Pros: Was looking for an inexpensive board that was socket 1150 & had optical out . This one fit my needs . Optical out is hard to find on smaller boards and being a z97 board was fantastic . Used an i5 4670k I had from a previous build , one stick of Mushkin 8gb low voltage ram and a 60gb Mushkin SSD . Installed Windows 8.1 Pro & got the free upgrade to 10 Pro . Made a great HTPC out of it (also had a spare case & dvd drive). Streams 1080p & even tried 4k thru the onboard gpu . Just need to replace the stock cooler , temps will hit 62 degrees C when streaming video sometimes .
Cons: The Ethernet port is slow to wake up out of sleep , sometimes takes up to 30 seconds (not a problem for me) , and it doesn't support sli (knew this going in though) .
Other Thoughts: I wonder if I added a second video card in would it allow it to work for PhysX ? Would make a nice Steam remote play machine to boot !READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Accepts Haswell & refresh & some Broadwell cpus . Like the gold accents .
Other Thoughts: I just upgraded the cpu on it from an i5 4670K to a i7 4760K . Make sure you have the latest bios (A9 right now) before you upgrade . The A6 bios will not support the refresh (learned the hard way) . Tried the o/c feature in the bios on the i5 , it will overvolt your cpu . Don't use it .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fits current motherboard , big upgrade from 4570k .
Cons: None , except for UPS "forgetting" to deliver it last week .
Other Thoughts: First off , make sure you have the latest bios installed . Don't believe anything otherwise Gigabyte stated F6 bios will work - wrong ! Would not post at all , no video , just beeps & reboots over again . Could not flash via usb either .had to reinstall i5 , flash bios to F9 & reinstall i7 . Booted fine then . Should of had it on Friday , but UPS forgot to load it on truck for final delivery . Not Newegg's fault .READ FULL REVIEW
