4 out of 5 eggsWorks fine, easy to access BIOS and pretty decent performance.

Pros: So far, everything works great in this MoBo, easy to work with and the board itself seems sturdy enough.

Cons: When I received this MoBo, I noticed a random spring lodged into one of my USB Pin ports, it really sketched me out and I was worried trying to figure out where it would belong and why it would fall off to easily. I later found out in belonged to a pin that was holding down a plastic cover near the CPU slot. It made the product feel really cheap, which was a bit disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it still gets the job done and is not enough to deter me from buying another Gigabyte product.

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: Everything was supposed to work with this board and it did. It isn't an overly large board and has just enough room for everything on it not to be too crowded.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is a really good board that does exactly what it says real well. There is only 1 video card slot. I wasn't overly impressed with how sturdy this board is so I used to screws on the heavy video card. It's just a good running, solid board that does what it is supposed to.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Lots of BIOS features convenient for overclocking. Solid (both physically and metaphorically). Price to feature ratio is great.

Cons: No issues thus far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Success POST on first attempt with 4770k CPU! Runs great. No crashing while playing hours of Rage, Dark Souls, and Star Craft II. Board not getting overheated at all. 4 RAM slots. Dual Bios

Cons: BIOS may be a little off. I clicked on option while checking things out (can't recall which one) and everything just froze. Rebooted and everything was fine. Only one graphic card slot, but additional slots was not a requirement of mine.

Other Thoughts: I tried 3 other boards ranging from 230-270$ for a known-working 2011 socket Sandy Bridge a friend offered to sell me. None worked. Decided to go with 1150 socket and had total success and zero problems using this motherboard and a 4770k CPU as the base for my build.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MB

Pros: This is a great MB with lots of options, ports, and settings. This board gives you a lot of flexibility at a great price with a good feature set.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I dropped this into a new build and it works great, on first power up it found everything as expected but had many options allowing me to overclock and adjust almost everything I could think of.

4 out of 5 eggsnice board

Pros: Nice board and very good layout. Have always liked Gigabyte boards. Has a good bios program which came in handy.

Cons: Very picky about what slots are used for memory. When I first fired up my new build, the system kept restarting, got a message about corrupt bios and the board ran a backup bios which was successful and then I had to place the memory in slot 1 and 2, 2x8 gigs of kingston hyperx, instead of slot 1 and 3 as indicated by the user manual to install the 2 memory sticks. If you use 2 sticks of ram, make sure you place them in slot 1 and 2. You cannot go by the manual.

Other Thoughts: After fixing the issues I had, everything seems to be running fine for the moment. Gigabytes makes good quality motherboards and their dual bios comes in very handy.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo

Pros: fast booting, UEFI, pretty intuitive, good feature set

Cons: none.....yet!
