Pros: -Great for gaming
-Not many games use hyperthreading, don't pay for something you won't use
Other Thoughts: If you plan on gaming, get this. There's no need for an i7 (for gaming and regular use). If you run multiple calculations or do A LOT of video editing, then yes, go i7 but if you are a regular power user/gamer, invest the difference in a good cooler or a better GPU and save your money from buying an i7, don't pay for features you won't use!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Looks nice
Cons: 1- Gigabyte has really slow customer service and not responsive to tickets.
2- My board keeps giving me Error 55 (memory configuration) on Channel A (DDR4_2 and DDR4_4)
The manual states:
The four memory sockets are divided into two channels and each channel has two memory sockets as following:
**Channel A: DDR4_2, DDR4_4
**Channel B: DDR4_1, DDR4_3
However, my pair of RAM sticks work on DDR4_1 and DDR4_3 [channel B]. They do not work in Channel A (DDR4_2 and DDR4_4). There are no bent pins and no thermal paste causing any interference.
Seems like a faulty board but Gigabyte is really slow responding on a solution or if this is the way it was designed to work.

Other Thoughts: Motherboards are one of the most important components in your system. If you need support, I'd recommend purchasing from a different vendor. You never know when you'll get a faulty board, just random chance, but when it happens to you and you need it fixed, you'd like a company that responds and supports you and their product. At this point I can't recommend Gigabyte, I would suggest going somewhere else.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
Pros: It is able to read the drives at the BIOS level.
Cons: Does not work.
Causes DPC_watchdog_violation at all levels of raid (0,1,5,10)
Other Thoughts: The card creates the RAID and it presents the VDs to Windows, you can format them and partition them correctly but then after 5-10 minutes, you WILL get a DPC_Watchdog_violation error.
I have tried everything and called the support help desk and they couldn't solve it either.
Please, don't buy this.
