Humidity Protection with New Glass Fabric PCB

There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions.

Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.

1 out of 5 eggsMOBO video was green/DOA, also crashed after 15mins of use

Pros: MOBO looked good on paper, had everything I wanted - I think Newegg got a bad batch from vendor.

Cons: Sent MOBO back to Gigabyte for repair. Surly support person. Got it back - same problems. I do not think they touched it at all.

Other Thoughts: NEVER BUYING A GIGABYTE AGAIN.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Works as it should
Bios is easy to navigate

Cons: Sata placement can be awkward with large video cards

Other Thoughts: Sata ports are placed in such a way that they end up covered by my 980 in the x16 pcie port. This is solvable by plugging in sata devices first

2 out of 5 eggsWorks for a while than started to freeze the system

Pros: Looks good

The sound board is by its self
BIOS is easy to use

Cons: Worked for 3 month than stopped working.

Other Thoughts: I would say go buy another one. This is not worth the price I payed for full price. I emailed GIGABYTE and they were of no help.

1 out of 5 eggsPossible DOA

Pros: none.

Cons: Having probablem with the board, pretty sure since it was opened upon recieving it, that it was a refurbished board. I took it to a local computer team to work on it, and they are having problems getting the board to turn on. I'd like a refund or some help with the issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: Nice to look at, ran great when it ran at all.

Cons: Owned for a little over a year. Worked as expected up until a week ago, then died and would not boot up. Just dead. Changed power supply, breadboarded, nothing. Got a different motherboard and I'm up and running again.

Gigabyte generally has good quality stuff, but this item is not part of that reputation. Avoid this motherboard and go with something else.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk board from a less than reliable manufacturer

Pros: NONE.

Cons: Bought the board with a supported CPU, supported memory, a supported PSU and a hard drive at Christmas. The junk mobo arrived DOA. I was told to test things before I could RMA. I did and found everything to be good except for the junk mobo.
I did an RMA and waited. Got 2nd copy of junk mobo and it was also DOA. This time, I decided to work with the less than reliable manufacturer for the RMA. It is now April and I have yet to get a working motherboard. More than 3 months of chasing this problem down and still no computer.

I will not be dealing with any products from the less than reliable manufacturer again. I was told that Gigabyte was an OK company but my encounter has not been good. Their RMA cycle is now measuring in months to resolve and no end is in sight.

Should have spent the extra $100 for an ASUS. I have already spent that much in testing and RMA shipping fees.

Other Thoughts: I was forced by Newegg's posting standards to replace the adjectives that I deem properly descriptive for the acceptable "junk" and "less than reliable".

1 out of 5 eggsDon't recommend

Pros: When it worked (For about a week) it was great. Great Service by Newegg

Cons: After a week of working fine, It started rebooting itself for no reason. I retuned back to Newegg and they send me another one that didn't even boot. DOA. I am in the process of sending it back and asking for a refund to be able to buy a different brand of motherboard.

Other Thoughts: None

2 out of 5 eggsWas Great but not so much any more

Pros: Mobo was easy to hook and and get running in just a hour. Easy to configure.

Cons: Worked like a champ for about a year and half. But now like many other posts i see wont boot. Just restarts its self after every 10 secounds or so. I removed the power suply tryed another and same thing. Even after pulling ram, graphics card and cpu and reseating everthing still does the same thing. Do Not buy this motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard - Super fast - super easy to use

Pros: This motherboard has it all - Plenty of USB 3.0 ports - PCI-E slots for SLI, and support for massive amounts of RAM - everything I would want and need from a motherboard today.

Cons: Not much - with the system I got, it was super easy to build in hours.

1 out of 5 eggsLooked and worked great, Until now!

Pros: Looks great! Was easy to setup and it worked awesome while it did work.

Cons: Have had it for a year and than couple of days ago it wouldn't boot up. It would start up for about 10 seconds than reboot itself and it kept doing that over and over and over. Finally figured out what it was, seems two of my RAM slots have died on me.

Other Thoughts: Seeing as others are having same issue i wouldn't buy this MB. I also won't recommend it either.
