GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Workhorse Motherboard 05/31/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've built 6 PC's for family members using this mobo over the last couple of years and they are just really solid - not a single issue yet. With a Core 2 CPU (cheap on the used market) they make a decent family PC and run Win7 64bit well - no issues with drivers either.

Cons: Only 8GB RAM supported - but that is known when buying this. Tried premium brand "high performance" 2x4GB DDR3-1600 RAM (tested in a different mobo) and it didn't work - went back to generic DDR3-1333 RAM without heat spreader and it works perfectly - a little picky with RAM.

WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX

Pros: I ordered a set of 4 of these. When they arrived, I ran the WD tools for a full surface test (I think it took about 4 - 6 hours) and every one of them was nearly perfect - I am impressed. They seem to run cool and aren't very loud. I have two of them in a NAS and a third in a computer for backup for several months and no issues. They even came with a cool sticker to put on the front of the case.

Cons: None that I've found

Other Thoughts: I was happy to see that these had the SATA locking cable compatible shell - the WD Black drives don't have a shell around the connector and the cable isn't supported and it won't lock. These drives are meant to slide into a NAS backplane but yet they have the SATA locking shell - well I like them this way so I'm not complaining

Pros: Charged an older phone on the standard port, charged my Samsung S4 very quickly on the "super" port - I really liked this charger. It didn't seem to get hot and it lasted a lot longer than my last car charger.

Cons: Mine died after 6 months but the 3 other ones I bought and gave out as gifts are still working. I used mine almost everyday and it was often charging two phones at the same time - I used it a lot and used it hard.

Other Thoughts: I love Orico products - I have USB wall chargers (2 port and 4 port), lots of HDD storage boxes, and a SATA HDD docking station and they have all been fine products. I just bought a couple of the bigger 30W car charger 4 port versions with two "super" charge ports so I will see how those last charging two phones!
