Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


from completed build Mighty Midget

I got tired of ASUS motherboards, 3 horrible times I tried them 3 times I have had huge issues.. back to good ol Gigabyte, I woudl recommend this board or the gaming 3 even

from completed build Team Canada, Going for Gold

Good board stable and a lot of value for the price. Software makes it better for beginners who want to dabble in overclocking but not have to do much thinking. slightly smaller than regular ATX size.

from completed build The Event Horizon

I have used this for my first build, and considering my lack of experience building computers, I'd say I was pretty rough with it. Despite all that, the motherboard continues to hold the components together and run flawlessly. The BIOS layout is quite intuitive as well.

from completed build Gaming Machine

Awesome motherboard, I must agree that it is very sturdy and durable. There is LED displays that are a savior when trying to troubleshoot problems. I have owned it for a year and have had no issues.

from completed build i7s-gtx980-modest

I prefer my BIOS interface to be minimalistic in design but powerful in options, so the GUI-based version on this feels a bit superfluous. However, it does have some lovely features such as realtime data on the fans and cooling, internal documentation on features, and does also offer a "just-give-me-mah-settings" mode, so I really can't complain. It did set my RAM to conservative (underclocked) speeds by default, but this was trivial to adjust. Had the right mix of features for the price.

from completed build The Particle Accelerator

Great motherboard, except I had a hard time getting this board to be fixed in the case, as it is smaller than a normal ATX size, but bigger than a micro ATX size.

from completed build Mid-Range PC

Great board includes great features and BIOS. Only downside is two of my 4 ram slots came dead so I cannot do quad channel.

from completed build Carbon Fiber Define S Build

Honestly, bought this puppy solely for SLI compatability as well as M.2 support. Haven't had any issues with it, great overclocker, and sexy as can be.
