Pros: Installed 6700K processor, 32 gb of G.Skill memory, M2 SSD, 980TI and a couple of hard drives and optical drives. Powered the system up, installed OS and everything worked without any issue. Ran demanding benchmarks and games. Everything works. No spooky reboots or blue screens. I'm impressed.
Cons: No bugs. Did not use the Easy-Tune software that is provided - really do not need it.
Documentation is not easy to read. Using an M2 drive (depending on which one is used) will turn off a SATA port. The exact port is listed in an obscure chart. I figured this out when one hard drive would not appear in BIOS.
Other Thoughts: I've used the Gigabyte OC boards with the 1166 and 1150 processors. They all worked well after lots of setup time and effort. This board is a large improvement over the previous models. Might take advantage of the installed water-cooling connections on the MB and install a full water-cooling system.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, fast card. Very quiet and cannot be heard above normal case fan noise. Ran benchmark tests and any fan noise form the card was not noticeable.
Cons: No downsides.
Other Thoughts: Recommended to anyone who wants a zero-problem top-self 980 TI.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This motherboard was very easy to install and configure. For an inexpensive MB it was surprisingly fast. Installed an I5 cpu and 16 mb of G-Skill memory (probable overkill), turned it on and it came to life without issue.
Cons: None identified.
Other Thoughts: This is an excellent choice for those who want a capable system at low cost.READ FULL REVIEW
