Overall a good motherboard with some minor flaws

Pros: Fast, rgb, plenty of places to connect, good compatibility.

Cons: RGB fusion, bios, some choices they made on rgb locations.

Other Thoughts: Only reason I detracted a star was for RGB fusion, it is rubbish. Other then that, My 2700x went in no problem, installed a monoblock water block no issues. System posted first try. Board came with all the accessories we needed. System runs well, only issue is I am still fighting with rgb fusion.

No onboard video

Pros: Probably lots - purchased because it has blue-tooth

Cons: No on board video

Other Thoughts: My bad - spending $240 on an MB and was so focused on getting one that had blue-tooth that I totally missed that it has NO ON-BOARD video - who'd a thunk it!? Once Newegg creates a shipping label, you can't cancel the order. I'll either refuse delivery of the entire order or just return the MB if I've cooled down by then. No on board video, really!?

Great Board (Read Cons)

Pros: I love the board it self. I love the setup and all the features. I had no install issues with the board everything went smoothly. I love the boards RGB <<ALONE>>. Works amazing with the Ryzen 7 2700x.

Cons: RGB Fusion 2.0 is total garbage.
This software is not very friendly with other components with RGB.

I have a set of GEIL RGB memory sticks (got on sale.) Granted they are labeled for AURA Sync but they will work with with RGB Fusion 2.0 but not like they will with AURA Sync.

I also bought G Skills KM780R Keyboard (Loving it BTW). The G Skills software for the keyboard has a wave pattern that I like. RGB Fusion picks up the RGB on my keyboard and changes it to the Color Cycle I have on this motherboard and memory. So I have to manually open G Skills back up to re apply the pattern I like for the RGB.

Other Thoughts: If you want the MB for its nice RGB its awesome but be warned I am having no luck with RGB Fusion 2.0 and other RGB components.

Good board some older cases may have installation problems

Pros: Gigabyte name, full featured bios, lots of fan headers, First pcie slot next to the power supply is actually usable and not blocked by heat sinks etc., Several headers for light strips etc., Bios clear button on backplane. Two M2 slots for sata and nvme drives.

Cons: If you have an older case you may have a lot of issues getting the screw holes in the board to line up, Solid backplane is causing issues in many cases bad idea gigabyte. (Lots of complaining about this online). Only six sata plugs.

Other Thoughts: This board is one of gigabyte's typically great products except for one design flaw. The solid backplane on this board is causing a lot of issues in older not so high end cases. Many, many, many complaints online with getting the screw holes on the board to line up in the case. This is an ATX board it should fit in an ATX case no issues but it doesn't. Consensus of opinion is the backplane is not exactly in tolerance, many suggestions about how to fix it. I finally managed to install the the top three screws closest to the back and one of the screws towards the center of the board to line up but it was difficult (this should be enough I hope). I have a Rosewill THOR v2 case it's not very old, disappointing that I had all this issue. Using a corsair h100i v2 liquid cooler (had to order a new mount for the ryzen was like 14 bucks as the ryzens were not out when I bought my h100i). Before you install the pump head be sure there is enough clearance for the usb power cable to plug into the side of the pump head I had to take it off a few times till I got it rotated properly. There are only 6 sata plugs on the board which may not be enough for some of us. These days most folks are going with M2 since they are so much faster this board supports nvme and sata m2 drives. The only thing I do not like about the M2 slots is that they are right next to the video card slot, if you're running crossfire with two cards there will be a lot of heat right there but the cover for the slots appears to have some sort of heat sink material on the underside which hopefully will help with the heat issue (M2 slows down if they get too hot). AMAZINGLY gigabyte included the tiny screws for the M2 slot, that was a big hurray for me anyhow as my last Dell machine came with no screws and I had to search my spare screw box to find one that would work. The box for the motherboard had a lot of little bits and pieces and the book really doesn't identify them or tell you where they plug in.

This board has built in wifi and includes an external antenna, I don't use it right now but might in the future nice to have it for sure. I love the board but the install was PITA and then windows refused to reactivate due to the hardware changes so I ended up having to reinstall it. The board is physically heavy not sure I'd trust this to any flimsy case. Slot spacing is very good and it has more slots than most of the competition. SLI and crossfire are supported on this board but when the pcie x16 slot closest to the power supply is populated and the second x8 slot is populated both run at only x8 which is pretty typical I don't know of any ryzen boards that have two pcie x16 slots that run full speed even with both in use. The onboard sound is acceptable just be aware it won't work until you load the drivers off the gigabyte site or the included cdrom.

Love the board you just might want to also spring for a new high quality case to avoid the mounting issue that many folks are having.

Solid Motherboard

Pros: Solid connections on WiFi and Bluetooth.
RGB is great, have colors set in White, its held color perfectly

Cons: Bios interface is a bit wonky to work with.

Other Thoughts: I've run this board for over a year now, its been solid. Just wish the UI for the Bios was easier to work with.

Excellent board with lots of features, great placement, and lots of lights (if you're into that)

Pros: -Placement of headers and other items on the board are generally good. The fastest M.2 is pretty much under my graphics card, but otherwise, I found the layout made the build much easier.
-Very heavy board with noticeably high-quality components
-Lots of USB ports, and 2 of each header connectors (2.0, 3.1)
-Lots of fan headers, including extras for my 2 AIO coolers
-Dual BIOS with a physical switch on board
-Wifi is strong, even though I use LAN primarily
-LED code indicator for errors
-Very good for overclocking
-Pre-installed I/O shield that doesn't feel cheap

Cons: -Difficult to find what I needed to download from support site (no optical drive, so no use for included CDs)
-Eagle looks like it is flexing a human arm
-I can now see all the dust on the inside of my case
-RGB software triggers anti-cheat detection in some games

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd build with a Gigabyte board. Others have been mid-range (ATX AM3+, MiniATX Intel), but still great quality and lasted forever. This is more of a full feature board that should be relevant through the end of AMD's support of the current chipset. I decided to splurge on a top quality board with a mid-tier processor (2600x) with the intent of upgrading the CPU one last time in 2020, maybe to the 4700x. There may be flagship boards in 2020 that have more than 2 USB C ports and more colors, but this will do.

My prior rig included a GA-990FXA-UD3 and an FX-8350 that lasted me from 2013 until a few weeks ago. I would have continued to use this until the release of the 3000 series except the CPU died suddenly. I had very good luck being able to perform incremental upgrades, including a new PSU (1000 w) and GPU (1070 ti) that are more than adequate for the new mobo/processor.

The whole RGB everywhere thing is new for me. I'm generally turning it off or to the dimmest white setting possible. It was very difficult to find top-of-the-line components that don't include RGB. LEDs are so inexpensive now that I can't imagine it increases the overall price of the board that much.

Tip: Look at Gigabyte's list of supported RAM for this board. I went with one listed and had no issue with higher speed ram.

Another amazing gigabyte board.

Pros: my 3rd gigabyte mobo build.
extremely impressed with the performance.
very very easy to clock. I'm such a computer newb and it went flawlessly
love everything about the hardware.
i thought i wasn't going to like the orange accents. but they actually look great.

Cons: Fusion software is mediocre at best and doesnt let me do color wave on my corsair vengeance. this does not affect the rating of the mobo though because as much as i do like rgb. i bought the motherboard for the hardware.

Best motherboard I have ever known

Pros: Large amount RGB Headers
Decked out with onboard RGB lights
Reinforced PCIE Express Slots
The Best WIFI experience I have ever had.
X470 chipset makes my Ryzen 2700X use all of its options.
2 NVME drives.
The Best VRM Heatshinks
Nice layout of headers

Cons: My only con i guess would be that I got confused on the 5v and 12v pin selection layout and fried 4 of my RGB FANS, so now I out 4 fans. But I guess that was my mistake.

OK this is not really a con, but from some of the bad reviews here is your fix.
If you buy an ASUS graphics card with AURA you can get their software to work .
You cannot install RGB Fusion2 software first when you install all you software. You must first install AURA software then RGB Fusion2.
