Great motherboard for the cost. Would purchase another from Gigabyte in the future instead of Asus.

Summary: Great motherboard for the cost - it supports RST which I'm taking advantage of by re-using an older 32GB SSD to cache the contents of a sluggish 2TB drive I'm using as a boot volume. It's much faster and I have loads of disk space on my gaming PC.
Summary: A few problems with this board is that when it boots it takes a bit long for my GPU to be detected, a bit weird but otherwise a great board. Easy to install drivers, boot the OS installer and get up and running. No shut downs or BSODs, or any problems. To to warn people who use tower coolers, this will not support most with a GPU, since the CPU socket is so close to the PCI slot.

Summary: Motherboard installed easily with no driver issues or compatibility problems with the other hardware I bought specifically for this machine. Only real problem/complaint is that none of the monitor ports support higher resolutions (2560 x 1440) with my Dell U2713HM, but that was noted in the motherboard specs.
Summary: I had 'blue screen' crashes I couldn't solve, also the WI-FI couldn't handle streaming 1080p MKV files in full bit-rate. Updating drivers using official Gigabyte tool is not enough! I used DriveMax tool to update drivers. This solved ALL my issues. 4 stars just because I had to deal with this issue for weeks till found the solution.
Summary: Used in a build to connect to a TV with no wired internet access so wifi was a must. Running with Ubuntu, wifi connected right away and has a good signal. 2 HDMI outputs is awesome! My only wish was that it had support for one more system fan. 1 CPU and 1 System fan is probably enough for my use, but my case included 2 fans and it's a shame to leave one unplugged :( !
Summary: Everything about this motherboard is great, but the fact that twice in a row I've had faulty bluetooth has just really got me upset. Having to take your whole PC apart twice just to replace the motherboard is not a fun experience. This could be just a driver issue. Or it could be a hardware issue. But the fact of the matter is bluetooth has not worked consistently for me with this motherboard. Other than that though, good board.
Summary: I love GA MBs. I own a small business designing and building custom mac and windows computers and use GA MBs in almost all my builds. This little guy had everything I needed and a bit more. Price could have been a little lower but it was low enough to real me in. Be careful on your case configurations. The USB 3.0 and 2.0 headers are both towards the far corner [top back of most cases] of the MB which makes the cable run tight or too short in most cases.
