3 out of 5 eggsKinda surprised an 80 dollar board came with only 2 sata cables.

Pros: not sure yet but I will guess it will work fine. Asus is my normal go to for custom builds. I have had no problems with GIGABYTE,

Cons: For 80 buck it should have came with a few usb headers. I have purchased lower end board that came with at least one 2.0 or 3.0 header cable. You only get 3 eggs for that GIGABYTE for cheaping out on the extras.

Other Thoughts: I would go with asus as they always throw in some extras with a board in this price range.

3 out of 5 eggsIts fine, i guess.

Pros: -Overclocks ok

Cons: -Simply wont boot with 4x4gb@1866mhz of the exact same stick of ram, boot fine with two sticks@1866mhz, or 4 at 1600mhz.
-When i boot, it starts and does nothing for like 5 seconds, then stops for a few seconds, then boots.

Other Thoughts: Could use more features.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

Pros: It's a motherboard and it works...kinda

Cons: Third board now. Same problems. DIMM slots go bad and PCIe x16 lane stoped working on all three boards after a couple months of use.
Spend $20 more and get an MSI board.

1 out of 5 eggsGigabyte is a poor brand

Pros: None

Cons: Buy if you want constant reboots and zero overclocking

Other Thoughts: I had a lot of Gigabyte products over the years, but this is the worst. My computer currently often fails to wake from sleep or just randomly reboots. After a lot of troubleshooting, I've traced the issue to the board itself by testing another board. Hopefully Gigabyte can stand behind their warranty.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Worked for a whole year with minimal issues

Cons: Used this on my first build- definitely going to read the reviews closer next time, since it died exactly a year from the date I built the computer. Worked okay up til then, but things froze a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the best AMD boards out there currently

Pros: every thing works great and can handle all of the current top AMD AM3+ that are top bang for your buck.
All Debian, SuSE, and most Red Hat linux distros. 64 and 32 bit

Cons: the only thing you have to change is enabling iommu in bios setting

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good AMD mother board

1 out of 5 eggsPoorly made

Pros: It wasn't dead.

Cons: While installing the motherboard in the case I went to push in the sata connectors from my hard drive and disk drive the the ports on the mobo just fell off leaving exposed pins. Hardly any force was used and now I have 2 useless ports.

Other Thoughts: I usually use nothing but Gigabyte motherboards but this is the second one I've had an issue with.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: I wouldn't know, it won't start.

Cons: It arrived DOA.

Other Thoughts: Arrived DOA. This is incredibly frustrating as my CPU also arrived DOA, so after waiting a week for that replacement I'll now have to wait another week as well as pay for shipping again. I suppose my frustration really comes from reading other reviews and seeing that it's common for this motherboard to arrive DOA.
