First time's an epic fail, the second time's a charm.

Eric Stalsworth, Amazon
4 September 2014
  • Summary: The First motherboard amazon sent me was clearly used scratched up and had the paint or what ever chipped or worn off of the heatsink above the processor. I was pissed. I cant for the life of me, figure how they could mess this up this up when i clearly on paper bought a new motherboard. Not used.

Not what I expected

Matthew g., Newegg
29 November 2013
  • Pros: Tons of features Nice looking Lol didn't catch fire like it could on old ones
  • Cons: Where to start, read other people's posts, same problems. I really wish I could love this motherboard like I wanted to but it is so unstable. Even when updating every it is still not where it should be compared to other motherboards. Can only get my 3930k to 4.3ghz when I know with my watercoolin...

Very Unstable!

Linda W., Newegg
5 August 2013
  • Pros: This motherboard came with every option I was looking for and was a decent price for what is included.
  • Cons: I have always bought Gigabyte motherboards and after owning this one I have been unsure about supporting Gigabyte products in the future. This board is the most unstable motherboard I have ever had and after upgrading the bios it is still very difficult to keep stable. It runs fine with one GPU i...

Great idea for a fully integrated X79 Solution

Gerhard B., Newegg
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I really want to love this board. It has everything you could want in a decent workstation. However, stability is not there, and this is likely becuase of storage firmware related issues.
  • Pros: Supports LGA 2011 CPUs, intergrated Creative Labs X-FI sound, tons of Intel SATA II and 2 - SATA III connections, 4 Marvel based SATA III connections, Fresco USB 3.0, UFI and EFI BIOS options, and more. Overclocking features are fantasic, as are the multiple BIOSes and the ability to easily selec...
  • Cons: The biggest gripe with this motherboard is that it Gigabyte has not been updating the drivers or the Firmware. The Intel Storage firmware (OROMs) are a full revision behind with the iRST (11.5) and server revisions out of date with the RST Enterprise (3.2). Additionally, the drivers for the X-Fi ...

User Review

Jack P., Newegg
2 March 2013
  • Summary: Every motherboard I've bought had the option of disabling on-board audio. So this was a definite "Wish I would have known before purchase"
  • Pros: Several CPU options including 8 core Xeon processors besides i7's
  • Cons: On board Creative X-Fi chip CANNOT be disabled in BIOS (Using F11 BIOS) if you want to upgrade sound chip. Just bought a Creative ZXR. Only thing you can do is disable it in Windows, which is cheesy.

Enthusiast board, for an Enthusiast

Eric L., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • Summary: Hope this computer lasts me at least 7 ~ 8 years since nowadays computers are so durable.
  • Pros: So I bought this board a couple weeks ago and I finally got it all squared away. I was going to go with the top of line CPU at the time (i7-3960X) but then I decided to wait for the newest Core Processor (i7-3970X). My friend had the first gen 1366 Socket processor and it’s lasted him quite a whi...
  • Cons: The board is huge but I’m glad it is because it means I paid for more since it is feature packed!

Very disappointed

Jean L., Newegg
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm running the intel i7-3960x extreme a evga 690 and 32gb of ram off a 1300w PSU. It's sad because I've ALWAYS used Gigabyte boards in my builds or builds for other people. I've been recommending Gigabyte boards since I first used them in my builds in 2002. Now I've already RMA'd the board once.
  • Pros: Everything this board offers "seems" nice
  • Cons: I bought this board in the beginning of October. It is now Dec 1st. After trial and error testing all other parts and sending them back to newegg, I finally narrowed it down to the motherboard. This brought me into November. I sent the board to Gigabyte for RMA and they never told me what was wro...

DO NOT BUY

Matthew M., Newegg
29 November 2012
  • Summary: This board is a "purchase at your own risk" type, where there are a lot of known issues (perhaps just with a certain batch, but can you take their word for it?)... Bottom line is, until the price drops dramatically (like at least $100), I wouldn't recommend chancing this...
  • Pros: - ran "unstable" for 3-4 months (LAN was completely broken)
  • Cons: - used a BIOS update to stabilize the LAN, afterwards the LAN actually became stable but the BIOS was wrecked and the board itself was very unstable, frequent BSODs, shutting down, power issues, not to mention the fact that the CMOS reset (inside the case) would not work 100% of the time, the dua...

Good Board

justin T., Newegg
19 November 2012
  • Summary: fantasic board. I'm dropping an egg due to the bios not supporting my 16bit keyboard. GigaByte - fix the bios!
  • Pros: It works great and fast. Was exactly what I wanted. There were some early issues, but later bios's worked out the kinks. Great enthusiast board. One (sorta) pro - the cheesy heat sinks aren't visible under all the cards. The bios is really easy to navigate, and its well thought out.
  • Cons: Cons - the order of the expansion slots is rather stupid, and gets really cramped or you loose a pcie slot with sli configs.
