Summary: Always had good luck with Gigabyte Motherboards for a lot of system builds. This build went smoothly as well, up to a point... There are THREE major shortcomings with this board you need to be aware of tho... 1. Only ONE (1) Sata 3 (6Gbs) HDD connector. 2. Why not make ALL the USB ports USB v3.0...?
I wanted to like this board I really did but the minor problems ...

Summary: Simple mother board but been giving me minor problems. I wanted to like this board I really did but the minor problems pop up constantly. The ethernet port sometimes won't work and I have to restart the computer.
Summary: Would hate to buy a new board cause I can't get this card to work. I am not a gamer or an over clocker, just want to use it for a basic recording machine. What is causing this artifacts? Is the bios not managing the resources correctly?
Pros: Cheap Easy to install Had everything I needed
Cons: I am having artifacts in my audio using my PCIe-424 card from MOTU. I have tried both pcie slot and no luck. I am getting the artifacts (pops, clicks) in both Mountain Lion and Windows 7. I know the pcie-424 card is good as it works perfectly in another machine. I have tried everything just don't...
Summary: I ordered this board for an i5-3550 build. The price and everything was very good, paired it with 16GBs of ram I also ordered from here. The title of this product is very misleading. The model number and everything is correct, however there ARE NO 6GB/s SATA slots on here.
