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: 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: 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: Bought this board to host an Ivy Bridge i3-3225 CPU and 16GB of DDR3-1600 memory, replacing an older Gigabyte EP45-UD3R and C2D CPU. Assembly was quick and the board has performed flawlessly, both under Windows and as a Hackintosh. Very satisfied in all aspects -- just love this board.
Summary: I bought this to build my hackintosh and it worked without any unexpected issues. The board still runs fine and I never had a horrible experience with Gigabyte motherboards in the past, this is my 3rd one. Just remember, I did run into one issue with the ethernet. The newer versions of this board, which I got, the ethernet will not work with the hackintosh. I had to buy a wifi card.
