5 out of 5 eggs7 Years later.

Pros: You want pros? How about 6.8 Years of use? Stable as hell. This thing lasted through 2 different power supplies dying. Dying memory. Hot summers.

This. Motherboard. Is. A. Tank.

Cons: So, 2 cons. First- I bought this mobo thinking that 4 memory slots would be plenty. But, alas, DDR3 got cheap, and 3 way kits saw the way of the do-do. Less a con, more consumer stupidity. Second con- I could NOT get a good, stable OC on this thing. Stock was always amazing, but even the smallest OC would fail a 24 hour burn in.

Oh. No SATA3. But this was the budget board back in the day.

Other Thoughts: So, the wife is going to get this system after a new case arrives this week. Moving to another X58 system but needed a 120mm rear exhaust for closed loop cooling.

Goodbye old friend. Gunna miss ya.

3 out of 5 eggsDead MB

Pros: Easy installation, lasted me ~3 years w/ limiting trouble.

Cons: After a week hiatus, I turned my computer on only to realize that it turns on and off every couple of secs. Also, my monitors just remain black, so I don't know what's going on. My warranty just ran out a week ago, but hopefully Gigabyte will honor such request, especially since most of my parts are from them.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great for first year and a half

Pros: Looks pretty

Cons: Everything was pretty smooth up until about after a year and a half of owning it. I've been having issues with reboots without a BSOD. Optical drive connections started acting up, USB ports started acting up, sometimes the video card or sound card would have to be switched to another slot. But the main problem is that whenever I do anything like watch an HD video or even boot up a game, the system just reboots, every time, within a minute.

Other Thoughts: I don't know exactly what's going on, but for all of this stuff to happen at once from out of nowhere has to be from an undurable and unstable board.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: It's been stable for over 2 years. The dual bios is excellent. Runs i7 920 perfectly and stable with easy tune 6 overclock. Upgraded to Windows 7 (64 bit) with no problems. I originally was on Windows XP (32 bit).

Cons: Just added 16 GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600 ram in Windows 7 (64 Bit).

The system shows 16GB but uses only 8GB. Why is that? I hope Gigabyte responds to me to fix this problem. Great board otherwise.

Other Thoughts: If Gigabyte helps me fix the 16 GB ram not being "fully used" in Windows 7, I will give this board 5 eggs. Newegg gave me exclellent service on the delivery of this board.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed Board

Pros: -Worked great when it did work.
-Easy OC features and an intuitive BIOS.

Cons: -Only 4 memory slots, 3 for triple channel.
-This is the second EX58-UD3R to die on me. My PC will attempt to boot for 5 seconds, then it will restart. No POST. Rinse and repeat until I shut off the power supply. Now I have to do an RMA this late in my ownership. I'm going to contact Gigabyte on Monday to see how much I will be charged for a repair/replacement. If it's expensive, I'll just buy another board from another manufacturer.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate on review

Pros: Worked great while it worked

Cons: After 18 months the board lost all SATA ports. I am a tech with a master degree in CS so I have the tools to check out the board. Would hang on boot at HD access. After running complete diagnostic and troubleshooting determined SATA chips had died. Strange thing is there are 2 SATA chipsets onboard and both went out. Hard drive functions correctly on another system. No changes were made and the MB was not overclocked. Tried all BIOS configurations. They just died. Running system on UPS.

Other Thoughts: First giabyte board I purchased. I normally go with ASUS or MSI. I have 6 desktops in my home office all system built by me. Have ASUS boards that have been running >5 years. You can expect a bad board from any of the MB makers but most problems show up within the first burn in period. Replaced with a ASUS X58 which is runiing now for three days using all the same parts. Note that there have been lots of problems with the X58 tech and my board was first gen (version 1.0) but still a MB should have a longer life spand than 18 months.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board!

Pros: -Dual BIOS. This has saved me loads of times when I was overclocking, and I messed up the voltages.

-Cheap! This was cheaper than most 1336 boards at the time, I would have paid out more, but then I'd be over my budget of 1800$.

- Ran really well! Took 15 minutes to install W7 x64, well, I think it was 15 minutes, it was the time it took to have a shower.

Cons: - Only has 4 RAM slots. Would have been nice with 6, but if you get a 6 gig kit, thats more than enough RAM for quite a while.

- The battery is underneath my HD5850, meaning I have to take the GPU out before I can take the battery out, if need be.

- Some issues with the drivers, but that may just because this computer is too fast for the program.

- Might not be enough room for crossfire. Unsure as of right now.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a P4 with 2.5 gigs of RAM to this, and wow. You should definitely upgrade!

If I were you, I'd have a PS/2 mouse on hand, just in case you did mess something up, you can still acess the bios.

2 out of 5 eggsFinicky and one serious bug

Pros: None right now except for the very low price.

Cons: With a 930 chip at default BIOS settings and the latest BIOS plus Gigabyte recommended memory, a RAID array on the GSATA ports routinely disappears in win-xp or Sun Solaris Unix.

Other Thoughts: Was a very finicky board to set up for stock speed and/or overclock even with the latest BIOS. I don't recommend this board to anyone but those wanting a serious challenge and does not care about the GSATA ports. Maybe just a bad board but I won't have another. Simply unacceptable. This one is scrap.
