I was pretty disappointed about this purchase

RKS, Amazon
29 October 2014
  • Summary: Audio did not work... Had to buy a new audio card to get sound. Neither Front panel USB-III works...although back panel sockets worked. Had to buy a 4-Port Hub to have front panel USB-III All in all, I was pretty disappointed about this purchase... I should get some refund for these issues.

Did not work as desired

Jim R. Cummins, Amazon
15 September 2014
  • Summary: After having problems with a different motherboard, I thought that this might be the solution as it has many of the same features. Unfortunately it did not recognize more than one of my GTX460 video cards so could not run SLI. Often it would not even POST. Board was returned for a refund.

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.

Unlucky!

John Gray, Amazon

  • Summary: The board looks great! I am excited to un pack it and install it. Plug everything in and then ...... NOTHING! Powers up refuses to P.O.S.T. Refuses to do anything except give me the room temperature. Sadly I have to RMA my new toy before I got the chance to play with it!

Ummm... backward movement?

cranky, flipkart.com

  • Summary: Bought this to upgrade from a Gigabyte 790X board, two years after the 7 series was discontinued. Not a good choice. Let me explain. The board now supports only half-length PCIE cards in the first slot, the NB heatsink blocks the space behind the slot. If you run two large graphics cards (like I do) you have no choice but to use that slot for soundcards or a wireless card. You can't. I don't know many cards that will fit that slot.

Gigabyte hat mich leiter endtäucht

Loverboy "FH", Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: Wollte nach langer zeit mal wieder ein Gigabyte board einbauen (Vorher ASUS) und obwohl ich auf alles achtete (Elektroniker gelernt) und nix ging. Kurzer anlauf und weg. Immer wieder versucht, sogar CPU und Ram getauscht, nix. Hatte Nase voll, zurückgeschickt und Asus Sabertooth R2 eingebaut und lief sofort. So macht euch selbst ein Bild davon was ich jetzt von Gigabyte halte.

User Review

Pierre-André, Mindfactory.de
17 June 2012
  • Summary: Moin Moin an den Norden . Also ich erfuhr das dieses Board bereits mit der rev 3.0 UEFI Desktop Biso gibt . Es ist Traurig das man das Board nicht wie hier bei dem Großen Vertrieb von Mindfactory dieses Board nicht zu bekommen ist , sondern weiter rev 1.0 . Ne das muss man zu Alternate gehen wo man die rev 3.0 bekommt und das auch noch für ein 10ner weniger .
