5 out of 5 eggsDecent mainboard for the price

Pros: GigaByte apparently did not try to save money on the expense of quality, wise decision, reminds me of the long gone Abit (R.I.P.).
The board is not an overclocker's dream, but it comes with sufficient OC features and I did manage to push an A10-7700K to 4.3GHz with an old budget CM Hyper TX3 and stock core voltage. More than good enough.

Cons: Placing both PWM regulated SYS_FAN connectors to the back of the board was a very poor decision, it makes it impossible to plug in fans located in the front of the case without an extension.

Other Thoughts: As someone else mentioned, the board is not regular ATX size, it is somewhat shorter. As a result, it doesn't reach the front row of mounting points, the front of the board just hangs in the air so one must be careful and use the other hand to support the circuit board from behind when the ATX power cable is connected to avoid damage. (I wonder how many of the DOA complaints might be a result of this issue...)

2 out of 5 eggsDOA???

Pros: Overall seems like a good board.

Cons: Pretty sure it is doa.

Plugged everything in, checked ram and all that stuff, No mobo lights come on on boot or video (not using a gpu right now), but fans start and I get a hard drive light on the case.

I'll edit the review if this gets fixed or I get a replacement board, I just want to get this build finished.

Other Thoughts: Accidentally wrote this review on the ga-f2a88xm board oops

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MoBo, Great Price

Pros: Incredibly durable design, perfect mid level specs

Cons: If this is even a con, board mounted power connection makes in case cable management a little difficult with bottom mounted PSU.

Other Thoughts: I got this board to run as an Network Video Recorder. Gigabyte has always been in my top 3 boards to buy, but this one seals the deal. Not only can I run this board in a dirty, potentially humid environment on a nearly constant basis, I know that it will keep on trucking. The back up BIOS and long lasting design are perfect for the person that has server application with a desktop budget. I immediately went and bought another LGA 1500 board of the same type to use as an office machine. Anymore, companies build products that are designed to fail. Good job Gigabyte for building a product that will last and offering it at a price that the EveryMan can afford!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Build - Sturdy MB

Pros: Works great! No problems detected.
Using A10-7850k, overclockable but leaving it on stock speeds.
BIOS is nice, easy to navigate.
PCIe x16 for future graphics.
USB 3.0 slots.
Awesome aesthetics.

Cons: None so far. Although I wish AMD made more dual PCIe 3.0 slot FM2+ MBs, but I digress.

Other Thoughts: Being part of my first computer build, I have to say this thing is neat. I don't have anything else to compare it with, especially since every other computer I've owned were hand-me-downs.
Here's my build:
-Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H Motherboard
-AMD A10-7850k APU
-Single HyperX Savage 8GB DDR3 2400 RAM
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler
-NZXT Source 220 case, black
-used Cooler Master 600W power supply
-used hard drives

4 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: Looks solid, heavy, lots of things to read, good price, no visible damage

Cons: Completely dead on arrival. First item i've ever gotten dead(and totally dead is a fast symptom), so i'm not too upset. Swapped a working psu, bypassed the case button, wont even get fans to work. Either it wasn't tested, or damaged in some part of the shipping process.

Other Thoughts: Assuming the second board isnt DOA and it works like advertised, id give 5 eggs, just be careful if you are on a deadline to build something. premier rma service is great though

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Good deal, especially with rebate. Liked the protective coating on the board circuitry.

Cons: Arrived dead, no video, tried with multiple monitor connections. All new parts for a new system build. Not happy.

Also, was shipped rev. 3 instead of the current 4(?).

Other Thoughts: I guess this is what you get for gambling on a board that has several DOA reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Looks good. Everything fit well, easily mounted to case, etc.

Cons: Was DOA. No POST beeps, no LED indicator, no display, despite all fans and CPU fan running fine. Reset the CMOs, and still nothing. Just bought it 2 days ago, and at this moment, will not ever buy Gigabyte motherboards again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood mobo

Pros: Well its a great working motherboard once i got it working. I had to send it back the first time cause the first one was DOA.
But it is a great looking board with a good amount of features. It has great overclocking with my H100i from corsair, not to mention its easy on the wallet.

Cons: Only con i really have is the fact that the first one was DOA. i had to wait about 2 weeks to get the new one but all in all a great board for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome

Pros: running a a8-6600k cpu using the onboard 8570d graphics
overclocked to 1066 MHz stock voltage stock cpu clock. Gskill memory F3-12800CL9D-4GBXL running at 1866 stock 1.5 voltage. upped the chipset voltage a drop. plays games great
upping the memory from 1600 to 1866 upped my minimum frame rate like 5 fps.

Cons: do not use the included disk drivers. it have the old graphics driver and it has fps issues im using 14.4 drivers and runs great

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board, great price

Pros: full atx, a88x, price, color, ect.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: great board with lots of expansion, bios is cake to overclock and overall solid design.

its just too bad intel feels the need to charge soo much for mid/high range parts, its just downright criminal. and i really do not believe an i3 can even compete with an a10 in performance.....(yes i know its quad vs dual) but i compare on price which is the most unbiased form of comparison.
