Summary: this is my second gigabyte board and both work perfectly.
Pros: i built it up in a small music server with an intel i-3T (the low power one), passive cooling and power supply, 16g of ram, a corsair GT SSD, and the whole package works fantastic. and it's running 24x7x365 the mobo does a great job and turned up the first time and has not caused any problems or ...
Summary: I underutilized this board for over a year as a simple HTPC, and now I've converted it to a mid-range gaming PC. Great performance for the price, and it handles everything I throw at it. Audio is superb!
Pros: Amazing motherboard for a mid-range ITX gaming build or high-end HTPC. Tons of media features. Great analog (and digital) audio out. Dolby Home Theater software isn't junk. Supposedly supports Ivy Bridge processors if you have one.
Cons: Supports UEFI boot, but uses legacy BIOS interface. Some competitors use a new graphical UEFI environment. I like new, but this still works.
Summary: Cant get my 6990 card, or i2700k, ot Corsair 750 PSU, or Patriot 8GB Ram sticks to work, hope they are not trashed. Oh yeah, it doesnt overclock either, its a P67, thanks.
Pros: This is a second updated post. Worked for two weeks.
Cons: Is lighting on fire a con? Really, it lit on fire by its self while I was in the room, an area started to glow bright orange, and smoke pored out, its now destroyed. I dont know what to say, this doesnt happen every day.... Everyone who gave negative coments, you can sit down now, at least yours ...
Pros: Overclockable, better than Zotack apparently with regard to this point. Also Hackintosh compatible. Took two 8GB RAM modules w/o difficulty no firmware updates needed. PCIE x16 nice little gamer, small cheap. i2700, wate rcooled and 6990 on water, 16GB RAM.
Cons: Why discontinued NewEgg? Whats up I guess Gigabyte not seling anymore? no real replacement for Hackintoshes in Mini ITX size
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.
Summary: This board would be great for an HTPC, but I dont think I would recommend it for much else. You are limited to one pci-e express slot so upgradability is low. I may end up using that one slot for a pci-e card with internal USB 3.0 header.
Pros: Everything worked right out of the box for me. I haven't had the network issue that some are claiming. Make sure you flash to the latest firmware, when you get your OS running, which was F7 for me. Board came with F2 firmware installed. The included Gigabyte program will flash from within Windows.
Cons: There were a couple of minor querks before I flashed the F7 bios. USB 3.0 was not being detected correctly in Windows 7, until I flashed. It worked fine at that point. Also, note that there is no internal 19/20 pin USB 3.0 header. So you will not be able to connect the front USB 3.0 ports of many...
Summary: Contacted Gigabyte support numerous times tried to re-frame the questions too but they will not acknowledge if this board supports 22nm Ivy Bridge + PCIE-3.0 with it. They have H61 chipset board BIOS & advertise on their site saying they will support but will not acknowledge for this board.
Pros: Loaded Board! USB3, Sata 3. Layout is neat...everything is written on the board didn't even need to read the manual. Will take a HD6850 card no problem! I don't know whats up with the negative reviews..I took the plunge & couldn't be happier. H67 chipset = Full Ivy Bridge 22nm support when they l...
Cons: There's an annoying light on the motherboard! Don't know why but if you have a transparent case you gotta like lights, right! The onboard realtek sound is good but for "Stereo Mix" recording through it there is a lot of static...this is not the BOARD's fault..all realtek chipsets have this proble...
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.
