Experience: 3 Years

works great


works great lots of ports
works great

Experience: 30 Days


Solid Construction
Great PCI Slot Spacing
Black finish looks awesome!
Bit overpriced perhaps
Ram slots are a bit close to cpu socket
All in all, I'm quite pleased with this board. Overclocked i5 2500k to 4.5 with ease. Black finish looks great through my side window. Gigabyte bios software isn't my favourite, but it's tolerable. Not sure this is worth 220, but if you can get it on sale, go for it!

Experience: 2 Weeks


Great OC mobo
Very well made
Not enough fan headers
Overclocked my 2500k to 4.8 easy on this mobo
SLI running 2 560ti's with great FPS compared to old 780i set up

Experience: 2 Months


- Not that expensive
- Great quality
- Great PCI setup for SLI
- Looks great compared to the usual baby-blue that Gigabyte uses
- Old fashioned BIOS, feels familiar
- Great for overclocking
- No UEFI (not that much of a cons)
One of the nice thing with this board is the PCI disposition for SLI/CF. The fact that there are 2 PCI-E1 between the 2 E16 allows the top card to have some breathing room, which you always want in such a setup.

This board is pretty neat when it comes to overclocking too. Sure you have to go through the classic bios, but once you get the hang of it, it is not a problem. Board is pretty stable so far, even though I am nowhere near being an extreme overclocker.

Most "mid-to-high-end" boards have similar features. Number of SATA 2 & 3 ports, USB 3.0, at least 2 PCI-E16 slots, 4 DIMMS slots, etc. A lot of boards now sport a UEFI bios, but this one still uses an AWARD one. Not really a cons to me since I'm used to the old-school bios and recent ones are quite good feature-wise.

All in all, this board is pretty neat and I would definitely purchase again.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Build quality
Very good price and value
None so far
So far, I love this motherboard.

Lots of connectors and features.
The quality of this motherboard amaze me.
I used to build computers for family and friends with ASUS motherboards, but from now on will use Gigabyte.

Very impressed!

Experience: 1 Weeks


Easy set-up
Virtu Technology
Smart6 features allow for quickboot and quickboost(overclock)
On/Off charge is handy
Black matte finish is great!
Overall well placement of PCI slots, RAM slots, Fan plugins...etc
BIOS was a bit confusing at first, Couldn't figure out how to enable AHCI
I am glad I upgraded from ASUS to Gigabyte. Much better construction and software. I will always prefer and recommend Gigabyte over ASUS now that I see what kind of products and software they offer.

ssd caching, visually a nice board, lots of connection options -usb, sata, esat, fire wire, etc and onboard video
a bit pricey, but compared to some of the cheaper alternatives, you can see where your money goes
I had a bit of trouble setting up the ssd caching, but once it was working, no worries. I like the onboard video. More flexibility. Nice power saving features. I usually buy the $100 mb's, but once in awhile I buy the $200 mb to see if there really is much of a difference - not disappointed. So using this mb with 2500k, 16gb ram, and software oc using the easytune6 utility which came with the mb, and a zalman hsf, runs stable at 4.3ghz.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Performant, solide et avec beaucoup de sortie..
Rien à redire
Facile d'installation, tout est bien indiqué sur la carte. Il y a beaucoup de sorties de tout genre. Je l'ai installé dans un boîtier Antec 300 (sku:.29812), avec un processeur i5-2500k (sku: 57962), mémoire G.Skill (sku:57953), carte vidéo Gigabyte HD 6870 (sku: 58226), refroidisseur liquide Coolit systems Eco (sku: 50327), Vertex 2 pour mon OS(sku: 53309), WD caviar black pour mon data(sku: 50895), deux ASUS DRW (sku: 49597) et un power supply Corsair 500w (sku: 60329). J'appuie sur power et 21sec plus tard, Win7 est démarré......

Experience: 3 Days


Fantastic layout and multitude of connectivity options; SATA ports laid out perfectly; super easy to overclock; dual BIOS; includes SLI bridge
(minor) has HDMI-out instead of DVI, could use a few extra right-angle SATA cables
This is one of the best Z68 boards out there right now. I upgraded from an EP45-UD3P and E5200 combo to this board w/ an i5 2500k. Install was super easy. The system was up and I was in Windows 7 in no time. Took all but 5 minutes to overclock my i5 up to 4.5GHz in the easy-to-navigate BIOS too.

Installed in a Corsair 600T w/ an H100 on the i5 and paired with 8GB of Vengeance 9-9-9-24 DDR3-1600 RAM. No issues whatsoever and passed POST the first time I turned the system on.

SATA ports layout is fantastic allowing easy cable routing and management. Onboard LED status lights are great for troubleshooting and the included software bundle is not only useful, but add even more value to the board.

As another reviewer mentioned, this is a good board for a hackint0sh which I will be dual-booting very soon!

Highly recommended for anyone looking to build a Sandy Bridge system right now.

Experience: 1 Weeks


Gigabyte is the premier mobo maker right now afaic, board looks sharp and runs cool, had great futureproof features like USB3.0 and SATA3, plenty of I/O, board is well laid out, great software package if thats something you would use, price is great for a board of this quality.
Not a con of the board, but rather this went on sale a week after I bought it.. not that I'm upset.. this board is worth every penny.
Paired with an I7 2600k and 8gb Patriot Viper Ram this board is sick.

Overclocked to 4.5 oob with no voltage change. Bios features and overclockability is a dream for a guy like me.. plenty of cpu and ram settings to really push your gear and max out performance.

This is the second gigabyte board I've bought in a row (moved from a EP45-UD4P with e8400) and I feel like Gigabyte for the price offers the best features and performance and durability out of the lot of them.

Love the style of the board, black pcb is great, layout of the board is good and runs cool even if you have a warm case.

Don't think twice about this board.. if you need a board that is fairly futureproofed the only board I would suggest above this one is the UD5 if you need the extra pci slots. I have also been reading that due to this board featuring dual bios it may be compatible with upcoming UEFI bios which would be a plus.

Enough talk.. lets overclock! 100 stars out of 5 :D

Features [ Edit | History ]


The GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 design features twice the copper for both the power and ground layers of the PCB, dramatically lowering system temperature by efficiently spreading heat from critical areas of the motherboard (such as the CPU power zone) throughout the entire PCB. GIGABYTE's Ultra Durable 3 also lowers the PCB impedance by 50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. A 2x Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for overclocking.
