GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works - Kinda. . . .
Bought this as a DIY Kit for a customer; but the lack luster performance was so bad; I was embarrassed to even give it to a paying customer.

Cons: Obvious Graphics issues, and pathetic performance when parred with the AMD A6-5400K Trinity Processor. Either this board has serious problems, or the AMD Processor is defective; I'll find out when I get time to install another CPU.

Other Thoughts: I ended up throwing this loser system in the closet and just
started over by using a Joe~Schmo Dual-Core Intel chip. At least I was able to save the 8-GB of RAM!

AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This CPU was included with a DIY kit that I purchased from Newegg last month; the kit also had a GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H FM2+ and 8-GB HyperX Fury Black Series.
The price is the plus part - - - - But performance wise; I don't think so!

Cons: With that said; I expected better performance than I am currently experiencing; either this chip stinks - - - - - or there is something seriously wrong with my DIY kit.
Video performance is lackluster as far as I’m concerned, and desktop office performance is just adequate to do basic tasks.

Other Thoughts: I probably won't be using this Processor again; just not enough horsepower for me...

Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: While it worked - - - - - it worked great!

Cons: Windows started giving me drive error messages after 1 year and
2 months of use.

Other Thoughts: I ran the Seatools Diagnostics software, and it reports SMART failure
and imminent Drive failure...
