4 out of 5 eggs2nd time the charm.

Pros: Chose this mobo based on ARS Technica system guide, works fine. I haven't overclocked yet, but it's easy with the bios. Tons of USB ports and Sata connections, onboard gigabit ethernet seems a touch faster than the D-Link network card on my old system, onboard audio sounds fine through my existing 5.1 setup, layout was easy to build on. For those who like to see the inside of their stuff, the blue board looks good with copper heat sinks and blue LED's.

Cons: 1st mobo was DOA, not because of manufacturing defect, because some dummy in a warehouse dropped it. Corner of box was crushed in, it never should have been shipped. I know it wasn't by UPS because the large box with all shipped components wasn't damaged.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Like Water

Pros: This second GA board I built a 945 a while back and liked it so much I decided to give this one a go. This I also like. It has lots of pros, generous usb, firewire sata, e-sata, sys fans etc. Just as important are those high quality capacitors, MOSFETs and chokes. That what makes the board. The heat pipe works really well. I am running a q600 processor @ 2890ghz x4 (so far) with 4gb of 1066 corsair ram, also overclocked. It's hard to find real-world tests that will push this to 100% on all fours, except for video rendering, however, I have tested under several such scenarios and the board is very stable. Even with a bunch stuff running, such as recording of the TV card and encoding a DVD, running a spyware scan, it can still play games like farcry and quake 4 on ultra high settings etc. Can handle lots of traffic. Just what you want with a quad rig, to run whatever you want without having to bother about whats already running.

Cons: The board is a little cramped,a minor issue. Just little things like that 4 pin atx connection is actually 8 pin for quad support and its almost impossible to get the connector in and out without bending that really pretty heat sink. While the audio is a vast improvement over previous issues it still falls short and I bet noone actually uses it, I don't. They should either go all the way or not bother with onboard sound. If they were thinking they could loose a PCI slot beacause the onboard sound was just so good they are just wrong. If you are feeding High fiedelity sound equipment with your rig you will notice. Also most good video options will rob you of yet another pci slot. This is a problem with most boards. If they made a stretch version, I would have certainly bought that instead. I don't like paying for connections I can't get too and use.

Other Thoughts: Well, getting my cpu over clocked wasn't that straightforward at first, at least with the f6 bios, then magically the f8 bios appeared and and so did all of my problems. The thing just flies now. I saw a complaint about the F8 bios, I don't know. After, I flashe the f8 and added another 2gb of ram, I booted up to find only 3 of 4 cores running at 257 mhz. How wierd is that. I ended up clearing the CMOS, re-posting and reconfiruing everything. It eventually ran just perfectly. Such Joy!

5 out of 5 eggsPretty nice MB, almost perfect

Pros: - 8 USB on back, 4 on front
- 2 Fire wire on back, 1 up front
- Decent Bios options
- Very nice layout
- OK price, wish it was a bit lower

Cons: - Don't update the bios to F8, you'll get memory errors in Memtest86. Stay on F7 for now.

- Wish there were more fan headers on the MB.

Other Thoughts: - Disable any components in the bios you don't use, like parallel, serial, audio, etc.

- Get the latest RealTek audio and lan drivers from RealTek. The drivers from Gigabyte a slightly out of date.

- If you set the Intel SATA ports to AHCI, be sure to have the Intel ICH9 drivers on floppy if you're doing an XP install. Same for the Gigabyte SATA ports.

- Overall a very nice board, with lots of features and a decent price. Very few cons.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: New build based on this board works great. All integrated components work and the board seems to be very stable right out of the box. System is subjectively very fast, although I have not benchmarked it. Blue board with neon card slots and copper heat pipes; looks great.

Cons: Integrated sound is mediocre but it works.

Other Thoughts: Drop some small change on a decent Soundblaster audio card. Build is based on a Antec 900 case, Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P-Rev2, Intel C2D 3ghz, XFX 8800 GT 512, GSkill 2 x 2gb 1000mhz, WD Raptor, PC Power & Cooling 610w

5 out of 5 eggsWOrks as expected

Pros: Posted first time and every time since. Have not overclocked yet, but will get to that. Runs cool, but then again, it is paired with 8800gtx and intel quad 6600 running on water blocks with a zalman reserator XT. No fans and the CPU is at 32 and the gtx is at 40 (52 with full load on TFC2 high settings). Not too shabby! Raid runs fine, though make sure you have a HDD for the drivers or you are sunk. Plenty of SATA slots.

Cons: One water block screw on the zalman 8800gtx block gets bent by the 3rd ram slot on this board. I took the screw out and all still seems good after 4 days, so it wasn't really a problem, but worth pointing out. Also, some of the NXZT Apollo case wires (HDD power switch) didnt have notations that matched on teh board, which was frustrating, but best guess worked the first time.

Other Thoughts: It supports 45nm chips (it says) so Id say it is an allaround great purchse...jsut dont have the overclock data yet, but I have high hopes.

2 out of 5 eggsWorking with big issues

Pros: Easy to setup, good layout.

Cons: Doesn't pay the rent. Worse than that, fully corrupt bios and Gigabyte customer support no help at all. Does random blue screens with IRQ and "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT" errors.

Other Thoughts: I will stay away from Gigabyte this time around and try out the ip35 pro.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great motherboard. Easy install. Tons of SATA and USB ports which is why I went with this over Asus.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Two things to keep in mind. Old bootable cds which use the old driver (oakcdrom.sys) will not work going forward with most of the newer boards. They need to be rewritten to use the new driver gcdrom.sys. Not a big deal but it can be a hassle if you use that sort of thing (Ghost, PM etc). The other thing, if you plan on enabling AHCI for your SATA drives (enables ncq and a few other performace features) do some research on it first. Vista you will need to enable the AHCI service first, and XP is a little more involved than that. Try querying AHCI on wikipedia, you'll find what you need. If you do a fresh install, enable it beforehand and save yourself some trouble.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Value - reliability??

Pros: Lots of features - Intel Raid is nice and works very well. All of the USB ports are also nice to have since everything is USB anymore.

Cons: First one was buggy and had to send it back for a replacement. Started with RAID problems and then decided to not post anymore. Had it for two weeks and then dead.??? Have had the replacement running for a little over a week so I hope that this one works.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Gigabyte board. don't like the idea of a problematic board but it can happen from any company.
When will MB manufacturers put the video card slot a little further away from the memory slots, it would make memory installation easier.
