5* Good motherboard
Reviewed by Anonymous on 23/05/2015
I've been running this motherboard for over a year now, with Windows 7. Set-up was easy, and there have been zero problems. It's often running 24/7 continuously.
1* No post, no bleeps, no love
Reviewed by Dan on 23/01/2014
Same as other review and seemingly across the internet with this particular motherboard

Spent a week getting in 3 of every other part (CPU/GPU/RAM/PSU/SSD) to test and still wouldn't post

Had another gigabyte and it worked fine. Not sure I can ever go back after this frustration :(
1* Poor quality
Reviewed by Roy on 16/01/2014
Built new system using this motherboard but it wouldn't POST. Bought a replacement MSI board after RMA this one and system worked perfectly. I've been building systems for 20 years and this is only the second time I've had a new board that wouldn't POST and both times were made by GigaByte. Stick to MSI/Asus in future
