GIGABYTE GA-Z87-D3HP LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel Z87
  • 4th-Gen Intel Core i7 / i5/ i3 (LGA1150)
  • DDR3 2933(OC)/1600

Pros:

Works great.
I specifically got this mobo because it has 2x onboard usb3 headers. most mobos advertised with 2x onboard usb3 ports really only have 1 header; this one has 2. From what I found, this is the cheapest decent mobo that has 2x physical usb 3 headers.

Everything installed fine - 32gb crucial ram, SSD, 2x HDD, geforce 660ti, br burner, aftermarked cooler (coolermaster v8 - the ivybridge cooler slot works fine with haswell).

UEFI takes some getting used to - mouse in the BIOS is strange.
everything booted fine and has been running great.

i'm only using 1x video card, so i cant tell you how it would work in SLI/CF, but it has the slots for it.

Cons:

I had to go by specs and name for this, as there were no reviews for any haswell product when I ordered this. thankfully my faith in gigabyte has not been in vain.

Other Thoughts:

only 2 rear usb2 ports. not a big deal (i prefer usb 3 usually), but if you dont have front panel usb2, you will need to use those to install win 7 from a flash drive. win 7 installer doesnt recognize usb3 ports without loading drivers... found that out the hard way.

also, had to install drivers from the CD for windows 7. i'm not sure if they are just not on windows update yet, but almost nothing was automatically detected.
