Good board.

  • Summary: Good board... but good luck updating the BIOS. Apparently, you can only download the flash files in a format that can only be extracted with a utility that will not run on Windows 7. I haven't found a way to get the flash file in any other format, and the @BIOS application was worthless (just tells you it can't find the file, whether you try to download it from a server via the Internet, or from the download file (even after you unzip it).

It's a motherboard, it works.

  • Summary: Booted up just fine, absolutely 0 issues in terms of 'performance'. It's a motherboard. It does what it says. My ONLY complaint is that the SATA connectors on the board aren't facing to the side, but rather straight up. This makes connecting a videocard into the lower PCI slot somewhat annoying because the GPU almost competley covers all the SATA ports. I have to use 2 'elbow' shaped SATA cables for the cords to sneak behind the GPU.

good MB, Great Service

BSL, Amazon

  • Summary: I had not built a computer in a decade or so. Things sure have changed! It was time to leave my laptop and get a more powerful computer to run SolidWorks on. Buying one already built was stupid expensive so I did my homework and settled in on a Gigabyte MB. It had good ratings. I received my new MB and it installed easily, bios was easy to use and the system runs witout a glitch. Initially my MB would not work.

Good stable and inexpensive board

Derald Solomon, Amazon

  • Summary: Pretty simple review. I installed an Intel I5-4690S CPU and it worked out of the box with version FB of the BIOS. I later flashed the BIOS to the latest version FE. This is revision 2.0 of the motherboard. My goal was to use this board to power an Intel CPU for a Mac OS X digital audio workstation that would moonlight as a Windows gaming desktop. Using this board allowed me to install Mac OS X without any problems or compatibility issues.

Not mATX.

  • Summary: Looked for a cheap Haswell mATX motherboard and I found this. Reading the product name would give you the indication that it's a mATX board since that's what says first. After buying it along with a mATX case, I found out that it was NOT a mATX board, but just a standard ATX board. Of course, one could have spotted that out by just looking at the motherboard and I should have done so myself.
