I guess I got lucky

Amy B., Newegg
14 January 2014
  • Pros: I have no problems with this board, it installed well and has been stable ever since install. I haven't had to change out RAM yet so we'll see when the time comes if it won't throw a fit or not.
  • Cons: Fitting a large card in I remember it butted up against the board a lot, and didn't leave much room for error.

Great Board

Rob A., Newegg
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I got lucky with this board. I saw that a lot of folks had issues with one of the RAM slots. I haven't had any issue of the sort. I knew that buying it and I took the gamble. The PC that it was built around was an everyday machine, not used for gaming or video editing.
  • Pros: *Color Scheme *BIOS & Fan Control *RAID Support *Graphics Built In *Overclocking
  • Cons: *Not enough SATA Ports *Instructions slim on Fan Contol

Stable until you introduce new RAM

Joseph K., Newegg
30 July 2011
  • Summary: Honestly, other than that, it was nice, which is why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1.
  • Pros: Worked really well for the 7 months I've had it, up to the point listed below (aka now).
  • Cons: It gets really angry and uncooperative if you try to install any new RAM. I originally used 2x 2GB drives (G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1333), and wanted to upgrade to 2x 4GB drives (" "), but when I inserted them, I got continuous beeps and no bootup at all. After re-inserting them, switching them, and ...

Should have got an Asus

Ron L., Newegg
30 July 2011
  • Summary: After issues with 2 Gigabyte motherboards from Newegg I will never buy another Gigabyte motherboard. They have lost my business indefinitely.
  • Pros: Nothing really. If it doesn't do what it's supposed to what's the point?
  • Cons: Same issues as everyone else. BLSD on windows 7 64 bit install. After resetting CMOS still can't get the bios screen to show. Seems to have memory slot issues. Nothing but problems.

Great MB

Kevin W., Newegg
30 July 2011
  • Summary: MB = GIGABYTE GA-MA78LMT-S2 CPU = AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz RAM = G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB DDR3 1600 7-8-7-24 1.6V VC = EVGA GTX570 HD PS = COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 850W
  • Pros: I like micro ATX boards. I built this board up as a micro gaming computer and it works very well. MB properly detected all my hardware. I also prefer Gigabytes software utilities compared to other vendors.
  • Cons: Nvidia GTX 570 HD did cover up one of the SATA ports, but for micro builds you don't need that many drives anyway.

Beeps on bootup

Terabyte C., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: I use mostly Gigabyte and Asus motherboards. Looks like Asus is going to get most of my sales from here on out.
  • Pros: It's brightly colored
  • Cons: This is the second time I ordered one of these motherboards. I had the same problem both times. I installed it, booted up, and get continuous beeping. The error codes says the graphics card is not inserted all the way, which is difficult to remedy seeing as the graphics card is built into the mot...
