No diagnosing issues with this board 01/19/2014
Looks beautiful, has enough expansion and storage options to meet most needs.
This board has no error diagnosing tools onboard. On 99 and five-more-nines percent of boards, this feature is fulfilled with a simple PC speaker connection. This motherboard has no PC speaker connection and no built in speaker. If you are unable to POST or see a BIOS screen, well, you're So Out of Luck. It could be your cpu, it could be your ram, it could be this motherboard itself. But you'll never know with this board because GA made it impossible to tell without a PC speaker and beep codes. Of course you code buy a POST card, but that is pretty silly unless you are doing computer building or repairing professionally.
I was not able to pass the POST phase with my setup and I have no way of identifying the fault because of the lack of a PC speaker with this motherboard. For most people, lack of a PC speaker will never be an issue. But in the odd case that you need it, you really do need it. If I could give it 0 eggs for this reason, I would.
