Summary: This Motherboard has is one the cheapest LGA1366 Motherboards with 2nd Gen Marvell SATA3 LGA1366 that supports RAID. The only downside about this motherboard is that its BIOS is one of the ugliest out their compared to One like ASUS. The board is perfect for people who want the latest best LGA1366 motherboard and don't do too much overclocking.
Summary: This board is everything it says it is. It was easy to install at least for me it was. I put it into a new corsair 600T and it fit very well with the corsair H100 push pull set up and i keep an average of 30 degrees celcius on my board which is fabulous. This board has alot of goodies for the money. Pros: Love the onboard X-FI 5.0 i have seen people complain about crackling but doesnt seem to do it in my system there is no crack whatsever.
Summary: Love this motherboard. Where do I start. The looks are wow. The onboard Creative chip is top of the line audio and the onboard Bigfoot Killer internet chip is fast. This board has SATA 3 and USB 3 too. I put a i7 980 Intel processor on it, with a Cooler Master Gemini cpu fan, 24 GB RAM, ATI HD 6870, 2 1TB Western Digital Black, a TV tuner, DVD RW, a Cooler Master Gold Silent 1000 watt ps all in a Cooler Master Sniper Black case.
Summary: Based on the Intel X58+ICH10R Chipset, the G1.Sniper features a locked and loaded heatpipe design, 8 power phase, Dual CPU Power and Driver MOSFETs for the best-in-class system performance and power stability. Onboard Creative's top-of-the-line Sound Blaster X-Fi Digital Audio Processor with X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity and EAX Advanced HD 5.0 technologies gives you the highest caliber audio experience.
Summary: Good board with okay options, built in sound card from X-Fi is great, color scheme looks nice and the Marvell 9182 controller is a big step up from the 9128. I still had a working i7 970 and was looking for a good X58 motherboard upgrade with SATA III that would run at supported SATA 6Gb/s, the Marvell 9182 is close, if building new I would start with Sandy Bridge or wait for LGA 2011.
Summary: I ordered this board in July 2011. Quite a few of my friends disagreed with my purchase however I must say that they are having many more problems with their Sandy Bridge builds. I know that the X.58 chip-set is on its way out. But the chip-set is a proven stable winner in my book and Gigabyte did the right thing by giving this MB the best components and sound chip-set on the market.
