Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7 (AMD 990FX) Review

The Gigabyte bios is a ‘traditional' design, not one of the newer UEFI implementations. That said, it is fully loaded and offers a wealth of fine tuning and overclocking options. Most of the enthusiast audience will be spending the majority of their time in the MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) panel.

Above are a selection of screenshots taken from the bios. We tested the bios with both the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition and the Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition and there were no problems to report.

Overclocking via this board is as good as any of the other 990FX boards we have tested in the past. With a Noctua NH D14 fitted we managed to push the 980 and 1100T to 4.4ghz and 4.3ghz respectively. These are basically the limits of the specific chips with air cooling and as good as we could expect without moving to high end watercooling or phase change.
