4 out of 5 eggsWorked Great for While it Lasted

Pros: The motherboard did everything I could ask for. I built a mid level computer, low to mid level graphics card. I mostly used it for internet and average computer use with some gaming mixed in, Civ V and Crusader Kings II.

Cons: Died after about 3 years of usage. Don't really know what caused it to go out.

5 out of 5 eggsStill running strong

Pros: This thing is rock solid. OC'd a i7 970 (6-core) to 4.7GHz on air.
still has much more to give. supports 48GB of RAM

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this was running a 960 before, just upgraded to the 6-core last year. this thing flies. video encoding monster.

4 out of 5 eggsBeware of NB Fire Hazard

Pros: -Outstanding overclocker. bCLK > 200Mhz! QPI > 6.7
-Great SB RAID 10 support
-USB3 which I connected a 4-port USB3 exp. port to.
-i7 950 runs >4Ghz on air.
-I appreciate Gigabyte making a product which at least gives advanced, incremental warning of failure allowing me to order a replacement. Thank you.

Cons: -Long term overclocking leads to PCB degradation and potential fire hazard!
-NB heat sink unsatisfactory and should be replaced with aftermarket cooler.
-Requires installation in metal computer case, away from flammables.
-Trapped by i7 1366 architecture. No new consumer i7 1366 boards if this one fails. Requires $400 to replace CPU and boad if/when MB fails.

Other Thoughts: Well, I'm writing this review to add credence to the previous reviewer regarding the overheating and potential fire hazard of this board. I can confirm this issue.
I've run my board overclocked at bCLK=205 with Auto voltage settings since Day 1, two years ago. Two weeks ago my video started dropping out, going to black screen then coming back with the W7 error 'video display driver failure'. Recognizing this as an OC failure I investigated. Turns out the Auto voltage on the board had crept vCore up to 1.39v and the North Bridge was overheating causing video drop. I had to reduce OC-ing CPU and bCLK and drop vCore <1.35 to restore stability -mainly cool the NB. My CPU is a i7 950 and can handle the heat and volts. The limiter is the NB.

Over the last two weeks I've had to drop the bCLK by an avg. of 5Mhz/day to retain stability. Luckily the video is the first to go but I've also had Intel Matrix RAID report drive failure, requiring a RAID rebuild which I likely suspect is due to NB issues (yes I know SB controls RAID but SB I/Os are monitored via NB-based software). This has necessitated frequent timely Array Verification checks. Thank goodness I'm using RAID 10.

I've ordered two aftermarket chip coolers intending to replace the SB Gigabyte heatsink however this will not solve the underlying issue of board degradation nor will it restore my OC settings. It will only prolong the inevitable death of this board while providing modest restoration of OC. Currently the bCLK is at 170Mhz and the NB ~90C whereas it used to be ~70C at 205Mhz. So yes, this is a creeping firehazard for an unattended system imo.

Since the performance of the i7 1366s remains excellent there is little justification for spending $400 to go to a new platform. My solution to extending this one has been to order an OEM ASUS X58 i7 1366 Sabertooth for $110 from vendor of remanufactured equipment. Not looking forward to installing it without the (proprietary) case jumper connector, I/O backplate or driver CD but that's what it takes.

All in all a great board which is now, sadly, dying a slow death. At least it's not a quick death! Thanks Gigabyte. I will really miss this board when I have to replace it next week.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome board 2+ years still going strong

Pros: Great buy. Can run any OS, USB3 support, and ample supply of USB ports. Fast and reliable.

Cons: Some minor design errors Sata connector placement, card slots a little to close for my liking, but all around very solid. Had some USB3 support problems in OSX but that isn't a hardware problem it's a kext problem.

Other Thoughts: Most of the one egg reviews probably have never trouble shot a computer... coming from over 7 years of repairing and building machine I can safely say none of these kids saying DOA even know how to check for a short... just get a voltometer and check the board before you go badmouthing gigabyte for your incompetence.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Great for overclocking. Have had it for nearly 2 years (next month will be the 2 year mark).

Looks great and has everything I need.

Cons: Could be a problem with my RAM but it reads it at 1066 when it is supposed to be 1333. Either way, it will have little impact to my computer's current performance.

Other Thoughts: As a CS major.. I use this computer for compiling my programs, gaming, internet, and MS Word

2 year old build

i7-930 @3.8 ghz
6950 (upgraded from 5850... flashed the 6950 to 6970)
12GB RAM Mushkin Enhanced

5 out of 5 eggsSolid all the way

Pros: USB 3.0, socket 1366 tripple channel memory support. It's not only still fast after a year, but it's rock solid stable. Don't know how well it handles overclocking. But if it's stability you want for a budget get this. I don't know if there are any cpus still being sold for this, but if you get your hands on an intel 920 or 940 it will holds its own even today. I waited for a year to write this review because the last gigabyte motherboard I had gave some problems. Not with this one. Gigabyte is back!

Cons: No internal usb 3.0 connectors. When I bought this most boards didn't have any. That's about all I can think of.

Other Thoughts: This is a great motherboard for budget shoppers now trying to slide in on good performance and solid reliability for a cheaper price. yeah, you'll be getting slightly outdated technology with bloomfield processors, if they still exist, but if you find one that's cheap this is your board. So, this review is mainly just me tipping my hat off to gigabyte for a job well done a very nice board.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Board

Pros: Ran hard for 2 years now and I have had no problems with it. It is fast and dependable. Substantial performance at a modest price. I have ran Skyrim and Crysis 2 at the same time with this board and it never missed a lick.

Cons: I am sad that I don't have PCI Express 3.0, but that isn't the boards fault. I don't even think PCI Express 3.0 was on the market when I bought the board. Something to consider.

Other Thoughts: I have this mobo w/
Intel I7 960 - Quad-core at 3.8Ghz
24 Gigs, Latency 9, PC3-12800, Triple Channel
EVGA - 1 Gig - GDDR5 - GTX 460se
80 Gig Intel SSD

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: the CONs

Cons: DOA on 1st and 2nd Board. I still love Gigabyte, but this version for the LGA1366 isn't working out so well. Other reviews are having the same issue. Board does not boot at all. Don't know whats wrong with it.

Other Thoughts: My Gigabyte board for the LGA1155 works fine with no issue, guess I was just a unlucky customer who got a bad Board (2x).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as Expected

Pros: Worked out of the box.
Easy Install
Nice bios.
Gigabyte Sticker! :)

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: When you insert the gigabyte cd for the first time and you choose to install all the hardware drivers (chipset, audio, etc) I had to tell the USB 3.0 driver not to install. Instead I had to install it seperatly and had to right click setup and "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR". Then it worked great.
The first time I installed the USB 3.0 driver it frooze the PC up and USB3 ports did not work. Run as Administrator fixed it. Not a con just a brain fart on my part.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Works great, ports are working perfectly with all peripherals

Great space (size) and for the price it was amazing!
It was my first hardware build and worked right away like a charm

Have a Radeon HD5770 and works awesome! have 3 monitors installed and works like a charm! no lag...

Cons: - Having 2 video cards in the PCI slots is very inconvenient, because they don't both get powered equally

- Makes it very uncomfortable to add a hydrocooler (H70)

- If you want more than 3 monitors on your computer, adding a second PCIe video card will slow it down.

Other Thoughts: As a first build I recommend it completely, but for someone who already knows what he/she's doing, I would recommend paying just a bit more to get full PCIe card slots for those who want to add more than 3 monitors.
