5 out of 5 eggsVery good motherboard

Pros: Very good motherboard for cheap price and good quality. I brought this MOB because of PCI slot is there. I have some old PCI card to use it and it have dual LAN connection.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat So Far

Pros: Very good mobo so far. Setup was easy and hasslefree. Plays nicely and runs cool with my i5 4690k. Nice tools for overclocking, especially for those who don't want to fiddle with BIOS.

Glad I bought another Gigabyte motherboard. My previous one was rock solid for 5 years right up until I replaced it with this one.

Cons: None so far.

2 out of 5 eggsGood for a day

Pros: It posted and ran. It was easy to put together. Smooth process and the bios made everything a breeze. I was pleased with it. I purchased all new parts for a computer because mine just died and it arrived fast enough to get me up and running again for college finals.

Cons: It died after one day. Not even a full day. It is stuck in a loop restart without even reaching the bios screen. I was in the middle of working on my finals paper for college when the computer turned off. I was horrified because I lost at least 2 full pages of work. The computer then proceeded to turn itself back on, then off, then on, etc. Frustrating. Its finals week the next two weeks, I had to elect to return for refund so I can go somewhere local and get a motherboard quick.

Other Thoughts: I did like this board. I wish I had the time to wait for a replacement in hopes it arrived working. I'm not happy with my experience with this though. I was wary over choosing this company but after looking at a hundred motherboards its what I chose. Now I wish I picked something else so I wasn't in such a bad predicament. This was my first gigabyte product so I'm uncertain yet how common this problem is.

5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent!

Pros: Great bells and whistles, "future proof," solid qualify and workmanship and works perfectly! Packed with features and great expandability options! On -board graphics works great in a situation where you don't need an additional graphics card. BIOS is pretty and easy to navigate.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: My last three systems have all used Gigabyte motherboards, and I have never been disappointed! This one exceeds expectations. I was shocked when I first powered up, there are orange LED's outlining the board. Looks great. THis design is by far one of the best out there.

1 out of 5 eggsUntested drivers turn a 5 star product into a nightmare build.

Pros: Great design, shipped with the F8 bios that support the very latest intel CPU's. Stylish design, black with orange led lighting. The SATA ports are located in a way that allow me to snake all the SATA cables into the holes provided by my case. The LED diagnostic readouts, the power and reset switches built into the motherboard make testing this motherboard before installing it into a case an absolute dream.

Cons: If you download and install all the latest drivers for Windows 7 64 bit version from gigabytes support site, the end result is a system that will not recognize ANY of my half dozen USB keyboards. It took me 3 clean installs days to figure out the true source of the problem.

Other Thoughts: I love gigabytes products, but its entirely unacceptable that using their latest bios and the latest drivers officially recommended and downloaded from gigabyte renders your motherboard entirely useless.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in hackintosh Yosemite build

Pros: My first pc build in 15 years. Decided to make a hackintosh build, forums said the udh3 board worked, and after a few reboots to enable some advanced bios settings, I have a Mac Pro at a 1/3 the price. Paired with i7-4790k and 16 gb 2133 g skill ram. Great board. Good bios setup.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Will buy gigabyte boards again!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat overclocking. Adequate video

Pros: Works without much fuss. Plenty of connectivity (and I needed all the SATA ports). Easy to overclock. Gigabyte App center provides good control/monitoring from Windows.

Cons: Onboard video doesn't seem to work as well as advertised. Drives one display just fine, but for the life of me I couldn't get it to run two displays at full resolution when one is a 2560x1440. Always drops down to 1920x1080 whether HDMI or DVI is used. I had a spare video card that let me drive both displays, but this was a bit disappointing as I'd hoped to use strictly onboard graphics on this build.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a work of art

Pros: I decided to try this board after tiring of the excessive feature-itis of a vendor who shall remain nameless. This board offered exactly what I wanted without a steaming pile of extraneous bells, whistles and destabilizing features that sound good in theory but in practice cause nothing but endless trouble.

I was very impressed by the physical board design. It is extremely clean. There are essentially no glue chips littering the board surface. The bios is clear and to the point. The board itself was completely functional out of the box without the need for any diagnosis, tweaking, or google-foo. No drama whatsoever.

It's been running Linux for several months now, and is totally stable. I've not overclocked it, as it went into a server.

I'll definitely buy Gigabyte again.

Cons: Only that I didn't try Gigabyte sooner.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Makes Awesome

Pros: On my 3rd Gigabyte board and first Intel build. So many great features like sata express 6 and a ton of usb 3.0 inputs. Love the fact that it has a power button on the board! never seen that and definitely can speed up the build/test time. once the bios is all set, you can set it the board to a rapid mode. paired with an ssd this thing boots into windows 8 within 10 seconds! i cant even get into the bios!

Cons: bummed about the limited sata express ports for a full size gigabyte atx board... but i knew what i was purchasing. the previous gygabyte board had 8 or 10. the information given on the sata\raid connectivity is limited and confusing. I wanted to get more information on how many drives I can raid since I was going to do a raid 5 array with 6 drives. Ended making a raid array with 3 drives through windows to test for now.

Other Thoughts: This is my most expensive build and gigabyte was on my wish list. I have used big brands like ASUS and MSI, and have not been this impressed. The board came with a Nvidia SLI bridge, but I was able to use ATI Crossfire (2 ATI cards) without any problems.

4 out of 5 eggsGood featured motherboard with some minor limitations

Pros: This is a nice full-featured general purpose motherboard with plenty of SATA ports, and ready for the SATA Express drives whenever they become available. You will want to install the system software to enable to fast boot option for the BIOS, and be sure to enable the XMP Profile 1 in the BIOS. The motherboard is ready for a two-way SLI or three-way Crossfire configuration. This motherboard has also been well-reviewed by multiple review sites. This is better than the slightly cheaper UD3H board with more ports, but I recommend comparing the two.

Cons: This are more nitpicking than actual faults: The 16x PCI Express slot is at the same location at the SATA ports, so for a long video card such as a Gigabyte GV-N980G1 GAMING-4GD, the card will hang over those ports. For the CPU cooler, I would recommend using a AIO Liquid Cooler over a air cooler, otherwise, you may not be able to access the m.2 slot and may have possible interference with the 16x PCI Express Slot. LAN ports are not clearly labeled as to which is the Killer LAN and which is the Intel LAN port, and there is no idea of the advantage of one port over the other. Also, there are only two internal USB 2.0 and one internal USB 3.0 headers, but I can forgive this because there are plenty of USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports at the back.

Other Thoughts: System configuration: i7-4790K processor, Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H motherboard, Gigabyte GV-N980G1 GAMING-4GD, Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600, Samsung 840 EVO 500GB 2.5" SSD, Acer H276HLbmid 27.0" via DVI, Thermaltake Chaser A71 ATX Full Tower case.
