good mother

Amazon Customer, Amazon

A very good motherboard

Nick, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: Pros: -Capable of 3-way SLI (or crossfire) -8 SATA3 ports, with the ability to run multiple RAID arrays -Fully loaded back panel Cons: -Northbridge heatsink obstructs top PCI-E x1 slot; cards that extend past the slot itself will probably not fit -If you use 3-way graphics, and your bottom-most card is double-wide, it will obstruct the headers (USB, front audio, etc) on the bottom, although I'm not sure this is avoidable My experience: Motherboard was DOA, but Amazon was...

DOA

Mark Alexander, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: There is not much to write about a product that is DOA. It had exposed copper on the circuit board which is a major manufacturer defect, how this passed their QA process is beyond me. Want a better product go Sabertooth TUFF!

Need to call their tech support

MICHAEL J HOLDER, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Built the system but the bios doesn't seem to boot up, speaker doesn't beep and video doesn't come up. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, not sure. Don't think I zapped it b/c I used an antistatic wrist strap.

Great board, decent vrm

Logan Wall, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: This board has plenty of great features and looks pretty good. BIOS takes a bit to get used to but once you do it works very well. You also should update the bios to the beta bios the first chance you get. The only issue that I've noticed is that the VRM's aren't of very high quality. I'm using an 8350 and have it clocked at 4.8 and when it goes under heavy load the v droop is pretty bad. LLC helps but adds more heat.

1100T and SSD are playing nicely now

Programming Kat, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Great updated motherboard for an AMD 1100T. This motherboard may have an older chip running it [older BIOS format], but now my SSD and 6 HDDs are now running in unison...not as fast as my i7, but faster than my i5 with no OC'ing yet. This board has everything I needed and my Antec 920 water block has room to breath...which is a good thing. No complaints or wishes for anything more...this board is great in my newly built HTPC.

It isn't Asus.

Hyjanks "Hyjanks", Amazon
27 November 2013
  • Summary: After two attempts to buy an Asus motherboard, both of which arrived DOA, I finally ordered one of these. Since I am replacing an older Gigabyte board, I will be familiar with all of its quirks, installation procedures and BIOS (which is nearly identical to my previous board). This one fired up immediately, so I was able to FINALLY have a computer that works.
