    111 one star reviews on new egg for 990fXA-UD3

    I've been a gigabyte for a long time. I am not exclusive to them, but I've used them probably more than any manufacturer. In fact I think one of my first boards back on socket 7 with a k62 CPU was them, and plenty of socket a builds were done with them. I've actually had more trouble with...

    Any FM2+ ITX boards out yet?

    Very true my bad for missing the +. I just ordered components for my first mini itx build ever with a FM2 gigabyte board. I'm looking forward to building something so small. I am a little disappointed in not finding any that fit the thin standard for ultra compacts, but still this system...

    Any FM2+ ITX boards out yet?

    Newegg has a couple now. This gigabyte one looks nice. The built in wifi is nice IMO too. Jason

    troubleshooting assistance needee

    Woohoo this was fixed! For some reason an old SATA hard drive plugged into the board was causing all of the problems sine receiving the RMA'ed motherboard. Now with that old hard drive unplugged, it is running like a champ. Jason

    Finally upgraded - Windows 8 to Windows 7, a gamers point of view

    I had some similar experiences. I didn't mind using Windows 8 but I had two main problems. The first was hibernate didn't work for me. The second was gaming performance. I even upgraded to a new video card thinking that my old 4850 just couldn't drive the new 1080P monitor that I had picked...

    Can I reuse this processor?

    I'm still using this CPU in my gaming PC and it has been a champ for me for years. And yea it should work nicely with that board.

    Advice: Can I use this CPU with this ex-HP mobo?

    Yea I would bet that it would work just fine. And wow that is a tiny AMD board. It isn't too common to see Mini ITX AMD boards. Good luck with your build! Jason

    Blazing [H]ot: FFVII and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced $5 each on Steam

    I actually have the old original PC version of FF VII (and VIII) I think for Windows 95 or 98. Too bad I can't just activate that on steam and get the steam version compatible with 7. Jason

    Best Budget 955 X4 Motherboard

    I really like my Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H motherboard. I use it for a different application though. I know that it has core unlocker support (not sure if your CPU is a candidate for that) and plenty of overclocking capabilities, but due to my CPU not having an unlocked multiplier I haven't...

    troubleshooting assistance needee

    Alright guys I am at my wits end and am looking for troubleshooting recommendations for a build I'm working on. Here are the components: AMD A8 5600K MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 8GB DDR3 No matter what I've done I'm receiving memory errors in memtest86+. I have three different brands and speeds...

    Phenom II a cpu bottleneck starting where?

    Lots of good information. I read an article lately (I think over at that talks about gaming with older CPUs to see where the limiting factor would be. I cannot remember if there were any Phenom II's on the list, but it seemed back then that it was better to spend the $ on...

    Phenom II a cpu bottleneck starting where?

    I am in a similar boat. I have a Phenom II X6 that has been running pretty nice for some time. I haven't been able to get myself to part with it yet. Its been a curiosity of mine though, but I think it is still good enough lately. Jason

    eVGA 131-K8-NF44-AX NF4 SLi mATX Mobo Thread

    I have one of these boards with bad caps. I might have the I/O panel for it too. Let me know if interested still. I'm not on here much often anymore but I just noticed this and thought that I'd pass the information. Jason

    Should I go with Vista 64 or XP pro with my new Phenom build?

    It more than likely wouldn't make much of a difference unless you are planning on doing any DX10 gaming in my opinion. I currently run XP64 and I am going to move to Vista x64 soon, mainly because of stupid Photoshop CS4. It will use GPU rendering on Vista x64 but not XP64. Before that I had...
