GIGABYTE has no shortage of marketing logos on the front of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 packaging. You definitely know what the board is made of before you even pick up off of the retailers shelf.
The back of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 retail packaging breaks down into greater detail some of the key features of the 990FXA-UD7.
The packaging for the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 features a front cover that opens up. Once you lift the front cover you can catch a glimpse of the AMD AM3+ socket as well as a peek at the grey and gold heatsink assembly.
Inside the front cover we are inundated with even more features of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7.
Once we remove the outer shell of the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 we are presented with a second, much sturdier box. This layer of the retail packaging aids in the protection during the brutal handling of your local UPS/FedEx delivery driver.
Beginning to open up the second layer of boxes, we are presented with the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 inside yet another box. I suppose one can never be to careful during the hazards of shipping.
Below the box that carries the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 we find another box that keeps the bundle separate from the rest of the packaging.
The bundle that comes along with the GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 has everything you will need to set up your system. It includes the usual manuals, driver disk, GIGABYTE and DOLBY Home Theater case badges, I/O shield, and four SATA cables. It also comes with the bridges needed for NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX. For NVIDIA SLI you have a bridge for dual GPU SLI, Three way SLI and four way SLI. The bridges for AMD CrossFireX that are included inside the bundle is a pair of dual card bridges.
