  • Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS BUNDLE. I had the same problem as another reviewer; TIgerDirect shipped me the incorrect items. After a few emails back and forth, I was informed that the bundle as listed no longer exists.

Do Not Buy If You Are Expecting Them to Send You What Product Description Says

RvL1978, Amazon
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...

Great bundle.

Stan Eckel, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Would definitely buy again and recommend for anybody wanting to build using the APUs from AMD.
  • Pros: It does what it is suppose too. For an FM2 socket board, it really rocks and the daulBIOS feature is awesome.
  • Cons: None

Stable and reliable so far

Anonymous, Newegg
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Had my UPS die on boot up a week after the machine was assembled. The BIOS was corrupted, however the Dual-BiIOS feature repaired the wrecked BIOS without problem. On-board analog audio is noisy, hiss and pop-corn noise. OK for listening, but unusable for recording.
  • Pros: Stable, well thought-out design. Dual-BIOS is very handy during UPS failures (see other thoughts). Four system fan headers and a CPU fan header, five stars for that. Tons of USB headers for expansion.
  • Cons: Not a fan of the horizontal SATA connectors - minus one star. Firewire would have been nice.

Great board if it worked

Kerry D., Newegg
13 September 2013
  • Summary: This was the first gigabyte motherboard I have used. Despite mixed reviews it tried it and it died. Such is the world of computers. It would be a great board if it were reliable
  • Pros: Good quality of materials and great construction, Well labeled and easily identifyable headers. Easily mounted in computer case, with perfect alignment. The utilities offered on the support media were well thought out and valuable to people with moderate to expert skills, novices won't find much ...
  • Cons: Agonizing and irritating death. Worked great for about a week after the initial build. Then went into an unannounced reboot mode. Progressively went from one reboot a day to every 5 minutes

RAID, forget about it

Thomas W., Newegg
1 September 2013
  • Pros: Excellent features, ports and design. Very stable
  • Cons: My primary purpose in buying this MB was for a RAID array and it simply doesn't work, I'm simply unable to get the driver loaded under Windows and no support for Linux. I didn'e have this kind of problem with my previous MD, an ASROCK USB ports don't come alive until drivers are loaded. (I attrib...
