Summary: Intel Core i7-4770K Processor i have a 7.8 rating on it. im running it at 3.9ghz it handles it no problem but anything more (4.2) it will blue screen after like 30 min of use, i have amazing cooling never goes over 33Celsius.
Summary: Currently in the process of building a new rig and decided to go with Gigabyte's G1.Sniper 5. Im still ordering components for the build but I did receive the motherboard in a rather quick time frame. The packaging seemed well done and the box itself appears to be intact and in good condition.
Summary: Gigabyte software utility suite is terrible, Slow, buggy, and bloated. At one point my audio completely stopped working. I had to turn off my power supply in order for it to work again. The I/O shield makes install unnecessarily difficult.
Summary: Intel Core i7-4770K Processor Didn't get the OC results I was hoping for. Only got a 10% lift with Corsair H110i. Otherwise it works as expected. I'll keep tweeking. Stock cooler is junk, buy something else to cooler it with.
Summary: Great looking board and the sound quality is excellent for what you pay for I got mine through the amazon warehouse deals the only compliant is that there is only one pcie x16 slots the other one is just an x8.
Summary: I bought the board for the onboard sound which may have cost a bit more, but if I have have the same quality sound onboard that I would have bought on a card that would mess up my airflow otherwise, then it's worth it. I'm running SLI with no issues from the board.
