Now i know why people are selling this like bad apples
4 August 2015
Summary: I bought this 2nd hand to run a powerfull Hackintosh. Now i know why people are selling this like bad apples. Its unusable. I gave up the hackintosh and using it now only with Windows. The problems i have encountered are only hardware based and nothing to do with the OS.
Summary: Motherboard is generally good, but I had a failure of the internal network interface. The company says its a software problem with my OS, but it actually isn't, because flashing the BIOS always fixes the problem for a few days. They said to return it so they can find out what's wrong.
Summary: I am very pleased with this motherboard so far. As with most Gigabyte motherboards it allows endless capabilities for overclockers. I'm currently running 32GB low voltage memory in this (which is great because technically memory is 1.5V on this board, but you can easily adjust this down to 1.35V to...
Summary: I have always liked Gigabyte motherboards. This one is an exception. This is a dual bios system, and the main bios frequently gets corrupted when the machine is sleeping. It will ultimately recover, after multiple attempts to reboot. This will easily take 10-15 minutes.
Excerpt: Another great board as we have come to expect from Gigabyte, loving their GUI bios still! This one is feature rich for its price point. I would recommend this board to anyone running LGA 2011 on a budget and don't care about esthetics.
Feature packed motherboard without the high cost of comparable X79 offerings

Excerpt: When thinking about Intel’s flagship X79 platform it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the features of a motherboard and its cost. In a market where there are outstanding offers (such as the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition and the AsRock X79 Extreme11), it is easy to ring the bill up past the one...
Summary: This MB worked great for about 5 weeks then it started a power up shutdown loop, which I could only stop by unplugging it. After about 8 week along with the power up shutdown loop, I started getting BIOS corruption errors, on which the system would recover from the backup BIOS.
Summary: Pros: Great board for the price! Great onboard components! Hackint0sh compatible! Although, I had many problems with this board; 1. There really isn't a better one for the price, and 2. Gigabyte's support is awesome! They always answer the phone, and call you back to follow up.
