Good if you don't want to overclock

Pros: -Looks nice
-Vram cooling is amazing
-lots of usb ports
-nice rgb

Cons: -BIOS is horrible with a lot of features missing compared to similarly priced boards
-Overclocking is next to impossible because of the horrid BIOS and inability to lock the voltage so the voltage you enter is useless because the board gives the cpu whatever voltage it wants even when you under-volt.
For example my cpu (i5-9600K) on an ASUS ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming my cpu ran 5.0 at 1.38 however when I put my cpu in this motherboard you cant even set a maximum voltage because the motherboard will do its own thing and go over the voltage you set anyways so for this board at 5.0 the board pushes it at 1.41-1.43 constantly. So long story short this motherboard isnt overclocking friendly and there are actual friendly boards for overclocking around this same price.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't purchase this motherboard again and will actually be replacing it

half way working to the point its dying

Pros: when it works its an awesome bored overclocks well Vrms are amazing temps are on point rgb works good

Cons: this bored has been awful I mean awful if I unplug it all it does it bootloop and wont cut on till I unplug it and power it on at the same time till it cuts on I can not recommend this bored as of right now VRM or not do not buy it too many problems

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte this is your fault it did not start happing till I updated my bios and then it started going crazy I want to know why and what is going on here I have a 9900k in this thing and I'm scared if its going to blow it up

5 Stars

Pros: Runs cool with passive cooling

Lots of USB Ports

Decent price on sale compared to other Z390 boards

Cons: Sata ports are difficult to plug into (maybe more a case issue as they are right where the cords come through)

Other Thoughts: It's an easy recommend, I believe several review sites also recommend it as the best value Z390 motherboard available.

way better than i expected

Pros: -solid vrm. no other board in this price range comes close to it. as another user stated, watch bullzoids vid about it. other manufactures should really take note at gigabyte in this regard. vrm's should never be skimped on. this is the cheapest board you can get with a good feature set where you can easily overclock a 9900k heavily on because of this vrm.
-very nicely constructed and excellent board layout. I actually like how it has two pci-express 1x lanes at the bottom instead of a 16x lane running at 4x. I have my vega 64 in the first 16x lane on top and my sound blaster ae-5 in the bottom 1x lane. plenty of spacing, no crowding. wish more boards had the 1x slot as the last slot like this board.
-rgb lightning on this board is perfect. it isn't crazy as some other boards, and even many gigabyte boards in higher tiers than this one. enough to give it some flash but nothing overwhelming.
-very little bloat and clutter on the board.
-latest bios update revamped gigabyte bios layout and its a lot nicer than before. they even added help tips now that actually provide some detail and help.
-plenty of little extra like rgb headers, fan headers that also provide extra amperage for water pumps / daisy chaining / delta fans, usb 3.1 external header, extra
-integrated i/o panel. as silly as I thought it would be, its actually really nice that its built on. one less thing to do, and forget to do. as much as I don't want to admit, I've forgotten to install it on a few builds before.
-no sli but i'm running a vega 64 and a freesync 1440p 144hz display so it would have gone to waste. and plus multi-gpu support has really gotten poor over the years.
-i really love gigabytes bios fan control. simple to use and a lot of features.

Cons: as of writing, none really.

Other Thoughts: -i'm running this with a 9700k at stock settings (just gigabyte core enhancement setting off) and under prime 95 with an all turbo core clock of 4.6ghz hwinfo64 reports a cpu power draw of around 185 watts, and the vrm's reported 65c. this is why this board is the best board in this price range. its vrm's cannot be beat.

The board has good feature set for the money

Pros: The board has a high quality VRM (look up Buildzoids review)
-RGB Fusion makes it easy to setup lighting, although more limited than some competitors. That said I like the you can set, in the BIOS, that all lighting switches off when the computer is sleeping; even the case power LED shuts off, a simple but great feature.
-Backwards compatible with 8th Gen CPU (Running an 8700k in it)
-Lots of IO if you have a lot of external devices
- The back LEDs light up the rear IO, makes finding them much easier.

Cons: - The system wouldn't even get to the BIOS screen until I plugged an HDMI cable into the IGP port on the motherboard, before that it boot looped endlessly and ignored the GTX 1080, with a known to be working, display port cable attached. Hopefully future BIOS updates will fix this so people don't think there is something wrong with their motherboard or GPU. The manual doesn't say anything about needing to connect to an IGP first to make it work.
-SATA ports fall under any modestly sized GPU, so if you want to add or remove drives you need to remove the GPU first. This is common, but still kind of annoying.

Great board for i9 CPU

Pros: - This mobo has very high end VRM on it which is capable of powering i9 chips, without overheating, many boards claim they can do this, but few can actually do it at low temperatures.

- Easy setup and good instructions come with the board for all of the wiring locations.

- Comes with a m.2 heatsink for improved m.2 SSD nvme performance

- I find gigabyte boards to be very durable and im never worried about breaking anything when putting in ram or power connectors and video cards.

- Has high end audio components on it if that is important to you.

- A lot of SATA ports and they are well placed.

-Very good labeling on the board for connectors, I almost didnt even need to look at the instructions.

- VRM is capable of overclocking the i9 without overheating, many boards claim they support the i9 but in reality very few can right now, this one supports it and is designed to remain cool even when overclocking.




I did a lot of research before buying my mobo for an i9-9900k, this is absolutely the best board for the money, infact many people are saying that this board rivals boards that are 2 or 3 even 4 times the price in terms the VRM and powering the i9 chips.

I encourage anyone interested to check on youtube for videos about VRM and overheating with i9 chips, because if you want to fully utilize the i9 chip with low temperatures you need to buy a higher end board at this time, this board is the best for this at the moment and the price is really good considering that.

Cons: None at all, honestly the price is great, it powers my i9-9900k perfect, and this board deserves more high reviews.

2 defective purchases - look elseware for Z390 mobo

Pros: -Colorful
-Easy to install
-Solid manual
-Great price

Cons: PCIEx16 slot was dead on the first motherboard. Everything worked fine but I had to install GPU in x8 slot which bottlenecks performance. Called Gigabyte tech support to establish it's defective and I'm not crazy lol. Solid customer service.
RMA process with newegg. great customer service
Received 2nd motherboard. CPU slot was defective and my pc would restart every 10 seconds.
RMA process with newegg. great customer service.

Other Thoughts: Very disappointed as I've been without my desktop pc for over a month...
Just ordered the ole tried & true Asrock brand. been using their boards for years so we'll see if the Taichi Ultimate works.
