Pros: Ordered 3 of these and they are all working great after a year. 6.0Gb transfer speed. Supports USB 3.0. 4 memory slots. Heat sink on the board that supplies power to the CPU. A lots of slots and USB ports.
Summary: I won't take off any stars due to the problem sorting itself out.
Pros: It works! I'm not very knowledgeable with motherboards, but my previous board was a Gigabyte 870A-UD3. I picked this one up to go with a FX 8350. I wanted overclocking room, if I ever decided to try something like that out. I also wanted extra PCI slots if I decided to install a second GPU or a s...
Cons: There was one issue I had with the motherboard's audio out port. The sound was very gargled and terrible. I contacted Gigabyte, which took them a good week to get back to me and wasn't able to do anything about it outside of RMA or full OS reinstall. I decided to just use the front case audio out...
Summary: Currently i have Raid 5 With (4x4tb HD) and a raid 1 with (2x2tb HD). I did have to read the manual to figure out the setup but after that all is good.
Pros: Has lot of PCI slots. Love the 2 raid controllers and the fact that i have 8 hard drives plugged in. Having 8 6gb/s sata ports is great.
Cons: This board may have 5 PCI slots but they are really close to each other. So if your planing on putting in 5 Video cards you can because the fans on the cards will take up the slot next to it. But if you buy a PCI Riser board to you can make use of all the slots.
Summary: I was able to reach a stable clock of 4.5GHz on my FX-8350 with this board, and having two PCIe x16 slots is very convenient for crossfire when I do take the step to use it. Very fancy board in my opinion, and I plan to use many of its features!
Summary: I've had this board for a while and i will update this review if anything bad happens. The main problem i have with this MOBO is if you have a HDD from a previous build with an OS with old drivers on it the USB 3 will most likely not work. Other than that it does what it does, and does it well.
Pros: No Coil Whine Always On USB Connectors For Charging More then Enough USB connectors Good Temp. Management with the various Heatsinks Enough PCI Express Slots
Cons: No Onboard VGA or other display port REV 4.1 has no problems Except for driver issues with USB 3 ports
Summary: The board and connectors are mostly matte black. This could be beneficial, depending on your desired theme.
Pros: It supports almost all AM3+ CPUs and offers more than enough features for most users. This board has no stability issues at all. The chipset coolers are big and should be more than adequate to keep the board properly cooled.
Cons: No indicators (LED, or otherwise) on the board. This will make troubleshooting difficult. There is no PCIe Gen 3.0 (this is a flaw of the FX platform.) There are not enough fan connectors for cooling in a high-power machine. You'll need a fan controller.
