5 out of 5 eggsRIP 9.5 yrs Later

Pros: Lasted 9+ years with various configurations. The final config was and Athlon 64 3500+ 939, with 4x1g DDR-400 (2 OCX, 2 A-Data) 2 SATA II HDD 80g, 1 Maxtor ATA-133 300g, 1 Samsung 22x DVD-RW, a Thermaltake 420w PSU and a Powercolor Radeon X1650 Pro (all purchased through NewEgg!) Running Windows XP Pro SP3 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in a dual boot config. Nice board, only issue ever was due to the stupid case that I used having an HDD cage sitting right where the Video Card hangs out at, not the board's fault. Board's I/O combinations made it perfect for my bench machine, going to miss the floppy drive and ATA connectors.

Cons: Outlasted Windows XP... 5v coupling capacitors smoked on me in 3 different locations, and that was probably due to the Thermaltake 420w giving up after 9.5 years, and under the strain from the constant HDD changes. So really none!

Other Thoughts: If I have all my PC builds last this long, I will not be getting a new computer very often.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Main Board

Pros: The board dropped in and was up at a high level of performance immediately. Set up is straight forward and many options exist for tuning.

Cons: None found

Other Thoughts: I would buy another without giving it a second thought

3 out of 5 eggsProbably Okay

Pros: It's a Gigabyte, so it should work well.

Cons: The AGP slot wouldn't recognize any of the video cards I put into it.

Other Thoughts: I tried calling customer service but they couldn't help me since I don't have a PC speaker. I got a different board and it recognized everything just fine. Bummer, I liked my previous Gigabyte board.

2 out of 5 eggsSound Problems

Pros: The board worked fine as far as performance

Cons: One of the sound ports is not working on the board. Instead of returning it, I went back to my soundblaster card.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: cheap, supports Opteron, good performance

Cons: none as of now

Other Thoughts: Very good motherboard, one of the few i could find that supports the Opteron, didnt identify the CPU at first but a BIOS update fixed it all. Its even a good overclocker, i have my Opty 144 at 2GHz, i can go higher as soon as i get my new RAM and a better HSF

4 out of 5 eggsVery good for the price

Pros: Great socket 939 MB for the price! With AMD processors so inexpensive now, you can put together a great system.

Cons: ALi chipset is probably not the best. No Vista drivers for the SATA/Raid controller yet. Not sure if they will write any. You can buy a PCI SATA controller though.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install AMD 4600 X2, thought MB was dead; but these new MB's, you have to plug-in a square power connector next to the CPU also, or it won't boot. From old school, didn't read menu.

Cons: None so far, just calling Microsoft, everytime you upgrade something major.

Other Thoughts: I almost bought a new MB. thinking it was dead. Gigabyte, should make sure, oldtimers know about the extra square socket, on the MB.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Had no problem installing X2 4600 CPU. Easiest CPU to install in a long time.

Cons: I got the last one, newegg was out of stock, after order.(bad omen). MB would not boot with any of my memory, or changing mem slot. Last GB MB, I'll ever buy. Too bad I can't exchange brands, I would. Also, power plug
too close to heat sink, very little space.

Other Thoughts: I think the north bridge is defective.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: none

Cons: Crashed because of the onboard NIC or any other PCI NIC under many configurations. Highly recommend avoiding this product.
