Update Your BIOS!

Overall Review: I thought it was important to post this review to say that this motherboard does not support all 9th gen out of box. I don't know what is going on but the F8 bios is funky. After lots of headache and starting the RMA process, I realized a BIOS update would work. And sure enough it did.

Wow, im impresseed...

Pros: -first off, BEST looking MB ive ever had....RGB fusion runs all my lights, and its logos leds nicely, memory slots are just outstanding for my white Balistik sticks, they too work with RGBFusion.
-The mat black finish/top coat is sweet. Not to shiny, but reflects the RGB lights nicely.
-Board feels solid, and I wasn't the least bit worried about using a bit of pressure connecting cables/cooler
-XMP logo on board lights up if you have it enabled....off if you don't, nice touch
-I read ALOT of reviews on this board...ALL of them rate this board best in class, best CPU power delivery (12+1 digital, no doublers,)
-Booted up first time, and dozens of times since. Recognized all my drives, all my fans.
-has extra temp sensors (not to accurate) but a nice addition....I have one in front of, and behind my radiator (checking airflow configurations …)
-Drivers loaded from disk first shot,....Lan, Wifi, Audio, Codex's, all activated no problems (I loaded a few of the utiitys I need for updates, MB diag, ect...but not the bloat ware)
-BIOS is do able, ull get use to it....cause you have too

Cons: Honestly, none yet, im impressed. Ive used Gigabyte MB before (X99,Z270), and they always ran great, this one is no exception, ran first boot, and looks sweet doing it

BIOS is a bit , slow, feels clunky. It does have a setting for mouse speed while in bios, it helps. Little to no information as to what settings function is in lamens terms, what changing them does, or why can I even change that? No explination that if you click on an option you CANT change, that nothing happens, no message u cant change it, just nothing. The ones that can change will change about 2 sec after u click on them. Like I said...the BIOS is really the only ding I can give this board, and it is functional and you get use to it.

Overall Review: If your running a 9th, or even 8th gen chip....this is the board to get. Check the reviews on line from tech tips, tomsHW, OCers, ...all rate this board HIGHLY. I was upgrading an old i5, to the new 9th gen i5 9700k, and this board is really over kill, BUT I LOVE IT. I got it on sale for $179.00 us, and it was worth every penny. This board was one of the few WiFi boards out there for 9th gen chips, and is the main reason I first starting looking at it. But after reading the reviews...hands down best board ive ever owned

A solid product and well worth your hard-earned money.

Pros: I've owned this board for two months now. Background: I have worked in IT for 24 years; my first several years were in the 90s in a small shop that built PCs. I've built with ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE, and Asrock in recent years.

PROS:
-A thick, solid PCB that will not warp or flex too easily
-Quality voltage regulation featured by the Aorus Elite, Pro, Pro WiFi, and Ultra boards (all have the same setup). Note that ASUS, for example, doesn't have nearly as good of voltage regulation until you hit their top-end boards, and charges considerably more for their ROG STRIX Z390-E (with a lesser quality setup). MSI has similar quality with their MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, but it is also a step up in price.
-Realtek ALCS1220 audio onboard codec, separated from the electrical components on the PCB to eliminate crosstalk, using quality capacitors. It sounds quite good on a Logitech 5.1 speaker system, I had no crackles, pops, or other defects.
-Two M.2 NVME slots for SSDs, both with included heatsinks (Note:, Using these will take away some SATA ports; read the specs and know this beforehand, this is how the Z390 chipset works for EVERYvendor and board, there are only so many PCIe lanes)
-Onboard Intel AC wifi, which I have tested with a Ubiquiti AC-PRO access point (it works very well, though I normally go wired) and an Intel gigabit NIC
-Two metal-reinforced PCIe slots (perfect for my SLI setup) and metal-reinforced DIMM sockets, to prevent slot breakage and board warping
-Two temperature sensors headers onboard, which will (with the included sensor leads) let you monitor temperature of areas in your system if desired
-A plethora of all of the necessary ports, USB2, USB3.1, and USB3.1C to meet your needs
-Gigabyte DualBIOS to protect from an accidental BIOS corruption
-A built-in backplate; you'll never lose it, small thing, but a welcome one

Cons: CONS:
-BIOS. This honestly isn't the worst thing in the world, but Gigabyte's BIOS is not intuitive compared to ASUS (the consistent leader of the pack in BIOS implementation) and has lots of items buried in sub-menus, and not always defined clearly. Once you have the board set how you like it, it's not going to be an issue, but if you're a tweaker, you're going to need to do some research to define some options, or even find out where they are. Thus my deduction of one star. Also, make sure you're up to the latest revision (F9 at this time); it's not hard to find online.
-I'd have loved to see three additional things on this board; a debug LED, a Displayport connector in addition to the HDMI, and power/reset CMOS buttons on the backplate. Admittedly, this would raise the price, and nobody has the debug/LED, or power/CMOS buttons at this price (a few have the Displayport). Not knocking anything off for this, just me wishing.

Overall Review: I felt I had to review this board because a lot of the poor reviews seem due to inexperience, poor research, or not understanding limitations of the Intel Z390 chipset (like a limited number of PCIe lanes that means putting in M.2 SSDs might turn off a couple of SATA ports).

I have been running this board for two months. When not gaming, I have run Folding@Home on my i9-9900K continuously for days, which uses 100% of my two Geforce GTX 1070 cards and 100% of all eight CPU cores at 4.8GHz max turbo speed. My system has been rock solid stable (using a Seasonic Platinum I 1000w PSU) on automatic voltage with no crashes or issues. I'm using 32GB (2 x 16GB) of G.Skill Ripjaws V PC3000, which runs at full speed with XPM turned on, no issues. All of my games have either run a minimum of 10fps faster (many more than that), or allowed me to set higher detail settings than my 4790K system (with same graphics cards) at 1900x1200 resolution.

I don't use the included software that comes with the board. I might use the RGB software in the future, however, if you're serious about overclocking, you'll use the BIOS, not EasyTune (a lot of overclocking software doesn't work perfectly and has a tendency to overvolt no matter who makes it), and you probably won't use utilities that just take up memory. I use CoreTemp to read temperature sensors and wattage. You don't need Gigabyte's software other than drivers to use this board, and all of those work fine.

I would recommend this board without hesitation as the best model you'll find under $200, and above that price, you're mostly buying fluff, or features designed for liquid cooling folks.

Something's Wrong

Pros: Easy install, good quality.

Cons: Typical (as of late) Gigabyte garbage BIOS (See Below). Myriad of LED connectors that are not in the manual. A few screws too, I dunno.

Overall Review: Having been a Gigabyte fan for over a decade I am saddened to write this review. The last board I bought 4 years ago (i7 47XX Series) needed 4 BIOS updates in order to run the RAM at what was an advertised speed.
On to today....the board I received was F8 BIOS. I am running an i9 9900, 64GB RAM. I tried for nearly a day to get an existing Win 10 installation to boot on this board, closest I came was booting to safe mode. I threw in the towel and went to do a fresh install......the install USB won't run either, go figure. Both the Win 10 and install drive freeze at spinning logo booting from UEFI.
Legacy boot on the USB says I need to run it UEFI. There is something wrong with the F8 BIOS. Why was the board shipped with it? I updated the BIOS to F9, the existing Win 10 drive booted in 4 seconds. My last board was brand new on F1 bios, this one was already on F8, no excuses. Gigabyte needs to stop pushing out garbage to "keep up" and get back to making the solid products and releases they used to.

First time Gigabyte customer - and pleased with Quality components!

Pros: Lots of reviews on youtube make this a Steal of a Bargain for powerful Gaming Rig at this $$ price
RGB options worked with GSkill DRAM module - was initially concerned with the options but no big deal here

Cons: Cables could be sleeved a bit better - exposed wires in the HD audio and USB header cables.

Overall Review: Still testing OC BIOS capabilities - let's see how it holds up once I get an RT 2080 GPU.
