Pros: Good looking, and worked perfectly when it actually worked
Cons: Bought this board at the end of September, and it will not post already. Only thing it does now is rev the fans for half a second and that's about it. This is not a good first impression on my first gigabyte purchase for my custom PC.
Summary: first and last time buying gigabyte. Should have stuck with my gut and not take any chances with this purchase.
Pros: Cheap, color scheme, uefi.
Cons: from day one of installation there has been nothing except problem after problem. currently i'm battling a random restart and/or complete system freeze and Corrupted Bios. Sent a request for RMA to gigabyte. Lets see how long it takes for them to answer/honor their warranty.
Summary: Don't buy this board, the low price just leads to a higher risk of low quality parts. I've learned my lesson from Gigabyte.
Pros: My RAM worked with it, and my GPU worked with it.
Cons: CPU Core Unlocker does not work properly with Phenom 2 CPU Manual Core Selector does not work properly with Phenom 2 Hypertransport cranks itself well beyond what Phenom 2 needs The SATA ports are all dead, my hard drive and CD drive works on other computers, as well receives power in this one fr...
Summary: It took a while to get around to build. All new components. Started rebooting while loading W7. After several tries it finally loaded. As new driver were loaded it would continue to reboot. Tried several iterations using old hard drive, old video card, which worked before, with the same results.
Summary: Guess we'll see how good Gigabyte RMA is... now I just have to wait two freaking business days to get an RMA approval.
Pros: Cheap with a package deal from Newegg.
Cons: Seemed to work Ok after the initial build, despite a random lockup or two while setting up the OS, I thought just might have been a driver issue. After a week at the clients house, it started randomly rebooting and locking up. Beat my head against a wall for about a month afterwards trying to fig...
Cons: After 4 months the computer locks up. did a reboot and nothing. will not post at all. the fans work but that is it. been a gigabyte customer for years with various gpu and motherboard purchases. i guess i was due for a lemon.
Pros: Price. Previous good luck with motherboards from this manufacturer.
Cons: The whole process of trying to get this motherboard running has been a hassle. Reboots consistently and randomly. I've replaced the video card, the power supply, and RAM, and HDs. Nothing worked. I was able to get it to do a full install to W7 once and it was up and running until I manually reboo...
Summary: I hope GIGABYTE will help me to solve the problem.
Pros: yet to be discovered
Cons: I bought this motherboard, an AMD FX processor, G.Skill memory in a combo deal form NEWEGG. Added a ASUS Video card (GT 610 Silent). Loaded drivers and OS without much problem. But the computer freezes up. Just to be sure, bought a new PSU but the problem persists.
