4 out of 5 eggs does not play well with others 09/06/2013

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-880GA-UD3H AM3 AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: looks nice, lots of features, sata III seems solid lots of bells and whistles

Cons: had stability issues with raid cards blue screens

had a hot point rocket raid 2720gl eight lane controller it crashed the worst with that. switched to an adaptec RAID 6805E. that card ran better but still it gave me random bluescreens. i dont know what caused the conflicts the memory access or the onboard graphics but it was not a happy build for me. its back to asus for me.

Other Thoughts: for the price it should have performed better and should not have conflicted with the add on raid.

Pros: has that furniture look for a htpc styled like a old time radio. front ports are convenient.

Cons: as on reviewer put it shoddy construction. it was anything but a joy to put a full size atx board in. one standoff was missing. the wood aspect left little to shied the computer components and the wood resonates with every seek of the hard drive. anything but a silent build. with a little more effort and quality parts it would be a nice case. the beauty here is only skin deep and the ugliness is to the bone on the inside.

Other Thoughts: its really good looking on the out side if you do a little extra work on it it might work for you. I suggest you don't put the hard drive caddy in place till you route wires and completely do the wiring. dont use the screws they provide to mount the hard drive caddy. they strip easily. if you have add on cards you have to remove the black plastic strip above the io plates. remove the back fan before you try to install the board. an awl to start the hole for the screws using the slotted holes on the drive holder will go a long way using your own screws which should be longer will help save some aggravation, you may want some wood glue to seat the screws with and metal brackets to reinforce the ledges the drive caddy rests on.
