Great micro atx motherboard with 4 slot of ram, 8 pins for cpu, enough to run mini gaming pc, htpc or office build. The gigabyte board have great warranty and the board have humidity protection.
I built a pretty stripped gaming machine with this board. I don't overclock so it was affordable with the features I wanted. I'm very happy about the four memory slots giving me some freedom to upgrade down the line.
absolutely no compliant with this mobo. paired it up with an i3-3225 and a SSD and my new built flies. everything almost running default after installed and setting adjustments are user friendly. excellent mobo at this price.
Bought this as a budget board to replace friends dead PC. Was looking for value vs price and this seemed to be it. Decent features for a budget board, and a user friendly bios. Two possible concerns, and they are relatively minor. Aside from this the board has been outstanding.
