Pros: Great specifications and good price. It works quite well most of the time, I would almost recommend it!
Cons: Lots of instability problems. It appears that I need to manually set memory speed less than 1600MHz or the system hangs at random times. The memory I am using is 1866MHz rated but the system wont be stable at 1600!
I have also noticed weird behaviour (system/wireless is not very responsive) when copying large files from the hard drive to usb memory (I am also using a usb wireless).
Gigabyte support has been TERRIBLE (I contacted them before trying to lower memory frequencies, asking for help, they replied 1-2 days later saying essentially nothing and I am still waiting for them to reply!). I am also EXTREMELY curious why on earth do they throttle their web site? I was downloading the drivers from their web site at the breathtaking speed of 10-30kb/sec.
Other Thoughts: I only chose a gigabyte motherboard because I wanted to build a hackintosh (install osx). OSX works great WHEN the system is stable, but other than that I am totally dissappointed by Gigabyte, for which I had a high opinion, until I bought one of their products. I will stick with Intel and Asus motherboards in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
