Great Motherboard

Dave A., Newegg
17 June 2013
  • Summary: Check to see if your big aftermarket heatsink will fit (somehow) . If it does this motherboard is great buy it.
  • Pros: This motherboard is great! Easy to install and it doesn't look like a generic motherboard because of the way its painted.
  • Cons: The only Complaint I have is that the ram slots are closer to the cpu socket than on other motherboards. This can cause issues with aftermarket heat sinks. A big heat sink could cover up a ram slot or two. I stuck with the stock Intel fan that came with my i5 3570k and it is fine. I will Probably...

great hardware

Umesha W., Newegg
28 May 2013
  • Pros: - usb3, crossfire support, 4 mem slots, raid (in other words everything I wanted) - solid performance - felt sturdy when installing - uefi bios is pretty nice
  • Cons: gigabyte has godawful software, horrible website for driver downloads and the easytune software can't run while their other software is running. So sorry, but supporting your hardware is part of the package and this cost you an egg.

Nice Motherboard

Sher Y., Newegg
10 May 2013
  • Summary: If installing aftermarket fan coolers, be sure to watch out for RAM stick clearance - suggest buying lowprofile sticks. Otherwise, stock CPU fans and other watercoolers should be no problem.
  • Pros: Lots of USB 3.0 ports, SATA ports, and easy BIOS configurations. Very sturdy PCB and spacious to work with.
  • Cons: Wish this board included Wifi but no biggie.

Solid mobo

Anonymous, Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: Overall this is a solid board, could have easily achieved a 5 but the negatives for me bring this to a 4. If gigabyte had spent a little more time making the bios more open ended and with more options this elevate the board to a 5.
  • Pros: Uefi bios, built in bios flash utility, 6 sata ports, solid construction, good audio from onboard, good cooling design
  • Cons: the bios refused to detect the left and right movement of steelseries sensei, (just within the bios) this was not my primary mouse so it was a non issue for me, gigabyte does not seem to have a whole lot of development on there bios for this motherboard as there are only 2 updates on the website,...

Great MB, will not run PCIe 2.0 Video card in 16x slot

Eduard G., Newegg
13 March 2013
  • Pros: Features, OC stability and layout is great. Once you apply the right settings there is no vcore drop at all. I primed for a while with I5@4.8 and vcore was rock solid.
  • Cons: Does not support all video cards. My old gtx 460 would not run in 16x pcie slot and not in 8x slot ether. Only runs in 3d pcie slot at 4x which slows the card quite a bit. Since 16x slot is pcie 3.0 it should be backward compattible with pcie 2.0 cards. Never had an Asus board do that on me. Now ...

  • Excerpt: Объективно о недостатках.
  • Pros: Плюсы__Dual bios - для простых юзеров точно плюс. Если чего "накрылось" или "доигрался" - не надо никакого "с возможностью аварийного восстановления" или в сервис нестись - клацнул тумблером и всё норм
  • Cons: Видимых визуально два: текстолит в районе задних портов выгнут дугой (не всё ж ASRock с MSI отгребать); плохой окрас (лакировка) тыльной стороны матери (разводы)

  • Excerpt: Объективно о недостатках. Биос заколдованным кажется. Корсаровская память на 1866 МГц - стала по умолчаниям на 1333 МГц. Попытался выставить на 1600 МГц -- полный ноль пока ХМР профиль памяти не активировал. Активировал -- сразу предлагает номинальные 1866 МГц задействовать, пропуская 1600!
