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

Awesome MOBO for HTPC & Gaming

Benny G., Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Pros: Awesome MOBO for my HTPC & Gaming. Setup was easy, but you do need to get the latest update from Gigabyte. Bios very easy to work with. My HTPC set up -------------- AMD A10-6800K 4.1GHz GIGABYTE GA-F2A85X-UP4 Seagate ST3000DM001 Barracuda 7200.12 Hard Drive - 3TB CORSAIR Vengeance 16 GB(4X4) DDR...

Overheating CPU Maybe

Nicholas F., Newegg
3 June 2013
  • Pros: I love this motherboard and the look of it, everything SEEMS to be going fine.
  • Cons: I bought this with an A10 5800K CPU and a GeminII S524 Heatsink/fan cooler. On stock clocks it is idling around 40C and peaking around 90C under load. What bothers me is the stock heatsink hits these same temps. I'm not overclocking any thing, and I'm not sure if it is a sensor or the motherboard...

Good board so far

  • Summary: If you don't like the default BIOS loading screen just because its not the usual black scree with white flickering text you're so used to you can disable it.. but even then its an odd red logo that i disliked even more with no text : (
  • Pros: This board has been great thus far, nothing has failed yet, there was a manual that was actually written in English by English speaking people ( and separate manuals for other languages of course). Pictures in the manual would make putting this together easy for anybody and theres a ton of inform...
  • Cons: Only thing I've found thus far was when i first installed windows ( had the wrong disk, was 32 bit wanted 64 ) my CD drive that i used to load windows wouldn't recognize the disk with the chip-set drivers.. unsure of why this occurred. But when i loaded up win 7 64 bit, this time around i made su...

Great Board

Michael L., Newegg
23 March 2013
  • Summary: Worth the money.
  • Pros: This is a great board all around and it more then meets my needs. This board replaced a failed Biostar motherboard which only lasted three weeks. The BIOS is visually the best one I've ever worked with. Normally what you see is a very basic old school DOS look. This board raised the bar.
  • Cons: None so far

Works great so far..

Clyde P., Newegg

  • Summary: i'm using an amd apu-10 5800k, though i don't think i'll need to overclock, i wanted to buy intel but this was alot more affordable though not as fast
  • Pros: very easy to install, love the bios interface, booted right up without errors.
  • Cons: would like to see onboard firewire 800/400 ports for this type of motherboard. I am now going to install a firewire card, so not a big deal.
