5 out of 5 eggsAstounding, Gigabyte really pulled through.

Pros: Astounding. Simply astounding. This would definitely be my favorite Z97 board. For the price they are asking, it really packs a punch.

The main reason I got this board was so that I could crossfire my cards in the first and third slot for extra cooling, and this board has had no issues with my cards :)

But when it comes to the bios, nothing but awesomeness. Very easy to navigate, and well layed out. The overclocking is also perfect, got my 4790K up to 4.8 GHz with no problems. Also, when it comes to features, this board has you covered!

Last thing: On-board sound! I have a $80 FiiO E10K, and I actually prefer the sound from the motherboard. So even if you have very expensive headphones like me, this board will suit your needs!

Cons: Orange :3

I am actually loving the orange, and it fits my red build nicely. No complaints here! But if you're not an orange kind of guy, this may be a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: Get it while you can! I love this thing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Bios are very clean and easy to navigate. Installation was a breeze and I'm excited to try my hand at overclocking this board. Also aesthetically I couldn't have asked for a better orange board for my system.

Cons: Not really a con because it lists it in the specifications but it can only support 4 graphics cards in crossfire. Due to its lack of 8x support you can only run 2 way SLI.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good looking fully OC funtional motherboard

Cons: If you use a PCIE 1x sound card it is impossible to use the slot on this motherboard since they decided to put the PCI express 3.0 x16 right next to it meaning if you have a double slot card it blocks the x1 slot

5 out of 5 eggsGigaGREAT as usual

Pros: Good components, more knobs for OC than I'll ever need, good power delivery to cpu (and additional power delivery to PCI if you need for mutli-GPU setups). Love the color scheme too. Very stable board even on OC, as I've come to expect from gigabyte.

Cons: 4 cpu phases (FORCE edition has 8 phases) but doesn't seem to be holding back OC's under water, on first boot board had my 4790k running at 1.4V for some reason but just manually set it.

Other Thoughts: 4790k @ 4.84ghz with 47x and 104 BLK with 1.30Vcore and 1.15Vring

5 out of 5 eggsToned down Force

Pros: Pretty much chose this board because of the black/orange scheme to fit my build. But non the less, the board itself is pretty awesome. Plenty amount of USB ports, PCI slots, a lot of 4-pin fan headers, and a lot of features I probably won't ever touch.

Cons: BIOS isn't necessary straightforward but a small look at the manual will help that.

Other Thoughts: I found this to be a good toned down, cheaper, version of the FORCE version of this board, which is perfect for me. It offers a lot while being pretty much the only black/orange board for Z97.

I recommend going into the BIOS and checking the main things from RAM to CPU Voltage as the AUTO settings were pretty wrong, especially for CPU Voltage. Just a heads up.
