The most versatile AMD motherboard available.

roadkillwarlord, Ebay
1 week ago
  • Summary: This board will very literally run all AMD processors on the AM3+ socket including the 220 watt ones. It will run 2 high power video cards. It will run 32gb of any speed of ram your processor's memory controller will handle. Roomy. The integrated sound chip is fantastic, especially playing GTA5.

High Durability Poor software

  • Excerpt: Board looks and feels very durable. Installation was easy, bios setup was easy. Software programs like the bios menu and the extra software were clunky.

Not functional in Linux

Danial B., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Another sad result of this thing; I used to be a loyal fan of Gigabyte motherboards and Nvidia video cards. I still hold a high opinion of their ultra-durable design and long-life construction techniques. However, I do believe this is the last Gigabyte motherboard I will be able to buy.
  • Pros: It really does look very nice in an open-view build.
  • Cons: I have no idea what this board performs like under a Windows environment. You'll have to find that out for yourself. I don't do Windows. I kicked Microsoft to the curb 20 years ago and have never looked back. However, under linux (any flavor) calling this board anything less than a half-crippled ...

Died after 18 months

Kenneth V., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Remember the G in Gigabyte stands for garbage. Last time I purchase their products through newegg.
  • Pros: Worked sufficiently for 18 months
  • Cons: Died suddenly today when the monitor, keyboard, and mouse no longer responded while the machine was powered on. Everything appears to be made like garbage today, dont let anyone tell you this is normal because it isnt. I previously had an old Dell where the hardware lasted for 10 years. Having a ...

Not really Ultra Durable...

Anonymous, Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Since Gigabyte is having such a poor support to customers (Slow RMA + Refurbished exchanges)... I will now be putting Gigabyte on the side for next purchases and will be looking for ASUS, EVGA and MSI products...
  • Pros: Board can handle 8 hard disks
  • Cons: Board started to malfunction after a year, not booting up in morning when temperature was below 18 degrees... It was still working good once booted and warmed up with a heater... and freezing if opened during the next night... - Took Gigabyte at least 1 month to send the RMA, and I was lucky I ha...

Reason why I wait

John S., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Not recommending Gigabyte anything to anyone at this point. Why should I? If they don't care about their product, why should we?
  • Pros: Powerful motherboard, easy to use and configure.
  • Cons: The tech support has had a ticket from me for 4 days and has not responded. I have called twice and left messages on their voicemail. My motherboard after a year has developed a issue with the on board thermostats. It reads three when I power from a cold boot, but reads two with waking from sleep...

BUYER BEWARE

Osujin, Amazon

  • Summary: First off, a warning to those looking to take advantage of the REBATE. Gigabyte will do anything and everything to delay the process, request additional documentation, and ultimately try to get out of honoring any rebates available.

6 Months! Yay. Then it failed. Boo.

Kevin C., Newegg
8 April 2016
  • Summary: I am undecided on the recommend. It depends on if Gigabyte shows up here with an RMA.
  • Pros: This was a great motherboard for 6 months. On the plus side, its failure did push me to replace my power supply and CPU cooler with much higher quality.
  • Cons: Sadly, it is now 6 months and one week. This week it locks up in the BIOS screen showing a nice cool CPU.

Was great while it worked!

Joseph T., Newegg
31 March 2016
  • Summary: - I no longer can recommend this product to others, as having 2 different things die after such a short time doesn't earn my recommendation. - Also, Gigabyte's RMA system is old-age and generally awful.
  • Pros: - Inexpensive motherboard with plenty of features. - No shortage of connectivity, and faster USB charging is a great feature.
  • Cons: - USB 3.0 controller died within a week of having a front-panel USB 3.0 header plugged in. - Main CPU fan controller died within 2 months... let's just say it's a good thing I have good case cooling.
