1 out of 5 eggsCan't get it to boot

Pros: none yet, as I can't get it to boot

Cons: Could use some thoughts/help on how to get it to boot.
When all is connected and installed (disk, dvd, frotend panel, graphics card), the system beeps, 1 long and 2 short beeps. Looking it up tells me there's an issue with the display system.
I've connected my screen to the VGA output of the motherboard, but the screen remains blank. I'ce also connected it to the the HDMI output of the graphics card with the same results.
I read that the BIOS screen is supposed to show, but my screen remains blank.
Double checked all connections, even tried to boot without the graphics card, but the screen remains blank and the system beeps as said above.

Where do I go wrong ? Do I need to press a magic button before something shows on the screen ?

PS : My screen works ok on another system.

Other Thoughts: I'm using

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

Pros: It boots up as long as you don't take advantage of any of the performance features (discrete graphics card, RAM faster than 1600 mHz).

Cons: Does not support discrete graphics (fails to boot with numerous different discrete graphics cards - does not post). Does not support 2133 mHz RAM (does not post when RAM is faster than 1600 mHz).

Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard for my new gaming rig. Because I cannot use RAM faster than 1600 mHz or a discrete video card, it is worthless to me. These issues cropped up 37 days from purchase, so Newegg will not allow an RMA. Do not buy this motherboard.

Pros: Posted this board with an A10-5800K APU, an 8gb kit of Team Elite Ram, 1TB HDD and DVDRW drive for a relative and installed Windows 7 HP 64 bit. System runs smooth as expected and had 0 issues out of the box.

Cons: None so far

4 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Ga-F2a78M-D3H-FM2+

Pros: 6 X Sata 3
Gigabyte Ethernet
Advanced Bios
High Speed Memory
Dual Graphics Slots For crossfire
Pci Express 3.0 (With Fm+ Processor)
Micro ATX Form Factor fits my case perfectly
4X USB 3.0
8X USB 2.0
Triple Monitor Support (Great for Gaming

Cons: Have to buy FM2+ CPU to Get Pci 3.0 (but it is worth it for all you gamers out there)

Other Thoughts: Only knocked off 1 star because you need an FM2+ CPU for PCI 3.0. Overall very pleased with the board as it is set up to overclock and build your system as you like it.
Great board for people without a large case that want to build a powerful system at a decent price

5 out of 5 eggsNice board

Pros: Easy to setup. Stable.

Cons: Only that the BIOS needs to be updated for 1920x1080 VGA to properly display. Not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I'll keep using these instead of MSI boards.

4 out of 5 eggsHonestly, I should have bought a better board.

Pros: Board looks nice.

Has an orderly layout.

Was a decent value.

Didn't kick my dog.

Cons: Cheapest I/O plate I have ever seen. It was nearly offensive looking, even when installed. Sure, this is where you should cut corners to save money, but man is it awful.

The RAM slots are numbered backwards(visually on the board) to how they are read internally/electrically.

I had an issue formatting disks the way I wanted them. that was resolved by hooking it up to another(more expensive, intel chipset, gigabyte) board, and doing it there. Not a real issue. It worked, just not to my preference.

Never got the front audio working. Not for lack of trying. Could be the case, but I doubt it.(I have no easy way of checking)

Bloatware. The driver disc has bloatware spammed all over it. Be wary when installing. As per usual, going to the manufacturer's website for updates is better than using it.

Other Thoughts: I put this in an old COMPAQ case for my mother's rig. It gave me a bit of a headache. I can't blame the board entirely, but it was far more frustrating than the build I did last month with another gigabyte board. It was also my first APU build. So there's that too.

I honestly only knocked off an egg for the really cheap I/O plate, and a small amount of frustration. The product works as intended. And didn't really fail in any manner. If you go aren't picky, and know to install AMD video drivers for the APU. This board won't give you any problems at all.
