Summary: Strengths: -Works excellent with Windows XP, Vista, 7 -Works with Ubuntu 9.04 -Most compatible board that I use for OSX Hackintosh - Leopard and Snow Leopard -Solid Caps -Easy/Safe Bios updating using @BIOS Weaknesses: +5vsb cannot be disabled - F9 Bios does not fix the slow USB boot - No AHCI mode Summary: Overall this board is awesome and I love it. The 1st board was defective. Mwave replaced it right away, no questions asked! Great support!
Summary: Great matx board for htpc,etc. For light to moderate use onboard graphic suffice,great for an inexpensive desktop build. I have built a few with this model mainboard with no problems. A good,reliable Gigabyte product.
Summary: Awesome gaming board accepted my intel E3300 without a problem. $22 great price. Only thing wrong with my board was 3 bent pins. I used a small screw driver to bend them back and it works great.
Summary: I had tried two other boards with my Intel E5400 Processor without success. When I put the G31m in it worked the first time, and works well with Windows 7 installed. Very fast and problem free.
Summary: One of the easiest mobos to install I've ever come across, for a first build this was really good. Everything just works, not much more to it. This board also make OC'ing really easy for begginers as I managed to OC a Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 to 2.4ghz and a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to 3 ghz. I've just upgraded to a Asrock G41m VS3 R2.0 as it has DDR3 memory and can use a full 8gb with win 7 64bit.
Summary: I bought this as I wanted to keep my current system going, the motherboard was on it's way out and didn't support the latest interfaces reliably (SATA/PCI express). I bought this after a quick search for socket 775 motherboards. It had positive reviews and was a good price versus buying the latest/greatest bits. The old motherboard came out of my system, I removed the old pentium cpu and put it in this one. It's a tiny board so should fit in any case.
