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.

GIGABYTE
GIGABYTE

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Product

Pros: If working as described, this board would go above and beyond my needs. It is "mostly" functional in its current state.

Cons: From Day 1, I have experienced electrical issues from this board but it took about 5 months to identify the issue. The first symptom was a lack of power delivered through USB ports.

After trying literally dozens of solutions (including an externally powered USB hub) and consulting many computer experts, the motherboard has finally been proven to be defective. It hasn't gotten worse since I've bought it but the issue has been consistent.

I haven't contacted the manufacturer yet because I depend upon this PC and cannot wait for them to receive the board and send a replacement. I am also frustrated that after all of the time, effort and money I have sank into diagnosing the issue that I would surely have to pay shipping charges to replace a board that should have arrived in working order.

Other Thoughts: I had heard excellent things about Gigabyte products before making my purchase. Needless to say I am disappointed.

2 out of 5 eggsGa-Z97x-ud5h-bk

Pros: Really enjoyed the 6 usb3.0 ports and setup for my i5-4690k. Pretty straight forward to assemble.

Cons: however big cons are that the built in sound failed within a couple of hours of setup and only optical audio available. In addition my sata pci-e card is not detected upon every other reboot. If I turn off the system and remove and reinstall the card it then works but I blame this on the board and not the card as it worked fine in my previous system. I would put in for a board replacement but I went my sn info to newegg for my rebate and can't get the warranty submitted. Big raspberry to gigabyte on this one!

5 out of 5 eggsGA-Z97X-UD5H-BK

Pros: Flawless performance. 4790K, 32 GB ram. OC not a problem.

Cons: Agree that fan connectors being all on the bottom of the board could be a problem. This could also be an asset in that the fan wires could be made inconspicuous. Not enough for the subtraction of an egg.

Booting from a M.2 PCIe snatches the desktop to your screen. Quite hip.

Other Thoughts: Smart of Gigabyte to bolster confidence that the board has been thoroughly tested, having gotten some that clearly were not,

5 out of 5 eggsBlack Edition

Pros: Recently purchased this somewhere else (sorry Newegg) for $113. I was looking for decent 1150 board as I was switching from AMD and the price was perfect. want until I got home that I notice everything including on this board. To say I came out way ahead is an understatement.

Cons: Had to drive 1.5 how to get it. Really I have no complaints was easy to install and everything was recognized right away.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat motherboard

Pros: a lot of features, the bios menu is easy to use, overclocking and tweaking is simple, has more options than I've seen on other motherboards I've owned. looks great (lower on my list of importance), came with what appear to be nice sata cables. I like the internal power button, and the dual bios.

Cons: not sure if it's a con for everyone, but the sata connectors were hard to get to in my haf 912, maybe not an issue for other cases, not worth taking an egg off for, I only paid $130 for this motherboard so I got a ton for my money.

5 out of 5 eggssurpassed my expectations

Pros: After 9 months of use, this mobo is still rockin'. Durable, fast, and zero issues. I build PCs for myself, as well as for folk who pay me to build for them. I usually get ASUS, but last few have been flakey. So I tried Gigabyte this time. In a few years when I build myself a new PC, I'll look to Gigabyte first.

Cons: I think I complained about price at the time, but now I deem it well worth the expenditure.
