GIGABYTE GA-880GM-D2H (REV. 3.1) AM3+ AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This has been a great board so far. It supported the FX 4100 out of the box with no issues so far. The Northbridge has been fluctuating between 48C and 49C at idle.

Cons: If you run a bulky graphics card you will find that the SATA ports are a little hard to get to, but if you hook up your SATA equipment before your graphics card it works out well. When I installed the board and booted windows I used the driver disk That came with the board to install my Ethernet and sound controllers and got a blue screen when I restarted the computer. The problem was a simple fix, uninstall the audio driver if you get a blue screen and do not install the audio driver from the disk. Also you will find that one of the mounting screws are located right under the northern RAM tabs. It was a bit of a pain to get to, but it all worked out well.

Other Thoughts: All in all the board installed very well to my case and everything booted up pretty smooth. If you get a blue screen on the first boot into Windows Format the HDD and reinstall a fresh copy of Windows and everything will work out fine. I don't understand why this board has taken so much flak from the buyers, (I guess I must have gotten the perfect board.) but this is an excellent board to buy if you are on a budget and need a quick board for your FX series Processor.
