A good project destroyed by AMD's flawed drivers and Gigabyte's pathetic technical support

Summary: This review is for the 2.1 revision of this motherboard. The Hitachi DeskStar 7K3000 HDS723020BLA642 SATA 3 HD won't work with the SATA connections provided by the AMD SB850 south bridge in IDE or AHCI mode under Windows XP 64 SP2 - neither with the drivers provided by Gigabyte nor with the latest...
Great mother boards for AM3 socket for those who overclock and need expansion capability!
17 December 2011
Summary: This is a great mother board to use with a 1090T or 1100T CPU. Mine has an AMD 1090T CPU in it that is overclocked to 4.2 GHz and the memory is running at 1600 MHz and under timed for great performance. This board was easy to install and set up and the overclocking was very easy.
Summary: The motherboard is the heart of a computer, so when building a new system it behooves to purchase with quality in mind. I bought this board for a new gaming system build coupled with an AMD 1090T CPU and AMD 6870 graphics card.
Summary: Used this fantastic m/b for a new build.

Summary: Easy install no problems. Runs stable with phenom 2 1090t six core. Has ide ports and x1 exspress slot wich is the reason i bought this particular motherboard. Bottom line is quality no hassles!!
Summary: This is an exceptional quality built motherboard with many features. The install was fairly easy to do and my computer system booted up as expected following the install. No issues or problems found.
Summary: I have built two family PC's with this board and am very pleased with how well it performs and is built. Will allow over clocking if you want to but runs very solid and fast with any AND processor you put in it that is AM3. Pairs up well with GSkill memory. Overall a very solid MB.
Summary: I don't like reviews by people who haven't purchased the item or actually used it. That being stated, I have had this for just over a week. I bought a Phenom II X6 Black Edition and 8GB of memory. I love this board. The only problems I have are more with putting an OS on it.
