Summary: As expected, there is a learning curve as the board requires some bench time to become efficient (or rather, for you to become proficient) at operating it. From a regular end user perspective, there are a couple of minor set up issues around the new App Center.

Conclusion: When I interviewed Jackson Hsu (Product Manager at GIGABYTE) at Computex this year, he explained that one of his proudest recent achievements was the sales figures for the Z87X-OC, with the first production run being sold out (to distributors) before launch.
