5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard. Easy to install and setup. Lots of room to work with inside my mid tower.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had a big problem with system locking up and rebooting constantly until if figured out the problem which was a hardware/software conflict between the onboard LAN driver with my wireless WIFI card. Uninstalled the onboard LAN driver since I didn't need it anyway and removed WIFI card and replaced with a USB WIFI. Problem solved.

A little old fashioned troubleshooting goes a long way when things don't work as expected.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome board but died.

Pros: Absolutely no problems with the board for 10 months. Using an Athlon 760k with it.

Cons: I did some trouble shooting and found the power supply was bad. I ordered a new power supply and bread boarded everything just to be sure, and I still had no screen on the computer. Swapped out video cards and monitor and nothing still. Came to the conclusion the board was bad. I don't know if the power supply caused it to die or not.

Other Thoughts: Still an awesome board, I ended up ordering another one, and my computer is up and running like a top.

2 out of 5 eggsA very quiet motherboard

Pros: Arrived on time
Plenty of space
Has just about everything you'll ever need

Cons: On-board audio was DOA. Checked drivers, speakers, made sure nothing was muted, etc. Had to buy a USB audio card.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a short follow up to my review over a year ago (11-1-13)

Pros: Still a great motherboard. I have really punished this board and it has taken everything in stride. In the past year only 2 BSOD ( a windows issue not the motherboard). No issues with peripherals or any reconfirmations. This is definitely my go to motherboard for all but serious gaming.......and I mean serious not the weekend warrior kind.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Added BD drive, more storage drives, Dual monitors This thing is now officially a beast.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: I paid 54 with a MIR & coupon code. This board has everything you need including a USB 3.0 header for additional USB 3.0 ports on the case. It also has all video outputs on the board which is very practical. Modern BIOS & clear with Win 8 options. Using it for a stream box with the A4 6400 CPU and no issues so far.

Cons: 0

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed and will probably end up getting an ASUS

Pros: Great feature set. Modern BIOS, 4 DDR3 slots, supports DDR3 2133, has two PCIe x16 slots, good layout, and came shipped with a recent enough BIOS to "support" my A10-7850k.

Cons: Though it supports the A10-7850k and boots with it, the BIOS shows the CPU temp at 70 degrees Celsius when idle. I assumed it was a bad heatsink/paste install, so I took it off, applied some Arctic Silver, and ensured I was installing the stock heatsink properly. No change. I then exchanged the processor thinking it was the issue. Received the new one, but same issue. Next I exchanged the board for the same one. Sane problem. Went ahead and picked up an EVGA 600B PSU to see if that was the issue, but again same problem. Turns out, reading through the reviews, some others have the same issue.

Other Thoughts: Though the BIOS shows high temps, if I install Windows 7 and install the EasyTune 6 software, the software shows temps that I would expect. It says I idle below 30 degrees Celsius and under a stress test with Prime95 it only climbs to 58 degrees max. Also, when the BIOS says I'm at 70 (sometimes as high as 80) degrees, I can touch the heatsink and it doesn't feel that hot (just warm). I even quickly shutdown the machine and removed the heatsink and the processor doesn't even feel hot. At those temps, I would expect to have blistered my finger. In conclusion, I believe it is operating at the correct temps, but this motherboard is interpreting them incorrectly. Perhaps it was not properly calibrated by the manufacturer. I would definitely keep the board if Gigabyte would acknowledge the issue and provide a BIOS update to fix. Without an update, my peace of mind is missing, and I am unable to use the CPU Temp warnings, as they will constantly alarm. Also, I believe this causes the fan to run at full speed all the time, even though the actual temps would allow it to slow down.

2 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Good options for micro atx

Cons: LAN crapped out within a week. Had to get a wiifi card. Not worth sending it back

Other Thoughts: For anyone debating whether to get FM2 or FM3 board. Get the FM3.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty Nice Mobo

Pros: Has two PCI Express slots for crossfire/SLI, given that it is a micro ATX board, that is pretty nice

8 SATA ports, again some full ATX boards I was looking at only had 6, thats a plus for Gigabyte.

Worked out of the box

Cons: The only real complaint I have is that the CD that containing the drivers to setup on windows seems to be corrupt. I was unable to run the disk as the manual instructs to. The run.exe ont eh CD comes back with (Not a valid Win 32 Application). I am running an older CD drive so that could be the issue. However, I was able to just download the drivers off the website and install via USB so not too much an inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: I was worried after reading several DoAs on other Mobos besides this one. It seems to be a common occurence that people have to RMA a mobo because its dead on arrival. However, I suspect the users are not properly grounding and discharging their static electricity before handling the mobo and are doing a RMA to re-coop the loss.

Make sure that whatever you do, TAKE STATIC ELECTRICITY SERIOUS WHEN WORKING WITH A MOTHERBAORD. You may not think its such a big deal or forget but that could save a lot of headaches.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Work Horse

Pros: I got this as a package deal with a CPU and Ram. I had to repair my mother in laws PC and this was a great find. The AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 worked great and the build went flawless. Lots of space, the BIOS is very easy to use.

Cons: No cons but maybe put another onboard USB slot

Other Thoughts: Great for standard PC builds, nice layout

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: It came in a nice Box

Cons: This was my second build. First one worked great. Used MSI parts for just about everything. I tried to use Gigabyte on this build for my wife. The MB died within 6 months, giving no signal to the display. This was extremely disappointing. Even more disappointing was trying to contact customer service about the 3-year warranty they claim to have and being ignored. I bought this in July 2014, and have had no luck yet.
