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
2 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 ...

6 Months! Yay. Then it failed. Boo.

Kevin C., Newegg

  • 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.

No usb 3.0 with Linux Ubuntu

Ronald H., Newegg
28 March 2016
  • Summary: I am building a data recovery center and am going to need motherboards that work properly so obviously I need to find someone not using VIA-labs stuff. I can get an add on card that works but why should I have to when it is embedded on the board. For now I ordered a card to get usb 3.0.
  • Pros: Easy to work with unless you want usb 3.0 to work in linux.
  • Cons: The VL805 chip will not give you usb 3.0 using Linux. People in Linux forums are quite upset about that and it is to say the least a very hot topic. I would also bet money that the same problem excists with the VL806 chip but I am not going to buy one to find out. With iommu on you have usb 2.0 a...

Dont bother buying it here

Anonymous, Newegg
5 February 2016
  • Pros: Nothing it didn't load bios
  • Cons: Didn't load bios. I did a rna and they sent back the same board. They said ask any questions. I asked how to get it to load into bios since it freezes at the splash screen. They pointed me to the manufacturer, who haven't been helpful either. Now I have a bad motherboard that I can't get a refund...

Unlucky day for me

Kevin W., Newegg
5 February 2016
  • Summary: Unfortunately for me, after having been in a car accident that has left me mostly crippled for this past year and a half, I haven't been able to put this device in til now. But now I have a year and a half of other people's reviews to look at and see that perhaps I was wrong about getting a Gigabyte...
  • Pros: Looks very pretty.
  • Cons: DOA, and had a broken lock on one of the PCIe x16 slots. Can't even manage to get BIOS beeps. Or a screen to come up on monitor. My computer lights up very prettily and my video card and cpu work fine in other computers, so I have no choice but to assume the motherboard is responsible...
