GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks cool, good specs

Cons: This motherboard is unstable and gives me random BSODs. This happens with everything at factory specs. The frequency of BSOD goes down if I under clock my ram. Happens with any combination of ram or speed settings. Updated to latest bios and reinstalled OS a few times. BSODs are now down to once ever week or so while underclocking on my expensive components. I have spent huge amounts of time tracking the issue down and everything keeps pointing to the board itself. Very disappointed in Gigabyte as I purchased this board because it looked to be the most stable and robust.

Other Thoughts: If they use repaired boards for replacements I may just never use products from them again as I paid top dollar for a NEW, working motherboard and don't want an old fixed up beater with questionable life remaining. We will see how they handle this situation. Every manufacturer has bad boards slip through the cracks, how they handle it is what makes them a company worth buying or not.
