failed after 1.5yr

Steven C., Newegg

  • Summary: while reading the reviews, it seems there are a few tweaks that may have avoided this problem. I am now in the rma process with Gigabyte
  • Pros: I have liked the Gigabyte brand for many years as it is often in the mid-range of price/performance. I have probably purchased more than 20 Gigabyte boards with no issue to report. This system worked well for about a year and a half.
  • Cons: It now will not boot; fans spinning, but no post, & no raster I cleared cmos, and removed the board from the case. Same result. no boot, no raster, yet fans running. Visual observation finds no obvious damage. I did have the power go out a few days ago. The system was connected to a ups.

A lot for Windows, Linux has issues.

Adam P., Newegg

  • Summary: Used one of these on a recent Windows 7 64-Bit build. For 7, this board worked great. With some issues resolved, this board is part of what is now a reliable Windows 7 system that proves good performance for the money and with plenty of PCI, PCI-E slots for growth. Having 4 RAM slots is fantastic.
  • Pros: A lot of room to grow ! Lots of slots ! Good layout. Makes for the foundation of a Windows box with good value.
  • Cons: Original firmware pretty buggy. Tricky to get Ubuntu 10.04 to boot with a VGA monitor. With original firmware, hard to get Linux 2.x Kernel going. Might require Windows to update the formware.

It's okay I guess

  • Summary: I've had it for a few months now, and it hasn't exactly broken. But some of the on-board usb ports did't function out of the box, and I couldn't get a return for a new one.
