Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out.
Summary: Cheapest high-quality motherboard I could find. It supports AMD Crossfire but not nvidia SLI. I wanted it for the 4 memory slots, so I could upgrade my RAM from 8GB down the line without having to pull out the RAM I put in it.
Summary: The ultra fast setting in the bios.. (should you enable it).. is so fast, that you will need to disconnect the hard drive if you ever want to get back into the bios. I am seeing Win 7 boot in 7 seconds with a Samsung Pro 840 SSD.
