3 out of 5 eggs Received from Purchase of EVGA 1070 GPU 12/17/2016

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Coupon Code for Gears of War 4

Pros: Nice gift, game looks good, however have not redeemed it yet.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I was reading some other reviews that state you have to have some Anniversary edition update of Windows in order to play this game. I'm not sure if that is true although, Gears of war is not really my cup of tea anyways. I will probably never use this.

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard has many options you can utilize. I believe there are 6 or 7 SATA ports at 6GB. The board also has RGB lighting and LED effect which is a nice touch if you are into that sort of thing. Plenty of power phases to overclock. Sound is better than I expected. The Gigabyte utility suite is actually quite a nice feature. I personally thought I wouldn't use these, however after installing the suite, I use them quite often. They give you useful information about your system bios, fps, temperatures, overclocking and you are also able to configure the back plate LEDS from here as well. The board also comes with a digital easy to read codes that are displayed to tell you what may be wrong with the board if you run into problems.

Cons: The plug that connects to the back plate for the LEDS, which then connects to the motherboard, seems to be a bit short. It does in fact reach, and is adequate length, however, it takes some time to manipulate it into place as it is a tight fit.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this motherboard to anyone looking for high end quality with numerous options for configuring. I purchased the Rev.1.0 and I believe this is now a Rev1.1 option. The only difference I believe is the Bigfoot Killer Network LAN. this was no a big deal to me. I would also like to point out that, if you but this motherboard , only use the BIOS updates that matches your revision, (IE Rev. 1.0), updating the bios from other revisions will corrupt the board and make it unstable. If you go to the Gigabyte website, everything is quite easy to understand. Do not download the F20 bios update as you will not be able to go back to previous versions. Please no this. I have currently updated everything although I have stayed at the F8 and my board has had no problems.
