Experience: 1 Months


Excellent mobo tons of great features, combined it with a Phenom II 965 CPU and 4 Gigs of Patriot DDR3 RAM
Gigabyte are great products I am using more of them all the time I like their mobo's better than the newer ASUS boards! They run cooler than most other boards must be all that extra copper!! :-)

Experience: 1 Days


Solid build, ability to unlock extra core, stable, 8 sata ports. have back plane for the extra two sata ports.
like the other buyers mentioned, the board doesn't reach to 3rd set of mounting scrren and sata port position may be problem to some computer case but these are minor.
Good motherboard....Athlon X4 620 boot up at 250mhz FSB, stable, I bought the open box to save a few bucks, this is a great board for AM3 cpu espeically Phenom II since this board is 140w certified.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Worked right out of the box - All the standard features you need
Strange dimensions? SATA cables with clips
Excellent motherboard however it doesn`t reach the standard ATX pins for the right side of my case(I`m assuming it`s the board that`s off and not the case) - Making it dangerous to instal the 24pin PSU connection as the board has free space behind it (bends).

The sata cables are the ones with clips on them - Which becomes a pita if you have a small case and lots of sata devices, this is a not a fault as other people consider this a good feature to have on sata cables as they can`t become disconnected without someone pressing down on the clip.

Overclocks well and have had nearly no issues with it.

Experience: 7 Days


Unlockable board
None at all
I got this motherboard on the offchance that I can unlock my x2 550 into a quad. Got it, unlocked my 550 and now I great a great quad core on the cheap. Thank you gigabyte and AMD.

Experience: 1 Months


Solid and stable with excellent bios options.
Only x8 crossfire.
Unlocked my Phenom II X2 550 to a Phenom II X4 B50 3.6ghz stable at 1.4V with lots of room to overclock even more. My last board was a socket 939 DFI Lanparty Ultra-D that I modded to support SLI, and this Gigabyte is an excellent replacement.

Experience: 6 Days


Easy to install, cheap, does DDR3.
The included manual was indispensable for newbies.
Difficult to cable some parts due to layout.
Worked right out of the box, and included a ton of cables and screws; Installation of RAM and CPU were easy. I really liked the included manual, really everything a first timer like myself needed to install everything.

Cabling the USB ports, case power buttons and LEDs, and SATA drives was difficult, because they were cramped down in the bottom of the board where there is the huge obstructions of your PCI cards, and your power supplies. I had to take them out to plug in the cables, and even then, they were so far away that it was an extremely close thing that they reached, to the point where they pulled out sometimes. It wouldn't have been possible at all if I had to put something in the COM slot.

Experience: 1 Months


Looks like bubblegum. Supports DDR3, X-fire, etc, etc...
Tall ram will block many heatsinks.
Looks like bubblegum. Supports DDR3, X-fire, etc, etc...

Tall ram will block many heatsinks. But... The COOLERMASTER 212 HYPER PLUS (don't forget the "plus") fits this mobo perfectly, keeps my stock 720BE at 25/35C (no-load/full-load), and doesn't block the ram.

Great board for my first build.

Experience: 1 Days


gigabyte brand
no 3x-4x crossfire
I bought this motherboard for my friend's rig, it is used for 4870 x 2 crossfire. Its good paired with the amd phenom x4 955. I had to buy this motherboard since we are using ddr3 1600 and it is well supported. I flashed the bios to newest version. Its a good motherboard I would recommend over 200$ ones, because it will do the same job or almost.

Experience: 10 Days


Good quality board
Got this board for my 945 AMD, so far extremely satisfied
especially with the eSATA ports and the amount of available ports to use.
only thing I can complain about is the position of the SATA Ports on the board. Depending on the case you have this can be problematic.
other then that.. all is good.

Experience: 3 Months


Whole lot of motherboard at a low price.
16x8 crossfire might be a bummer for some.Dog vomit color scheme.
Running a 720be in this board,would definitely buy again.Great board for those on tight budgets.If your just going to run one video card this is all you need,no need for a 790fx board.
