Summary: Bought this board about four months ago and haven't had a problem with it at all. Running a GTX 560 Ti, i5-2500k, with 8gigs of ram. Granted, everything is stock speed so I haven't really delved into the bios just yet. For what I need, a basic gaming/everyday pc, it is great.
Summary: When I first built my PC this motherboard would keep rebooting... I figured out I forgot to plug in a certain cable. I plugged in the cable and the board worked for a month. After my return window closed, my motherboard began to keep rebooting and I'd have to reset the bios every time. This motherboard is extremely unstable and is now broken. When it worked it worked great, though. Hopefully I can get this motherboard RMA'd... it'd be a shame to lose $100.
awesome mobo for price. Awesome quality, just lacking a bit on features. But totally understandable for price!

Summary: Works perfect. Intel video is of course crap; noone should be surprised. couldnt even do 1366x768 resolution in win7 64bit. Not gigabytes fault of course. Nice to see a parallel port onboard again; and dual pcie. Solid build. Defaulted overclocking out of box for 2600k to 3.6ghz! and runs perfect! raid is awesome (intel) Best bang for buck. Slaughters my p67 asus pro.
Summary: This motherboard is exactly as described. For the beginners out there (like myself), look at the ports carefully when choosing a motherboard. For this one, I was mislead by the talk of high quality graphics (which is true), and just assumed this motherboard would have all of the display ports I needed. This motherboard only comes with an HDMI port, and nothing else (no VGA, and no DVI).
Excerpt: первый запуск только через прошивку биоса, иначе глюки страшные. Далее 3 месяца нормальной работы и опять недиагностируемые глюки, опять прошивка биоса уже на UEFI, пару недель радости, синий экран и в коробку! Печальный опыт знакомства с творчеством 8) жижи, вернул меня на asus. Я не Спец, поэтому не люблю танцы с бубном.
Pros: Цена. А больше ничего в голову не приходит.
Cons: Нет VGA, USB 3, IDE, совместимость с памятью отвратительна, скудная комплектация - хотя за эти деньги ... и еще она виснет в биосе!
