Extended Server Level 168-Hour Durability Test



GIGABYTE Black Edition motherboards undergo an extra 168 hours (7 days) of stress testing before shipment to ensure premium quality for our customers.

During the 168-hour test, each motherboard needs to pass rigorous, full system validation testing for one full week. GIGABYTE has built a custom testing facility at our Taiwan (Nanping) factory.

A Certificate of Validation is included with every board, issued by the GIGABYTE factory and signed by the manufacturing VP & GM to indicate that each board has passed our highest test standards.

GIGABYTE

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.

GIGABYTE
GIGABYTE

All New Heat Sink Design

GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards feature new heat sink designs that offer uncompromisingly efficient cooling on key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset (PCH). GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards offer cooling support of the crucial PWM area so even the most aggressive and extreme configurations will be kept well within optimal thermal parameters.

GIGABYTE

GIGABYTE OPT Fan Support

GIGABYTE

Many of today's third party water cooling systems require CPU fan power support for both the cooling fan and the water pump. GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards feature OPT fan support, an additional CPU fan pin header that can be used to connect a water pump and configured for continuous full speed operation. The OPT Fan is also useful for high performance coolers employing two fans.

5 out of 5 eggsHAckintosh

Pros: used as Win 7 64 game box with i5 4690k, 16GB and Sapphire Tri X R9 290X. Running BF4 3 monitors ultra settings. Perfect.

HAckintosh ::: Tonymac 10.3 easy install - had to use MB video to install and then switch back to R9 290X -- All monitors work . What a dream Hackintosh.

This is such a good board that I bought another for brothers Bday since he wants an OSX86hackkintosh. HE will be using the MB video ( ie HD4000 from the built in CPU graphics)

Cons: Price only dropped 10 bucks since first purchase 6 months ago.

Other Thoughts: Newegger for 14+ years.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty ram slot

Pros: Easy set up

Cons: First two ram slot is faulty. Took me two whole day to figure out what was wrong. Had to use the two last slot. Cost way to much for a faulty board. I wish I could of got a better discount on it if Itwas faulty. I don't mind returning this and getting a new board or give me a discount! First time buyer and I got a defective board!

5 out of 5 eggsDurable Board that Works Great

Pros: Durable (that's especially good for a first-time builder)
Installation of parts was easy
UEIF was easy to configure
Overclockable
Expandable, with multiple PCI slots for multiple GPUs
Nice-looking orange light when turned on

Cons: Nothing yet

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has helped make my first PC building experience easy and enjoyable. The board is thankfully durable and the extra PCI slots and RAM slots give it excellent expandability. I haven't used it for very long, but I'm hoping it'll last several years.

1 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard, bad customer support.

Pros: Good motherboard once I replaced it, not taking any eggs off for the board.

Cons: My PC kept restarting every time I would play intensive games, so I decided to replace the board, because the heat sink felt abnormally hot.

Once I sent the board back to Newegg (IT WAS IN PERFECT EXTERIOR CONDITION) They told me it had visible damage and couldn't be replaced. I knew that the board didn't have any exterior damage when I sent it in because I fully inspected the board. needless to say I took many precautions. So they sent the board back, I took it out of the box, and the motherboard had a massive gash as if someone had beaten the board with a screw driver. (IT COULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IN SHIPPING) And not just that, but the box was missing 2 SATA connectors that I knew I put in the box. So I was out a full 159.99 to order a full motherboard replacement. Ridiculous.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth the price

Pros: For the price, I'd say there are very few comparable Z97 motherboards of this caliber. I've used plenty of Gigabyte motherboards in previous builds and they've all worked great. I purchased it wanting a few extra PCIe slots for my wireless card, sound card, and SSD and it has plenty. I also like the spacing of the PCIx16 slots for when I plan to SLI cards.
Aesthetically the black is really nice and I love the soft orange accent lights on the left side which I didn't even know were a thing until I got it all started up.
I wasn't really on a budget when picking them out but this one is also very nicely priced for the features it has compared to competitor motherboards that offer the same stuff.
As far as Gigabyte goes, I've never had a DOA or return made. These things are seriously built for longevity.

Cons: A small driver issue occurred with my T9E Archer AC Wireless Adapter.
Though this might not be the fault of the motherboard the computer would not start up past the Win7 home screen unless the wireless card was in the very highest PCIe slot. Very strange and it was a minor fix, it was just kind of hard to diagnose is all. All other slots work fine with my other peripherals and it's been about 2 months and it's still going strong!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade from 775

Pros: Socket 1150, PCIe 3.0, Can handle 32GB DDR3, Has m.2, enough SATA3 ports, it is black, no funky colors on ports/slots/adapters, No useless (Killer) NIC, no more PATA on motherboard

Cons: It did not come with a kitchen sink.

Other Thoughts: Awesome upgrade from my venerable GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128050). Will relegate this to a home server/NAS some time later. ]

Current SOHO/Game:
This Mainboard
Intel i5 4690k
Arctic7 cooler
16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
Sapphire 5850 (next upgrade - ths mobo has more breathing room for it, though (PCIe 1.x to 3.x))
NZXT case
Two Intel SSDs
Windows 10 Pro

5 out of 5 eggsGood enthusiast MoBo

Pros: Solid motherboard for an enthusiast. Purchased on sale as I was trying to keep an i5 build under $600 overall. Serious improvement (coupled with the 4th gen i5 I snagged elsewhere) over my last desktop.
BIOS is easy to navigate. Great information books from MFR included in the package. I havent worked on OC'ing the processor or GFX yet simply due to limited personal time, but the UEFI appears as if it will make that process simple.
On-board sound card pushes quite well. Had a set of Bose Companion speakers plugged in for about 2 months, and just received a pair of Sennheiser HD558s which are driven nicely as well.

Cons: Was difficult to put in the top two screws when installing in my Antec 302, but that may be the fault of the case and not this motherboard. Otherwise I've had no issues so far.

Other Thoughts: Solid product, especially as I found it for $109. No issues so far, booted fast. Software bundle was OK.

Still working on figuring out the audio stuff from Realtek as I have my HD558's plugged into the back port (directly to the OB sound) and my Bose desktop speakers plugged into the front port on the case (which connects to the pin outputs on the MoBo). Would be nice to have a fast and easy switching mechanism to go between the two outputs. Not Gigabyte's issue though.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Gaming Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard can take all the stress I can put on it. All the hardware works great and without a single problem. Everything was easy to install on the board and a lot of the positions were labeled so even a newcomer could build a PC with this board.

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: I thought it was kind of pricey to begin with, but I think it is worth every penny now.
