She's doing great 2/28/2009 2:18:18 AM

Pros: For the price of this mobo I'm quite pleased. My Phenom 940 is currently managing 3672Mhz prime stable at 18x204 1.525vcore 68C (hot!). LIke the extra PCI-X slots

Cons: Spacing between the CPU slot and memory is small. Unable to mount memory cooler. Reset CMOS jumper hard to reach. Does not have SLI capability.

Memory Compatibility Issues 2/27/2009 6:25:09 PM

Pros: Has lots of sata ports and built in functionality (video, sound, raid etc). Good price I suppose

Cons: Cannot get dual channel memory configuration to work. Bought ram listed on Gigabyte web site as compatible (Geil, exact model number listed on Gigabyte web site) 4 2gig dimms (8gig total). Only works with one dimm or two dimms in single channel config (which isn't a config mentioned in the manual). With all four dimms or dual channel config with 2 dimms will not post, no video, no beeps nothing. I wouldn't not purchase this mobo if you want easy ram installation/configuration.

Overall Review: I'm still hoping to find a solution to my ram woes but in the mean time I would recommend you find another board. This was my first board from Gigabyte after being a loyal Asus patron. I will be switching back unless I can get this fixed.

Just works and no problems 2/27/2009 5:12:39 PM

Pros: Constructed like a tank, nice Caps and no problems. Liked the first one so much I bought a second one for my standby. Have built several systems over the years, and would not think twice about buying another Gigabyte. No joke, no bull, just true. Running a 9850 BE oc to 3.0 on XP, and a 5400+ BE oc to 3.1 on W7 with just clock changes. Both systems fired up with no problems.

Cons: None

Great Board with low price 2/24/2009 5:42:56 PM

Pros: Accepts new Phenom II CPUs, Ultra Durable with solid caps, lots of connections and easy setup.

Cons: Disabling onboard sound in the Bios in order to use an M-Audio Revolution results in a device manager exception "PCI Standard PCI to PCI Bridge" related to audio. I did not search for a solution, just went with onboard for now.

Overall Review: On advice from AMD, new BIOS's do not offer the ganged memory option (single 128 bit channel). Properly installed dual channel memory will now always run unganged (two 64 bit channels).

If you use Q-Flash from a bootable floppy or thumb drive, the new flash utility copied with the BIOS file begins flashing without user input. Be sure not to interrupt the process.
