Pros: Great features packed into an mATX package at a decent price.
Cons: Gigabyte has been having some serious issues with all of their Z87 boards when it comes to filling all the RAM slots. I went round and round with their customer services with another Z87 board. They had me do all sorts of things that I didn't think necessary, and wasted about a week of my time. They insisted they've never heard of the issue with 4 sticks of RAM, but a quick google search will show you that this is definitely a well known issue. Fortunately for the oth...
Summary: Great motherboard. I do wish that the last PCI-e slot was 8x to allow spacing between SLI boards. The size is comfortable and the spacing is nice. good location of USB 3.0 (usually it is on the bottom).
Pros: I love this board so far! I haven't had any issues what so ever. Everything installed fined and it booted right up the first time! I love the colors, price and the form factor of this board. Not to mention that Gigabyte always builds solids products.
Pros: Gigabyte comes through with a great motherboard yet again ... A Z87 LGA1150 matched up with the latest 4th gen i7 processor is a nice combo (I went with a 4771 CPU). The Ultra Durable 5 features make this a sturdy board that can handle whatever you throw at it. Highly recommended Micro ATX board ... F5 is a good stable bios as well
Pros: First one failed installing the CPU. Replacement is fine out of the box.
Cons: On a Win7 install, it would not connect to the internet because the drivers that come with Win7 would not work with the onboard NIC. Using the driver disc that comes with the MB solved the problem. Once connected to the internet, of course, all the updated drivers are available.
Summary: Paired w/a i7-4770k, 2x8GB Patriot Viper 1600 DDR3 and this motherboard makes for a painless setup. (Just watch out for hods if you're frightened of the command line though as newer 4KB sector drives and the boot loader installer don't get along well, which requires re-doing the boatload manually via dd in a command line. It's easy to do, easy to screw, and some people are frightened of the command line, probably with good reason.
Pros: This is my second Z87MX-D3H board. (The first one I bricked though inexperience with overclocking and was completely my own stupidity). This board is otherwise rock solid and overclocks well (once you learn HOW to OC). I actually RMAed the board and gigabyte was great and I got the board completely fixed about 3 weeks later. In that time I got anxious and just bought another of the same board and I've been using this one ever since. Great overclocker, and the BIOS is ...
Cons: Doesn't support Crossfire (not that I need it) that I know of
Summary: This is a great motherboard. I used it in a hackintosh build and have had zero problems. The build quality is great, even down to the I/O panel. Mine is running an overclocked 4770k with 16gb corsair vengeance 1600mhz LP ram with zero issues.
