1 out of 5 eggsMOBO dies out just like they said

Pros: I loved it a first. I loved all the bells and whistles.

Cons: There are two: 1. There is no place to plug a female USB cable. This cable usually comes with cases. 2. THIS IS A BIG ONE. After having this computer for 3 years with no issues--at all. For the first time, I put the computer in sleep mode and it never woke up! I tried everything just like the guys in the other posts--nothing worked. The closest I got to any signs of power was a flash of yellow/green near the MOBO power socket, that's it.

Other Thoughts: Buyer Beware!

1 out of 5 eggs2 strikes and I'm out

Pros: I honestly cannot think of any, primarily because the board NEVER worked for me.

Cons: Bought in 2010. Couldn't install until beyond 30 days after receipt so no return possible; IDE connectors and NIC port did not work. Returned to Gigabyte for refurbish. In the meantime bought another mobo since I had no idea how long the refurbish would take. New motherboard (different manufacturer) worked fine from 2010 through mid-2014. I thought instead of buying a whole new setup I would get this mobo out of the box it was returned in and use it instead. Well, apparently refurbishing took it from no IDE or NIC to no functionality at all - I got no power to the PC at all this time. Every single component had worked fine both with this mobo when I tried it the first time (except the new SATA optical drives to replace the older IDE ones) AND they had all been working fine with the motherboard I'd been using since 2010 and was trying to replace with this refurbished Gigabyte one. Nope - this board was refurbished into a completely non-functional board that cost me $209.99 and gave me absolutely nothing except shipping costs.
I'm not going to mention the other manufacturer I replaced this board with - this Gigabyte board was the ONLY time I got a motherboard not made by that other company, and it was a mistake for me that I won't repeat in the future. But I don't want this review to be an ad for them - I want it to be clear that I was and still am very dissatisfied with both the product and the service I received from Gigabyte.

1 out of 5 eggsReboot loop

Pros: When it works, this is a pretty decent board. One wish I do have is that it had onboard video to fall back on for when things go wrong. That leads me to the cons section...

Cons: This board started fine, but I quickly started getting issues with it. There were times where the computer, after being off for more than a few minutes, would not start properly when powered on. No video, no POST, no anything. Just the sound of the fans spinning down, and entering another boot attempt.
I've checked the graphics card, RAM, PSU, removed all accessories, and nothing. Forums show that this is an issue, but with no defined solution. Such a shame since it had potential.

Other Thoughts: If you can find it for cheap, get it. But factor in how long you think that board is going to last.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It had lots of usb ports.

Cons: I give this board a big fat goose egg (0), since Newegg doesn't have zero as an option.
The board finally burned after a few years of use. Sent my RMA number in and they sent me a replacement 1366 socket board, that one also caught fire. Gigabyte's warramty service is horrible and their products are way under par. It has been taking them over 2 months to get anything done. DO NOT buy from Gigabyte EVER!

1 out of 5 eggsNice look board but unstable

Pros: I was using the board with a 6 core i7 and had the board load with 24 GB of OCZ ripjaws RAM. It was easy to configure, but overtime the 6th DIMM slot (slot #5 in the CMOS) went south causing instability problems until I had to replace and evaluate the RAM in different slots.

Cons: Motherboard failed within the warranty period. Now, I have been waiting in the phone queue for 30 minutes waiting for someone at Gigabyte to answer the phone and give me an RMA number. The problem is that I cannot be without my computer for 6 weeks which is my estimate of what the turn around time will be to get this board replaced. Oh, and try and find a board now with a 1366 socket, so I am worried that I am up a creek with out a paddle.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Riddance

Pros: Was good while it lasted, although from the very first setup using up all the components was impossible. It provided me many hours of CompTIA+ equivalent training and inflated my ego for the brief periods I was able to get it to run stable. It is solid proof that sometimes you DO NOT GET what you pay for.

Cons: There are too many to list, namely thermal issues, faulty USB3.0 and a SATAIII controller that is out-performed by Intel's SATAII. Once I moved states and a 15 degree difference in ambient temperature later the motherboard became impossible to use without the case side door open. It died once and I was able to replace it but at this point it will not post without constantly resetting itself.

Other Thoughts: Early adopters of SATAIII and USB3.0 like me who bought into the 58X Intel chipset got shafted. I will never buy bleeding edge technology like this again until it becomes proven in the market. Presently, Intel X79 LGA 2011 is like the X58 LGA 1366 all over again. No matter how tempting, Intel will NEVER fool me again.

1 out of 5 eggsVery unstable-stay away from this board

Pros: It runs stable part of the time, enough that I put up with its intermittent crashes for a year and a half because I thought it must have been a driver issue.

Cons: The board got more and more unstable over time. Unfortunately when I bought this there weren't as many negative reviews as have occurred in the year since. On the advice of my father, who has an identical cpu (i7-950) but an asus motherboard in a rock solid system, I switched to an Asus motherboard recently and have had zero crashes, whereas with the gigabyte board I would have sometimes no crashes for weeks and then suddenly it would start crashing every other time I ran it.

It's a shame this board is so badly designed and Gigabyte never made any real steps to fix it or address complaints (see the huge number of customer service experiences detailed on newegg!). I have a gigabyte board for an Athlon X2 in my house as well and that runs perfectly. In the future I plan on staying on the safe side by buying Asus.

1 out of 5 eggsWORST Service Ever!!!

Pros: 4 RAM Dimm

Cons: Sent Board Back on an RAM June 18 2012 today is July 7 2012.
Every Time I have Called they say the technician is looking at it. And push the date up. I asked for an Advanced RMA but they say they have the board and will service it. I am not a Gaming TWIT. This is my work. I have been out of work for the past 3 weeks. I have no confidence in this company. Their service is nonexistent. Pathetic show. And there is no one to call or help.
Will never buy a Gigabyte product again. Buyer beware.

1 out of 5 eggsFlawed design

Pros: Board worked great... for about 1.5yrs

Cons: Starting showing the same symptoms as the other posters on here. All of the sudden my PC started BSOD, rebooting, loosing the HDD and DVD-ROM drives, until you reboot, throwing memory errors, etc.

Other Thoughts: From reading the other posts it's looks like it would be useless to contact them for any type of support. My last 3-4 MBs have been Gigabyte but I think I'll check out another brand now.

I do remember their support website being horrible to get drivers from.

1 out of 5 eggsFlaky board, TERRIBLE customer service

Pros: Nice design
Feels quite durable

Cons: RMA process from Gigabyte is one of the worst I have ever seen. They are very slow. My board started randomly freezing and BSOD'ing. First time around, they just flashed the BIOS and returned the board to me. I changed chip, memory, graphics -- the board still crashed. I returned it a second time. Gigabyte service claimed that they replaced my board. What they did was replace a sticker on the very same board I had sent in (I had made a small mark on one of the components with a pen). When asked why they returned the same board to me, the technical support man became belligerent. I decided to throw away the board at a total loss to me and buy an EVGA. This is sad because I used to be a big Gigabyte fan but their customer support has turned me into someone else's customer.

Other Thoughts: Very sad level of customer service. If this continues, Gigabyte will lose customers.
