Worked well...then died

Pros: It did everything I asked of it while it was alive. (11 months)

Cons: I purchased it in Dec of 2016. It officially died in Nov of 2017. I've built quite a few systems and I'm used to the MB's lasting more than 11 months. Now I'm at the mercy of the Gigabyte return and replace process. I put this system together to do video editing and 3D animation. Couldn't have died at a worse time!!! Contacted Gigabyte yesterday and applied for an RMA. As of this morning, they are still reviewing the request??? I will keep you posted.

Overall Review: I don't know if the design of this MB is flawed or the manufacturing process. In any event, I have now joined the legion of folks who've experienced MB failure. At this point, I wish I had made another choice. Hindsight!

Died after 4 months

Pros: Worked great while it lasted!

Cons: Placed as a new build with all high end components. I use this computer for photo and video editing (no gaming). (Graphics card is an EVGA 980 TI Kingpin and PSU is EVGA 1000G2, processor is an Intel Core I7-6950x 10 core). Screen when white for a few seconds, then died. I replaced the graphics card and PSU, still DOA!
Similar to the other reviews, I now have to replace the MB and incur another expense.

Overall Review: LED lighting looks good, but not necessary. I just want a reliable computer that works. I had an ASUS MB in my last computer and it worked without any problems for several years.

Another excellent GIGABYTE motherboard. Love the LEDs

Pros: Ambient surround LEDs with RGB multi-color choices.
Supports up to 128GB of DDR4 quad channel RAM
Thunderbird/USB 3.1 support
Motherboard pin-header for aftermarket LED strips (if you feel the need for more LEDs)
Two NICs

Cons: No rear panel LEDs (my X99-Gaming 5P has this)

Overall Review: Excellent motherboard. Recognized Intel i7 6850k CPU and Corsair Vengeance Quad channel DDR4-3200 RAM immediately. The ability to choose the LED color is a nice feature. Came with F3 BIOS, which I updated to F6. I would recommend this board to anyone.

Great Mobo

Pros: Does everything it should.
LED lights look pretty.
As long as you have the manual that comes with the board, the BIOS is simple and has a ton of features. (once you figure out the controls)
With boot set to "super fast" mode, I get a fully usable desktop in about 15 seconds.
It is definitely good looking.
Thunderbolt port
Borderline too many SATA ports
Feels very sturdy

Cons: I Purchased it August of last year (2016) and didn't get to assemble the PC until November (painful wait). It worked great up until around mid January when I started getting ubs drops. (typically have 5-6 usb devices plugged in including sensitive audio interfaces) They would happen around an hour after the computer was on. (usually right in the middle of a game or during audio mixing) They would seem to get worse the longer the computer was on, eventually requiring me to hard reset the PC as my keyboard and mouse would stop working. The issue gets really bad when Im in VR as the headset loses connectivity, which puts my trackers back to sleep. So when it comes back I have to wait for my trackers to reboot. Very frustrating. Over the past couple of months I tried everything from multiple USB drivers (including reinstalling the ones included), to swapping power supplies, video cards, fresh install of windows.

Update:
Received new board and everything works great. Back to 5 eggs.

Overall Review: Using it with an i7-5820K, GTX-970, 32gb G.Skill TridentZ DDR4, Samsung Evo 500gb, + 250GB(OS), Seagate 2TB, Win 7 Pro

Solid X99 Motherboard

Pros: -Good looking motherboard
-Lots of USB 3.0 ports
-Supports 40 lanes of PCIe (so long as your CPU does)!

Cons: -Driver CD didn't work and downloading drivers was a bit confusing (some required patches before you could download the driver)

Overall Review: - Not sure if this motherboard supports Thurnderbolt. It has a USB 3.1 port and mentions a "Thunderbolt add-in card connector" on the newegg description. However, none of the items in the box fit this description. There is a Thunderbolt driver for the computer and it does appear that is something Thunderbolt related on the PCIe bus. Not really an issue for me, but no clear documentation either.

Fantastic Board! 8 months and going strong...

Pros: Original review in November of 2016:

I love this board. I recently had the MSI X99A Gaming Pro carbon board and had to return the first one 3days after the install and then RMA the second one after 2 months. It was the first non-Gigabyte board I bought, and at this point it will be my last. I LOVE this Gigabyte board. I have put it in 2 different high end builds now, with no issues from either system.

I am getting boot up times between 28 and 35 seconds with Windows 10 Pro being installed on a M.2 Samsung SSD (950 pro 512GB). The LED lighting is bright and flashy in my Corsair 760t case. I am using the Intel Core i7 6800k CPU with 32gb of quad channel ram. I have a second 250gb Intel SSD installed, as well as 5 other HDDs for storage.

I run a small project studio that handles several media type files. I record bands, edit video, and I am now diving into PC gaming with my new nVidia 1080 card. This board has given me ZERO issues from the install onward. I am seeing a lot of people saying there are issues with certain Broadwell E cpus not working right at first, but I am not sure where that came from. I called Gigabyte to see if these issues where legit, and the customer service rep told me there should not be any issues with the install. So I installed my Core i7 6800k, loaded the latest bios on a USB flash drive, updated to the latest bios version, and we where off to the races. Not one issue.

This board has been on solid for a few weeks now. A lot of up time, and it has handled every task I have thrown at it. And it is a solid/fast board. I have rendered full HD video using CPU hungry applications like Vegas and Handbrake,, recorded live music sessions, played demanding games like GTA V and Fallout 4, and have not had a single issue that was board related. And this board is a blessing after the huge headache I got over the MSI X99A pro carbon board. So, I would highly recommend this board to any gamer, multi media buff, or pc enthusiast!

UPDATED 7-9-2017 - Still running great, no issues what so ever with this board. Been doing a lot of multi-media tasks such as running external USB ASIO audio interfaces to record bands, full 1080p 60fps video editing with high demanding programs like Vegas and Handbreak, and have been doing high end gaming from time to time. Everything has been solid. Great board!

Cons: -Non performance gripe; Software for the LED lights on the board doesn't have many options to it. Still looks great though, and the LEDs are bright.
-There is no digital read out on the board for post issue codes. I had to install a classic motherboard speaker.

Overall Review: I would highly recommended this and any other Gigabyte board. I have been building PCs for over 7 years now, and have NEVER had an issue with a Gigabyte board. I will NEVER buy a MSI board again after the headaches I had.

Not so great

Pros: - Lights were cool for a little while.
- The board was well balanced, and PCI slots were sturdy.
- Plenty of plugs for USB connections.
- Easy install guides for case lights and power buttons. Handy for new builders.
- Sturdy SATA ports.

Cons: - USB failed in Windows 10 after a few months.
- Software and other utilities were unresponsive even with the latest firmware and software updates.
- The board failed very quickly.
- Unresponsive technical support.

Overall Review: The 2011v3 family of motherboards had horrible luck ever since launch. Many of the x99 boards were rated poorly for its high fail rate. This board is not an exception to that. While being a slightly stylish board, this board started to have USB problems very early on and I had to find workarounds. Not only did the USB slots gradually failed one by one, the board failed entirely after a year of use for me. I am not a true enthusiast and I bought the board out of convenience. This board had never been used for over clocking. I've not tested its limits, and so far this board had failed to perform normal computing tasks. At the time of this review, I am still waiting for technical support to approve my registration for an account to send out a ticket (ridiculous.) I can't seem to get a hold of any one from Gigabyte to apply for RMA.
