5/ 5

Pros: UPDATE: I purchased another AORUS Master board for a second build; and, the newest system is flawless (just like the first one). These are the most amazing boards. My first build with the Aorus Master (reviewed below) coupled with the 9900K processor is an extremely stable system. Having purchased the most cost effective G. Skill RAM, I have had absolutely no compatibility problems. The 9900K runs at 28 degrees with air cooling (with the Dark Rock Pro 4). Without overclocking, my system from start up to bringing up Windows takes a total of 18 seconds.

I cannot understand the negative reviews this board has received; however, I'm not one to overclock my system - guess that's a major reason why I don't have computer problems. With the 9900K and 32 gigs of RAM, there is no need to OC.

First, the Gigabyte AORUS Master is a high-end board that easily supports the Intel 9900K processor. Having three M.2 slots available is a plus. After almost 35+ years building systems, this board is without a doubt the best I have ever had in a system! The quality of this board is the best that I have ever seen; and, this observation is based on the components used and the design of a very fine product.

Everything in this build went together without a hitch and I am most pleased with the performance of the board. If you are one that is interested in a board with a rigid construction and "first-rate" quality components, then this is without a doubt the board that you would want in your system.

Cons: This is really not a con; however, when installing a M.2, I would recommend using the middle slot. Though doing this will disable the sata 5 connector, this is a very small trade-off. Also, when installing a M.2 in either the top or middle slots, be sure to have the correct stand-off with the correct threading for the board (too bad this is not included with the MB hardware pack).

On another note, those that had the problem with the board cycling on and off for several seconds - this IS NOT a board problem but incorrect installation of the M.2 in the top slot.

Overall Review: I am defiantly going to purchase another one of these boards for another build to upgrade our AV system in the movie room. I find this board to be extremely stable.

Last note; for those that gave this board a bad review, my advice would be to purchase a department store computer at WM or Best Buy. Leave the system building for those that know what they're doing.

Pros: It works.

Cons: I've been through 3 of these motherboards and every single one of them produced an annoying high pitched noise.

I tried basically everything, switched out three mobos, changed BIOS settings, I even swapped the PSU. Nothing helped.

Overall Review: I'm just very surprised I've never heard any other complaints while looking up reviews and such :(

Good while it lasted and customer service is horrible blamed me for damaged rma board

Pros: Alright while it did work

Cons: Stopped working after 4 months
The software for there apps is trash causes a lot of crashes

Overall Review: I bought the board in Feb and it stopped working in June. The RGB lights went out and the debug code reader was showing nothing. I called for a RMA and it went good I thought at first and the new board showed up today and the M.2 cover had no screw to hold it so I guess in shipping it knocked off the cpu protective cover and damaged the pins. and i sent pics and got a hold of a manager named Chuck and he said they do not send boards without screws. After a talk to him he said that the pins couldn't be damaged cause where they are and after looking again they can so know I have to send both the original failed board and the new one that is messed up in shipping to them and then they have to do a investigation to see if it was me or the shipping. And he couldn't answer what the outcome would be if they found me fault or it was shipping that was fault so I may still get charged the hold that is on my account for the second board that arrived faulty. I will say it is a nice board but hopefully you do get a good working board and you do not have to deal with customer service at first i did think it was going rather well but it turned into a nightmare fast when the new board arrived today

Pretty awsome actually!

Pros: -Tough board
-Clean look and feel
-Easy to install
-Everything works great after I updated the BIOS.
-Overclocked my CPU i9-9900K, RAM 4000MHZ Trident ROYAL, and EVGA XC ULTRA 2080.

-12 phases throughout all their motherboards in this chipset series and seriously brings the power needed for big setups like mine.

-Power button in the I/O shield is very welcomed especially if you run test benches. Also very very helpful when putting together a new setup and trying to troubleshoot and such.

-Heatspreader fins on the motherboard are really great. I have lots of airflow in my computer and it shows because its keeping the inside nice and cool even with my 2080 dumping heat inside the case. So glad they brought those back.

Cons: -Gigabyte. What is wrong with you. I have been a great user of your PC parts and this is how you do us? You shipped the BIOS with F7 so when I put everything together windows wouldn't load. Was just getting stuck at the splash screen.

-Spent 2 hours taking everything apart and troubleshooting. I had read other people say they had to update the BIOS on other motherboards, but i thought, "No way. Gigabyte wouldn't do something that stupid." I went in and updated the BIOS to F8 and everything worked flawlessly.

-Gigabyte. You are going to lose customers doing this sort of stuff to us. The Motherboards should ship with the latest BIOS especially these ones that deal with the i9 chipsets. Not to mention how many people will misdiagnose the motherboard as being bad because they don't know they need to update the BIOS to F8 out of the box! So long story short once I updated the BIOS this machine became the biggest beast I have ever used. So far enjoying it very much. Only had it a little bit.

-Installing RAM was easy when i had the motherboard on its box outside the case doing the pre-install. However when the board was standing up inside the case i had a really hard time getting the ram into place. Maybe the metal ram pin protector shields are a little thicker than normal in the middle where the ram slots in? Something to look at.

-Do not use XMP profile for RAM if you are using the NVME M.2 PCIx4 option. Your lanes will get used up. I couldn't transfer any files from my SSD to my M.2 until i turned of the XMP profile and just overclocked the RAM to 4000. Runs great now. Would basically just sit there and say calculating even for a 180KB file. I am pretty sure this goes across the board for all motherboards right now though.

Overall Review: -I Absolutely recommend this board so far. Everyone says the BIOS is clunky as and such, but I have no issues with it even with the overclocking I did. I am glad I went with Gigabyte again because i read horror stories about other boards and Gigabytes customer service is usually pretty good.
-If you are a hardcore overclocker then yea, the BIOS is super messy and needs to seriously be tidied up. If you are new to overclocking it will be very overwhelming because again the BIOS needs to be tidied up a lot. The easy BIOS is okay and updating the BIOS through there was extremely nice. However what in the world is up with your BIOS update options Gigabyte? You have a full update and the other one that basically says like hey lets see if it works? What is that? There should only be the full install safe option. You get someone in there that doesn't know what they are doing and it could end up very bad for them.

- Mechanically reinforced RAM and PCIe headers are a really goo idea
- External temperature probes allow to make a well customized cooling strategy

Cons: - Hardware somewhat let down by BIOS and Windows utilities (not just GUI, performance issues also)
- Rear "armor" plate required additional standoffs in my case that then needed screwing with PCIe card brackets. Not difficult.

Overall Review: Owned for 3 months (sorry Newegg !)

Was very disappointed compared to my AORUS Gaming 7 initially.

Beta BIOS's have been rolling out regularly and things are getting better quickly. Right now, with Beta F9C I have a stable overclock, stone cold VRM's and no problems at all.

Based on my experience with Gigabyte motherboards, and the thermal performance (including whole board thermal images) I expect to get exceptional lifetime from this board.

My First Gigabyte Motherboard

Pros: Nice product quality, a lot of accesories, quiet motherboard.
I have a i9-9900K Overclocked at 5ghz full time. Motherboard is a beauty.

Cons: The only thing i didnt know where to connect a connector that says Gigabyte from the Tower Case.

Besides that everything else is working perfect. Am using Gigabyte SmartBackup.

Overall Review: I never used Gigabyte motherboard. They have a new Consumer, well if they keep the good quality of course.

Decent motherboard

Pros: It works... kind of. See other thoughts

Cons: My settings were not being saved between power cycles. I believe turning off the dual BIOS feature with the jumper is what eventually fixed this issue. That was annoying. Additionally, I wasn't able to use all of my PCI slots. See other thoughts. Not necessarily a con since it might be user-error that is preventing me from using all of them. I just eventually gave up after suport's suggestions did not work. It wasn't the end of the world since I had plenty of SSD storage

Overall Review: My decision for upgrading my motherboard was between this and the ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero WIFI. I went with this because it is cheaper and potentially has better VRMs than the ASUS offerings. People say the ASUS has a better, more user friendly BIOS. The ASUS also has AI overclocking which I've heard both good and bad things about. Good that it can be helpful to get things overclocked quickly and bad that it prevents some peoples systems from booting, so your mileage may vary.

Was is bit unnerving to see the motherboard power itself off and on off and on a couple times on first boot after total power loss. I guess this is part of the motherboard's POST process.

I had trouble getting my x16 GPU, and two x8 PCI SSDs working with this motherboard. I keep getting error code C2 which does not have an error message assigned in the manual. I contacted support and they kept telling me to pull the battery and re-try by moving the NVME M.2 SSD to other slots. I tried all 3 available M.2 slots on the board, with and without SATA drives plugged in. But, none of these configurations worked. In the end, I had to unplug the lowest PCI SSD, depopulating the lowest PCI slot to get the system to boot. I am unable to use my 2nd PCI SSD. This might be a limitation of the CPU (too few lanes? but my ASUS rog z77 with i7-3770k with the same amount of PCI lanes WAS able to use all PCI devices as well as several SATA drives. it might be that my NVME SSD is taking additional PCI lanes?, but the manual does not indicate that my setup is unsupported and it is unclear as to why this configuration is not working and causing error code C2).

I am running an i9-9900K with this motherboard and doing a modest overclock still trying to find a happy and stable place between 4.5 and 5ghz
