5 out of 5 eggsLike a well oiled machine.

Pros: I am not overclocking. Been up and running for 6 months without any issues whatsoever.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: FX6300 with an older GSO video card. I dabble with Blender, C4D and After Effects and this thing runs cool as a cucumber with the STOCK CPU fan. With my old MSI mobo and quad core AMD (and high dollar fan/heat sink) I could smell it cooking under heavy rendering loads. This setup is 1000% better and cooler. Would recommend. I have run this rendering for over an hour with all 6 cores maxed at 100% and have yet to break 40 degrees C.

5 out of 5 eggsGiga

Pros: Looks nice. Features are nice. On board sound does not hiss. AMD. Durable enough to stand up to mother nature, mostly.

Cons: Not 100% effective against lightning.

Other Thoughts: Got hit in a lightning storm, only fried the apparatus that holds the LAN and USB 3 ports. Had to plug my HD dock in to a pleb USB 2 port and install my backup LAN card. Would buy again.

2 out of 5 eggsQuite Disappointed

Pros: Games well, performance is excellent when paired with the FX-9350
Solid board when doing the basics, turn it on when you want to use it, turn it completely off when you're done with it (that's kind of a problem, I'll get to it below).
Attractive & functional-ish heatsinks on chipset & VRMs don't stick out from the board. SATA connectors are flushmount.
PCI-E x1 slot is above video card slots, so it's usable, and you can Crossfire. (Looking at you, ASUS)
Black + Gunmetal + Silver + Gray color scheme.

Cons: Issue #1: System does not wake from sleep or hibernation.
Tried a few different CPUs, RAM sets, video cards, and PSU. Once asleep, In order to get the system to boot at all, I have to disconnect power. Then when it does boot, it's not a *resume* boot but an emergency clean boot. I've found multiple sources outlining the same issue - Am@zon, Hard|Forum, overclock.net - other people are having the same issue that I'm having.

Issue #2: "lose" 200MB System RAM to... what?
Windows 7 System Profile says "Installed memory (RAM) 8.00 GB (7.81GB usable). Not a major gamechanger, I'd just like to know what engineering trick necessitated this. I highly doubt this "legacy" configuration of setting aside system memory for internal components such us BIOS, OS, and other onboard devices is still an issue for today's chipsets and BIOS - unless GIGABYTE wanted to cut a corner and pass the savings onto the consumer.

Other Thoughts: Used to be when I bought a Gigabyte motherboard, I knew *relatively* what I was going to get.
This is dissapoint.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great, solved my issues

Pros: Easy setup, well labeled. I was having frequent crashes, as my old MB decided to not like my memory. Replaced with this MB and have none of the issues, even with the same memory.

Cons: none for me

1 out of 5 eggsDisapointed

Pros: Good price and great performance.

Cons: Issues. System won't wake from sleep/hibernation. This was a high end HTPC used for OTA tv recording, movie storage, audio conversion and movie conversion. I neede to have 3TB drives and my old GA-EP45UD3P would not recognize that large a drive. I paired this with an 8 core CPU and the performance was great. Fast conversion times and cool CPU. but the ability to record over the air TV is a problem when the system won't wake up. Multiple reviews I've read here, toms and Am**on state people are having the same problem I'm having. You have to pull power to get it to wake up. I needed a machine that Sleeps and wakes to record for media center and I miss programs weekly due to this glitch. No answer from tech all services after a week. I'm looking for a replacement now that I've found the problem. (After replacing power supplies, video cards and a UPS thinking it was a peripheral device causing the problem, wasted money)
