Pros: My other 8GB stick now has a friend to hang with. Same quality, warranty and ease of install as the first one.
Other obvious pro = Crucial from Micron!!! wooty woot!
Other Thoughts: Perhaps someday when I need them I'll buy 2 more of these. Oh wait - I already have a 5960x and 16GB of DDR3. I might not really need more RAM until I build a new machine 5 years from now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD3 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Latest X99 Chipset, Support for my 5960x, plenty of RAM slots - I'm on an upgrade path for 32GB once the prices come down, full featured board at a value price.
This board is a great board - there are quirks but I'll get into that in the "other thoughts" section. First of all it's Gigabyte, secondly it comes with all of the accessories and documentation you need to install. Thirdly it overclocks my 5960 like a boss. Once you get into the BIOS its easy to move around in, setup and tune your proc
Cons: Now for the cons. People here are having problems with BIOS/UEFI out of the box. This board ships with version F5. Gigabyte has version F6 available on their website. The huge unknown bummer that took me an hour to figure out is this. If you plug any hard drives into the secondary SATA controller you'll NEVER get into the BIOS screen. You can try all you want but until you pull the drive cables off of those ports it won't go into the BIOS/UEFI screens.
Other Thoughts: Gigabyte could offer better BIOS/UEFI support for this board but the great thing is once you get past the first few little bumps its smooth sailing at a great price. This board was MUCH less than the competitors boards. I always buy Gigabyte and one other competitor because they use Intel's reference design for the board core and they are made at OEM by Foxconn. You always know the hardware is going to be good quality.
Gigabyte reps - if you read this, please fix the BIOS bug. Also - for your apps package, please fix the grammar and spelling errors. When I go to overclock my CPU I'm tuning, not "tunning"
