Summary: This is a fantastic mobo! It has everything you need to run an Ivy bridge cpu, both crossfire and sli are supported and sata 3 connectors for speedy disk reads and writes. It also supports 32 gigs of memory and an onboard sata connector for msata memory card so you can save yourself some cables and the mess if you like. The 3d bios is also pretty awesome and makes configuring your rig easy and painless.
Summary: i bought this to replace my old elite group mother board and to make an upgrade, i just installed a intel i5 3570k, nvidia gtx 760, 8g DDR3 ram, 1TB WD HDD, turned it on and whoolaaaa!!! no issues at all, all components working amazing. this a must buy MOBO, and it's ultra durable, i always trust on this.
Summary: The best motherboard I have ever owned..I really like the mini pcie ssd slot that i have my samsung ssd in..it is fast..Only thing u may need to update your bios to the latest to get rid of the boot looping I used to be getting before..The dual bios feature is really great..It overclocks extremely easy with the Easy Tune Software.Love running it open case because of the onboard power switch...lights up nicely.
Summary: Finally finished piecing together my new PC and gave it some time to test it out. Most of my decision making was the result of reviews from here (Amazon) and forums on tomshardware.com. -NZXT Guardian 921 RB ATX Mid Tower Case, Black 921RB-001-BL -Intel Core i5-3570K -Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit -EVGA GeForce GTX760 SuperClocked w/ACX Cooler (02G-P4-2765-KR) -Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB (2x4 GB) (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B) -Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 (GA-Z77X-UD3H) -OCZ...
Summary: Overall is, I believe, one of the best cost/effective MB for an Intel processor all around. I've used in the past MSI, DFI, Asus and GigaByte motherboards and I still think the GigaByte is the best brand by far. My specs: Intel Core i5-3470 8GB RAM Corsair Vengeance PC3-12800 1600mHz Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H SanDisk Extreme SSD 240 OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W PSU Thermaltake Commander MS-1 case
Summary: this board works so well for the time i have had it! (over a year now) i had a ram stick go bad. it gave me the code why it wasn't working! my hard drive was corrupted on a windows install. it gave me a code and i was able to fix it! my heavy GPU (gigabyte 7970 Ghz edition) wasn't seated properly. it told me what was wrong i reseated it and everything worked perfectly!
Summary: Although discontinued, this was Gigabyte's best bang for the buck motherboard. Gigabyte is also consistently ranked, rated & reviewed by people who know better as one of the top or the top motherboard manufacturer(s).
Summary: Works great right out of the box. Had a memory issue with some brand new memory that I installed in it and was able to easily identify the problem with the on board debug message indicator on the top of the board. Very happy with it, have some replacement memory getting delivered today and will have this board running at 32GB of RAM. The NIC didn't get automatically recognized by ESXi server, but there is a driver patch, just takes some searching around.
Summary: Have been using this in my gaming PC build for the past eight months or so. It's a great board. I love that it has an ample amount of USB 3.0 ports. I have found that it resisted a short I had as well. I forgot to use a standoff in one location so it shorted against the case. Thankfully everything turned out fine.
