5 out of 5 eggsFantastic mobo!

Pros: Thank you Gigabyte for making that mobo! I'm using it about 7 years and its going strong. I have q9550 @3.4 for last 4 years and I'm really happy. I added SSD, 560 GTX, other HDD 2TB etc. and I can't complain. Some time in future, I will change it and I will buy again Gigabyte and Intel they go well together.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: GREAT mobo!

4 out of 5 eggs'Twas an excellent board ...

Pros: Kudos to Gigabyte, and a fond farewell to this most revered mainboard, an excellent board which I was unable to kill. I bought it to learn how to tweak the hardware, but the CPU (Intel Core2Duo 6750) and RAM (OCZ Silver/Platinum series, overpriced, DOA, and rebate-failed) were utterly unresponsive, so I ended up leaving the stock settings alone and weeping the tears of the aftermath of a failed enterprise.

Lesson Learned: NO OCZ. There will be another review for THEM, oh yes.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Chips!

Cons: Poor documentation for Linux users (in late 2007). All support was Windows-only, though the website was certainly ample. Little online support for Linux OCers in 2007-8 when I got it, but that's hardly Gigabyte's fault.

Much has changed. The Sandy/Ivy processors are OC-friendly, so I hear.

Other Thoughts: What took me so long? Last time, I avoided leaving reviews, and have ignored this since. Now, I'm looking for parts for a new system. I *HATE* it, but it's time for an upgrade -- it's been 4.5 years, and the world is migrating to SATAIII, USB 3.0, and SSD system disks. This will soon be Tux4Mom -- maybe she'll have better luck overclocking it!

5 out of 5 eggsNice & Easy

Pros: Very easy build. Board's labeles are easy to read. Good bang for the buck.

Cons: No floppy provided for XP install.

Other Thoughts: I plan to purchase more of these boards.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat overclocker!

Pros: This is the Intel m-atx cube tinkerer's dream motherboard. Tons of voltage and clock settings in the bios as well as an automatic voltage regulator setting that makes overclocking easy. Paired up with an E2160 Allendale and I've overclocked 3.2 Ghz on stock cooling. Love the solid capacitors and ferrite core chokes.

Cons: Nothing big. The system fan header is between the cpu and the atx connectors making it hard to get to in my m-atx cube case. No free shipping or mail in rebates I guess is the only other gripe?

Other Thoughts: Loving it!

5 out of 5 eggsStable Server 2003 x64 board

Pros: All the drivers I needed were available either through Giga-byte.com or Intel.com or Asus.com. Got it up quickly.

Cons: Had to do some research to find an x64 dirver for the 8111B NIC. None available on the Giga-byte.com site.

Other Thoughts: Found a driver through Google for the Realtek 8111B NIC. The Asus P5ND2 driver brought the NIC right up.

I also pulled down the current Intel Matrix Storage Manager from the Intel site instead of using the Gigabyte driver. Running two Raid 1's on the Gigabyte with no issues.

This is my first time back to Gigabyte since the Server 2000 days when the I had major compatibility issues. Looks like in this case, they have the right stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsNice MicroATX board with eSATA and RAID

Pros: 6 SATA ports with the ICH9R chip, which is a known top performer. Lots of BIOS options for OC'ing, SATA/RAID. Easy OC'ing with no overheating even with the small heatsinks on the chipset. Perfect DVD playback with the onboard video, but I assume games will suck (haven't tested yet).

Cons: No DVI or HDMI, just VGA. Only 4 USB Ports, while there are 4(??!!) USB headers on the board.

Other Thoughts: Really great board, very stable and works fine with the C2D e6750 and GSkill 2x1GB DDR800 RAM. I was able to OC to 3.6Ghz on air with no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsBIOS Version F7 Updates

Pros: Stable and perform well under overclocking, running board for more than 10 months. Starting from BIOS F7, Gigabyte resumed support memory multiplier of 2. Now you have more flexibility to overclock the processor running a slower memory clock rate.

Cons: None. Gave 1 rating before due to the irresponsive engineering support, refused to provide memory multiplier of 2 in BIOS F5 and F6 which would allow lower memory frequency. Now this problem is corrected.

Other Thoughts: C2D 6320, Mushkin EP RAM, OC'ed CPU at 3.03Ghz = 7 X 433, memory at 866 = 2 X 433. Also read an review talking about running North Bridge G33 hot. Please refer to Intel website on G33 thermal specs. It can run pretty hot and certainly OC FSB will make it worse. ftp://download.intel.com/design/chipsets/designex/31696803.pdf

5 out of 5 eggsUN-KILLABLE!!!

Pros: STABLE! rock solid bord great overcloack best micro atx on market. runs cool 35 to 40 with q6700 and rosewill cooler at 2.9... Bios overclcok very helpful very esay. dont think i could kill this bord if i tried its like a vampire. also tons of sata. love this bord

Cons: bios tired to manage my cpu clock speed by undercutting my voltage thus my speed. had to adjust some presets to allow cpu to run full throttle. this was hard to figure out at first but once i got to it board is awesome... Gigabyte word to the wise esata needs to be on board not taking up one of my precious slots on my micro which has so few to begin with also only one pci slot after 2slot graphic card is installed

Other Thoughts: stable bord need a good case to maximize overclocking ablity

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!!

Pros: This thing is awesome. If you are looking for the perfect micro atx mobo, this is it. It is such an easy upgrade. The memory goes in much easier than other mobos ive used. LOTS OF SATA CONNECTORS! It even has 2 ide's for older cd drives and hdds, and it is very durable. When I was putting the heatsink in, i pushed hard to make sure it was in...and it is very durable. Keeps very cool. My temp is super low for a uatx

Cons: ummmm....not free? Make sure you have your windows disc, otherwise you will be out of luck. i found out the hard way.

Other Thoughts: My specs: Intel core 2 duo e6550, 2 x 1 gb gskill 800mhz, GIGABYTE GA-G33M-DS2R, corsair 550w psu. This was just to upgrade my Hew!ewett P@ckard P@villion a1110y.
