Easy to work with full ATX motherboard. Front panel headers are clearly labelled and color-coded to make installation quick and easy. Provides more than enough ports for storage and USB2/3 connections.

from completed build First Build - $1329.72 CAD!

Only complaint is the 2 PCI ports for my GPU's are not both x16. They run at x16 x4 instead of x8 x8, so performance is affected a bit.

from completed build Sweet Dee - Budgeter's Dream

As easy to install as any motherboard can be and without any issues so far. I had originally intended to go with an ASUS 990x motherboard but eventually just couldn't justify spending twice as much. This model had the highest average reviews and necessary features of all the similar boards offered by Gigabyte. I held out on buying this one for the longest while watching and waiting every day for a slightly better price but ended up settling for the $10 rebate.

from completed build Runescape HD welfare gaming build

Powerful, diverse customization, 10/100/1000 LAN built in, overkill number of USB ports. Installation for a first timer was no problem at all. If you don't know anything about computers you might not have the same experience, however.

Not disappointed so far! Good quality for what I was looking for, and I am already using it again for another build that you can check out on my page!. Gigabyte hasn't let me down for anything yet!

from completed build The Slosher

Great motherboard for me , has everything I require like usb 3.0.I would like to overclock soon.

from completed build First Custom Gaming Build

An excellent amount of available inputs from the rear panel, numerous and very well labeled ports throughout. Only issue is that the color-coding of some portions isn't the same as the color-coding from my case, but clear labels and the enclosed instruction manual made that easily overcome.
