Horrible company with horrible customer service...
E. Seekford, Amazon
10 December 2013
Summary: Purchased the motherboard, used it for a while with no problems. However, the motherboard began to have multiple problems with the video cards that would stop responding randomly and multiple USB ports shutting off completely. Contacted Gigabyte for warranty repair and have had nothing but problems from their customer service. The process is taking weeks and I still have not received the board back yet.
Great Board, Worth Every Penny! Amazing Internal Dolby Sound Card!
12 October 2013
Summary: This is by far one of the greatest boards I've owned! It has a very good Dolby internal sound card and many ports all around including 8 USB ports in the back. The only downsides to this motherboard is that the North Bridge gets very hot under mild gaming and also, there is no IDE port if you still use older disk drives (as there really shouldn't be because sata drives are pretty cheap anyway). Both of these problems can be fixed very cheaply.
Summary: This MB is running much better than any previous MB. I'm using an AMD 955 x4 CPU at 3.22 GHz, 4 GB RAM and the OS is on a 60GB solid state drive. This thing is FAST! I using just 1 video card, Radeon HD5570 and it's entirely adequate for my uses. I liked my previous Gigabyte MB (890) but my memory died. :( Between the SSD and the MB itself this board flies. Booting is faster; Programs load faster; And it seems to have no hangups. It was easier to mount the CPU fan.
Summary: I had bios issues with my FX6200 processor in this board. Windows 7 could only detect 3 cores. I found there are 11 different bios. So, I tried different ones till the F8 bios fixed the problem. Hope this helps someone with my same issues. After all, this is actually a pretty good board and arrived on time too.
