Cons: rma'd twice to gigabyte first time was told everything from we can't find any problems to we replaced the bios chip. Got it back after 4 wks same problem. Was told to rma again. I did. JUST got it back(literally opened box in last five minutes. I did not receive a replacement nor it seems did I get my board back. The board I just received has a standoff and screw in the upper left screw hole (brass) my standoffs are chromed....this is A. not my board. and B. Not a new board. I was told by gigabyte customer service via Newegg that I would receive a replacement. Granted they didn't say it would be new so technically they didn't lie.
Other Thoughts: 4 months and this Mobo has seen exactly ten days of glitch wrought use. A higher end gaming motherboard? Hardly. Any way you look at this I'm out my of the purchase price. When tech support doesn't know how to remove a standoff and screw. You know you're in trouble. Buy ANY other brand but plz don't subject yourself to the experience I've had.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's green.
This is a follow up review.
Cons: Had a periodic memory error that only occurred at startup. RMA'd took 4 wks to get it back. Called after three was told it wasn't a hardware issue they would check software the following day. Called 4 days later was told it would be shipped back day following. 6 days later I got it back. Re-assembled...same problem. Contacted gigabyte via newegg sounded as if they would require me to ship it off again but they said they'd get back to me today. They haven't. Emailed this morning both rma dept and neweggs contact for gigabyte. Nothing. No reply.
Other Thoughts: Why even offer a warranty if you can't remedy customer problems?

Every part functions fine on a m-atx board I had laying around......I now have a paperweight...and 285$ worth of green fans/grills/wiring/fan controllers that won't go with whatever mobo I have to purchase to replace this.
Veteran builder of custom machines used gigabyte for over a decade w/out issue. Make it right Gigabyte.
Pros: nice layout if it functioned as it should
Cons: pops thru speakers loud as can be at startup. Intermitent error code 51 (memory initialization). Memory proven in previous I7 build (intel board). Gigabyte support on site is awful requires access to my info....for a support ticket? Just wow. Clean install win 7. I7 4770k. Crucial Tactical Tracer 16 gigs at 4 per. Samsung pro ssd.
Other Thoughts: As stated periodic problem...which I shouldn't have. Need contact info for Giga support that does NOT require access to my public yet personal info. Give it to Monday and then you get this garbage in the mail. Might want to not when functioning properly I can restart all day long and it's fine. Only occurs when left off overnight all drivers etc current (nothing yellow in control panel) Get on your job gigabyte. Make it right.READ FULL REVIEW
