2 out of 5 eggsIt's definitely not Scottish

Pros: Well, it's functional and hasn't failed.

Cons: Where to start. I've had this for over 2 years and not once has the clock been correct. Not the hardware clock but the what-time-is-it clock. No measure of NTP syncing will save me. Windows 7, Ubuntu, Fedora...no dice. Also, the onboard video gets tired at times and starts spitting lines out all over the screen. You've got to reboot. Again, it did this in all OSs.

Other Thoughts: Just ain't worth it friend.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!!

Pros: Best board ive EVER purchased. It'll house an AM3 processor(a few variables), DDR2 1066, overclocks nicely!!!
PHENOM II DENEB 940 :D :D

Cons: none for me yet!!! ive only had it for almost 2 months.

Other Thoughts: Amd Phenom II Deneb 3.0 @ 3.5 GHZ 1.4V! Any lower on voltage caused curious error with "performance test 6.1!" But i'm not done doing some upgrades soo...

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: *Setup was un-eventful
*Instructions were straight forward
*Layout was excellent
*OCZ Fatal1ty runs at 1066 without issue
*The onboard HD 3300 is a good value. If you need to throw together a machine the video is more than adequate for most applications and games

Cons: I purchased a ATI 4830 to take advantage of the Hybrid Crossfire on this board. What they fail to tell you is you need to use a HD 3400 or HD 2400
After OS re-install etc Gigabyte emailed me back (took a week)

*** Dear Customer,

Sorry, it will not work. The Hybrid-Crossfire feature (combining the onboard graphics with a PCIE graphics) will only work with an ATI Radeon HD 2400 or 3400 series graphics card. You are already using a power graphics card, HD4830. Combining the onboard graphics will be of little help.

Thank you for choosing Gigabyte products ***

Other Thoughts: Newegg as usual was very quick with an RMA to return the HD 4830. Why would you shop anywhere else?

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Very stable, no issues. Has all the right features.

Cons: SATA drivers where the largest PIA ever. Windows 7 Beta had no issues. XP did not like the driver disc. After 5 days of trying the right way I ended up having to hack my own .oem file. My only other complaint is it only has one IDE port.

Other Thoughts: I have not used the on board video, so I can't review that aspect

4 out of 5 eggsthe board of goodness

Pros: it works fine! i like it cause it didnt break, looks pretty, and is just the right amount of wattage for my cpu. holds the ram and my graphics card fits fine. so no measurment problems. it has plenty of slots for expansion and i love how there's so many choices to as what you wanna put in it

Cons: there is absolutlley no problem with this board. its big, it has space for everything, it is SLI capable, it can do up to 140 watt's? i think? it holds eight gig's of ram it measures a 1066 wattage for the ram and thats pretty standard right now so you wont need to find any special ram. did i mention it still works?

Other Thoughts: new has yet to embrace telaportation as a viable means of transit....

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MB

Pros: Booted right up. Dual bios (2 is always better than one). Cool software for overclocking and controlling fans without entering bios. Tons of features to play with. 3300 ATI IGP with 128 MB DDR3 mem with the option for 512 more of shared mem in bios

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this board for my kids to play their games on. The IGP works great for their games; Simms, Spore, Zoo tycoon, and Warcraft.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Motherboard

Pros: This mobo has a lot of the essentials in the Bios, the overclocking is straight forward if a bit cryptic, the manual isn't for a noob but if you work at it, it is accurate. The onboard sound is a bit hinky in Win 7 64 bit but haven't tried it with vista X86 so can't say for sure, but the board functions perfectly as far as I can tell. Lots of OC options and they are spot on for accuracy. Haven't tried out the onboard video but looks fairly straight forward and there's all three connections for it. HDMI, DVI, D-SUB along with the sideport ddr3 ram to assist. The Board is disposed to the crossfire from ATI setup, but I'm an Nvidia guy so SLI is where it's at.

Cons: The Raid setup is a rather steep learning curve because there's so many options for the driver selection and it was a 2-day process. I followed the instructions in the book but it didn't take for the first 20 or so tries. Then all at once, viola!!!! it found the correct driver for raid and bam it is now bullet proof.

Other Thoughts: This board is a middle of the road board for technicality issues, but the darn thing is very user friendly if you have a decent background in system building or a fair amount of hardware knowledge. The board is fun to play around with, very forgiving thanks to the dual bios, wish the express recovery and recovery 2 worked with the raid set-up but that's the way the ball bounces.

Over all, great board, that does what I fully expected it to do. My previous Hi-end board was an A8N-SLI Premium Asus skt939 so this board fits nicely byigainto that niche for enough controls to do anything Overclockers heart could desire. Great Job Gigabyte and the Egg Rocks as always.
