Summary: Recently got this for a project I was working on and I have no complaints, this is probably the best motherboard I've ever used and I was surprised by the fiber optic part that lights up when the motherboard is in operation (Glows red as you can imagine). Definitely worth the money.

Summary: This motherboard is good enough with all of the features you need for pretty much any motherboard you buy. Although this chipset isn't overclockable, still a great choice to go with if you don't want to overclock.
Solid motherboard for the price, however missing a few ancillary features

Summary: Pros: Typical ATX motherboard. Feels solid Sleek design Inputs in the back come with a padded plate and are easily visible Cons: Only 1 video card slot (not a deal breaker, but would be nice) Missing a couple audio inputs (deal breaker for those with 3+ audio device outputs) Installation disc comes...
Summary: This motherboard is a very solid motherboard for the gamer on a budget or for someone who just needs a good motherboard for a build for casual use. Because this is a H97 board, there isn't any overclocking and you can only use 1 video card.
Summary: (Pardon for my English) After one year of not heavy usage, this board is dead, it freezes at the start up screen and shows a black screen right after it, tried to clear out cmos and switch to backup bios, both didn't solve the problem anyway.
Failed in less than a year, RMA process is not the speediest.

Summary: Failed after 8 months - would not POST. From the day you request an online RMA from gigabyte to the day you get back a repaired/refurbished unit is about 2 weeks. If you cannot afford to be out of your PC for 2 weeks, you may want to consider this.
Conclusion: As always, GIGABYTE has done a solid job with its latest G1.Sniper iteration to cater to the hardcore gamer. It features a good audio solution (though not X-fi, for some reason), and dual-LAN.
Summary: I agree with all the other good reviews of this motherboard. In addition to it's excellent function. I have to say Gigabyte provides a wonderful customer service support to backup this excellent board. I accidentally dropped my CPU on the socket and bent several pins.
