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. Since I forgot to unplug the power, it may damaged several samll parts on board by short cricuit. I can not boot it even I re-aligned all the pins back.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for a friend along with several other components. He has told me that this motherboard is running rock solid and all functions work as they are supposed to . I am under the impression that this is a very good, solid motherboard.
Summary: This motherboard is relatively expensive for Z77, but is does have quite a few extras including a wifi/bluetooth card. Supports 4 PCIE 3.0 cards. The only hitch is that only two can be used without blocking other slots/connectors. I installed this motherboard in a new build (my first) with no problems. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

Summary: It is the second most amazing MB I ever bought ( the first was also gigabyt GA8KNXP a very long time ago),this motherboard leaves almost nothing to be desired , I bought this MB for my bro,his Skyrim jumped from 28 FPS on GTX 560 to almost 40 FPS on maximum settings ,this is a huge leap thanks to virtu supported by the MB, his 3770K paired with Ripjaws 2133 gave him extra power as virtu will add the power of his integrated Intel IGP4000 to the power of GTX 560.
Summary: well my first board was bad when I turned on the pc for the first time it made a sound like something popped , and then the smell like something fried , well I returned the defective one and got a replacement 2 days later (that's why I love amazon) is not like the EGG site where they try to blame it on you, well back to the board, it looks nice in my case, easy to overclock my i7 3770k , love the BIOS, no cons if you can afford this just get it.
Summary: I have built quite a few systems with various mother boards and I do have to say that the G1 Sniper 3 mother board is very feature rich and has made my latest personal computer build absolutely fun to put together. Performance wise this mother board gets a rock solid 5 stars. There is not really anything bad about this board except the price could be $100.00 dollars cheaper.
