  • Pros: All I needed
  • Cons: used older CPU to update bios and still runs my FX9970 at 4.0GHZ instead of 4.7GHZ EVEN PAID a reputable tech center to check it out and they can't get it up to speed.

DOA

17 August 2014
  • Pros: ?
  • Cons: DOA, a few months ago I ordered an Asrock 990FX Extreme3. 2 DOAs later I got a refund and got an ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0. It worked like a charm. This time I ordered a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5. It arrived DOA. I got a refund and bought an ASUS 990FXA R2.0 Sabertooth. Works like a charm.

Gigabyte support

April W., Newegg
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Darn shame. love gigabyte boards but this unhelpful experience has really soured me on a company that I have been dealing with for years.
  • Pros: Nice while it lasted.
  • Cons: Board is bad, sent back to Gigabyte for review. All they said on the RMA was tested and no problems found. Got it back and it still has the exact same issue. Bios will not even load.I don't know how they "tested" it, but obviously not thorough enough. All brand new hardware in the PC. All from NEWEGG by the way. VERY VERY disappointed in Gigabyte support. this is the 5th Gigabyte board I've owned and always had great experience. Very disappointing that the first time ...

bad news

daniel l., Newegg
6 August 2014
  • Summary: bought to use with a new 9370 CPU but system crashes constantly. I already own two earlier models that work flawlessly but this new UEFI BIUS is terrible. Even with all temp control disabled CPU clock varies wildly between 1.9 ghz and 4.0 GHZ. CPU crashes almost if run at 4,5 ghz despite H100I cooling system. CPU cores keep dropping out even though BIOS set to have all run.
  • Pros: it boots up
  • Cons: crashes frequently, reboots often or hangs up.

VERY dissapointed

April W., Newegg
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Expected a lot more from a 200 motherboard. I use it for HTPC and now cannot watch any movies due to a failed, expensive product.
  • Pros: Worked well, while it lasted
  • Cons: Died 2 days outside of Newegg 30 day warranty. Won't even go into BIOS anymore. So much for "Durable" Dual bios doesn't do you much good if you cant even boot into it to change to the other. VERY disappointed this is my 4th Gigabyte board, the first time I have bought a high end one from them. Will probably be the last. I have purchased 99 dollar boards from them years ago that still work fine to this day. VERY disappointed.

Poorly Designed, Non-Durable Motherboard.

Rektem, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this board for my gaming PC. It worked well for about 3 months. After that it failed to POST. After eliminating all other components attached to the board I found that the board had just sort of crapped out. There is no "Beep" error given; the CPU fan turns on, then turns off after about 5 seconds. It still puts power out of the USB ports though. Probably the most expensive cell phone charge I have ever purchased. Would not recommend.

DOA - Do Not Buy

Michael G., Newegg
26 April 2014
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: The motherboard was dead on arrival. When you call customer service, you get sent to voice mail. You then need to use their horrible website which still does not let you speak to a person. They're incredibly slow to respond through email and unhelpful. I will absolutely never buy anything from Gigabyte again.
