I like RAID and dislike this board, even though I really love Gigabyte.

  • Summary: Works well if you are not using RAID arrays. Locks up Windows 7 Pro 64-bit constantly if RAID arrays used for OS. Tried 3 different arrangements of arrays, all with same results. As soon as I went back to a dedicated boot drive on single SATA port, performance was as expected and no lockups. Maybe my board has a bad controller, but software RAID is always suspect. **NOTE** I tried 2, 3, and 4 disk arrays using RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 all with same results.

On a budget!

  • Summary: I built a gaming rig on a really tight budget for a family member. Even with the 16gb memory limit, the board has everything you need to build a half decent low cost gaming beast!

Great motherboard, slightly confusing description.

  • Summary: I bought this motherboard with the expectation of having USB3.0 compatibility with my case. Unfortunately this was not so and only has USB3.0 on the I/O. This was most likely my fault as misinterpretation of the product description but just to let everybody know. This motherboard does not support the USB3.0 header.

A brilliant budget motherboard

Bungie, Amazon

  • Summary: For a budget motherboard this has excellent features including USB3 and SATA 6. With Win7 64bit installed, a lowly Intel Core i3 processor and 8gb Ram the board flies. Also the motherboard supplied was the later V2.0 version. Recommended.

Excellent for two screens.

  • Summary: Two PCi express slots far enough apart for two graphics cards and space for cooling. The only built in video is HDMI which works fine although my graphics card outputs are VGA.

very dissapointing.

  • Summary: cant fault amazon, they delivered on time etc so top marks to them. however the board i recieved was faulty. stuck in a constant reboot loop, unable to get into bios or anything. Im a full time techie so tried it all (clear cmos, remove unneeded parts, alternative ram, etc etc) and nothing worked. i suspect its due to a BIOS problem however im using a 2500k intel which should work out of the box.

Not up to scratch, but why?

Mr. C. Broughton ".", Amazon
2 April 2013
  • Summary: I usually write reviews that praise Gigabyte motherboards, because on the whole, they are very good motherboards. I don't know what happened, if it was a bad shipment or batch of boards, but I had two of these boards go wrong in less than a year and a half. The first only had one functioning RAM slot when it arrived, which is obviously no good and the second one's Ethernet port died after about 6 months of usage.

Recieved Revision 2.0 - Overclocks Locked Ivy Bridge Core i5.

Emil, Amazon
2 March 2013
  • Summary: Hi there. Here's my feedback for this motherboard (Z68AP-D3), which I purchased for a mere £50 here from Amazon.co.uk: First, let's look at the cons for the board: CONS: -Only uses the traditional 1oz copper PCB (instead of 2oz for more expensive/newer boards). -No onboard USB3 header - if you have a USB3 case, you will NOT be able to connect the front panel USB ports to the motherboard. My comments for the cons: The 1oz PCB is to be expected in this price range.
