Summary: I have owned this board for 3 months now. I just encountered the 'endless boot loop' issue that others have been reporting and was able to get it to function after about 15 or so reboots. I was unaware of this issue when purchased. Now I am stuck and would need to rebuild with a more reliable board. Very upset - it won't be a Gigabyte! I was never impressed with this board anyway. Boot time was average at best (compared to other boards I own).

Summary: -------------------------- Pros: I've owned this board for 2 years now. It's a fairly stable board when it's running - as in when it's not throwing boot loop or refusal to power-on tantrums. Overclockability is great - I originally purchased a Z68XP-UD3 (non-P version) in combination with my Core i5 2500K and the UD3P was able to achieve the same OC speeds (both 4.7GHz and 5.0GHz) at slightly lower voltage settings.
A Decent Mboard that has been with me for some time.

Summary: I have owned this Mother bored for about 4 years now, it has given me no problems at all, it has even out lived my Television that i have used for a monitor. My computer use had been at least six if not more hours per night and its still doing fine, though the boot time may take a little longer than when i started with it. It has four slots for Ram up to 32gb, which for a photo editor like me helps run Photoshop for the larger photos.
Summary: I used this mother board for an HTPC build. I really like Gigabyte boards, well made and durable. This board was easy to install, setup, and allows me to over clock easily. It has the ability for pass through Intel graphics which is why I choose it. You really can't go wrong with Gigabyte for Mother Boards.
