Easy setup, BIOS upgrades, overclocking, and great durability

Pros: I am surprised to see so many complaints about this board. I've never had a problem with mine, despite lots of tweaking, etc (thanks to hackintosh'ing). This board has made me a gigabyte fan -- I don't plan to ever buy another motherboard brand. Great price and build quality.
Cons: I did have to reset the CMOS once, but I'm pretty sure this was just thanks to my own stupidity when trying to max out my OC.
Ok board. I still don't get the bios on this thing.

Summary: The bios was "interesting". Took me a week to get it running right. I got it cause it was hackintosh compatible but I never did. I just did a Virtual Machine on it instead. Gaming is pretty solid on it.
Durable, stable, easy to work on. Gigabyte is perferred.

Summary: Have an old Gigabyte MB. It was wonderful. I built it in 2008. Just starting having problems. Not sure if it is The MB...suspect the power supply, but after 7 years it's time to get a new one. Love the modern CMOS/BIOS Downloads.....compared to the old ones. Time to build a new one.
Cons: Nightmare - it initially booted up fine, but it didn't support all my hardware out of the box. A BIOS update would supposedly fix it. Wouldn't post after the BIOS update....first time in 15 years I've actually seen a BIOS flash go bad. It's supposed to be unbrickable - yea that's not the case. Al...
Stay away! Horrible products and service every time!!!

Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out.
Summary: I wish I had read the reviews here at New Egg on this board, but since it was GIGABYTE I never dreamed I would regret this purchase. Their reputation used to be tarnish free. BIG MISTAKE. MANY REGRETS. TOO MUCH WORK AND MONEY!!!
Pros: None that I can think of. No product should be praised for doing what it is supposed to do. And since this board does not, it's a good thing they no longer manufacture it.
Cons: Gigabyte has been leading me around letting me think that I did something wrong or had an incompatible part. Right out of the box this board messed up like a bad driver that grew into multiple BSODs since I build it in April 2014. I just filed for an RMA and hope they give me a new other model. T...
