I bought this motherboard as I wished to upgrade to an AMD FX 8350 processor (I bought both items at the same time). I chose it as I have used Gigabyte motherboards for the past 10+ years. As with all of my prior experiences with Gigabyte motherboards, the board itself is beautifully laid out - everything is very cleanly presented, well spaced out and has a professional look and feel. It was very easy to swap my old Gigabyte for this new one - it was very much like for like. All of the connections are cleanly labelled and the manual is as helpful as any manual I've come across for a board like this.

Just be warned, however, I had both a SATA Blu Ray drive and an IDE DVD drive in my PC... this motherboard does NOT have any IDE support, it's all SATA based. Thankfully I have my Blu Ray drive which meant that this wasn't an issue either way but this was something I didn't realise until I had bought it (so now I have a useless DVD drive in my PC).

The board itself, then, is a typically high quality product from Gigabyte. It also supports up to 32GB of RAM maximum, in case you are interested in maxing it out (I have done, no problems there either). And if my previous 10+ years experience with Gigabyte products is anything to go by, then it will be rock solid reliability-wise, too.

First of all this is the best looking MB I ever had , it has a black/silver colored scheme.
Apart from the aesthetics it has a lot feature, it has plenty of USB (including 3.0) and SATA 3
(6 GB/s) port . If i'm not wrong the VRM has 8+2 power phase design which has nicely cooled , Overclocks very well I've tested it
and i could manage to reach 4.72 GHZ with my FX 6300 six-core CPU with a slight increase in Core voltage, but i prefer to run everything on stock.

My specs:
this MB with FX 6300 six-core CPU which is 10/10 for me , perfect for gaming trust me you don't need eight cores for gaming
Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4 GB DDR3 1600 CL9 1.5V memory which is the best bang for the buck
Sapphire R9 270X 2GB GDDR5 does the job perfectly on 1080p on the highest settings (excluding AA)
Corsair Carbide 300R Gaming Case
Corsair RM650 80+ Gold
Seagate 1TB SATA 3 /64 MB cache
Kingston Hyper-X 120 GB Solid state drive ( SSD)

Overall it's a nice MB,not the cheapest tough, but it's worth the money.
I'm satisfied with this purchase , trust me you can't make a mistake with this !

Edit: I got the Rev 4.0 instead of 1.0 ! and i have heard the rumors , the rev 1.0 had problems with the VRM cooling , however on the rev 4.0 this problem has solved and i could not be happier ! since i have received the Rev 4.0 instead of 1.0 .

Nice board, I have received (rev 1.2) BIOS updated for FX bulldozer. There is a different BIOS update for different rev boards, so mind that as a new F8 bios for rev 1.0, doesn't go with rev 1.2
I have noticed that Northbridge get so hot I can't touch it for longer then 5 second,
I'll investigate if that is normal for that board.

Bought this board for a new build this year and don't regret it.If your into SLI Gaming this is a great board to buy.Nicely spaced out,plenty of room and looks nice aswell.I use a Phenom quad core 950 black edition cpu(wish I'd gone with a 6 core now)but with a bios update I can upgrade.If your planning to swap out your stock cpu cooler(I did with a Zalman CNPS9900 MAX)just watch the memory you buy some of their heatsinks can be a bit high(If you intend to fill the 4 slots)Apart from that it was an easy install and would recommend this board for it's quality and price.

If you intend to use this mobo with an AMD FX processor then it will require a BIOS update, Amazon can not do this for you, and you need and older AMD CPU to achieve this otherwise you will have to arrange a BIOS update with the manufacturer or a friend has an older AMD CPU you can use. Other wise a good mobo with plenty of extra functionality.

Purchased this to go in my newbuild computer paired with a AMD FX8350 processor and it works like a dream! The motherboard is incredibly well made and sturdy with suitable cooling points on it so it doesn't get very hot inside my soundproofed case. Mine came already on Rev 3 so I didn't need to flash the bios to get my processor to work, I've heard others have had an issue where it's shipped at a lower rev so beware but I have had no such issue. I am sure I will be using it for years to come. Fantastic quality at a fantastic price!
