5 out of 5 eggsGOOD BUY

Pros: Fired wright up on a 4690K Price 155$ plus free ship order at 10:00am Tues. got on Fri at 11 am. Running by 12:30 W8.1 it was on sale only reason for 8.1. 2133 ram I'll wait a week or more before the O.C. The colors go with my MSI 970 plus I have a red light 4 pipe cooler. I have 3-4-5-6-7 year old GIG M.B. that are still working. I did a AMD 6 core a few what a JOKE it runs but not a Good Gamer CPU bogs down. Why this INTEL they don't Bog.

Cons: For the Price NONE Free Ship and color matches Ram plus V.C.

Other Thoughts: My only complaint is there are 4 fan headers but 2 are at the very bottom and 2 are for CPU. a back up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard, Software Not So Much

Pros: This board fired right up with no problems running Windows 8.1 and an Intel Core i7-4790K at 4GHz. The EasyTune software was automatically able to overclock to 4.8GHz. The onboard 7-segment displays are great for identifying progress through the POST and boot up. Board is very sturdy and looks nice in a windowed case.

Cons: The heatsink on the PCH is a little flimsy and feels like it may fall off at some time. It seems it may also make the PCH run a little warmer than other components on the board. The AppCenter software really needs some more work. Every time I boot up it tells me there is a new version ready to be installed and when I click on the OK button to install the alleged new software it doesn't do anything. There are four system fan headers on the motherboard but the System Information Viewer software shows only three. Last week the System Information Viewer stopped showing the live status of the voltage, temperature and fan speed.

Other Thoughts: System configuration is
Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm SSO CPU Cooler
CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V
ASUS 24X DVD Burner
Corsair Vengeance (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin SDRAM DDR3 1600
Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 250GB Sata 6Gbs SSD
WD10EZRX 1TB SATA 6Gbs 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (2)
Corsair Carbide 300R Windowed ATX Mid Tower Case

5 out of 5 eggsGaming 7

Pros: Easy to overclock
Lots of SATA ports
M.2/Sata express support
On board power switch
Excleent on board audio
Gigabyte quality

Cons: Sys Fan 2, 3, and 4 headers all at the bottom of the board
Front audio header is a stretch for the front panel audio cable
As noted by others, heat sinks seem flimsy

Other Thoughts: I have a six-year-old Gigabyte EP45-UD3H board that is still running strong, but just felt the need to upgrade. The Gaming 7 and the UD5H are very similar - I got a better deal on the Gaming 7 and the soundblaster audio put it over the top. The UDH5 does appear to have better heat sinks and has an intel lan port in addition to killer.

Hooked up an i5 4690K, an SSD, 3 hard drives in raid 0, 3TB backup drive, gtx770, and 8GB 1866 ram - booted right up and has run smoothly with no issues.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Many features
Looks good enough
Has not failed
Very OC'able

Cons: -Noise

Other Thoughts: My only gripe with this motherboard is that even though Gigabyte has separated the audio PCB, I still hear noise coming through the speakers at high volume. I have verified that the noise is caused by the motherboard by plugging the speakers to a different computer. Apart from that, this motherboard is perfect for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Motherboard with EVERY connection you need

Pros: Plenty of connections of every kind for everything you need. It's an excellent starting point for building the Gaming PC of your dreams. The LED path looks insanely cool, and the on-board power switch makes testing things easy and safe. I suggest this motherboard for anyone looking for a good one.

Cons: None, but you should know that Express SATA doesn't exist yet, even if there's a connection for it on the board. That confused me for a few hours.

4 out of 5 eggsI take it back

Pros: Wow. Stress tested 0 Problems. LED's are so cool. Card sags a little but you know it happens with a huge 770 but hey. Audio on this thing is actually great!. Killer networking is wow.

Cons: Weird padding on the I/) shield made installing strange. But otherwise I wrote a bad review because I got a DOA one. But this on was Alive. Love this board so far.

Other Thoughts: Go ahead try out gigabyte. Newegg also handled my return but if not gigabyte was gonna dive right in with me!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard, severely underrated. After a BIOS update (which I highly suggest), overclocking was super simple. The debug and bios redundancy is a great feature and is overall a well built motherboard.

Cons: None really. Solid setup.

Other Thoughts: The BIOS/UEFI is a bit frankensteinish, but I think GIGABYTE will fix these along the way, not enough for me to drop an egg for it.

2 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 7

Pros: Looked great

Cons: The cpu socket came with bent pins! Newegg has always been good to me. But I am not thrilled this time and to think my PC would be running in 1 night. Will change eggs after the RMA is done. Hopefully without any pain.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks Amazing

Pros: 4 usb 2.0 & 4 usb 3.0 plugs in the back, 8 sata3 ports, easy to set up, looks great, what more could you want?

Cons: not all the fan headers are 4 pin, and only 2 usb 2.0 internal headers, and it would of been nice if all of the lights on the MoBo were red instead of all red with 2 orange lights on the right side. but nothing i can knock off a egg for really.

Other Thoughts: looks amazing in my case.
