Write a review for: Gigabyte 970A-DS3P AM3+ AMD 970 DDR3 ATX
I've been running this motherboard for over a year now, with Windows 7. Set-up was easy, and there have been zero problems. It's often running 24/7 continuously.
Same as other review and seemingly across the internet with this particular motherboard
Spent a week getting in 3 of every other part (CPU/GPU/RAM/PSU/SSD) to test and still wouldn't post
Had another gigabyte and it worked fine. Not sure I can ever go back after this frustration :(
Built new system using this motherboard but it wouldn't POST. Bought a replacement MSI board after RMA this one and system worked perfectly. I've been building systems for 20 years and this is only the second time I've had a new board that wouldn't POST and both times were made by GigaByte. Stick to MSI/Asus in future
