Summary: No complications. Board just works and works great. BIOS is very nice. Haven't overclocked yet with it but that will be soon to come. Also I enjoy the ability to turn on the computer from the board when working on it.
Summary: I don't overclock, but rather bought this system for a file server. Having 4 PCI-E 8x or 16x slots is an uncommon feature in desktop boards, and server boards tend to cost hundreds more (and which usually don't work with CPU video.) This board was solidly built, a relatively clean layout, and was easy to get running in the inexpensive server case I bought (Rosewill RSV-L4500.

Summary: The entire line-up of Gigabyte Boards are NOT for enthusiasts who want good fan control and Gigabyte software doesn't work with windows 8 or 8.1 ONLY the 1 white fan header supports PWM which is not the industry standard. Even older motherboards usually have 2-3 PWM channels. Almost all of Gigabyte's boards have a single PWM fan header and the rest are the old traditional voltage controlled (even though they have 4-pins).
Summary: I bough this motherboard with the 4770k, and I was skeptical buying this, because it was cheap. I guess you get what you pay for, and it is a fine motherboard, but I had a few issues with it, which made it a 2 star review. I had voltage issues with the CPU, and considering its a OC motherboard, I expected something better. The motherboard would give it less voltage than it actually states, so I would have to give it more.
Summary: Love the orange theme. The bios is full-featured and easy enough to use, but not idiot-proof. Plenty of slots and USB 3.0 ports. Enough bandwidth for top-of-the-line anything. I couldn't ever tell without delicate testing that the audio card is not the best.
Summary: Motherboard was dead on arrival. looked up other reviews on other websites (newegg) and it seems this board has quality issues. sending back for replacement motherboard. good thing for Amazon's customer service for returns (thank you "Abby"). Hopefully this next board will not be buggy or haVE ANY PROBLEMS.
