David L Brooks, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: been running this every day since purchased with a Intel Core i7 3820, 32 Gigs of Corsair 1600 MHZ, a SanDisk Extreme SSD 120 GB SATA, 1 TB WD Black hard drive, Corsair Hydro Series High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H60, and 1 Panasonic bluray burner. all purchased here at Amazon. Running WIN 8.1 Pro 64 bit. This board is a little tricky when installing the SSD and setting up the rest of your SATA drive hardware.

Solid for 6 months - no problems

Jo Osborne, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: I switched to Gigabyte motherboards about 2-3 years ago when (in my estimation), Intel seemed to be having a lot of issues with its motherboards. I have 2 EP45s and a P67 (all Gigabyte) that have been rock solid. I was a little nervous about the purchase as I, too had read the Newegg reviews. It seemed as though I would have to spend $400+ to get a solid X79 chipset. I crossed my fingers and got the Gigabyte X79 w/8 dimm slots ($269.99 + free ship + no tax).

Just dont do it.

Russell, Amazon
6 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the first time I ordered something that didn't work when I took it out of the box. yay. If you think you might get lucky, pop over to newegg and look at the reviews. Its mildly comic. Mine will turn on for about a second then turn off. I dont give up easy; I spent an entire saturday troubleshooting memory, shorts, connections, basically anything I or the internet could think of. So now Im returning.

You Can Do Much Better...

Sony Alpha Filmmaker, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: I bought this motherboard and have regretted it since about one week in. My guess is that this motherboard was rushed to market to cash in on all the LGA 2011 early adopters and was not ready.... I really recommend you try a differnt Motherboard, if not another brand completely. This will be my last Gigabyte purchase. Good Luck!

Useless!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: I have had this mobo for a few months now and it has caused me one headache after another, the latest problem is my entire system just locks up, with out warning and no indication in any of the windows 7 logs as to why the only thing that can be done is to hit the reset button. I have tried more than 5 times to contact this companies tech support department for assistance and have yet to get a reply back.

The Board Needs Some Serious Revisions!! Beware!!

The Legal Beagle, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: I've been building PCs for about 20+ years and from time to time we all encounter a dud product. This is one of those products. There are so many issues with this particular board that are negative (and I've been a Gigabyte motherboard fan for many years) that I won't even begin to list them, but the main problem is the BIOS - it's a disaster. It is enough to say that other folks ought to steer clear of this one. Best regards to everyone!

Beast!

Josh, Amazon
12 April 2012
  • Summary: This motherboard is a beast! So much RAM, PCIe x16x2 and x8, LGA 2011. My computer registers as a 7.7 on the windows Experience index. Graphics card (EVGA 560 Ti) is 7.8, RAM (16GB Corsair Vengeance) is 7.9, and the Processor is an i7 3820 which is the bottleneck at 7.7. I am not complaining about that though. It's wicked fast. The only complaint I have is finding a cooler for it...

Durable, Fast, & Works Great!

John M. Brooks, Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Booted first time. Good documentation. Loaded with i7-3930K cpu, 32GB DDR3-1600MHz, SSD, & 2TBx2 in RAID0. Nice to have 6 SATA3 ports, and front & back 1394 & USB3.0. Using all 4 fan headers too. Easy to use and upgrade BIOS. Just using $10 gfx until PCIe3.0 cards arrive. Easy to install & attach everything!
