Description

The 970A-DS3 motherboard is designed to offer a stable, high-speed platform for delivering amazingly fast data transfer via the GIGABYTE 333 onboard acceleration technologies. Featuring the USB3.0 controller, AMD 900 series motherboards allow users to take advantage of super fast USB transfer rates of up to 5Gbps, delivering 10x faster data transfer compared to USB 2.0. Utilizing the industry's first Serial ATA Revision 3.0 solution via AMD SB950 chipset, GIGABYTE AMD 900 series motherboards offer native 6 ports of next generation high speed data storage devices support with data transfer speeds of up to 6 Gbps with RAID 0, 1, 5, 10. The AMD 900 series motherboards introduce a unique hardware design with lower resistance fuses for ensuring lower voltage drops and providing more stable and plentiful power delivery. USB ports also benefit from a 3x power boost for better power delivery to power hungry USB devices.

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
