Extended Server Level 168-Hour Durability Test



GIGABYTE Black Edition motherboards undergo an extra 168 hours (7 days) of stress testing before shipment to ensure premium quality for our customers.

During the 168-hour test, each motherboard needs to pass rigorous, full system validation testing for one full week. GIGABYTE has built a custom testing facility at our Taiwan (Nanping) factory.

A Certificate of Validation is included with every board, issued by the GIGABYTE factory and signed by the manufacturing VP & GM to indicate that each board has passed our highest test standards.

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.

GIGABYTE
GIGABYTE

All New Heat Sink Design

GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards feature new heat sink designs that offer uncompromisingly efficient cooling on key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset (PCH).

1 out of 5 eggsSemi-decent board product support hell

Pros: Well, it did work for a while. Guess that is a pro

Cons: Just how many trips back to gigabyte does it take to make something work? The world may never know.

Gigabyte blames any failure on other components, and will insist the product you are returning is fine with "multiple configurations" Too bad they never took the little piece of tape I put over power connector off. (trick I had learned with previous returns, tiny piece of clear tape over power connector... when it comes back with tape still on, you know you are getting fed a story from the vendor.) This was never even tested when returned. Needless to say, it acted the same after it came back. Since then the machine was put together with a new Asus mobo, and operates fine. This mobo acted the same with all new PWS, mem, and CPU. how sweet, huh?

Save you money and go buy something from a company that knows how to actually hookup defective boards, much less fix them. And if you do buy gigabyte junk, if it fails, just toss it in the trash can and save a month of downtime, along with the shipping to send it back. Same horror story as I have heard form other people that have had to deal with a gigabyte return.

Other Thoughts: Allot of other brands out there, i had used gigabyte's components whenever aval. I guess I have learned the error of my ways. No matter how decent, flashy, or what the specs look like, when it comes down to it, the support is all that counts. Obviously that is a failure with these people.

Highly recommend you keep shopping, this is not the type of support you want to count on.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good, until the hdmi port dies

Pros: Looks great
2 980ti's run together great
RAM loves it
I7 - 4790k 4.0gz loves it

Cons: BIOS isn't the best
HDMI port died all of a sudden.

I have two 980ti's in sli. One monitor is plugged into a 980ti and the other monitor is plugged into the motherboard's HDMI port. It was working well until one day i boot my computer up and the monitor doesn't work. Just to make sure i plug it into the second graphics card, it works fine. Now i would keep it like that but to run sli you can only have 1 monitor plugged into the graphics cards. I cant even use the VGA port, as the second monitor is really a samsung tv running at 1366x768 and only has 2 HDMI ports. So i'm stuck here with a useless tv and a useless HDMI port.

2 out of 5 eggspoor quality

Pros: Stays cool, looks good. That's it.

Cons: First off I had issues with overclocking, the purpose of this board, because of a conflict between the board and Intel XTU. Cause a crash that forced me into another bios when I used Intel's overclocking stability test on a board meant for Intel CPU's. Now I have no way of cancelling adaptive voltage, something XTU wanted to use for stability testing. A few weeks ago my headphones stopped picking up surround sound, I found this out when characters in the video game I play went silent. Turns out the board stop recognizing the headphones and just sends out the audio for the front speakers. After over a week of frustrating communication with Gigabytes tech support the best they offered was for me to send in my board for testing. Not replace it, test it. That means I got to choose between the surround sound I bought the motherboard to have, of my computer for how ever long that process takes. Gigabyte lost me as a customer and I strongly advise anyone reading this to avoid their products as the customer support is not anywhere close to what you'll find with other companies. I learned a lesson and hope it helps someone by placing that lesson here. I left two eggs because the build quality seems to be there, time will tell.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer before warned.

Pros: None, and the only pro I can give is to Newegg c.s. for getting me another board back so quickly.

Cons: This is the second time I have had to replace this board. This time I am going through Gigabyte and crossing my fingers that they will send version 1.2 of the board maybe it is a more stable board I just hope. I really wanted this board to work out if has a lot of features that I want. I will say I am disappointed though.

3 out of 5 eggsMemory Slots Defective

Pros: Well, great features, this will be my fourth Gigabyte, third from the Durable line....but I'm here only about the "con".

Cons: Looks like I'm not the only one with only two memory slots working. Took me as look to troubleshoot the issue as to build the thing. Unacceptable after 168 hours testing claim. Don't have time to return as it's a build for a friend who's passing through town that I built for. Just crossing my fingers that there aren't going to be any more problems...I can live with 2 channels, but shouldn't have too. The sata placement off the board was awkward, but luckily I put it in a huge case.

Other Thoughts: What does 168 hour Factory testing mean if a product arrives defective?

5 out of 5 eggsGA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Review

Pros: The board looks and feels good. Not a lot of exposed electronics to get bumped into, so you feel safe working with it. It installed easily, and worked fine.

Cons: There is no "power button" on the motherboard, which is useful when setting up a new system for diagnostics. The SATA connectors are hard to connect to once installed, but that may have just been my case; you can always connect them and then install the motherboad.

Other Thoughts: Great board, I will buy Gigabyte again

5 out of 5 eggsMost reliable MOBO you can find

Pros: 168 hour Factory testing ensures a great product. This board is very durable and well made. There are all the connectors and slots you could want and they are put together well. The black finish on the PCB and components are a great touch. The 5 year warranty doesn't hurt much either.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great for overclocking your components with confidence. This board will not disappoint!

1 out of 5 eggsMissing cd and post speaker..

Pros: Fast shipping easy replace

Cons: The item did not come with everything. I'm pretty mad as this was the first time I bought an item from newegg. The first item I had, 2 of the ram slot didn't work so I got a replacement. The replacement worked but It didn't have the gigabyte cd, and the post speaker that usually comes with it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your comments. We apologize for your difficulty with your GIGABYTE product.
Motherboard does not come with POST speaker. Please contact GIGABYTE customer service at 1-626-854-9338 opt. 4 for replacement driver disk.
