Not an expert but it was fun to build and it's fun to use.

Summary: I have assembled a few PCs over the years and this was the easiest and so far appears to be the best. I don't overclock---I don't really "game" too often and when I do it's cheesy stuff like WOW, but I wanted a "gaming rig" of sorts and by plugging other electronics into this board, I got it. Of course I neglected to apply for the $100 rebate....

Summary: INFO: This board has the sturdiness and weight of slate rock! Although the board is stated as an Extended ATX, it's width is really only 1.5" wider then standard ATX boards and as such, it can seemingly fit inside a Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX case. Gigabytes states this is great/OK if you can fit the board inside a mid-size case, which is common with today's cases.
Summary: From Amazon Top of the range motherboard excellent for Intel ivy bridge and sandy bridge. Good value for money. If you are into overclocking then this is the board to go for. I don't personally overclock but I like to buy top end board.
Summary: Ich habe mir dieses board kürzlich günstig erstanden,und muss sagen es is ein geniales board. es hat sofort alles erkannt und die einstell möglichkeiten sind einfach fenomenal. ( OC etc. ) Aktuell benutze ich ein I7 2600K das mit 4.7 GHZ pro kern läuft. und es ist noch luft noch oben !!!
