Experience: 7 Months


Good Overclock-er
Decent set of features for price
Only one PCIE x16
Great entry level motherboard. Was able to run a 450 MHz FSB with ease (haven't tried to go higher since my RAM is limiting me).

Only buy if you plan to always use 1 video card as it only has 1 slot.

Experience: 20 Days


Fast, Lots of space, Good for one GPU setup.
None so far, except for the software on CD was not functional, It was not needed.
Great Motherboard, easy to install and setup. Bios easy to interpret and comes with cd packed with drivers and some useless software. Installed with GTS250 gpu 4gig corsair ddr2 cheapy ram xfi sound card corsair 520w psu. System runs smooth about 20 seconds boot up from power off to windows. Running dual Operating systems just fine.(XP+Vista Prem).

Experience: 2 Days


Works smoothly
none thus far
Bought it to put in my HTPC so I wouldn't have to buy a sound card. no probs whatsoever installing it. haven't checked out overclocking yet but I'm sure it'll do great seeing all the other reviews.

Experience: 5 Months


Lots of usb pots, easy install
Watch what memory you use with this mother board.
Corsair twin2x4096 memory will not work at 1066 with this mother board. Had to reduce to 800.Other than that great mother board!

Experience: 20 Days


Easy and painless install. Very quick motherboard and upgrade. Easy to upgrade bios
none that I can think of
Great motherboard! Bought it to replace a gigabyte k8ns ultra 939 board. Very easy to install, lots of USB ports right on the back panel, and comes with HDMI port. Together with an Intel E7400, this system is lightening fast when compared to the older system.

Experience: 1 Months


tones of USB ports and Sata internal connectors
nothing at all
its a great budget board with decnt overclocking ability...what more can you ask for at that price. It has lots of USB ports and Sata connectors. Also the extra USB onboard connectors is always a plus.

Experience: 1 Months


Rock solid, stable
None that I can think of
This motherboard is SOLID. I mean, physicaly solid! It is thicker that most motherboard I used!

It is also really stable and made with good components.
There is also a seperate gigabyte RAID chip on it that can be really useful.

I really have nothing bad to say about it!

Experience: 12 Months


Good overclock abilities , nice BIOS .
None .
Solid motherboard .
A lot of features , good overclocker , easy to install .
Everything worked perfect out of the box , detected my CPU immediately , no need for BIOS updates .

Experience: 2 Weeks


Brand name, high quality assembled, tons of options.
Bought this mobo to replace my old Gigabyte mobo who was damaged during relocation. It's very good mobo, it has everything you need except crossfire. Tons of USB ports, lots of tweaks and options, what more can I say, with the price match of 127 after taxes its was a steal. Higly reccomended.


Experience: 8 Months


It's pretty.
Motherboard has abnormally long post times.
I push the power button and the PC hangs for 45 seconds before I start to see the BIOS loading. I have tried multiple different BIOS revisions but continue to have the same issues.
