Not Nearly as Good as I Hoped.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: I got this motherboard when my Asus failed, expecting it to hold me for 6 months or so until it was upgrade time again. It works, but has a quite confusing BIOS setup screen. You have to go on-line to see the manual and it is not very complete. My biggest issue with this motherboard was that my 1600 MHz RAM needs a bit of extra voltage (as most do) to operate reliably. Unfortunately, this board does not allow the user to adjust RAM voltage.

Good basic motherboard

Percy AllanO, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: This replaces an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 that died. It does not have all the bells and whistles of Asrock but it works without problems. From personal experience I find Gigabyte is the most reliable motherboard brand. I have learned my lesson and will stick with gigabyte in the future.

Good mainboard with plenty of BIOS options

Stifler, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: I have installed dozens of mainboards of various brands the last 18 years starting back with ABIT (now out-of-business). I have purchased three (GA-Z77-DS3H) in 2014 for customers with PC's running Windows XP but need to move on because of the "death" of XP. I have had no problems with any of them running Windows 7. (I don't recommend Windows 8).

Literaly such a good price and so much to offer. Pros : Great compact size, not exactly MicroATX but very close it is atx but less width. Has all the connections the average and some power users need! Looks beautifull I LOVE BLUE!

Great board for a Hackintosh!

S. Murray, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Got this board for my first Hackintosh. Only one setting in the BIOS needed changing off the bat, and the board is exceptionally stable. Can't beat Amazon's shipping speed, either. Board easily fits an EVGA GTX670FTW along with a TP-link Wireless-N card immediately beside it. Gigabit ethernet works great, and the BIOS setting for any XMP-enabled RAM should work fine as well. Works great with 16 gigs of Corsair Vengeance.

Love it but with minor issues...

Matthew Pearson, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: ETA: I say in here that the reviewer who says you can't adjust cpu voltage is wrong-- I am totally wrong about that. You can adjust Vtt and PLL but not VCore. If this is a problem for you, yeah... not the board for you. Okay, to get the obvious out of the way first-- there is NO IDE (40 pin) drive compatibility with this board.

Rev 1.1 Ethernet doesn't work with Hackintosh

George Chang, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this board for a basic Hackintosh build. Overall, it has worked well for me. However, please note, for rev 1.1 of this board (which is the one that I received from Amazon) the on-board ethernet is not currently supported. However, my understanding is that an update is being worked on.

it could have been better

Megan flynn, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: it lacks vcore a basic tuning stat that basic motherboards get for half the price and for a motherboard thats supposedly unlocked it should have been standard. For this board vcore is automatically detected and that can be dangerous for the matter of temps. I will say in every other way the board is excellent but you need to be able to control vcore it will allow for a stable overclock.

  • Summary: It is a great product, to be expectied since it is a gigabyte. It's a little big and barley fit in my tower but it's a good buy.
