Pros: For the time this was a great board and stayed reliable through out the years. Never had any issues with the board aside from an odd problem in its later years where it refused to turn on for 2 days. (Cleared CMOS and it was fine) I am not sure if it was the board 100% so will not knock off an egg.
Summary: I wish the UEFI would use a mouse interface like newer UEFI Motherboards. Using with: G Skill Sniper PC3 12800 1.5v 4GB X 4=16GB 1TB WD Black 900W PSU Corsair Carbide 500R LG Blue Ray Burner Cooler Master V8 (Fits perfect) EVGA 560TI Rocketfish 7.1 sound card (Creative X-Fi technology)
Pros: What a wonderful Board! So far no issues whatsoever and I've had this board for more than one year. I've had and worked with a lot of boards since 1996 and this one is really a strong board. This thing won't even flex.
Pros: Every Connectors are there, from Firewire to usb3 front panel. There's a big heat sink around the socket for better cooling while overclocking. Black Color which is very cool for windowed cases. Ease of use. SLI ready!

Pros: SATA 6gb, USB 3.0, eSATA, LGA1155. Plenty of great features on this board. The black theme looks great and the board itself really feels like it's a quality-made product. No errors on initial boot, and it hasn't skipped a beat since. Quickly after I set up Windows I went straight to the bios and ...
Cons: Setting the rear eSATA port to work was a little confusing but after an exchange with Gigabyte support all I had to do was change the controller mode in the BIOS to AHCI. Now I could do that with my front case eSATA port but I found out that if I do that, all my hard drives become part of the "Sa...
Pros: I love this motherboard, it hasn't caused me any issues (except 1 see cons). Everything is logical on it and you can tell it was made right. I'm not a computer genius but I installed everything myself and my computer worked right off the bat!
Cons: This is nothing to do with the motherboard itself. One of the included software programs will do auto-overclocking. I installed it but did not activate the auto-overclock feature. However, battlefield bad company 2 would always crash to BSOD about 15 min into the game. After lots of research onli...
Summary: Was looking for a high performance MB for a new gaming rig and got exactly what I needed with this product. Everything you need for no-compromise gaming is here: SLI/X-fire support, high memory capacity, on-board 7.1 sound, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.0, etc.
Summary: I don't know what some people did to have so many problems with this board but it is great. To start with the color scheme looks great and it uses good quality parts. The board also seems thick and durable. The Bios was easy to set up and easy to use for overclocking.
Pros: Great board for the price Nice color scheme easy Bios
