Summary: So i ordered this motherboard in hopes that ir was legitamately the REV 1.4 so that it would support my FX-4130 quad core procesor that i purchased. I checked gigabytes website to see what boards were compatible with the FX-4130, and the Gigabyte 880GM-D2H REV 1.x supports it but the Rev 3.1 does not.
Summary: UPDATE FEBUARY 2013: This motherboard has been working since my first review, until now no problems whatsoever. Everything is normal as expected. So im using it in a server enviorment with an AMD Sempron 145. And in my tests it has very low power consumption. I recommend it! The mobo is great for the price! The chipset gets hot, but its nothing to worry, it wont explode! This is perfect for a server as it has low power consumption! Kudos Gigabyte!

Summary: This motherboard is a decent one but I do have issues with the onboard SATA controller at times but am reluctant to say that it is definitely an issue with the board as I have read that some storage devices themselves have similar issues to what I have experience. Your experience may vary depending on your hardware.
Summary: i used this motherboard for a dvr that i built. its perfect for what i needed. had the right amount of pcie slots for VGA,sound card, wireless card. and DVR/TV card. there is other slots that you can add other stuff if you use the smaller VGAs that take 1 slot on the case.
Summary: I almost returned this board because it "died" when I was loading the drivers. I loaded Windows 7. I then unlocked the 4th core on my AMD X3 cpu. I then loaded the Gigabyte drivers when the pc shut down. I thought it was restarting to finish loading the drivers but it never restarted. I kept hitting the power button and nothing happened. I was very very angry as I started to recall all the negative reviews. I left it and went to bed to calm my nerves.
Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H - Has all of the features I needed

Summary: Warning to all who are considering purchase of this motherboard based on the pictured & specs listed above, Gigabyte has removed the ATA-133 IDE & Floppy drive connector from the Rev 3 version of this GA-880GM-D2H motherboard, not a deal breaker for me personally, I'll try to upload some pics. This is not going to be a motherboard review per se, but more on what that led me to buy this motherboard.
