from completed build Mediocre Equilibrium

Fully functional, I've had no issues with it at all. However it is not a standard-sized ATX board. It is narrower and sacrifices the right-most standoff screws that standard ATX boards have. Due to this, the board flexes and makes it difficult to plug in headers and the 24-pin ATX power cable on the right side of the board. Additionally, due to the narrower board and sacrificed space on the right side, the front audio port is on the very bottom left of the board, so it might not reach on cases with relatively short headers.

from completed build First Build Gaming/ Fun

Good mobo, wish It had a few more fan ports but oh well. With the option to do SLI and a nice HD BIOS I really like it. The BIOS does have some visual bugs though, and weird splash screens prevent super fast boots. Would recommend to a friend however.

from completed build Little Red

: The Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI was the cheapest bundle board I could get that had a quite good reviews. It is more than sufficient, and I’ve had zero problems with it.

I wanted a no-frills super functional board......might not look as lavish as the other gaming boards out there but take in mind that you have the ability to overclock AND SLI at this price range, I'll take one please

The specs on the board are great for entry-level builds. It's on the lower end of SLI capabilities but all in all supposed to be fine. Now my personal experience with the board was horrid: boot looping, not detecting SATA drives intermittently, undervoltage shut down of system (even if that's a feature of intel chips).

from completed build Project Blue

A perfect Motherboard from gigabyte , in matter of Cost and Features , it offers everything in high-end motherboard in a cheaper price , with great overclocking capabilities

I got it mainly for the overclocking ability and the red/black aesthetic, as well as the ATX form factor. This is the perfect motherboard for me, and the stability feature is very reassuring for me.
