1 out of 5 eggs Really bad motherboard 02/25/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: You will learn a lot about how motherboards work because you will spend so much time figuring out this stupid motherboard.

Cons: Running more than 2 gpus on this board will give you a lot of headaches.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard claims a 4 way crossfire when in fact it does not work. Having the 4 gpus on the motherboard makes it too hot for the whole system anyways. So i purchased aftermarket Arctic coolers to cool the gpus. However, these are too big too fit all four onto the motherboard. Purchased 3 different sets of pcie risers to solve this problem. Now 2 out of the four gpus will not even recognize. How are you suppose to put 4gpus on a motherboard without overheating?

I have spent many sleepless days trying to figure out this board. I am currently running 7 computers will all different motherboards, Asus, asrock, msi. This is my first gigabyte board and it has given me the most trouble. Dont purchase this board if you are planning to put more than 2 gpus on it.
