1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Cheap, but you get what you pay for which in this case is nothing.

Cons: Starts for 3-4 seconds, then quits.Tried different PSU's, ram etc to no avail. This board is DOA. Second DOA Gigabyte board in 6 months for me.

Other Thoughts: Stick with quality name brands such as ASUS or ASROCK.

4 out of 5 eggsSemi-Bargain Worked Out

Pros: *Good Layout on SATA Ports
*PS/2 Connections
*3 Video Ports Out
*No BIOS Update Needed

Cons: *Only 4 USB Rear Ports

Other Thoughts: Ordered this as a bundle with Pentium G3258. Loved that it was ten bucks shy of a C-note. 1st board received, audio went out after a week's time. PCI-e x16 slot never seemed to work on that board.

RMA'd to NewEgg, kudos to their service. They paid return shipping since it was within 30 days.

Using stock cooler, temps never got above 54C when used for light gaming. Added a used Gigabyte HD 7790 card and very pleased with energy usage. Most of the time, am seeing it under 100 watts, not counting monitor(s). Single stick of 4GB Ripjaws X is the RAM being used. EVGA 500B PSU is the power source.

I would buy again at half a C-note to pair with any 1150 socket processor. Not sure I would recommend since first board was problematic, unless someone doesn't mind working through the returns process.

I am greatly satisfied with this build. Also using this for HTPC with a current dual monitor setup and Bluetooth speaker with axillary stereo cable or over-ear headphones for privacy.

5 out of 5 eggsLove Love Love

Pros: Fast Boot, Responsive Tiered Sleep (sleep, auto shut off), price

Cons: Only one sys fan header

Other Thoughts: I got two of these with G3258 combo $99 total, and it is fast in very way. I bought an ECS H87H3-M3 and MSI Z97 PC Mate board and neither is as peppy as this board with otherwise identical hardware (G3258 @ 4.5 GHz). Intel 520 SSD, ASUS GT 610, Earthwatts 380W PSU and Fractal 1100 Case round out my favorite little office PC since my AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto build probably 5 years ago. Fast fast fast.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Bios???

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Maybe it was a BIOS that was not updated, but I paired then with a G3258 and the fan would spin but I could not enter the BIOS. Wasted about 3 hours going through all the troubleshooting steps for a new build. Finally, had to RMA. Hope this was a fluke, but getting excited for a new build and then losing all that time is a huge disappointment,.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Fast shipping (next day). Nice layout and colour.

Cons: I replaced my old ECS Core2Duo motherboard on a working computer, and once a new motherboard was installed it didn't event power on....

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte hardware was one of my favourite brands and many times I used Gigabyte motherboards in my other PCs. Guess, I need to stick to another brand, or may be I should have bought more expensive board...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo for the price

Pros: HDMI for onboard Haswell Graphics
4 Sata ports
2 USB 3.0 ports
Costomizable Bios - lots of features!

Cons: 2 6gb/sec SATA & 2 3gb/sec SATA ports, what year is this? I would think 6gb.sec would be standard by now.
Front header USB 2.0 only - kinda a con if your case has USB 3.0 on front headers.

Other Thoughts: For the price this is a great board if you want a basic computer and want the HDMI input for onboard with Intel graphics.
This would also be a good HTPC board for many due to the HDMI on the mobo and it's small form factor.
This is a great board for the price - I just hope next refresh we see some of those USB 2.0's gone and Sata 3gb replaced with more 6gb.

-1 egg for Sata 3gb and to many USB 2.0s for 2014.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price, HDMI, haven't had many issues with this at all.

Worked great out of the box with my Linux distro of choice.

Cons: Only 4 SATA ports. But I knew that going in. Actually only 3 for, because one popped off the board when a cable snagged during build. It seemed like it came off pretty easily, but I'm not sure if that was the board itself or me, so I'm only taking one egg off.

No Win XP drivers. Not that I'm really going to find them for anything new, and I could have easily found that out before buying it. Just hated having to hunt down a reasonably priced Win7 when I only use Windows for the occasional gaming urge.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for price

Pros: Smaller than most boards of this factor size.
3 video out ports - 1 is HDMI
UEFI dual bios - many tweaks
well constructed

Cons: none at this point

Other Thoughts: works well with most apps
onboard video will suit all but the most intense graphic needs
