I love this motherboard! It looks great and has been super solid! One thing I LOVE that Gigabyte is doing is including their g-connector that makes connecting the front panel connectors a breeze (even for someone with large hands!)
This motherboard is awesome the RGB lights are bright and are customizable. There are plenty of fan ports and has a lot of built in overclocking profiles. well worth the price.
This motherboard does the job it was designed for, will not buy another Gigabyte product due to their companies poor customer service has nothing to do with their products. The only issue I have encountered is their drivers sometimes conflict with other hardware in the system.
Update 2: So this MB killed another CPU, finally been offered a refund for it after 3 months. Won't be buying from Alza again or getting anything made by Gigabyte.
Update: This Motherboard has now died on me and fried my CPU. Avoid if you can. I won't be getting anything from Gigabyte again.
Really don't like Gigabytes BIOS or the software that comes with the board as it is very buggy at times, the Sabertooth Z170 I had from ASUS seemed all round a better board. Will be going ASUS again with my next one.
Love this board. It looks great and has managed to OC both my CPU and my RAM quite nicely. Board temps stay low. Picked it up for $95 refurbished, so I can't attest to if it's worth it at full price, but based on my experience unless it's priced quite high new ($160+) I'd say it's worth it. The only downside I see (and this is purely aesthetic) is the RGB is all or nothing as far as color. The gaming 7 has changeable light zones, whereas this has one large zone that has to be all one color. Not a big deal, but could be important to some.
I LOVE this motherboard! Second mother board I've ever owned, Has more than enough case fan headers and has never given me any problems at all. I have yet to do any OC on this board at all since its only ever seen the 7700 in it. It matches perfectly with the white 1060 6gb aesthetically. Only gripe i have about this board is the KILLER LAN connection is has. I have comcast with high speeds and have not noticed a difference between the regular ethernet port and the KILLER LAN port. Seems like a waste of marketing and space.
