5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Has everything I need, high quality, stable, good performance, good price.

Cons: My RAM timings are supposed to be 9-9-9-24, but the mobo defaulted to 11-11-11-28. This is a common issue and easy to fix. Enter BIOS at boot (F12) then in the M.I.T. section -> Advanced Memory Settings -> set Extreme Memory Profile to Profile 1. Save and exit.

Other Thoughts: Running great with the following:

RAM = G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB (2 x 4GB) Item #: N82E16820231428

CPU = Intel i5-3330 Item #: N82E16819116781

Can't overclock with this H77 chipset. Not a con because I don't OC.

No IDE interface. Not really a con because they're practically phased out now, but my old, trusty DVD drive was IDE so I had to buy a new one with a sata interface.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: This board is priced well, layed out well, and seems very well constructed. I had no problems with it what so ever. I needed this for a custom build, since new prefabs don't have old style PCI slots. Has HDMI out if you're using built in HD graphics, USB 3.0, andplenty of expansion slots.

Cons: I wish I would have noticed the mSATA earlier. I would have bought a mSATA SSD instead of a regular one.

1 out of 5 eggsJust too much trouble!

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No 2008 drivers, called Gigabyte and told to load Win7 64 bit - but USB 3.0 drivers not available for 64 bit. Ordered 2 of these - one came in version 1.0, the other version 2.0, go figure. Did get USB 3.0 to work finally. Must upgrade Bios before using new Ivy Bridge i5. One board made it 2 hours in customers office then died!

4 out of 5 eggsNice Board - RMA'd 1

Pros: This is a great board. It seems like it would be pretty easy to overclock based on bios settings, but my processor doesn't support it. This thing with an Ivy bridge processor is super easy to setup a Mountain Lion hack on. Lots of great features for such a low priced board.

Cons: This mother board did not come with the latest bios installed which was required for an Ivy bridge processor (mine is a Xeon E3-1230 V2). The computer will boot without the latest bios, but according to the manufacturer, the F5 bios is required, so I flashed it. The first one I ordered had to be RMA'd because memory slots 2 and 4 were shot. The computer just powered up for a couple of seconds and shut off, and did this continuously until it was switched off; all without posting.

Other Thoughts: While Newegg paid the shipping, I had to purchase cleaning solution and arctic silver heat sink compound to be able to remove and then replace the heat sink on the RMA'd board. I had a bad experience with this one board, but I think it's a nice board overall.

4 out of 5 eggsGood MB, once configured solid as a rock... Nextime i would have bought the Z77-ds3 for tweakage

Pros: Setup was pretty easy, System was up and running on first boot... Great control of memory timings for each RAM bank, the MB does all your voltages automatically. Loves my 4 GB x 2Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz DDR3 1.5v. Works well with my OCZ aglility 3 SSD and WD Black 1 and 1.5TB drives. Does allow you to change the CPU multiplier and Base clock.. though, my i5-3450 no runs at 3.5GHz-3.8Ghz... Hackintosh compatible.. Most voltages are automatically set and locked so u dont have too mess wtih anything.

Cons: Came with Bios F3, current is F5, No direct way to change VTT voltage on your RAM, no manual control over voltages... MB does it automatically. Drives you up the wall, make sure your RAM has an XMP profile, it will help stabilize the system. Only 5 SATA ports. U can change ur CPU's multiplier,BCLK, and Ram voltage but any advanced voltages changes are impossible. The mobo hated my Sapphire Radeon 5670 1GB GDDR5. I liked my 5670. Oh well guess im gonna have to grab a newer more compatible equivalent like a Radeon 7750 or Nvidia GT 640.

Other Thoughts: My 4th Gigabyte board, At first i was impressed with the polished look of the UEFI bios, but as time went on, It was so pesky. This mobo is picky about Video cards, my Sapphire Radeon 5670 1GB was very much unliked, it would freeze the system for a min at a time while watching streaming video, netflix youtube etc, Removed the 5670 and switched 2 integrated video on the Core i5-3450 CPU and now its smooth as silk, no freezes. Driver issues??? MAybe. Would i buy again, no.. i would have grabbed the Z77 version of this mobo for another $10 to tweak voltages . Overall this is a good buy for a budget to midrange system that will serve u well for years.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install. Clear markings on board for connections.

Cons: CPU fan port dead out of box. Had to use one of the sysfan ports to have fan run. This causes loss of PWM functionality
