Summary: ...although it's supposed to mean "ultra-durable". I bought this because I'd had a good experience with the MA770-UD3, but they seem to have been cutting corners on this follow-up despite the significant price premium for the "UD" suffix. One worrying sign of Gigabyte's economising is the non-TI Firewire chip and the 4-lane secondary PCI-Express slot. I've been unable to get this board running stably.
Summary: This motherboard is one to avoid. It will not run RAM any faster than 1333 and 1 of the system fan connectors on the motherboard doesn't work (I have tried 5 different fans) I upgraded to the latest Bios version but this doesn't fix the fan or RAM problem. Just to add I can't overclock a fx6300 at all without Windows BSOD. I have now bought a better motherboard.
Summary: This is the second board I've bought from these guys. The first being a Gigabyte D3 which wouldn't switch on either the fans spun for half a second or so then died.. Same situation with this board. Took it out and replaced it with an old board to see if it wasn't an issue with my PSU or any other components. Old board came on fine. Will return and get a replacement. Hopefully i'm just twice unlucky...
Summary: ok so i bought this motherboard to take my fx 6100. on the box it said am3+ bios installed so being of average intelligence assumed it would work... but no fitted motherboard nothing all the fans worked but no bios. now i might of had just a bad one.... sending item back for a refund tho its going to take 3 weeks after they receive my return......and i see im not the only one it has happened to..... think im going to go and get a asus ....
Summary: Firstly I am a software engineer by trade and am very confident when it comes to PC's Servers etc... Ordered this product on 18/1/12; arrived a few days later. I noticed from the get go that something was not right. Once the package was opened: 1) The manual had been read before 2) There were no screws etc.. in the bag. I carried on with the install. After connecting everything the motherboard would not POST.
Summary: Helaas is dit moederbord niet compatible met ram-geheugen van Corsair, Kingston of PNY. Misschien was alleen mijn moederbord niet ok, maar met 3 merken niet werken is toch teleurstellend. Koop liever wat anders.
Summary: Spijtig genoeg heb ik met dit bord niets anders dan miserie gehad. Mijn Samsung schijf niet compatibel, problemen met Maxtor compatibiliteit, het geheugen van Corsair 1600mhz herkent het bord niet, Windows 8 blijft voortdurend in loop draaien en crashed. Allerlei forums afgeschuimd om via technical support een oplossing te vinden en uiteindelijk te horen gekregen dat sommige onderdelen niet compatibel zijn met dit moederbod.
Cons: veel compatibiliteitsproblemen, windows 8 pro crashed
Summary: Wieder defektes Board von Gigabyte innerhalb von 2 Wochen,das erste war für Intel 1150 Sockel GA-Z87-DS3H (keine datenübertragung auf die Festplatte möglich). Fühle mich Sehr Enttäuscht, zwei verschiedene Boards gleiche Probleme. Nach 10 Jahren mit Gigabyte Boards werde zurück auf Asus wechseln.
