Summary: I bought one about 2 weeks ago. Have had random instability. Started swapping parts two days ago, trying to isolate the bad component. Ruled out everything but this motherboard and the CPU in it. Bought a new motherboard today, so I'll know for certain - but I'm 99% sure the 870A I got has issues. Seems like it would be a pretty great mobo otherwise. I'll revise this once I'm sure. Bonus - we get to see how Amazon is with returns! Whee!
Summary: This board is a very good deal. It has USB3, SATA 6gb/s, and is made by a well respected brand. It carries a recommendation from the Tech Report, a reputable site: [...] I am very satisfied with this motherboard.
Summary: Board has been problematic since i got it started. Every component in my rig has been replaced except the board and still the unit gives random reboots, the BSOD and wont power up at times. Tried three brands of memory which i had to buy local here in trinidad and tobago caribbean, two video cards, new power supply, new hard drives, etc.but to no avail. random blue screen after blue screen after blue screens much all the time.
Summary: Es una muy buena tarjeta madre, trae multiples opciones, y el precio la hace apetecible para cualquier comprador, con el procesador AMD Phenom ii x6 trabaja a la perfección, le conecte dos memorias Patriot de 4x2 y en dual channel trabajan muy bien.
Summary: Good board for the price. The only issue I had with the board was the memory. Make sure you find out the specs for the memory voltage on the board you plan on getting. I ran ddr3 10666 (1333) @ 1.7 volts. The board will support it, I ran into freezing on my board. I switched to 1.5 volts and that made a huge difference. Other then that no other real issues.
Summary: This is a great motherboard and has all the settings and ports you need for a mid-range computer. Plenty of power saving features and top of the line components. On top of that it has a one click setting to unlock the extra cores on the Phenom x2 (the x2 is a quad-core with two cores turned off). Being a huge nerd I took a shot with the Phenom X2 and got lucky, one click setting for a true quad core which passed stress testing flawlessly.
Summary: got this board to run as a high end file server. First major issue I realized (after building it of course) was that it has absolutely NO MONITOR CONNECTION. No, dvi, vga - nothing. The previous 2 Gigabyte boards I bought both had so I just assumed this would too, bear that in mind when you purchase it as you will need to get a graphics card also.
