Deceptive

Anonymous, Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Summary: This board is very deceptive, it looks great, and has good features at a good price, but the random BSOD is un-bearable.
  • Pros: It doesn't explode?
  • Cons: Random BSOD'ing. All-The-time. I hate it, i have lost work, game progress, ect.. because of this board locking up, BSOD'ing, and just restarting.

Don't believe your eyes

Anonymous, Newegg
26 May 2011
  • Summary: So now I am spending more with newegg to convert my old kvm switch to one that uses USB. A shame that Gigabyte doesn't test its products or firmware.
  • Pros: this board had all the features I wanted except....
  • Cons: Neither of the PS2 ports work. I bought it needing PS2, so I RMA'd the board, paid for its return, and Newegg was VERY prompt in sending a replacement. Which also did not have working PS2 ports.

Fried after 16hrs!

Alexander S., Newegg
10 April 2011
  • Summary: After trying to fix this irritating issue, I realized that Gigabyte's customer service pretty much sucks. Keep this in mind before purchase.
  • Pros: Worked very beautifully while it lasted. Kind of a pretty blue color.
  • Cons: Completely shut off and refused to work after 16 hours of use. Will not even turn on.

Low quality, get a better brand

Nick S., Newegg
24 February 2011
  • Summary: Got this board as part of a custom built computer (bought the computer from a friend not working) First thing that I found out was that the bios was not updated to support a 6 core CPU. Luckially i had a compatible quad core sitting around to use to flash the bios so it would support the 6 core.
  • Pros: Supports AMD 6 core processors
  • Cons: Sometimes fails to post

So close, and so far...

Jonathan B., Newegg
23 February 2011
  • Summary: Should have been an awesome board. Instead it was the most unstable and buggy thing I may have ever used. I couldn't even get through an installation of an application without it crashing, and if it did it would BSOD after that. RMA'd it, not looking back.
  • Pros: The features you get for the price are great, Gigabyte's name is respectable and I've not had any issues with them... before now.
  • Cons: One deadly issue after another. Instability is the biggest problem. Paired with a 1090T, should have been fine but it was crashing, freezing, BSODing constantly. Anywhere from 1 to 30 minutes it would just crash, either a game or Windows 7 Ult x64. Also had issues with CPU voltage and RAM setting...

BSOD....

Deng X., Newegg
12 January 2011
  • Summary: I hope I can RMA this through newegg this week and swap to the ASUS board with similar features. I should've listened to the bad reviews on the many problems with this board....
  • Pros: The setup of the board is nicely spaced and has lots of 3-pins to add additional cooling to your system. The features are pretty cool and the board looks great.
  • Cons: I had it up and running for about 3 days after putting it all together (running with a 3.1ghz Athlon II triple-core and EVGA GTS 450) It was running fine until I got my BSOD. After that the BSODs wouldn't stop, and to make matters worse it gave me a different error code each time.

BSOD

Matthew K., Newegg
12 October 2010
  • Summary: It looks like I'm not alone w/ these issues.
  • Pros: Bought similar model a year ago. Encouraged, I bought two more.
  • Cons: One of the new units I bought gave me BSOD during my first install. This happened again during second install, but completed installation; however OS froze frequently. Third installation was smooth, but again OS froze frequently. Because this computer was for a relative living 50 miles away, I wa...
