1 out of 5 eggsSTOPPED WORKING WITH IN 90 DAYS

Pros: It was fairly easy to install

Cons: The motherboard stopped working with in 90 days. I had our IT guy at my work help me put this in my computer and worked good for a while but over the weekend it was saying that something was wrong and it needed to fix its self. So when it tried to fix its self it said that it couldn't. I have never had a computer fail this fast. I am very displeased with this product!

1 out of 5 eggsDo not recommend...

Pros: Like others... Price, features, durability

Cons: Also like others.. Won't POST. No dedicated graphics card - just trying to use onboard. No matter what I try, 1 long 2 short beeps. I have already waited 2 weeks for an RMA and still have the same problem with the new one.. I'm extremely displeased.

Other Thoughts: If I were you, I would keep shopping. It's not worth the risk of dealing with two consecutive bad boards.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

If Athlon processor is installed, dedicated graphic card must be installed for POST.

3 out of 5 eggsFickle MOBO

Pros: -Sturdy build quality
-Lots of neat features

Cons: -Doesn't always start up

Other Thoughts: I got 2 of these, the first one I had to replace because it broke for whatever reason and didn't turn on more than once. The second one is quite strange in that when I try turning on my computer, it doesn't send graphics out through either the on board graphics or the graphics card I have. However if I turn it off then turn it on immediately afterwards it works.

1 out of 5 eggsCant get it to post

Pros: Looks cool and everything fit into it well but thats about it.

Cons: It will power on and all the fans and what not work but I keep getting AGP error beeps from my mobo speaker. Ive tried booting with my graphics card and onboard graphics and still nothing. Gigabytes customer service is taking their sweet time to get back to me about it as well so the just makes it even better. (sarcasm) Looks like Ill prob be sending this one back.

2 out of 5 eggsGot a defective unit.

Pros: - Features
- Price

Cons: - On-board HDMI port did not work. VGA worked, but my KVM is HDMI-only.
- When booting via Legacy PXE (Realtek), USB keyboard and mouse no longer work. USB keyboard and mouse work in UEFI/BIOS, but as soon as we enter PXE, they do not work. I tried many UEFI/BIOS options related to USB keyboard/mouse, but it makes no difference.
- Gigabyte support was not very helpful, though they tried. Eventually, did not have the time to wait for their replies.

Other Thoughts: Weird, two consecutive FM2+ mainboards did not work for me - one an Asus and then this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board. Used for Upgrades.

Pros: Price, Features, Function, what's not to like?

Cons: DVI is digital only, where you cannot use a VGA adapter to use an older second monitor.

Other Thoughts: I have been using these for upgrades of Dell units that are 3+years old. Dropping them in the case with new PSU, Memory and SSD. Works like a charm. Have 6 in service and they are doing fine.
