In use nearly 24/7 since 2008 and still going strong!

Shawn, Amazon
14 March 2015
  • Summary: I bought this board back in 2008. It runs nearly 24/7. First it was my primary computer. Then I upgraded and it became my main HTPC. Either way. It has been running nearly 24 hours a day. It has been moved to different cases. Multiple OSes, etc. But it is always running.

All the bells and whistles

The Engineer Critic, Amazon
19 February 2010
  • Summary: This motherboard came with everything I was looking for (1394, parallel port [internal connector only], tons of USB ports, ethernet [only 1], PCI slots, etc). I've had no problems, but I'm not overclocking. Received revision 1.1 from Amazon.

Last faulty Gigabyte product for me

Maros, Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought this board despite having above average problems with the Gigabyte brand because it had a specific combination of things I really needed. (SATA port number/placement, slot placement, etc) I'm not sure if it's Gigabyte or what but this board preceded to go faulty on me 32 days into its use.

Best P45 motherboard

Darth Vader, Amazon
8 October 2009
  • Summary: This is a fantastic motherboard. It is super stable and fast. Has all the BIOS options you can think of. Gigabyte has the best quality and support in the industry. ASUS is also good in terms of quality and support, but Gigabyte is more user friendly.

Memory picky

OldAnalogGuy "OldAnalogGuy", Amazon
1 August 2009
  • Summary: Many folks have trouble getting this board stable. It is very picky with memory in dual channel. Had tons of trouble running it at 1066 with OCZ RAM @ 2.2Volts. Came right in with G.Skil DDR2-1066. I'm also told it likes Mushkin but not Crucial.

Excellent and Rock Solid

30ips, Amazon
25 May 2009
  • Summary: I have the Rev 1.0 version of this board, but have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. Installation of chip and cooler went fine, no problems installing OS of any sort. All drivers I needed were included on CD, along with some nice tools written by Gigabyte.

Amazon still shipping old revision

Libby, Amazon
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Just FYI to purchasers, Amazon is still selling the old revision 1.0. Apparently Amazon does not move stock very fast because Gigabyte released the 1.1 revision over 4 months ago. Also don't be fooled by their stock photos. The photos they have are of revision 1.1 but they aren't shipping it.

Solid Motherboard but ...

Hungming Chen "EDALBNUG", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: It only has one IDE port, so if you have a bunch of old IDE HDDs then you will need an IDE controller card. I use Promise Ultra TX2 card that came with one of my Western Digital drives, but it seems to have problem with the motherboard and is causing a painfully long boot time.

Gigabyte EP45-UD3R motherboard

Kevindt, Amazon
2 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this motherboard after a fair amount of research and I am very pleased with it. It runs flawlessly out of the box, overclocks my Q6600 2.4 Ghz to over 3.4 GHz with minimal heat on the board or the chip, and is very compatible with Windows XP SP3.

  • Summary: This motherboard even feels like it can handle anything, solid construction, highly detailed, rock solid, extreme performance and last but not the least, a hell of a price!
