1 out of 5 eggsThe Day After

Pros: It seemed to work initially.

Cons: The day after I finished the build I started getting seemingly random shut downs and reboots. I went into the system logs and found this:
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Component: AMD Northbridge
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: HyperTransport Watchdog Timeout Error
Processor ID: 0
I cant even say that I know what it means, but the Northbridge is the Motherboard. I tried to contact Gigabyte support, but they never got back to me. I'm probably going to just return it and try to get something else. It was a part of a DIY combo, so I may not be able to.

1 out of 5 eggsNecessary Rant - Another Gygabyte rebate Ripoff!! X2! on this same board! 100% ripoff! no rebates paid! 0% honored!!

Pros: These motherboards are normally combo incentives, first for us, a AMD 8370E, and now for an AMD8320E. After we detailed our experience with a little corporate ethics advise, for pepper, we received a weak response from the Gygabyte rep who has to mitigate the damage from their Rebate practices, and said call me. However, for $10, we prefer to let every potential kid who might buy their products know, that IF they accept as part of their decision to buy, a promise to pay from Gigabyte, then they should just consider it GONE! and the pain in the stomach area that goes with being cheated, as a no charge extra bonus!

Cons: This is the second time, in two GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3's this has happened, so their record is 100% cheating kids, and other slightly less defenseless buyers, out of their money, and none of honoring promises, they have made to their consumers. New Corporate Advice - Lose the rebates! Sorry, those are the numbers, and actually they are my favorite Motherboard manufacturer on value, if not on total quality, and also the best instance of Customer Service with a repair problem under warranty was with Gigabyte, probably a different Vice President, who studied under State Farm policies. SO, I wish there were someway to be kind with Customer Service department, while bringing this absolute criminal activity to everyone's attention, but it must be dealt with separately. In this case, 10 minutes ago, after waiting for three weeks to be told again, and this time carefully following every rule, because the second time shame on us. we sent them the cutting from the box (which destroys resale) and also eliminates the serial number from the box, so you don't have two copies in case one falls off or gets wet from Cool-It water cooling units leaking, in a 140F, high air flow environment. So, we sent them everything, 20 days ahead of the deadline, and same result. however this time they wrote back another pasted standard denial: Original Model Name & Serial Number Label cut from Retail Box. I know that we cut up our box and sent it to them, staples and taped into the little box, on the form, and this is the return!! ERGO-we conclude - CROOKS. There is no other explanation, because,we are not upset, and exaggerating, (mostly since this is not our first rebate-rodeo) Mostly, because, we KNOW their ways, from the first time this occurred, and SO have done every little detail they asked, and they as Corporate policy, have denied the legally binding "public offer" that they made to sell this merchandise, of course putting into place 5 what are called in the MBA School books (mostly between the lines), but more and more openly as people they think are becoming more desensitized to blatant CORPORATE behaviors, IMPEDIMENTS TO ACTION WHICH CREATE SEGMENTED DEMAND AFTER POINT OF SALE -where corporate criminal culture is required if you want to make $1M+, as a department level head, in any service provider or consumer products company.Well, wrong is wrong, sorry again, I wish there were better things to say, however, these class-less practices overshadow every technical, customer service or advantage that any product or service could possess! And, let's see, to do the math, let's see if you were to cheat every 5th person living in the US, let's just say for round numbers, out of $15 every two years, and Gigabyte has 1/5th of the motherboard market, then you have 20,000,000 X $15 = $300,000,000-Now makes perfect economic sense, where only 0.01% of white collar criminals are punished. Hmmm-Conclusion, buy nothing EVER with a rebate, ...and enjoy the rest of your day. QED

Other Thoughts: Also positive - Thank you Newegg, we and many more rely on this information,to make informed electronics consumer choices, so Bravo! to that Service,...where frankly, I wrote a scathing review for the first case and time this happened with the same board-where it was not honored since it was purchased at Black Friday, and then Gigabyte or the vulture culture firms that they hire to milk, their customers, after the sale, put a 10 day limit, however, it was timed so that with the Sundays, you really only had 5 days. Who would have THUNK they would do that, however, deception is money and we dropped off on the Saturday, Gee we work!! sorry-but they did not honor their promise to pay, if we just followed their seemingly-petty, 5 requirements??! Why, well again in the text books, it is called 'Impediments to Action", and the idea is that if you make it inconvenient, complicated, or just a seemingly waste of good time, then up to 92% of people you promised a $10 to $20 Rebate to, will just go away. Apparently, Gigabyte's contract rebate servicing contract firm's new VP, has determined that if you just lie, then the other 8%, also go away. The first case, as I said is UN-ethical, the second case is criminal.

2 out of 5 eggsNIC did not work.

Pros: Relatively cheap.

Cons: NIC did not work, installed from the included disk and NIC showed an error in Device manager. doing some research it turns out it's just dead. tried downloading new drivers (after buying a PCI NIC) would still not work. the NIC diagnostic tool was worthless and did not provide any information.

Other Thoughts: It's a cheap MoBo that supports DDR3 and AM3+ I think I got bad luck with the dead NIC but it still sucks. 2 eggs because everything else works and it's cheap.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't buy this for the onboard GFX

Pros: Reasonably priced. Memory settings are pretty flexible. I was able to use some weird Mushkin modules I had on hand even though they required a much higher than normal voltage. (For some reason they are not detected properly by SPD) With the latest BIOS update, it also supports a good range of AM3/AM3+ processors. 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back and a USB 3.0 header for a front panel if you need it. It also has headers for a 9 pin serial (COM) port and a Parallel port for folks who have older peripherals that they'd like to connect.

Cons: The onboard video is not usable with Windows Media Center. Gigabyte states on their product page that this boars supports HDCP, and maybe it does under some circumstances... However I ran into some problems here.
I got this board to replace the dead motherboard in my HTPC. Under Windows 7, Media Center wouldn't allow playback of premium channels (DRM) and under Windows 8 (I did a fresh install) I couldn't even get the video to qualify during media center setup. The onboard video (AMD Radeon HD 3000) is so ancient that AMD ended support for this chip two years ago, and to get the driver working under Windows 8.1 I had to force it to install in Device Manager. I ended up disabling the onboard video and spending another $30 for a cheap 1-slot nVida card with passive cooling just so I could get my HTPC functional again.

Other Thoughts: If you just want a cheap system to get some extra life out of some old memory or CPU this will be fine. Works just fine with Linux and Windows 7, and with a force install of the video driver under Window 8.1 it's even OK for basic stuff like web browsing or office productivity, but if you want to do any kind of video playback or use as an HTPC, you'll need to find a decent low-profile 1-slot video card and just disable the onboard video.

1 out of 5 eggsSystem randomly reboots when used in conjunction with a Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC

Pros: Good budget mobo with most GPUs.

Cons: When this specific motherboard is used with the Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC (100362-3L), your system will randomly reboot with no BSOD.

If you do some searching on specific tech forums, you will see that many other individuals who have purchased the exact same GPU/mobo pair are suffering from the exact same problem.

It doesn't matter if you're writing something on Word, watching Netflix, or gaming on all ultra settings on BF4, your system will reboot at random intervals.

I have gone a full week without a random reboot, and then had four reboots in one day. It is by far the most aggravating issue I've ever experienced in my experience with building PCs.

3 out of 5 eggsDO NOT USE ON 125W FX CHIPS!!!

Pros: Great price... Great board... JUST NOT FOR HIGH WATTAGE FX CHIPS!!!

Cons: VRM burned up under heavy load on my FX-8350... Going through RMA process as of right now...

Other Thoughts: Through research, I found out that the VRM used on this board hasn't been changed from the one that they used to support the older AM3 chips... That being said, the VRM isn't really specified to support the FX-8350 or any of the other 125W chips AMD puts out... If you're looking for a board, I'd get one with an 8 + 2 VRM, instead of this 4+1 one...

4 out of 5 eggsPEG! Remember Peg...

Pros: Inexpensive
USB 3.0

Cons: Onboard video is a problem. Read other reivews. essentailly it caudes Windows 7 to crash repeatedly due to some driver incompatibilities since the board is older and the AMD video is no longer supported. However, after coming close to pulling the board for RMA i read online that i should use another card (I have an HD6450) and try setting the BIOS to PEG. I did and it worked! whew... so for those of you with the challange, try PEG.
