2 out of 5 eggsCPU graphics errors

Pros: Affordable z87, all around good specs, Hackintosh compatible and easy, and works well with Ubuntu with minimal fuss/configuration.

UEFI is OK and gets the job done though I wish it was skinned with less bling and frills; call me old school but I preferred the no frills aesthetic simplicity of a plain 'ol BIOS.

Cons: In my experience with Windows 8 & 8.1 using the integrated/CPU graphics: If
A) the monitor isn't powered on before booting up or
B) the monitor is turned off and back on again while the computer is running, all audio functions will break and can't be repaired without restart. REALLY ANNOYING! I didn't spend good money for bad quality.

Customer support was a bit rude and patronizing without being much help; they insisted that it was a problem with Windows. There may be something to that since I didn't have the problem on Ubuntu but I'll hazard to say that it has more to do with THEIR drivers, UEFI, or hardware than Microsoft. Blame shifting.

Also, the board is a little flimsier around the RAM modules than I would like but I think that's mostly due to the placement of the RAM in relation to the board mounts. I wouldn't knock a single egg for just this but it's worth mentioning and understanding.

Other Thoughts: Google this board's model number and you'll find that it, along with many other Gigabyte boards, has the aforementioned audio error when toggling the monitor power. It's been about a decade since I last purchased a Gigabyte product and now I wish that I'd just gone through the extra hassle of hackintosh'ing a different brand board- lesson learned.

After installing a discrete graphics card, the issue goes away- which isn't what I wanted to have to do.

System specs:

i5-4670k
this board, GA-Z87-HD3
CPU graphics
8gb ram
1 ssd
2 hdd
Windows 8.1, Mavericks, Ubuntu

I'm displeased with the quality of the product for what I paid. After spending waaaay too much time researching, troubleshooting, and talking to condescending tele product support personnel in hopes of a proper fix, I am jaded to the Gigabyte brand. I was warned not to use Gigabyte and I regret not acting on that advice.

PS: I wish I'd purchased from Newegg but I needed the hardware in a pinch.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -easy to install.
-no problems installing CPU, memory, and GPU.
-BIOS was easy to navigate and get computer set up.
-no problems so far.
-reasonable price (got it when Newegg had it on sale).

Cons: - the holes on the one side for mounting the board could be farther out, because the board flexes more when putting in the memory sticks.

Other Thoughts: Great MOB so far and big improvement of my old computer which is 7 years old. I would definitely buy another Gigabyte MOB.

5 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby.

Pros: - Very sturdy board that does not flex very easily.
- Relatively future-proof. I shouldn't have to buy a new motherboard to upgrade my other components for a while to come.
- Nifty-looking BIOS, with lots of options.

Cons: - None thus far.

Other Thoughts: The board was a bit larger than I expected and my case didn't have enough places to support the motherboard completely, but this didn't really present a problem.

3 out of 5 eggsnot a UEFI board

Pros: Nicely laid-out board. Looks good, SATA ports not on their side - come straight up from the board. Lots of USB3. Well-priced for the features.

Cons: Not UEFI ready. Read another review of higher-end board where boot process takes minutes - yes minutes - and this board does the same thing if you use UEFI settings. Definitely not ready for other than BIOS config.

Other Thoughts: Running F7 the board came on. Sadly, nothing newer, and that's been out since January (it's the end of April 2014). Nothing newer even on TW site for Gigabyte. Hopefully I can get Windows to boot reliably, and without waiting for minutes, once I stick with BIOS config.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far REALLY GOOD MOTHERBOARD!

Pros: NIce motherboard. Good features. ALOT of usb ports and ALOT of fan headers for cases with built in fans.

Cons: None so far. Very durable...but not a con LOL

Other Thoughts: Straightforward bios setup. Very detailed and modern. However I would like to say that if you put in RAM that is clocked at 1600mhz you MUST go into the bios and enable XMP. Other wise the MB will downclock your RAM frequency to 1333.3 instead.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent board, worked right away

Pros: Board works, has plenty of expansion slots and usb for now, better layout than my old board.

Cons: Locks for the memory slots are flimsy. One broke off just while opening it to install my RAM and another feels loose and close to breaking, despite the gentlest of nudges with my tiny female fingers.

Other Thoughts: As long as my RAM continues to work without reseating a bunch, I'll be happy enough.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good!

Pros: Lots of USB 3 & 2!

Cons: None that I see right now!

Other Thoughts: Everything seems to work as advertised! I am loving having all the USB Ports that I did not have in my old system! Everything was well labeled in the book and the board, this made for a smooth install!

1 out of 5 eggsNo Add On Video Cards at POST

Pros: Works fine, Until you actually want decent video which dsub can't supply to a second monitor.

Cons: Uodated BIOS to F6, and now my Raid0 SSDs can't be seen correctly so now i have no OS! The first 2 boots after the update allowed add-on video card to be seen at post but once i re enabled the needed items to see raid, Video card was gone again. Seems raid and add-on video card don play well together?? I am really disappointed.
