Pros: 1. Easy to setup
2. Bios friendly
3. Able to run MACOSX on the board with no issues.
Cons: 1. PCI-E 3.0 slot. When using a PCI-E card that takes up two slots (EVGA Geforce GTX660 Superclocked 2GB, etc) that graphics board runs right up, and on top of the chipset above the SATA ports. And the SATA ports are not blocked (barely) but it makes it hard to reroute the cables around the graphics card to the desired drives.
2. Why does this thing act weird sometimes. When I make changes to items in the BIOS such as changing SATA from IDE to AHCI, etc. the system will restart (normal), shut off completely, then reboot itself within a few seconds. I have never seen this on a motherboard or build and I have been building my own custom systems for 12 years. Perhaps a call to Gigabyte might be in order for this because this is too weird.
Other Thoughts: 1. Next time I will be sure to check on this issue with graphics card size and SATA port locations prior to purchase.
2. Only 1 PCI-E 3.0 slot.
3. Only supports CrossfireX, not SLI.
