Fantastic still, after 5+ years

Stephen M., Newegg
6 April 2015
  • Summary: I just added a newer Samsung SSD, an 850 EVO 250gb that plugged right into the very forward-thinking eSATA III port. I have made lots of changes to the hardware and software config on this box, and it still screams.
  • Pros: Dual BIOS (Use can not change the back-up copy) Decent audio performance
  • Cons: I'll never use all the software tools they give you

great handy go-to's

raajiv r., Newegg
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these on sale for about $27 total. One is used as a removable boot USB device that i put the latest Ubuntu live cd on. Allows for a fast install and or live USB boot. The other just holds important documents incase my hard drive dies. Both drives do their job well and fast!
  • Pros: Small No-lost caps Lanyard compatible
  • Cons: None

Junk

louis s., Newegg
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte will not honor your warranty, so good luck... Even if you are so lucky to get a warranty number, you can't track it as their warranty website is broken. Primary graphics slot went out within a few months of ownership, was never able to successfully overclock CPU or memory (tried several...
  • Pros: Few
  • Cons: Faulty, had several components go out (PCI-e slot, onboard SATA)

Great Board - Years of service..

S. Pettit "Just Me", Amazon
4 February 2011
  • 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...

Motherboard OK, but software disappointing

Michael G., Newegg
20 December 2010
  • Summary: I know that the real overclocker's will be thinking: Why are you not OCing in the BIOS? Answer: I don't have the knowledge or time. It's only easy if you know how to do it....
  • Pros: Motherboard has no problems so far
  • Cons: I hoped to use the EasyTune Quick Boost functionality to do a moderate OC. I don't have time to do "real" overclocking (this is a work computer), and the online reviews seemed to indicate that this would be relatively painless. Well, the utility does not work at all on my machine. It installs but...

A little slow to boot

Nathan G., Newegg
20 December 2010
  • Summary: I haven't had too much time to learn the total ins and outs of this motherboard, so maybe after changing some Bios settings, the time to boot can be lowered.
  • Pros: It is a decent quality motherboard.
  • Cons: The boot process is a little slow. It takes about 15 seconds to prepare to load the OS.

Was great till...

Jason A., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I thought it was a dirty computer after the new video card wouldn't work. So I went over with clean brushes, and a can of air. Still cannot get it to work. If this isn't resolved this week, I might have to consider buying a new MB and I have a feeling I won't go with Gigabyte even though it's my...
  • Pros: Worked great for almost 3 months.
  • Cons: All of a sudden one day, Dead. Just hangs before ram test. Cannot enter bios and cannot use cdrom. MB lights up, fans turn on. I thought it was the video car so I bought a new one... nope. I thought it was a power supply connection so I tried new ones... nope. I thought it was the monitor so I tr...

Shining Star!

William N., Newegg
9 December 2010
  • Summary: Gigabyte has done it's homework with manufacturing of this board. Hook up a pair of 5750's for cheaps and there isn't a game you can't play..., at least for now. I wax Phenom II X4's with 460's all day long!
  • Pros: Running stable at 4.2 ghz all day long with back to back benchmarks in 3d Mark 11. There is so much I love about this board. THIS IS THE BOARD IS A MUST HAVE! The features that this board has are too numerous to mention. I use it as a server cause it has dual gb eithernet. On some days I use it t...
  • Cons: This board doesn't like the new Sata 3 SSD's (C300's) by Crucial.., which I have 2 in raid 0. Going back to Intel's Sata 2 chip on the board yielded better results. I don't know why this has been a problem for me? I think I'll buy a Sata 3 raid card in the future.
