Excerpt: This is my latest build using a AMD 9370 cpu, which as you probably know, is only supported by a handful of boards as of right now. This was a very easy build and everything looks to be of the usual gigabyte excellent quality. I generally only build with two brands lately, gigabyte and one other that I trust, they have given me the least number of hassles.
Summary: I think Amazon just lists the information Gigabyte gave them for this product; I really hope that's the case. First, even under a 64-bit OS --I tested Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD-- It doesn't support the full 32GB of RAM I put in. Other motherboards did recognize the full amount of the same modules. Much more-so, this motherboard only worked properly for 2 days, and then crapped out. I didn't change any of the default settings, so an OOTB board, just failed.
Summary: Ordered this motherboard to replace my Asus Sabertooth 990FX rev 1.01 because all of its fan ports had died. Pros: Looks good in the color scheme I'm utilizing. Cons: Everything else. I received no easy access dock for front panel connections, and Gigabyte's is different from Asus's, which is ridiculous. It should be an industry standard. This mother board DOES NOT overclock. I have an FX8150 unlocked black edition processor.
Summary: I ordered this motherboard with a AMD-FX 8530 CPU and a kit of 1866MHz ram and this motherboard can't run all 4 sticks of ram at 1866MHz really thinking about returning it for a refund and getting a ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z that I know will run the ram at the correct Mhz. I have contacted Gigabyte about this problem and have done all the tests that they wanted me to do and my ram passed all the test and they insist that I have bad ram I have talked with Kingston about...
Summary: I ordered this product because of the great reviews I read about it. I assembled everything correctly when I received the first one and turned the power supply on...... nothing happened. I then tried multiple times to make it work or at least find out what was wrong with it with no luck. I brought the board to a computer technician for testing. It was determined to be a defective board.
Summary: Purchased back in February to go in new build. For 5 months it worked, and I was content with the price versus performance. Then I got the dreaded ''bootloop''. I found out how poorly this motherboard is designed and how non-existent is thier customer service. I feel very let down and will probably end up getting a new MB.
Summary: Great board as far as features. Short Life. Normally I would not pay so much for an MB, but I liked what I saw here. Should have stuck with A5U5.
Pros: Great board for 2 months
Cons: Just as with other reviews. Ran fine for 2 months, came home from work to a black screen. When I reboot, the bios runs, but once an OS attempts to run, it freezes. I tried to re-install windows/linux, each time the install OS attempts to run, it freezes. I replaced everything but the power supply, with no improvement. Started researching and have found several others with my same experience.
Summary: i have bought this motherboard with an fx 8350, 2400mhz ram and an h100i cooler (have no graphics card or hard drive yet) but i went to boot it one day and all fans booted and liquid cooler aswell but there was no beep and its not connected to a screen but i thought it would beep can someone please help me
Summary: Hallo, wollte zwei Gainward GTX570Phatom3 auf dem Board verbauen. Stellte dabei fest, dass der zweite PCEX16 2 Port von der ersten Karte bedeckt wird und somit keine Volle Bandbreite der Karte erhalten kann. :( Zudem wird das Board auch noch falsch beschrieb. Von wegen 5x PCIEX16 Ports. Geld für zweite Karte zum Fenster raus geworfen.
