Most Favorable Review
GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Has my E5200 running at 3.2GHz all voltages are at auto. RAM running at 853MHz (from 800). I'm sure it can go higher but I haven't tried.

Cons: North bridge gets a way too hot. Slow GMA 3100 graphics Only one IDE. But that's not too important.

Overall Review: I bought it months ago and price hasn't changed.

Most Critical Review

Not what's advertised

OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1066LV4GK
OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1066LV4GK

Pros: It was cheap.

Cons: Newegg says it runs at 7-7-7-20 @ 1.65v. Why would they tell me this and then send me RAM that's 8-8-8-24 @ 1.5v? I set the timings manually and everything was stable but I just can't stand 1066MHz RAM having to be set manually.

It works but constantly overheats

Pros: When it's working it does the job. Currently paired with the HK 16BQ theater speaker set.

Cons: It has massive heat sinks inside and plenty of ventilation yet it constantly over heats and enters a protection mode of lowered volume to compensate. On top of that it constantly shuts itself off when audio is paused for more than a few minutes. There's an auto-sleep timer that can be disabled or set to 1-8 hours. Seems to outright ignore this setting no matter what.

Overall Review: Then there's HK support. They'll say its working as designed and despite being a 1 week old unit their only solution is for a 3rd party repair center for help. That's not going to happen, I'll just return it.

Pros: 20 pin to 24 pin works. Didn't give me any problems.

Cons: Wasn't free shipping. That added an extra $5.99 to it.

Overall Review: It's too long but oh well.

Sweet
