Fine sturdy motherboard, I was a bit rough with it during the installation, but didn't break anything, its definitely a good piece of equipment.

Excellent, rock-solid as promised.

A little small, but I can't complain. Nice price for a quality product. 10 dollar rebate, too!

The Gigabyte motherboard was a component which shaped the build in a way as I initially wanted to dual boot Mac OSX. Although plans have changed now due to fears of another system failure (my little heart probably could not handle another issue and panic attack like I had with the memory), I can still Hackintosh the build if I choose.

Does exactly what its supposed to do. The BIOS is a bit minimalistic and somewhat laggy/unresponsive for lack of a better word. However, it has the features I need and does what I need it to do. It only has 3 fan headers in addition to the CPU fan header as a word of caution. The board also had some very minor flex behind the CPU socket after installation of the stock Intel CPU cooler. Of note, the board is only Crossfire compatible (not SLI).

Note: this board was actually purchased for a dead ASRock H97M Pro4 board, which died on me after approximately 2 weeks of use. This board has shown no problems.

Great little board - automatic bios ordering so installing windows via USB was easy, driver installation gave no hitches, usb3 works by default

So far so good. I am very pleased with that board: 4 DDR3 slots, 32GB support, XMP support, LGA 1150, H97 chipset, 6 SATA III, effective fan control, 4 USB 3.0, HD sound. Lets see how many years it will last.

Excellent budget mainboard!!!

Basic mobo for standard features. USB 3.0 front header is useful as well.

Between this and B85M-D3H, I toss-coined the decision and went for this. The only key difference is between the SATA ports (in case I want to fill everything up) and not anything else. I also am a "fan" boy, so I chose the 2 boards that has the same amount of fan headers on the motherboard. Only downside I got is that the LAN port was dead so I went back to the store and replaced it within the day. Everything's running fine now

RAID support and Crossfire support, for the price it was too good to be true (at least where I lived). The motherboard is sturdy and the VRM/Chipset heatsinks are beautifully designed. My only complaint would be that of the ugly UEFI but other than that, great motherboard! Definitely recommended for people who want RAID but don't want to overclock.
