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. Stay away and go with MSI, Asus, and ASRock. Much more reliable for current times. We have dropped GB as a product supplier from our entire business.
Summary: As others have mentioned this board has major problems with 4 sticks of RAM. I originally ran a 2x4GB configuration for several months without any major issues. I decided recently to add another 2x4GB of the exact same RAM to my system, and immediately started getting consistent BSoD.
Summary: Good board for the money. I've never had an issue with gigabyte boards. Honestly though there mini itx board comes with more features for around the same amount (wifi, dual gbe) you just have one pcie x16
Summary: I've owned this board since July 2013 and have had no problems until I installed the Gigabyte motherboard utilities just now so I could upgrade the BIOS from the delivered version F8 to F9. The BIOS upgraded OK, but the keyboard stopped working in the USB port it was in, closest to the PS2 connector. PS2 keyboards still work, and USB keyboards still work but only when they're connected to a USB3 port on the rear panel.
Summary: I built a MAC Hackitosh with this board and it worked right out of the box. Using the Tonymac86 tools and a legal copy of OSX was really easy. This board has been running great since the install. I'm a real big fan of Gigabyte boards.
