Experience: 5 Days

Pros

Quick to post, very good BIOS adjustments
Crossfire ability
Cons
Bad spot for firewire connector
Cannot change stock CPU adapter
Summary
Great motherboard, gace me an error message when I didn't plug my vid card into power.
Posted fast and BIOS is easy to adjust for voltage and FSB.
Got a AM2+ cooler in the NCIX bundle(AC Silencer 64 TC) but did not fit with the stock adapter on the board and I could not change to the new adapter as it was 2 posts and the board has the four post connection, which meant I would have had to screw two holes. Went with the AC Alpine 64 and all is fine.

The firewire connector is in the lower left so I could not connect it to the top of the case. But there is still one on the back.

Experience: 3 Months

Pros

Price + Dual Bios + Manufacture Software
Cons
SB and 8x 2nd PCIE instead of 16x. Mine Broke.
Summary
I used this board for just over a month, then when I put in the new 9950, something went wrong. I sent my cpu back but it was fine. I guess something gave up on the board when it got the beast cpu, thats now what I had hoped for to say the least. I think they will replace it, in the mean time I havent had a computer in a month =(

Pros

Nice layout. Very reliable.
Cons
None.
Summary
I ran an Athlon 5000+ Black Edition CPU in this mobo for 10 months OC'd to 3.2Ghz. I just recently swapped it out for a 125W Phenom 9950 and I've had it for about a week now. I have it OC'd to 3.2Ghz also. I applied some ram sinks to the mosfets because of the horror stories I read about this board catching on fire. It's all good so far.

Experience: 1 Weeks

Pros

ready for crossfireX (max two video cards)
Cons
heatsinks, RAID controller does not seam to work along with SATA DVD drive (driver issue?)
Summary
I wanted a AM2+ board that would give me the possibility to use crossfire. At the same time I'm not sure I will actually use it, so a board with the 790x chip made sense (instead of 790fx). I can't say my experience is very positive up to now. I built a RAID array to install windows vista on. It worked, but now EACH and every time I insert a CD/DVD, I get a blue screen!!! This looks like a driver issue, but after a few days, I still didn't get any reply from Gigabyte support about that. It is my first Gigabyte board and because of this slow response, I think it will be my last. I get another blue screen when I go in hibernation. While this seams to be related to the driver for my wireless internet, I didn't had this problem with my older board.
Other than that, it seams to work fine. I tried some overclocking, but I'm new to that, so I can't comment a lot.
