The 970A-UD3 motherboard is designed to offer a stable, high-speed platform for delivering amazingly fast data transfer via the GIGABYTE 333 onboard acceleration technologies. Featuring the USB3.0 controller, AMD 900 series motherboards allow users to take advantage of super fast USB transfer rates of up to 5Gbps, delivering 10x faster data transfer compared to USB 2.0. Utilizing the industry's first Serial ATA Revision 3.0 solution via AMD SB950 chipset, GIGABYTE AMD 900 series motherboards offer native 6 ports of next generation high speed data storage devices support with data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10.

Great product

Been using this for over a year and i have my AMD 8350 @ 4.8 Ghz
8 Gb RAM @ 1866 Mhz no problem.
overall very happy with a purchase, hope it will last me a long time.
Another thing my BIOS didn't need the update to boot up the system and i had the AMD 4100 at the time, but updated once i had everythyng up and running:)

Quality Board

Despite this board being a full atx and compatible with all operating systems. its let down by the fact that the start up times on this is very slow going through all the bios information, whereas the foxconn ela i had before loaded instant. overall the board is really decent and its well worth the

WARNING

Great, solid motherboard, but be aware that if you plan to use an FX (Bulldozer) CPU or another newer model, you will need to update the BIOS on this motherboard prior to installing this CPU for it to work, as it will not boot!

Also, to do this, you will need to install an older compatible CPU to update the BIOS.

OCUK failed to state this on the page, so I learn't the hard way, hope no-one else makes the same mistake.

Feature Packed Mobo

I'd love to give this 5 stars but there seems to be a problem with the AHCI drivers and Windows 7 (Using a WD1002FAEX HDD). Consistant hangups and slow downs. Runs perfect with the Windows 7 standard AHCI drivers though.
