A derivative of GIGABYTE's highly acclaimed 3x USB Power feature, On/Off Charge enables devices to draw more current from GIGABYTE motherboard USB ports than standard USB ports allow, so that charging from your PC can be as fast as with a charger. (*Due to certain mobile phone limitations, users may need to connect the mobile phone to their PC before the PC enters S4/S5 mode to enable a quick charge from non On/Off Charge USB ports. Charging results may vary by model. Support of the 3X USB power design may vary by model.)

1 out of 5 eggsRandom resets

Pros: Good price

Cons: Randomly resets, with no rhyme or reason. Issue popped up when I upgraded to this motherboard paired with an i5-3350p CPU.

The resets are random and do not relate to the CPU load or temperature. This problem is very reminiscent to one I had years ago involving a motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Not every board can be perfect, mistakes happen. It's just a bummer to have to return it and get a new one, which ill be doing later this week, ill leave another comment relating to the new board for any prospective buyers. I'm sure I just got unlucky

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your comments. We apologize for your difficulty with your GIGABYTE product. Please contact us at newegg-support@gigabyteusa.com with the case number 107142 in the e-mail subject line. We will provide personalized service and analysis to help solve your issue ASAP. If the matter is urgent, please send us your contact number, and we will contact you.

1. Be sure to have the latest motherboard Bios to support the CPU.

2. Check the CPU temperature in the Bios to make sure it's under the CPU specification, normally it should be around 45-50C.

3. Inspect the CPU and/or CPU socket to for bent or broken pins.

4. If the machine is overclocked, undo the overclock to verify whether the lockup or freeze still occurs.

5. Test each memory modules, one at a time to ensure each memory stick can function properly.

6. If there's add-on card(s), remove it/them from the board to eliminate hardware compatibility.

7. Check the Bios version to ensure it's the latest Bios. Backup all your data before trying to update the Bios.

9. Check for loose power cable/data cable on the storage devices such as hard disk drives, SSD drives, external USB drive, USB thumb drive from the PC.

10. If you have a spare drive available for testing, disconnect the current drive and perform a new /clean windows installation along with the required drivers to rule out software related possibility.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Little Board

Pros: Works and at a good price.

Cons: Not many extras, but that's reflected in the price.

Other Thoughts: Simple board for a simple PC setup. I've built about 5 systems with this mobo and haven't had any issues.

3 out of 5 eggsNice board, although RMA headaches

Pros: I bought two of these at the same time for system builds. Everything about this board is pretty nice, and the layout is easy to work with.
It had the specs I needed and the price was pretty good. I am familiar with the Gigabyte BIOS from my other builds, so this was a good choice for me

Cons: Of the two system builds, one of the boards starting flaking out and would shutdown or not boot all the time. The other board is fine and still running good.
So, that's why 3-eggs for this review.

However, I am stuck in RMA no-mans-land with Gigabyte. Because it was 31-days since my Newegg purchase, my only option was to send the board directly back to Gigabyte. That was 10-days ago, and I still haven't received confirmation that they have the board, or are testing it for repair/replacement.

Reading some of the forums, and now I see that Gigabyte is very slow with these types of things, so I guess I just hang for several weeks until they get to my box. Just bad luck with the board going bad a few weeks after purchase, but I wish Gigabyte could move things along more quickly

Other Thoughts: If you're building systems and need fast replacement service, probably want to pick another brand of board.

4 out of 5 eggsinexpensive, but covers the bases

Pros: great price, especially when rebates are offered. I used this to build a cheap PC using a recycled case. tested on my open bench rig using Ubuntu 13.10, worked perfectly. Installed in recycled case, using the most basic parts from newegg. installed Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit, and it is ready. I like the blue color scheme.

Cons: only 3gbps capable on data ports, but for the price, and where it will be used (kids') not really a problem.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs really well for a basic computer use such as typing word docs or basic youtube & internet browsing\. Dropped a basic Intel Dual core Processor in it. You can compare to the cheapest computer at Wolly world. Someone would think your running at least maybe an I5 in it. I have 4 gigs of RAM it. Runs really great for a person that has basic computer use or skills

Cons: None really. but for multiple monitor usage you would have to order addition USB adapter

Other Thoughts: I deployed this computer at an office where I'm pretty much their IT support. it hasn't had any complaints about the computer. Which this was an upgrade from their computer from like late 90's - early 2000's

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad, but has limitations

Pros: inexpensive board, good for home office use if you don't need bells and whistles or the latest tech. Dropped in an Ivy Bridge CPU and had no problems, didn't need to flash the BIOS or anything like that.

Cons: No USB 3 or 6gb SATA, also no digital video out. The SATA and USB I can live with, but a DVI port would have been nice. I suppose they had to leave out a bunch of stuff to maintain this price point, so it's fair game I guess.

Other Thoughts: Despite the missing features, this still has everything I needed for a home office system. Never gone wrong with Gigabyte boards, they've always been reliable
