5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard!

Pros: I have had this for a good bit now, great quality motherboard, very sturdy and feature packed with a great bios. You get a great lan and audio chipset, and 2.5x-6x hard gain control, a nice o-amp and a awesome looking motherboard. As computer service tech I can say this was a great motherboard to work with. I have my i5 4590 locked at 3.7ghz at all times on all cores default voltage running very very cool on stock cooler. Audio is great! I'm driving $400 passive speakers and a $500 custom built 10in powered sub through a little amp, and sounds AMAZING. Also made my built in monitor speakers sound great (not a placebo affect, im serious, sounded amazing compared to my old via chipset motherboard)!!! Also handling my 8gb ram and gtx 970 without a hitch. Bios setting a great, I was able to configure it to dual boot linux and windows 8.1 without too many problems thanks to the bios options which imo is a miracle in itself.

Cons: Not a z99 chipset mobo, but that would have costed $100 more! I get 3.7ghz anyways as is on my 3590 anyways.

Other Thoughts: i'm a computer service tech, I could go on and on about this motherboard but I decided to cover the most relevant pros about this board. All in all a great buy if you dont need to overclock past 4ghz, which wont make much of a difference anyways unless your going past 4.5ghz which imo isnt a great idea for daily use. you can overclock your cpu on this board up to the turbo clock, it may even support unofficial overclocking on -k cpu's but I didnt want to find out.

2 out of 5 eggssad

Pros: price was good, board looked great when I got it.

Cons: DOA, no lights on the board no power flowing through it once so ever.

Other Thoughts: I originally got this boar to replace a ASUS I had to RMA because it shorted and caught fire, When I got the new ASUS the first to RAM rails were dead so i got this, not noticing that the board didn't fit my CPU I was annoyed but bought a new CPU, CPU came in yesterday 11/19/14 put it all together to find the board dead.......

I am going to rma the board again and keep as a back up this will become my main board so we will see. I have used GIGA in the past and was very satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsnice cheap board, looks cool

Pros: looks cool with the LED's showing the separation between digital/analog sides of the board.
nice set of features for the price, everything where it should be (as compared to other boards)

Cons: EUFI still confuses me. I bought some extreme memory and set the XMP to profile 1, rebooted and checked and it was still on standard timings. A second try resulted in a reboot with the correct timings, and I checked it once again a few weeks later and was still on profile 1 with correct timing.
pin 1 marking could be a little easier to spot for the CPU installation.
Once after installing Windows 8.1 updates the PC rebooted and said there were no drives installed with an OS. Having seen that before on my other PC with Gigabyte Motherboard I shut off the PC, then turned it on and it booted just fine. Not sure what the deal is but sometimes a reboot doesn't use EUFI and trying to reboot or reset ends up the same, only a total power off/on gets things working again.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd Gigabyte board and have been very pleased with the value I get. Learning more about motherboards and chipsets will reveal a lot about capabilities (or how certain chipsets limit features or how many SATA ports, etc).
While sleeping (haswell CPU), the LAN port shows continual usage, not sure what that's about, I guess it's listening for Wake-On-Lan?

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a sweet motherboard

Pros: Received the board yesterday and paired it up with an i5-4590.

The board is great. Well laid out and solid.

Installation was a breeze with absolutely no problems.

I put the PC through it's paces last night and this morning with BurnInTest.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Two thoughts come to mind.

The motherboard came with the F2 Bios. Easy enough to update to F5 using @Bios.

I wish there would have been an USB 3.0 motherboard connector.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gamer MB

Pros: Sound Card is great. Well designed board. Looks awesome. Many bios options. No problems at all

Cons: No Cons, for the price this MB really worth it.

Other Thoughts: Killer network really ping lower, 10 % from a normal card but don’t think you will download faster...
I decide to buy this MB with H97 chipset instead of Z97 for the price. If you plan to overclock, maybe you should consider a Z97 MB. I buy over 10 Gigabyte MB over the past and I never been disappointed even on low cost MB.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Designed for audio enthusiasts. Worked without any problems.

Cons: Well, not really a con since it can be disabled from bios, but the bright red lights on the board to showcase the noise shielded audio circuitry were irritating to me until I found the setting to turn it off.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board for budget gamer

Pros: I had no faith in the addition of a Killer NIC on this board. I am pleasantly surprised. My Wow latency dropped by %40 percent, and in general other FPS games dropped 30-50 percent. The Bios setup on this system has more options than is needed and you can do pretty much anything that the chipset will allow. I setup windows 8.1 using UEFI and its worked flawlessly with a I7 4790S.

Cons: I'm found no CONS to this board beyond those imposed by the chip-set. As long as you don't plan to over clock or use more than 1 video card the board is perfect for the gamer on a budget.

Other Thoughts: I've bought 3 gigabyte board over the last few years and they have proven to be solid and reliable over time unlike the ASUS boards of old.
