Displeased

Kevin S., Newegg
2 August 2012
  • Summary: They could've fixed the problem but they opted to be cheap and not bother to fix a genuine problem.
  • Pros: Good features, looks nice
  • Cons: Doesn't work correctly ever since it was new. I can overlook this and inconvenience myself as well as pay for shipping to RMA an item, but they sent the same board back to me and it still doesn't work. That's about the point where I stop buying your entire brand.

The worst motherboard I have ever owned

Robert W., Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Avoid this thing like the plague. It's overpriced garbage. You can do better. Much better.
  • Pros: It would have to work to receive pros.
  • Cons: Continuous, ending, and frustrating boot loop issues, freeze errors from supposedly incorrect voltage settings, USB always on cannot be disabled, RAID setup does not work, most USB keyboards are 50/50 for response at boot or any time pre-OS load, board only quasi-supports PCI-E 3.0, most of the f...

Bad Motherboard

Stephen C., Newegg
7 July 2012
  • Summary: 18% unsatisfactory comments should be very disconcerting for the consumer and the manufacturer!!!
  • Pros: Looks good...
  • Cons: Doesn't work.... I've tried everything! Re-seating everything, running the minimum, replacing the power supply (this is the common scapegoat), and the system continue to not post and reboots at the first sign of the bios. This is very frustrating!!! I pray that they come to their senses and eithe...

Epic Fail by GIGABYTE

Ronald B., Newegg
18 June 2012
  • Summary: Before people start thinking "oh it was probably the power supply or the cpu or" whatever, like i said i was making 2 systems. meaning i tried two different CORSAIR power supplies and two different Intel i7-ivy bridge. and no matter what the systems are stuck in an endless boot-reboot, cycle.
  • Pros: Many people gave this board great reviews. i had high hopes that this would give me very good results.
  • Cons: Bought 2 of these boards for custom builds for my work. BOTH boards are experiencing the infamous boot loop issue, and i simply don't have the time to try all the different solutions people have to offer. the system would boot for more then 5 seconds.

Disappointed

Michael J., Newegg
26 May 2012
  • Summary: Won't buy Gigabyte again.
  • Pros: Nice looking board. Excellent features. Things worked fine for the first couple of months, and then BAM! No workie no more. Just fans coming on, then off, then on, then off. Nothing on the screen ( board never posted again).
  • Cons: I'm another victim of the Boot Loop issue. I have tried to fix it after reading the forums, no luck. RMA'd the board and Gigabyte sends it back saying "we completed testing your board". No POST screen, nothing, just cycling fans. Called them again and they claim the board was fine, booted windows...

unfortunate issues with these boards is real

Joshua S., Newegg
28 March 2012
  • Summary: I spent hours troubleshooting on my own, once Gigabyte got involved, I had to begin jumping through hoops to get anything accomplished - most of which were steps I had already taken (basic troubleshooting such as; minimal hardware configuration, etc. etc.).
  • Pros: nice looking board, works great as long as you don't need to turn it off... ever
  • Cons: I'm not going to go into a lot of detail here other than to say that this is (was) my 5th Gigabyte board over the last few years. I was in denial about the issues that others were saying they were having and was convinced it was due to user error. The board would work great until you needed to sh...

Board won't even Post

Scott K., Newegg
9 February 2012
  • Summary: I would avoid this board as it seems other users have had DOA issues, boot loops, etc.
  • Pros: None. DOA on arrival
  • Cons: Just spent the last several hours troubleshooting this trying to figure out why it wont even post to bios. I've cleared CMOS, disconnected and reconnected everything. No audible beep comes from the mobo speaker i attached
