Summary: I love this motherboard and I'll tell you why. I had a similar motherboard with my i7 2600K processor and my SSD drive (OCZ Vertex 4) was super unreliable. I thought the drive was defective...it kept corrupting data. I tried upgrading the bios and everything but it made no difference. Later I bought this one and moved the drive into it. Now it works perfectly. Very pleased. Totally worth the purchase just to have everything working like clockwork.
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: I contacted Gigabyte Support about this piece of trash !!!! The biggest drawback is that it only has 2-channel sound, because of the RealTek Chip. Gigabyte Support said that's normal. Normal ? I regret buying it.
Summary: If you want a Hackintosh and you own a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge CPU, then ORDER this. Everything on this board is working perfectly as of my install of OS X 10.9. I received the rev 1.1 board and everything is perfect. Audio, Network, etc. It is ALL functional.
Summary: I normally avoid Gigabyte boards due to constant quality issues, but thought I would give this one a try for a Hackintosh. That was a mistake, I should have read the negative reviews more closely. The BIOS on this board has problems, it constantly corrupts, goes to a weird blue screen then reboots over and over. Now I get to spend even more time attempting dealing with warranty on it. Do yourself a favor, buy an Asus or Asrock motherboard instead.
Summary: Does anyone know how to connect an ssd to this motherboard? I am currently having trouble and was wondering where to plug in the power supply to power my ssd. Please any feedback would be appreciated. Besides that there have been no hiccups.
