This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: BEST MOTHERBOARD I HAVE EVER BOUGHT. It's so solid, the rigidity is great. The northbridge heatsink is attached to a backplate, so you won't have any overheating chips on your motherboard.
It's SUPER Stable and VERY energy efficient. I shaved off 20-50 watts with this motherboard. REALLY good overclocker.
Default voltage core on a q6600 and got it from 2.4 to 3.2ghz using 8x multiplier and 400FSB so I got a 1600FSB..Amazing. VERY good onboard sound and I put windows 7, it's so good. I can say this is the best LGA 775 motherboard out there.
It's really solid for a really cheap price. EIGHT usb. count that, EIGHT usb, no more need for a usb hub. My old mobo only had 4 and I needed more so 8 is a GOOD deal.
I would recommend this to ANYONE needing a SOLID 775 board.
Does ALL the way DOWN to Celeron/Pentium all the way up to the new 45nm Wolfdale, and Clarkdale. It will do q9550 and e8600 flawlessly.
I made my q6600 last longer on this. I7 is way too much money, so ge
Cons: Sometimes when you do a bad overclock, it would randomly reboot and it would require a hard power down and a hard power up but it would say "Failed and due to overclocking settings were bad."
The CMOS Battery is in a REALLY bad location, underneath the top video card slot, if you have a SINGLE slot your good. But since MOST people have DUAL video card slot video cards, your video card blocks it off.
You don't really need to reset the CMOS, the BIOS has "Load Fail-Safe Defaults" and "Load Optimized Defaults."
That gets it to normal again. I think it has BIOS profiles when you reset your CMOS.
Other Thoughts: I had the error 10 LAN error, and a BIOS problem with overclocking, they need to fix those two things, and move the CMOS battery and it will be FLAWLESS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I used to have a 2gb G. Skill kit and I felt I needed to upgrade to a 4gb gaming kit.
I saw the beautiful heatspreaders they're great for dissipating the heat away. Makes sense since the fans wisk the heat away.
I popped in the 4096mb of ram and it automatically detected it at 4-4-4-12 timings at 1.9v I believe... I didn't even to do it. My ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard accepted it so if you have that motherboard get this memory.
Great memory haven't gamed on it yet but so far so good.
Will probably do a follow up review once I get my 9800gtx+ card from eVGA RMA.
Other Thoughts: None.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Outstanding quality in games. The THX mode makes games sound so real the bass and quality is outstanding this has one of the best movie like bass ever...The music can go really loud I recommend this... Music is pretty good too but it's better in games.
Cons: I wish the trebles were a bit higher on the two satellites :/
Other Thoughts: These are one of the best speakers I paid for.READ FULL REVIEW
