Summary: Always been a fan of Gigabyte. Solid and Stable performer. I love the HD BIOS with mouse. With my Delidded 4770K and GF770 this mobo rocks. Only complaint is that the time keeps resetting to pacific time randomly on reboot, maybe something with the dual BIOS i haven't looked into yet but it gets annoying to have to go into the BIOS to keep adjusting the time, all other setting are kept. Other then that this is a good board for the price.
Summary: This was the motherboard I used to build my gaming PC. I'm no expert, but I am happy with the quality. It can easily fit two high-end graphics cards if you really want to. There is also plenty of space for Ram. If you need more than the 8GB recommended for gaming PCs, you can easily add more. It's been about a year, and it's still running strong. What I really liked about it is the troubleshooting display. It will show codes to represent the board's status.
Summary: I used this as my mobo for my first hackintosh build with Mavericks. Everything worked great, no issues at all. I was reading reviews about issues and problems, but mine came clean: it looks solid and sturdy and everything was packaged nicely. All ports are working great.

Summary: 2 of the DIMMs were bad, wouldnt even post when DIMMs 2 and 4 were filled. with 2 sticks in, id get BSODs everywhere. doing a simple google search on the board and i find that MULTIPLE people have had this issue. returned it unfortunately.
Summary: I read a lot of people giving bad reviews about this coming DOA. I ignored it thinking it would not happen to me. It came DOA and ruined my entire build. Also for some reason would not fit properly in my Full case...
Summary: I've been only using this for a couple of days, but it is working great. Things popped into place quickly and I was up and running in no time. The onboard video is actually really decent, so I might delay my purchase of a video card. I'm very pleased with how easy it was to set up, and how fast my system is. There were a few things I learned along the way that can save you a few steps.
