Pros: The F5 BIOS on this board is a hoot. It's like mission control center-lol. Other than that it has great audio, top notch construction with 100% solid capacitors (long life) and first rate circuit board (no flimsy epoxy-paper pressing). I was going to buy an audio card for my Foxconn H87MX-D (which is a great budget board) but rather than buy the Asus audio card I bought this Gigabyte motherboard with the Realtek AC887. Saved $20. Look up the specs! Running an i5-4570 with Adata 2x8 DDR3 and it is rock solid and fast.
Cons: Nothing negative to report.
Other Thoughts: I like to try the chipsets out, memory, CPU combinations to see for myself how they perform with my favorite games. BF, COD, and everything Steam puts on sale. Gigabyte has a surprise in this board. I'm glad I bought it. And if you are new to Newegg and live on the East Coast--it shipped from TN and was at the door here in Maryland in two days.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast. 9-9-9-24 with headroom. Gigabyte H81M-DS2V accepts these just fine. They run cool.
Cons: There are no cons. these two sticks in the H81M-DS2V are fast. Stable. What else is needed?
Other Thoughts: I can appreciate people who get ram and get a bad stick. It's happened to me with Kingston and Crucial. But that's when customer service makes or breaks your mood. I have bought Adata flash and Adata thumb drives and this is my third Adata DDR3 purchase. No issues to report. I think my first purchase from Adata was in 2007. I paid the regular price and I'm happy. They are worth it when you consider the memory will last years and years. The awesome waranty makes it that much better.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Foxconn H87MX-D LGA 1150 Intel H87 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I left a negative review as you can see and Foxconn supplied a phone number for me to call. Turns out they had moved offices and the Foxconn number on Newegg and the forms on FoxconnChannel.com didn't work. But I called the number left by their tech support, got an answer on the first ring, got an RMA number and sent the bricked board in via USPS. That was last Friday and today, 7 days later, I received an brand spanking new H87MX-D with the latest bios. Thank you Foxconn! Foxconn customer service is as good as it gets based on my experience with them.
Cons: None - nada - zero.READ FULL REVIEW
