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
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.

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.
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...
