GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 design, featuring 2 ounces of copper for both the Power and Ground layers which dramatically lowers system temperature by delivering a more efficient spreading of heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU power zone throughout the entire PCB. GIGABYTE's Ultra Durable 3 also lowers the PCB impedance by 50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. A 2oz Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for overclocking

This board is not directly compatible with Linux, specifically the built-in Ethernet. In order for it to work you must enable IOMMU in BIOS, but disable IOMMU on the linux kernel command line with “iommu=soft”. Without this all will appear working, but you will have absolutely no connectivity. This bug / compatibility issue affects all revisions past 1.1 that have the new UEFI BIOS.

I have had this mobo in service for 23 months, running 8-10 hours a day. The simple version is, it has not given me a single bluescreen, has been quick to recognize and not fussy about all hardware I have installed. I have installed nearly 20 motherboards in systems for myself or for friends and relatives, and this one is at or near the top in terms of initial quality and apparent long-term quality and capability. The Ultra Durable (UD) line from Gigabyte is superb -- I have replaced them only to upgrade to greater capabilities, and never due to failures. That alone speaks volumes to me and will keep me a Gigabyte user for the foreseeable future.Read more ›

I have 4 custom built PCs and 6 PCs total.
With that said.

I have two AMD Systems, and while I elect to use ASUS for Intel, I have found Gigabyte is my brand for AMD. I bought this Motherboard with the intention of having an easy time getting a sixcore 3.3ghz FX Chip up and running, and I did. The board has loads of features, great slot selection, it has 3 PCIe slots (x16) and works with a Nvidia GeForce GTS 460 I am using (and also another card in another slot, an ATI FirePro 4800) and has a PCIE USB3 (extra 2 port) card in it, running great. Used an 850w Power Supply, which seemed ample and the motherboard has a good standard bios (its not UEFI for you UEFI fans out there) but it is a standard old Award Bios.

One thing I noticed is with win7 ultimate there is no sleep mode setting for the PC obvious but you can still set one if you want to (I do not but I notice these things and report them). If this MB is as reliable as my 880FX Gigabyte or numerous other Gigabyte boards in the past have been (I Been using Gigabyte since before they had US website, in other words when gigabyte.com.tw was the only one out there - yeah about 15 years) and they always come true for me with AMD.

I have only built two intel based machines in the last 15 years (AMD is usually my preference but I went with two lga 2011 3960Xtreme's as AMD cannot compete with it) as I had the cash. Interesting facts is this scores well on benchmarks (the FX chip) against my 3960X's at 1/4 the price.

This motherboard looks like yet another winner by Gigabyte (I have never had a Gigabyte board fail, or be DOA on me. I can't say that for ASUS) in general the computers get older than they are worth to still use before a problem with their boards pops up.

I wanted the most versatile AM3+ mobo for the system I'm building.
It was a tough decision because the top of the line ASUS board had
a Thunderbolt card and UEFI Bios included for only a few dollars more.
When the Thunderbolt board was taken out of the equation, this
Gigabyte board had, without a doubt, more features. The UEFI bios is
a great improvement but being very familiar with the old style bios,
the lack of it wasn't a deal breaker.
The UD7 version has an additional PCI-e slot and one of the eSATA
rear ports doubles as a USB port. Nice, but for me it wasn't worth
$60. The UD5, for some reason, has one more USB port than the UD7.

I have owned Gigabyte products in the past and have never had
a problem. They all worked as advertised and some are still in
service. This board is replacing a Gigabyte 880gx model and
is an improvement, not just in power and features, but in the
layout of the board. Most notable is the easier access to the
SATA connectors. The older board had them positioned in a way
that made it almost impossible to plug in connectors after the
board was installed in the case. This board solves that problem.
All other connectors are as easy to access as possible considering
the physical size limits of an ATX board. With an INTEL 520 240gb
SSD installed, it fired up quickly and Windows 7 Pro installed
without a hitch.

I took advantage of the PCI bus to install an older 2 port SATA II
card to use with my Blu Ray reader and Blu Ray writer leaving the
8 SATA III connections free. I would have liked for ALL the USB
busses to be USB 3.0, but no one yet makes that, so installing
a 4 port USB 3.0 card in a PCIe slot will have to suffice.
