  • Pros: It was great for the last 18 months. It didn't fail, it's being retired. It will make a good gift for someone.
  • Cons: Never could get more than 8 GB of RAM to work.

  • Pros: Don't know yet. Have not been able to boot the board.
  • Cons: Even though the approved processor list for this board lists Ivy Bridge processors, the BIOS that ships on the board does not support Ivy Bridge. Unless you have a processor that will boot the board so that you can update the BIOS yourself you will have to send the board to Gigabyte to have them ...

Mixed bag

  • Summary: P67 / Z68 gigabytes are plagued by this bug. I was running F7 Bios as well which allegedly "fixes" the cold boot issue. My next board will probably be an ASUS, as I've seen my friends issues with a GB Z77 onboard sound first hand as well.
  • Pros: I bought this around the holidays for about 130. When it runs, it runs rock solid. Smooth install great sata performance. Plenty of ports all around.
  • Cons: I was playing TF2 last night while playing some music and it locked up completely. My friend has a Z77 gigabyte and has been fighting random lockups and it all boiled down to the onboard sound. So I might pick up one of those new asus xonars to eliminate that variable, because when it crashed it ...

  • Excerpt: Вроде бы шикарная плата во всем, особенно хорошо потенциал раскрывается с процами сандибридж серии К. Но... в моем случае плата не осилила кросс из двух HD5850: погорели цепи питания на материнке, контроллер I/O и одна из видеокарт.
  • Pros: 1) Наличие PCI портов, что уже становится редкостью в топовых материнках. ; 2) Отлично разгоняется и не греется. ; 3) Поддержка большого количества производителей оперативной памяти
  • Cons: 1) Всего лишь 1 порт LAN, хотелось бы 2. ; 2) Нету мелких вкусняшек типа wifi-адаптера или BT. ; 3) Очень чувствительна к БП. ; 4) Нет IDE разъема. ; 5) Нет кнопок на плате для энтузиастов (reset/power)
