Rob,
I built my last computer project with this board. It is the first Gigabyte
board I have used, as have used ASUS boards for years.

All I can say is the board works as advertised. I have a PCI-64 Firewire-800
board in one of the PCI-X slots (Firewire support is not on this board). I
use an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro in the AGP slot, 2 512MB PC3200 DDR sticks of
Crucial memory. and a Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS.

My only nagging complaint is how this board handles SATA CD-ROM devices.
Neither the Plextor DVDR PX-712A or Asus DVD-E616P with a SATA converter
will work on the Silicon Image Sil 3114 SATALink Controller; they have to be
connected to the Intel 6300ESB Ultra ATA SATA Storage/SATA Controller. This
means I have to connect my 2 74G Western Digital Raptor SATA hard drives
(non Raid) and another 250GB Western Digital SATA hard drive to the Sil 3114
Controller.

My SCSI devices, a VXA Tape drive and a 36GB IBM SCSI hard drive work as my
system backup. I normally disable the SCSI controller in the MB BIOS and
enable SCSI when I want to perform a system backup.

Availability? Gigabyte manufactured only a single run of these boards. They
were snapped-up very quickly. I bought mine from NewEgg and they only had
them about a week and I believe I paid about $350.00. Good luck on finding a
new one.

It is not the board, it is Silicon Image. The Sil 3114, onboard or as
PCI card, can only be used with hard disks.

Udo,
Here's the link to this subject on the Silicon Image website.
http://12.24.47.40/display/2/index.asp?c=12&cpc=ULwO0A4...

The Sil 3114 chip will work with CDROMs but must meet certain requirements
(read link above). My Plextor 712SA is a native SATA device and my Asus
DVD-E616P has a bridge adapter card with a Sil 31611 chip. Both my devices
should work but they do not.

Udo,
Sorry about the link...
Enter portal using above link, locate and press Serial ATA button, select
controllers, select Sil3114, the statement I was reffering to in my earlier
post is the last one on this page.

I know this link. About 8 month ago I had the problem to connect a
Yamaha CRW-F1 to SATA. The Onboard-Controller was the Sil 3114 and the
bridge adapter card with a Sil 3611 chip. It was impossible to use the
CD-writer on SATA. I asked the support from Silicon Image and they
told me, that the bridge can only be used with hard disks.
Unfortunately I have cancelled the email.

Now I have the Plextor PX-712SA and a SATA Harddisk from Samsung
connected to the onboard SATA-controller integrated in intel's i875.
It works without any problems.
