Working great for my NAS

chad g., Newegg

  • Summary: Purchased this primarily to use in a FreeNAS setup and PLEX Server. Combined with the FX-6300, 16Gigs of ram, and 4 4TB hard disks everything is screaming. I've had 4 simultaneous 720p streams out of PLEX without a hiccup.
  • Pros: - 6 SATA Connecters - Great price point
  • Cons: - Not more SATA Connectors?

GA-970A-UD3P MOB

Mr. F., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: This is my second assembly with this board and I would buy it again. If you do not get it to post, I would again recommend that you make sure you have the power led connected to the right pins on the Front Panel Header. Some cases use a two wire connecter and some use a three wire connecter. If you connect the three wire one on the two pin space you will not be able to get the Power Switch connected on the right pins.
  • Pros: Very good board for the price. I am not a gamer, but I am thankful that a lot of gamers buy parts. That creates a demand for desktop parts and thereby they are plentifully available.
  • Cons: Just a few quirks. It does start up slow,if a few seconds is that important to you. The SATA sockets are at the bottom right of the board. I do not have a problem with that as my cables reach fine.

Excellent but NB runs hot

Wang Y., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: -Has pretty much everything you need in a modern (2015) motherboard. -Has the best review for socket AM3+ that's a reasonable price. -Coupled with an FX-8350, it screams. -I prefer this type of SATA ports than those that go to the side, which are annoying.
  • Cons: -The NB gets hot to the touch. I tacked on a little tiny fan and use twist ties to hold the tiny fan to the CPU cooler and the Gigabyte 750 ti video card. Seemed to cool it pretty well. -I noticed it takes a few seconds to get to the BIOS POST screen. A few seconds longer than the other 50+ motherboards I have built in the past.

Nicer Than I Thought for The Price

Mark T., Newegg

  • Summary: I have build 9 systems for family and friends mostly with Gigabyte boards and have never had a problem installing them and setting them up. Usually if something came up it was Windows asking some hi-tech question that could only come from the mind of a programmer. If you don't take your time and enjoy what you are doing with your build then you will screw it up or break something.
  • Pros: Plenty of USB's Dual UEFI bios with lots of options for overclocking Great price Easy to setup Alive and still kicking
  • Cons: Minor Minor Minor: I would have liked a system fan header next to the PWM toward the back of the board for my exhaust fan. I need the 4-pin to control my fans on my H100i liquid cooler. I'll have to run an extension to the front to use the exhaust which is where it should be but no big deal at all..
