4 out of 5 eggsSmall bluetooth problem, small board

Pros: It is tiny and has all the major components of the other boards. Plenty of USB 3.0.

Cons: Bluetooth adapter or card was a bit sporadic. Sometimes I had to uninstall and re-install the bluetooth driver to get it to work. As of the past week I have not had another problem though(I just jinxed it...)

Other Thoughts: My RAM will not go to the advertised speed. I assume it is RAM related problem, but it is possible the BIOS is a bit strange.

2 out of 5 eggsSome early troubles

Pros: see other

Cons: see other

Other Thoughts: The box was a bit damaged at the front edge when I got it (not the shipping box but the mobo box) so I was leery of the motherboard from the start. I had some difficulty attaching the front I/O as for whatever reason, my case front connectors and the motherboard pins did not align well and I had to twist the connectors all out of whack. Thankfully it worked the first time. The system fan header only seems to provide 5V and the pin layout in the manual is also out of whack compared to a normal layout. This has actually been a problem for Gigabyte for years, which I found out by digging up old threads on the interwebs. I just didn't use it period. The BIOS does not display properly on my TV which I use as a monitor (my old Asus mobo did not have this issue), and i had to lug out an old monitor to change BIOS settings. The CPU fan control did not work properly and only after a BIOS update did it properly spin down for silent operation.

My old hard drive, which I had no issue whatsoever until I plugged it into the mobo, started freezing the boot process and making the Gigabyte logo constantly restart. It is a secondary storage drive. No matter what order I tried, it would not boot. However, it has absolutely no trouble in my old rig. I backed up my files and formatted the drive, and at least now it would boot, but will appear and disappear intermittently, and freeze the windows logo for a good minute while it makes this sickening startup sound. It also intermittently gives SMART messages in windows, sometimes passing, sometimes failing. The drive was absolutely perfectly fine until I connected it to the gigabyte motherboard. I have removed it and replaced it with a new toshiba drive, but I am also leery as this drive also has a rather loud startup sound, but so far no failure messages or freezeups. It may be coincidence, but I keep getting an unsettling feeling this motherboard will eventually ruin anything attached to it.

4 out of 5 eggsQuestionable

Pros: Small form factor with enough Sata ports to store everything I want. This thing is a little powerhouse. I am using it as an HDTV/HTPC, and not for gaming. Easy to hook up with a small form factor case and mod power supply. Bluetooth was an added bonus for wireless.

Cons: Bluetooth - can we not figure this out yet? I do one windows update and guess what? Code 43: windows has shut down bluetooth. It worked great out of the box with W8.1, but be weary. As soon as you perform any type of update within windows, you lose your bluetooth ability. After spending hours on the web trying to find a fix or workaround, the bluetooth still won't work! I have put a tech support ticket in with gigabyte. So far we are sitting at 3 days without any hint of a response. We shall see what happens.

Other Thoughts: Would be a better product and get 5 starts if everything the software portion of the board kept up with the rest of the world. Everything I included in my build went together nicely. I would recommend to a friend if there was no need to use bluetooth devices with this product.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Quality & Solid Design

Pros: Integrated 802.11ac. The atenna is magnetic. The board seems fairly well laid out, but honestly, many are standard these days.

Cons: I can't find much wrong here. My only gripe is that the drivers for the Intel 802.11ac chip needed to be updated for optimal performance.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to do a few things when building a new system with this board.

1) Update the wireless drivers. Go to intel's website and download them directly.
2) Turn off some sleep/power-down features that are on by default through Win7. This includes the USB port power down and the wifi power down. Both will not wake up quickly and I don't think this has anything to do with the board. It sure did give me some grief until I figured it out.

3 out of 5 eggsTerrible Legacy Support

Pros: Everything seems pretty solid. Supposedly durable. Installed fine. The bios has tons of options. Compatibility with hackintosh builds. Awesome wifi built in (though I haven't used it).

Cons: Terrible legacy usb device support. It doesn't matter if I use the supposed usb 2.0 ports, my tv tuner crashes the computer, and I think my mouse does too. I was getting BSOD's, restarts, event viewer errors, etc. I might still get these, we'll see. I've bought a new mouse and everything seems good so far. If my Brother laser printer crashes the computer I'm RMA'ing this board.

Other Thoughts: If you have lots of needed legacy devices I'd wait a while or perhaps try a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat board

Pros: Great WiFi, small, simple

Cons: Only 1 extra fan slot.

Other Thoughts: My first mobo i used. It is very sturdy, instructions were clear to build with. The WiFi is fantastic, it is great that the antenna is attached with cable because it allows for better positioning.
