4 out of 5 eggsnot your average mobo

Pros: fit the mini atx case for my wife's HP. Looks good and has USB 3 ports in the back.

Cons: No EUFI, driver would not install for the onboard LAN in Windows Vista which made this upgrade a fresh install of Win 7 (not really a con per say)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Budget Motherboard

Pros: I needed a budget Micro ATX AM3+ motherboard for my AMD FX-8350 and this was perfect. I'm a casual gamer, so I did not need anything enthusiast-level. My main components with this motherboard include: AMD FX-8350, MSI AMD Radeon 7790, one Crucial SSD (with AHCI enabled), and one Samsung HDD. I'm also running on Windows 8.1. I have had no problems with the software or hardware and everything seems to place nicely together. The BIOS is well-designed and has fairly advanced options; the main ones I tinkered with were to enable AHCI, adjust fan control, and adjust CPU power save. For those who will not be using a separate or third-party audio device, the onboard one is adequate. You don't get an equalizer like you do for Realtek devices, but the audio quality is good and handles various combinations of audio peripherals pretty well.

- good compatibility
- good BIOS
- adequate audio device & driver

Cons: I must say that you should only install the basic software needed to operate the motherboard: BIOS, audio, and LAN. I encountered boot problems when using the overclock software and their other installable "feature" applications are known to misbehave. Of course, always download the latest drivers from the manufacturer website.

- poor management and overclock software

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality motherboard

Pros: 6 SATA ports for future expansion and crazy fast USB 3.0. Surprised to find this board has a 20 pin internal USB 3.0 header so there are actually (4) USB 3.0 ports (not just 2 like Newegg says) - it is black so easy to miss. Haven't tried it yet. First time I've used this mobo - was very pleased with ease of build from installing board to loading drivers for Win7 64bit - went very smoothly. IMO, Gigabyte and Asus have the highest quality motherboards out there - this one is even better than the last Asus I used at this price point.

Cons: Only one case fan header and it is on the front edge of the board - need a very long wire or extension to reach rear case fan. Would have been nice to have the faster SATAIII interface, but this is known when buying this board.

Other Thoughts: I got the newer version of the board - some pictures show a board with blue CPU bracket and slots - mine is all black and looks great. I used a low power Athlon II 250e CPU with lower TDP and slower bus speeds than the new FX CPUs - so I'm seeing very low temps.

5 out of 5 eggsThank you Gigabyte! Great board!

Pros: Bought a cheapo ASROCK board to save money and none of the SATA ports worked. Got rid of it and ordered the Gigabyte. Works perfectly right out of the box. Also feels like its got much better construction and overall layout is much better. USB 3.0 header is a big plus and the board overclocks really nice. This is probably one of the absolute best budget boards out there. Running a 6 core AMD FX CPU @ 4.7GHZ no problems.

Cons: Wish it had more fan headers and SATA 3.0

Other Thoughts: Can't beat it in this price range. Don't buy ASROCK to save a couple bucks. Pay a few extra dollars and get a Gigabyte or ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap Mobo for AM3+, FX compatible

Pros: Works like a beast with the AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera I also bought. Simple, bare bones, basic BIOS, but has good documentation and none of the ports felt too cheap.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsstable, but gpu driver issues in 8.1

Pros: First of all, I'm a certified IT consultant, with many degrees and certs under my belt, so tech knowledge really actually is at a 5.

Now, I did get the latest revision of the board (6.0) and it did ship with the latest bios. Recognized the fx8320 and single 8gb-1866 dimm right away, something I was actually worried about.

Power delivery seems solid, after a 48 hour burn with the fx8320 at stock I saw no errors and mobo temps stayed below 70c.

Quite a bit of sata, more than enough for my client's needs.

Yes, it *has* an iGPU, and it can handle the normal win8 animations just fine, but read the cons.

Cons: GPU:
There is no driver for the mobility radeon hd 3000 for windows 8/8.1. Even telling device manager to go out and try to find one from windows update (usually works) doesn't work, just gives you the generic driver. Not a gigabyte, but amd problem, but still, minus 1 star.
... However. You can still install one. Remember that all a driver is in windows is an inf file.
Easy way: Insert the driver dvd, browse to the vga folder, find the catalyst install manager, right-click, properties, compatibility, run in windows 7 mode.
It will go about half way through the install, just enough to get the inf file where it needs to go, and somewhat install the catalyst control center (many features will refuse to install, including audio over hdmi)
Then there you have it, you can now run at resolutions up to 4k, not that I recommend it.

Fans:
Only two, system and cpu, but the case I got for my client has a fan controller, no worries there.

Sata:
Only sata 2, but unless you are doing insane stuff with your ssd's you should not need to worry, the ssd (240g samsung 850evo) in the system is still very fast, 3 second boot, benchmarked at 280MB/s, 74k 4k random iops.

Other Thoughts: The machine is serving as a file/print server, as well as a photoshop/illustrator/lightroom workstation for a small printing company I support, and so far, it's done its job well, with the exception of the gpu hiccup.

System specs: fx-8320 at stock, cooler master hyper 212 evo, single 8gb gskill 1866 dimm, 240g samsung 850 evo, 3x 2tb wd red in software raid 5 (windows storage spaces), Corsair 430m modular psu, Corsair Carbide 330r, dual 2560x1600 ips asus monitors (one dvi, one hdmi).

1 out of 5 eggsAfter 5mo NO Post

Pros: Worked great for 5 months

Cons: No Post after 5 months

Other Thoughts: Bought in combo with AMD FX-4300 Vishera Quad Core 3.9GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD4300WMHKBOX . Will not post. Fans start. CD-Rom tries to work, Hard drive makes some efforts but no post and no video from onboard video or with added video card. Just happened after almost 6 months of use.
