GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Well the motherboard made installing a hackintosh relatively simple. When it worked it was fast and was fairly consistent.

Cons: The audio card on this motherboard completely died on me within the first month. No big deal, I bought an external audio card that worked fine. Then the motherboard randomly stopped POSTing after a year or so of use and now I am in a very difficult situation because I cannot access a lot of vital data on my computer.

I have built computers for years and have a very high technical knowledge so this is not just some user error, the computer booted up and posted for me one the first time when building it, since that day I have not changed a single setting in the BIOS aside from the boot order. For this motherboard to fail like this is 100% unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: I had an issue with another Gigabyte board and was hesitant to buy this one. But because Gigabyte boards seem to work the best with Hackintoshes and because my friend's board worked perfectly I went with them, and they let me down, yet again.

I am not at all pleased and am extremely hesitant to purchase another one of their products. Poor and inconsistent build quality is the name of the game for Gigabyte.
