GIGABYTE G1 Gaming G1.Sniper Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Great match for i7-4770K! Excellent value. Has 2-PCI E 3x16 slots for 2 video cards (4 monitors). BIOS relatively easy for OC by 'average' user skill set. Current OC @ 4.5 MHz is rock solid. (Building computers for myself -and a few others- since 1998)

Cons: A few more USB ports would be nice. 2- PCI Express 3.0 x16, BOTH capable of running @ x16 at the same time, would be nice too.

Other Thoughts: At first, I erroneously blamed this board for issues actually being caused by a intermittently bad SSD! During that very frustrating period I contacted Newegg, and they issued me an RMA, no problem. The Newegg rep was very pleasant, during our RMA discussion.

But before sending it back I took it to a 'real' computer shop. Their tests discovered the bad SSD. Once I replaced the SSD, this board has worked GREAT! Perfectly!

This board is currently running with a 4770K @ 4.5 MHz. with Core Volt @ 1.25. G.Skill DDR3-2666 @ CL11-13-13-35 @ 1.65 V, Samsung 840ProSSD, Corsair i100 H20 Cooler. Idle temps are in the 27-30 range. wPrime test temps 65.
I'm really tickled with this computer, and happy with the way Newegg dealt with me.

PS. Newegg also allowed me to swap out a RAM purchase! A full refund showed up in a very reasonable time on my credit card statement.

I've done business with a lot of computer hardware vendors over the years, and this is why Newegg is still getting my business.
