Pros: Purchased this product for it's bang for the buck, and thus far I am not disappointed in the least. It's paired with the FX-6300 processor. The rebate was easy to submit and they honored it, which I've found to often be a rarity. Installation was easy and went smoothly, my new system is working f...
Cons: None so far, hoping for a long life out of it.
Pros: Good solid board with good specs Has mounting holes that are missing on some comparable boards e.g. MSI 970. It mounts rock solid with no flex. Good layout for easy connections. Good detailed manual
Cons: One tiny con. It needs one or two more fan connectors. You can never have enough.
Summary: Being a first time builder, I was intimidated about picking the right stuff; especially the motherboard. But I didn't go wrong with this one! It is very well labeled and all of the parts are fit together nicely.
Summary: The AMD FX series only remain effective in the price/performance aspect. If you are considering this board, it is good for the price but you need to pair it with an FX chip that is equally good for the price.
Pros: Very nice board. Full ATX, no funny business. Nice audio for on board, no surprises. Not expensive.
Cons: AMD 970 chipset is old, but this isn't the fault of Gigabyte.
Summary: I had trouble after building my system. I orderd a new raidmax case with 430 watt powersupply. The PS would not run this mobo. I switched the PS from a working pc. it was an older antec 500 watt PS. still wouldn't boot. I applied for an RMA and then ordered two new 530 watt PS.
Pros: Works great. great speeds with fast boot times. stable. I left an earlier review that was 1 egg, but it was my error.
