Finally died

Jason B., Newegg
2 December 2012
  • Summary: This was purchased for use as a HTPC and torrent box in the Silverstone LC19 case. Last night the onboard video locked up during a 1080p x264 movie and never came back after reboot. It was starting to show snow and other distortion when any video was placed on pause including iMDB previews.
  • Pros: Onboard HDMI (for April 2008) Lot's of ports
  • Cons: Overheated easily requiring a good dusting a few times prior to restarting.

GIGABYTE rebates is a SCAM!!!!

Ka H., Newegg
29 September 2009
  • Summary: very bad customer service, no one picks up the phone for any rebate problem, i left my no. in the voice mail and sent them few emails, no reply at all, dont buy their stuff unless you want to deal with the trouble like this, they suck big time!!!!!
  • Pros: it works.
  • Cons: On the rebate from it said "Only one rebate per qualifying product per household per promotion will be accepted. multiple purchases on a single product only qualify for one rebate per promotion." so i bought GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 and GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H together under the same promotion. but ...

Good features but questionable reliability

Kulbhushan B., Newegg
26 July 2009
  • Summary: Actually my review is for similar GA-MA78GM-S2H.
  • Pros: This is a feature rich motherboard for comparatively priced ASUS's motherboard. It worked great until it broke!
  • Cons: There were warning signs in reviews about it suddenly dyeing but I went with it any way. It worked great until one day it suddenly died and will not post. I followed the RMA process and it was repaired and delivered in about 2 weeks. I have never had a MB die on me in last 15 years. For me reliab...

Nice Board - No Problems

Dennis C., Newegg
25 July 2009
  • Pros: I do computer refurbs where I replace the mobo, processor and memory, etc. in Dull and other older national brand computers for customers that don't want to buy a whole new computer (actually, they are, they just don't realize it). I've used this board and it works great paired with a AMD 7850 Ku...
  • Cons: I wish Gigabyte would let you buy two on the rebate, other than that, nothing bad. Can't even knitpick....

A Complete Micro-ATX board

Benoit B., Newegg
24 July 2009
  • Summary: Do everything board at a good price. Good options for futur upgrades. Would buy it again. Setup is...AMD 5050e, Radeon 4670 Ultimate, SB Audigy, Kingston HyperX 2gig Dual and the rest is standard.
  • Pros: Complete board with all the I/O's that you need. Quality components, including solid caps for the CPU but quality electrolytics for the balance of the board. Dual Bios and bios is VERY easy to update, no need to boot in prompt. Have a 5050e on this board but the board accepts cpu's with 2/3/4 cor...
  • Cons: It's a micro-atx board, so your only have two PCI slots. I just needed one for my Audigy card. But it does have four Dual-Channel memory slots. Everything is cramped, not much space between connectors, but thats expected from a micro board.
