5 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard

Pros: I had no trouble connecting anything to the motherboard. Having several fan connectors was very convenient. The UEFI/BIOS screen is nice, lots of options for those inclined to tweak things.

Cons: I seem to have an issue copying data from one drive to another - it takes far longer than it should, far longer than it took on my 8-year-old computer. I have not yet discovered if it's the fault of the hardware or if I just need to change some settings in BIOS.

Pros: So far, none

Cons: I will be returning this today and will amend this review after I get the new board - So far, it won't even let the power supply turn on - something is bad with the board.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality Design

Pros: Value-priced board. Plenty of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports.

Cons: Rear audio port picked up electrical noise from inside the case, making this board useless. BIOS did not automatically disable integrated Intel HD Graphics when I installed a graphics card, causing problems during boot and wasting memory (problems disappeared when manually disabled). BIOS also contains confusing a legacy setting that no longer has any practical use.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my needs

Pros: It worked out of the box which is always a bonus :)
Not expensive - it won't break the bank
Simple, easy, straightforward, BIOS
6 SATA III connects is a decent enough amount
Has M2 or SATA Express (you can't use both at the same time, and it reduces SATA III connects)
Why pay more if this is all you need? Calculate your needs. If there's no need to overclock or go flash then this might be your board. I would not recommend this for multi GPU use because of the PCIe lane limitations, but for a single GPU this is great.

I've had no CPU, PSU, USB 3 or sound problems. I find the rear panel sound to be quite good through my Sennheiser phones - I don't have speakers hooked up. I've also not tested the onboard graphics as I have a discreet card.

Cons: As others have mentioned there is the issue with the PCIe lanes that you need to know about before you buy the board. Not a defect, but a caveat. If you use the M2 slot you will reduce the PCIe to x8, rather than the full x16 Not a big deal if you aren't planning to use M2, But if you are, buyer beware.

One of the fan headers is in an awkward place in the middle of the board; almost like it was an afterthought.

Other Thoughts: I've had this for about 4 months now. I installed an i7 4790 (non-k), 24 Gb GSKill RAM (yes 24Gb) , a GTX 650 Ti Boost, 3 HDD's, an SSD, 620 W PSU, USB peripherals, and it's been all good.

I was pleasantly surprised with how this board worked with my RAM. I initially had 16Gb (4x4) GSKill Ripjaws 1600 that are not on the boards memory support list

I ran them in XMP to get the rated 1600 cl8. No problem, all good.
But then I decided to try pulling two sticks (2x4) and adding 16Gb (2x8) for a total of 24Gb.The new RAMis here

They are very similar but cl9 and obviously the higher capacity.

Well with a few tweaks I managed to get both kits to play nice and now I have 24Gb running in dual channels (actually flex) Channel A 8Gb (2x4) and Channel B 16Gb (2x8) @ cl9 which is the slower cas of the two. Still very reasonable.

And it runs stable and great. You can run memory in Manual Individual mode that will allow you to set different timings for the different channels - perfect for what I was trying to do. I figure that's a pretty sweet feature for a cheaper board.

This board.is just a really nicely laid out (mostly), simple, no flash board with a few extras that you won't find on other boards in this range. It was the only H97 board I could find in this price range that offered SATA III, M2 and SATA Express options, despite the aforementioned limitations.

I have zero regrets with this board and I'd recommend it based on my positive experience so far, for others who think this board may suit their needs also.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board (note PSU Issue)

Pros: Solid ATX board and nice to install. Good access to ports and plugs. Easy BIOS to use. My system flies - i5-4460, 120gb SSD running the OS, Ripjaw 8gb. I think this Gigabyte motherboard is a great value. Newegg service was great, as well!

Cons: I tried to build the system with and older ATX PSU (350 watt, 20 pin and 2 X 4 pin plugs). Gigabyte recommends a minimum 500 watt PSU and I guess they mean it because my system wouldn't even flicker with the older PSU. No POST, no LED, no fans. I thought I had a dead board. After the usual routine - clear CMOS unplug peripherals, check cabling, swearing, etc,etc... I tried a modern PSU (24 pin, 8 pin plugs) and viola! All is well. The internet didn't yield much in the way of advice on PSU plug configuration and Gigabyte support was completely useless (I'm still waiting for a response). So, all you novice builders out there (like me) could keep this in mind. Get a new PSU with your new system, save yourself some frustration!

4 out of 5 eggsBeware of you CPU

Pros: Cheapish
low power consumption
great bios
smooth install if you are not using a server os

Cons: Embedded network driver does not work with windows servers, there is hack fix for it which works without too much hassel.

There is no way to select which PCIe cards are used. Just because there are enough slots for your purposes doesn't mean you can use them all. Be sure to check your CPU before you try to jam a bunch of cards onto this thing because there is a limited amount of bandwidth. With my i5-4690K I had to pick between 2 8x ports or 1 8x and 2 1x cards. I only need an additional 4x slot to work at the same time.
