“I've had my Gigabyte GA-7ZX for about 4 years now and...”

Written on: 29/05/2005 by PHREDD (1 review written)

I've had my Gigabyte GA-7ZX for about 4 years now and have had limited problems with it. I'm only running an AMD Thunderbird 850 chip and I have good stable game play on almost everything I play. Although I plan on building another system this summer, I will continue to use a Gigabyte board. If you are having boot up problems with this board you might want to buy yourself a how to book or just read the manual that comes with it… Read Full Review

“After all this time I have found the reason for the...”

Written on: 06/09/2004 by Dave OH (1 review written)

After all this time I have found the reason for the instability (if it will run at all) of the motherboard with the AMD Thunderbird processor. It is not the motherboard itself but the inability of the VIA KT-133 Chipset to handle timing problems due to the design of the AMD Socket A CPU, (longer traces length which meant that the processor could be used with the less common AMD 750 chipset but not the KT-133). So my upgrade Thunderbird chip is of no use… Read Full Review

“The bad point about the Giga-Byte GA-7 ZX motherboard...”

Written on: 21/06/2002 by Nightwind. (1 review written)

The bad point about the Giga-Byte GA-7 ZX motherboard is that the board often fails on 1st boot-up and hangs. But subsequent boots will succeed.

The good point is the board is stable once its booted up. I leave my system on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and reboot maybe once every 4-7 days so the booting problem does not bother me.

So far the system has not crashed, even when I leave on 3 days running as a on-line game server (Medal Of Honour) or as a P2P server for Kazaa downloads.

“I bought 2 motherboards from GIGA-BYTE in the last...”

Written on: 04/01/2002 by Dark~Destiny. (1 review written)

I bought 2 motherboards from GIGA-BYTE in the last year and both have done nothing but fail me and my expectations. One was a dual cpu workstation for P3 cpus the second an AMD XP board. They both fail to boot and show a bios. After 6 days of messing around I finally got the dual cpu board to work for about 3 months and one day it died. Called and emailed the company to no avail, they kept sending me emails with more phone numbers to call so I just gave up, not learning from my first mistake I… Read Full Review

“I have had my board for four months now, and I have...”

Written on: 06/04/2001 by Doc. (1 review written)

I have had my board for four months now, and I have also had stability and speed problems with it. It seems that Gigabyte, having released a new board, bizarrely felt the need to bundle "old" VIA chipset drivers (4.20) with it that are incompatible with NVidia's GeForce cards. I found that after upgrading the motherboard drivers to the latest version (at the time, 4.24), stability improved greatly over the initial mess I was presented with.
In general, this has improved slightly as the drivers… Read Full Review
