motherboard buy as part of kit

grumpy,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: bought this MOBO as part of a kit. It is a decent board but scaled down with the intent to be used in a small chassis. There was only one system fan and my box requires two. Not sure of what to do now.

Very good price for a resonably priced MB

  • Summary: I wasn't expecting a lot from the low priced board, but after the installation, I was very satisfied. I put a Intell 3.10 gb processor on it and it was more then I expected in performance. I higly recommend it.

Disappointed

Game4Life,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Bought this board as part of a combo with a processor and ram. Had it for a couple of months and everything seemed fine. That is until I tried to upgrade the ram and discovered through trail and error that one of the DIMM slots was defective. So instead of a board capable of 16GB of ram, my board is only capable of 8GBs of ram from a single slot.

Not Bad for NAS

  • Summary: I sympathize with wizwar100 (Could Be Better), the naming used by Gigabyte is confusing. B85M-HD3 has 2 memory slots while B85M-D3H has 4 memory slots. Catch that? I didn't at first. No star deducted because it isn't really about the board's performance.

Inexpensive no frills motherboard that just works.

  • Summary: Pro: If you are not big into overclocking or having RAID setups in your computer, then this is a pretty decent board. It has just enough features that would satisfy most and the price is right Con: The ONLY BIGGEST complaint I have with this board is the lack of fan headers. Seriously? 1 CPU and 1 case fan?? Most M-ATX case have a front can and a rear fan for exhaust. I would of liked to see at least one more fan header.

working great...NOT a review that has nothing to do with the buyers lack of common sense^^^^^

Navy Guy, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this board as it had the chipsets I needed to do an xpenology build for a server. It is working beautifully. perfect price to performance ratio. I can saturate my T1000 eithernet with the built in NIC and it had enough sata3(6gig) ports for me to run a decent raid 10 on 4 WD drives. I'm certain not everyone would buy this for my specific purpose, but for what I am doing, it is a great board, low power consumption and it's expandable which is what I needed.
