I would STRONGLY recommend against using RAID

G. Perkins, Amazon
3 November 2015
  • Summary: Be warned, this board does not have AHCI for running SSD's, so one cannot use an SSD with this board. Furthermore, I would STRONGLY recommend against using RAID, as I had a RAID 1 mirror get degraded, then corrupt both drives.

Good little board

Richard S., Newegg
7 May 2014
  • Summary: I have absolutely no idea what the guy in the comment blow me is talking about with his video card! Put the motherboard in a bigger case if your card doesnt fit! Its not the board's fault.
  • Pros: Been working great since 2011. I bought this board in particular because it has the ability to unlock the 4th core on some AMD Athlon II triple core cpus.
  • Cons: This is a con right now in 2014, but not back in 2011 when I bought the board. The system ram installed can only go to 8 gigs. At present time for the average person that is good, but for people like me who have been hogging system ram for use in a ramdisk for example, its a roadblock.

Great little board.

Marcelo A., Newegg
4 July 2013
  • Summary: I love the small size but was disappointed at the limited space for expanding, I was able to over come it with heavy searching of a card that would fit but all the same a very small, very minor gripe about the board. Great little board.
  • Pros: Price was great and small form.
  • Cons: A bit too small which limits you to what type of video card you want to add. To anyone wondering, check out EVGA's 650ti, non boost. those are small enough to fit in here and pack a decent punch.

  • Summary: Good board at a good price.
  • Pros: Worked great with the Athlon 215 and with the Phenom 975.
  • Cons: Tried an AMD FX 6100, but it failed to recognize it. Ended up using a Phenom 975 instead and built another system with the FX.

It's okay for a very basic build

Joel S., Newegg
18 March 2013
  • Pros: It was easy to install and feels like it has been solidly made. It runs stable so long as you don't mess with overclocking anything on it. The price on the mother board was okay, I would go as far as to say it could have 15 dollars more. This should not cost more than 40 dollars. It is no longer ...
  • Cons: The cons are many, but at this price point you can't expect too much. My original intention was to use this as my primary machine and overclocking an fx 4100. Well that wen't out the window pretty quickly since overclocking on this thing is a nightmare. Could find stability on a single attempt ev...

not happy with gigabyte

Michael W., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Pros: good deal when I bought it.
  • Cons: First one would not power on (fans would start, then turn off seconds later, no display). Newegg was great about getting me another one quick, since it was a gift for my grandmother. Long story short, she got blue screens and buggy boot ups. After many hours of testing, I found it was Ram Slot 1 ...

Gigabyte GA-M68MT-S2

Joseph P., Newegg
10 November 2012
  • Summary: If you find this somewhere else as reliable as newegg then buy it. maybe its a hit or miss with some of these but i was very lucky with mine and it was well worth it.
  • Pros: Bios is very easy to use. It unlocked my Amd Athlon II x3 3.2ghz 450 Rana INSTANTLY with no issues at all. Stressed tested it all day with no issues at all. Now its a Phenom II X4 B50 (win). So far i have had no issues whatsoever with this mobo and for the price this really was a bang for your buck.
  • Cons: Discontinued =[ guess people bought it for a good reason ;)
