It works way better than the Intel board it replaced

Summary: I used this board in an HTPC re-build. I used it to replace an Intel board that was not what I wanted. I needed to reuse the i7-3770 processor, so it had to be an LGA-1155 board. This board was the right form factor and has all the features I needed.
Summary: These Gigabyte mobos are very solid. I have purchased around 20 and none of them have had any issues other than during a power outage sometimes the BIOS will revert from ACHI hard drive mode to IDE. I believe a BIOS update fixes this issue if you run into it. Great price too!
Summary: so far loving my new computer setup with this lovely gigabyte motherboard :) the specs I'm running are the following Intel Core i7 3.4Ghz Quad Core CPU with turbo boost Corsair Vengeance 8GB Memory 320GBHDD SATAx2 External Lite-On Slim usb dvd burner drive 600w PSU Corsair EVGA GTX 750 GFX CARD...
Summary: I got this item on Feb. 28th and it crashed completely March 14th. I guess that was a good 2 weeks of use. First I needed to do update for windows, after reboot on the 14th MB tried to do system restore for no reason. Then when it couldn't and found no problems it erased my OS.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my old i7 860 GA-P55-USB3 based system (to play Skyrim!), so I started looking around for a reasonably priced CPU (I had gotten the i7 for $200 a few years ago at MC). Sure enough, MC had another $200 option for me: Xeon 1230v2.
