5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: I was actually going to look at a Gigabyte MB when ordering my APU, but when I saw that Newegg included one with their package kit, I jumped on it. I have used this brand in the past and always gotten good reports. They make quality stuff.

Cons: None to be seen

Other Thoughts: Thanks Newegg for making this part of the package you put together!

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty Manufacturing

Pros: None

Cons: everything. failure to recognized sata ports. failed to hold bios memory.
caused system failure throughout windows and caused corrupted sectors on hard drive.

Other Thoughts: i was excited when i received this until i started to build my machine. drivers are complicated and almost impossible to find. every third time you power it up it fails. if you do manage to get it operational after about two hours of use the motherboard slows down giving you lost functionality through windows. ended up crashing my whole system and corrupting my hard drive format. also if you bought this in a bundle deal, your s.o.l. on returning it because you have to return the entire bundle instead of just this faulty mother board.

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection to my previous comments

Pros: Everything works great no failures i like the clickable BIOS still going strong !!!!

Cons: In my previous review (which i dont know how to remove) i stated that the Realtek lan port was giving me 3 Mbps on out 15 mpbs internet connection so i thought it was faulty.... well it turns out it was NOT the motherboards problem but windows 7 YES win 7 is the culprit I installed Win 8.1 on a separate partition and the Lan adapter is giving me 16.24 Mbps. To make it short windows 7 was my problem might be different for you and Windows 8.1 was my solution.
