TechREACTION.net Review: Gigabyte GA 990FXA-UD5
This review took far longer than it should have. Blaming the new architecture and brand new chip is not even half of it though, and the change in testing location temporarily does not account for it, either. It straight boils down to how much fun this platform was to tweak and play around on. Every time it came to start benching it, a new idea came up and off again I would go corrupting another Windows install trying to run too fast and too tight on too little voltage.
That said, the Gigabyte UD5 is extremely easy to OC the old-fashioned way. Lately, boards have included a button to push to automatically OC your system. None of that is included here. In fact, you may want to avoid the Gigabyte Easy Tune software as well. If you want to soft-clock, use AMD overdrive.
