GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-HD3 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: great board as said in previous review

Cons: these rebate companies are crooks!!!
they will not send your rebate
always take a digital image of all paperwork
i can't believe they can get away with this

Other Thoughts: the only way to get your rebate is to keep calling and tell them u have a pic of all the proof needed......... then they will finally send it

1 out of 5 eggs will not retain bios settings 05/08/2014

This review is from: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: received as gift brand new,after setting up bios found that after pulling the power plug (from psu) the bios would revert back to 2008... ipurchased a new cmos battery....same..... i updated the bios to the newest version ...same
could not send back because it was after the 30 day mark

Cons: thats when the fun starts (dealing with asus support)
the 1st girl i called (from taiwan???) should not even be allowed to answer the tech support phone let alone try and help "customers"
after returning the motherboard to jeffersonvilee indiana on my dime $18) they sent my board back saying "it was burn't and they replaced some hardware"
i find this very hard to believe on a brand new board that i had powered up for an hour
anyway as soon as i booted into the bios it was....yep ..2008
i set the date went thru the usual save settings...unplugged and back to 2008

Other Thoughts: i called asus support again and asked a guy what if this happens after the second repair its the same,can i get a new board???
his answer..... we will repair it a 3rd time!!!!!
remember this is a brand new mobo
this is dissapointing, i mean its not hard to see if the repair is successful, the tech only needs to pull the power plug and see if the date is correct...right!
