2 out of 5 eggs Memory Issues 01/27/2010

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Works with 667 memory

Cons:

Can't find anything over DDR2/667 to run on this board. My guess is that Gigabyte is not concerned with releasing a compatible/updated BIOS. They referred me to either outdated or over priced modules available at whogivesahoot DOT com or something.

Other Thoughts:

What works for others may not work for you. Look for this board on ALL the memory reviews you consider and you'll notice an equal trend of compatible vs incompatible memory. This isn't rocket science. We should all be able to install system specified memory, regardless of brand.

The board had several options for OC, but until you're ready to put up with return shipping to here and there or adjust settings for days or weeks...I'd pass on Gigabyte. I gave them 2 eggs because of the time and money spent (spending now) tracking down just the right memory.
