Intel's AMT features are a PITA to use.

G. Belli, Amazon
14 January 2015
  • Summary: Gigabyte has been my go-to brand for motherboards since arout 10 years, their products are of exceptional quality, very stable and feature rich. In the price range of this board I expected dual BIOS and at least two case fan headers, but you only get one for CPU fan and one for an additional fan.

  • Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out.

DOES NOT WORK WITH LATE MODEL CPUs

B. Stallman "avandelay20", Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this MB hoping to use it with my new i7 4790S CPU. The first MB I got from Amazon, I thought the MB was DOA since it failed to POST (no video, no internal speaker beeps - yes, I have an internal speaker which works on other MBs just fine).

Comes with good documentation

Arch D. Robison, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: The board has been working fine so far. The manual was easy to understand and the connections were well documented, both in the manual and on the board. This is the first motherboard I've dealt with since the late '70s, so I can't compare it with others.

Nice but flawed by BIOS

Mark L., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • Summary: Well constructed, excellent selection of ports and connectors, fast booting. Lack of functional WakeOnLAN is a dealbreaker though.
  • Pros: Has the exact combination of PCIe/PCI slots I needed in mATX form factor to fit my HTPC case.
  • Cons: WakeOnLAN is horribly broken -- machine wakes up immediately after shutdown even without a LAN cable connected. No workaround found yet, other than completely disabling it in the BIOS. BIOS has menu settings for AMT BIOS extensions, but no information on how to activate or deactivate the AMT. And...

Working so far but no XP support

John G., Newegg
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Will be using both for business and hobby (video and audio recording and editing). It is early days and I am still setting up. Will post later if anything significant changes.
  • Pros: I am setting up a Windows 7 64-bit system and so far it is working well in that environment. No problems or issues! Gigabyte support is great - they respond promptly, accurately and directly to the point. No "try this, try that, format the other, start over" from them!
  • Cons: No firewire/1394 (which is clear from the specifications - no complaints or egg removal for this and I assume I can add this if I need it.) There is no XP support - no drivers and it simply won't work in XP. I know Microsoft discontinues support in 2014, but there are still plenty of XP systems a...

Good motherboard with Intel vPro remote features

Redha AL-SAEGH, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this motherboard specifically for the Intel vPro feature. Once it was activated, I installed Windows 7 remotely using a virtually mounted ISO. So far, I love it. Cons: vPro settings are obfuscated and difficult to locate.

Rate it 4 to 5 Star

D McC "Derek", Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Was just what I wanted to upgrade my PC, I was also installing Corsair memory which I believe is made by gigabyte so could be sure it all matched. Probably would have give it 5 stars but as it's my first build I have no experience to compare it with

Perfekt

lordofkonsum, Prisjakt
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Bra skit, installerade ubuntu via VNC, med hjälp av intel vpro. Även esxi/vsphere 5.5 funkar, men med extra drivare för nätverkskoret. I vilket fall så vill du köpa ett extra eftersom vpro läget/intel amt sätter det interna nätverkskortet i 10mbit/s om du mountar en enhet, som exempelvis en cdrom...

Материнка GIGABYTE GA-Q87M-D2H

Митар, fotos.ua
31 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Не дорогая с возможностью разгона. Мне большего не надо. После неудачных прошивок в прошлом теперь беру платы только этого производителя. При не удачной прошивке всегда можно восстановить с резервного биоса в домашних условиях без паяльника и программатора.
  • Pros: Достоинства:, крутой биос; , хорошие возможности
