We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.


As for the testbed itself, nothing has changed since the last 990FX board we looked at with our trusty Phenom II X6 1100T being used today. Before we get into the performance side of things, though, the first thing we need to do is look at overclocking and see how we went with our GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7.




We ended up getting our 1100T to just over 4.1GHz with the final clock coming in at 4125MHz via a 250MHz FSB. This was a strong overclock and one of the better we've achieved with our 1100T.


With everything up and running, it's time to see just what kind of performance we can achieve with the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 at both stock and overclocked against a couple of other extra AMD boards we've been using recently.
