Motherboard was DOA

Kyle B., Newegg
15 March 2015
  • Summary: To make matters worse, this motherboard was ordered approximately three weeks after a GTX 760 was also ordered from GIGABYTE through newegg. Both shipped DOA. I am highly disappointed that my RMA tickets on both pieces have gone ignored by GIGABYTE and that it appears unlikely that I will receive...
  • Pros: The motherboard was rated very highly, which leads me to believe that those who received a working copy of the motherboard had a very good experience with it.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, my copy of the motherboard was dead on arrival. Support tickets and RMA requests from GIGABYTE have been ignored, despite GIGABYTE's site stating that there is a 3-year manufacturer's warranty available on the board.

so far so good (revised)

lance c., Newegg
10 March 2015
  • Summary: If Gigabyte had printed anything in the manual or on the box stating that that was not I would have still bought it. but Since they are so rude about this PROBLEM, I dropped them from 5 to 1.
  • Pros: Every thing, is working grate. I was able to upgrade my 4 SSD's, TV tuner.. Over clocks easy. Video cards I have a pair of GTX 760's and the full 32GBs ram ready to go in.. I like this board so much I built 6 more for my friends.
  • Cons: Now here's where Gigabyte lost a good customer. it seems that Gigabyte dose not care about those of us who got ripped off by them advertising that it was ready the next generation of AMD CPU's. Its not. After spending money on 1, now they expect me and others to spend the money again. I have new ...

Bust

Erin D., Newegg
8 March 2015
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I bought this motherboard two months ago and finally got the rest of the parts for the computer recently because of my limited income. Now I am not covered by NewEgg replacement and my invoice claims I am not covered by the manufacturer's warranty. Ugh. Should have known better.
  • Pros: Parts in new machine were all compatible with motherboard; easy installation.
  • Cons: Everything was hooked up and fans were spinning, but there were no system beeps or graphics response. Swapped out graphics card with one known to work and still no response.

10 Minute Boot

Andrew G., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • Summary: I've had the same problem with 3 of these motherboards. The bad CPU just complicated the diagnosis. I tried different ram, hard drives, and video cards in all 3. I tried Windows 7 Pro and Home Premium. All with fresh loads.
  • Pros: Fair price if it worked.
  • Cons: 3 out of 4 didn't work.

This board is garbage for Linux

Daniel S., Newegg
22 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought this board figuring I'd give Gigabyte a shot as I normally use MSI. Never again. I'm used to having to tweak things when building a system or installing Linux, but this is just stupid.
  • Pros: Looks Nice
  • Cons: Does not play well with Linux. I have spent the last 2 weeks on forums, etc trying to get a server running with this mobo. I have other linux computers and servers that I run at home and work. This board has been a nightmare to work with. I have benn fight kernel crashes, system freezes, and non-...

So disappointed

Joseph N., Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Pros: Seemed like a solid build for the price. Layout fairly standard.
  • Cons: -No onboard graphics. This makes troubleshooting challenging on a new build. -Absolutely horrendous, non-responsive BIOS, even after updating. I've been trying to play with voltages and half the options won't work. Slow. -Sata placement is lame. -USB mega-socket is very loose. -Placement of CPU s...
