5 out of 5 eggsFreeBSD box

Pros: Running FreeBSD 10.1 on ZFS, fully encrypted, booting from usb stick. So far system is working great. I've stress tested it by playing a movie, torrenting at upwards of 2mb/sec, backing up another network attached computer to this one and transferring a large file from same computer to this one, all at the same time. Was able to get cpu usage on 4 cores averaging 70-90%+ and not a single hiccup.

Has 8 sata3 ports. I'm using 7 of them and they're working great.

I like the layout of the board. I've had to connect/remove/reconnect everything 3 times now and it's so easy to do.

The bios is nice. Easy to navigate with decent explanations of everything. I don't overclock so I leave most stuff set at default. Was a piece of cake to setup the memory timings and sata controller.

Overall, I'm always satisfied with Gigabyte boards. This is my first one where I've had a few problem issues. Those could of been avoided if I spent 300+ more dollars on a server board + sata3 controllers. I can live with the cons when I get 8 sata3 ports, 3 year warranty, all the other extra features for around $60.

Cons: The onboard RealTek 8168/8111 doesn't work with FreeBSD 10.1. First MB I got would reset the Lan every 5-10 minutes. The replacement and a second board so far only do it maybe 1-2 times during a 2 hour movie streamed over Lan. When I use an old pci nic with RealTek 8169, the problem goes 99% away. More a FreeBSD issue than this MB I think (other than first RMA'd MB, that one was bad). I need to try an Intel nic.

My usb booted FreeBSD 10.1 won't boot if I have a usb keyboard attached. I have to use a PS/2 keyboard for system to work. Even with PS/2 keyboard I get an error until I enter my passphrase. This is probably because of the 3rd con below...

Gigabyte doesn't support open source operating systems.

I never realized until my first bad board that Gigabyte doesn't have US support forums. They prefer all their support to be done through email. This makes getting help extremely slow unless you make a phone call, which I don't like doing. I wish they had support forums like G.Skill does. I love G.Skill support. Because of the poor Gigabyte support, I might switch motherboard brands on next purchase, even though I love these motherboards. Customer service is one of my primary reasons to buy a product.

Other Thoughts: Using this board with an A8-7600 cpu, 16GB G.Skill 2133 memory, 6 sata3 hd's, 3 SSD's, one add-on sata3 controller. Because of the poor onboard Lan, I have to use a pci nic I had laying around. Using ZFS with encryption. Eventually this system will have 13 hard drives and 32gb memory. That will keep me happy for the next 5+ years if the board lasts that long, I hope it does.

I'm giving this board 5 stars even with the problems I've had, mainly because I believe FreeBSD was the cause of them. If you use this board with a supported OS (Windows), it'll work as good or better than the Gigabyte board in my Win7 machine.

1 out of 5 eggsBios

Pros: Nice worked for first 2 days and ok now after hiccup on third day.

Cons: 3rd day pushed power button and Bios was corrupt and started a restart loop into bios but had no menu no key board. Tried all the tricks to force Main bios to copy Backup bios and was going to RMA. but found a google entry about shorting pins on main bios as last ditch to force backup bios to restore the main bios and it worked. Now i have a board that i will alway be unsure of in the back of my mind. will not buy Gigabyte mainboards again.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly OK for the cost

Pros: Has all the key features and slots I needed.
Maybe one of the best APU boards out there.
Not expensive. Great for doing an inexpensive build or upgrade.

Cons: Maybe one of the best APU boards out there.
Bios reads incorrect CPU temps, or is that the CPU?

Other Thoughts: Plugged an A6-5400K into this mobo and all went well.

Pros: Affordable, good micro components

Cons: Dead on arrival

Other Thoughts: I am definitely going to get a new one. It appears some people get a good one, some get bad. Guess I was one of the unlucky ones.

4 out of 5 eggsNew computer build

Pros: Good price.
Easy to update BIOS for the 7870K APU.

Cons: Computer is unstable with Corsair Vengeance Pro ram at 2400 MHz, probably due to compatibility issues. (Works fine at 2133 or less)

Other Thoughts: For my first complete computer build this seems like an overall good motherboard. It works with all of the components (except the faster ram settings mentioned above).

3 out of 5 eggsDecent board

Pros: Fits nicely in my media center case. Low profile CPU heatsink / cooler fit with no complications. 32GB of RAM running smoothly.

Cons: Some sort of sound / video glitch... sound occasionally garbles static, and when playing video it seems like its struggling to output. I have tried several, SEVERAL fixes on the web to no avail.

Other Thoughts: Ubuntu Linux 15.04 installation. As stated before, Gigabyte does not natively support linux OS, so i went with AMD and some generic drivers.
