5 out of 5 eggsWorked for me A+ GIGABYTE

Pros: Kaveri a8 7600 apu works out of the box. Just works. Thinking about buying another one of these.

Cons: Sata connector is too close to usb 3 header. Had to whittle down some of the plastic on my cable's connector to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this since September and it turns on everyday. The system is a 1 harddrive system with r7 graphics from the apu. So its as simple as it gets for me. No raid headaches or overclocking issues to deal with. At some point I'll have the option of dropping in a newer faster chip. I bought a gigabyte Hercules psu so no issue with the 8 pin power connector. This is not an enthusiast board, just saying if you want crossfire or sli you probably don't want an apu to begin with.. But it was a smart choice for me.

2 out of 5 eggsNo video out of box

Pros: Good features, low price, quick delivery.

Cons: No video from motherboard. Waiting to hear back from Gigabyte.

Other Thoughts: Old mobmo LAN stopped working... other than that, all functions worked with no problems. New mobo installed but no video. PC sounds like its working (hard drives spin up, DVD spins,etc.) but no picture.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: This is a great motherboard, especially because it is less wide than most Micro ATX boards. I typically install this in a SilverStone PS08B case, and, when you could still get it, use a CoolerMaster Hyper N520 CPU heatsink.

Cons: There is no DisplayPort, even though the chipset on the motherboard would support it.

Other Thoughts: I have used this motherboard on several computers I have build for my clients. I have never had an issue with a Gigabyte motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsRAID option is useless, poor design

Pros: I use this motherboard and it has been mostly good and was able to overclock stable with watercooling.

Cons: The big downfall to this motherboard was getting the hardware RAID to be stable. It may be a defective MOBO but after a week of solid troubleshooting and many fresh installs with current drivers... I could not transfer files to the RAID array without it eventually causing a BSOD. System is stable otherwise and memory has been tested to isolate the driver to the RAID controller.

Going back to software striping win Windows 7 which has been ironically stable for over a year.

Other Thoughts: After years of owning AMD products. This will definitely be my last one.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo, But.....

Pros: Good solid motherboard and seems to be built well.
Very good price for the quality.

Cons: Only has two ram slots, but this wasn't a big deal for me.
This mobo requires a power supply with a 24-pin and a 8-pin ATX power connector, not 24-pin and 4-pin. If you are working on a new build, you will be fine. Just shop for a PSU accordingly. However, if you are upgrading or replacing a faulty mobo, you may end up having to buy a new PSU as well.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a combo deal from Newegg and the psu they included only had a 24pin and the standard 4pin power connector. You would think that a “combo” deal would work as a “combo”, but who am I? So the $30 I saved from buying a DIY combo, went out the door when I had to buy a new $50 psu. In Newegg's defense, there is fine print that states DIY kits are not guaranteed to be compatible. Having said that, it sorta defeats the purpose of buying a DIY kit if the components don't work together as a kit!

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible, don't get it.

Pros: item arrived DOA. Requested a refund for it and only received half of the credit back and had to pay for shipping to return it back to the company. BEWARE. This is a total scam and companies like this need to be shut down. Seemed like a good deal but there had to be a catch.

Cons: no pros, only cons.

Other Thoughts: when ordering things on New Egg, be wary of third party return policies.
