Comments, Questions & Reviews:
Fantastic motherboard by Jules
This well priced feature rich motherboard is everything you could possibly hope for. As one of the cheaper Z77 motherboards it really doesn't skimp out on anything. It has support for SLI and CrossFireX for avid gamers, 4 USB3 ports as well as internal header ports on the board. It has as many PCI-E slots as you will ever need, plenty of SATA III and II connectors, Intel smart cache technology for SSD enthusiasts and dual channel memory support (up to 32GB).
It also boasts plenty of nice touches such as 4 connectors for extra fans, a physical power and reset button, and comes with a little mic for testing your build works.
The performance of this board is great with lots of over-clocking potential and great CPU speeds. The 3D BIOS does the job whilst also offering some nice unique features and Gigabyte's driver software does a good job of updating everything in quick fuss-free fashion. As a bonus, if you were thinking of building a hackintosh, I can confirm that this board is fully compatible with OS X (multibeast).
I really cannot find anything to fault this board or anything that it could possibly be missing out on. At this price it is a no-brainer.
Final verdict: if you are upgrading to or buying an Ivy Bridge processor, get this motherboard!
