Love the board, but the audio is full of static and pops

Pros: - Everything except for audio

Cons: - Audio static and pops

Overall Review: I have a dual display port, USB, and audio KVM switch that I use to switch between a Mac Pro and a computer (my gaming rig) with this board. When on the Mac Pro my speakers sound great. When on the gaming rig they are full of static and pops and other just weird background noise that seems to somehow coincide with what's on the screen. It's some sort of weird audio noise feedback. I've tried swapping ports on the KVM to test if it's that, but it's just a simple pass-through so the Mac sounds great on both ports. All I can chalk it up to is this mobo's audio.

Find a better one

Pros: It mostly works

Cons: Wifi keeps breaking. Did all those things you can find on forums, but wifi keeps dropping. It's fine with an external wifi usb key.

ALSO it does not support 7700K out of the box.. you will need to pay some guy in an electronics store 20 dollars to update that for you. So maybe just buy a better motherboard. Unless you are buying this with a 6600K which is totally cool and the right way to go.

Overall Review: I have an EVO 212 cooler and plugging in the front USB extension from my case into this motherboard has been a nightmare. Cut my thumb painting the heatsink red. Looks very metal though just like this motherboard.

Decent board, but bios is horrible

Pros: it seems to be stable and includes some decent features like better sound and wireless/nic vs cheaper offerings. Build quality seems good. Fairly fast to boot once you find the settings in bios to quicken things up

Cons: I'm not sure if Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles designed the bios, but the layout and function suck. The mouse control in bios is almost unusable. Comparing to say Asrock or Asus you will feel like you went 10 years back in time. Finding setting is a exercise in frustration. Where some options I would figure would be grouped in logical areas, NO you have to dig into another section to find it. Once you find your way about, there are a TON of settings, but it's just maddening to navigate this bios.

Overall Review: I had the Asrock Fatality Z710 ITX prior to this board. I prefer'd the Asrock but thought it was dead due to 2 bad CPU's I got. Well once I got a proper CPU, I had already RMA'd the Asrock :(. For the time I used the Asrock, before the first cpu died, it was superior IMO. That said, this was a tiny bit cheaper, and once setup I don't think I'll notice the difference as I have stated above my complaints with this board are centered around the bios. Also, update to latest bios as the stock shipping bios wouldn't let me run my ram at full speed(G.Skill PC3000), but that is not uncommon as my Asrock was like that as well.

Add on note: My 6600K is having issues maintaining a 4.5ghz oc in this board and a Corsair H75 AIO cooler. CPU is stable at 4.7ghz on a full size board. I believe it is the mosfet cooling in this board being inadequate for higher oc'/power use. I may try to mount a 40mm fan over that area. What you will see is the cpu mhz drooping when the system is fully max loaded like during Prime95 or OCCT. I see my frequency go from 4.5ghz down to 3.5ghz and sometimes as low as 800mhz. Must be some fail safe bios function to save the board from overloaded mosfets??? Gets my goat this cpu could go higher but the board is limiting the cpu. Further, I updated the bios hoping this might help. Now my GsKill PC3000 that previosly I had oc'd to PC3200 speeds and 1T cmd rate, is now stuck at PC3000 and 2T command. FAIL on the new bios Gigabyte.

Edit: attempts to contact Gigabyte to address the issue has resulted in NO feedback/replies. NOT HAPPY> Will not advice purchase of Gigabyte products to other users if this is customer service one can expect. I've been very very happy with Asrock support, even Asus which is notorious for spotty support has been good for me. Wish I could like this board again b/c it's for the most part stable, but these issues continue to plague this board. Will be selling and upgrading to another brand.

Great gaming board but not 5 eggs.

Pros: -The overall design is excellent. 5 of 5
-USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 headers.
-USB 3.1 type A and C
-On board audio is high quality.
-Feature rich UEFI
-Everything is relatively strait forward and easy to use.
-Very stable.
-M.2 PCIE x4 slot with backwards compatibility is nice.

Cons: -Fan control is buggy and lacking features. The CPU Fan is locked to CPU temp and AUX is locked to AUX temp. Only two fan headers. It seems to me good thermal control on a small form factor board would be a priority.

-I had temperature probes showing 256°C or a huge negative number for a split second from time to time. Which is basically impossible. A bios update fixed that though.

-Motherboard software is dependent on Gigabyte's "APP Center" to install and run. (You may be able to work around that. I haven't tried.)

Overall Review: The only reason I only gave it 4 eggs is for the buggy fan control and only two headers on a board meant for cases with very little extra room where adding a fan controller may not be ideal or possible at all.

Overall this is a excellent board but not perfect. What ever is though?

I think the only question i need to answer is: If I were buying a new z170 mini-ITX board would I still buy this one? Yes, without a doubt.

good, but definitely not great.

Pros: it works and it's small

Cons: bluetooth never worked. keeps crashing system. running under windows 7 ultimate. windows says drivers for bluetooth were not digitally signed. Any time you would get it installed it would cause BSOD.

Technically functional, but there's no support for it

Pros: Fits small case properly, as designed

Cons: Onboard ethernet and supporting drivers do not necessarily work well with windows 10 and you can no longer update them unless you hunt them down.

Great Mobo with a side of jenkyness

Pros: -Mobo wasn't DOA and everything worked perfectly first try!
-The bios is super friendly and easy to use.
-Setup was a breeze
-Boots very fast

Cons: When setting the OS to Windows 8/10 and turning CSM off (to force UEFI mode for all storage options), I ran into issues where the Mobo stopped detecting a samsung 950 NVME drive I was using for boot in the bios. I went ahead and tried installing windows and was able to install windows to the drive just fine. This could just be me not understanding how UEFI works though and everything worked well enough that I'm not taking a point off of it.

Overall Review: I had one issue where after updating the BIOS, the computer couldn't find the boot device, but it resolved itself after a quick bios boot order change.

Nice Product . Horrible customer service by Gigabyte

Pros: Nice features.

Cons: I tried 3 different graphics card. 2 MSI graphic cards Geforce 1060 , Geforce 1070 and Gigabyte 1060. None would work. I contacted Gigabyte 5 times. 2 emails and left 3 messages for call back. No response back. The user manual is quite useless and it really does not explain the settings correctly.
