What worked was awesome.

Andrew F., Newegg
25 January 2016
  • Summary: This "review" is too late but I always meant to speak my mind about it.
  • Pros: Nice bios Had no problems working with my older parts and any other upgrades I bought later.
  • Cons: One of the LAN connections failed after about 4 months. Audio ports stopped working after about 5 months. Contacted gigabyte customer service and sent the mobo away for repairs. Received it back after a little over a month with nothing fixed.

Best z87 board for your money.

John M., Newegg
10 February 2015
  • Summary: Keep in mind what your getting for your money, this is a fabulous board with lots to offer. Wifi adapater, 4 way SLI a 5.25" bay with USB 3.0 your case dosnt have it. its great! I honestly choses this board over any other when going for an 1150 cpu
  • Pros: where to start? awesome back lit LEDs, quad SLI (if u want it) built in water cooling on the north bridge which works very well. Overclocks well. Got my 4790k to 5.2Ghz no problem. The color scheme is awesome for NVidia 7 and 9 series gpus. REBATE! - They honor it, (if your patient) and you will ...
  • Cons: Okay....with a board like this you cant but expect a few cons. Bios-little hard to get used to, but overall okay. Ram slots are a little close to0 the cpu socket. You may have some trouble with a large cooler. (But a seriously large one) Liquid cooling for the north bridge dosnt feel very secure,...

Expected better

Jeffrey T., Newegg
26 January 2015
  • Summary: OC touch would have been nice to see. The fan on the heatsink is actually quiet. (For now) Last update to the BIOS was a long time ago. Would like to see continual improvments to it.
  • Pros: Had been eyeing up this board for a long time. Finally was able to aquire it but was a bit dissapointed. Lots of pros and cons to it. 4 Way SLI support Supposed good audio gold plating on connectors, sockets, slots Green/black color scheme Good VRM section and OC'ing ability voltage read points a...
  • Cons: The audio seems to stutter/lag really bad and I have had mixed results plugging it into different sets of speakers. some result in a constant clicking/popping, others are ok. no ability to set the BIOS to ALWAYS boot into classic mode, instead of the hard to read fancy 3d version the BIOS itself ...

Marinela B., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Pros: I love this Board, it has everything I need all in one with extras, great board for a high performance build. Great colors as well as LED's in board, makes people appreciate computers more when they see it. Water cooling feature, never used but its nice to know you have it.
  • Cons: I overpaid when it was new, but the price now is a great buy.

Great budget board with some shiny additions

Jared D., Newegg
12 January 2015
  • Summary: Took half an egg off for SYSFAN header 1 & 2 placement, it's just a pet peeve of mine that, although I was well aware of, still is worth complaining about. Put it near the edge, I don't mind cpu headers being centered as that's where they'll usually end up anyways, but case fan excess belongs behind...
  • Pros: Great little 1150 gaming board for those on a budget +Green fit the theme nicely +SATA port location is great +On-board "Amp-Up!" audio is fantastic, great addition and a nice thing to see on a budget board, typically (in my own experience) these kinds of features are reserved for enthusiast and ...
  • Cons: -I'm really "not a fan" of the placement of the SYSFAN headers 1 & 2, it's just always awkward for me when case fan headers are in the center of the board. I like them at least somewhere near the side to aid in an easier wiring job as well as an overall cleaner system interior. I like the face of...

DoA Bad RMA

Michael K., Newegg
27 October 2014
  • Summary: I intend to change this review once I receive the replacement.
  • Pros: Nice layout. Neat lights
  • Cons: Board was DOA. I received the board 10 days ago and tried to e-mail newegg. Today I did a chat and began the RMA process, but that will take more than a week to complete. I wish this board had "enhanced RMA" or whatever the parlance is to allow for shipment of a new board while RMA processing is ...

Hoping for more with this second purchase

Vic Cross, Amazon
16 October 2014
  • Summary: Still hoping. I missed the return/replace date by 2 days so I had to purchase a replacement since the first one failed within days. It was my fault in taking my time finishing my project. So I will know better and will update if the second one actually works.

HarPerry, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer manufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out.
