On/Off Charge Support
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology that enables faster iPhone,
iPad and iPod Touch charging. A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB
Power feature, On/Off Charge technology allows iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard
USB ports allow, with the added benefit that the PC can be on, in standby mode
or even off...more *Due to certain mobile phone
limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the
PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non On/Off Charge USB ports.
Charging results may vary by model.

According to the SPCR, the 890GPA-UD3H has a decent feature set, good power management and undervoltage capabilities. The 890GX chipset on the otherhand offers little improvement over its predecessors.
If we had to sum up this review in one sentence, we’d have to say that we were incredibly impressed by the GIGABYTE 890GPA-UD3H. Considering its very affordable price tag, rich feature set and impressive capabilities, we would recommend it to both those looking for a budget board as well as to those
Gigabyte has done a great job with the 890GPA-UD3H motherboard. It supports the newest USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps technologies and does not even require a video card since it has integrated graphics supporting HDMI, and DVI out. It will also support CrossFire with an x8/x8 physical connection. It is a v
Gigabyte's first AMD offering based on the latest 890GX chipset is an absolutely phenomenal motherboard. Not only does it come with the latest technologies, such as USB 3.0, SATA 3.0 and the ATI Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics processor, but it also right out of the box comes with more horsep
In closing, the Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H motherboard really impressed us. We got solid performance numbers on it compared to another 890GX motherboard and in some cases they were better and the board costs $15 less. The Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H also was easy to overclock, had a great layout and all the feat

Wouldn't buy it again, but that's only because of the power consumption. I tend to leave my computers on for long periods of time, primarily because Linux doesn't seem to have figured out the whole suspend-resume thing.
Well I finally upgraded my MB and this was my pick after much research. I had looked at Gigabyte before and was impressed with the build quality, design and feature set. Coupled this with the AMD Athlon II X4 640 Quad, Mushkin Enhanced Silverline Stiletto 8GB 2X4GB Kit, and previously updated power supply.
Great board for the money. It comes with onboard video and sound which both work great. The only con i found was the Ram slots are like right next to the cpu. Also the SATA cables are angled towards the side, just a tad annoying to get in.
Purchased my first non-Asus motherboard. All my previous MB's were all Asus, that's about two dozen of them between me and friends in the past few years. I couldnt find all the features that this board had in an Asus without going over the $200 price range. I got this for $127.30 and no complaints at all. I love all of the features and for this price i am blown away. Now my friend wants to give Gigabyte mb's a try. It was a nice run Asus, but I have now found my new winner.
