Pros

Worked Without any problem on the first try, worth to buy it so far
Cons
For me the price is abit high but well it is the buyers decision to decide wether to buy or not.
Summary
I heard that this thing is not that great.but for more i really like it. I think it was what i wanted to be.

Pros

onboard video plays Warhammer online with full eye candy in 1280 by 1024. can maintain 1000MHZ GPU and 600 MHZ sideport memory freq with cooling and added voltage
Cons
it is what it is,no problems
Summary
This is a great little board with lots of options and solid CPU and IGP overclocking. With a reasonably fast processor and some IGP overclocking you can run many games, albeit at lower resolutions and detail levels. Seems to be very stable so far and I'm running a Zalman FB123 over the chipset to keep it cool. So far, so good.

Experience: 3 Days

Pros

Stable, HDMI vid and sound, Layout, Price, Excellent HTPC choice and for gaming if you want to add a video card. ATI chipset, Solid Capacitors.
Cons
Heatpiped cooled Video Card basically renders the 2 PCI slots useless. In other words I am using a USB wireless NIC but that's all I have as add-ons so it's no biggie!
Using the stock Video Card Cooler would have left the PCI's opened for cards if strickly used for an HTPC though so this really isn't an issue.
Summary
This board is doing double duty for me, in other words I'm using it as a bedroom HTPC plus I slapped a heatpipe cooled Radeon 4850 video card in it and I'm playing the latest games on 3/4's high settings with barely a noticeable sound coming from the PC! EXCELLENT!

Pros

small board fits almost any case
solid build,
very nice bios
lots of extras
Cons
the gskill 1066 i bought only runs at 800 the only lets it go to 2.1v
Summary
price matched for 110.00 good buy,,,for anyone looking for a board around the 100 mark,,i would highly reccomend this board the options are fairly extensive..cheers

Pros

HDMI output
Power for price
Good layout
Cons
1080p output
Summary
Great motherboard for my HTPC. Using it stock alone I am able to do 1080p output with around 5% cpu usage (sideport enable not that it really matters)

The one thing that happens is it does an initial red fuzz sort of like it will break on 1080p output. I dont know if this is the mobo or my TV (works with xbox360 1080p) but it only happens once an a while.

At first I saw artifacts on 1080p, that doesnt seem to happen anymore (which is wierd becuase the temps were low and are still the same)

My mobo might have just been a semi-lemon.

Plays TF2, CS:S and looks great at 720p, probobly wouldn't play at 1080p.

Overall I would buy it again.

Pros

HDMI
PCI-E 2.0
Solid Caps
Good Layout
Cool Running
Cons
No Weeknesses
Summary
I bought this motherboard for my first built and it is excellent.. i have had no troubles with it.. the nb and sb run nice and cool to the touch, i have my 5000+be overclocked to 3.1ghz from 2.6ghz at stock voltage.. just up the multiplyer... onboard graphics are decent for older games.. i have c&c generals maxed at 90fps and Delta Force Xtreme at about medium at 10-50fps. Good for casual gamers, excellent for movies ect. For the few extra dollars this board is excellent! Good Buy!

Pros

onboard video plays Warhammer online with full eye candy in 1280 by 1024. can maintain 1000MHZ GPU and 600 MHZ sideport memory freq with cooling and added voltage
Cons
Bloody heatsink attachment is pointing straight up and down instead of out the back of the case so no room for my ram in slots 1 and 2 had to use 3 and 4
Summary
fast, easy, and cheap way to get yourself up and running to play warhammer online.

I have a 5000+ black in it running at 3.1 (259fsb) and the OCZ reaper memory is running 4-4-4-12 at 849 MHZ.

I do suggest extra cooling(i have suspended panaflo fans over the chipsets) cause you will need to bumb up the voltages everywhere you can

Pros

Overclocks well, stable, lots of options in bios, IGP overclocks easily (800mhz), dual bios, good manual, form factor, Gigabyte quality
Cons
northbridge runs a little hot, driver disk seems a little screwed up, bad placement of PCIEx1
Summary
This is a great little board with lots of options and solid CPU and IGP overclocking.

Pros

-very stable
-miniATX with quality components
-great for overclocking
-amazing tweaking options, voltage adjustments, memory timings and everything under the sun
-great performance
-low cost
-no or very little electrical noise unlike other cheap MiniATX boards have when running game with a high end add in video card.
-overclocks well
Cons
-chipset runs very hot!
-Mosfets should have a heat sink
-cost more than other miniATX boards (but well worth the extra cost with component quality)
Summary
I recommend this motherboard, better cooling would certainly make me give this board 5 stars.

I have never seen a miniATX board of this quality with this many tweaking options. I'm using an HD4850 video card so there is no hybrid crossfire.

This is the first time I have used a Gigabyte motherboard in 4 years. So far I am impressed considering the past record I had using that brand. I did have an issue when trying to get the system to boot. The ram slots are very touchy, the ram appeared all the way in and I even reseated them twice but in the end I had to push the ram in harder than I would have liked. Otherwise everything went smoothly.
