5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: Nice looking (if you like black). Good variety of I/O ports.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got this board to go with AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz and it works great. Haven't tried any of the overclocking features and maybe never will. Runs fast and cool so far.

The only negative I might say is that the UEFI BIOS isn't as clean as what I’ve seen from ASRock; but I don't spend much time in the BIOS, so not a big deal.

Also considered an ASRock "Killer" board; but heard lots about heat problems, specifically on the Northbridge. Got Rev 4.0 of this board, and there is a nice heatpipe for the Northbridge. So far it's running cool (30C) with just the stock CPU cooler and 5 case fans. Probably will add water cooling in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but could be better.

Pros: Works great with my 8350. Blazingly fast. Ample expansion room. Boots fast with my SSD. Budget-friendly.

Cons: USB 3.0 drivers (at least for Win7) are questionable. Sometimes they simply will not recognize something until you swap ports or reboot. Also has a tendency to tell you to plug the item into a USB 3.0 port even though you have already done so.
RAID for me is fickle. Luckily I don't boot from my array, but sometimes it will just disappear until I reboot. Other times I'll get a bluescreen and checkdisk has to go through the array on reboot.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: over clocks amazingly and a good price. id gladly buy this again if i had to.

Cons: theres two heat sinks which are connected together with a pipe on the north bridge. it gets very very hot to the touch but i have my system fans blowing on it to keep it cool.

and for whatever reason i cant use speedfan to control the fans that i have plugged to the mobo. i have to use easy tune 6 to control the cpu fan. the rest of the fans are on one setting. they scale together which is stupid. best to get a fan controller to fix that.

1 out of 5 eggs2nd Board Down

Pros: Great Price

Cons: NB overheats

Other Thoughts: This is my second board after having to RMA the first one to Gigabyte. The NorthBridge is currently over heating again. I have not overclocked anything on the board as of yet and may not be able to at this rate.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Buy!

Pros: No hassle installation, no errors

Cons: None that I have seen.

Other Thoughts: In my past experience with motherboards this was the easiest setup I've done. I anticipated having to take all night to get it to work but after installation my PC went straight to Windows on startup. I was very happy with the purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsOld drivers and BIOS

Pros: Board features are nice. UEFI.

Cons: Gigabyte doesn't seem very serious about support with this product. The drivers were out of date and the BIOS was several versions behind. On boot my board displayed a message that the BIOS was corrupted. I tried using the "easy" BIOS flashing utility in the UEFI, but the files hosted on Gigabyte's web page were all invalid. Support emailed me direct links, and those were also invalid. Support overall was slow and did not seem to take English language help very seriously. RMA'd.

Other Thoughts: Board isn't bad, but with the level of support, it's a gamble. Saved by Newegg's support and return policy.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Never got the chance to try it out

Cons: Well what more can i say than that it was dead on arrival. After trying numerous working video cards, ram configurations and cpu s since i refused to believe that this board was the problem. But after using an old mobo to check the new parts i have ordered it turned out that this mobo was the issue.

Other Thoughts: I am in the process of shipping it back to newegg for hopefully a refund and am very disappointed in this board as i wanted to try it out for the first time. I will be going back to the ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX for future builds as i have in the past and will spend the extra $$$.

1 out of 5 eggslasted 2years

Pros: This board will support multiple cards at 16 speed and looks nice.

Cons: will only support 2dimm slots when your ram is 1800 or higher. Board overheats with normal gamming, Northridge and vmr get so hot it shuts down my computer! If I had known this was going to happen 2 years ago I wouldn't have bought it. I'm very disappointed I bought this board with plans to gradually upgrade with better components as I could afford them. I now have things where I want them and my board craps out. I'm running an Fx6300 no overclock and a R9270x 4gig card nothing too fancy and this board can't handle it. I'm upgrading to a saber tooth and 8 more gigs of 1866. Stay away from this board it will not last!
