  • Summary: MB was DOA ! PCrush did a cheerful RMA ! Will buy from this seller again. Will recommend to others. Although MB was DOA, I did like the way slots were arranged in a very logical and thoughtful configuration.

DO NOT FLASH BIOS FROM WINDOWS

Cason Bearden, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: So, I decided to update my BIOS to the latest version just to be up to date. Flashed it from Windows with @BIOS tool, recommended by Gigabyte. Everything seemed to go well, and it said it needed a reboot to complete. Pressed reboot.

Great board for the price.

Keith C Fife, Amazon

  • Summary: Easy to install. Only room for two rows of memory, so if you are replacing an old board, you may not be able to use all your old memory. May as well upgrade that too.

Great Value For Everyday Use

Greg L. Bride, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • Summary: Looked long and hard for well-rounded Gigabyte MB to pair with discounted Intel Dual-Core chip. Only performance-related issue is the Intel Graphics adapter. Would have preferred Nvidia graphics for better color saturation and resolution. Very easy setup Windows 7 Pro.

Great Board, but update the bios

MattInDallas, Amazon
19 May 2012
  • Summary: The board is a great value for the money. One thing to watch out for -- update the bios to the latest version in order to support Ivy Bridge processors. I tried installing an i7 3770 and hooking up a DVI cable to the on-board video. Black screen, no beeps during post, etc.

Good legacy support

Randy S., Newegg
9 May 2012
  • Summary: I'd have no problems using this board again on a stock, client build. I'm not sure what or why others are having issues but I've used probably 75+ gigabyte motherboards and have not had 1 DOA yet. I'd use other models for overclocking but I really liked this little board.
  • Pros: For me, a great little board. I’ve used 3 so far with no issues at all. I need parallel still and sometimes serial so this board with the VGA or DVI hookup AND a parallel port is fantastic. It's also nice to have 2 ps2's for those that still need 2. Have had no issues. Used Kingston 1333 value ra...
  • Cons: More rear USB's but I knew that going in. There's only so much room and I don't really consider this a big con. For this type of board having the parallel and PS2 more than compensates for this.
