Humidity Protection with New Glass Fabric PCB

There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions.

Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.

1 out of 5 eggsReceived 2 DOAs in a row!

Pros: Its cheap and has a lot of great features, Sli, HD audio etc.
Unfortunately its all too good to be true...

Cons: I ordered this motherboard TWICE both times it was unable to run with dual channel memory. The computer would go into an endless loop of boot/shutdown when attempting to run dual channel. I am REALLY disappointed and have gotten a refund. Long story short, 2/2 times I received DOAs I am not willing to gamble again be getting lucky with another replacement.

Other Thoughts: If you are considering this motherboard, think twice before you purchase, because there is AT LEAST a 25% DOA rate since I got 2 DOA IN A ROW!!

1 out of 5 eggsIf only Win7 accurately reported CPU speeds

Pros: Looks flashy
Amplified Audio output
Accomodates all the standard stuff

Cons: Throttled CPU to minimum speed*
Supposedly user friendly BIOS are a nightmare unless you seriously know Overclocking.

Other Thoughts: *So I installed and ran this motherboard for a couple weeks before reading up on overclocking enough to try it. Upon starting Windows (7) it will tell you your processor name, not the ACTUAL processor speed, so it reported i5 4690K 3.5GHz. Upon running the popular freeware CPU-Z (for overclocking) however I found that my CPU is being throttled to its minimum speed. I called Gigabyte support and after an hour of twiddling with settings their response was: Ask Newegg for a new motherboard.
Well, what with having run it for the couple weeks and all I'm over the 30day limit, so there goes that $100 bucks down the drain. Thanks Gigabyte.

5 out of 5 eggsThis MB is what you are looking for.

Pros: If you are looking for a very solid MB for either gaming or work this one is always a good fit. I did a lot of searching for two specific things:
1) The higher end Realtek audio chipset (this one has it)
2) On-board Intel Gigabit NIC ONLY and absolutely NO Atheros Killer NIC because of the never ending software issues with them.

You can't find that combo on most Z97 boards. This one has it and is inexpensive also.

Cons: It doesn't have the power phases to be a top tier overclocker, but you aren't paying for that either so not really a con.

1 out of 5 eggs2 defective in 10 months

Pros: None

Cons: It is my second motherboard from gigabyte that break in the last 10 months. The first one last about 8 months and the second one about 10 minutes. I was loving the idea of building my own pc, but now I just regret it! I don't recomand anyone to build a pc with gigabyte's products unless hou want to throw your money by the window!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: So far so good. Everything is functioning perfectly. All memory slots work and all rear connections are working. Really like the BIOS for this chipset. Lots of advanced features. Installed I5-4670K and booted up first try no need to flash BIOS.

Cons: None that I care about

Other Thoughts: GA-Z97X-SLI with
Intel I-5 4670K booted no problem first try.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Part of my very first full system build, after rebuilding and repairing for 15 plus years. It has a nice layout compared to all the dells I've been fixing. M.2 slot is nice for future additions.

Cons: It has a very bright red light when powered on, I didn't know about this. Not really a problem, but all my other lights are blue.
The I/O shield is horrible looking, just metal and no print or painting. The main connection from the power supply was VERY hard to seat.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with my overall first build!

1 out of 5 eggsBAD BOARD - Power Cycling

Pros: None - Bad Board.

Cons: Powercycling.

Won't work with more than one RAM stick in.
(Putting in two caused powercycling)
Won't work if a GPU is plugged in.
(Causes powercycling)

I have a strong enough power supply (750W) to operate this board and a GPU.

Other Thoughts: I'm just disappointed with GIGABYTE. This board has a ~25% failure rate based on reviews alone.

5 out of 5 eggsFun new stuff for me

Pros: Knowing my old XP was about to be pushed under the truck by MS I decided to ask the advice of a tech person I know as to what would work good for me. This is the mother board he recommended along with all the other parts needed. I use my computer for various things. Everything from creating animation to playing on line, working with all Word apps and creating cute cards using Hallmark app, playing with pictures with a distortion app and fine tuning pictures with a Corel app. Like I said I do all kinds of things and more. I do play games however I am not a hard core gamer yet do know that Bioshock played great.. As of yet I have had no issue that I can see in any of the things I do. It starts up fast because of the SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW which I chose to have windows 7 installed to. Graphics are wonderful most likely because of the GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SLI LGA (yes I know there are betters card however it was not needed for the things I do). I have two DVD drives and two internal hd storage units, all respond and do as they are suppose to. All in all I am very happy with the choices that were given to me for my new computer.

Cons: Have not had any issues as of yet. Might be because I had my friend who is a tech recommend parts, housing and build my new computer for me. I will state the only con found while having my new computer built was that my friend recommended that a larger cpu fan be installed as well (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO ). The case I chose was the Rosewill Blackhawk Gaming ATX Mid Tower which has plenty of fans and room to install another on top. Because the Cool Master profile was to large (about an 1/8 of an inch) the side fan on the Blackhawk had to be moved to the top which is no big as it still is in use.
