  • Cons: BIOS is difficult to use, SAS raid is tricky unless you know that the default Raid is SATA SAS isn't backwards compatible with SATA. However, STAT is BP with SAS.

Problem - Boot Loop

Chandraekhar P., Newegg
22 October 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte should have updated the BIOS before shipping the product.
  • Pros: None so-far
  • Cons: Started with boot loop and no beep - Tried swapping CPU and power supply, didn't help. Contacted Gigabyte, they said the problem is with Motherboard BIOS, it was shipped with old BIOS version.

Have been a Gigabyte Motherboard user since the pentium class processors. They were Ultra Durable.

Mark Chan, Amazon
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Gigabyte continues to put out impressive motherboards and other computer products. Just recently, however, I ran into problems with 3 of my Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge Gigabyte motherboards. I believe the bioses had to be reprogrammed because of a hacker attacking my and my brother's work computers.

Died after a few days

Dirk G., Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: This was probably somewhere around my 10th build, and this is the first time I've had a bad mobo. EVGA and ASUS have never let me down, yet the first Gigabyte board I get dies after a few days. Thankfully was able to return to Amazon for a full refund.

Good board

cj, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: The board is good. seems pretty sturdy but... on the first copy I received the pci clip pulled off of the board when switching video card from slot one to slot two. Which brings up another point, they really should number the slots on a diagram in the instructions at least in mine it wasn't clear...
