Reliable performance after years of service!

Kenton B., Newegg
8 December 2015
  • Summary: Full Disclosure: I am writing this honest review as part of a drawing being held by Gigabyte that requires reviews of owned Gigabyte products to be written for a chance to win a prize. Despite this, my opinions here stand uninfluenced by this incentive.
  • Pros: For more than 4 years now, I have used this exact motherboard (REV: 1.0) as the core of my primary gaming rig. It has proven to be stable, fast and issue free. I am not one to overclock, so I can't speak to its related capabilities/limitations here. However, running my Intel i7-2600K at 'stock' s...
  • Cons: Moving to this board from my old ASRock 775Dual-VSTA did cause a few issues for me: 1. This board lacks a GamePort header, so I could no longer use my old Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback Pro with my computer. 2. This board lacks any PATA ports, thus requiring me to purchase a powered PATA to ...

Decent with some issues

Nathaniel M., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • Summary: All-in-all I'd say I've been happy with this board. I'm just wishing the LAN hadn't crapped out after a couple years of use (mostly on wifi anyway)
  • Pros: Lots of BIOS options, RAID, plays well with peripherals, etc. I had few issues with this mobo until yesterday. The few and the "big" one are detailed in cons.
  • Cons: RAID and EFI don't play well with a PCI RAID card. It's basically impossible to use RAID to boot off of. Maybe that's for the best. It was a pain to get it working with a rather standard rocketraid card, though. The BIOS is "hybrid" but not really. Windows won't install in EFI mode. The major iss...

Compatibility and Reboot Issues.

Daniel H., Newegg
24 September 2014
  • Pros: Works Great With My Amd 6850.
  • Cons: Bios reboots over and over. Will not support my new nvidea 760 so either I have to get a new mother board. Or send the card back....

loop boot and virtualization problems

Simona P., Newegg
10 June 2014
  • Pros: Runs nice, nice EFI BIOS config options, the specs fit all my requirements - would have been 4 eggs if no loop boot issues
  • Cons: The loop boot problem for GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 is real. I had my system working fine for more then 5 months untill one day when it started continuously booting every 2-4 seconds, without beep (no POST). In my case resetting CMOS via jumpers (per manual) didn't work. I removed the CMOS battery for more ...

It tends to not boot up after a year

I bought this stuff and this is what I think., Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: The motherboard worked good for a year. Then after that it wouldnt boot up have to flush the bios every time. In short this mother board is not very reliable after a year... on the good side I guess it gives you some practice skills in flushing the bios.

Does not support 4 RAM cards

Joan K., Newegg
19 February 2014
  • Pros: Works great with 2 RAM cards
  • Cons: Won't work with 4 identical RAM cards. Used it for a couple years with G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 2X4GB, then upgraded to Ripjaws DDR3 1600 4X8GB and it brought the machine to a snail pace, removed 2 of the 8GB cards and it works fine - now I see lots of other posts with unhappy people. They claim...
