Summary: Love this motherboard! I am using this board with an AMD FX8350, 16GB RAM, SSD, AMD RADEON 7850, A Coolermaster hydro Series Water Cooler, in a mid size ATX case. This motherboard has plenty of room for all of my components and it is ultra stable. I did have some problems when loading everything the first time but it was due to BIOS settings that I did not check. Once I got all the BIOS settings right this thing was rock solid.
Summary: After a bit of looking around for a decent motherboard for my build, I decided on this offering from Gigabyte. I recieved a revision 3.0 "Ultra Durable 4" version of this board, which i believe addressed some minor complaints of the previous versions. So far everything has worked like a charm! I've paired this with an FX 8350 CPU, 2x 4 GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866 MHz RAM, a GTX 970 GPU, and a Rosewill Capstone 1000W modular power supply.
Summary: After procrastinating for a year or more, I built a new box, and this is the core I settled on. Paired with a FX-series Vishera 8-core Black Edition, this board is simply sick. I do a lot of virtualized work, some coding and a bit of gaming, and this thing just eats it up and comes back for more. My previous box was good - and built on a Gigabyte board as well - but this thing is just outrageous. Standard Gigabyte board, very meaty and solid.
Summary: Flawless operation with an FX-8550 4 GHZ CPU, 32 GB of G.Skill Ripjaws RAM, SSD, and RAID 10. In short, everything worked the first time with no major problems that I didn't insert myself. (RAID cable fell off) Very high quality board, plenty of ports of all shapes and sizes. My only gripe with these Gigabyte boards is the placement of the SATA ports on the edge where you can't see them (or touch them) in an ANTEC 900 case.
Summary: Using it now as I type. Easy to install. Runs well. No problems. I bought one for my son to assemble a computer for himself. He liked his build so I bought one to build a system for myself. I have tended toward the A-series processors, but elected to to an 8350 this time. So far so good. Used the Cooler Master HAF-Stacker case. I like it as well. I would not hesitate to buy this again unless I needed integrated graphics then I would go with an FM2 board using and A-10.
Summary: Should have gotten this mobo first. Got it's older brother first and kicked myself as the older model (the GA-870A-UD3) is not SLI compatible. This mobo is. I have had no issues with this install. The Bios interface has a mouse on it as well, which makes it a little nicer to deal with... looks a little more high-tech. Great board, no issues at all.
Summary: I recently upgraded from an FX-6300 and a 7870 GHz so I wanted a new motherboard to properly run my new FX-8350 for the 8+2 power phase. I'm running with two R9 290's and I have not had a single issue with that setup. The board also supports another 290 if I ever decide to get one. Overclocking isn't an issue of course, and my 8350 has been pushed to 4.7 GHz with no problem. I could go higher, but I haven't had a need for it yet.
Summary: I am glad I purchased this motherboard. It was inexpensive (compared to other companies), works great & allows me to go in a lot of different ways with add-ons & configurations. Excellent purchase!
