Summary: This motherboard is perfect. The fact that you can charge your phone or device while the computer is powered off. Of course you would still have to make sure the computer is plugged in and your PSU is powered on. Cons: Only 2 fan headers but you can buy adapters to plug in extra fans from your PSU.
Summary: 95 watt 960T oc to 3.7 Ghz onboard video processor and 8 gs of amd 1600 ram. 500 watt gold power supply, ubuntu 14 LTS. Sold it to someone who just needed a internet box. No complaints and it has been almost a year.
Summary: This VERY well made, SOLID. This is my 3rd Gigabyte MB. I have never had a Gigabyte product fail, and I have been building system for friends for many many years. This board recently survived a lightning strike which took out my cable modem, router, graphics card and monitor. What more can I say?
Cons: Unable to use ethernet port to connnect to network, usb ports drop out connection, and onboard video does not display. Whole lot of driver issues with Vista. Gigabyte Support no help in resolving this issue.
Pros: Has everything on board, usb 3.0 header, support for 32gb RAM, has IDE for your older stuff. MSI Gaming 970 better choice with room to grow. Check cons on how to make the MSI run better. Of course this MoBo is a nice cheap backup.
Cons: But lacks support naive 1600 RAM, if you do not know how to overclock it will only revert to 1333, and there is a difference in performance. Like i said if you are making an update from an older build, nice cheap board. I tried it with about the same as their bundle:4350fx,120ssd,1tb hd, but 32 g...
Summary: Great value for being able to support old equipment and new equipment. Still has the IDE controller port for old optical drives as well as the SATA port for raid and two hard drives. Not the fastest on the planet, but neirther are my periferals! Very happy!
Summary: Not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong but I could only install a OS using a older IDE drive because both of my new SATA harddrives don't seem to want to boot.Yes I did a clean install (Fdisk,Format ,Install Winxp than upgrade to Win 7) NOTE:The bios does recognise them so I don't know but it's...
Pros: Well it works well so far so here is a list : 1.Easy to configure 2.The bios has a backup and I can store profiles 3.It works 4.Superfast shipping :) I will give it a 5 egg when I get past a few months and it still works.
Cons: Only problem that is bothering me now is that a graphics card with a large heatsink and fan like mine covers up the remaining pci slots.luckily I don't need them right now.
Summary: used in a build with an fx 6300 and is working perfectly fine. Has had 8GB of g.skill ripjaws in it with no compatibility issues as well as having a corsair 4GB ram module. Something to be aware of is to probably not attempt an overclock with this mobo. If you do, it would have to be very modest.
