Solid simple AM3 board

Solid simple to use and set up board that supports a wide range of AM3 CPUs from low end Semprons through the various low power Athlon II X2, X3 and X4 CPUs through the under 125W Phenom and FX units. 6 SATA v 3.0 ports and 4 RAM slots won't turn this into a killer high end gaming build but it will most certainly hold its own. This board would serve well as the basis for a low cost home desktop general purpose build. I use mine for a home server, (all those SATA ports on a low priced board that supports down to 25W Athlon II 250u and 260u units). Using a gigabit network this board rarely stresses the CPU when writing 500+ GB allotments. Back ups written to this Just Freakin' Work.Read full review...

Good replacement for hwat I had

Although motherboard into says 32GB Ram can be installed, system only shows 3.75 GB available. Had this same message on the old board and thought I was getting rid of the message.
Board performs well it's just that I am not sure of what RAM I actually have available without physically looking at the chips.Read full review...

Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard

Motherboard is a good value for the money i really like it so far, i got the AMD fx 4300 and it is a lot faster then my old AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ the motherboard does seem to get a little hot 50-60C not sure if that is normal or if it is my small case and lack of fans so i hope to add more soon. this only has sata 2 not sata 3 it doesn't bother me though if you are wondering if you should get this i would say go for it. if you need something cheap just for web surfing or youtube videos or even some video rendering it does fare job! i would add more fans though to the case.Read full review...

Older chipset but still decent

760G chipset is from 2010 or so but this board is from 2014. Supports AM3/AM3+ processors so u can use an FX 8 core if you wanted. Maximum memory is 32gb ddr3 1333. Onboard video leaves more to be desired but its ok for a basic htpc (onboard hdmi).Read full review...

Inexpensive upgrade to "less old"

Purchased this unit to upgrade from an older, slower AM2 micro ATX to facilitate an upgrade to Windows 64-bit, and to make use of the "infamous" AMD core unlock feature that this MOBO supports.. I turned a 3-core (Non "black edition" into a 4 core with no issues. The board is as any other Micro ATX in its arrangement although I had to consult the master schematics (available online) for it in order to know where to put the lead for the front on/off switch and LEDs, and my 600-watt power source did not have an 8-pin 12-vole lead but the board's 8-pin accommodates a 4-pin lead, much the same as a 4-prong CPU fan input can support a 3-pin CPU fan lead.. Just don't overclock to the point where you melt the connectors or worse. All-in-all, for the price, the unit is just what I was looking for in a bump-up to a "less old" system.Read full review...

Fast and furious

Very good kit. easy to assemble. runs fast. One warning though-- the 212 cooler fan won't fit in standard width computer case so can only use with factory fan assy.

A good little plenty of nice features AM3+ motherboard,could be better!

Great motherboard for the money,even though it is based
on an old chipset it has some nice features.I had two revision 4.1 based motherboards for testing,both were scoring great,7.3 with a six core FX6100,7.5 with six core FX6300 and 7.7 for FX8120 95W in Windows 7 X64 WEI.However these boards are only 4+1 phases buildups,these will not properly handle processors like the FX8350 or video cards with TDPs over 160W,you will see some scary temperatures around 85-99C on the Northbridge VRM if you try the top processors or graphics on it.It has Dual Bios and has USB3,HDMI and GbE LAN which are all a plus and this blue model is much better than it's later revision the black 5.0 which is a fail.Because of 3+1 phases only Rev.5 will throttle the FX6300 like hell.The RAM can't be set over 1600MHz,even 1600 will require some serious knowledge because it is an overclocked mode.
It has Glass Fabric PCB design that helps protect against electrical shorts due to humidity by reducing the gaps in spacing between PCB filaments and High ESD Resistance ICs which help protect the motherboard against electrostatic discharge.
Little but packs quite a punch if paired up with the right processor meaning an FX6300 or FX8120 95W and some good memory.I had some serious troubles with it seeing all four RAM slots with the early 3X modular design of the FX6100.Upgraded to the latest bios will probably be able to run even the mighty FX8300 if you are very lucky to find an OEM version of it.
From the perspective of the usual computer user and that of the average gamer it is very good for the price.
Strange but Perestroika OCCT software and HWMonitor will not read well at all it's voltages,showed me some truly scary things,like 8V on +12V,2.7V on 5V,1.6V on 3V,the Gigabyte Tune software probably reads it properly.I have never seen before such a thing,at least not in the last twelve years.
If the Voltage Thing readings are indeed real then massive Amps are drawn out from the PSU on load and could be the best explanation for the high temperatures seen by me and some friends for hardware configurations with under load power requirements of over 260W for this particular motherboard.
I didn't have the time to measure those voltages,and I doubt a Micro ATX motherboard could handle well one piece of 130W FX-8320 CPU with only 8V on 12V and only 4 active power phases if this is the case.I think somebody should really ask Gigabyte's engineers an inconvenient question about this potential circuitry problem.
After 14 months of usage one of the motherboards is showing a random black screen of death on an FX-8120 so definitely if you want to use processors with 95W+ thermals on you will need certified 80+ PSU 500W with dual EPS 4+4 connecters.
The black screen sometimes appears with the onboard VGA active or even with a new discrete and mighty Radeon R9-290X video card added.
Expert score and this is very realistic and accurate:65

Love the Features.

Supports IDE and Sata. I was able to unlock an old Athlon x3 to a phenom x4. even though it's a 760 it still has fun features to play with and I like the Non UEFI bios very straight forward. It also offers Desktop base OC software on the driver disc. I don't know how it preforms with AM3+ but it defiantly excels with the old AM2+/AM3 CPUs.Read full review...

Awesome motherboard

This is a great motherboard. It has all the features a person needs at a very reasonable price. I especially like that it has vga, dvi and hdmi ports on board. It also has a usb3 connector for a front panel usb3 port.Read full review...

Easy install, nice improvement in performance

Installed in a generic atx box running WIN ten. Powered down, replaced MOBO, processor and RAM. Powered up and WIN10 recognized everythingand installed the correct drivers and I was up and running in less than two hours. Nice kit and didn't break the bank.Read full review...
