1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Looks nice. Clear printing on the board for all important connections.

Cons: Dead on Arrival. No built in display adapter, video card only. This actually matters if things go wrong.

Other Thoughts: If an item is DOA it gets 1 star. If DOA is rare then it's rating won't suffer much. Looking through the other reviews it seems that this is a shoddy product. Be prepared to return and/or deal with warranties and/or just part with your money.

1 out of 5 eggsAngry

Pros: None

Cons: I bought it as an upgrade in preparation for the new school year. Worked fine until today, where I plugged in a flash drive, and it died on me. I'm beyond angry, and in such a stressful situation now because of this.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work

Pros: None

Cons: Put all of my computer together and then tried to turn it on and then nothing happens except my front fan led's come on and then go off in a split second. There is no beeps, sound, or nothing. No display on the monitor. There is no physical damage that i can see, so it has to be a defect or something else. So i'm sending it back, if any can give some advice it would be nice of you. Thanks Gigabyte :(

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this piece of juck, look at the ratings, ALWAYS

5 out of 5 eggsHas worked without issue.

Pros: Bio's are great. Board also looks good in the case. I have not experienced any of the issues stated in the poor reviews for this board. I am running an FX 8320 with this board and i have not OC yet although it is my intention to do so in the future. So far i am very happy.

Cons: None yet

2 out of 5 eggsDOA Motherboard

Pros: Decently sturdy and has all basic ports.

Cons: Was DOA. Spent the day putting together my computer only to find out something wasn't working, tried a backup graphics card and RAM to make sure that wasnt the problem, I knew it was either my CPU (which is quite rare), or my motherboard. I ended up getting a full refund from newegg thankfully as they have fantastic customer service, and purchased another Gigabyte MoBo (990 chipset) which was much more sturdy and had more room for expansion. It was $50 more but IMO it was plenty worth it, I was wrong to cheap out on my motherboard to begin with.

Other Thoughts: I am not saying this product is bad, I just didn't get the chance to use mine so I cannot give this a good review.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy install, BIOS is easy for a noob like me to navigate, and has some fun options to play with for tweaking things ever so slightly

Cons: Not worth removing an egg but, I feel the Northbridge Chipset gets a bit to hot when installing software and copying things from a USB Drive.

Other Thoughts: So far no other major developments, I'll update if I get any of the problems I have read this Mobo can have, Hopefully I get a good bit of use from it.
