5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I originally purchased an ASUS sabertooth 990fx and had nothing but problems with the board, after much frustration I looked at the positive reviews with this gigabyte board and thought how can I go wrong for a $120 board. I haven't had any issues with this board and I'm extremely satisfied! I have water-cooled Processor which plugged and played flawlessly (no need to tweak bios settings) I strongly recommend this over any other board, even the high end asus boards...

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsWould Buy again

Pros: A great board and has always done what I wanted. On my original purchase the ethernet port went bad. It was only a few weeks before the warranty was to expire. Gigabyte did the RMA mo questions asked after I gave them the problem details, and with a fast turnaround sent my original board back completely fixed. Im still using it right now about another year and half later. I only use an FX-6100 cpu but it does everything I need and plays every game Ive tried.
Im about to upgrade my wife's computer and plan to use this board again.

Cons: The only issue was that after almost 2 years of daily use the ethernet port on the board failed. However Gigabyte was more than helpful with fixing the board and getting it back to me. So the "con" kind of ends up a "pro".

Other Thoughts: I would recommend it because of performance and Gigabyte's good service.

1 out of 5 eggsNew egg lost a customer

Pros: not a bad board on a budget

Cons: if you can get one that works

Other Thoughts: The motherboard itself is not a bad month for it supports USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 and SLI it's a good board for cheap build my main problem is with new egg they sent me 2 bad motherboards in a row and I rushed ordered the first one in the first place then because.so I got tired of waiting for all this RMA cr4p to get all over with I put the other board on my credit card for a replacement and they were not going to charge me. Then I get an e-mail a couple days later after they received the motherboard saying that they will, charge me within three days if I didn't give them the box that came with the motherboard the motherboard was no good I had the two boxes on my workbench and I mistakingly picked the wrong box to send back so my wife had seen that my computer was working and decided she was gone I cleaned the place up and threw the box away so new egg is now going to charge my card for a motherboard that doesn't even work they said I could RMA it back with gigabyte but I don't even need the motherboard anyway this whole process is been nothing but a hassle I will not spend another penny with new egg you would think a company that makes millions of dollars a year with have the common courtesy to try to work with you seein that you been a loyal customer for years now I would rather spend a couple dollars extra then to be treated like this good buy new egg you will never see another penny from me !.

1 out of 5 eggsNice board if it worked

Pros: Specs look good. Board looks great Components well laid out, etc.

Cons: It arrived DOA.. Other then that, it's a great board.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't make up my mind between this board and an MSI 990FXA-GD80. Good thing I bought the MSI also otherwise I'd be waiting for an RMA

1 out of 5 eggsFlawed Board

Pros: Good Board but DOES NOT work well with the FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz processor. Even Gigabyte said that.

Cons: Again, do NOT use this board with the FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz processor. BSOD all over the place.

4 out of 5 eggsOne Thing to Think About

Pros: Working well after almost a year of ownership.

Cons: I heard from a well educated individual that gigabyte boards were glued together with some sort of paste and they usually fried in 1-2 years after the warranty expired. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I hope that it's false information cause I own one now.

Other Thoughts: Time will tell if anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Board

Pros: This board has everything I could want. I am NOT an overclocker but I can see how it would be easy for those that are.

Cons: I am having random BSOD and are troubleshooting it. MSDN bugcheck SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M. Says its in my Super Speed USB 3.0 Host Controller but I do not have one.. so not sure.. I do know that my front USB 3 header has a bad cable.. so I am in contact with Case Maker to replace it

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Sleek, good design
Easy to Install
Does everything I need it to do

Cons: No Motherboard Power LED, which would have been useful when my PSU died out, but nothing to dissuade me from a full rating.
