Pros: PLX chip (4 8x PCIe lanes ), really good on board soundcard and NIC killer and intel
Cons: 1) Sound issues. Sound will randomly become distorted and will force you to restart the computer. 2) Motherboard will randomly not boot. Sometimes when i turn on the computer, everything comes on (PSU. Fans, MB ) however MB just hangs and Screen will not turn on, The MB debug code will Hang at A0 and just sti their. 3) The worst of them all, Gigabyte support, they take forever to respond if they even do. 4) Wireless NIC takes up one of your PCIe slots. 5) sata express is uesless and dead , however this is not really gigabytes fought 6) no M.2
Other Thoughts: The main reason I got this MB was because it had A PLX chip and A good soundcard on board. However in the long run its not worth the things it is missing.
Things I know now.
1) I want M.2 and not with A PCIe addpader.
2) I want wireless built into the IO and not As A PCIe slot (Uck)
3) 2x Types of NiCs are A nice extra , however you will not really use both. And the killer does not work with linux .
Pros: Looks nice and has ALOT of buttons.
Cons: Ungodly big base, oh yea .. and its broken and their support blows.
Also Hat Switches are NOT SWITCHES they are 2x way buttons. When you go to FLIP THEM they just click and reset to middle AKA A button.. they are not Switches at all ...
Other Thoughts: I had this item set too remind me when newegg got them back ins tock. Building my cockpit w/ obutto r3volution.
Got the stick in earlyer then I needed it.. was still working on get the rest of it set up, .. So it has set on the ground next to my obutto r3volution for a few months now. Have everything set up, my 3x screens, 2x 780 ti ect ect and Now elite dangerous. However when I start it up .. the ship keeps rolling right. After recalibrating a few times and reading ... I kind of notice that the Rudder (twist in the stick) has 2 points that it resets too. When you twist the stick it should pop back to 12:00 and recenter. However when you Twist right its like it Hangs coming back and sticks at 12:20 so you have a little lisp in your contorols .. you can then force it back to stick at 12:00 .. but thats a pain . Only happens when you turn right.
I then open A support ticket sat night. Monday they send me A generic message about uninstalling and reinstalling the software and drivers... I am sure that I explained it was hardware issue the first time. However I do all these steps know this is not going too fix jack. After doing so, I reply to the email ... have not heard anything from them in more then 48hours ... I have to call them to issues A ram.
So now I have too pay 30.00 in shipping to get this item fixxed that I have never even used and .. its going too take 2 weeks
Cheaply made Product and poor support. Newegg should stop carring there items.
