  • Summary: I’d purchased this in August 2014 and I’ve waited 2 months to build a mid range gaming pc. Just worked fine untill May 2015, I’ve experienced rebootings and finally, not turn. I have spent time and money to figured out, what happend. All other components works! (FX Cpu, Gpu, Ram, etc.).

  • Summary: Got the board on Jan, installed FX 8350 on it, works awesome, POST screen is reasonably short making boot-up speed for my SSD fast. Woke up this morning, tried turning it on, and it failed. I mean c'mon it's only been 4 months.

Great motherboard for the money

  • Summary: Great motherboard for the money. Runs Windows 7 flawlessly, had to do some massaging to get Ubuntu 14.04 to run. To install Ubuntu you need to enable IOMMU in the BIOS and then you MUST use a Live DVD to boot from. Install the OS as specified.

  • Summary: Thor help me if it blows up after writing this.
  • Pros: Build: win 8.1 G.Skill ddr3-1833 2x4gb ram AMD FX-8350 vishera black XFX r9 290a gpu Corsair CX 750m Samsung 850 evo 250gb SSD Enthoo pro case Asus basic cd/rw Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO This was my first actual start to finish build. To my absolute surprise, it booted up on the first try, no iss...
  • Cons: I/O shield a little flimsy, instructions were....lacking - easy fixes, though. Silk screen on the board itself was a little confusing, at least with the front panel connectors, but I'd probably attribute this more to my inexperience than their design.

Good Motherboard for Price!

Joshua D., Newegg
24 March 2015
  • Pros: 4x USB 3.0 ports (2 front, 2 back) 1 pci-e 16x (Future proofing for those BIG GPU guys) Just barely fit my ATX case. Board came down JUST ABOVE PSU unit at the bottom. Color-coded DIMM slots so you know where to insert 2 ram chips without questioning it. It says "Extra Durable" all over this prod...
  • Cons: No cons to speak of! This thing is holding up very well.

Why so Sad...

Chad J., Newegg
24 March 2015
  • Summary: Will not buy Gigabyte product again. Unless I can/they can tell me how to simply install Windows 8.1 64-bit onto a motherboard, when it should be just that simple.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: Can not install Windows 8.1 64-bit for the life of me. It starts and then freezes before Windows Setup screen. Tried from disk, made rufus usb, UEFI mode Lagacy mode. Downloaded Windows 10 TP and no problem with install. Would like to use a full OS and not a tester. Looked online and seems to be ...

Great Board with a Small Problem

SBinK, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: I really like the design and how cool the board is for the price. The only problem i have that makes me go to 3 stars is the usb ports always have a 5v rail power. This is sometimes good for phone charging, but not for other things with an LED indicator on it.
