it could have been better

Megan flynn, Amazon

  • Summary: it lacks vcore a basic tuning stat that basic motherboards get for half the price and for a motherboard thats supposedly unlocked it should have been standard. For this board vcore is automatically detected and that can be dangerous for the matter of temps. I will say in every other way the board is excellent but you need to be able to control vcore it will allow for a stable overclock.

No vcore option

JohnDoe, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Was able to OC my 3570k to 4.2GHz, but I hit a wall when going anything over. At 4.3, it would boot, but freeze shortly after with temps hovering at 40-45C during load. 4.4 wouldn't even post. Anyone familiar with OCing would recognize this is classic "up the voltage" territory. However, only option for voltage is Vtt and PLL.

  • Summary: i like the features of the motherboard, but the bios does not always remember the drive that i assigned as the bootup drive. i called support, but the support person provided not help to correct this issue.

Great motherboard IF you dont OC

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: This is an awful gimmick. I have been a big fan of Gigabyte for many many years. There is no reason this board couldn't have vcore adjustment, they took it out to simply to force you to buy a higher end board that doesn't really have any beneficial features to most OC'ers.
  • Pros: It is a great Hackintosh Motherboard. Its actually a really nice featureset for it's price even for a PC board. HOWEVER that is ONLY if you don't overclock.
  • Cons: You can't adjust Vcore voltage. Stupid. Overclocking on this board is a waste of time.

Decent hardware, but bad software and UEFI problems

Mark J., Newegg
2 September 2012
  • Summary: I would not recommend buying a Gigabyte motherboard until they can solve their software and UEFI problems. If you do buy a Gigabyte board, the first thing you should do is flash to the most recent UEFI.
  • Pros: The motherboard itself is decent, and it's reasonably priced.
  • Cons: The whole system would lock up at random intervals with the F2 UEFI that shipped with my board. Flashing to the F4 version did not help - I was about to contact tech support again when I saw that the F5 version was available for download. Flashing to F5 solved the problem.

You get what you expect for $110

Ignacio L, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I give this board 3/5 stars, because of poor overclocking compatibility with my i5-2500K Sandy Bridge CPU. The principle reason why you would want to purchase a motherboard with an Intel Z77 express chipset is because Intel promises CPU overclocking performance; however, this entry-level Gigabyte motherboard does not provide full overclocking capability. For example, you may increase the multiplier on your CPU, but you may not manually adjust the core voltage.

Average motherboard

Bigred, Amazon

  • Summary: A good motherboard but not a straight forward bios as my previous asus and can lead you down the wrong paths very easily. Price is still high for what you are getting so take my advise and look at something else for the same price or less

issues with legacy PCI tv tuner cards, and PCI-e x1 slot

Simon, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Saw this for a decent price even though I've no need for it's overclocking capabilities. (Did see a H77 version of the board about) This was purchased together with the intel i3-3225. This is a htpc build and initially i had installed 2 old hauppauge Nova-t PCI (90002) PCI cards. having just one of the cards installed lead to the system not waking up properly, and go into a power on/off loop or cycle, which could only be interrupted by removing the power cable.

  • Summary: Непонятна ситуация с биосами. Для данной платы последний биос датируется 1012 годом, в то время для чуть более старшей модели D3H постоянно выходят новые версии. Что это? Удачная версия биоса уже не требующая доработок (во что мало вериться) или просто забили? :) В принципе, неплохая материнка по соотношению цена/качество если вы у вас процессор с залоченным множителем, по-крайней мере мой отлично работает на 4200 даже без поднятия vcore.
  • Pros: Цена. Неплохой функционал, вполне достаточный для домашнего использования. Компактные размеры (для тех, кому актуально)
  • Cons: Самый главный недостаток - отсутствие возможности поднять Vcore. Для более-менее вменяемого разгона не подходит. Инженеры из Гигабайта укоротили плату по ширине, а вот добавить крепежные отверстия забыли. В итоге край платы висит и немного прогибается при подключения питания или шлейфов, что немного пугает :)

  • Summary: Короче мне подсунули старинную rev 1.0, которая официально поддерживает Ivy Bridge с прошивки F8, а по дефолту стоит F3. Новая прошивка убавит зависания и виснет всего раз в неделю. Но если ее поставить - в СЦ вас пошлют. Была какая-то бракованная партия и даже официальные форумы пестрят подобными жалобами на зависоны. Так что проверяйте ревизию (она в левом нижнем углу на материнке написана, на коробке вроде даже не найти), уже должны завести 1.1.
  • Pros: Приятный цвет, разноцветные слоты, достойный функционал и все нужные слоты, USB 3.0, UEFI и все такое.
  • Cons: - Фиговая аудиокарта (у D3H лучше) - Драйвер встроенной сетевой карты вываливается в синий экран на 64-битной винде раз-два в день, обновлял - не помогает. Но это все мелочи, вот главные косяки: Если вам попадется rev 1.0 и у вас проц Ivy Bridge, то вешайтесь, есть большой риск подхватить спонтанные зависания, абсолютно без причины комп виснет с пронзительным писком. Это может быть 1 раз в 3 дня , а может 10 раз за 1 день, рандом. Вы можете погуглить и удостовериться ...
