Summary: Support sucks, no tools to troubleshoot, just expect me to purchase another cpu although it has been the board acting flaky and rebooting reloading bios for no apparent reason. Also, have had to power off my corsair 850W power supply on occasion to even get it to post.
Pros: Fast when working and not corrupting mirrored arrays.
Cons: After three months the board went nuts and reboot, reflashed the bios. After setting the bios up again, my os and data partitions became corrupt. Turns out the board was corrupting my disk while the bios had defaults. So after a week of different setting it was the following settings causing the ...
Pros: Mainboard has good feature set and when they work they work very well.
Cons: If you have a problem with anything sold by Gigabyte don't even bother RMA'ing. Do a quick google search and you will find they most have had my same experience and have RMA'd a product to Gigabyte only to have the product returned to them in the exact same condition it was sent. If you want to r...
Summary: If you want a system that you can rely on, don't buy this board. The issues far outweigh any of the possible perks that it may have provided had I actually been able to enjoy using it.
Pros: Specs look great on paper but that's about it.
Cons: I'm running everything at base clock speeds. No overclocking whatsoever. I've been running this board for a few months now, and I've gone through 3 video cards, 2 different sets of RAM, and swapped out PSU's to try and figure out what the issue is. At first I was having issues with video not disp...
Summary: Before they would continue support, Gigabyte inisisted that I switch out the Corsair 16GB Vengence kit for a couple of 8GB kits that are listed on the QVL. I didn't see the relevance to this issue, and even their own documentation says they can't test with all memory on the market (and the...
Summary: Newegg has always given great support for RMA's and I am thankful for that, still 5 eggs for newegg :)
Pros: It looks great.
Cons: I just had to RMA my third board in a row. I don't know what the problem is with it. I get no post code at all, I even set it up to test it, cpu, cpu fan, RAM, video card. (and even no ram) but I got no codes at all, same thing on all 3 boards.
Summary: I had one of the originall boards. It ran great. OC was very stable No Problems. This bord posted first try. Then it never booted again. Untill I removed the CPU and found a bent pin. I fixed the pin Posted fine 10 to 15 times on my test bench. Now it wont post again. The CPU was never removed.
Summary: The first board i received from Newegg was defective (bent CPU socket pins). Do they even do quality control? The replacement is a nightmare to overclock because of the bios reset bug. I was able to get more stable overclocks and better temperatures on the base ASUS P8P67.
Pros: When I figured out how to keep the board from resetting over and over... My OC is solid.
Cons: At the first failed boot the board resets over and over until you hit the kill switch on your power supply. The COSM reset button doesn't work so you'll have to pull the battery and wait for a minute or 2 so the board will post. This gets old fast when you're overclocking your CPU or RAM.
Summary: 3) Reset button is broken - Every time it is pressed, the system turns on and off 8 times (Yes, 8!!) and the bios is reverted to backup bios and cleared 4) Turns on and off like crazy. Every time I reboot, or boot this computer fresh, it turns on and off at least 4 times.
Pros: Look at the spec list... Sata3, USB3, Nf200, 24-phase power... Lots of great pros on paper, made me buy it. I regret it... lost a week of my life.
Cons: This board is by far the worst p67 board I've delt with. I'm a professional tech and have built at least a dozen p67 based systems in the last couple months. I've purchased the mostly the P67a-ud4 which is great, and the maximus IV extreme which is (in my opinion) the best P67 board available. I ...
Summary: I am using a different board with the same specs, and with the same components and it works fine. I have spoke with the Gigabyte tech support, and I am told again it is most likely a bad motherboard... once again. So now I must RMA again...
Pros: looks like a good board, lots of features.
Cons: Have not been able to use it. I get no post code at all. I just got my replacement for the first one I RMA'd, and another bad board.
