My fifth GIGABYTE build, and so far so good - updated Apr 2019 - i9-9900K upgrade 4/15/2019 8:11:35 PM

Pros: Out of the box no problems whatsoever [FACT]
My last GIGABYTE motherboard never hiccuped for 9 years of near constant use (I know, not really relevant, but can't say the same for ASUS or MSI) [FACT]
8 fan/pump headers [FACT]
BIOS is decent [OPINION]
Build quality is good [PROFESSIONAL OPINION]
Lights are pretty [ :-) ]
If you read it carefully, documentation is OK [OPINION]

Cons: I think vertical access SATA cables would be more useful in most cases [OPINION]
If you don't read it carefully, documentation is rubbish [OPINION]
GIGABYTE utilities are not worth installing after you have OS running [OPINION]

Overall Review: This is a "post-build" review - if I discover anything else in the next few months I'll update it.

I actually bought the version with Intel Optane memory installed. I have yet to do anything with this because I also bought a 2TB PCIe SSD so there really isn't much point. If you're going to use mechanical HDD's, maybe consider that option.

Don't buy a GC-TPM2.0 - it doesn't fit......

For reference, here is a bill of material for my build, and everything was compatible and worked without issue:

CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K Coffee Lake upgraded to i9-9900K
Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS GAMING 7-OP
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 64GB (4 x 16GB) DDR4 3333 (PC4 26600) CMK64GX4M4B3333C16
Video: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 GV-N1080TTOC-8GD 8
System SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 2TB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD (MZ-V7E2T0BW)
Data SSD: WD Blue 3D NAND 1TB PC SSD - WDS100T2B0A
Backup HDD: WD 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD6003FZBX
Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series, H115i PRO RGB
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 T2 220-T2-1000-X1 80+ TITANIUM
Case: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Desktop Computer Case
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit - OEM

UPDATE: Upgrade to i9-9900K
=========================
MISC
- BIOS upgrade went with no real issue, except TPM "complained" and had to use recovery key to decrypt Bitlockered C:\
- After installing new CPU, I discovered it's important to default settings in BIOS before booting WIndows

POWER
The VRM can only just support this CPU.
At stock settings, a number of benchmark/stress apps (for example Intel XTU Benchmark) cause the board to reset due to current limiting in the VRM.
Fortunately, the P1/P2 power limit in the the CPU can be set to avoid this.
I ended up setting down to 135W before I could stably run various benchmarks/stress tests (I'm not even giong to try Prime95 !).
Actually, this isn't a bad solution - artificial high load programs get throttled and real demanding programs (in my case simulation and FPGA synthesis) don't get close to hitting power limit. I am running all cores at 5.2GHz turbo, and they get throttled to maybe 4.8 in benchmark tests, but run full out when I'm "at work".
If it weren't for having to re-install Windows and all my programs, I'd upgrade to Z390 AORUS MASTER.

STAY AWAY FROM AORUS/GIGABYTE 3/29/2019 10:35:35 AM

Pros: I have the gaming 7-op and the vrm isnt compleat garbage BUT

Cons: Everything else about this board sucks. Their audio dosent work and thier driver support online is tereible and their bios is clunky and unintuitive.
My audio actually buzzes and pops while in games even if muted, ruining the experience of my 4000$ system because i have to listen to popping and hissing even if i mute my system.
On top of that they havent done a good job setting up their propietary drivers for their realtek chip or this soundblaster software; meaning no up too date or functional drivers for you.

Overall Review: Worst of all is their service after giving them tons of info and asking for help figuring out whats wrong they just said "idk it works for us". not joking they bassically told me that i am going to have to figure out whats wrong with the software they made because "we didnt make windows so we cant fix its" referring to the software they made/modified from the realtek drivers for the alc1220 soundchip o.0 really gigabyte really?

Pros: this motherboard has the best VRM components money can buy. it has temp and current monitoring as well as current balancing.
it uses the Intersil ISL69128 pwm. The iGPU uses two Intersil's ISL99227FRZ-T 60A Smart Power Stages while the CPU core uses eight ISL99227BFRZ-T 60A Smart Power Stages. The inductors are the same 76A inductors we see on X299 motherboards, so this VRM is more than capable or running a OC'ed i9 9900K. there is also a 6000rpm fan for the VRM if temps go past 90c which with a i7 8700K at 5GHz never went above 60c.

Cons: NO WI-FI but that can be fixed with a ad-in card or a $10 usb wi-wfi drive.

Overall Review: I have this board and overclocking a i7 8700K to 5.3Ghz was no problem.
I would still recommend this over some of the new Z390 boards because of the VRM alone.
