5 out of 5 eggsBoard is a Beast!

Pros: Beautiful looking board, black with gold accents. Matched perfect with my EVGA GTX 770's and my EVGA P2 1000 WATT PSU. gigabyte has really stepped up their quality. If you want a top notch Z97 motherboard look no further. Came with bios F2 so I updated it to F6 so it would correctly recognize my 4790K. gigabyte thank you for a great motherboard. Started up on the first press of the button.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat looking board

Pros: Fantastic looking board . power switch on the board is great to have . Bios is good but the new interface it not as clear and kinda cluttered - nothing that hitting F2 a few times will not cure - reverts to old style bios screen .
Booted up first press of the power button , I am very happy with the board.

Cons: My board had my 4790k at 1.47 volts by default after I booted the first time . I brought it down to 1.2volts. Should not overvolt at default settings.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte really knows what to do

Pros: Has the M.2 skys the limit for case constraints. though I havent used it. It has the z97 chipset! and a few different ways to install harddrives aside of the M.2. It's compatibility is increased with memory and processors as I don't favor updating bios it has all the features to update easy and alot more. full control ability of all the different features in bios. Is memory compatible with ADATA (Just as I thought). good managability of the pci express lanes for those that want to strip it down to the bare bones in the bios and just run off of that instead of available ports,headers,sata, and just all around shut the lower chipset down and go. A good reliable board to go into next year with. runs good and cool in my situation.

Cons: Not very many cons on this one. One would be the standard problem it seems with the blue 3.0 header on the mainboard. One either uses that or the usb at the bottom closest to the front of the mainboard, not both at the same time. Starting and stopping issues will occur and have one wondering what the problem is(so closest to the front of mainboard usb is not usable when 3.0 header is being used. Also the chipsets for the different sata ports need to be set correctly in the bois for a cd drive or what have you. If not starting and stopping issues will occur. And have one wondering what the problem is. Most of all the 1150 processors use a exact amount of electricity and produce and monitor a exact amount of heat...So it is very important that one fastens down the aircooler good and tight. These boards are built for that from Gigabyte. If not...it will be starting and stopping. My situation I had a fan on the air cooler with a worn bearing not really a bad one. Between not fastening down tight enough and the vibration from the back fan..It caused a starting and stopping issue. Also remember this is a intel board so it will work with Radeon graphics, but will not favor other hardware that might be on the mainboard in a dispute with other software. EXAMPLE: I have a 10monitor with it's own graphics on board though usb and it would not work on this mainboard with a radeon r270x. Switched it for a nvidia gtx770 and it works fine now. I like the Radeon for the colors and brightness,but could not use it. I don't know what one makes of that....

Other Thoughts: I like it.... feels solid in the install. Runs solid when operating. 1150 processors are fast and affordable, but not x79. They have full control ability of all the features through the bios unlike older mainboards. Features that will take me a month or two to become fluent with,BUT unlike the x79 do not really favor having all the usb,com,etc..ports all being used at the same time. IS that good or bad I don't know. for my situation I can make it work and with full control ability of all those features I have made mine quite the trick-star.

5 out of 5 eggsHackintosh Compatible! :D

Pros: I am thrilled with this board! This board replaces an older Asus board that I had absolutely nothing but problems with. This board is solid, and let's face it, gorgeous. solid design, solid components, everything about this board screams quality. After fighting with the Hackintosh settings, I've managed to get this fully working (including working sleep) under a full Vanilla setup. Very impressed! I've always had to sacrifice *something* in my countless years of messing with these types of builds. It certainly took me a while to discover what settings needed what, but after that, it works flawlessly.

Cons: Bios feels a bit cluttered. I don't much care for their initial interface. However, as another reviewer before me stated, hit F2 and you're back to a more useable interface.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Board

Pros: Bought this board due to a bad ASUS z87 board and support experience.
This board is built rock solid, unlike the ASUS z97 that went in the trash. Dual Bios, SATA Express and M.2 support with the latest Z97 chipset.... WOW
Add to all this the extra 2 years warranty and the price is one of the best for the value.
Cool Max liquid cooler works great except seems too sensitive (changes speed a lot), but still very quiet.

Cons: - Documentation is really weak and does not cover details well. This is both online and in the hard copy. The drivers online do not offer any clue as to what they do or if they are really needed. Not even mentioned in the hard copy. Would it cost that much more to use color in both hard and soft copies? The black and white images don't reveal much detail and even in the blow-ups it’s hard to see what is being discussed. This is inexcusable.
- BIOS Version F5 dropped the supported onboard Video Memory max from 1gb to 500mb which change video response and multi monitor refresh.
- Board BIOS has three Interfaces, Standard (F2), Tweaked, or Advance Tweaked. The Tweaked Interfaces were found inferior to other manufacturers with limited function and/or layout of access to information.
- Logitech Unified USB receiver for both Mouse and Keyboard get locked out during fresh build... so have PS2 versions available.

Other Thoughts: Several issues popped up (loss of an egg):
1. Came with BIOS F2 which did not support USB 3.0 ports for flashing BIOS. Must use USB 2.0 port … not stated in instructions.
2. Past RAID 1 controllers allowed the data (OS) on a drive to be mirrored to a new one during the mirroring process (NOT Supported at Hardware layer-will lose everything). This must be done in OS layer if allowed.
3. Cannot Boot from GSata ports using the Marvell Controller. Supports Raid, but only for data drives.
4. Lacks detailed Fan control other Manufactures are including as standard.
5. Placement of FAN connectors are along the right edge, so be aware of Fan power connector length.
6. Using onboard DVI and HDMI video... will automatically set HDMI as #1 and others at #2+. Only connect the primary monitor when building to set #1 and then you can add the others.
7 Looking at Gigabyte Graphics card to add in and found they don't have drivers for the Z97 chipset yet. So make sure your card has Z97 supported drivers.

Will update after I've had it running a while....

5 out of 5 eggsVary Nice...

Pros: Absolutely stunning MOBO. From any angle this board is great to look at. All the extra bells and whistles, duel BIOS, and great Gigabyte support. Not to much of a fan of the newer looking BIOS but you can hit F2 and see a normal looking GUI.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Im using this MOBO as a WS2012R2E due to the lack of worthwhile server boards. I do wish the manufactures would take advantage of the public doing this and supply server drivers. The Windows supplied drivers worked fine to fill the gaps. Works great with a Intel Xeon E3-1225 and for a Small Biz File server the clients cant keep up!! Will Update review in a few months of 24/7 operation.

5 out of 5 eggsBlack, Black and more Black

Pros: It's a nice looking motherboard, if black is your thing. Worked great out of the box as it should. Started playing around with overclocking and so far, so good. Cooler Master 212 EVO cooler fit on the motherboard vertically just fine with Corsair Vengeance memory seated next to it. I'm using all eight SATA ports, both PCI slots, and the PCIe X16 slot for graphics and it's been rock solid all day.

Cons: Price could be a little lower, but this is a premium binned product, so you get what you pay for.
