable.
