I have had a 990FXA-UD5 rev 1 (no LLC) motherboard since last summer, only had some short term problems with the BIOS available then, has been running good since last November, only a bit of an issue with that version's voltage droop on processor, since worked around OK. Figured out how to run it nicely due to reading this forum from the 1st page. The tips & advice from the excellent experienced overclockers here is most helpful.
I think I would have bought the 990FXA-UD3 motherboard if I had read this forum first, though.
Also, I have had very good experience for many years with quality control from Gigabyte's motherboards, this one is my 4th one I have owned.
have a great day,
