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. 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: This board is running nice and cool with a A8-6600k OC'd to the max. No problems with the ram either. Not my first Gigabyte purchase and definitely not my last.
  • Pros: Heavy duty, solid construction, Massive heatsinks, newer features (bios, number codes, bios switch etc)
  • Cons: Nada

Works great, no problems in linux.

R. Aagaard, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • 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.

Best I could find with AMD a-series support

S Holston, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • 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. So stuck with an apu I needed I find a motherboard that could fit one and my other parts, like two graphics cards and four ram slot. This did the trick, now I'm playing pc games, skyrim for the most part, maxed and modded.

EXCELLENT

  • 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. I did have a problem with getting it to run my memory at the proper speed but that was my fault.

  • Summary: I think this is the only board for the A10 5800K, 2nd to none. Built using an A10 5800K, Noctua NH-U12P, F2A85X-UP4, 1x-Crucial M4 128GB, 2x-Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB, 16GB(4x4GB) 1866MHz(PV316G186C9QK),OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W, 1x-XFX Radeon HD 6770 gddr5, LG GH24NS95 24X DvD drive in a GIGABYTE Sumo 4112 Aluminum Full Tower case..Had originally built to sell but after installing the OS(win 7 ultimate)decided its a keeper!!FAST,FAST and FAST.
  • Pros: EVERYTHING!Good solid board!Performs flawlessly. This mobo with the A10 5800K + 16GB or more of higher frequency ram(1866 and up)= a very fast PC!!
  • Cons: Nothing to whine about here!!Excellent mobo.+++

GA-F2A85X-UPA

Fred, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • 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. I was not able to get out on the internet,and would restart by itself a few minutes after boot up. Also after the restart, came back up in SAFE mode.
