2nd board

Arcline "Kurt", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Couple of things. The board that I purchased is a replacement for the identical board that literally came apart when I removed my video card. I wasn't expecting that. My choppy video was probably the original motherboard all along and it wasn't until I received the new video card and attempted the...

Great for about 6 months

  • Summary: If you don't mind replacing your board twice a year then this is the board for you. Gave 2 eggs because like I said it was a nice board while it lasted.
  • Pros: Cool look. Installation was super easy. Nice bios GUI.
  • Cons: Bought one of these boards installed it and everything worked fine. purchased a new case and transferred everything over to new case computer would no longer boot. After testing found that the board was dead. Thinking I may have done something to it in the transfer I bought another one. Installed...

Junk!

Mariusz T., Newegg
23 May 2015
  • Summary: All drive speeds degraded after I have activated RAID. No more Gigabyte!
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Junk, junk and junk. Board failed (ver.3.1) after 1 week of use. Just from nowhere it did blip.... bye! Why dual bios didn`t kick in?

Pretty ok, would go with something else rev. 3.0

Austin J., Newegg
21 May 2015
  • Summary: the random crashes could be my graphics card, but it really doesn't make sense. motherboard hasn't died on me yet so that's good.
  • Pros: the mother board looks and feels nice, has been running for more than a year.
  • Cons: Beta bios sucks, not stable when playing games for more than a few hours. I have had strange lock ups and random messages for false fail boots. owning the fx 9590, I am pushing this mother boards limits, but I dont think the north bridge should get hot enough for me to burn myself on it. I have a...

So I was gifted this board from a Patron

Barbara W., Newegg
15 May 2015
  • Summary: If your going to do a build with this board install your sata cables before you mount to the stand offs. Read the front panel wires do not follow the colors listed in the installation guide. NEW EGG you need to talk with UPS about passing the delivery over to USPS.
  • Pros: I make video game videos and content as well as stream. My previous board was an asus that I was give along with my current cpu. fax 8320 The Asus had a 4+1 phase vrm. THIS ONE HAS A 8+2 phase vrm and a heatsink and heat pipe. This already has made a wolrd of difference in terms of performance. A...
  • Cons: WHO EVER DESIGNED THE SATA PORT LAYOUT SHOULD BE BEATEN...Seriously do not put this in a mid atx case you will hate life. ALSO the installation guide's color code for the front panel wires is not always accurate...READ THE WIRES..for some reason some cases with a case speaker use black red which ...

Fair board.

Ranjan K., Newegg
11 May 2015
  • Summary: Will try a different make next time, just for OC.
  • Pros: Easy to work with, works very well, just expected from Gigabyte. But had to cut 2 eggs for the cons below.
  • Cons: Does not OC very well. CPU-NB does not go over 2400, Hypertransport does not OC at all over 2600, even though the possibilities are provided for both. And as noted by others, their Customer Service has a lot of room for improvement - not much phone support, very tardy email response. Also the PCI...

Forget it.

Michael B., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Gigabyte sucks. After it died in 2 weeks trying to run a FX-9590 I broke a memory tab trying different slots. Gigabyte said the board was "unrepairable" and voided the warranty. No alternative. Didn't bother to check the board out.
  • Pros: It looks nice.
  • Cons: Not compatible with AMD FX-9590 like they said when I purchased it.

USB3.0 Connector Issue

Douglas G., Newegg
17 April 2015
  • Summary: Board fired right up to interesting BIOS. Looking forward to using this monster with an older AMD chip. Gotta love AMD and their CPU compatibility across the years.
  • Pros: Well made, great looking. Looks very sturdy, almost armored up.
  • Cons: Board came in box with no shrink wrap or seals. Anti-stat bag had a plain pc of scotch tape holding it closed. CPU socket had no protection on it. Hope it wasn't an "open box". At least I expected a seal on the bag. Board only has 1 (one!) USB 3.0 internal header that is good for twin ports. Spec...

For the first time, no mounting screws were included ...

C.J Reyes, Amazon
17 April 2015
  • Summary: For the first time, no mounting screws were included! Every motherboard I've owned came with mounting screws. If I knew it didn't include them, I would have bought them here.
