Testing:

I will be running the GA-MA790FX-DS5 Premium through our benchmarking suite to see what kind of performance the motherboard delivers. The OverclockersClub series of benchmarks include both system tests and gaming benchmarks to verify the performance of this product. During our stock speed benchmarking, all clock speeds and memory timings will be the same on each of the boards to eliminate any variables. All motherboard and video card settings were left at setup defaults, again to eliminate any variables.

 

Testing Setup:

Comparison System:

 

Overclocking:

The first thing most of us in the enthusiast community want to know is how well does it perform. I will show you up front and personal. The best results on the AMD 6000+ processor was 350HT with clock speeds of 3150MHz on a 9x multiplier. Memory speed was topped out at 350MHz.

 

 

 

I was able to get a suicide shot with the HT at 400, but subsequent reboots would drop the CPU multiplier down to 5 and drop the voltage to 1.1V as well.
