This motherboard was chosen because of it's excellent reviews, size, and features list. The Gigabyte GA-z97n-WIFI combines good performance and technology with a competitive price.
Great ITX board. Has all the features you want, without all the excess. Main thing I love are the 2x 1Gbps ethernet ports, makes this great for a server, VM, workstation build
Good board, and the on board graphic support isn't too bad either, runs basic stuff really well. Have yet to experiment with all the options, it has many.
The WiFi antenna seems a bit naff but has a magnet built in so it stick to the case.
Had no issues with drivers and windows 10, used the ones that came with the disc, ( didnt bother with the wifi and bluetooth ones as already working fine)
The wifi on this board is much better than expected. It was one of the least expensive mini-ITX boards when I got it and I the reviews seemed pretty good. The fan header placement is a little awkward with the CPU cooler installed, but all around this board is very good for the price.
Great! The built-in wifi is a definite plus. Also, the bios is pretty advanced and intuitive.
The Gigabyte Z97N-WIFI board has plenty of features should I decide to start overclocking. The biggest disappointment is there seems to be a very long time between power on and POST. I'm talking about 10-20seconds of just... nothing. WTH? (I have even flashed with the latest BIOS.) Once POST starts, Windows 7 boots in a few seconds - thanks in large part to the Samsung 850 Pro SSD. Speaking of which, the motherboard came with two SATA cables (1 90deg, 1 straight) which saved me another (small) purchase.
Everything you could ask for in an m-ITX board. I love it. And pretty cheap too.
This is a really great motherboard.
This motherboard is pretty small, I’m used to bigger ones, I had to flash it to the newest version cause of problems with the Broadwell CPU but it was ezpz. Works as advertised, I will be trying overclocking in a couple of years tho, for now I don’t really need that much power. I WILL absolutely change the CPU cooler, looking at the Silverstone TD03 slim right now because the stock cooler is shiet, I don’t like the temps on my case.
Bought it for the looks and the wifi. No need for a Z-board but the features are very good.
