1 out of 5 eggsJoke

Pros: Everything when it works.

Cons: Front panel header decides to work when it feels like it.

Other Thoughts: In order to get this board to power on the majority of the time I have to hold down my power button as if doing a hard shutdown and then a ritual of powering on for a second, shutting down, and then powering on fully occurs. This has been an ongoing issue. I've tried different power supplies, cases, etc etc....basically put together entirely new computers with this board being the only component I reuse and the problem persists. I've RMA'd the board twice, but all they do is send the same exact board back claiming it was repaired. What happens when I test it? The same nonsense as always. On for a second, off, on for another second, off again, and finally fully boots up. Oh and not to mention the random power downs no matter what I'm doing.

Avoid this company at all costs, because heaven forbid you actually have a problem and RMA something back all they're going to do is stare at it for a week and send it back to you with the exact same problems.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid LGA2011 Motherboard

Pros: Paired this board with a 4930K and haven't been happier. Everything worked right out of the box. OC'd to 4.1ghz at 1.32v. Board is rock solid (physically), looks amazing and performs very well.

Cons: I don't like that the USB3 header is right beside the 24 pin power. Cable management is important to me and the position of this is not desirable.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GA-X79-UD3

Pros: Totally new build. Almost no issues at all. Bios issues have seem to be resolved with Rev 1.1 with bios F17. Instantly recognized processor, memory, video card, SSD drives Default CPU speed 3.7Ghz with memory clocking in at 2133.

Sapphire DualX R9 280X
Samsung 840 Pro 256gb SSD
Samsung 840 500gb SSD
Stuffed into an nMediaPC 2800B

Cons: The only issue I have seen at this time is that the HDMI digital audio driver that is installed with the Sapphire DualX Video card disables the on board digital audio driver making the back panel SPDIF digital outs non-functional. It also conflicts with the Dolby Home Theater drivers. For a media PC this is not acceptable.

Other Thoughts: Since this is a media PC the optical SPDIF output is more important than the HDMI driver for the video card. Disabling the AMD High Definition Audio Device in "device manager" and re-installing the onboard Realtec audio drivers solves the problem.

3 out of 5 eggsNo longer overclockes ram, cant upgrade MEI

Pros: Works, affordable, supports quad sli and xfire

Cons: When it arrived, BIOS did not support the 4820k chip i had. I had to borrow a less powerful chip then flash it to the most recent BIOS.

The board used to overclock the ram to 2133 well, but now it does not allow it and if i attempt to do it multiple times, the bios corrupts and has to pre-load it.

The Intel Management Engine Interface drivers do not work and the board continues to show the driver is not installed correctly

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Been running straight for over a month now, without any issues. I've always had good luck with Gigiabye motherboards. No installation or POST issues at all. This board has a very solid feel to it, not flimsy at all. Drivers installed 100% without any issues as well...

Cons: None so far

4 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: This brand continues to impress. I'm a long time fan of ASUS and switched to thsi brand a few years ago when my ASUS was out of stock and needed an immediate replacement.

Never went back to ASUS. Same effectiveness for a lower price.

Cons: I'd kill for two extra USB 3.0 slots and exterior CMOS reset, pegging it down a star for it.

2 out of 5 eggsBuggy

Pros: Works and overclocks.

Cons: Only two USBs work in the back, the others randomly go out. The bios works but keeps forgetting the settings.
You will have to put a fan over the VRMs since it under clock the CPU after a 20 minutes (When Overclocked).

Other Thoughts: I still trust gigabyte but spending close to 300 on this I'll probably go with something else next time.

Why not RMA? 2000 dollar paperweight and I'll wait till it stops booting.

5 out of 5 eggsRock Solid

Pros: Gigabyte
Durable
x79
3d bios
many many options, I love Gigabyte because I know they are durable and are just a solid platform to build our workstations on with all the bells and whistles we would ever need to OC and keep our machines up to date.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: We paired this with i7-4930k CPU and Dominator GT 16gb 2133 RAM.. More then we could ever ask for!

Will be around for many years to come!

now to talk management into upgrading all of our workstations!
