5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: The F5 BIOS on this board is a hoot. It's like mission control center-lol. Other than that it has great audio, top notch construction with 100% solid capacitors (long life) and first rate circuit board (no flimsy epoxy-paper pressing). I was going to buy an audio card for my Foxconn H87MX-D (which is a great budget board) but rather than buy the Asus audio card I bought this Gigabyte motherboard with the Realtek AC887. Saved $20. Look up the specs! Running an i5-4570 with Adata 2x8 DDR3 and it is rock solid and fast.

Cons: Nothing negative to report.

Other Thoughts: I like to try the chipsets out, memory, CPU combinations to see for myself how they perform with my favorite games. BF, COD, and everything Steam puts on sale. Gigabyte has a surprise in this board. I'm glad I bought it. And if you are new to Newegg and live on the East Coast--it shipped from TN and was at the door here in Maryland in two days.

4 out of 5 eggsGood enough

Pros: - solid
- smaller than some mATX boards

Cons: - No USB 3.0 headers

Other Thoughts: This is a 6.7" width board, so it'll be much easier to fit in most cases. There is no internal USB 3.0 header, so pretty much any case will need an adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board, Latest BIOS will OC the anniversay Pentium G3258

Pros: With the latest BIOS update (F5), I was able to overclock the G3258 by adjusting the multiplier (aka ratio) to 42 giving me 4.2 GHz!

You can also slightly OC the RAM from 1333 to 1400MHz.

Cons: The BIOS is kind of messy, would suck if you didn't know what you're doing, you can switch to "classic" mode and it is a little better.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has at least a couple of B/H series boards that can OC the G3258. I think many if not most the board makers will follow suit with BIOS updates for all their 1155 boards.

5 out of 5 eggsCan overclock the G3258 with the F5 BIOS update

Pros: I managed to get this board along with the G3258 together for a really great price.

I heard that some ASUS and MSI non Z series boards could overclock the G3258, but I hadn't heard anything about Gigabyte boards so I was curious when the board arrived.

My board came with the F1 BIOS which wasn't able to overclock the chip. Once I upgraded to the latest F5 BIOS I was able to overclock it.

Obviously you won't be breaking records with the board, but for the money it's a great deal. I'm currently running at 4GHz with the stock cooler in a small form factor case without any issues.

Cons: I noticed that even without overclocking the system that the heatsink on top of the chipset gets really warm, warmer than most of the other boards that I have used in the past.

I haven't experienced any real issues with the system due to the warm chipset so I guess I can't really complain.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a really good Micro ATX board for the money. If you have a little extra money I'd look for a model that has four slots for RAM for easier upgrades in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Board for a Basic build

Pros: Good Board for basic use.
Solid construction and easy to use BIOS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used this board with an Intel G3220 for a basic build for my dad. Had no problems with installation or BIOS.

I would spend a few more $ on a better board for a mild gaming rig. Use this for Web Browsing / Homework / Movies/ etc.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly As Described

Pros: Low price. Solid construction. Looks good (for what it's worth).

Cons: Lacks some features of more expensive boards, but has everything I needed.

Other Thoughts: I used this board with a Haswell i3 for an inexpensive workstation. It went together easy. I really have no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsquick and easy

Pros: I think this is pretty simple. I wanted a relatively cheap micro ATX board for a basic home computer that would be for my wife. I got a decent deal with the $10 rebate that was recently run, so I went with this one. I didn’t care about the lack of HDMI, the monitor wasn’t going to have it anyway and the 2 DIMM slots was going to be plenty for just basic email/video/photo stuff.

The build using this board went quick as could be. The board always felt sturdy as I was connecting the various cables or CPU/heat sink.

Cons: Won’t get me a beer.
