This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X99-GAMING G1 WIFI LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 6 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (SATA3 0~5) 4 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (sSATA3 0~3), supporting IDE and AHCI modes only (An operating system installed on the SATA3 0~5 ports cannot be used on th
Pros: No problem with default system settings for pc build. The installation disc provided necessary drivers if needed. I like the placement of memory, PCI express slots, and sata 6 ports. The two NICS are rock solid and wi-fi are all reliable.
Cons: Overclocking in Bios is simply impossible. I disabled all the power saving modes for CPU with no overclock only to see that dreaded bios load default menu screen. I tried APP Center with some success but with power saving mode enable kind of defeats my intended purpose. This board along with many X99 chipset board are still waiting on a bios that allows overclocking flexibility. I have even captured screen APP Center overclock then manually enter same settings to see that dreaded load bios menu screen upon reboot. I purchased 5960X cpu, and DDR4 3000 memory to have a good solid overclock for next few years only now stuck with default speed settings. An expensive endeavor when you can't overclock in need of assistance.

Pros: The read speeds are 1700MB, installed easily on Windows 8.1 with X99 motherboard.
Cons: The write speeds are extremely slow. I'm reviewing of user guide to see what configuration is needed by running wdcfg commands. I would have expected performance right from start since Windows 8.1 and bios recognized hardware without requiring any driver (no disc included by the way, have to get from support site). I'm not sure why any manufacture would have download available but not provide media on day one for OS install. I also have ticket with support if I don't see write speeds improvement using wdcfg utility (command prompt interface)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This RAM has lasted entire time I have owned system 9/9/2009. Runs at 1866 with no issues at all. I never felt the need to increase to 2000. One of best RAM experiences I have and now point people to G.SKILL.
Cons: No way No how.READ FULL REVIEW
