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: 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...
Summary: I recently upgraded my computer, and thinking my old motherboard supported all but only a-series processors, I got the best a-series processor. Then only to find out it only supported the a8's down.
Summary: Good looking, lots of functionalities, great BIOS. My build: Amd A8 6600k Gigabyte AMD FM2 A85X ATX Motherboard G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) SAPPHIRE HD 7850 1GB Antec 450w Power Supply
Summary: I have relied on Gigabyte for several years when building a new system. This time I built a 72 TB RAID storage system and the FM2 A85X ATX Mother board was an ideal choice. The RAID system is up and running and I am very confident using Gigabyte products!
Awesome for overclockers and tinkerers. Tons of features.

Summary: Absolutely fantastic FM2 board. Tons of sensors, every fan controller is 4 pin, the current BIOS (F4) works great with my Trinity APU, and updating the BIOS was super easy. Not to mention it has a backup BIOS chip in case something goes wrong.
Summary: I bought this board about a month ago, along with 4GB Corsair XMS3 and the AMD A6-5400K processor .. running windows 7 pro 64bit. The build up went without any problems, the trouble started right after I allowed the drivers for the mainboard to express install.
