very nice 11/18/2013
It's a motherboard with the features I was looking for. 4 ram slots, plentiful overclocking capabilities, PCIe3.0
I used a GTX 670 with this motherboard. I should have taken the double width size into account as it makes the PCI slots useless. The PCIe 2.0 slot is, far enough away to still be useful. I actually had a PCI card I was going to use with this...ah well. It's my fault, not the boards!
It has tools for easy overclocking. I've only had it running for a few days with a 4670k. I'll eventually go water cooled but for now I'm on a stock cooler. I can't even get a 20% overclock on the stock cooler. I don't think it's a motherboard problem. The UEFI bios screens are nice with options to create your own categories. This was my 2nd Gigabyte build after many ASUS builds. It's safe to say I'm a fan of Gigabyte now. Quality stuff.
