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: 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. [...
Summary: Gr8 board for a budget. All slots were there for my needs, except that there is only 1 System Fan input on the mobo so the other 2 fans in the case are just spinning without receiving any data. But not sure if it is a mistake on the webpage or just a wrong Rev. they sent to me because I received the Rev 4.0 instead of the Rev. 3.1 as it says on the webpage. The rev. 4.0 has only 3+1 Phase Power Design where 3.1 has 4+1 which makes it risky to OC, even though rev.
Summary: Esta placa cuenta con lo mínimo y necesario para un procesador AM3+. Deja mucho que desear en cuanto al EFI, aun no he conseguido instalar Windows en modo EFI y por lo que he leído me va a dar varios dolores de cabeza. Porcierto, NO soporta AM2 ni RAM DDR2.
