GIGABYTE GA-B85M-DS3H (rev. 3.0) LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: four DIMM slots. allows older lower density memory.
USB 3.0 header
six SATA ports
well thought out connector locations on the MoBo

Overclocks the G3258 nicely within its limits.

Cons: Only one case fan header. A second fan header would have gotten this to 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Using the stock cooler, this is stable running a G3258 at 4.0 Ghz tested with Win 81 pro.

Intended use is a Linux server so this will be a nice budget build combined with a G3258 and 4GB ram.

note: I submitted an earlier review which may be deleted. The multipliers were locked. The BIOS listed on the rev 2.0 board was FD, but I re flashed the BIOS after downloading from Gigabyte and then the CPU was unlocked.

GIGABYTE GA-B85M-DS3H (rev. 3.0) LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 4 DIMM slots, USB 3.0 header, decent board layout.

Cons: no unlocked multipliers for the G3258

otherwise this would be 4.5 eggs.
Only other con is it would be nice to have one more fan header.1 system, 1 CPU just barely gets by.

Other Thoughts: This was bought specifically to OC the G3258 and the bonus was the 4 DIMM slots so I could leverage existing low density memory for a fast budget build.

I'll revise the review if Gigabyte resolves this, otherwise it will be returned.

MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Perfect fit for a fairly snug XPS 8700. GPU temp stays well within limits for AC4 (nearly max) or Skyrim V (ultra high) settings.

Fan no louder than the OEM dell case fan.

great balance of connectors, and I suspect this will be a hand-me-down for a future SLI system once the new 8xx series come out and the 760s drop in price.

Cons: The Power connectors on the top of the card are a little hard to get to.

nVidia "experience" software feels a little heavy.

Other Thoughts: for the price, awesome graphics card. With the free AC4, Dad might get to play this game some day :)
