GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper A88X FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Green ascetic lights are fun. Good combo with the blue from my PSU. Connections are simple and no real praises for the board it is well a mobo and works.

Cons: After the 0 luck start up because of an out-of-date bios it is good now. I was contacted by Gigabyte threw my 1egg review of the bios issue. At no cost to me, other than time, I sent it for RMA and it came back with the Bios updated. Issue resolved.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte took care of my complaint with the mobo when it arose. It did take quite a bit of time and as of the status I was informed that nothing was wrong. I did not get anything in the way of tracking for return. Other than that all is well now.

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri Quad-Core 3.7 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD785KXBJABOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Chip runs great. Much better than what I replaced it with. Video is astounding within Skyrim.

Cons: Upon delivery I had issues with my mobo of choice. Had to RMA the mobo to get the compatible bios installed. So be aware if you get all yout setup complete and it wont prompt, this may be your issue. Either another compatible chip can be used for an update or RMA for an up-to-date bios.

Other Thoughts: Replaces a 8600GTS and Core2Duo 3.0 so leaps and bounds better performance from both. Con was just bad luck on getting an old bios on the board this is why it gets a 4 not a 5.

GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper A88X FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy setup

Cons: Product ships with an extremely outdated BIOS that does not support many processors. What needs to be done to fix is buy a chip the is supported by the lowest bios, perform a bios update then replace the chip and return the cheap one. I have not performed this as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Will not work out of the box unless your APU is within the supported hardware for the shipped BIOS version.

Not supported sence V1 or 2 :
A10 - 7850K; 7700K; 6790K
These three are supported from V5 - 6.
So I can say this will be the trend as chips progress for support on this board.
