Summary: This motherboard is great. It was incredibly easy to build with, and had more than enough ports for everything I needed. I used this board in my second build that I just recently finished and I have to say, I'm more than pleased.
Summary: I've been using this motherboard for about a month and a half now, and I haven't had any major issues. There were a few hiccups early on due to driver confusion, but once it was sorted out, it's worked great.
Pros: It is pretty good for a first pc, but you'll definitely get the itch to upgrade later. Handled everything I put on it pretty well and OC'd my CPU very nicely. My NIC went out after a while (just under a year) but I was wanting to upgrade anyway.
Cons: It didn't line up with the pegs on my case so it didn't have as much support. The bios isn't as user friendly, but as an entry level board it's not a surprise.
Summary: The first one I purchased was never able to boot nor would it give any attempt to post, no beeps. Everything would run but no video and it just wouldn't post. All hardware worked great I bought this to upgrade from an ASRock MB but I RMA the MB and Newegg sent me another within a week.
Pros: Great Features Great layout of the board
Cons: DOA Twice Could never get it to post nor get the beeps when it tries to post. All fans (8 of them) would operate DVD and Hard drives just no video and no post, even the fans on the video card would run but never any signal
Summary: Great board for an old guy who has not built a computer in over four years.
Pros: i have not made a computer in over 4 years and there is no question that todays motherboards are a cake walk to setup and this Gigabyte motherboard is no exception. So far i can find nothing wrong with this board. Cost is another factor to because ten years ago a board like this quality would cos...
Summary: I've had this board for almost a week and had no issues. I see that some people have, well almost every motherboard on newegg I looked at had bad reviews. So I took a chance and am happy with my purchase :)
Pros: Really good audio quality. Everything works good.
Summary: Love the motherboard. Only issue is the inability to control addition fan when connected directly to the board. You will need a fan controller to do so. Also, I was surprised to receive the revision 2 rather than the posted revision one in the picture. The BIOS is easy to configure.
