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.
Pros: This is my third gigabyte mobo, I changed from the UDP7 to this as I didn't need the amount of customization or sli the other one offered.
Cons: I have never had issues with gigabyte motherboards up until now. Now my computer refuses to restart or turn off. This is after a fresh install of windows. After every configuration I can think of nothing seemed to help. Soon I will be contacting gigabyte or seeing if I am able to exchange this fo...
NOT FOR WATER COOLING and NOT for enthusiasts who want good fan control and Gigabyte software doesn't work

Summary: The entire line-up of Gigabyte Boards are NOT for enthusiasts who want good fan control and Gigabyte software doesn't work with windows 8 or 8.1 ONLY the 1 white fan header supports PWM which is not the industry standard. Even older motherboards usually have 2-3 PWM channels.
Summary: I really love the motherboard. It was all i wanted and more. The only BIG issue i had with it was the Audio. I don't know if it is a buggy driver or the motherboard, but ever so often my entire Audio has the Robot/Static sound.
Pros: I love the color since it goes really well with my NVidia HAF X Case
Cons: I made a review on this board last 6/10/2013 under Marley. After using it for a week or so a problem came up just like WF? said it Hangs all the time. it'll work good for a minute then hang...then work.....then hang. Sometimes it will boot and load with no problem and sometimes it'll boot and tur...
Summary: While I am sure they will get it right after some more work on their part, I just can't roll the dice and hope another mb will be more stable. It just sucks I got to eat the costs to ship this back and find something that will work.
Pros: Although very expensive that cost was more easily justified by the shear number of features on the MB. The on board sound is very good, which negated my need to buy a $200 sound card. I really do like this board when it runs...
Cons: This board has been terribly unstable for me and I am tired of trying to stabilize it. I swapped out a good 64GB worth of RAM from various manufactures and various speeds. (They where dual module kits ). I am not running overclocked, everything is at stock speeds, voltages, settings. I tried vari...
Summary: my first gigabyte board, im a ROG man but wanted green instead of red. turns out all i can see is RED! Displays A0 code constantly, not sure it's suposed to. theres something with the z chipsets that is incompatible with my dsl.
Pros: Only black and green mobo, that makes it the fastest b&g mobo. sounds is good, windows loading makes an excellent stress reliever.
Cons: Hangs all the time. it'll work good for a minute then hang...then work.....then hang. can't workout a cause. i tried to use the factory 4.3ghz, just to see what it does, same thing. takes about 5 minutes to load from a brand new 1tb wd black hdd. can't control fan speed for cpu even in bios. it's...
Summary: Everything is fine apart from major sound issues. It started out where the sound would become hugely distorted when more than one thing was happening ie in game/ventrilo/youtube video. The only way to fix would be a restart.
