Summary: The folks at Amazon rejected my first review which read "perfect transaction" but it seems they want fairly wordy feedback, which I might have provided if this were a work worthy of critical review and there was anything to say other than "it works and I'm happy.
Summary: Works perfect with my Hackintosh except for the wake and sleep function, plug and play for thunderbolt, and included wifi adapter. But, this a problem will all known mobo's used to build your Hackintosh. One day...
Summary: This is the first time I've bought a Gigabyte motherboard and I'm very impressed.. The bios is very easy to navigate and its very stable. I picked this one up instead of the Asus z77 v pro and Im glad that I did.
Pros: Motherboard is of very high quality. Overclocks CPU and RAM without effort. Runs much cooler than every motherboard I have owned. Overclocks CPU with lower voltages. Extremely Stable voltages.
Summary: I just love having a Mac Pro with thunderbolt before you could buy one. Just a heads up if you are thinking of using this as a hackintosh. I had to make the board boot legacy only in the bios to get things to work perfectly smooth.
Pros: USB 3.0 eSata Thunderbolt Hackintosh install was relatively smooth
Cons: Wifi/Bluetooth has to be activated in Windows before working in OSX, but if you are not using for OSX then you don't have to worry about that.
Pros: Very good board. I've got it quad booting OS X (hackintosh/customac) openSUSE, ubuntu 13.04, and Win 8. So far things couldn't have gone smoother. I've been using Gigabyte with all my computers at home recently, and I've been extremely impressed with their quality, reliability, and specifications...
Cons: I would say a con would be I probably should have bought a workstation board. I also think the colors are a bit funny. I'm not too big of a fan of blue on blue. Too be honest though, I think reviewing a motherboard that is in a solid case for it's looks is a bit silly. The UEFI is fine, the UEFI ...
Summary: Besides all the Pros, the board itself is pretty darn sexy. This was my first built PC, but I've been a tech for years and this MB looks and performs really well. I would recommend the NewEgg video to find out more.
Pros: Lots of fan connections. 32GB RAM Supported. Plenty of USB 3 connections. Easy to tweak the BIOS for over clocking, etc.
Cons: None that I can think of. Everything is fine on mine.
