4 out of 5 eggsawesome, great price

Pros: usb 3.0
Low cost
better then all the mobos i had in the past

Cons: not FM2+ to upgrade to the new A10 7800k APU =\ and that's why i gave it 4 eggs

Other Thoughts: for about 3 years now i had no problems with this mobo
i am now looking to upgrade to a new FM2+ socket for the
new APU's that had just came out

4 out of 5 eggs100% stable, works fine, but no 1866

Pros: 100% stable for 24 hours even CPU overclocked at full furmark + Prime 95 load with an A10-5800k @ 4.3ghz (Hyper 212+ cooler). Reasonable feature set for the money

Cons: Won't boot at 1866. Like other reviewers I can't get the board to boot at 1866 RAM speeds. I upped voltage as high as 1.65V and manually loosened all possible timings to their max value, so that isn't the issue either. RAM runs fine at 1600 and tight timings though. Increasing the base clock even 1mhz results in graphical corruption, though I don't know if the CPU or Mobo is to blame for that. Not a huge issue because the CPU is multiplier unlocked. 1 egg off for no 1866 RAM support (or at least, support for only very limited brands/models).

Other Thoughts: None

3 out of 5 eggsUnstable with 100w cpu but fixable via bios

Pros: Decent layout, cost, and available ports.

Cons: Unstable with 100w cpu under load with default bios settings. Possibly due to insufficient northbridge cooling. But it can be made stable by disabling "core performance boost" in bios.

Other Thoughts: I've spent the last couple days fighting with this thing and finally got it stable, I am posting this in the hope that it might save someone in a similar situation a bit of time.

I build a couple dozen machines a year and this is the first Gigabyte board I have had that was unstable out of the box with default settings. I could boot it up and have it idle just fine, but if I put 4 cores under load, or 2+ cores and the gpu, then it would shut itself off.

(relevant hardware)
GIGABYTE GA-F2A75M-D3H FM2 AMD A75 motherboard
AMD A8-5600K 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
SeaSonic S12II 430B 430W ATX12V V2.3/EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE PSU
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 heatsink/fan

I ruled out the psu by trying two different units. I ruled out the memory by running memtest overnight without errors or crashes. I ruled out the os by reproducing the crashes in both Win7-64 using prime95, and in Ubuntu64 using cpuburn. I also had it crash using both the F3 bios and the just released F4 bios. At this point I decided to try watching the power consumption numbers (Kill A Watt) and temp/fan readings.

With default bios settings the idle/load power consumption is 26w/146w at the wall. Under load the cpu/gpu temps are nominal but the "tmpin2" northbridge aka "temperature #3" in Open Hardware Monitor will rocket up from 14c to 93c in under a minute and the motherboard will shut itself off in 2-10 minutes under load every time.

I decided to check around the bios and noticed that "core performance boost" is set to auto by default. The description says it's the same as the old "Turbo Mode" and temporarily ups the cpu frequency if the power/temp numbers indicate it is safe to do so.
This setting can be found (in F4 bios) by tapping delete when the machine starts to get into bios, then:
(M.I.T.) > (Advanced Frequency Settings) > (Advanced CPU Core Features) > (Core Performance Boost): Disabled

After disabling this the machine now appears to be stable. I have run prime95 for 3 hours now and it would not make it over 10min previously. Power consumption under load went from 146w to 135w. Idle stayed at 26w. Northbridge sits at a scary 92c under load, but doesn't crash.

I don't know the exact cause of this problem but if I had to guess a couple scenarios are:
1. Gigabyte put a northbridge heatsink on that is sufficient for the 65w apu but not the 100w apu. If you look at all the other socket FM2, A75 chipset, microatx motherboards on newegg they have much larger northbridge heatsinks.
2. The "core performance boost" setting ignores the northbridge temp when ramping up the cpu, but the emergency thermal shutoff mechanism pays attention to it.

Hope this helps.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: All the latest stuff, supports AMD APUs!

Cons: Only one HDMI, one DVI, and on DSUB. While it claims multi-monitor support, each one has to be connected with a different mechanism. This is silly!

Other Thoughts: It should just come with 3 HDMI ports if they want to claim triple-monitor support.

4 out of 5 eggsHow to fix memory problem

Pros: Good board does the job.

Cons: none yet.

Other Thoughts: For those having memory speed issues its easy to fix. Directions: Go to bios select memory settings you need to change the profile to profile1 save and restart. my memory was at 1333 but after I changed it my memory ran at its max speed 1600. Hope this helps. :)

1 out of 5 eggsAn otherwise good board plagued by RAM issues

Pros: Pretty much everything, but the RAM issues outweigh the pros.

Cons: I've had the same issue that other reviewers have mentioned - this board won't POST if your RAM is clocked past 1600MHz. Although the board claims to support RAM at 1866MHz, it doesn't in my experience. I've used the same RAM + CPU in another system with a different motherboard and they run just fine at 1866MHz. The fact that several other reviewers have mentioned this same issue just solidifies my belief that this board is the problem.

I'm running the latest (F3) BIOS and I'm really hoping Gigabyte can either fix this with a BIOS update or provide a replacement board that can run my RAM at 1866MHz.

5 out of 5 eggsan update to my previous post

Pros: after playing with a couple of sets of g skill sniper memory ( one set 16gb of ddr1866 and the other 8gb ddr2133) i finally figured how to set the BIOS correctly for the memory. What I had to do was set it to profile 1 in the bios and then it read the memory correctly in both cases. I had never had to use profile in setting up memory in bios before so that was causing me to not get the correct timings. Since doing this both boards read all my 1866 and 2133 correctly. Also if you read the gigabyte web site they write in their memory compatiblilty section that for 2133 and above to only use 1 stick in A and 1 stick B DO NOT fill all 4 memory slots for the higher speed ddr3. Nice board really happy with them.

Cons: not clear on how to use higher speed memory in the board maybe the manual could be better there.

Other Thoughts: systems are rock solid and very quick in all my work.
