1 out of 5 eggswhat happend...

Pros: Size, features, price

Cons: driver support, OS support functionality

Other Thoughts: I purchased this board as an upgrade from my Core2Quad system, In the beginning I was using a SSD and installed windwos 8.1 all seemed fin everything installed, and updated fine... next thing I know the system starts blue Screening, over and over, I updated the firmware on the SSD, and that seem to fix everything for a day or so. More windows Updates, and again blue screes... Now I can not get a stable load of any OS. Windows 8 continues to crash, Windows 7 wont load (No storage Driver support (yes I downloaded and attempted to load additional drivers)). so I have a 600$ system all new parts and can't do anything but look at it.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent motherboard

Pros: I bought this motherboard because it was better than the economy boards and not as expensive as some to the higher priced ones. I So far have not been disappointed. A bit overpowered for my server, but it works great and boots really fast unlike my other desktops with about the same speed processor. I like the boards color and though I had a time with some to the connections being under my power supply, it is a good motherboard.

Cons: The only think I think I did not like about the mother board was the lack of a speaker connector and no internal USB3 connector. I did not notice that originally or I might have bought a different board. Still I was able to get around it by routing one the external USB3 ports to the internal cable of my case so I could have a USB3 port on the front.

5 out of 5 eggsGood mobo

Pros: Has USB 3.0 connectivity for the back panel IO. Cheap. Good placement of inputs. Works as advertised with my Intel Xeon E3 1270.

Cons: No USB 3.0 inputs for front panel headers, but at least it came with USB 3.0 inputs on the back panel IO.

Other Thoughts: This is a very general mobo. I use it as a gaming/video editing build. Since it is cheap and entry level, there isn't room for many upgrades. There are only 2 Sata slots so I will probably use both for storage instead of 1 storage and 1 optical drive.

Overall, I'm happy with this mobo. If I could do it over, I would definitely have payed the extra $30 or so to buy a mobo with more features/upgradeability; but that is not a knock on this mobo. For what it is advertised to do and it's price, it is a very good mobo!

3 out of 5 eggsLove it....except for one thing

Pros: Fits well with my case ( Cooler Master Elite 130) and has my favorite color, blue.

Cons: The only problem is that I cant use the front USB3 panel on my case with the motherboard because the motherboard has a different USB 3.0 connector than a regular one. You can even see it in the pictures on the description page if you do not know what I am talking about.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard works great. I just wish Gigabyte would contact me about why the USB3 pins are set up as shown in the picture. (I contacted Gigabyte but they won't return my emails.)

4 out of 5 eggsStable good Board

Pros: Works well using I-5 with no built in video, Nvidia card. Its a real Stable board , everything works USB 3 Esata, Sata, HDMI, VGA
Analog Sound USB 2 (didnt try Digtal sound outs)

Cons: It has BIOS text screen so if you were looking for fancy UEFI bios screen its not there. I tried to install Windows 7 and 8 (the beta test version) with a GPT drive, but they wouldnt take. (worked fine with MBR drive) I thought that it was possible with UEFI but I was just experimenting, and Im not sure if Im right. Other than that I really like the board, I have two of them

Other Thoughts: Cant go wrong with this board even has an IDE mode in case things arent recognized in the operating system your installing. Windows worked in native SATA but Clonezilla only worked with IDE

4 out of 5 eggsGood Basic board

Pros: Small form factor, supports full size graphics card and 2 sticks of ram, pretty good price. Plays well with other operating systems :)

Cons: Only 2 Sata ports

Other Thoughts: One ram stick caused problems and memory error crashes in windows 7. This may be the Ram, but memtest did not find any errors. So it is either incompatible with 2 sticks of Corsiar XMS3 4GB ram (the 8GB kit), OR it's a defect with something on the motherboard. Either way, I would recommend not using Corsair XMS3 ram with this board. I could not find it on the compatibility charts on Gigabyte's website either. Other than that, the board has been fine with no issues.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap "Super Mac Mini"

Pros: Followed the Customac template and built a Mac Mini hackintosh. First installed Snow Leopard without issue, patched it to 10.6.8 and then upgraded to Mountain Lion. Geekbench score runs around 9700.

Fits well in a Silverstone Sugo SG05 case.

Decent amount of external ports for a mini ITX motherboard, layout is acceptable.

Cons: Didn't buy it from Newegg as the price + i5-2500K was much higher here than the deal at the local Mxxxxxxx shop :(

Couldn't boot off a USB stick for some reason, but creating the Mountain Lion Unibeast install on an external USB hard disk worked fine.

Would have been nice to have an additional SATA connector as 2 is fairly skimpy. No wireless or Bluetooth built in but I knew this. Also with the H61 chipset you can't overclock with the multiplier, despite the fact that you can set it in the bios. Not fiddling with the base clock.

Other Thoughts: Configuration for a nearly "out of the box" inexpensive Hackintosh experience:

H61N-USB3
i5-2500K or i3-2105, stock cooler is fine
4, 8 or 16GB DDR3 1333
SATA disk, either
Sony Optiarc DVD drive (preferred)
integrated HD3000 graphics or nVidia Kepler-based graphics card (I'm using the new GT 640, pretty cheap and decent)
Shell out $29 for Snow Leopard (have to special order it for pickup at an Apple Store or mailed to you)
Shell out $19 for Mountain Lion.

So far I'm very happy with the build!
