Summary: I got this mobo for an i7-2600 processor. It's hard to find an 1155 socket on an ATX form factor these days unless you're willing to buy asus or some off brand trash, which I was not. It's a no frills mobo that does exactly what I needed it to do. It booted right up with no issues.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I like to keep my reviews short and sweet so please let me know if this was helpfull. This Motherboard when coupled with the right hardware is a real screaming deal! Literaly such a good price and so much to offer.
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.
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.
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.
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.
