Difficult BIOS installation

Anonymous, Newegg
20 October 2014
  • Summary: Doesn't work with XP, and certainly is a hassle trying to install this.
  • Pros: Small and cheap, easy to install physically, great value for price and good safety features.
  • Cons: BIOS installation is a big issue with this MOBO, just google "GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P wont boot". Researched this for hours and did not find one solution, eventually gave up and sent it to a PC repair shop to get it done.

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.

Future proof? yeah right

Auradin, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • 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.

Big Moves, Little Muscle

Anthony P., Newegg
12 August 2013
  • Summary: This a rare mis-step for Gigabyte. Hopefully the Egg will fix the pics and manufacturers link so no more of us end up buying a lesser board than what's advertised. As for me, it's an RMA for this board and an extra $10 for the GA-78LMT-USB3, which not only adds USB3 and HDMI out, but also has the...
  • Pros: Decent feature set and a good price. Well built board with a surprising (in a good way) number of tweakable OC paramaters (voltages, timings, multipliers and dividers, and all of AMD's power/thermal features). But buyer beware, because in this instance what you see IS NOT what you get (see Cons).
  • Cons: The R5 revision (which seems to be all GB is shipping now) is a significant step down from the board pictured above (as of the date of this posting) and linked to below. In place of the respectable 4.1 phase power section used in previous versions (which also had much beefier heat sinks, Turbo3d,...

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.

Tyler N., Newegg
20 February 2013
  • Summary: I really thought I would like buying something from newegg but the return shipping for just the motherboard is 12$ and it was 4$ to very everything shipped to me.
  • Pros: couldn't tell a single pro about the run time. sleek board, blue led matches.
  • Cons: wouldn't respond to any of my monitors, wouldn't respond to my mouse or keyboard. its a dead board...

Not sure about it

Shannon H., Newegg
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I have always loved Newegg. Buy all our tech stuff there. It's was kind of a disappointment. Never had any trouble installing any other mobo in any of my other systems.
  • Pros: Great layout. Easy hookup guide. Step by step guide and really it's fool proof if you ask me.
  • Cons: Hooked it up. And NOTHING. Tested all the connects, compatibility and have tried countless tech support forums but still nothing. Think I might have a bad board. Ugh. What now.
