GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-H170 - Easy setup.

Pros: -Specs were what I was looking for. I didn't buy a K proc so I didn't need the Z170.
-Still plenty of bells and whistles.
-Loved the front panel adapter.
-Plenty of 4-pin fan connectors.
-Recognized everything right from the start, even my SSD.
-Can't hurt that it looks like a $200 mobo.

Cons: -Sata ports were a little difficult to work with but that is partially my cases fault.
-Even though it's the H170, I would of liked to see some support for different RAM speeds.
-Would of liked another sata cable. 2 Is just not enough these days.

Overall Review: I've been using it for about a month now with no issues and is a huge upgrade from my previous 785G.

-The extra monitoring tools and the APP center in general aren't that bad and they use minimal systems resources.

-Unfortunately you can snag a Z170 for about $20 more if you wait for the right time but it'll be a base.

-Nothing would keep me from recommending this product to someone interested in getting a newer 1151 socket board but wasn't looking to break the bank. Good compromise between affordability and the provided features and reliability.

UPDATE 11/28/2018 - Still running strong.

Lot's of defects

Pros: Works

Cons: -Numerous problems

Overall Review: I have constant freezing problems, audio static/popping (tried EVERYTHING), and I can't plug in headphones without getting terrible EMI interference. It looks like I will have to RMA this which is a real pain since I run a business with my computer and will be without it for some time. I will update this review after the RMA, hopefully Gigabyte will do a good job with customer service.

Motherboard worked well then blue screen

Pros: Initially the motherboard was flawless. Worked well initially and felt we had purchased a quality product.

Cons: About four months ago started seeing blue screens. Have gone through all of the checks we could possibility think of. The PC works great when running a game requiring some horsepower but when its idling or just browsing the internet we would encounter a blue screen. Been through it all, updating drivers, testing hardware, updated drivers, reinstalling Windows 10, nothing resolves the problem. Replaced the power supply thinking this was the issue without success. Couple of times when reinstalling windows, the system will blue screen.

Biggest complaint is that we are getting nowhere with Gigabyte support. Tickets take four days to answer and a phone call basically refers us back to the ticket system which is useless. What good is a warranty when support is non existent. I have another build with Gigabyte (different motherboard) without issues but my tech support experience is making second guess this decision.

The one star is really due to support or the lack of it.

Great Product

Pros: -Works great... was able to connect all other PC components with ease
-As advertised
-Nice colour scheme... Aesthetically nice to look at.

Cons: -Wasn't able to secure one edge of the board to the case... Not sure if it's the motherboard or my case that's at fault. I was still able to mount the motherboard, but one side of it flexes when I insert/remove cables.
-USB 3.0 cable is a bit loose

After reading a ton of DOA and bad reviews..

Pros: I think this is a good example of "More people will write a review after having a bad experience than people will for a good experience"

I hopped back on this item and was looking for maximum RAM speeds supported. Figured I'd scroll through some reviews.

A lot of people that reviewed received DOA boards, stuff that didn't work etc.

I have no had this issue. Board installed just fine (It is a bit more narrow than a standard, no issues installing tho; just make sure you brace the underside when plugging in the 24pin ATX connector

Never installed and of the drivers it came with, never did anything but physically put this in my case and start throwing components at it. Everything posted first try. You don't need software to access the LED Ambient lighting, there are provisions for this in the "BIOS".

Read a lot of people experiencing issues with the onboard Ethernet, I've had zero.. once again without installing included drivers.

This board works for me. Its not super expensive, has plenty of SATA ports, I REALLY like the metal supported PCI slot; my heavy GTX1070 has no sagged the SLIGHTEST bit. (Cant say the same for my girlfriends MSI board)

I wouldn't hesitate on this due to bad reviews. Sure there are quite a few DOA reviews but think about how much a budget "performance" mobo sells. Im sure the ratio to Working vs Not working is astronomical.

Cons: As mentioned I was simply here to read about maximum supported memory speeds. 2133 is the claimed maximum which is fine, but more is more better. (m0ar betta)

Overall Review: System Specs.
