Will not work with High Point 2640x1 SAS card.

Anonymous, Newegg
1 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this card after the Z77x version would not support the card and now this Z77 card will not either. The older Z68 board would plug-and-play wonderful with the card and was on High Point's list of compatible boards but you cannot buy them anymore, although I think the auction sites would have older boards still for sale. I may try that since the poor overclocking of the z68 boards does not matter so much to me.
  • Pros: Overclocking seems to work good.
  • Cons: Will not support booting from the SAS card unless you press a key to "mount" the bootable media.

no help from Gigabyte

Daniel Z., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Verry poor when it came out of the box defective with a known problem and Gigabyte would do nothing.
  • Pros: good if they work
  • Cons: Took this out of the box a week ago. Keeps shutting down, all the reviews say so so there must be a known problem with them. Was a month or so out of warranty and gigabyte said to bad nothing we can do.

Manufacturer bent board

Carl C., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: Received on a cold day so I kept it in the brown box for a couple of days so it would slowly warm up. Now I only have 6 days to finish the PC. I don't want a board with a defect.
  • Pros: Price with the solid capacitors and two 6 GBs sata connections.
  • Cons: The packing material was not damaged. Received with a bent corner causing the PS/2 and USB ports to not line up correctly.

it could have been better

  • 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.

A Pleasant Surprise!

Mike Stover, Amazon
28 June 2013
  • Summary: The board arrived quickly. Packaging was secure and the board and accessories were perfect. It took me a week or so of part time assembly to put the computer together. The board was easily populated with ram and the i5 processor. I switched off the internal video in favor of a better add on board. The user instructions were complete and logical with few of the often odd grammar mistakes.

  • Summary: This is the best Mid-Range motherboard that uses the Z77 chipset, it works very well with OSX Mountain lion as well, definitely recommended.
