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

5 out of 5 eggsgreat mini ITX board

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!

5 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Great board! Have bought 3 or 4 of these now. Excellent choice for an ITX build. Warranty is good. Express Recovery 2 is a very useful tool, especially for those that build and sell these systems. It allows you to create a recovery partition, much like places like Dell or HP would. I have been using that tool on nearly every system I build using a Gigabyte board. Probably the past 50 systems or so, been a wonderful tool.

As for this board? HDMI out. PCIe16x slot. Small size. Bundled with an i3 or higher processor, and it will rip though about anything. Most of the ones I build have either dual core Cels, or Pentiums, but a couple of them have had i3's, etc. 8-16GB as well. 500GB drives or bigger. One even has Blu Ray setup on it. Really awesome little systems. Using Inwin ITX towers with these.

Cons: Well, with any ITX build, you are working with limited space. Take your time, plan how you want to assemble. Watch installing the 24pin power connector. You WILL flex the board too much if you just shove it on there. I tend to work it down gently, by rocking it back and forth (along the length of the connector) as it goes down so the board doesn't over flex. Its possible that you could crack off a component if you are too forceful.

Other Thoughts: Did have a DOA once, but Newegg came through as always, so no worries. My customers are starting to want these smaller computers more and more, now that they are more powerful yet still in a small package.

Inwin ITX Tower cases (50 dollar price point)
Pareema 8GB kit (4gbx2 1333)
500GB WD SATA
Samsung, LG, or Asus DVD drives,
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combos


Makes for a nice simple home compute build.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed with my first

Pros: Stellar interface, solid capacitors, "hybrid efi", excellent form factor, easy set up and makes for a very nice custo-mac.

Cons: This, my first Gigabyte motherboard, died almost two months in. Warnings all over Newegg and the internet about this, but I didn't listen.

Other Thoughts: Baffling. Bought the unit to set up as a custo mac. Gigabyte has a stellar reputation and after going through hell with my Intel board I was more then happy to give this one a try (even tho it is not overclockable). Set up for my Mac went like a breeze, then all of a sudden I started having problems waking from sleep (to a black screen), then today -- just died. Will not post or go into bios. Seems like a waste. Avoid! You've been warned.
