Pros

- Great mobo, with a great value.
- Amazing for OCing
Cons
- has a few problems with G.Skill RAM. That can be worked around. That is it.
Summary
I have had it for over 6 months and has not let me done. Great for OCing my E7400 to 4.0Ghz. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. Will definitely buy more Gigabyte mobos in the future, just won't buy G.Skill RAM with it. Looks nice and performs amazingly.

Great mobo and great value mobo
Cons

Summary
This is a fantastic board for the price and its ability to OC. It included alot of extras. Running it with a Q9550 at 4.0G

Pros

Lots of Features
Board Layout
Price
O/C Ability
Lots of Sata/USB
Cons
Gigabyte Customer Service
G-skill Ram Compatibility
Xfire only 8x
Summary
Great motherboard loaded with features at a good price. That said my first board I received had faulty onboard audio, but I shrugged it off and just used my Audigy 2, after 3 months the board died on me and had to RMA. This process and experience with Gigabytes customer service was a nightmare and took just about a month to finally get my board replaced.
A warning to any one in Canada buying gigabyte products they only have one repair service for all of North America and that's in CA, USA and they have a slow processing. Also when I finally did get the replacement board back Gigabyte couldn't be bothered to label the parcel properly as a RMA and they placed a value on it and I was taxed and hit with customs fees which I have not gotten a refund for yet.
Gigabytes customer service is dreadful, though the board it self is nice and a good value. It O/C well and nice high bus support, lots of Sata and one biggy is board layout it is one of the better designs in this price range for large video cards like my GTX 280.
Another thing to note for G-skill RAM (1066) users like my self. This board doesn't seem to fully support this brand, I get stability problems in some games no mater what the speed setting (I even under clocked a fair bit), various voltage including the 2.1v which is suggested. Gigabyte says there is known problems with G-Skill memory especially if your using 8GB (I use 4GB). I replaced it with some older OCZ and the stability problems were resolved, so unfortunately this has put me in the market for some more ram again.

6 Phase
Crossfire
Cons
JMICRON
Summary
WoW that THE board i wanted for servals years it have plenty of everything i need and could want!

6 Phase hold ez my D805 2.66 Oced to (3.6 e1.4v <<--more than 150W consumption)
Crossfire onboard gonna worth it well ;)


JMICRON! man problems when using the JMicron on IDE Drives ...
You must use the Stock IDE Microsoft drivers if you want your IDE DVD/CD drive working. <<<-- The only weakness!

Pros

Amazing Overclocking
Dual Gigabit LAN
Cons
None that I've noticed.
Summary
I currently own to of these boards, one with a 4.25GHz E8500 1.36v, and the other with a 4GHz Q9550 1.3v. I can say that it is the easiest board I've ever overclocked with by far after having assembled PCs with around 6 different 775 motherboards. I would recommend this motherboard to anyone in a heartbeat.

Pros

Packed with features, super easy to overclock, BIOS layout easy to understand, great extras, good included software for beginner overclockers
Cons
None I can think of
Summary
This is a fantastic board for the price. The included extras are great and I love how an ESATA bracket is included.

The BIOS is super easy to understand even without reading the manual. I paired this with 4GB of 1066MHz DDR2 RAM and an Intel E5200. I overclocked my E5200 from 2.5GHz to 3.33GHz in no time at all. This after coming from an old DFI LANParty and an AMD Opteron is amazing and considering I knew little about the recent Intel chips after having been with AMD for a while.

The BIOS makes it really easy to overclock and is packed full of features. This motherboard is the best purchase I've made in a while. Pair this with a 4870 and an E5200 (overclocked of course) for a fantastic gaming PC.

Pros

Features, price
Cons
none
Summary
Excellent Mobo. I am never going ASUS again if this is what Gigabyte standard is like. So many options, and features, and it's only a mid-range! that price just can't be beat too. Only owned it for a couple of days, but i can tell I made the right choice. After my old ASUS crashed and burned, I picked this one because of the glowing reviews, and I do not regret my choice

Pros

Cool colour scheme, VERY good overclocking, not a doosh to 45nm quads, easy to use BIOS, seems very sturdy, reasonable price
Cons
none!
Summary
This is a very reasonably priced motherboard and one of the best bang for your buck products I could think of. I would definately buy it again. It overclocks my q9550 like a champ got it to 4ghz at 1.3375vcore on the first try. people with 45nm quads should not hesitate to buy this motherboard. TOTALLY WORTH IT!

Experience: 3 Weeks

Pros

Clean interface
Dual bios
Xfire capable
Comes with Easy Tuner 6
Cons
None!
Summary
Bought this mobo for my first rig and I have to say that I'm pretty much satisfied with the buy!

The interface is pretty neat as it doesn't cause clutter at a certain part of the mobo when connecting all the wires.

The dual bios capability is also a nice bonus! (When your bios get corrupt, you have a back-up bios to boot up to)

and most of all, Easy Tuner 6 is a good software for basic overclocking to those who are new to the OC scene. It has a one button OC for easy OCing (not the perfect setting for OC but it can do!)

This motherboard is a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone needing one!

Pros

Great overclocker. The board is well laid out and there was no issues with connections. 1394a header.
Cons
I've found nothing lacking in this motherboard but did have issues navigating the M.I.T initially. People say DFI has a complicated BIOS but I found it easier than Gigabyte's.
Summary
Didn't need a new motherboard but just knew that I wasn't getting everything that I could from my q9550. This board certainly showed that! I could get to 3.7GHz using my previous DFI DK P35-T2RS but easly achieved 4GHz with almost the same voltage. Once I get a real case that has proper airflow, I'm sure I'll be able to achieve even more.

Coupled with my new Dark Knight I'm looking forward to pressing the GA-EP45-UD3P to its max
