Junk Died After Two Days

Kristen P., Newegg
23 February 2015
  • Summary: This is my first experience with Gigabyte and likely my last. I purchase well over 100 motherboards yearly and Gigabyte most likely won't be any of them.
  • Pros: None that I could tell. Hopefully a good RMA process??
  • Cons: I own a business where I put together a ton of computers. I had this motherboard waiting quite some time to be put into service. Finally added it to a build and it lasted two days and won't post. Tried multiple known good PSU's etc and nothing.
