4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board With Some SATA Quirks

Pros: Installed easily in my old tower case.
Works great.

Cons: It has 4 SATA connectors but they appear to be IDE/SATA emulations. The BIO does not show any SATA drives, just IDE drives. When I connected my C: drive to SATA 0 it worked fine for a while then started giving me the dreaded "A Disk Read Error Occured". I moved the C: drive to SATA 1 connector and that fixed that problem. In the meantime I moved my D: drive to from SATA 1 to SATA 2 and everything appeared to be working OK. I did an Acronis True Image backup to D: and when I tried to restore it (just testing). Acronis could not see the D: drive. Acronis told me I would have make a WinPE Boot Restore Disk due to motherboard hardware configurations so I made one (PITA) and after booting from it I could see the C: and D: drives. Unfortunately, the drive letters were reversed (the C: was recognized as D: and visa-versa. Back to the drawing board! I moved the drive D: cable from SATA 2 to SATA 3 and that fixed the drive order. If you buy one of these boards and want to install 2 SATA drives you have to use the SATA 1 and SATA 3 connectors. None of this is in the manual or the BIOS. I like the board but this undocumented setup is ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this board. I put Win 7 64 bit on it and it flies. There is no Floppy connector and the PowerLED connector is 3 pin instead of the 2 pin that was part on my case wiring. A spare 4 pin connector and an Xacto knife fixed that problem. I bought a 20 to 24 pin power cable adapter to connect the Power supply to the motherboard and so far everything is working great.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY THIS BOARD! Very sensitive to ram choice and virtually no support available.

Pros: The board had all the requirements to replace a mobo that was damaged during a power spike

Cons: Very little support for 4gb ram sticks

Other Thoughts: I'm becoming very irritated with this purchase. I bought this motherboard and what I thought was 2 sticks of good quality 4gb ram. When I put this system together, I get one long beep from the award bios, seeming to indicate the ram is not inserted properly. Upon reading the reviews for this motherboard, it seems that it is very sensitive to the type of ram. The supported list of compatible ram from gigabyte shows little or no support for 4gb ram sticks. All I want is for someone to tell me which ram is compatible. I went to gigabytes website for tech support and after jumping through hoops trying to answer all of their required questions just to submit the support ticket, I gave up. How am I supposed to know the bios version when it won't even boot up??

5 out of 5 eggsUsed Core 2 (Q6850) Extreme from old Gateway to build new desktop

Pros: Older CPUs outlive their supporting motherboards, compatibility issues continue to arise. I was reluctant to spend more to rebuild an aged platform especially since the Gigabyte website says that the MB supports only up to Windows 7 - 64 bit. This board does not support the USB 3 as another slightly more sophisticated board from Gigabyte does G41MT-USB3 but it was out of stock and I didn't want to wait (who knows it might never be restocked).
The best news was that it supports flawlessly Windows 10. I purchased the full retail version of 8.1 pro (64 bit) and then upgraded online. The only caveat was that trying to jump from 8.1 pro to 10 was too big and it failed but once I did all the 8.1 upgrades THEN went to 10, it worked fine.
I rebuilt the desktop with the following new components (plus old CPU and 500 GB HD formerly in RAID 0 with lots of issues):
1 x G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti (this was constantly crashing on my old Vista 32 bit set up but no more)
1 x GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
1 x Rosewill Valens-500, Valens Series 500W Power Supply, 80 PLUS Gold Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU ...
1 x Cooler Master N200 - Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Front 240mm Radiator Support and Ventilated Front Panel
1 x ASUS Black Blu-ray Drive SATA Model BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS - OEM
1 x Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS[number]5-3.5G - OEM
1 x Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan (this was a pain because the bolts have two opposing sides shaved down and you have to insert them correctly or the threads get easily damaged, also the instructions don't tell you that you are looking at the BACK of the motherboard, I thought it was for a different socket setup but it wasn't)
2 x COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black) (these can actually go OUTSIDE the coolmaster microATX cage but behind the front screen)
1 x 140mm 25mm New Case Fan 12V DC 74.6CFM STB Silent Cooling 3Pin Ball Bg 324B* (for the top)

Cons: Does NOT support RAID 0 (I had used PCmover so data loss wasn't an issue but I had to reformat the drives which is virtually impossible using the windows set up until I did it through the command prompt feature using "c:\>format f: /fs:ntfs" you can name it after it formats so no need to include that command here).
Does not support USB 3 (unlike another version of this same MB).

The memory from other reviews is finicky but I used G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT as others recommended and I have not had any problems.
The ASUS Blue-ray drive only was recognized in SATA 1 slot for some reason with the HD in slot zero, this caused some frustration, I had to boot from the USB-CDROM (use F12 to set) but later figured out that the ASUS drive had to be in slot 1.
Placing the back thin silver metal panel was a little pain but figured it out.
Took a little while figuring out which tiny thin power cables go to which pins on the MB but go it by elimination.

Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT: In total I spent $349.76 to resurrect this old computer + $135 for full version of Windows 8.1 pro (64 bit, also included 32 bit), in total about $500 but a REFURBISHED i3 Core, 1 TB HD, with 8 GB memory is about $300 (as of Dec. 2015). All in all rebuilding an old model and buying a new one is about the same but the i3 core is likely considerably faster than my old Core 2 Ext (Q6850), albeit not as fun (nor frustrating, ha!), I just couldn’t bring myself to throw it away nor waste time trying to sell it. The rebuild however boots in about 1/5th the time as before and works very fast, good computer for the kids to share.

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent little board

Pros: Breathed new life into Core 2 Quad Q9300 and spare Windows 7 license. Paired with Mushkin Chronos SSD for excellent performance at price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had some difficulty getting memory right. These work without fail: G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT.

Single sided chips of same capacity would not work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat new, simple LGA 775 board

Pros: -Reliable, great for simple overclocks and getting more use out of an old LGA 775 chip you might have

Cons: -Non so far or that I can think of

Other Thoughts: -As long as you choose the correct RAM you should have no problems getting the system to post, also make sure your CPU is on the support list.

-I overclocked a Pentium E5200 from the stock 2.5Ghz to 3Ghz using the FSB and core voltage with no issues for a simple, yet nice, overclock.

4 out of 5 eggsThis Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2PT (Rev. 2.1) Motherboard

Pros: It works as advertised. It works well with my 'old' Intel Q6700 Quad Core (Core Duo) CPU, and GeForce 8800 GTS 512 (G92 GPU) video card. My Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit has shown no problems so far.

Cons: Only one thing, trying to find out what 4-GB DDR3 would work in it was not easy, in fact very frustratingly hard, as they do not list 8GB (2x4GB) in their RAM compatibility list on the website.

Other Thoughts: For those who need to know: I know the following 2 RAMs (2x4GB for 8GB total) work with this motherboard;

1. G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT (What I'm currently using.) [Can be bought through Newegg.]

2. 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.5V 512Meg x 64 from Crucial.com [*Not carried by Newegg!*]

Because it took so long to finally find out why my original RAM purchase took me s-o-o long to finally figure out I had bought an incompatible RAM, it went well past the 30 day limit on returns, and now I'm stuck with 8GB of DDR3 RAM that I have no use for.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Board for old CPU

Pros: Great board to breathe life back into old processors that are laying around, and it uses DDR3 RAM.

Cons: Very picky about RAM. Make sure to use what is listed on the manufacturers website.

Other Thoughts: Have used this board to build several computers for old 775 processors I had laying around, and it works everytime. I like this board because it is a simple motherboard that just works.

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD 775 BOARD

Pros: It works great after I found ram that works. I had to pull ram from another CP and then it booted right up and I downloaded W7 in no time. I had an old chip laying around and thought why not give it a new life.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used 2x2 Wintec 1333 ram that I pulled out of another computer and it posted. I know this is an old build but I had the chip collecting dust and found this mobo still available so why not.
