Summary: Awesome board with all the features most users need. I have been buying Gigabyte motherboards for many years. They are the only brand I will buy and to date, I've never had one fail in well over 100 purchased. They just work and don't have compatibility issues like other boards have. This board lives up to those expectations as well. Long Live Gigabyte!

Summary: I bought mine during the week of black Friday. It works very well except finding the proper drivers was a challenge. The drivers from the website are HORRIBLE (Windows 8.1). When I started using Google Chrome, I was surprised to see that Chrome would freeze Windows OFTEN. I gave the drivers the benefit of the doubt and thought Chrome might be the culprit. Eventually (and after some research), I decided to install a different set of audio drivers. Less freezing.
Summary: Running a build with an fx-8350 no issues. I don't OC anything but I did test it out. Got it to 5.0 with out any hiccups. Didn't want to try any higher and turned it back down after about 30 minutes.
