Hope for Dumbo!

Justin B., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: it needs another system fan plug. I have a side fan blowing inwards that I intend to find an adapter for. On a positive note, gigabyte responded to my other post (can't edit it for some reason) and so there's some hope that they may be able to do something.
  • Pros: very intuitive and user friendly window-ish bios setup. I like the USB 3.0 ports all over the back., integrated HD 3000 graphics seems to do the job on most non-FPS gaming applications. Had it together and running again in under 2 hrs. Plenty of expandability and room to SLI later.
  • Cons: none.

Good board, but...

Jon M., Newegg
27 October 2013
  • Summary: I really like this board. However, GIGABYTE only makes their BIOS updates available in Windows executable format, e.g. ".exe" extension. This oversight prevents me and every other GIGABYTE motherboard user from updating the BIOS when running any operating system other than Windows.
  • Pros: Integrated HDMI and DVI ports for dual screens Dual BIOS SATA and other motherboard connectors in good locations
  • Cons: BIOS requires Windows to update

It works.

  • Summary: I had a problem and I thought it was the board when the computer wouldn't even post. But the graphics card was causing the problem. I haven't tried tweaking anything yet.

VIA usb ports problems

srdowns, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: Now that I have had it for awhile, I thought that it was time that I gave some feedback. The Gigabyte bios on this board is fantastic - could not be better. I also loved the layout of the motherboard. There is much to like about it, but there are downsides to it as well. My via usb ports are fried.

Response to Gigabyte

Jeffrey R., Newegg
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I see that Gigabyte support posted a response to my earlier review suggesting that I try clearing the CMOS. I just wanted to make clear that I *did* try that. About 40 times. I even pulled the battery and left it out for 24 hours. It wasn't a corrupt CMOS issue; the board just died.
  • Pros: Great features
  • Cons: Failed in a week - but since this is my second review on the same board I rated it a 3 because I don't think it's fair to rate the same item twice, so I just gave it an average score.

User Review

  • Summary: I have been working on this problem for weeks researching the problem from every angle and site but no answers any where. Will try my speakers this weekend. Very dissapointed over this problem since don't know if its a BIOS issue, software or mobo.
  • Pros: Nice looking board, easy install booted first time no problems after loading W7 32bit OS and installing drivers worked well.
  • Cons: This build was for a friend who was using USB speakers while I tested it with standard speakers all worked well but when he tested the usb speakers no sound would come out. Tried his monitor speaker system with HDMI and straight cord from green output to monitor, switched to DVI cable and differe...

Try, try again.

  • Summary: So, my first mobo I bought was a dud. I am shipping it back tomorrow. However, I am buying another one to give it a try. Sometimes you just get unlucky and get a dud. Hopefully in a few days I'll be back to revise this review with some positive feedback!

bios blue screen of death

Lisa R., Newegg
14 December 2012
  • Summary: I have always liked gigabyte boards and have even had great luck buying refurbished at greatly reduced prices. This new 3d bios however seems glitchy and I am not sure what to expect. If you can be of any assistance to help me with this matter, feel free to contact me at gmail.
  • Pros: Worked great with an i7, geforce 650ti and 16 gigs of gskill and 2 5oogb raptors in raid o until I began to overclock- thats when the problmes started. This board was great and the sleep mode is amazing. Your computer will shut down completely and with a single click of your mouse it is back at t...
  • Cons: So for two days I left the system on easyclock. however when I went to try to get into the bios or access any part of the bios- it would freeze up and the screen would be all glitchy. It was essentially the bios BSOD with one line appearing at the top "Gigabyte UEFI DualBios". It gets no further....
