Experience: 1 Years


-pretty much all the features a regular user/regular overclocker will need
-USB3, Sata3, Crossfire support
-mostly the layout of the board is how it should be
-runs cool with all the heatsinks on the board
-overclocks well once the BIOS is updated to F3
-good warrenty
-Wouldn't cold boot at CPU-NB over 2200mhz until I undated the BIOS to F3
-The audio connectors are in a weird place above the top PCI-E slow
-More fan connectors would of been nice.
-The Clear CMOS switch is places under the video card which was just horrible when I tried to get the CPU-NB to 2.6ghz since the board locked up every time.
pretty good board, no complains once you get it to work since it runs nice, cool and solid. I've had problems with the CPU-NB not being able to OC past 2.2ghz until I updated the bios to F3 which was a pain. The board would lock up every time and not post at all so i had to Clear Cmos like 10 times which bring me to my next complain: the position of the clear CMOS switch. My video card is 6970 and that fat thing covered the entire clear Cmos switch so i had to stick my screw driver in there with a flash light and hope I touch both of the pins for 2 seconds. Now that I oc'd the Phenom 965 to 4ghz on this board, i got no complains. I kind of blocked the horrible memories of OCing it and I'm just happy with the product now.

Now some positive stuff: Bios is very good and it's easy to change stuff and understand what you're doing. Crossfire is a useful feature, you never know if it's cheaper to just buy a second card in the future and get the same performance. Has USB3 which is faster as i noticed, SATA3, and layout of the board is original and how it should be.

Experience: 30 Days


Warranty, quality
Plenty of Sata ports
If you're looking for a great AMD AM3 socket board for your BE processors, look no further. 8 phases power will keep your processor rocking while overclocking it.

Great product, highly recommanded!

Experience: 2 Months


solid board, everything you need in a mobo, ddr3, sata3, usb3, crossfire, great color way, worked straight out of the box, a lot of options for overclocking
it won't fly me to the moon....and it might not support the new six core cpu's although I haven't checked, might just need a bios update , which I don't know how to do. another weakness, it won't teach me how to update  bios
after doing a lot of searching around my options came down to a asus mobo, a msi mobo and this one.

ultimately this one had the best reviews and from the spec sheets it had the most to offer, as a result I built my system around it, and my current specs plugged into this awesome board are.... amd phenom II 965 x4 3.4ghz, Gigabyte DDR3-1333 Ripjaws timings at 7-7-7-21, seagate 500gb sata hdd, samsung dvdrw, orignally had a corsair h50 installed, but last month I successfully oc'd to 4.0ghz stable and upgraded to a full water cooling loop, it's all run by corsair tx750w psu. stored inside a modded antec 300 mid tower case.... and that will be my next upgrade, it's very crowded in there.

Experience: 3 Months


Much better grounding than most MB.
Lots of settings in the BIOS + Dual BIOS.
Better reliability (50,000hrs at 40c) of capacitors and inductances.
Many Sata connectors (8 internal + 2 eSata)
Include two Sata 6gbps connectors.
3 years warrantly
Could provide more FAN connectors.
No onboard videocard (relevant only for servers).

Corsair XMS3 TWIN3X2048-1333C9 was runnning by default at 1066MHz (don't know if it is the memory XMS data that are wrong, but it was easy to change it to 1333MHz in the BIOS).
Works well with Linux, but they could presure some of their chipset manufacturers to offer better driver support in the official kernel, especially for the sensors.

I was looking for a reliable while cheap motherboard with plenty of Sata connectors for a server. I had to search for a while before finding what I was looking for, as I had to systematically reject any motherboard that had only a one year warrantly.

It was a very nice surprise when I found out about the "Ultra Durable 3" line of product of Gigabyte, and I think that most people underestimante the importance of impedance in the ground.

Finally, the two PCI-E 16 slots (running at x8 when used together) and the two Sata 6gbps will help to extends the useful life of the server.

Experience: 10 Days


quality, super durability i guess?
none that i can think of
As you can always expect from a gigabyte board, this board does inherit the good quality. sata III is good if you are using a super fast ssd or if you plan to. so is USB. in a word, it's worth the money. just look at all the features you get at this price.

Experience: 10 Days


power and cooling may worse than MSI
good quality, cooling is enough. BIOS is good designed, easy to OC. Recovery system is good.NEW founction USB3 AND SATA3 will be useful in future.

Experience: 14 Days


Nice layout
Nice design
Stay cool
Multiple crash at boot
Memory problem
You need to flash bios as soon as you get it. At first this mobo woul'nt boot windows with my G.Skill memory and thus crash at each attempt. I flashed the bios and forced the memory timing and since it has been fince but still you souldn't have to do this.

Experience: 1 Months


Overclocking options,price,look and thats it's Gigabyte
I've always been a fan of Gigabyte. Loaded windows no problem, no flashing needed. I used Gskill 1.5v just make sure you buy the ram the board specifies. This is a great motherboard Pair this with a Phenom II 965be, awesome combo.
