4 out of 5 eggsGreat MOBO

Pros: Great lifetime, I've had mine for over 5 years.
It's very small, but not ideal for a gaming setup.

Cons: Not for gaming. It only supports one GPU and 2 ram sticks. Works great for casual use, like browsing the internet or playing flash games.

Other Thoughts: I want a new motherboard so I game make a proper gaming rig.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Caps!!!

Pros: Nice micro ATX board for the money

Cons: Never, ever, expected a CAP problem now that we are years past this widespread problem. After only 2 years, two bloated caps caused the board to fail. It seems that solid caps are only used around the CPU, and the rest of the board still uses the cheaper caps that can blow up and fail. I own 4 of these boards, and 8 of the newer boards that still use cheaper caps on most of the board.
I expect more problems with all computers that have these boards.

Other Thoughts: I bought 15 RZ400 boards years ago, and ALL of them have stood the test of time after 8 years. I assumed incorrectly that Gigabyte had a handle on the bad cap problem. Not so. I am very disappointed. Their RMA process is a paperwork nightmare and not worth the bother. RMA experience has added insult to injury.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value board from Gigabyte

Pros: For the few dozen green I spent on this, this board delivers. It supports 4GB of memory, has a bit of expansion available, and overclocks pretty well for a cheap Intel chipset. I'm satisfied.

Cons: For the time being I need to keep my hard drive (160GB IDE Maxtor) and my DVD burner on one cable, which slows a lot of things way down. It's about time I upgraded anyways.

Other Thoughts: This is a rewrite to my past review, on which I only put one egg for some reason. This board is far from a one-egg rating.

4 out of 5 eggsConfused with processor on motherboard

Pros: Very excited to test it out, havent been able to get it to boot.

Cons: cant get the motherboard to work yet

Other Thoughts: trying this mother board with a Intel Pentium E2200 Allendale 2.2GHz along with CORSAIR 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model VS2GB667D2 ram but havent been able to get it to turn on, connected everything and plugged in a D-sub monitor PS/2 mouse and keyboard yet nothing shows up for the monitor, tested on multiple monitors, rechecked all connections, yet cant get it to boot yet. any suggestions, i think the BIOS is F3 right now, checked the GIGABYTE website and said i might need to update bios to F4 but if i cant boot the computer how would i do that ?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: For a basic build this is a great Motherboard. Posted first boot. Accepted and fully recognized DDR2800 RAM without issue and has run flawlessly so far (standard DDR2667). It is nice to read a manual that is written in "complete English" and has very well laid out diagrams. Very compact configuration but the layout makes it easy to install all of the components without having hands the size of a small child.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard for cheap build

Pros: My first motherboard purchase, installed into a ANTEC Sonata III with an Intel Allendale 1.8 and 4 GB (2x2gb) of WINTEC AMPO DDR2 667. Also have 3 SATA hard drives installed, and a wireless PCI card.

Cons: none so far. everything there that I wanted, for a great price.

Other Thoughts: none tech savvy enough to overclock, but this is a great board for my first personal pc build. if you are looking to keep things simple and cheap, this is a great start.

Pros: LoVE it GOOD FETURES reliable

Cons: none really but super werid oc issue see below

IMO you should attach a fan to the northbridge It gets way to hot for my liking

Other Thoughts: If you are having this problem
