GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 6 SATA ports for future expansion and crazy fast USB 3.0. Surprised to find this board has a 20 pin internal USB 3.0 header so there are actually (4) USB 3.0 ports (not just 2 like Newegg says) - it is black so easy to miss. Haven't tried it yet. First time I've used this mobo - was very pleased with ease of build from installing board to loading drivers for Win7 64bit - went very smoothly. IMO, Gigabyte and Asus have the highest quality motherboards out there - this one is even better than the last Asus I used at this price point.

Update: over a year as my primary family computer and zero issues - this computer is so much faster than the one it replaced that I don't expect to update for several years. Very happy with this board - so far very good.

Cons: Only one case fan header and it is on the front edge of the board - need a very long wire or extension to reach rear case fan. Would have been nice to have the faster SATAIII interface, but this is known when buying this board.

Other Thoughts: I got the newer version of the board - some pictures show a board with blue CPU bracket and slots - mine is all black and looks great. I used a low power Athlon II 250e CPU with lower TDP and slower bus speeds than the new FX CPUs - so I'm seeing very low temps.

UNITEK Y-3042 USB 3.0 Super Speed 4-Port Hub with on/off Power Switch & 5V/4A US Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Has worked perfectly for over a year - I just plugged it in and it has worked every single time since. Works with and without power adapter. Will even power my USB powered scanner without the power adapter so it must not use much power itself and is able to direct all the computer's USB port power to any one of the ports on the front.

Cons: I haven't found any. I wouldn't mind if it was a little heavier so that it didn't move around on the desktop as much when plugging something in like a version with the power supply built in or a detachable weighted base - but that is really looking for some way this could be improved!

Other Thoughts: My third Unitek purchase and I am now officially impressed with their products - first class stuff!

GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Built another computer with this board - using FX-6300, 16GB of Corsair RAM, SSD / HDD pair of drives and Antec PSU. Build and loading Win7 64bit when smoothly - system is running very well. Easily clocked RAM to higher speed.

Cons: None really. Only has SATAII ports but that is in the board specs

Other Thoughts: I will be using this board to update all my family's PCs so that they can use Win7 (RIP WinXP)
