Summary: I made the mistake of waiting > 30 days to install and now have $400 paperweight. I assume it would run under winblows but I have no need of another winblows - I have 2 and that's more than enough.
Cons: Purchased in late 2013, built with an AMD FX9370 processor and H100 liquid cooling system. I bought this board and and for the first few months I was very happy with it. However after three months it began to random shut down my system. I first it was only after an hour or so of use, then 5 mins ...
Summary: Don't get this board unless you want to take a MAJOR chance that it's going to be TOTALLY USELESS. Read the articles about the VRM issues. It is NOT resolved with version 4 despite a lot of articles saying contrary!
Pros: None yet.
Cons: This board gets WAY, WAY, WAY too hot! It will overheat and shutdown! Read the articles about this board before you get it (ALL REVISIONS). I NEVER would have bought this board had I seen others comments first about the heat problems on the VRM... I am really ticked off about this one. I'm hesita...
Summary: Newegg must be going down the tubes if you aren't even allowed to mention a competitor in reviews. I am disappointed but I will be doing my business elsewhere, a place that isn't afraid of its competition.
Pros: Board I ordered was doa, board I got after rma was doa. How can Newegg keep selling a board that has a history of being dead. I have purchased my last MOBO from Newegg. Got a nice refurbished MSI 990FXA-GD80 and it works wonderful. No more Gygabiyte for me.
Cons: What could be worse that have two MOBOs arrive dead when you are trying to assemble a new system. It just amazes me that these peices of dog doodoo are even being sold by anyone. Gygabyte has no credibility as far as I am concerned.
Summary: The graphic cards came in an open box too, but I can't even check if it's good. CyberPower CP1500PFCLCD that I ordered holds power but every other of its functions, meaning the lcd is broke. Got to love online shopping nowadays.
Pros: Looked nice...the rma started off quickly, Newegg pays for shipping, waiting for a refund.
Cons: The rating system for this item is misleading. I didn't realize it had so many DOA's until mine arrived dead and I started digging into the reviews. It came in an open box, the manual says there should be 6 Sata cables, but they were missing and the board wasn't booting or making any sounds.
Summary: Never had such a bad experience with a motherboard. Stay away!
Pros: It works despite the first one being DOA and the second one having defective USB 3 ports.
Cons: The first one I received was DOA which caused me a lot of undue stress. This board also doesn't come with a system speaker so there's no easy way to tell the board is dead unless you buy a special motherboard speaker... So anyways I had to tear down my entire computer piece by piece and RMA the b...
Summary: Board came DOA sent in for repair because wouldn't post. Board now post beeps then shuts down. I build for fun and don't mind fixing a problem here and there but this is not fun. If Gigabyte reads this please don't bother sending me a repair number just send me a new board.
Summary: I sent the board in the first time due to receiving a DoA board, I got the 2nd one and it worked for 2 hours and then died, got the 3rd one and it's also DoA. There is a problem at the factory and a lot of these boards are bad and in circulation. I would buy from another company.
