Gary R., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Pros: Ive now had this board runing in my system for 7 years. Never a fail as of yet. Just changed the Cmos battery, not because i needed to, but i figured i should anyway after 7 years. Crazy right

5 years now

James A., Newegg
12 April 2013
  • Pros: The board has worked well for over 5 years now with no housekeeping. I have used everything from an 8600 video card to 8800gtxxx to 5770 ati and it doesn't care, I am on my third power supply, the voltage out in the country is pretty spikey even though I do use a couple of surge limiters ahead of...
  • Cons: none that come to mind.

Great board, great value

Jennifer M., Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: I would buy it again.
  • Pros: Great board, no problems installing, I had no problem lining up with holes and have been running it for nearly a year with not one glitch.
  • Cons: Someone else mentioned their graphics card sits close to the chipset heatsink - I agree, but it really hasn't caused a problem for me.

Perfection Overall

Anonymous, Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: Great board even if old and Gigabyte's Bio is superb and easily understandable also completely relevant to a gamer! SLI ready(Which is what I'm doing with 9600's after having an XFX 8400gs 512mb G card in it for a year) It's just a reliable and cheap motherboard, I highly recommend!!!!!!
  • Pros: Works perfectly with a wide range of expansion slots. Two PCI Express slots (SLI) which are compatible with the newer PCI Express 2.0 video cards(They just run a little slower due to mobo restrictions of not being fast enough) Huge amount of RAM slots (16Gb) capable and you can also get faster dd...
  • Cons: Doesn't serve me breakfast...

No problems

Daniel W., Newegg
4 December 2008
  • Pros: Good, stable performance; 4 months with no issues which is a miracle for me. The board has plenty of onboard features, supports SLI, and can take newer AMD CPU's, so it's somewhat future-proofed.
  • Cons: Using a longer video card may get in the way of the chipset heatsink. My card (8800GT) goes right over it, but again I've had no problems myself.

Great Motherboard

Jeremy D., Newegg
1 December 2008
  • Summary: Current system: This board, Brisbane 5400+ Black Edition, EVGA 8800GS Superclocked, 2x1GB Mushkin DDR2-800 at 4-5-4-11 2T, 2x 7200.11 in RAID 1, Terratec Aureon Space 7.1, Antec Earthwatts 500W PSU in a Lian-Li PC-61USB modified with lots'o'quiet stuff. (Replaced a Northwood 2.6 on an ASUS P4G8X-DX)
  • Pros: No problems with it! SATA Raid is nice, comfortable overclocking options.
  • Cons: Perhaps not the best board for Phenom? I wouldn't know. I kind've wish I'd gotten a -D series from Gigabyte, but that's just nitpicking.

Good SLI overclocker

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2008
  • Pros: This board is a great investment. Overclocks my 5000+ Black Edition to 3.2GHz with no problems. Handles my 2 Palit 9600gts in SLI perfectly. Look around and you'll see this is a wonderful board for AM2 Dual core gaming.
  • Cons: The little cover on the heatsinks for the Northbridge must hurt the functionality of the heatsink. Took mine off before I even installed it.

Great Board

MIchael B., Newegg
15 November 2008
  • Pros: Been running this board for over a year now and not a single problem with it
  • Cons: My only complaint is that They didnt include the Sbracket for the Spdif and when I called them about getting one they wanted $50.00 for it for that price I'll just get a good Sound Card with SPDIF
