5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Tech Support is Awesome!

Pros: Installation was a breeze in Windows 7. The only problem I had was solved by Gigabyte tech support with very little headache on my end. See "Other thoughts" for more details on that issue.

They have included three PWM system fan headers on the board, which is a nice feature for a HTPC build.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Initially I had problems with the HDMI audio dropping and not returning when the display power was cycled. I bought this board for a HTPC, so this issue was particularly annoying for my build. After doing some research, I discovered that others were having the same problem and that it was not just an issue with Gigabyte boards, people with boards from other manufacturers were having the exact same problem. The problem was with the graphics found on the CPU and that company released a statement advising everyone they were aware of the problem and that it had been fixed with a combination of drivers and BIOS updates. I left the part dealing with other companies vague, Google will get you all the information you need on the subject.

Unfortunately I was already running the latest drivers and BIOS from Gigabyte and still experiencing the same problem. After exchanging a few emails with Gigabyte tech support, they sent me a slightly revised version of the latest BIOS, which cleared up all of my HDMI audio issues. I have been running the revised BIOS for several days now and the audio is rock solid, I have not been able to duplicate the issue. I asked when this revised BIOS would be available for download, but that information was unavailable. All they could tell me was that it would be available with the next BIOS update.

If anyone else is experiencing the same issue, or any other issue, rest assured that you will be well taken care of by the support team at Gigabyte. I highly recommend this motherboard!

1 out of 5 eggsBroke

Pros: None

Cons: Wouldn't power on anything: Fans, cpu, lights. Checked to make sure it wasn't the PSU and it wasn't.

Other Thoughts: Going to give it one more chance, with a replacement, really hopeful that it doesn't happen again.
This was a really sad Christmas.
