Working with VMware

Summary: I purchased this mother board for use with VMware and it appears to be working ok. I did have two purple screens on VM's I moved from VMware host but I have not confirmed it to be the motherboard. It does have this weird thing where it takes a long time after POSTing saying "loading operating system" and it sits there for as much as a few minutes before it boots off my Adaptec RAID card. It's listed as "durable" but I kind of doubt that.
Summary: After a normal system shutdown & cold boot, I have an issue with the version F12 BIOS reporting "The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes of voltages" and reducing the memory speed. This is becoming a bit annoying, so I am lowering my rating. Note that I am NOT overclocking, which is what makes this so aggravating. This issue seems to be resolved by the UEFI BIOS version U1, mentioned below.
Summary: I decided to upgrade my motherboard to this one. My only complaint would be that it can only handle four system fans. So far I was able to Over Clock my i7 2600k with this board to 4.3ghz and running stable.
Summary: I purchased this board as apart of a newegg combo. I got ver 1.3 and right from the box I experienced boot loop issues. After a google search and seeing a few 70+ PAGE threads on this issue existing for several months now, I am most likely going to just go with an ASUS board. Occasionally I can make it into the OS, or I can get into BIOS which often has static and gray/black digital blocks over what you need to read.

Summary: Relability has not been tested - needs time to pass. Aside from this there is something to share with other purchasers and Amazon - read on before you buy. Having looked in detail at the Gigabyte site and noted this model comes in two revs (v 1.0 or v 1.3) I queried with Amazon which version I would get if ordered through Amazon. It turned out they could not say or check the packaging!!!!
Summary: Mitt första bygge med ett gigabyte-moderkort är lite av en besvikelse. Det är billigt och känns billigt både hårdvaru- och mjukvarumässigt. Framförallt Touch BIOS EFI som är huvudgrjen med detta moderkort är en stor besvikelse. En annan besvikelse är BCLK-överkockningen os nästan var obefintligt. Det får Acceptabelt så länge innan jag hunnit få lite mer kött på benen.
Summary: Cette carte mère a un défaut connu d'après les nombreux commentaires sur internet : boot en boucle sans aboutissement. Tel a été mon cas à l'installation... Carte échangée en 48h par Amazon (BRAVO!). Problème non retrouvé heureusement sur le modèle de remplacement.
