My first system was with ga-h87m-d3h..but I faced serious issues while connecting my smartphone/dongle for Internet. My monitor screen started showing rainbow effect and flickering..I thought my monitor is gone..And the Reltek 892 codec is a waste with the onboard 7.1 audio ports..Produces horrible sound..music listening really su*ked..
Pros: parts are good on this mobo..Looks really sturdy but the mobo frequency balancing is not at all up-2-mark. Never expected from gigabyte.
Now I dont hv any other choice other than to go with Asus or Asrock. Syability and after sales service are priority..
Can u please suggest me between Asus H87M-E and Asrock h87 pro4 or Asus H87 pro.
INFO about the frequency issue that I mentioned earlier: "I spoke with the Gigabyte Guys and they are getting a lot of similar internet dongle connectivity issues from other consumers too.:pfff:
Anyways I have returned my Gigabyte MOBO to the seller today..
Anyways thanks for the inputs, friend..
I mistakenly mentioned Asrock, but I definitely don't want to go for it as I want a perfect brand without any headaches.Better to go with Asus or Gigabyte.!!
Now I have some more queries to decide upon my next MOBO asap as now I am without any mobo to run my cpu:pfff:
ASUS H87 pro is around 10230/- INR and ASUS H87M-E is 8180/- INR.
Is it worth paying 2030/- more for the ASUS Pro for getting these extra features :
1) Display Port
2) Optical S/PDIF out port
3) CrossFireX support
4) ATX form factor
5) Five Audio Ports
DO you have a need for any of the above, if not then get the H87M-E - the primary concerns would prob be if a true need for full ATX form factor - prob No, need for XFire support, again gues prob No since it doesn't appear to be a heavy OCing rig , then the optical SPDIF - and can just guess No, the audio ports if needed later could be added with a simple sound card and the Display port could go with an adapter if a real need ever arose
