1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None as of yet, board will not POST

Cons: Decided to give Gigabyte a chance and try out this board. DOA, gives me a 6A code. Sent in a support ticket and one week later is still hasn't been read. Sent a RMA request to Gigabyte and no response. The customer service is SLOW.

Other Thoughts: I wanted this board to work, it had the best set of features with the best price. I am left with a bad taste in my mouth because customer service will not get back to me. I may have to bite the bullet and go with ASUS or EVGA. I know that at least EVGA customer support is top notch.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Board

Pros: It has everything. 6 sataIII ports, 2 sataII ports, usb3.0 included wifi/bluetooth, and PICE3.0 Well designed layout. Easy to setup. And has awesome performance

Cons: Missing a cable for the wifi/bluetooth card and missing driver cd. Was enough for me to knock an egg off.

Other Thoughts: This is an awesome board. if I had known that ver 2 was being worked on, I would have waited probably. But absolutely no regrets, worked out of the box with little fuss booted up perfectly. The PCIE 3.0 even boosted my old 8800 performance a bit.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy You Mad?

Pros: This boards quality of design and the quality of the components on it are impressive to say the least. It has great features and I feel very comfortable with it's dependability. This board has every feature I needed for my 3930k. I couldn't be happier with the layout of the mobo (Except one minor thing see cons*). I'm really looking forward having this board running my SandyBridge for a while...Because I'm all out of money ^_^

Cons: My computer case is the Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T, and the heatsync on the top of the mobo interfears with my radiator for the Corsair H100 cooler. Unfortunately I wasn't able to work in a push pull setup as I have had to just go with a pull set up with my fans sucking air through the radiator. Luckily though I has tested the temperatures with this set up and I concluded that I wouldn't run into any thermal issues. Just be aware...This mobo is big and takes up space for sure.

Other Thoughts: It's really unfortunate that some on here have had such a terrible experience and I feel their frustration as I went through absolute hell with ASUS over my Crosshair IV Extreme. (Which is in a closet because ASUS sends broken used mobos back for RMAS). My advice for those who've had a bad experience with this mobo is to ensure you get the service to deserve and I hope your 2011 is running soon because it is beautiful.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty Design

Pros: I have another review on this motherboard where I gave it one egg as I had two defective boards in a row. I have just RMA'd the third board for a refund. I have had it and am giving up on this board. I did get it to boot initially, and restarted it a number of times during Windows installation. The first time I shut it down, it went completely dead, and the only way I got it going again was to pull the AC power and take out the coin battery and leave it overnight. This pattern repeated itself, and I cannot live with it. While I did have it running, I ran a Sandra memory bandwidth test and compared the results to an ASUS Rampage X79 Motherboard with the same CPU and memory. The ASUS ran 20% better results. It is a limited test to draw broad conclusions on, but after major problems with 3 of these boards in a row I am giving up on Giagbyte and going with ASUS. It also does not help that Gigabyte issued the F7 BIOS as a bandaid for defective components. They should recall all of these.

Cons: Defective components which instead of recalling and replacing them, Gigabyte chose to issue the F7 BIOS to cripple the overclocking capability. Terrible quality control.

Other Thoughts: A truly awful effort on Gigabyte's part.

5 out of 5 eggsList Memory Please!

Pros: Gigabyte name and reputation. Latest Intel 2011 socket. Cool color scheme looks great in my Danger Den "Double Wide".

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: For the reviewers that had troubles... can you please help out the rest of the community by posting what memory you used in your build? That would be very helpful for future buyers and for finding compatibility issues.

1 out of 5 eggsNice Board - if it worked.

Pros: Great board for hardcore overclockers. Excellent features on the MB for assisting with tweaking to get every last mhz from your CPU!

Cons: This board came DOA, couldnt get past the 6A BIOS Debug code. Nice there's a debug LED on the MB, too bad board was DOA. Gigabyte tech support was worthless. Had to google to find others with the same problem. Wireless "feature"

Other Thoughts: I ended up getting the G1.Assassin2 and enjoying the board. I liked the UD7 better in terms of features, just read all the people who have had DOAs or issues with this board. I don't think this MB is stable yet. Don't count on Gigabyte for any support. This board is BIG, make sure your case can support the size of this MB.

1 out of 5 eggs2 dead boards

Pros: The orange trim looks pretty.

Cons: First board was DOA, second board ran fine for 24 hours and died. Won't boot or throw a drdebug error code. I won't ever buy gigabyte again.

Other Thoughts: Newegg was cool about replacing the first board, even sent it overnight. Newegg... You're all right.

1 out of 5 eggsReliability Question

Pros: All the features I am looking for in a new X79 board.

Cons: I hope this board is not going to be the problem child of the Gigabyte line. The first board I ordered smoked as soon as I powered it up. The replacement board Newegg sent me was dead on arrival. It looked like an open box special or a prior return as the USB 3.0 accessory was missing and the wrap was off all the parts.

Other Thoughts: I am determined to get a good one and wring it out, but now they are out of stock and I will have to wait.

5 out of 5 eggsNot sure about Bios or board

Pros: I wrote a review about this being a good board because it booted up unlike my board before this and it ran nicely.
But that didnt last long. I was exceited and wrote a review about it being a great board. I was wrong.

Cons: A6 code over and over and over with constant boot looping. db code at start up and corrupt bios.
When Bios got corrupt it auto loaded the secondary bios Which ALSO happened to come corrupt. I never got to even attempt to overclock the board even past the OC button. Which I think that button may be what corrupted the BIOS

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte, PLEASE GET IT TOGETHER!! This is the second board I tried. I never had this issue with any product from you. And now TWO boards have went bad on me within a week of owning them. I cannot believe you have not released a newer bios. A6 on two different boards shows me you either dont have the Bios stable or the board is totally messed up. Now I dont know what to purchase. I need to wait until something happens but I also need my system up and running. Thank you Newegg for being fast with RMA process.

5 out of 5 eggsFaulty Reviews

Pros: This is the board in my next build. Chose it over the Gigabyte G1.Assassin2 because of 2 main reasons. #1 I prefer to have the additional PCI slots, and I don't value the Lan or Sound over the other features that this provides.

Cons: No real con, just upset at people leaving 1 Egg for a good product for something that isn't even Gigabyte's fault. They leave 1 Egg because the shipper messes up? Will Newegg filter those types of posts off of reviews eventually? Hurting a good product.

Other Thoughts: Great board, glad for the move to 2011 and the digital power control units!
