Summary: about the only thing I found that I hate about this MB is the location of the PCIE short slot which I use for a tuner card my 9800 gtx card is a double slot card so it completely covers the small slot and the location of the memory slots are too close to the processor so you cannot use a standard cpu fan and utilize both memory slots or ram will not fit under fan
Summary: I am using this now, and it's ok but my biggest issue is they put the SATA right under where a Video card hangs out. Yes it has on board vid but so what???? it's a wimpy radeon 3000 card and the 7000 is on the market now. So far I have not been able to get it to run three monitors with the 7000 but the 5000 works. The fans for my video card scrap the sata cables making two of the 6 slots useless. This board is fine and stable but skip this one and get a different board.
Summary: It's okay I guess.... but with so many revisions running around you never know which one you are going to get. Some don't support 125w cpus Plug & Play and some Rev's just dont support anything higher than 95w. It's really poor advertising on their part because what they say on the manufacturers page might not be relevant to what you got in the box.
Summary: The first board I got had no video on start up. cost me $10 bucks to ship it back. After I installed new board checked my windows specs it said I have 6 GB of memory. I have 8 installed. Out of the 6 GB it shows I'm only using 4 GB. You get what you pay for spend an extra $50 and unlock your computers real power.
Summary: It was my fault for not checking but this mobo wouldn't handle the newest AMD cpus. It does actually run them but at a reduced clock rate. Overall, its an older model on discount for a reason. But if you have an older CPU model you won't have any issues.
Summary: BEWARE! This motherboard does not support ALL AM3+ cpu's. I purchased this with an AMD FX 8320 for a new build and it was delivered promptly and well packaged as you would expect from Amazon. The problem started when I built the PC and seen the CPU was running at 2900 instead of 3500. The PC blue screened on me several times so I booted up my other rig and went on Gigabyte's website to find that even with the latest bios this board cannot support the FX 8320. [...
