3 out of 5 eggsBeware the BIOS!!!!!!

Comments: First let me cite my configuration: K8NS Pro, 2 X 512MB 400MHz SEC DDR DIMM's, AMD Sempron 3100+ Retail, 2 X WD 160GB SATA HDD's (RAID 1), ATI Radeon 9600 XT. The system is and always has been run at standard clock speeds with rock-solid performance. It origanally shipped with F9 BIOS and worked flawlessly. When F10 was posted I upgraded and it too worked without a problem. However when I upgraded to F11 it all came crashing down. The system would not POST even with the glorified Dual BIOS claims. After searching the forums I found that others had noted compatibility issues with more than one memory module installed. I found this hard to swallow since it had previously worked fine with two. But I decided to give it a try with just one module installed since the other possibility was BIOS corruption from the Flash Update. To my amazement and disappointment it not only did a successful POST but booted too. I tried tinkering with the settings, clearing the configuration and loading fail-safe settings so I could install the other module. But nothing seemed to make a difference. In a last-ditch desparation I back-reved the BIOS to F10 which previously worked fine. Though the back-rev was successful the system still fails to POST with both DIMM's installed. The moral to the story is that the board is rock-solid so long as you either use only a single DIMM or never upgrade the BIOS if you are so fortunate to get one that works out of the box with more than one DIMM.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly one DDR would work!

Comments: First of all this board seems very atractive with all the features considering the price. I started having a problem for bootup. It took me a while to find what was wrong. After swapping the DIMM and diagnosis, I found this MOBO was the problem. Quality of cooling fan is so poor, too. It is much louder than CPU fan. I would not recommend this product. I do not think I will buy GIGABYTE again. This is it.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte USB Problems

Comments: This board has been returned to the manufacturer 2 times now because it keeps blowing out the USB interface. At first I thought it was because I hooked up a USB hard drive and maybe it pulled too much current through the drivers, but the second time was merely a USB camera. When it goes, it completely kills the motherboard and it won't even post. It takes at least 4 weeks to get a turn around on the motherboard and they won't even consider sending a new board until it has died at least 3 time (then it is a lemon). I ended up buying an Axxx board and have had no problems with it at all. Now I am not sure what to do when I get this one back, door stop maybe.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed Owner

Comments: I don't really know where to begin to tell you how disappointed I am with this motherboard. I purchased it while it sold in the hundreds of dollars, but now I see you can get it literally for nothing. I personally don't recommend anyone waisting their money buying it. Gigabyte from what I learned is notorious for memory issues with their boards and now I can sit here ans tell you that all what was said is true to this point and maybe isolated with the board model I have. First of all, my board will not allow me to add anymore ram in the adjacent two slots without beeping perfusively. I thought my problem would be solved if I found some single channeled memory but this board will not even run with two pieces of ram. I just waisted over one hundred and fifty dollars on patriot ram to find out that there wasn't nothing wrong with the ram I currently have. Looks like I'll have to get a board that will not freak out if you add dual channel memory to it ... even if it's designed to run single sided ram.

Buyer beware!

Comments: Keyboard port didn't work first thing. Board was out of warranty by the time I got it installed in a system. I have delt with better SATA controllers although everything else seems to be working. If you're looking for a board that will handle many drives, this is a good buy but I have seen nothing above average.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent value

Comments: After going through a long series of socket 754 boards (MSI K8N Neo platinum, ASRock Combo-Z, SOLTEK SL-K8AN2E-GR) give me trouble (crashes/dead boards), I gave this board a try and I finally had a stable board. Best value 754 socket motherboard. NForce3 chipset is better featured than Via or Ali chipsets.

Newegg.com customer service is the best. I don't shop anywhere else.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Comments: This motherboard is excellent, it has 2 seprate ATA raid controllers each holding up to 4 devices (8 ATA devices total) and 4 SATA connectors. Im running 4 IDE 20gig 7200 rpm hard drives in 1 RAID 0 array...very fast...and the overclocking features are very simple and work well and duel BIOS makes BIOS update worry free.

2 out of 5 eggsArg!

Comments: Newegg's service was exceptional, but be warned. This board is very, very picky when it comes to having two DIMMs installed and will drop it down to 333 Mhz. "Kingston" is the sputtering answer of Gigabyte's tech support, but if my Corsair XMS cannot run it, then you have already lost me. The board has many good features, like the dual BIOS and what have you, but in light of memory problems and only a 2.7 volt max on the RAM, if you want stablity over features look to ChainTech.

Many features, very bad memory compatabilty when compared with simmilar soultions with the same chipset.
