108dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio Playback

GIGABYTE motherboards feature higher capability audio solutions with 108dB Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) playback quality to deliver high-performance, multi-channel HD audio. SNR is a comparison of the amount of signal to the amount of noise - such as hiss - present in the signal (expressed in Decibels). A higher SNR equals a better audio experience. For example, 108dB, is a high audio specification, as this means the audio signal is 108dB higher than the level of the noise.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board

4 out of 5 eggsSolid!

Pros: I had this board for almost one month, and it has been performing flawless so far. It has lots of great features. This is my first Gigabyte board. All previous boards have been Asus. I'm glad that I made the switch. Overall, it is solid!

Cons: I can't get the eSATA (marvell controller) to support my Thermaltake BlacX dual docking station. It only recognizes one drive at a time and will ignore it when I have two drives docking. My Asus board with a J-micron controller supports it 100%. Not sure if this board supports port multiplier or it is an AMD driver issue. Also, I think the Intel RAID interface is superior vs Marvell. It is somewhat difficult to install the drivers that are downloaded from the Gigabyte's site. It is not clear which ones to use and where to to put them. Some drivers have multiple sub-folders with no explanation. I have never had problems with updating drivers. This is a first. So, I'm currently using the ones from the CD, which is easier to install.The CD wizard does it all. Asus does a better job with this. I guess I will have to install the utility to update the drivers. Also, there is no sleep mode indicator light.

Other Thoughts: Great board with a few minor glitches. I still think that, overall, it's a solid board and happy with it.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy installation

Pros: Everything is marked clearly on the board, works right out the box with AMD FX-6300. With Easytune6 that comes with the CD you can adjust and monitor CPU and SYS fan curve easily. There's nothing to complain.

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Slick - looks great for the price.
Not a bad buy for the 990FX chipset & fairly decent motherboard all-round. BIOS tools are attractive and practical.
Getting over 1TByte/s with my 4x SSD's in RAID0 (sequential write)
Over 600MB/s with a 512k file size

Tested with the FX-8350... works like a champ!

Cons: It takes quite a bit of tweaking to get this board to work effectively with the Phenom II X6 CPU (I'm not sure about compatibility with the rest of the series) - it will not give you great performance out of the box. The Gigabyte EasyTune tools also suck - if you're going to use it, it's a thermal & frequency monitor at best.
These boards are also junk if you want to set up RAID arrays. I've built two separate machines with this board, one with 4x SSD's in RAID0 and the other with 2x SSD's in RAID0. Constant Check Disk prompts, system freezes and poor performance in Windows. I'll have to buy a third party PCI-e controller for my drives, it really sucks.

Other Thoughts: Just a small point to note... only 6 SATA ports on the board... so go with the UD5 or UD7 if you need more.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away From Gigabyte

Pros: I would like to be able to use the motherboard to see if there are any pro's.

Cons: The motherboard has a glitch and only runs for a few minutes. I contacted tech support and after an inordinately long time got an RMA and weeks later got back the same motherboard. I sent it in for RMA another time and told them the board was defective. I got the board back again and low and behold, yup the same motherboard. How hard is it to test a board and determine a defect? Stay away from Gigabyte. They will rip you off and send back the same defective board over and over.

Other Thoughts: I work for a computer services company and buy dozens of motherboards for systems. i have never had the problems with a company that I have from Gigabyte. Stay away from them and go with a company with integrity.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value!

Pros: This thing is fantastic. It's one of the few that has USB 3.0 front panel options. Plus the bios looks and feels like an OS. It's loaded with options so if I ever want to OC anything in the future it should be perfect due to all the nice heat sinks :).

Cons: no PCI Express 3.0... but no AMD based motherboards have that yet :\.

Other Thoughts: Even though this is an AMD based board it did come with the SLI jumper. Which is awesome... my last SLI/Crossfire ready board was an MSI and... they failed to provide a jumper so I had to buy one.

1 out of 5 eggsCriminal

Pros: Good motherboard while it lasted.

Cons: Sent it in for repair and they voided my warranty cause they said it was rusted, but it was just light amount of dust. It's been in use for almost three years so there was a layer of dust in some spots. Somehow that was enough to void my warranty on a $130 motherboard. I will never buy gigabyte again.

Other Thoughts: Never buy gigabyte, their warranty is a scam. They are obviously looking for any reason they can to void a warranty. Are they really that strapped for cash? Not a good sign.

1 out of 5 eggsTwo DOA boards in a row, no indication of why

Pros: wouldn't know... never got one working.

Cons: received two of these-- both times I received power to all the fans, but no post, no beeps, no bios, no nothing. And this board gives no indication of what the heck if the problem. I was convinced I must be using incompatible components or maybe the CPU was dead, but alas, I replaced it with an ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX and everything worked great. What's particularly nice about this new motherboard is it has LEDs next to all the components, and they light up if there's a problem. So if there had been a problem with my CPU, I would have gotten a red light.

I contacted gigabyte via email. they were not helpful.

Other Thoughts: All hail helpful red LEDs!! Boo to motherboards that arrive broken but also don't give you any confirmation that they're broken (or that everything else is fine)
