Summary: After much searching to get a motherboard good quality and durability, I found this as well as the processor I bought, was a great happiness that I had to use! The 3D BIOS interface is also very easy to handle and without many risks. If you are searching for quality, durability, excellence and a micro size, buy it!
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 mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out. Stay away and go with MSI, Asus, and ASRock. Much more reliable for current times. We have dropped GB as a product supplier from our entire business.

Summary: I love this card, I've been a month of use, the drivers gave me no problems on 64-bit Windows 8.1 Pro. Very good audio quality, and did I mention that it is very attractive?. I put a core i5 4670k OC to 4.2Ghz, with a liquid cooling Cooler master Seidon 120M, there were no problems. Something that I really liked was not where he placed the fan headers, cost me a lot of power to connect them all in one case Cooler Master 690II Nvidia Edition.
Summary: After installing this motherboard I had too many problems to list here. First of all it would not recognize only one of my monitors. I tried to download the drivers and applications software form the Gigabyte site and I got a message that said the software was not compatible with my operating system...Windows 8.1. Then out of exasperation I tried to install the software from the supplied DVD and got the same messages.
Summary: Great board, Installed everything, posted, set my ram speeds and kept everything else stock. Booted and has run flawlessly for 2 months. I haven't changed the customizable audio at all but may try that soon as I get a slight hissing. I will update the review when I overclock the 4770k I have in the system. The color scheme is aesthetically pleasing and the green audio line is nice to look at if you have a windowed case.
Summary: Pros: This motherboard is amazing. Everything about it is great! I upgraded from the ASRock Z87M Extreme4 and this Gigabyte board blows it away! Overclocking is a breeze aswell! Cons: I am having an issue with the front microphone port aka HD Audio Header. Whether its hardware or driver related, I am simply not sure. Basically, the front audio headphone works but the microphone port does not. Windows does not acknowledge a jack when plugged in at all either.
