Cant use double slot vid cards

,, TigerDirect.com
17 February 2014
  • 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

badly considered placements

Michael Moody, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • 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.

Future proof? yeah right

  • 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.

Spend the exra money for a better board

  • 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.

Could not handle new 125W CPUS

James Miller "(LDSG) Jimbo", Amazon
5 June 2013
  • 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.

Good board, but wrong rev.

Yihhaa!!!, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • 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.

User Review

Bernd, Mindfactory.de
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Es sieht gut aus, es ist OK, aber leider mit Hinblick auf die Stabilität deutlich schlechter als die ASUS Boards mit Chipsätzen aus der gleichen Baureihe. Es ist leider schon das zweite MB von Gigabyte, welches sowohl mit dem RAM sehr empfindlich ist, als auch auf den USB Ports für viele Gräte nur unzureichend Leistung liefert und diese damit unterversorgt. Außerdem auch wieder einmal Probleme mit dem Onboard Ethernet unter windows.
