Other Thoughts: I keep buying these things. So should you.

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

2 out of 5 eggs When it works, it's great. But this MB crashes violently. 09/29/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Fast, Easy to set up, Feature filled.

Cons: Every so often (every few months to every few hours) the BIOS resets itself. If you use RAID, that means it will suddenly start writing garbage all over your disks. I have two of these boards and they both do this.

The heat sinks have aluminum Gigabyte logo plates glued to the top. For the Northbridge chip, this ruins the heatsink's ability to shed heat. Since the chip is probably under the graphics card, it will overheat and the BIOS will resset more often.

Other Thoughts: Too bad these boards are flakey. They have the most features per dollar of any micro-ATX board I've seen.
