works great, lots of options
I had no problems with it so far

Room for slight overclock
DVI and HDMI on the rear IO! (Z68, to be expected)
No on-board USB 3.0 header
VRM cooler could stand to be a little bigger.
Feature packed board for the price, I picked up a spot cool to keep the VRM at a nice temperature, that is more an issue I have than the board. Considering this is a basic board that probably shouldn't be used for overclocking, the 2500K works smoothly at 4.5GHz.

The fan headers are not fully automated, only the obvious ones are. 2 4-pin fan headers obviously are (too bad I don't have another 4-pin to test with), but from what I can tell, no regulating the voltage on the other 2 3-pin headers. Considering the price point, that is probably expected.

Great quality board, lots of features for the price
no support for a case usb 3.0
A few things to note if your considering this board, is there is no USB3.0 on the board to connect to a case that has USB 3.0 ports. It does have the external 3.0 on the back, but I would much prefer to use the front case USB 3.0, but it will only run at 2.0 speed. Aside from the heatsink plug, theres only 2 3-pin case fan plugs on the board, and in odd locations for cable routing. Not a big deal, but slightly annoying if your particular about your cable management and have a lot of fans.

Otherwise, a great board...flawless setup, had no issues whatsoever getting everything up and running without even glancing at the manual. Everythings clear and easy to use.

Great Board for the price. Easy to work with.

Would buy it again

Good feature set
solid caps means durability
Overclocking is limited
Does the job, allows for a light OC, but not quite the high performer its more expensive brothers are.

Experience: 45 Days
-overclock friendly
-supports all the cool intel features
-overclocking makes the VRMs extremely warm
-no USB 3.0 internal headers
-color scheme is ... meh
This motherboard is, as the stars suggest, satisfactory.
If I could go back in time, I would have purchased a different z68 board.
As mentioned before, the VRMs get very hot with slight overclocking, but they handled the overclock of i5 2500k from 3.3 to 4.5 without a problem
The blue/white color scheme of gigabyte is only mediocre; would have preferred a matt black pcb.
DIMM slots could be further from the CPU slot, but have not faced any clearance issues

This motherboard supports duo graphics with either a PCI/PCI-express x1 soundcard. Exactly what I needed for my build.

- Lots of great features.
- Great overclocking potential.
- Fast loading times and post times.
- Absolutely no boot loop (not a pro but its not a con so..)
- Great expandability.
- Well-built and sturdy.
- Chipset has 2 Coolers built in.
- Dual Bios.
- 22nm CPU support.
- Hybrid EFI support.
- No Base Vcore
- No manual PLL voltage control.
The Z68A-D3H-B3 is firstly a great motherboard. It seems Revision 1.3 got rid of the boot loop problems and features a more stable bios. No boot loops here. This thing is loaded with features that you see on higher end boards. I especially like the SPDIF digital audio jack on the back. People who say this board isn't good for overclocking because it doesn't have a base Vcore adjustment need to read up on some guides. I myself have an i5-2500k and what you need to do with this and similar intel processors is turn LLC (Load Line Calibration) to Level 2 and then turn Dynamic VCore (Voltage Offset) to +0.05-0.1 depending on the processor. This should allow you to maintain a stable overclock of 30% or more. On my 2500k i have it at 4.7ghz stable and it could go further with more voltage...stock cooler. This board has 3 Pci-express 3.0 slots, and 2 Pci Express 2.0 slots. The 3x3.0 slots are Pci express x16(x16/x4/x8) and both the 2.0 slots are x1. Supporting both crossfireX and SLI you can drop  in a couple graphics cards and be on your way. Dual bios helps reset bios when overclocking fails, a flash fails or bios corrupts and the board supports 22nm processor for future upgrades... Unfortunately not having a vcore setting makes overclocking not as effective and perhaps a little mroe challenging, but this doesn't have much effect at all. You also cannot manually control PLL voltage and there is an automated overvoltage setting in the bios.

Many BIOS feature
Little cheap quality build
My first Gigabytes mobo. Seems ok, all features are good but i didnt need. Some software have cool option for easy OC. Stable mobo. At 120$ its a good price.

Good features for the price
Considering the price of the board I am quite happy with the features. SLI supported and has "some" play room with OC'ing.

I used this board to slap together a gaming rig with some cheap kingston ram and a big video card. It is working great =)
