simple but powerful board

terry r., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: great board and supper easy to install I was up and running in under 25 minutes from unboxing to windows install.
  • Cons: not really a con but with recent cases putting power supply at bottom i wish the board makers would adjust the placement of the cpu plug and the memory slots a little cause it almost impossible to install fans ( water coolers) and such cause you right up against these areas. ( i had ot grind down...

decent but not ideal for overclocking

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This works as a base motherboard but don't expect to get super high overclocked with it. It gets too hot and there aren't enough options
  • Pros: I overclocked a phenom ii 965 with moderate success. Recently overclocked a fx 8350 on same board. 4 fan headers Somewhat nice bios with mouse functionality Survived multiple case swaps
  • Cons: There isn't as many bios options as a better board would have. The secondary pwm header is kind of wierd and I can't really get it to do what I want. The Sata ports pointing outward is more annoying than I thought it would be It could do with better heat sinks since higher watt processors get so ...

  • Summary: Bought this for upgrading my brother computer w/ RAM as a christmas gift and now it doesn't work at all. RAM is not the issue (tested on 2 other old mobo). Thanks gigabyte.
  • Pros: - Looks nice and robust. - Simple bios navigation for O.C. and management.
  • Cons: -It works for like 1 month. -After the 1 month, freezing, crashing, every 3 minutes (in BIOS or Windows). The bridge get way too hot I almost burned my finger on it.

Lasted less than a month

Ryan B., Newegg
23 December 2015
  • Summary: Don't recommend buying from this company again
  • Pros: Worked fine and nice BIOS for about a month
  • Cons: After less than a month of using it , it suddenly died on me for no reason. The fans still spin when I turn on the PSU but no LED light and no POST and I tried resetting the CMOS battery and jumper cable still didn't work. Took out the ram sticks to try and get a beep and got nothing. Never overc...
