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: 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: 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.
