Great Board. I Own 4, and only had to RMA 1

Gordon J., Newegg
20 May 2015
  • Summary: I built a system for my son using this board. I loved it so much, I built 3 more with it.
  • Pros: Solid Board, works great! has room to grow. Initial build was with the 6300 CPUs which I later upgraded to 8300 series CPUs. I also went from 16GB to 32GB of RAM on each
  • Cons: None. It really is a great board. I would've given it 5 eggs, but I removed one egg for the one board that arrived DOA. Very rarely will I give 5 eggs on anything.. even a minor hiccough will get an egg removed.

Good MOBO

Alexander J., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Pros: I Built my computer around black friday of 2014 and this MOBO has worked very well for me. It was easy to install every component and nothing was broken. The BIOS express disk is nice and installs everything in about 10 mins and your up and running. No regrets with buying this MOBO
  • Cons: Its the only MOBO ive ever owned that did not have random power LED lights on it, so when I powered up and nothing was lighting up, it was alarming but it had no affect on the performance and value so its not really a CON.

  • Summary: I've had this board since January '15. It was running stable for four months and then things wend down hill. I decided to run SLI GPUs and needed to upgrade the PSU. I picked up a new one, swapped it in to the system (not removing or changing any other compnents) and got nothing.
  • Pros: Good looking design, Dual BIOS, robust connectivity, ran fine until it didn't...
  • Cons: About to RMA for the 2nd time

Great Board - Except for the Northbridge

Benjamin L., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Summary: If it wasn't for that Northbridge problem, I'd give this five stars.
  • Pros: I have had this board for a few years, paired with a FX-8120 OC'd to 4.2Ghz. This board is good. The boot times are a bit long, but that's a minor thing. Almost any CPU cooler will fit. I had a massive Zalman cooler for the first few years, and it fit tightly, but not too tightly. I don't know if...
  • Cons: The Northbridge on this board gets INSANELY hot. When I say 'hot', I mean hot enough to instantly give me nearly-second degree burns. The factory heatsink is downright pitiful for this board (Problem was fixed on Revision 3, but I have Revision 1.1). I tried an aftermarket cooler, but the fan fai...

Still going strong

George W., Newegg
17 May 2015
  • Pros: This motherboard went into my first custom PC build, and after nearly four years is still going strong. It's been through tons of BIOS flashes (installing and diagnosing an SSD), and hasn't quit yet!
  • Cons: BIOS isn't pretty

Warranty is a lie

Joshua F., Newegg
17 May 2015
  • Summary: The last several years I've noticed the quality in motherboards declining, on a lot of high end brands. Will continue with the RMA process and update feedback.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Less than a year old, dies. Contact Gigabyte for warranty (listed as 3 years) and they want to charge me to repair the board. This was my first experience with Gigabyte, and probably the last.

after 2 years report

Anonymous, Newegg
16 May 2015
  • Pros: it's a sturdy board. Holds plenty of PCIe components. Really fast bios boot. Has lasted me for 3 years now without degrading or noticeable wear.
  • Cons: Will not recognise my 16gb DDR3 1600 ram. automatically clocks it down to 1333. Not a huge deal but still a flaw.
