Summary: THIS BOARD IS VERY PICKY WITH MEMORY! I wanted 2x4 gig and there was very little 4 gig modules marked as supported by Gigabyte. After trying about 4 different brands and speeds I went with http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00683X4PQ/ Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 Unbuffered UDIMM 240-Pin Desktop Memory Modules CT2CP51264BA160B that works perfectly.
Summary: I had this motherboard set up for a light gaming machine and media PC. It worked fine up until late March when it decided to have horrible problems. It continually boot loops without POST or getting into BIOS. I've tried multiple CPUs, RAM modules and Power Supplies and came up with the same results. The board must be defective. I'm very disappointed because it's hard to fine socket 775 boards anywhere that support DDR3 memory.
Summary: This board,with it's DDR3 slots,small form, and rock steady build is nice to find available with all the socket changes that have come about.. Couple with an inexpensive and easy to find older 775 cpu,one can build a fairly inexpesnsive,fairly quick build. Wish there was more new 775 boards available..glad to find this one..

Summary: Title says it all. There are other reviews that mention this, but I hope that a human at Amazon will get wind of this failure in their algorithm and fix this error. Had I read more reviews I would not have fallen victim to this incompatibility issue.

Summary: Haven't had any problems with this board, works great. Had this board for about a year and it's still running smoothly. Warning: You will not be able to use a 1333MHz ram unless you over clock it first but you cannot start the mobo without any ram, I recommend getting the (Kungston valueRAM that's a 1066MHz) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001UR61Z0/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_2.
