Pros: Worked for 6 months in a HTPC, video only, no gaming. Is that a Pro ?
Cons: Worked for exactly 6 months with very light use, Linux HTPC only, no gaming and then died. I have video cards running for 6 years ! Now they expect me to pay to ship it for RMA ????
Other Thoughts: MSI used to be a good name before but judging at reviews of all their product failure after 6month to 1year of purchase, I am not buying any more MSI products.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-H61M-D2P-B3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Intel Motherboard
Pros: Cheaper and supports Sandy Bridge.
Cons: Only one system fan header. Most mobo have atleast 2.
WOL not working at all, seems like a typical Gigabyte issue (google). After I shutdown the system, the network LED remains lit for a second and then it turns off. I have checked that ERP setting is disabled. The BIOS says, if you enable ErP setting, then WOL will not work. So, I made sure ErP is disabled. All other settings are set to make sure WOL is enabled. All my MSI/ECS/ASUS motherboards have same settings and all of these work fine with WOL. Not much help from the Gigabyte support as usual.

If you are planning to run linux, FC5 doesn't work in graphics mode. Also, download the realtek gigabit network drivers from their website. ATI linux drivers downloaded from their website did work.
