Summary: I picked out this Gigabyte MB for a NAS box upgrade because of all the on board SATA ports it provided. It installed and booted up fine, but neither Fedora nor Ubuntu Linux are detecting the Atheros Gigabit LAN chip on the MB. LAN is enabled in the BIOS. I certainly did not see anything in the description or reviewer comments about the MB not being supported on Linux. [...
Summary: I have build maybe 30 systems in my time. I had more trouble with this motherboard than all the others combined. There were issues with the RAM. I had to seat and reseat several times before the BIOS would stop beeping. The BIOS beeps at you when there are issues, yet Gigabyte has no information regarding what the various beeps mean. You must guess. Still I could not get this damn thing to boot.
Summary: We ordered this as the basis for a new gaming PC with an i7 CPU. Was OK until we wanted to use anything other than the on board Video card. Random results when PCi slot 1 was not recognised and only slot 2. Would not boot to anything other than the onboard video controller follwoing a restart. Loads of BSOD's. Gave up in the end and returned for credit. To be fair to amazon prompt credit.
Summary: had many issues with this, Never felt that everything worked as it should. Not helped by gigabytes release of half broken bios updates. Using gigabytes provided bios flashing tools has also bricked the most recent update. Try Asus.
Summary: USB-ports haben mehrere Probleme, ich musste immer der PC neu starten wenn aller der USB-Ports plotzlich inaktiv gehen. Nicht empfohlend für neue PC-Bauer da Gigabytes Webseite nicht so benutzerfreundlich ist.
Summary: Ich kann die anderen Rezensionenen leider nicht bestätigen, von daher muß ich wohl eins der berüchtigten "Montagsgeräte" erwischt haben. Nachdem ich das Board verbaut hatte, hat es erstmal guten Tag gesagt, indem es an und wieder aus und wieder angegangen ist. Gut, dacht ich mir, warteste mal ab, bis Windows drauf ist. Windows also installiert, was soweit geklappt hat.
