Pros: So I bought this board a couple weeks ago and I finally got it all squared away. I was going to go with the top of line CPU at the time (i7-3960X) but then I decided to wait for the newest Core Processor (i7-3970X). My friend had the first gen 1366 Socket processor and it’s lasted him quite a while so I’m sure this computer will last me just as long. I chose to go with the gigabyte motherboard because it was actually a very good deal. The price is lower than most but the quality is on par if not better.
Not only is the price within my budget but the features and accessories was just icing on the cake. It has unique heat spreaders that really catches your attention especially for cases with a clear side panel, mine. It also has the Instant OC and backup bios switch made on the I/O in the back making it easy for me since I like to tinker with my toys. This way I don’t have to constantly go into the system crack the case and flip or clear a switch.
I’ve recently been running Black Ops 2 and man, what a big difference from my Core Duo. I’m glad I went all out on this one now I just gotta save up for 2 more cards to 3 Way SLI.
Cons: The board is huge but I’m glad it is because it means I paid for more since it is feature packed!
Other Thoughts: Hope this computer lasts me at least 7 ~ 8 years since nowadays computers are so durable.READ FULL REVIEW
