Summary: I have bought a number of different motherboards from Gigabyte, and they have all been well manufactured, solidly built and well-supported. This is one more to add to that list. I bought it to build a mini-hackintosh... it works well, and I'm very happy with it.
It failed one week after Amazon return period ended.

Summary: I was initially impressed with this motherboard. It seemed perfect for HTPC. I purchased it with 8 gigs of ram and Core I3 2105 which has the HD3000 graphics built in to the CPU. It was much faster than my older Gigabyte motherboard with Nvidia chipset and Intel Core 2 Duo 7500 with 4 gigs of ram. This weekend, the motherboard starting going into an endless boot loop without getting to the BIOS screen.
Summary: A few things to consider before buying this board. First, it does not have a plug for front LED lights. This means when you turn on your PC, there will be no light to tell you it is on. I was little surprised by this as every board I have owned has had this. Also, this board does not have a ps2 port (older keyboards and mice).
Summary: This board worked from the start contrary to other reviews. I updated to F7 bios using the provided @Bios utility. Crazy I know, but it has dual bios so I wan't too worried. Using two SSDs in AHCI mode + 2TB HDD. Running Ubuntu 11.04 x64 and Win7 x64. Stress tested overnight w/o problems. Very pleased. I'm used to higher end enthusiast boards. UNINSTALL the Gigabyte utilities if you install them.
Summary: Over the past 2 weeks I have had the great pleasure of having hands on experience in putting together not 1, but 4 of the Gigabyte H67N-USB3-B3 boards. All 4 builds were to replace 4 prior Intel i3 530/540 cpu's mated with Gigabyte H57 microATX boards utilizing different mfg/make of DDR3 and all with AMD HD5450 graphics cards based in Silverstone cases in HTPC's throughout the house.
Summary: CPU: Core I3-2100T Processor RAM: 2x Samsung MV-3V4G4/US 4GB PC3-10600 DDR3 Desktop Memory Module (1333MHz PC3-10600) System drive: OCZ Technology 60 GB Vertex 2 Series SATA II 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD22VTXE60G Mass Storage Drive: Samsung 500 GB SATA 2.5-Inch Hard Drive Case: Thermaltake Element Q Mini-ITX Chassis with Built-in 200W SFX Power Supply VL52021N2U It's amazing what QA could do for products - if Gigabyte carried out any, that is.
