Couldnt be happier, until the board had to be RMA'd.

  • Summary: Side note: Do not update to the bios version from 3/2013 unless you plan to run Windows 8. It will limit your CPU voltage to 1.446 and you cannot flash back to previous versions of the bios. Other then that, I couldnt be happier. Awesome, user friendly bios as well.

Works good

  • Pros: This Mobo works fine for me. i use a water cooler and run 8 cores at 100% for a long time/ over night and have no problem. easy bios. What do i say I just put the computer together and that was it no need to open it up again. I seldom give 5 stars. i am seldom happy with a product.

Solid

16 November 2013
  • Summary: Great motherboard with a 4 year warranty. Benchmarks don't run as well as they should on my video card because of PCI 2.0 but when I'm playing I cannot tell the difference.
  • Pros: Quick set-up with an easy to use overclock interface. Read everything plug and play after assembling. No issues with performance.
  • Cons: No PCI Express 3 No usb 3.0 input for the top of my case

The GD-55

Richard D., Newegg
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I've built a few of these and have had no problems, if you learn what your doing so you recognize if there really is a problem or if you perhaps forgot to set something correctly or in the wrong order you shouldn't either.
  • Pros: Motherboard is a very nice board with high end components, I found them very stable. You need to have experience when building like setting your ram up at bios to proper speed if its over 1333 mhz ram and then the rule of thumb is to boot up with one stick of your matched ram first and then add a...
  • Cons: Didn't see any, and like I said overclocking can usually safley and correctly only really harvest a bout .2 or .3 over most cpu's if you notice when they say turbo mode that means the cpu will run that cause they tested it but probably will be unstable past that, hence not worth even turboing or ...

I don't understand the bad reviews?

Nicholas B., Newegg
8 May 2013
  • Summary: DOA people, better luck next time.
  • Pros: Installing and connecting the board was simple. Removing the original heat-sink mounts was a cinch. First and every boot-up has worked perfectly. Loading time is <5 seconds for the Windows 7 splash to appear. Drivers installed easily, click-BIOS was much less of a headache to navigate than others...
  • Cons: None so far. I miss having 2 ethernet ports, but that's a purchase choice, not a product flaw.
