1 out of 5 eggsLemon or just bad board

Pros: Bios options are nice and well explained

Cons: Poor overclock results
Wifi disconnection

Other Thoughts: I bought along with several pieces of high end gear. In the end, I can barely overclock my 4770k and wifi is constantly failing. Since I paid a huge premium for this board just to get on board wifi, I feel like I totally lost my money.

For the record, I had a pci wifi n card which I've added to test the wifi and I get solid results. Since I was told ac wireless was even stronger, I was hoping to at least get the same connection performance but not at all.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid MOBO with plenty of tweaks

Pros: Feature packed, Thunderbolt interface, well made.

Cons: Relatively easy to setup. Though, weird that you must have two Windows preinstall drivers on USB stick to complete the initial setup, but that's about it.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't Consistently Boot

Pros: Spec sheet is nice, BIOS easy to navigate and looks nice

Cons: About 75% of the time, the board gets hung during the boot process. Using their debug LEDs it gets hung at different stages without any consistency. If I reboot the PC enough times it will eventually make it through the boot, and once inside windows it is perfectly stable. I'm waiting for Gigabyte to acknowledge my RMA request.

Other Thoughts: On paper this board looks great, but it looks like I'm not the only one who is experiencing this issue.

1. Have you tried to isolate the problem by testing with the minimum system config: motherboard, CPU, onboard graphics, and 1 stick of memory module?

2. Is the Bios the most current?

1 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: none

Cons: I have tried to boot this board with ram in different locations, I have unhooked everything, still refuses to boot it is hung up in the boot process cant even get into bios..

Other Thoughts: It would seem that gigabyte would do better quality control and test each board before shipping

5 out of 5 eggsPlease Read

Pros: Just wanted to comment that a previous review indicated that this motherboard was thunderbolt 2.0. That would be FALSE. This motherboard only will support thunderbolt 1.0 and there are two ports.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsWorks once I got it going

Pros: Nice mobo layout, lots of fan headers and plenty of features to use.

I ended up getting this mobo on a different site..

Cons: I got very annoyed with this mobo -it wouldn't boot for me. So I went through all the troubleshooting. I finally got it to work by leaving in just 1 ram stick. The mobo would boot then go into the bios where it said "corrupted bios" then followed by the bios updating itself.

Once I got it going it worked pretty well.

3 out of 5 eggswheres the user manual

Pros: over all nice looking board have yet to get it up and running

Cons: the mobo comes w/ a guide book that refers you to a user manual for specifics, like how to wire this mobo up. it came with no user manual and the guide book is a disaster to use

Other Thoughts: im no tech guru this is my first build and the lack of a user manual has me scratching my head I hope I wired this mobo up right. oh cant find a user manual online :(
