Default Request Review: Gigabyte MA770-UD3

i've been dying to find review for this motherboard, but could find any.

Is it possible if HWC does a review to this mobo since its quite new and its cheap too.

Depends on how quickly you "need" the review and how many other people are interested.

Personally, I love these requests because it shows us what people are looking for at retailers which can influence the direction our reviews head.

I give +1 to this. I'm looking to build a budget machine for my buddy, right around what i'm looking for as a Mobo, so i would be very interested in a review!

anandtech did a mini review of it in their $825 system budget guide:

AnandTech: System Buyers Guide: PCs under $825

scroll down and u'll find the paragraph on it. I actually bought it based on that review and i couldnt have been happier. It has one of the cleanest and easy to use bios' i've ever seen (and im coming from DFI & Abit mobos). Stable as a rock & has ultra durable 3 parts. Currently has my x3-720 overclocked to 3.6 @ 1.5v & 2.6 cpu nb controller, but i had to give it alot of juice to get the 2.6 on the nb controller (1.55!! :0 very much worth it though, system is so much snappier and responsive at that speed!!).

ask away if u have any questions. cheers.

You asked and we listened. The board arrive this last Friday.

We needed to wait a bit longer because Gigabyte had sold out and was waiting for the next shipment from Taiwan.
