Summary: I've had this board for three years now and its been great. I've had zero issues. Its part of my development system and runs pretty much 24/7. The only complaint I could give on this is that it supports 1600mhz ddr3 dimms, but as of 2-4-2011, there are no processors that run natively with a 1600mhz front side bus. (They are all 1333mhz) Thats not really a drawback, but something that a user should be aware of as it can cause issues in systems running above 4gb of memory.
Summary: I build a computer by using the suggestions from [...] with wonderful success. this is one of the products he recommended and I was not disappointed! I managed to get a Microsoft of 7.5 on that scale that runs from 1 to 7.9 for every test except the hard drive which got a 5.9. I think I should have gotten the SATA 6 drive.
Summary: Cool looking, durable, and packed with features! MOBO's from Gigabyte uniquely have dual BIOS so that if you "F" things up then you still have a backup BIOS. Firewire, eSATA, USB 3.0, and SATA 6GB all included, as well as an IDE connector. You can upgrade to pretty much any new device and still have your IDE legacy drives.
Summary: This Mobo is very nice! Setup easy and has many many OC options! I only wish that I had bought the I7-875k instead of the 860 =/ oh well! it has given me no problems except for the RAM running at 1333 instead of 1600, should be easy enough to tweak though. I'd recommend this board to anyone building an i5 Or i7 rig!
Summary: This is a great motherboard. Easy to setup an very fast. But, I didn't know something about USB 3.0 and intel. It looks like they haven't made the changes necessary to be full speed. They have a bottleneck. AMD already did, but not intel. I don't have full specifics, but you can check an article about it in [...
Summary: this is by far the best board i have ever encountered i am usually an asus fanboy but this board is so feature rich for the price its remarkable for anyone who is interested in overclocking i got this running my badboy i5 750 @3.6ghz without any stress anybody who has an 1156 socket processor this is the way to go you wont be dissapointed.
Conclusion: It goes without saying that power efficiency is at the forefront of many consumers’ minds today, and for good reason. Whether you are trying to save money or the environment – or both – it’s good to know just how much effort certain vendors are putting into their products to help them excel in this area. Both AMD and Intel have worked hard to develop efficient chips, and that’s evident with each new launch.
