Do Not Buy If You Are Expecting Them to Send You What Product Description Says
8 May 2014
Summary: I bought this combo based on the title and product description. However, instead of receiving the GIGABYTE AMD GA-F2A85X-UP4 Motherboard (as the title said), the AMD A10 5800K CPU (as the product description said), and 4GB of Kingston RAM, I received a Gigabyte F2A55M-DS2 Motherboard, a AMD A8 5600K CPU and no ram. I have contacted the seller (TD) to try and get this resolved, but for now I cannot recommend that anyone buy this bundle.
Summary: im sad to say it was not working when it arrived. i had hoped since this was my first build that i had just made an error in hooking everything up and overlooked something. I couldnt find anything i missed so i decided to pick up another board from micro center to see if it would work an yup. worked just fine. Still think this would make a great board for my computer...i just drew the short straw this time.
Summary: This board is of excellent quality. It has lots of fan headers, plenty of PCIe slots, and even a legacy PCI slot, and it was at a really great price. I highly recommend this board if you are running a socket FM2 CPU.
Summary: I bought this board for a new litecoin mining rig (heavy GPU utilization, on 24/7 computer). On arrival the NIC was not working, confirmed this with Gigabyte support online. I did an RMA through gigabyte and they sent me a brand new board. I was pleasently suprised as I usually have to go through the vendor for computer part RMAs. So +1 to gigabyte for the easy RMA process, unfortunately I cant get more than 4 stars since it had a faulty part at the start.
Summary: These system boards are some of the best I've seen. No comment on factory support because it works just fine. This is the first time in a number of years that I've used AMD processors and, so far this one is every bit as good as an i5 Intel. Not a gamer so I'm not hammering on the hardware. And have yet to do any full motion video editing with it. Lots of SATA and USB3 interfaces. Nice trick having a system power button on the MB.
Summary: It's a big motherboard, but so far has proven to be very solid. Using it as a linux workstation, loaded up ubuntu and then manually downloaded the video card drivers, had some initial problems when running three monitors with the anti-screen tearing KDE stuff enabled but when I turned it off there hasn't been any other issues. There are new versions of the drivers now that probably fix it, but it's so stable right now that I have not bothered.
