Experience: 4 Weeks
Switched from ASUS
RBG Lighting almost everywhere
Very easy to use BIOS
CPU Upgrade auto overclocking
Flat black PCB
Steel armor on PCIe 16 slots
Lowest GHz for auto overclocking is 4.2
Mouse movement in BIOS is limited, but the keyboard works better for the BIOS
I switched from an ASUS board thinking it was causing my GPU to emit coil whine under heavy load. However that wasn't the case so now I am stuck with this board which I am happy with. After hearing about horror stories about ASUS RMA and customer support, I think i will stick with Gigabyte, EVGA, and MSI from now on.
