1 out of 5 eggsExpensive/Poor Quality

Pros: I am a fan of Gigabyte's BIOS for overclocking.

Cons: This board failed on me after 8 months. I sent the board back for an RMA, received the exact same board back (I had marked it with a Sharpie). It worked for a month after the RMA, then failed again. Seeing as it is difficult to diagnose a motherboard's issues I was reluctant to write a review earlier. However, I purchased a new x58 motherboard by another manufacturer and all my issues vanished, clearly leading me to point to the poor quality of this motherboard and the poor RMA service provided by Gigabyte. This motherboard is now obsolete after only ONE YEAR.

Other Thoughts: I no longer trust the quality of Gigabyte motherboards.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Motherboard

Pros: This board makes a great hackintosh build. I'm running it with 10.6.7 and it posts geekbench at about 11K with 24GB RAM and a 980x. Haven't bothered to OC it because of how fast it is stock.

With the OS installed on an Intel X25M SSD, there is almost no lag on any action you do.

Cons: It doesn't come with a 1 click OSX installer?

Occasionally I have a hard lock where all IO deadlocks, and only a hard reboot will fix it. Haven't tracked it down yet, but it only occurs about once every 45 days or so if I don't reboot, so it doesn't happen often, and given the configuration, it could be any number of things.

Other Thoughts: Overall, the Intel SATA ports work wonderfully. I have not mucked about enough with the other 2 controllers to see if I can get 10 devices hooked up, although that may be coming soon. It's an OSX KEXT issue, not a board issue.

I also installed Win7 originally, and did the OSX install on a lark. It performed so well, Win7 was only booted that single time during installation. Now I just run it in a VM.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've always had positive results with Gigabyte mobos. Overall, this is no different. Lots of options and runs fast! This was my first Intel mobo for about 7 years and I can tell the difference going from AMD.

Cons: The raid controllers keeps dropping my HHDs. Not too much of a problem for my two RAID 0 setups, but it kicks me in the teeth when the RAID 1 drops (C:\ drive), especially before I could get my system configured and imaged. Some of my software must talk to "home" to activate and use. When I had to reinstall the software it flagged as too many installations, forcing me to repay for three programs.

Other Thoughts: I still love the Gigabyte mobos. I never had RAID issues with AMD or Gigabyte in the past. It's not a bad foundation for a new rig, but I'm going back to AMD after this.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite Impressive

Pros: Hot Plug 3TB Drives, SuperFast USB 3.0, Full 24Gig RAM DDR3 Usage, Boots up Windows 7x64 with Core i7 and Plextor SSD Drive within 15 Seconds. Sustained Transfer Rate with AHCI completely enabled at 125MB/s, I'm quite Happy with the Board. I purchased one for the Office as well as Home since the Speed is Incredible if you are a Non-Game All Work no play type of Individual. My Windows 7 x64 Experience with a ZOTAC Video is 7.7. I would definitely Recommend this Board to someone who is Technical and can appreciate a solid board. Sometimes I wonder if the people that complain are truly technical since this board with a Little patience and Love can sing a tune that will put a smile on any Techno Person's Mente

Cons: The BIOS can be quite confusing, So TREAD LIGHTLY! can't have IDE and AHCI on it SLOWS the Motherboard Down, but what board doesn't

Other Thoughts: I'm still trying to figure out the Network Teaming with the Realtek Diagnostics, but at work I use this Board for Backups on the Network, I get a Sustained Transfer Rate of 90 MB/s on the Wire. Pretty Impressive for REALTEK NICS.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 4 months

Pros: I've never had a problem with past Gigabyte mobos.

Cons: This board failed after 4 months of normal use. I do not even overclock anything on my system.

Other Thoughts: I've contacted the manufacturer for an RMA. Based on the turnaround time, it looks like my PC will be functional again in a month. What a shame.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Full Featured Board

Pros: Lots of connection options; Well constructed; Quality build; Good Manual; Works with 24 gigs of memory; Basically a plug and play board; Good options for Bios recovery. Very inclusive Bios

Cons: Software utilities so-so.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for an X58 board that would recognize 24 gigs of memory and have exclusively used Asus boards. I found this board on sale at a ridiculously low price and after reading some very positive reviews decided to make the purchase, due more to economics than the Gigabyte brand. I loaded the board with an i7 960 processor, 24 gigs of G Skill and it booted right up, recognized all of my Sata drives and burners, and except for one hang at boot up which was remedied after using the "clear cmos" button on the back of the board, I haven't had any problems. The Bios is a bit daunting, but with a little research I'm confidant to go beyond basics when making changes. This board definitely eclipses anything Asus has to offer in the X58 category, adding IDE and Floppy connectors. If it had a PCIX slot I think it would be perfect. Kudos to Gigabyte for making such a great board, and the online forum support is pretty good at helping to solve problems.

4 out of 5 eggsMy Dream machine

Pros: Here is a Motherboard for the Speed Lover. I installed 2nd Gen Core i7 Gulftown with 24Gigs of Ram running at 1066 to get it to work with All 24 Gigs. a Midtower Case with a 2 slot 2.5Inch HotSwap and a 3 Slot 3.5" SATA Enclosure. the 2 SLOT was for SSD and installed Win7 Pro OS with 3 2TB SAMSUNG Drives. I run everything within VMWARE Workstation, so as not to worry about Losing apps, if I want to Purchase Multiple SSD's for Experimenting. Not s problem sharing Devices from the Virtual and my 24GIG RAM host. it was worth the investment. Easy BIOS Upgrade. EasyTune 6 allows for overclock without rebooting. I'm not a gamer but an experimenter, who's lazy about opening up the Box, so i just open the FrontEnd slot and slip in an SSD or a SATA HD. this is TOOO easy. I run about 6 separate guest systems pushing each one and the system does not break a sweat. with 6Cores and 12 Threads, I can create guests with 4 Cores. Absolutely amazing.
Thank you Gigabyte.

Cons: If you are not highly technical, this board can be a challenge. if not configured correctly you can blue screen easily. but the Boot up time between reboots, 15 to 30 seconds debending on how many Guests I have running. Also Having an issue with the NVidia GTS 450 card conflicting with my USB Speakers, but haven't felt the pain great enough to work on it. This is just on the Host but the guests work fine.

Other Thoughts: I think that overall This has been a Good Investment. I needed one system at Home that can handle multiple guests since I have a few hundred systems I maintain at work. Didn't want it to be a maintenance nightmare. I'm really please with the Board and how easily it handle the 6Core-i7 CPU.
