5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Great CPU support, 8, SATA 3 ports

Cons: None, yet

Other Thoughts: Got this board after receiving a DOA MSI A78M-E35 V2. Selected because it was a good price for 8 SATA 3 ports and it supported the AMD A10 7850K CPU right out of the box. So far, no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 weeks, dissappointed

Pros: low cost

Cons: died after 3 weeks of light use

Other Thoughts: Had win 7 on it, upgraded to win 10 for free and after a week on win 10 it died, now goes straight to UEFI dual boot screen, won't even boot into bios. First gigabyte MB and it doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth. Already out of the return period from new egg so I'm pretty far up a creek at this point.

1 out of 5 eggsNEVER AGAIN JUNK. Failed and long RMA Still bad.

Pros: Was Ok when it worked.

Cons: This mobo went out just after a week of usage, not sure why I could never get a hold of them on the phone so I filed an RMA. I sent it to them it took a month and 7 days to get it back saying it has been repaired it lasted just 10 min and it failed again. I checked all other parts and even installed another mobo into the case and it worked fine.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another Gigabyte board as long as I live a total waste of time and BAD customer service. Not once did they respond to any of my 3 emails or 2 voice mails left.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for home server

Pros: - Plenty of SATA ports
- USB 3.0 for chassis as well as rear I/O
- Easy color to match any color scheme
- Good price for what you are getting.
- Works well with Windows 10 Pro
- Had no issues with compatibility or bios
- Works very well with the A10-7850k

Cons: If I had to pick a con for this board I'd say it needs at least 2 more fan headers.

Other Thoughts: I haven't done any overclocking on this board so I can't really say whether its good at that function but I am using it as a home server and I can say that it does the job perfectly and had no issues setting up the raid feature for the hard drives. Overall I can say that I would recommend this product to others as a good buy.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA - maybe not, try this. EDIT - And maybe so, I wrote too soon.

Pros: 4 add-in card slots including legacy PCI
8 SATA ports compared to Asus 6

Cons: How about even more past and future proofness - an IDE connector and a DisplayPort?

Other Thoughts: I was just about to RMA this as DOA, but:
I set up a quick bootup test with 1 memory stick in memory slot #1-->nothing. Checked PSU, CPU, memory - all working. Just before packing it up, I tried once more using slot #4-->A-OK. More tests: one memory stick in slot #1 is the only configuration which does not work, and gives apparent DOA.

Slots are numbered 4-3-2-1, 4 closest to CPU, 1 closest to the edge. For dual channel 4+2 are "channel A", and 3+1 are "channel B". So it seems like they are numbered counter-intuitive, and 4 is really #1.

So FYI if you think you got a DOA board (and for Gigabyte support as well, the high percentage of seeming DOAs is bad for your reputation).

Next time I turned it on: same problem as many others..fans spin, ethernet blinks, no video. No help from any troubleshooting.. adding, subtracting, substituting components PSU CPU memory, not even a beep code if no memory.
Too bad I ordered a second one based on thinking I had "solved" the problem. That one - no video ever.

5 out of 5 eggsNice upgrade

Pros: Easy to install
Alot of features for a mATX board
3.0 x16 + 2.0 x16 slots
OC availability

Cons: Native PCI support not needed could of used another PCIe

Other Thoughts: Was my first Motherboard upgrade from a shoddy Pre built hp, had the pc bought in 08 and kept buying parts for it, started with a Sapph hd 4670 512 mb then to a 5570 1gb, after that got the hd 6670 by xfx then slowly started to upgrade from there when i got the motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsGood deal, really ought to work

Pros: -The specs look great on paper.
-The price is right
-Trusted brand

Cons: Mine was basically DOA, I of course didn't realize it was the MOBO giving me problems until after the return period ended (my own fault). It sort-of worked for a long time, but It wouldn't post when I had more than one stick of ram in at a time (so no dual channel). I finally tried different ram, I tried different slots, the RAM was definitely not the problem. Realizing the MOBO was the culprit, I updated the bios. Now it simply won't post.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, the price is still right, so I'm actually going to buy the same model to replace it. Crossing my fingers.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst time build -Very pleased!

Pros: - Easy to read instruction manual. Well illustrated
- The board itself is very clearly marked.
- Plenty of possibilities to upgrade CPU, memory, add-ons and storage.
- I love the rear port offerings. 4 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0 and all manner of video output.

Cons: - None that I can identify so far, but I have only been using the new machine for a few days. So far so good...

Other Thoughts: Wanted to take advantage of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer with my old HP, but discovered that the CPU was not supported. So I decided that this was the time to scratch one off my bucket list and build my own. This was my first computer build and I was a bit anxious about everything going OK. I had gone to school to learn computers, but it was about 13 years ago. To my extreme relief this motherboard came with very clear and readable instructions and all of my training came back to me quickly. The build took just a weekend, The motherboard was purchased in a package with APU and memory and it all works better than I had hoped. More than twice the performance rating of the old machine. I installed Windows 7 and the upgrade to Windows 10 took less than 30 minutes...

I would definitely recommend this board to others.
