Good Motherboard and support

GIGABYTE GA-A75-UD4H FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Online Support was helpful for me. Had issue with Mushkin Enhanced Blackline PC3 12800 1.35volt 2x4gb memory. Had to update the bios, and the easytune software to get the correct memory settings to stay in bios. After that, everything has worked very well now for three months. Good it has 5 sata connectors (in this price range).

Cons: Didn't come with extra usb3 header (just the one the back connector). Four of the Sata connecters are at 90 degrees. If you have a small HTPC double check your clearance. It can be a pain if you have anything near it. I think their Easytune software could be improved a lot. I don't over clock but it would be better if they cut down the graphics and added more detailed control.

Cheap, low performance, but works fine

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Slow write speeds feels like a 4x Flash Memory chip inside. The slide feels flimsy, but that's why it was so cheap. I would only recommend this if you have plenty of time for the files to copy.

After some motherboard tweaking

Pros: Plugged in a GIGABYTE amd FM1 socket motherboard. I wanted low power for my HTPC. I have owned three months now. Would only work at 1333 til motherboard bios was updated (twice). Then I had to update Gigabytes software easytune. After a couple restarts working fine at 1600. Manual bios changes would not stay until bios was updated as well as the gigabyte software. I run a dual hd tuner, four hard drives HTPC on windows 7 64bit and I haven't had any memory problems after the initial updating of the Gigabyte motherboard and software. GIGABYTE GA-A75-UD4H FM1 AMD A75 is the motherboard.

Cons: Motherboard had to have bios updated to support lower voltage at 1600mhz. Strange that the software for Gigabyte had to be updated and ran once to get the bios settings to stay at the correct settings. More of a motherboard issue than memory, but after small updating the memory runs just fine so far.
