Summary: This works fine if you want to just OC a little. There's no CPU voltage control, so, no overvoltaging is possible; only a RAM voltage control. Also, I don't know why exactly, but my CPU frequency is stuck at 3.6ghz even after I cleared the CMOS. It should drop down to 3.4ghz. I also have the latest BIOS update. (Intel i7 2600K).
I'm typing this on the computer I built with this board.

Summary: I normally use ASUS for MOBO's but I read the reviews and Gigabyte has a good reputation so I decided to try it and it has been running fine for 6 months now. It was easy to install and the connectors are clearly labeled.
Summary: I purchased this motherboard because I needed a mATX motherboard that could fit into a new case I ordered. I had previously owned an older ATX P67 board which worked well. This board is overall pretty good. It has four memory slots, room for two graphics cards, and a fair number of USB ports on the back, along with plenty of USB headers on the board itself for expansion cards. What I don't like about this board is the overclocking support.
Summary: I have been a gigabyte fan for years. IMO, they build some of the best boards out there. This board has dual video card capability, and with the UFEI BIOS over-clocking is a breeze. Intel I-5, 16 gig Corsair extreme memory, and dual Nvidia cards, it has handled every game I have thrown at it like a champ!
Summary: Every couple of years I build a PC. A few years back I bought a gigabyte and it worked great, but I've always had a soft spot for Intel. This year I bought an Intel board. Bad move. The Intel board was defective. After all of the installation work I isolated a fault in the green board. I had to go through the hassle of returning it, etc. And I replaced it with this Gigabyte Micro ATX form - and it works great. USB 3 ports galore, integrated sound. Perfect fit.
Summary: I bought this motherboard as part of a rebuild of my HP-180T core i7 (LGA 1366) desktop, in which the motherboard had failed. I needed a Micro ATX LGA 1366 board, but it turns out nobody makes those anymore. I finally settled on this motherboard, and at the same time I sprung for a second generation (LGA 1155) core i7 CPU (another $300), since my first generation core i7 CPU would not fit in this board's socket.
Summary: the bio thing is easy to use but wish it had more setting to OC after you get use it it but it good still. Its running my I5k 2500 at 4.4 ghz and going strong still after more then a year which is really good since I thought it would melt or some thing (new to all this for the most part).
Summary: Tried three different sets of DDR3 memory for this board and it wouldn't work with any of them. So I buy the memory specified in the Gigabyte website, it does not work either. However when I install the memory pair incorrectly into the #2 (white) and #4 (blue) memory slots the board does boot up. Still waiting for a responce from Gigabyte. Gigabyte answered that the processor was not seated properly. I reseated the processor and everything started working normaly.
