The BIOS looks nice and is relatively easy to use, however upon booting it makes a loud beep for about 3 seconds, and there is no way to disable it. Also, UEFI makes dual-booting linux a pain (although that is not an issue specific to this motherboard). As far as the actual motherboard goes, it is mostly black with some white highlights and looks quite nice. It's got 2 RAM slots, but only 1 PCIE slot, and also there is only 1 fan power socket on the motherboard, so you can only use 1 extra case fan.
Simple Motherboard, has the features i needed. Cheap and no issues with it.
Decent motherboard, ran in to a few problems with drivers for my network adaptor, not sure if it was to do with the OS or the MOBO. Has all the sufficient parts needed for the build. Doesn't look great but the bios is easy to use. Would recommend for an entry level build!
I exclusively pick GIGABYTE motherboards because they are the only brand in Argentina that offers RMA support, even if you're stupid enough to bend a pin in the socket. The GIGABYTE board is not perfect... It's about time they put a better UEFI solution for the low-end boards. The yellow LED strip on the audio chip and caps is unnecessary, and one thing I don't like and it's trending lately, is the fact that only one of the two RAM tabs (per slot) can be opened. Yes, I know it has to do with clearance for the GPU, but yet still, I've got no problem if I've got to undo screws and uninstall the GPU to install RAM or change RAM. Other than that, nice PCB thickness, subdued colours all around, and port selection in the rear I/O is sensible enough.
