Cons: none

Pros: 4 usb 2.0 and 2 usb 3.0 at rear. excellant gigabyte quality. runs smooth and quick responsive. temp. 27 degree.
Comment:
Bought at Ncix landsdowne store with $10 mir, which is now on the way to me. Quality built through-out. 4 memory slots; 6 usb at rear; hdmi and dvi-d. On-board usb 3.0 plug-in for front panel. Super fast responsive and runs very smooth at very low temperature of 27 degree. Bios is rev.3 and well updated. My cpu processor is A8-6600K. No need to fresh bios. After installation of all hardware and kick start button, it lights on in one shot. I used this newly installed computer for almost 2 months, no any issue happened. This motherboard is truly reliable.Love it.

Cons: -Couldn't get it to boot with 2400mhz ram with A8 7600 processor

Pros: -Rev 3.0. Came with bios version F6-Easy to install. No issues-Lots of SATA3 ports-USB 3.0 header
Comment:
Couldn't get it to boot with 2400mhz ram with A8 7600 processor. I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the MB or the processor. MB says it supports 2400(OC). I have loosened the timings and couldn't get the computer to boot. But I am content at running at 2133.FYI, there have been some reviews where they couldn't get 2400 to work and some where they could.

Cons: getting this motherboard all correct drivers was difficult.

Pros: Good value for money
Comment:
Bought this motherboard with AMD x4 860K. Had to update  Bios to F7 and download USB3 & SM BUS drivers from 3rd party drivers as Gigabyte drivers on CD and site did not work. https://driverscollection.com/?H=GA-F2A88XM-D3H%20%28rev.%203.0%29&By=Gigabyte

Cons: -No VRM heatsinks, added my own for a few bucks-Had to have a shop update  BIOS for me with an older FM2 cpu that I didn't own, as I bought an 860k to go with it.

Pros: -Good Price-Good OC performance
Comment:
Price performance ratio is fantastic. After adding my own VRM heatsinks, have a daily stable OC of 4.5ghz on my 860k.Deducted a star for not having the BIOS needed to run the CPU it advertises to support.No problems, no complaints! HTPC/Gaming PC.860k, 2x4gb Gskill 1600mhz/CL9 DDR3, CLUB3D R9 270

Cons: No heatsink on VRM's, to be expected though, its an easy cheap fix, so no star deducted.

Pros: Cutest pretty board around for the price. 8x SATA3. Boots quickly into Windows 8.
Comment:
There are better boards out there, but not for this boards price point. 8x SATA3, overclocks well, lots of USB ports at price point and crossfire capable. I was a little unsure if the X4 860K I bought with this board at the same time would work, success, it does, whew.... It does have USB BIOS Flashback, but happily never needed it. Honestly sort of looks and feels like a mid-range board, very impressed for value for money. Makes for a really nice little HTPC, DLNA NASbox. specs are:X4 860K2x4GB DDR3 2133HD 7970SanDisk 240GB Extreme SSD2x3TB HDD'sEVGA 650W G1Fractal Design Core 1500

Cons: Hot southbridge

Pros: Cheap, stable
Comment:
Installed this in a basic web browsing PC for a client. Runs stable with an A10-5800K and 4GB DDR3. BIOS gets out of the way pleasantly fast so Windows can boot within 15 seconds.Felt like a steal at the sale price, never mind the mail-in rebate which I never take into account.Found the Southbridge heatsink was mounted loosely with only two spring-loaded plastic rivets and no thermal paste. Doesn't look like an individual fault but more Gigabyte's choice of mounting hardware - the springs are too weak. In any other application I'd tighten it and use some thermal paste.

Nice mATX board for socket FM2+ chips. Paired mine with an Athlon 860K and made a pretty deadly (and cheap) system.

Cons: None.

Pros: Great value especially on sale.Quality built.Nice BIOS GUI.Lots of options including 7 SATA ports.mATX so it'll fit in smaller cases.
Comment:
Gigabyte always deliver on quality motherboards, even on this intermediate budget offering, you get a lot of value and quality at a decent price. I got this around fifty after a mail in rebate, not including taxes, and it's excellent. The BIOS has a nice GUI, connects everything I have and more for the future including 7 SATA ports.

Cons: None

Pros: High quality board for the money. 4 ram slots and 2PCI-E16 slots for good expandability, all on a mATX board.
Comment:
I have built 3 systems with this board using the A10 5800K Quad core processors and 8 GB Ram : G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1866 CL9-10-9-28 Memory. Apparently it is important to use good quality fast ram with this platform, even so these are still an inexpensive build.2 of the systems are using dual monitors with no added video card. The systems perform very nicely with Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and my clients are very happy with them.

Cons: When using A10-7850K Kaveri you need an older APU from FM2 to update  bios.

Pros: Has great features, in a compact size.
Comment:
Needs to be better posted about bios updating if you are doing a new build and have no older APU already.

Cons: Only 6 USB ports in the rearNo Displayport

Pros: InexpensiveBlack PCB
Comment:
Perfect for a lower budget machine paired with Kaveri. One thing I like about AMD is that they don't constantly change sockets and they're backwards compatible.
