Pros: Good looking, simple, overclocks well. Bios flashes easily. 2 way SLI support, good fan control software and a cool red led strip by the edge of your motherboard.
Cons: So far...None at all. I haven't needed to call Gigabyte for support on this board but I can guarantee you will not get service like EVGA provides. Still a great board because u wont need to call for support.
Other Thoughts: better then the gaming series of boards. I bought the gigabyte gaming 3 and it had all sorts of problems that made a great build completely unusable. Ive only purchased 3 gigabyte boards ever, 2 are great, the gaming 3 was terribleREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: where to start? awesome back lit LEDs, quad SLI (if u want it) built in water cooling on the north bridge which works very well. Overclocks well. Got my 4790k to 5.2Ghz no problem. The color scheme is awesome for NVidia 7 and 9 series gpus.
REBATE! - They honor it, (if your patient) and you will get your 100$ in the form of an American Express Gift card.
SUPPORT! - Great! I actually filled out rebate form online incorrectly and was able to call and get it fixed.
Cons: Okay....with a board like this you cant but expect a few cons.
Bios-little hard to get used to, but overall okay.
Ram slots are a little close to0 the cpu socket. You may have some trouble with a large cooler. (But a seriously large one)
Liquid cooling for the north bridge dosnt feel very secure, I used some zip ties to tighten them down but the tubes could be pulled off pretty easily.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind what your getting for your money, this is a fabulous board with lots to offer. Wifi adapater, 4 way SLI a 5.25" bay with USB 3.0 your case dosnt have it. its great! I honestly choses this board over any other when going for an 1150 cpuREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: lots of features, awesome lights and possible QUAD SLI. Beautiful graphical bios.
Cons: Well its fragile. When I first got it, I had to do a lot of work just to get my mouse and keyboard to berecognized by the usb ports so I could get into the bios. Now, for some really bad news, I got a new case capable of holding 4 videocards, and during the transfer of the motherboard something must have gone wrong. Its now dead and im RMAing the board to EVGA. There support is great and I paid for overnight cross shipping service so I should have a new motherboard within a few days.
Other Thoughts: Im a huge EVGA fan, never had a product fail on me like this from EVGA ever. I Still have my 750i motherboard I bought back in 2008 and it still is running strong. It may have been just a bad board from the start, but ill update my review when my RMA is done.READ FULL REVIEW
