Died for no reason

Pros: Had a problem with installation, cleared CMOS and it worked fine for almost 5 years.

Cons: For no reason, it started having the same boot recycle problem may of the other users have noted. Boots for 3 second, shuts for 3 seconds.

Other Thoughts: Set it up with clean power and it ran for many years. Stopped using it much and it sat idle for months. Now, dead when trying to use again.

Nice Board if its wasn't defective

Comments: The early Intel HD Graphics drivers were acting buggy and win7 Action Center insisted on updating them at least a couple times I think. So now I need to find some version that is stable and I can force to work with the HDTV.

As for the software interface even when the HDMI worked the audio still had to be manually switched in software to the HDTV using the win7 sound interface. Not terrible, but difficult for computer illiterates. It appears Intel is more concerned with selling the new 2k series fully integrated CPU's with GPU while leaving the original CPU/GPU hybrids owners with sub-par drivers.

Wonky

Pros: Went in easily. Looks great.

Cons: Nearly cost me my sanity. Bought two of these. Both exhibit the reboot cycling. Both quit that, but now they won't power down completely. Only way to get them back up is to disconnect power supply, wait 10 seconds and start them up again.

That means they won't work at at for the two HTPC units I built at Christmas. Been trying really hard to find a fix online, but everyone is clearly just guessing.

Other Thoughts: I own a gaming center and we have had great luck with Gigabyte products. Except, naturally, for the two I bought for my family.

I am going to try to RMA these as they are terrible. Not sure what NE will do, but they've always treated me right.

30 days later...

Pros: After >30 days of continuous use this board is still working perfectly (prior review 12/18/10). With the build described on 12/18/10, the current >30days-of-use (100% stock settings, nothing OC'd) overall WEI is 6.6 (constraint being the ASUS GDU at 6.6 & 6.6), with the Intel i5-760 and Mushkin HDD both scoring a 7.3, and the 2x4gb Gskill DDR3 1333 RAM scoring a 7.5. The Mushkin SSD (using the ATTO Bench32 R/W software) is currently testing ~234 Mbps Read and ~239 Mbps Write...which I'm more than happy with (it's still way better than any single HD out there that spins and isn't set up as a RAID).

This board is running strong as the cornerstone of a way more than satisfactory PC running the OS & programs with all of the data files on a WHS-2003 file server.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: In reading some other reviews it sounds like I should have gone into the BIOS before installing the Win 7 OS to choose the ACHI setting (instead of the IDE)...don't know if or how much that may have racheted down the Mushkin Callisto SSD's performance, but I'm very happy with the 234/239 Mbps on ATTO's Bench32, so I'm going to let that one go.

I'm running a Gigabyte LGA 775 motherboard in my WHS and it's been going strong for 14+ months now with no hiccups or convulsions, so in my admittedly very limited experience with Gigabyte boards (a sample size of one before this one) I have no reason to expect any different from this GA-H57M board...hopefully that expectation is not just blissful ignorance - time will tell.

But at least I can say that the build, install and first 30 days have been great.

Good, but picky

Pros: Compact, full featured, works well when you get it to work

Cons: Extraordinarily picky and confusing to set up

Other Thoughts: As others have said, this thing is easy to send into an infinite loop of rebooting. There are a few things you MUST pay attention to. Others have posted some of the tricks. I'll collect all of them in one place:

1. The motherboard is inflexible about memory stick insertion. You MUST insert them in specific ways that vary depending on how many modules you have. Consult the manual for a table with the order in which slots must be filled.

2. The manual claims you only need the 8 Pin power supply to the rear of the cpu slot if you have a high powered cpu. That is not true. But only the four pins closest to the CPU are 12 V lines. So if you have a four pin hanging around from your power supply but not an 8 pin, it will still work.

3. Gigabyte's product info is very confusing about which CPUs are supported in which ways. There is an insert in the box that says only i3 and i5 graphics are supported. That is not true. All Clarkdale chips are supported, including the Pentium version.

Should have listened

Pros: Lots of features

Cons: All features DOA

Other Thoughts: I should have listened. I also got the 1 second on, 5 seconds off power cycle. I tried Kento's fix and I got instead a 10 seconds on, 5 seconds off power cycle

As far as I'm concerned, this mb doesn't work. Gigabyte should be ashamed. I bought this because of my experience with two desktops, one Windows, one Linux, built around their motherboards, but this one is simply trash.

Good Mobo

Pros: I like most everything about this board. I guess I'm really proud I built this comp myself and didn't have too many issues (I forgot to connect the power supply to the video card, that's it) and I got it to work...unlike so many people in the reviews here. The instructions have beep codes. The instructions tell you how RAM is supposed to go. I just connected everything I could and it was fine.

Cons: No 6Gbps SATA :(

That's really the only thing. I wish I did more research and bought a similar board to this but with some 6GBps SATA ports. Oh well, next computer, I guess. And I don't transfer that much data anyways...

Other Thoughts: The PCI-e slot is reeeeally close to one SATA port (the first SATA port) so it's a close squeeze. Not a big deal though.
