Doesn't work well with Radeon 7850

Scott M., Newegg
17 September 2013
  • Pros: Motherboard work fine with my AMD 5850 XFX graphics card. However that card failed in less than a year, so XFX did a great job replacing it with a new 7850 but neither the x16 or x8 slot will see the graphics card. It will only work in the x4 slot which is going to hurt performance! It looks like...
  • Cons: Doesn't recognize my Radeon 7850 in either x16 or x8 pci-express slots - only the x4 slot which is going to hamstring this graphics card.

Not a winner

wynne c., Newegg
9 June 2013
  • Summary: I will not be getting a replacement of the same model. Try something else because as far as I can tell this model has design flaws.
  • Pros: All the features I wanted in a microATX format.
  • Cons: I spent several days dealing with windows 7 not being able to install via DVD. I tried changing every part, including using three different CD/DVD drives both sata and USB, and two different original windows disks. It would start loading windows and then ask for the DVD driver every time and no c...

Not as good as I hoped

aaron a., Newegg
30 May 2013
  • Pros: I have always liked gigabyte boards and this is a nice looking board but see below
  • Cons: According to Mfg. web page this board supports windows xp but after several attempts to install board software it never took. Another problem was with the hard drive, the only time windows would read ssd was to change bios from sata to ide which would really slow the ssd.

BIOS got messed up/PCI slot dead

Patrick S., Newegg
30 December 2012
  • Summary: Buy something better for your machine! Don't let its seemingly nice features fool you.
  • Pros: Worked well until Windows 8 was installed.
  • Cons: -BIOS mysteriously got messed up after a month of use. Very hard to explain what went wrong with the bios other than the fact it is unusable. (Mobo still works though) -It appears that the PCI 3.0 slot is dead on the card since I know it's not my graphic card's fault.

CPU killer

chris l., Newegg
25 November 2012
  • Summary: Went with a MSI-Z77A-GD65 board and I am loving that decision. It's auto overclock alone got my I5 up to 4.10GHz and I am running it stable at 4.50GHz.
  • Pros: Friend gave me $50 for it. After we found the cause of the problem the board seemed to work with another cpu.
  • Cons: Dropped the cpu in and it booted for a few seconds. After a good light and a magnifying glass to the socket problem solved. We found very small pieces of what looked like brass or some other metal under the pins of the socket. Fried the cpu in the process (tried it on 3 different boards.) Custome...

Bad BIOS

Russell P., Newegg
4 October 2012
  • Pros: none so far
  • Cons: So this is an interesting one. got everything put together, had a good POST, and tried to open the BIOS by hitting the "delete" key, and nothing happened. the board was registering the key press, was able to tell that thanks to the speaker from my case. at this point it would still boot to the dr...

Fail

Bobby L., Newegg
1 October 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy Gigabyte until they fix their drivers and MOBOs
  • Pros: Looks
  • Cons: Customer service and pretty sure my PCIe x16 slot is dead. Sent in to request for customer service through Gigabytes website on Ticket 1 - Drivers are causing my computer to freezing when loading windows. The answer given was to make sure there was no disk in the drive. Thanks genius. Found which...

Horrible

Bobby L., Newegg
1 October 2012
  • Summary: Calling customer service tomorrow morning. If no help then going to RMA and get a different brand.
  • Pros: Price and size
  • Cons: I'm pretty sure my PCIe x16 slot is a dud. Tried two graphics cards for the PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. Both produced the same problem which was a black screen with no video signal from the cards and the motherboard when the cards are plugged in. Thought it was my video card so returned and got another on...

Unstable - Not Recommended

Lisa B., Newegg
24 August 2012
  • Summary: I'd have given it zero eggs if I could. Buy another brand or board if you are looking for a stable Z77 board.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I've been a PC builder for nearly 20 yenever had I had a board ars and this bad. The first was returned faulty at my own expense, now the second is faulty in the same way suggesting a more fundamental problem with this board. I've been a Gigabyte user for many years but I'm left questioning the w...
