Nothing but problems 07/25/2013
Good price, connectivity, and features
Unreliable, unstable, immature bios. I've had nothing but problems. RMA'd my first one after a dual bios issue had it stuck in a boot fail loop. Now my new board has boot issues with it not turning on or coming back from sleep sometimes. Compatibility issues with my Samsung 840 Pro running at half speed on multiple Sata 3 ports. Also random hang ups that return to normal after like 30 secs. It needs major updates to the bios and bios updates have been slow. The F6 bios recently went final and it doesn't fix any of my issues. Maybe even worst so I switch back to F5.
I should have paid the extra $30 for the Asus board. Not that Asus has been perfect, but definitely a lot better.
Thank you for your comments. Honest and constructive opinions are always welcome. We apologize for your difficulty with your GIGABYTE product.
Your wake from sleep issue is documented as an issue caused by a power supply not withing specification. The new BIOS F6 may fix this issue, however, we recommend using a Haswell verified/compatible power supply unit as a sure fix.
