4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: BIOS/UEFI easy to set up once you figure out a few idiosyncrosies (see other thoughts)

Dual band wifi, displayport on board, lots of USB ports

Cons: Location of RAM slots + Corsair 250d + H100i cooler meant I had to install the in the board before I put the board in the case, and if I want to swap the ram at some point I'll probably have to pull it out.

I wasn't able to get the onboard video ports to work, but didn't try very long because I had a GPU installed and suspect that is the reason why.

Other Thoughts: First full build after tinkering with minor upgrades for a long time.

I used overclocked ram and didn't understand the way to set it at first, electing to manually set it to 1600. When I later figured out how to use the profile, I set the profile to 2400 only to discover it wouldn't go over 1600. It turns out that in the two different BIOS screens (a new version and "classic"), not all settings are visible in classic. My manual setting of 1600 was overriding the automatic use in hte profile. Once I set it to automatic and left the profile, the ram was overclocked properly.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Z97-N Gaming 5

Pros: This motherboard has almost anything and everything you would need from a mini itx board. No, it is not meant to overclock a core i7 to 5 ghz at high voltage. It is simply a board that is reliable, can do some overclocking if wanted and packs all of the necessary features at an affordable price. I had 3 maximus 6 impacts from Asus die on me, so I decided to go with Gigabyte and guess what, it actually works. If you are deciding whether or not to get this board, if you need a good board at an affordable price, this is for you.

Cons: The only con I could possibly list is that this board does not have many fan connectors. I just simply bought a 5 dollar fan splitter and it is work fine now.

Other Thoughts: This is a well rounded board that can punch high above its weight class in terms of feature set to price.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Board - RAM Slot DOA

Pros: Nice board. Packed with features

Cons: Because it is a Mini ITX board everything is packed super tight. I also received mine with a DOA Ram Slot.

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid.

Pros: Looks great, runs flawlessly, huge feature-set for its size.

Cons: Maybe a little pricey, but in line with the features.

Other Thoughts: I got my copy right after release and it's been trucking along with zero issues since day 1. Posted fine on first run, no bad memory slots, and no issues detecting HDMI or video card.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems fine

Pros: - no major installation issues
- seems to do everything it ought to

Cons: - difficult to attach cpu fan (probably my fault)
- wi-fi seems has gremlins-- when starting up after hard shut down it never seems to work. Must restart machine-- usually works then. Running Windows 8.1, have tried several driver configurations.

Other Thoughts: I went to this board over another because reviews reported the other board had wi-fi issues. Naturally I am nonplussed to find experienced the same with this one. At least it WORKS after finagling. Naturally I'm scared to even try the Bluetooth, but fortunately have no compatible devices.

Would have liked to see M.2 or SATA Express

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Wrangled for a while on whether or not to get this board for my first ITX build, but was swayed by the great onboard audio (ALC1150) and fast Intel WiFi. I was also pleasantly surprised by the board's layout, which didn't have any annoying placement quirks to mess up cable management. Red lighting from the audio area of the motherboard adds a nice subtle glow out of the side vents on my case.

Cons: It's perhaps a little expensive for an ITX board, though you're getting a very high quality piece kit. A weird issue also has the motherboard mis-identifying my processor as a Core i3-4330 (it's actually an i3-4150) but everything is running at the right speeds, so I don't think that deserves losing an egg.

Other Thoughts: I can happily say that I have not suffered from the problems that other reviewers seem to be having, such as dead RAM slots and issues with graphics card identification (using F3 BIOS version).

My system specs:

Intel Core i3-4150
Gigabyte Z97N Gaming 5
8GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3-1600 RAM
256GB Crucial MX100 SSD
EVGA GTX 750Ti Superclocked Graphics Card
Cooler Master V550 Power Supply
Cooler Master Elite 130 Case

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to first post

Pros: There would be some pros if it actually worked.

Cons: Refuses to POST and falls into a reboot cycle once a PCI-E 3.0 card is hooked up. The system will only working normal if I pull the card out, set the PCI-E speed to Gen1. I was running the newest F3 also. After checking out Gigabyte's forums, I'm not the only one. Contacted support to relay the information to the BIOS team to see if maybe it was a issue with my 4GB GTX 760, but it seems it's the board. Ended up buying an Asus Z97I-PLUS and haven't looked back. I should have went with that board in the first place for my Mini-ITX build. I'm currently RMA'ing the board so I can just sell the replacement and recoup my losses. Wasted a good two months trying to diagnose my system when all along it was the motherboard. I was loyal to Gigabyte these past few years, but this was honestly a joke of an experience.

Other Thoughts: My build specs:
Corsair 250D
Corsair H100i
Intel Core i5 4670K @ 4.4 GHz 1.175v
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133 MHz CL9
Asus Z97I-PLUS (previously Gigabyte Z97N Gaming 5)
EVGA GTX 760 4GB SC ACX
EVGA NEX650G PSU
Samsung 840 PRO SSD

Pros: This motherboard is not working as you can expected

1 out of 5 eggsWon't post

Pros: None so far...the board would need to actually post first.

Cons: I read the forums and understand that with a Devil's Canyon CPU you need to have the latest bios. However I figured after being on the market for a bit after the 4790k came out I would be covered. Apparently wrong. Currently awaiting gigabyte support to respond.

Other Thoughts: Extremely frustrated because I went on a limb and bought a non ASUS board and sure enough it doesn't function. This never happens any of my other ASUS boards.

2 out of 5 eggsRam Slot Failure

Pros: - Board looks good and the layout works for me.
- Has the right number of inputs
- Bios seems filled with features

Cons: - Memory slot DOA.
- PC was going in an endless boot loop where it would keep on restart. Problem was one of the slots wouldn't recognize my memory. I tried both my memory sticks on the other slot and the PC booted fine.
