2 out of 5 eggsDead RAM Slot

Pros: Inexpensive, Small, Great for a basic system

Cons: When I tried to add a PCIe card to this system I had to remove a stick of RAM. So I just sent this to be RMAd but that doesn't even make sense.

4 out of 5 eggsPerforms Great

Pros: Small board
Onboard... Well, everything but RAM and CPU
PCIx 16X slot
8-Channel Audio
3-Year Warranty
Strong performance for price

Cons: Only 2 DIMM slots,
Only accepts up to 16GB max RAM
Only accepts up to 1333MHz RAM

Other Thoughts: Definitely not for super-serious overclockers, speed-freaks, or heavy modders, but I coupled it with 8GB 1333MHz G.SKILL RipJaws RAM, a Core i5 3570K 3.8GHz CPU, and a 1GB EVGA nVidia GeForce 650 TI SSC (all from right here on Newegg), and it plays everything I throw at it with ease, even on high settings - including the Crysis series and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon at 1080p at 45fps+. If that's not good enough for you, you could always toss in a faster high-end 3GB card and game at 60fps+ in every game. Definitely a good budget board, and has given me no problems whatsoever, even after 7-8 months of nonstop hardcore gaming.

I only gave it four instead of 5 stars because I just went to upgrade to 16GB of RAM and was annoyed to discover it only has 2 DIMM slots (for come reason I'd thought it had 4 slots), so now I have to sell or give away my 8GB of RAM and buy an entire new 16GB set of DIMMs. So the board is a bit limited in terms of expansion, but oh well. Still worth it.

4 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: Works like it should. I have had no issues at all after 6 months of use. Nice price, works well for budget builds.

Cons: Nothing really. It's small, but it's a micro ATX so that should be expected.

2 out of 5 eggsOk budget board but SATAs get blocked

Pros: compact design, solidly built. Supports almost all peripherals. Inexpensive

Cons: Not good with full size graphics card - ends up blocking one of the 4 SATA sockets so I can only access 3 of the 4.

Other Thoughts: Too bad about the SATA socket location on the board. I have a Radeon HD 6870 graphics card and it ends up covering 1 of the 4 SATA sockets so I can only hook up 1 DVD drive and 2 storage systems (SSD and HDD). 4th socket is squarely under the graphics card. I guess they should have said you need a 1/2 size graphics card for this board otherwise you sacrifice one of the SATA sockets. Very frustrating. Will have to look at configurations of socets for MBs for future builds. Not very well designed.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your comments. Honest and constructive opinions are always welcome. We apologize for your difficulty with your Gigabyte product.

This model is part of our value line of models. Most configurations using this model will either use the onboard graphics or as an upgrade, use single sloted graphics cards.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board for the price. Gigabyte customer support is excellent. SATA3 RAID support.

Cons: Poor instructions for setting up RAID. No SATA2 RAID so your limited to just 2 HDDs. That's why its 4 not 5 stars.

Other Thoughts: RAID is only for the two SATA3 ports. In order for you to get your RAID to function you must boot to UEFI. The only way to do this is with a windows installation disk that supports UEFI and pressing for the boot menu then select the UEFI DVD drive. Inside windows installation when you will then need to load the drivers. In order for it to work you need to load the 32bit drivers for the drive to appear in the windows installation. THAN YOU MUST select load drivers again and select the 64bit drivers otherwise windows will not install correctly. ( ignore previous instructions about 64bit drivers if you are wanting windows 32bit). I recommend going to Gigabytes website and downloading both 32 and 64 bit drivers and having then handy on a flash drive. It makes finding the correct ones much easier than browsing the install CD. This is not a Gigabyte issue, it is a marvel RAID issue which is used for the SATA3 RAID. If your Windows 7 install DVD does not have UEFI on it their are instructions online on how to create one using the one you have with UEFI. Just Google it.

1 out of 5 eggsraid 0

Pros: seems to work well with a single ssd.

Cons: I have been unable to setup a raid 0 array with the onboard utility. I have 2 identical 500GB HDDs and have done much research on the issue I'm having. Basically the drives show up in the bios, and raid utility correctly, but when I attempt to install windows 7 it does not show the drive as an option to install to. while trying to install the driver for the raid you get an error saying that the driver is not signed. I have downloaded the most recent driver from the website to get the same error, and it cannot be bypassed.

Other Thoughts: The bios screen looks pretty cool for what its worth.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your comments. Honest and constructive opinions are always welcome. We apologize for your difficulty with your Gigabyte product.

This model supports RAID on the GSATA ports. Configuring RAID as your boot drive, you will need to download the Marvell preinstall driver. Use the F6 command during your Windows7 setup to install the driver before the Windows setup will see your RAID array.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Purchased two of these to pair with i3-2120s for budget gaming machines. They've been solid, no issues.

Windows 8 recognized and installed drivers for all the onboard components. (SATA6, USB3, Audio, and Network)

Cons: A full size video card will obstruct some of the SATA3 ports.
