5 out of 5 eggsA great board with some nice features

Pros: I got this board to replace a faulty MSI 870A, and it's been wonderful so far. Handles my Phenom II x6 1090T and two Radeon HD 7870s like a pro, with plenty of space for a handful of add-on cards, a serial adapter, front USB2 and USB3, and a UEFI that lets you mess with practically everything.

Cons: The UEFI is a bit sluggish where the mouse is concerned, but that's a common trait among UEFI's I've noticed. It also seems a little more restrictive on overclocking, keeping me at an 18x multiplier instead of the 18.5 I had before, but what's a hundred mhz when you've got an improved bus and northbridge?

Other Thoughts: It may not be the motherboard's fault, but I've noticed that installing the AMD SATA controller makes SeaTools for Windows lock up and die a horrible death, so stick with the generic controller drivers if you use Seagate hard drives.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: awesome board, has what i need, went from an older gen gigabyte mobo, just slapped the new one in, installed the drivers, no need for a reinstall, got lucky there

Cons: no matter what i do, i cant get it to output 5.1, only pcm, ran thru my toslink fiber optic cable. when i test audio it will send a 5.1 signal which i hear on all my speakers, but cant configure it to use 5.1. had to buy a separate sound card, still waiting for it to arrive. really upset

1 out of 5 eggsBuy another motherboard

Pros: none

Cons: Only lasted 1 month before it started to freeze and lockup. Tried xp, win7 and win8, all would lock up and freeze.
Replaced it with an asus motherboard and all the issues gone. Spend the extra money and get a mid level motherboard, this board is an entry level motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent board

Pros: excellent board layout. fit perfectly into my super tower case and all the headers were in the perfect spot for my cables. Processor and heatsink went in perfectly over my Corsair Vengance RAM. no problems out of this board at all. Thanks again Gigabyte for knocking it out of the park again.

Cons: back i/o plate was a little bent in the box...other than that (though it was a really easy fix) no other cons. possibly could have had a hot plate for keeping my coffee warm.

1 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Motherboard absolute garbage

Pros: Absolutely none, and I'll describe why in the cons

Cons: I was sold a faulty Motherboard, and when I called Gigabyte out on it they said "Oh We check EVERYTHING, which apparently is a lie, because they did NOT check it... The Motherboard gave 1/2 power to the Processor, and nothing would boot up even though there was power connected to it. I had called them up and they "Told me" that it was checked, when it obviously wasn't. I'll give them a second chance to impress me, but so far, they're 0-1

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

Pros: It's cheap

Cons: When I first read the reviews on this item I didn't believe what the people were saying; however, after owning one myself I know acknowledge that this item has some really poor quality control.

This item broke within 5 months of me purchasing the item with the weirdest error. First, your games and youtube vids will start crashing. Then after you turn it off, it won't turn on and you have to retry turning it on. Later on your monitor won't have any signal at all. This is the hard part because how do you diagnose no signal? I had to purchase a new PSU (115589083), CPU (115876182), and mobo (116078371) whilst delivering parts to manufacturers for tests which took at least 2 months. I even reset BIOS and let's just say that checking every part of the computer was not a fun thing for me to do.

In addition to all this the integrated sound card is terrible. I never knew what good sound is till I purchased ASUS M5A99FX.

5 out of 5 eggs  Awesome motherboard

Pros: One one of those motherboards I have ever owned. I had had no problems with it whatsoever there's always stay at good levels without overheating. I run a AMD 8320 and it still runs awesome.

Cons: The only thing that I have noticed about this motherboard that doesn't my GeForce graphics cards. Every time of the GeForce graphics card I had some problem but when I use AMD graphics cards I had no problem. The motherboard really like high in graphics card and that could be pricey for some people.

Other Thoughts: I can definitely recommend this for a friend to me this is a most bye I got mine when it was $94 so this is a great deal for $79
