Experience: 6 Months


Solid design, cool running Mobo, lots of USB ports, Dual Lan, pretty much typical LGA1366 layout.
LGA1366 Socket design can be troublesome if your not very careful.
Bought this baby on sakle to replace a failing Asus board.

Price of the Gigabyte boards makes then an easy favourite, along with the multitude of ports, and features. I easily rank this board over the more expense ASUS offerings,

my only issue (and more to the LGA1366 socket no Gigatbyte per say) is the extreme delicate socket design, which seems to be prone to bent pins which equals no warranty.

So be very careful with the installation of the CPU and if you find you start getting randon BSOD's check the socket carefully, hopefully you can bend any damaged pins.

Experience: 1 Months


-nice bios layout
-1366 motherboard
-able to overclock i7 920 to 4.2ghz with reasonable volts
-wish it was cheaper
Nice motherboard, first time building a computer. Fit in my antec 1200 case easily. Overclocking the i7 920 was easy with this board.

Experience: 3 Months


- Great Layout
- High Quality Build
- Great BIOS Support
- Wonderful Overclocking
- Colour Scheme
I bought this board to replace a Intel Smackover DX58SO. This board is much much better than the DX58SO. The BIOS is much much better and is constantly updated. This board overclocks great, I can get my FSB up to about 212 in the BIOS before I cannot boot into windows. It does 3 Way SLI or CrossFire, a gamers dream. It is also of very high quality. I would recommend this board to any other I7 owners out there.

Experience: 2 Months


-Good Looking
-6 slots for ddr3 ram well needed because the 3 gig sticks have not come out yet
-Price is way to expensive
-Not enough room between the express x16 slots
This is a good board i would but again but the price is just a little to much and there is not enough room between the express x16 graphecs slots my gpu covers one of the expanshion card slots and i cand put a nother gpu in the 2nd express x16 slot i do have a huge graphecs card but still should not covers 2 slots. I like how there is 6 slots for ddr3 ram but i only jave 3x2 gig sticks of ram other wse good board and looks great with my gamers case

Experience: 10 Days


Cannot say that there are any strengths.
DOA - Board would not boot under any conditions - would get power but never post.
Simply put, this board was DOA. At first, thought it was the default bios version and my CPU - replaced my CPU from D0 to C0 - turns out it was not. Tried multiple power, CPU's, removed everything systematically, checked for bent pins... nothing. This is REALLY hard for me now, I have to RMA.

Experience: 80 Days


Easy RAID0 Setup using onboard fakeraid controller
squeaking noice when c1e enhanced halt state
this was a good board for us with an easy raid0 setup for a little extra performance. high quality board for one of our i7 systems.
we noticed some squeaking noise coming from our speakers so we had to turn off c1e enhanced halt state in the bios. i guess the voltage regulators or coils are emi-noisy or something when the power draw changes.

Firestorm ZERO
Experience: 7 Days


- tons of features
- lots of SATA
- price
A great performance motherboard. Tons of features. Great placement for like SATA (right angles) and 3 PCIe and the chipset heatsink is flat to fit them. Only weird thing is the Clear CMOS button is on the back. Might accidentally push it when putting the USB. Didn't had the "cold boot" issue or the noise issue, I been hearing about in forums.

Experience: 6 Days


tons of features
dual pci-e x16 (plus an extra pci-e x8)
dual ethernet
very high quality manufacturing
absolutely none
awesome. if you can aford it, buy it because it is soo worth it. mobo temps are amazingly low compared to my old p5q-pro

Experience: 2 Months


Lower price than comparably spec'ed motherboards
Squealing/whining noise
Purchased this motherboard due to the awesome number of features compared to other motherboards in its categories (asus p6t deluxe v2 is something i heavily considered). Many reviewers rated this board highly and I agree.

My one complaint is that it makes some squealing/whining noise at stock speeds, but that went away when i overclocked to 3.2 GHz on my i7 920

Experience: 60 Days


price, performance
This is one of the best motherboard you can buy. Perfomance wise this board is easily comparable with the Evga Classified and the Asus Rampage at a fraction of the price. If you don't mind the colors, get this board.
