Pros: It is a cheep motherboard that works for most people... when it works
Cons: I have had this motherboard for about a year, after two months my computer started to freeze occasionally so no big deal these things happen. so I contact gigabyte to RMA the motherboard, sent it in, 3 weeks later they sent it back it was same broken motherboard they just re-flashed the bios with...
Summary: cheap build for non-gamer wife, but I loaded it up with gaming potential so I can use it to box accounts or a back up if mine goes down. everything went great with instal. cheap 750ti, cheap fx-6300, 8gb gskill 1833, Samsung evo 256 ssd, everything seems to be working great so far.
Pros: booted right up, no hassle, plenty of space, cheap price for what seems to be good quality.
Summary: Will start RMA procedure today. Probably part of the problem is that most of these boards are made in China.
Pros: Specs sound good.
Cons: Like other reviewers, this board is a bust. I made the mistake of ordering an open box item to save a few bucks. After seeing other comments about the number of these that are DOA, can't help but wonder if Newegg is taking the returns discounting a few bucks and putting them back up for sale. I h...
Summary: Off the subject, but my OS was upgraded From Windows 7 to 10 on the free upgrade offer from Microsoft. I put in the ASUS mobo, and remarkably, the OS used on the Gigabyte mobo booted right up with all drivers recognized on the Asus. Microsoft, however, wouldn't register Windows 10.
Pros: It worked, and still worked when I took it out of my case and replaced it.
Cons: I have owned many motherboards, strictly AMD, and am usually am ambivalent as to motherboard performance. The machine boots up, and runs general software without a hitch, and relatively quickly, I'm happy. This board, however, I do not like. I wasn't sure if it was the board or software, but on b...
Summary: Had bought mine off a different, jungle-named site. After seeing the reviews on here the higher price I paid doesn't seem as bad - as I probably would've gotten a bad one anyway.
Pros: USB 3 Front and Back Looks good Good Specs
Cons: Pulling it out of the box I discovered the board was warped. Daring to install anyway, I put everything together only to get 0 power flow. So, like another reviewer, I thought the PSU was bad. My local shop confirmed that no, PSU and front headers were good - MoBo was bad.
