5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo

Pros: Fast mobo, everything I put in works great with it. Ultra fast boot option is just that ultra fast.

Cons: I wish they had of given the m.2 slot its own sata channel. Having 4 slots while using a m.2 drive is a tad annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good board

Pros: nice board, lots of options to adjust settings, has great features

Cons: even though my memory was listed on the approved list for this board I had to manual set it up before it would boot correctly. Plug and play didn't work for the RAM on this board. Once it was configured it runs like a champ and is very quick.

Other Thoughts: I dropped an i7 4970K with a liquid cooler and this board did a great job when playing with the OC settings and runs like a dream.

1 out of 5 eggsUnsatisfactory

Pros: N/A

Cons: Board arrived with power issues. It would take 3-4 reboot cycles before it would finally boot, and after about 4 or 5 days, would not boot at all. Poor quality.

Other Thoughts: I recommend a more reliable brand, I was using Gigabyte for all of my customer PC builds, but no longer, as this is not the first time I have had issues with a Gigabyte product. I am going to find a new brand.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent; a few quirks

Pros: It boasts a pretty sleek design, very easy on the eye.
It has USB 3.0, which is really nice.
The new BIOS is pretty cool, although probably a bit much. It's cool nonetheless.

Cons: This board isn't full atx, it's smaller than it should be. It looks so small in my full size case, and because of it's smaller size, it's very flimsy when you're trying to install components into the board. I would install your processor, ram, and anything else you can before putting the board in.

Other Thoughts: It's a decent board for the money, I got it a few bucks off on sale. If I had it to do over again I'd probably go with a different one.

Pros: Beautiful board
Everything is laid out very well. Makes for easy cable management.
Sound is noticeably better than my older Gigabyte board.

Cons: No speaker included
little smaller than an ATX board but I knew that when I bought it.
