This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
It's a great board if you don't want to overclock or crossfire/SLI. The number of connections on the back port is amazing..... 2x eSATA 2x USB 3.0 along with all of the audio connections one could possibly want.
Gigabyte, why are none of your boards a standard form factor? This board says that it is ATX, but it is too short to reach the last 3 standoffs. It also has another hole next to the ram where there are no stand off holes in the case!
It also isn't FLEX ATX either, so I don't know how gigabyte comes up with it's system. I have another board from the 700 series that was the same way.
Docked an egg for the form factor issues.
