Computer Motherboards

G, Staples
26 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I prefer Gigabyte motherboards. At least you can reach thier tech support and get questions answered or help. Overall I only buy Gigabyte or Asus motherboards. With motherboards you might consider having them shiped to you're local store to nmake sure of the condition of the shipping box. Staples will open the boxs so you can inspect the condition!

Decent but comes with a bit of a catch.

Brian, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Bought this board through the Black Friday sales for my new build. No issues with it until last night when even a fresh installed OS could not run without blue screening. Asked around on reputable tech forums and discovered that apparently the VRM's are damaged. Now this usually only happens when you overvolt your components too far during overclocking, yet I have not touched the voltages, only the CPU multiplier to push an 8320 from a 3.5 GHz stock speed up to a 4.0 GHz...

Love these Gigabyte boards

Irwin Electronics, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: I use this board in all my custom builds. I can use a quad core processor for a budget build, or upgrade to an FX-8350 for all out 8 core performance. This board does everything I need for most any build. I have never had one fail.

This is a wonderful motherboard. I recommend it

Soltan, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a wonderful motherboard. I recommend it, especially for AMD 8-core processor. They run well together. By the way, this motherboard has an AMD processor installed to help handling the traffic of information on the board. So they talk together well.

Never a disappointment

CALSYSTECH, Amazon
5 December 2014
  • Summary: I have never been disappointed by Gigabyte products. Over the years I have purchased many different manufacturers of main boards and they have yet to be problematic. I purchased a similar mainboard from another and it failed way too soon and was problematic soon after purchase. I did not realize that until it was too late. Had to completely reconstruct my whole system because of it. Will keep using the Gigabyte system boards from now on.

Plenty of slots. Support for extra USB ports (both 2.0 and 3.0) but no slot plate adapters.

  • Summary: Motherboards are getting stingy on expansion slots. This board has plenty. The board has pins for USB 2.0 (x4) and USB 3.0 (x2), but it doesn't come with any slot plate adapters. I bought a UXB 3.0 adapter from StarTech.com for about ten bucks on Amazon and it works great. I already had USB 2.0 adapters and those worked fine. The BIOS is really slick (and you can use your mouse).

play some nice, smooth

J. estall, Amazon
6 November 2014
  • Summary: It works!! I put a FX 8350 black edition 4.0ghz with a gtx 970 and 8 gigs of ram+1600. My rig is solid, play some nice, smooth, ultra setting games. I can`t complain. It has PCIe 2.0 though; it`s not really ideal for multiple GPU Sli or crossfire. But if you`re just going to use it with 1 GPU then it`ll be fine.

  • Summary: If you plan on getting an Fx-8350 dont bother. This board died within 4 months and throttled down my cpu bad. I am not the only one that will say dont buy this for and 8350 look around at other reviews and not the ones on amazon. I replaced this with an asus sabertooth on ebay for $120 and works perfect now.

Gigabyte ATX Socket AM3+ AMD 970 Chipset

Nick, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: Nice upgrade noticeable difference from a micro board. Lost a star because the back plate they sent me was flawed and cause the board to sit off the mounts so I had to remove. Minor issue but it is still important. First boot no issues, all is well.
