Product Description

Product Description

GIGABYTE 6 series motherboards incorporate an Intel approved Intersil PWM controller that is VRD 12 (Voltage Regulator Down) compliant. This means that it offers new features that include SerialVID (SVID) which transfers power management information between the processor and voltage regulator controller, allowing more robust and efficient signaling control between the CPU and PWM controller - hence, delivering a more energy efficient platform. GIGABYTE strongly believes that in 2011, HD audio playback is a

I spent many late nights researching motherboards, trying to decide which was best, gave the latest options and so on.

I am building a new pc rather than just buy off the shelf which I normally do, I wanted more control over my machine as I use it for all the usual home tasks and some MMO gaming such as WoW and SWTOR.

Make no mistake, there are lots of boards out there offering similiar, more, the best, you wont get better and price tags to match. This was a cheaper option than many, however what I did establish is that this has everything I need. Socket 1155, USB3 sockets for the future, SSD slot on the motherboard if I need an SSD drive.

From what I have trawled through on the net this board is everything most people will ever need and more, unless you have very specific needs then you will know exactly what you want, but if you dont then this is perfect. The software is great the layout of the board is very good and the documentation is almost childs play when it comes to finding out where you need to plug everything into.

I installed the processor and its fan in under 10 mins from opening the box and I have never built a pc before so I am no expert, in fact my hand was shaking installing the processor thinking I would break it!

I really cant say much more than that, great price in comparison to others, far more features than I would ever require both on the board on in terms of software.

For reference my build was:

Gigabyte motherboard
Nivida GT650 Ti video
Asus sound card
I3 2100 Processor
8GB Corsair memory

It might not be the best out there but I can run games like WoW and SWTOR on full settings and it does not even flicker :)

i bought this motherboard and installed it. it worked fine and then after 2 days i got stuck in a reeboot loop. i tried to fix it myself buti couldnt do it. i gave it to the local computer center and they couldn't do anything about it either (that cost me forty quid). so i did some research and it turns out this model of board has been known to have this fault. i wouldn't buy it again and i dont recommend it but it was good while it lasted. i sent it back and got a refund. all's well that ends well. :)

I always build my home desktop PC and I chose this motherboard for a more up-to-date hardware with reasonable CPU power. My last motherboard was also Gigabyte (model GA-EP35-DS4, rev. 2.1) which served me nearly five years with ultimate reliability. Nothing wrong with my old motherboard but like any hardware system, features evolve and there comes a time when only the latest motherboards support new features and requirements. For this build, Quad Core and SLAT (Second Level Address Translation) are essential requirements which means a minimum of Intel i5 CPU - and for this I picked the Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU (4 x 3.40GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 6Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0). The choice of motherboard was then an easy one - Gigabyte brand, LGA 1155 Socket, et cetera. This motherboard provided everything I was looking for, and many more, including support for over-clocking (OC) of unlocked CPUs such as the i5-3570K (which are suffixed with the letter K).

There was also a pleasant surprise: although Amazon listed this motherboard as Rev 1.0, what I received was actually the latest Rev 2.0 motherboard. The differences between the two (as far as I can establish) are:

(i) the PCIe x16 slots for Rev 2.0 conform to the latest PCI Express Standard 3.0 (I think Standard 2.0 for Rev 1.0 motherboard); and

(ii) one of the 3Gbps SATA connectors in Rev 1.0 motherboard is now replaced by mSATA (Mini-SATA) connector, intended for the SSD.

This is an excellent motherboard. Comes with lots of features and free software for overclocking, bios features, free norton. Touch Bios is great because you can control the bios features from withing windows. Easy to install CPU, Ram. PCIE Slots have little levers you press to release the graphics card which is very usefull when removing graphics cards alot. very easy to install with instructions step by step included. Comes with a booklet with everything you need to know. Only thing about it is it didnt fit in my case perfectly. The Case said it can fit Atx Motherboards, and Im assuming this is and atx motherboard. It still fits in just afew screws at the edge didnt line up. Overall great motherboard and def worth the purchase! :D

Hi there. Here's my feedback for this motherboard (Z68AP-D3), which I purchased for a mere £50 here from Amazon.co.uk:
First, let's look at the cons for the board:

CONS:
-Only uses the traditional 1oz copper PCB (instead of 2oz for more expensive/newer boards).
-No onboard USB3 header - if you have a USB3 case, you will NOT be able to connect the front panel USB ports to the motherboard.

My comments for the cons:
The 1oz PCB is to be expected in this price range. What it means is effectively, that the board is less heat-resistant and less overclock-friendly. To prevent damaging the board, I do NOT recommend attempting CPU overclocks above 4.2GHz - even if the boards VRM-circuit should easily handle that. Now onto the GOOD stuff:

PROS:
- I recieved the revision 2.0 of the motherboard (and not the rev. 1.0 as advertised).
- Supports IVY Bridge Core i5 CPUs right out of the box (Even though the bundled bios version (FC) should officially not).
- Strong VRM (with efficient MOSFETs) for moderate overclocking.
- Can overclock Locked Ivy Bridge Core i5s after a BIOS update.
- Supports Crossfire.
- Good onboard Sound codec (above standard in even newer boards).
- USB3 and SATA3 capability.

My comments for the Pros:
Overclocking a Locked Ivy Bridge i5 requires updating to the latest BIOS version (UEFI) - and this proved to be tricky. I had to use an "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" along with bootable DOS files in order to correctly make a flash drive, that could update the BIOS. There are a couple of tutorials for this online (use google). Also, this may only have worked for me because I recieved the Revision 2.0 of this motherboard.
