2 out of 5 eggsNot That Great

Pros: It works - Kinda. . . .
Bought this as a DIY Kit for a customer; but the lack luster performance was so bad; I was embarrassed to even give it to a paying customer.

Cons: Obvious Graphics issues, and pathetic performance when parred with the AMD A6-5400K Trinity Processor. Either this board has serious problems, or the AMD Processor is defective; I'll find out when I get time to install another CPU.

Other Thoughts: I ended up throwing this loser system in the closet and just
started over by using a Joe~Schmo Dual-Core Intel chip. At least I was able to save the 8-GB of RAM!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board, but....

Pros: It's a micro-atx. It's what I was looking for. Great price. It has 4 memory sockets for a total of 32GB of DDR3 ram. It supports 3 types of on board video display.

Cons: Unfortunately, my micro-atx case has a firewire/ ee1394 front header, whereas the motherboard does not support firewire itself. I bought an add on card for that (but no jack to support the front header). This board has only 2 on board system fan headers, I would liked to have had a third header in case my PSU had a fan controller.

Other Thoughts: When I mentioned maximum 32GB ram supported, I was referring to the fact that some micro-atx motherboards only have 2 sockets with a maximum 16GB ram support.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Reliable, easy to set up, inexpensive

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: At this point, Gigabyte boards are all I buy. This one replaces the AM2+ Gigabyte board I had running my old Phenom II 920 (both of which still work). I've had no problems with this board - everything just works, and works very well.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother DOA Victim

Pros: Beep Code was helpful to diagnose DOA Board

Cons: Came DOA. Beep Code gave me 1 Long and 3 short Beeps.

O.k. Bad memory I thought. Luckily I bought two sticks...both dead?

This build was for my father, and luckily, the RAM in MY computer will work... in theory. NOPE.

So my RAM in MY computer works, but my RAM this new build doesn't work. Well, there you have it.

Oh, and take a look at Gigabytes "help" section for beep codes:

http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/faq-page.aspx?fid=816

WHAT? Could you make that FAQ answer any less coherent?

Other Thoughts: I used to love Gigabyte. My previous PC had a Gigabyte Mobo, My current PC has a Gigabyte Mobo, my media PC has a Gigabyte Mobo, and my girlfriend's PC DID have a Gigabyte Mobo, but the computer wasn't running right at all (blue screens, freezes, slow) and after trying a fresh copy of Windows TWICE, I figured i'd replace the mobo. With all the parts the same except a new Mobo, my girlfriend's computer work perfectly. Now a DOA board.

Which really sucks because I live far away-ish from home and had the parts here on time to build, install windows and take it with me for my trip home tomorrow.

But this garbage Mobo ruined that. Guess it's a 4 hours one way drive some other weekend.

BURN me once shame on you, BURN me twice shame on me. Sorry Gigabyte, there won't be a third.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Board, Short Life

Pros: Board meet all expectations and then some. It was capable of simple games on SteamOS, hosting Virtual Machines, but most importantly It worked flawless with my CCTV capture card and cameras.

Cons: Here nine months later, the board can not run anything (including live boot images) without hard crashing. Heat was not an issue, i removed all hardware except for a functioning CPU and Memory. System still crashes hard after minutes of use, with hardly any resource hit.

Other Thoughts: It ran good for a long time. It is either not meant to be powered on 24x7, or I just received a bad board. I would buy Gigabyte again.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte FTW

Pros: Picked this up in the combo with an 860 and it's fantastic so far. Recognized everything and no issues with the 860, might have been something in an older bios or something. Very happy, BIOS easy to navigate as well. Using GSkill 2133. It initially saw as 1600 but once you select the higher profile it will set all the timings and speed correctly.

Very compact but lots of features and ports, couldn't be happier. I use to always use another MB brand but realized during the build this is like my 6 Gigabyte board recently. Haven't had any issues from any of them!

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for entry builds!

Pros: Cheap, reliable, can overclock, easy to setup, Easy BIOS

Cons: needed update out of box

Other Thoughts: Pick this for your budget/entry level gaming PC! I love it. Will be upgrading to the Full ATX version soon. Very easy BIOS, easy to overclock, no problems after 4 months of heavy use
