5 out of 5 eggsGreat Overclocking Mobo

Pros: Every feature you could want. Stable, cool, efficient, and Dual BIOS option. Overclocked my E6850 to 3.8 Ghz on an aftermarker Air cooler. Rock solid stable. I didn't really have any problems fitting a Superclocked 8800GTX board in it, nor the HUGE Thermaltake V1 cooler.

Cons: P35 Chip won't do Nvidia SLI. BIOS didn't have an option to boot from USB drive (what's up with that?) Expensive.

Other Thoughts: I probably spent more money than necessary. I'm not using crossfire and half the other features. This one had the extra cooling features and I wanted the best so I could overclock as high as possible. I wasn't disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice cooling, plenty of connectors and ports for add-ons.

Booted right up, recognized everything and installed Vista without a problem.

Nice overclocking options.

Cons: Can't fit SLI 8800's without blocking the SATA ports. Not an issue for most people though.

Driver installation software could be better, but you can't expect much from a mobo driver disc.

Other Thoughts: My 512MB 8800GTS fits well, but the way the RAM slots are positioned, you have to install the RAM before the GPU, as you won't have room to open the ram clips with the GPU in place.

1 out of 5 eggsRAM Killer

Pros: Vast feature set; functional layout.

Cons: It killed four separate sticks of RAM from two different manufacturers running at default voltage and timing settings. I have never had more trouble with any component in any computer that I have ever built. The features look impressive on paper and it would seem to be relatively future-proof, but I definitely won't continue using this or any related model from Gigabyte to confirm such ideas.

Other Thoughts: If you experience problems with what you believe to be defective RAM using this board, please consider going with a different brand. I would hate to see anyone go through the six months of troubleshooting and RMA hassles that I had to endure.

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent motherboard

Pros: The GIGABYTE GA-P35-DQ6 installed rather easily and immediately recognized all hardware without failure. While some might have complained about the "crazy cool" system with the additional plate on the bottom, I found it unobtrusive and the Scythe SCNJ-1100P fit without removal of any other part. After installation and validation that the peripherals were recognized, I flashed the BIOS to revision F6 (the more current as of this writing) and continued with a burn-in test. I have XP and Vista Ultimate in dual boot and not one issue so far. Quite a worthwhile motherboard.

Cons: One caveat is that I purchased an EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX which is one-foot long (what happened to miniaturization) and the length rests adjacent the memory. Were one to remove the memory, the video card must be removed first. This might not be an issue with smaller video cards.

Other Thoughts: If you intend to build your own custom system, thrift is not your ally. Purchase quality which often costs more.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING

Pros: Board came in original packaging wrapped again in a very large box surrounded in packing peanuts. The Manual was Complete and easy to follow. Compared to some other boards of the same price had many extras the 4 Serial ATA cables are very generous compared to the EVGA boards. Runs like the cops are chasing it amazing board!

Cons: Stock CPU fan was difficult to get in place, required some force but eventually went in place.

Other Thoughts: This Board is Definatly worth the extra cash, the possibilities for upgrades are nearly endless. You'll Notice I only rate myself as a 4 Somewhat High.... because I feel as though my first build doesnt make me an expert, but i feel as though accomplishing the task has to count for something. take it for what it's worth.

4 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied

Pros: Nice layout; great SATA and raid options; good cooling features

Cons: Removing the stock cpu-fan frame was very difficult. The SilentPipe cooling structure is in the way and make the backplane removal extremely awkward and difficult.

Other Thoughts: The cpu-fan frame problem aside this board has performed flawlessly since installation more than a month ago. Thumbs-up!

5 out of 5 eggsone word...*NICE*

Pros: Very nice board. Very easy to setup and get a system running. Fit perfectly into my P180 case. Had all the bells and whistles I was looking for in a mb (RAID/AHCI, ample USB, 1394, pci express, minimal moving parts (ie heat pipes for north/south bridge).

Cons: Besides being on the more expensive side and coming only with 4 SATA cables for direct connection w/ internal hd not much to complain about.

Other Thoughts: The documentation recommends you go to their website and update the BIOS and the board comes with DUAL bios in case something goes wrong during the update. Be warned if you plan on installing XP and have the disk in RAID/AHCI mode you will need a floppy drive. I don't have one for mine, (Who uses floppy now days!), so I needed to gut another computer to install XP.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat MB but it has it little issues

Pros: Great board! Has just about everything you need and then some. Computer has been running cool and stable for a few weeks now with stock Intel heat sink.

Cons: Had issues mounting stock Intel fan to the CPU. Had to bend the legs out a little to make it snap in place. I think the CPU socket was about 2mm too high. BIOS defaulted to PCI and NOT PCIe as first display. I had to turn my monitor off and back on after I booted the PC to get video. The BIOS also defaulted to NO USB keyboard support so I had to go find a PS2 keyboard to get into the BIOS. Why the BIOS defaulted to the above settings on this high end board I have no clue. Honestly who is going to put in a PCI card in as a first display? Also how hard is it to have USB keyboard support by default?

Other Thoughts: I gave this board a 4 out of 5 because of the heat sink and default BIOS issues. Other than that this is a great board. I have four 250gb WD hard drives set up with one as my OS and three setup in a raid 5. The raid drives still have almost %100 of their read write speeds. the raid failed over nicely and rebuilt its self like it should. I love Gigabyte!

5 out of 5 eggsCooool

Pros: Posted on first try. Egg shipped rev 1.0. Sturdy/solid construction. Keeps my e6600 idle at 29 with my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro HSF, not bad. (This HSF is a TIGHT fit w/the Crazycool copper madness, the plastic from the fan touches the copper fins, but doesn't bend them). Don't worry. My 8800gtx fits well, not too close to the copper fins. Solid state flux-capacitors.

Cons: No RAID disks, make them before you dismantle your current rig, or make them off another computer (also, use the latest drivers online from the Giga website, dont mess with the CD). CPU Fan power placement placed poorly in my opinion. Printer port is a waste of space.

Other Thoughts: UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, CTRL-F1 like everyone says for mem tweaking "hidden BIOS features".
