Reboot and shutdown issues

Pros: Easy to configure
Lots of options

Cons: Continuously reboots
Cannot complete shutdown, must be physically turned off

Overall Review: Purchased this 12/27/2012 and installed it within a week of it arriving. Memory is on the approved list. System will reboot when attempting to shut down or it will not shutdown and I have to power it off with the power switch. Sent back to Gigabyte and they returned the board after repairs and it does the same thing. Really disappointing as I had great hopes for this mainboard. Was told there is nothing else they can do. I'm not really happy to have to pay for shipping if I want to return it again and even more frustrated that I am possibly corrupting my operating system just to turn the computer off. If I were able, I send it back for a full refund. I can't use this computer very often due to these reasons so it just sits there reminding me of my frustration and discontent.

Garbage board

Pros: Fast, lots of options, thunderbolt ports.

Cons: Had this board for 1 year and 2 months, then would simply not turn on. Contacted Gigabyte, got an RMA and sent. Whole processes took just over 4 weeks. Called 1 time per week to check up on board status, was told it was able to POST and all was looking fine but would take 5 days of stress testing before getting back. Got it back and it was DOA. Called back, employee told me he would send me a new board and would expedite new board if I filled out sheet with credit card info (would only be charged if old board was not received), new RMA was given for old board - dropped at post office within the hour. 1 week later I called for checkup,employee sounds like he hates his job, rude and unprofessional; was told I wouldn't be receiving new board until old was checked, and would only be refurbished - not new. Asked for a manager. Manager made no apologies for employees' rudeness and stated his employees would not say "new", only refurb. I had written what employee had said...

Overall Review: It's been 23 days, latest board now intermittently shuts down and came dirty upon arrival. Called Gigabyte, they explained to email them with pc build info and would take it from there.

Multiple bad reviews, horrible customer service, bad replacement products. Would rate as "0" if possible.

appears to be a pro card, is not

Pros: lots of connectors, but physical architecture prevents usage of all of them.

Cons: despite being advertised, it is impossible to mount a 3rd graphics card that takes 2 slot because the board connectors are immediately below the 3rd PCi Express slot.
On removing the 2nd gfx card from its slot, the cheap plastic on the rear of the slot broke, including a very flimsy metal connector on the very back of the slot. Card in that slot no longer works.

Works Great

Pros: BIOS Features are great.

Having 2 sets of SATA ports on different controalers is amazing. You can simply have one set to ACHI for your SSD Boot and then another Controaler for RAID set up.

Cons: None yet.

1 for 2

Pros: I bought two of these to build two new systems both worked right off the bat with no problems. I've used Gigabyte in the past and like how durable their boards are. Unfortunately after about a month or so one of the boards started to have issues.

Cons: The second board started to arbitrarily not post on a restart or cold boot. It was one of the most frustrating issues because I couldn't put my finger on what was failing. It would start up and end up giving me an error code AE "boot to legacy operating system" and won't post. I'm about to purchase a replacement just to see if it is specifically the board that's giving me issues.

Hackintosh Monster

Pros: USB 3.0
eSata
Thunderbolt
Hackintosh install was relatively smooth

Cons: Wifi/Bluetooth has to be activated in Windows before working in OSX, but if you are not using for OSX then you don't have to worry about that.

Overall Review: I just love having a Mac Pro with thunderbolt before you could buy one.

Just a heads up if you are thinking of using this as a hackintosh. I had to make the board boot legacy only in the bios to get things to work perfectly smooth. Just incase anyone else is banging their head off the wall trying to get it to work
