2nd Review of Motherboard.

Kenneth G., Newegg
12 May 2015
  • Summary: So many blue screens of death... flashed BIOS.. no good.. checked RAM, CPU Temp.. unplugged my mouse and keyboard... reseated GPU.. nothing seemed to work. Spent hours on chat with NEWEGG and Gigabyte... nothing worked.. was ready to use motherboard as Frisbee....
  • Pros: More USB connections then anyone could ever use. Overall I am pleased with the board. Please see the Other Thoughts..
  • Cons: Board causes BSOD with what appears to be onboard USB 3 drivers. AMD also had said that the FX-8350 was buggy on the board.

Was good while it lasted

Derrick E., Newegg
7 May 2015
  • Summary: I gave the board a 3 instead of a 1, even though I wanted to... Aside from it dying, it was great while it lasted.
  • Pros: It delivers every promise on the box. Everything it says it does, it does.
  • Cons: It just stopped working in my 11th month of ownership. I've only ever had two motherboards die on me in my span of 12 years worth of building computers. Both were Gigabyte mobos... I replaced it with an ASUS mobo and I won't be trying gigabyte again any time soon.

Upgraded for amd 9590

Anonymous, Newegg
5 April 2015
  • Pros: Very nice redesign from rev. 1.1. There are more features than what's on the older version of the board. VERY GOOD board for Amd 8350 or lower.
  • Cons: Okay, I know the manufacture website says it supports AmD 9590. Unfortunately they are wrong very wrong. THE only reason I upgraded from Rev 1.1 to 4 was so I could have a 9590 under the hood. Well countless hours spent troubleshooting this I gave up and stuck the 8350 back in and no problems. I'...

Second MOBO good, NEWEGG, meh.

Grant G., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Summary: Oh ya on top of all that they sent me a letter stating “Please follow the appropriate RMA process and use phone support in the future please.” HA, from what I have read from previous people with dead mobos is the utter time wasting of hours with phone support to only confirm what I already know.
  • Pros: Second motherboard seems to work great.
  • Cons: So this review is subject to change a little if NEWEGG decides to see this and do me right because I'm not sure I have the patience to deal with phone support, and from what I can tell from reviews on Newegg, phone support is pretty useless and redundant although I never tried so I have no experi...

  • Summary: Then the card would give me code 10 can not initialize! I had to disable and re-enable on-board usb ports to get to work!. This is not the fault of the motherboard really! It's an issue of the drivers! Both use the same update driver off of VIA's website!
  • Pros: Paired with a 212evo and fx6300 Overclocks so simple! Disabled all cpu power nonesense! apm/c1e etc set multiplier to 22.5 4.6ghz ran prime 95 failed. bumped up voltage to 1.44 ran prime 95 for 2 days zero problems. Did multple test on on Intel burn test etc. everything passed. Default 4.1 ghz vo...
  • Cons: USB Ports from day one were finiky! Refuses to boot with a usb3.0 card that is known working. Put known working card in diffrent pc. The USB ports in the back contain the same chipset that was on the pci express card. VIA xhci. This caused a driver issue. If I disabled usb ports onboard if I had ...

  • Summary: First board RMAed for a refund, 2nd board disappointing for what I was expecting...
  • Pros: Looks nice, somewhat functional board, has lots of options
  • Cons: - For my setup, my Windows 7 64-bit would freeze up unless I disabled USB3 and 1394 Firewire... many others have this problem online as well - It is not good for overclocking, as the motherboard heat will cap out before your CPU heat caps out - The motherboards heatsinks are not good enough to be...

  • Summary: overall a decent motherboard especially if on sale,the black pcb looks really sleek and is very rigid.also a plus is the larger heatsinks and heatpipe over the last revision(what were they thinking).A complaint would be the bios,after using Asus and MSI boards this bios is not that great.If you are...
  • Pros: price,color scheme,improved heatsinks over rev 3.0
  • Cons: bios,software suite
