The overclocking software is not working correctly with my Xeon E3 1231V3 chip
Summary
Worked as expected with one glitch.
Would buy again
Not sure why the easy tune overclocking software won't work as advertised. Reloaded from site as well as from disk, no joy.

Rock Solid Board Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Quality board, Stable, easy to overclock!
Cons
None

I have always been an Asus fan, and this board runs every bit as good. 100% stable overclocking my i5 3.4ghz to 4.3 without any sweat at all. Definitely recommend!

None that I could think of

Great motherboard Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Very well built
Red LED makes is hard to miss when you enter the room
5 Fan connectors
M.2
Cons
Having trouble to stream at Very High from my Xbox one to this gaming machine. I have to play with the Killer NIC drivers a bit.
Summary
Be aware that you need the drivers handy even with a fresh install of W10 Ann Up. The LAN by example was not detected by Windows and I needed the freaking CD. That was not happening with my previous board.

None

Great design and very premium feel. The bios is very straight forward to use. Have this paired this up with a i5-4690k and able to have a stable 4.5 OC on it at 1.22 core voltage.

Pros

High quality product for it's price range, M.2 slot, slick bios
Cons
Not a fault of the product itself but mail in rebates are the work of the devil
Summary
Used in my first ground up build. Couldn't have been easier to get up and running. Has all the compatibility anyone could ask for when working with a limited budget. Gigabyte has yet to fail me :)

Pros

It's built solid and runs like a dream in I'm happy that it's such a solid motherboard the colors are something from a different world the red and black fall together well. If I was to recommend a motherboard it would have to be this one
Cons
The data bridge could he built different
Summary
AMAZING

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

Decent value.
M.2 slot.
No PCI slots.
Higher end onboard audio.
Cons
Killer NIC
SATA Express port
Summary
It was the least expensive board with an M.2 port that was available. Turned out alright. The Killer NIC can be a good or bad thing. Don't really care too much. SATA Express is just useless, no future there. Had some problems getting it booted initially. The BIOS was a bit finicky at first with what RAM was compatible. Worked out alright in the end.
