1 out of 5 eggs2 Months old...and its dead

Pros: Ran fine for the 2 months that I had the board installed. Nothing special

Cons: Like I stated the board is only 2 months old and it quit booting up to windows. The onboard LED sensor is giving me a code of 55, which means Memory initilization process. I changed memory, tried different slots, everything with new memory, and the board will still not boot up. I the RAM i used works fine in other rigs so I know the RAM is fine. I would really like something done about this as the board is only 2 months old (I received the board slighty after 10/01/2015). I am just looking for refund or some kind of credit. I will be going with another motherboard brand as I am not satisfied with performance of this board.

5 out of 5 eggsGA-F2A88X-UP4

Pros: I have had this board up and running for well over a year now. It dual boots Win XP (only for some old prog's) and Ubuntu 14.04LTS. It is flawless in both. It has run pretty much 24 -7 since being built. A good solid stable board IMHO. Does dual monitors no trouble. A good board for an inexpensive everyday work horse for home or business.

Cons: None known at this time.

Other Thoughts: I do not have an AMD APU installed. I have an Nvidia GeForce 630GT installed.

2 out of 5 eggsIt has nice looks..but not much substance

Pros: It looks good and is a quality build.

Cons: Not windows 10 ready and no drivers and utilities work.The 7870k I installed said it worked with the latest bios but ran incredibly hot and was throttled..poor bios..it's weak.ram was not stable besides 1600 MHz.Avoid.

2 out of 5 eggsSecond board, even more problems

Pros: - Gets one egg for looking pretty and having a nice VRM section.

Cons: - Too many component failures
- Awful BIOS

Other Thoughts: I've had two of these boards now, the first one failed completely after a few weeks. I was luckily within my return window and just sent it back, deciding to go with a different platform.

Now a year later I give it a chance again, and I get a bad RAM slot, intermittent USB 3.0 ports and failed onboard audio. The BIOS is typical Gigabyte, it looks nice but is missing key features like the ability to disable spread spectrum or see PCIe solid state drives that its most direct competition can do just fine. Overclocking is likewise a poor experience, I have a Crossblade Ranger as well and with the same chip (860K) that board can reach 4.8ghz with 2400mhz memory and 2200NB, the Gigabyte can't even POST at stock frequencies with 2400mhz RAM.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works, but

Pros: I successfully installed both Windows 10 Preview and Ubuntu. My previous install had a bad hard disk drive.

Cons: Currently, when booting from a DVD or Ubuntu I can't select any menu option. The computer doesn't respond - even with a wired keyboard. I wonder if it is a configuration option that I am missing. The boot menu simplify selects the default option.

Other Thoughts: If I can figure out why the boot option is not working then it will be perfect.

Newegg - please remove my previous review as it was not the motherboard, but a hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice looking

Pros: Very beautiful board.. After I painted the heat sink, best board I think I've ever seen.
The board has every feature I expected and more. Over clocked my chip very easily, and if you have a failed boot it will ask to reset your bios.

Cons: 2 cons for me, 1 was the red heatsinks, but all boards are like that now -_-
2 most people won't have this problem, but the heatsink screws are real easy to break.

Other Thoughts: After painted white, looks epic in my white NZXT h440 with rgb lighting.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't install windows :(

Pros: I think it will be a good board - if I can get the Windows to install. I installed ubuntu 14.04.o2 LTS with no problems. It needs an ethernet driver, but I know it has one as the live CD had internet when installing.

Cons: Couldn't get Win XP, or Win 7 Ultimate to install I keep getting "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD.....<garbage>". Even when I pressed a key, it wouldn't install :(

Other Thoughts: I put in a support request with http://esupport.gigabyte.com/Login and am waiting for a response.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Stable, FM2+ or FM2

Pros: Quick flawless setup, easy BIOS update, easy CMOS reset. Stable with A10-7800, A10-6700, and X4-740.

Cons: A little short on fan connectors. My FM2A85 has more. I still don't like the current fad of having horizontal SATA connectors - a chrome-plated PITA for maintenance and cable routing

Other Thoughts: This is my main Photoshop machine and it cheerfully accepted all the memory (32GB), drives (7), monitors (3) and peripherals I could throw at it, including several PCIE devices.
