4 out of 5 eggsLow Cost...Sata II...Low Cost....

Pros: Low cost
Fairly decent looking
Can take some abuse

Cons: SATA II

No Heatsinks on voltage regulators, it gets HOT
PCI SLOT PLACEMENT

Other Thoughts: So you might be wondering what's going on with the Con's section? I'll get to that in a minute.

Low Cost...Low Cost....That's what I keep saying to myself, this is a low-cost motherboard, you can't have it all. SATA II is super slow now that new hard drives are getting faster transfer rates, but it wasn't very expensive. But the downsides constantly remind you (if you're a computer enthusiast) that you purchased a low cost motherboard.

Additionally, the PCI Slot Placement is horrible (I'm so sorry for calling it that, but it's the truth) If you're going to place a PCI-express X16 slot where it won't block any slot items, place it at the bottom! Where do I put my PCI e X1 card?

Lastly, the lack of voltage regulator heatsink(s) really hurt since the board does get a bit toasty.

Overall, it's a good low-cost board, it's reliable and yes, I complain a bit too much, but all of that was enough to drop it down an egg on my review. Fix those problems and It'd be a 6 egg board.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Little Board!

Pros: Nice unit. Paired it with an A10 5800K APU and 8 gb of RAM and I ended up with a really nice computer at an economy price. Yesss! AMD seems to give a lot more bang for the buck than those other folks. IMHO, of course!

Cons: Wish it supported USB 3.0 out-of-the-box, but for the price I'm not complaining!

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 3 months

Pros: Low price

Cons: Realtek Lan, SATA II ports

Other Thoughts: I bought this as part of a combo deal and the board died after 3 months. So, I submitted a warranty claim to Gigabyte. It's now been 3 days and I am still waiting for approval. Bad board, worse customer service from Gigabyte. Stay away, there are similarly priced boards with better specs.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Totally Fine

Pros: Well all the specs are above so if you want to know that just look up there. Anyway, this is a great board, I think I got it for about 45 dollars and it's a steal. Really worth it.

Cons: Maybe an extra sata connector?

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap

Cons: First board I got DOA, waiting for newegg to send me a second one.

Other Thoughts: New board came in today, will set up and hope it's not DOA as well

For no POST/display issue, please check the following:

1. Be sure the CPU is supported by this motherboard, for CPU support list please go to the GIGABYTE website.

2. Check memory requirement and memory installation, be sure the memory is/are seated properly. You may test the board with a single stick to rule a single bad stick of memory.

3. Be sure the ATX 24-Pin and ATX 12V 4 or 8-Pin are plugged in firmly into the board.

4. Check for visible bent or broken pin(s) in the CPU itself (AMD CPU).

5. If you have an add-on video card installed, please check if the card requires additional powers 4, 6, or 8 Pin PCIE power.

6. Test the board on a non-conductive surface or test bench to rule out the grounding possibility.

7. Check monitor for video input selection, VGA, DVI, or HDMI.

8. Avoid using any video adapter or KVM switch.

9. Test with different video cable.

10. Clear the CMOS by taking out the CMOS battery from the battery socket, leave it out for 5 minutes and place it back after that (positive side faces up).

3 out of 5 eggsBad Luck

Pros: Gigabyte! Always my #1 choice

Cons: had 2 DOA.

Other Thoughts: Still a big fan of gigabyte. They have always been my #1 choice for MB. Recently got two DOA of the same board.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far So good

Pros: NOT DOA! Always a good sign, Can't do much do to not having memory to test it out, but it does receive power!

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: This along with an A4-4000 are going into a budget update for a customer of mine, his older ACER tower is just to slow and underpowered for even running MINECRAFT

GIGABYTE GA-F2A55M-DS2

AMD A4-4000 3.2Ghz Dual core

No memory yet (Thanks UPS for your poor handling)

Cooler Master 460w PSU

ATI Radeon HD 5450 (previous upgrade which is now slower than the onboard graphics)...probably pull that one.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA From Newegg

Pros: None

Cons: This motherboard would not even POST upon arrival. I even tried a second power supply (1100W) and nothing. I purchased processor, RAM, and power supply along with this motherboard all to the specs this motherboard can handle. Just past the 30 day mark so I suppose I won't be able to RMA it. Going to have to try and contact Gigabyte. This is the first DOA board I have received from Newegg since I have been building PCs for the last 6 years.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed out of the box

Pros: None

Cons: Failed out of the box. Things were working great, had windows all installed and began installing other software, then random screen with lines/bars and after a reboot, nothing. No BIOS screen, no windows nothing.

Can't believe I have to pay to RMA this pile.
