It's a MOBO. It works fine and BIOS aren't too hard to use.
Has everything you could possibly need and build to last
I wished the heatsinks were solidly secured. They're held in place with push-pins which are kind of flimsy. Also the motherboard extends further a few inches from the motherboard stand-offs so the board flexes a good amount when pushing in the front USB3 panel header. I'm only a couple of days into use so I cannot comment further. I'm new to UEFI Bios as well.
Gigabyte quality. For the i7 4790K processor it defaulted to 1.27 volts that is high for that processor but this is a common problem with most motherboards and that processor. Very simple fix for me since I was going to overclock anyhow. i7 4790K @ 4.6GHz @ 1.22 volts.
Had all of the functions I needed. M.2 slot, many PCI-E slots (but only 1 1x slot?), support for 3-way SLI, and overclocks quite well. The only reason it has 4 stars is because it only has 1 PCI-E 1x slot.
Great Z97 motherboard for the price. Did some weird stuff when ultra fast fast boot was enabled (had to actually clear the CMOS to even get into the bios after enabling ultra fast fast boot), but other than that, works great. Has all the features you would expect of a mid-grade Z97 board. Would recommend again if you could find one for a good price.
Good motherboard for the price. Considering it's only ~$110 and has a M.2 slot, and supports both AMD's Crossfire and NVidia's SLI.
Looks awesome, build quality is high. BIOS is very easy to use and looks amazing. OC made easy or you manually OC.
