Good MOBO, just check the aluminium plate when setting it

Eva Lin, Amazon

  • Summary: I only had to re-assemble the PC and check the plate for the motherboard panel as it was sightly blocking the thunderbolt port, this is a common issue and im glad i found the solution on forums using Google as i thought the first time that the thunderbolt port was not the same size as the apple...

GREAT GREAT GREAT

  • Summary: The folks at Amazon rejected my first review which read "perfect transaction" but it seems they want fairly wordy feedback, which I might have provided if this were a work worthy of critical review and there was anything to say other than "it works and I'm happy.

Garbage board

Anonymous, Newegg
8 April 2014
  • Summary: It's been 23 days, latest board now intermittently shuts down and came dirty upon arrival. Called Gigabyte, they explained to email them with pc build info and would take it from there. Multiple bad reviews, horrible customer service, bad replacement products. Would rate as "0" if possible.
  • Pros: Fast, lots of options, thunderbolt ports.
  • Cons: Had this board for 1 year and 2 months, then would simply not turn on. Contacted Gigabyte, got an RMA and sent. Whole processes took just over 4 weeks. Called 1 time per week to check up on board status, was told it was able to POST and all was looking fine but would take 5 days of stress testing...

appears to be a pro card, is not

Matthias K., Newegg
13 December 2013
  • Pros: lots of connectors, but physical architecture prevents usage of all of them.
  • Cons: despite being advertised, it is impossible to mount a 3rd graphics card that takes 2 slot because the board connectors are immediately below the 3rd PCi Express slot. On removing the 2nd gfx card from its slot, the cheap plastic on the rear of the slot broke, including a very flimsy metal connect...

Works Great

Michael S., Newegg
9 August 2013
  • Pros: BIOS Features are great. Having 2 sets of SATA ports on different controalers is amazing. You can simply have one set to ACHI for your SSD Boot and then another Controaler for RAID set up.
  • Cons: None yet.
