[TPU] GIGABYTE Introduces the AM3 Ready GA-MA790FXT-UD5P Motherboard - Page 2

post #11 of 31
This board looks way better than the x58 Classified, that flashing thing on the classified is really off putting and red is harsh to the eyes, I like light coloured motherboards.. White case + Light Blue Highlights/CCFLs. *drools*

to be an accurate comparison you should compare that non-top end X58 to a non-top end 790.

So AMD fixed the memory overclocking issue that existed with AM3 CPUs using DDR2 memory? Many users had to lower their DDR2 speeds below 1066MHz if they had multiple DIMMs or wanted to overclock their CPU significantly.
