Works great and is long lasting

Pros: Has lasted a long time for me
Looks nice
Just functions as a motherboard should

Cons: After installing an M.2 SSD, more than half of my SATA ports stopped working. Whether this was intended or not I do not know but it did give me a nightmare figuring out which ports I could use for my remaining FIVE DRIVES.
Also, my graphics card extends right over the SATA ports making it nearly impossible to configure without removing the GPU.
Seems to now be relatively overpriced for what it has

nightmare for arrival to death 5 months later..

Pros: none! Would give it negative stars (eggs) if possible

Cons: odd size, misleading CPU compatibility, short life, poor support.

Other Thoughts: Nightmare started when board arrived and the CPU didn't work because it was gen 7. This requires a bios upgrade to use gen 7 cpu (skylake).. BUT.. you must have an old gen 6 cpu to upgrade bios.. so is this really compatible with gen 7 cpu? NOT REALLY. None of this was noted or mentioned when I purchased it, so I had to buy an older i3 just so I could use my i5 7600k. BIOS update is required to use Intel gen 7 (skylake) cpus, but you MUST have a older cpu to update. Board is a strange size, does not fit properly in standard ATX case layout (its about 10mm shorter than last screw hole pattern). Finally to top it all off it Died in less than 5 months. Of course it didn't just die, it started acting weird and just freeze. Took me a couple days to figure out it was either the MB or PSU, bought a new PSU and same issues continued. I bought a new MSI MB and went back to my old PSU and have been running solid issue free for almost 2 months since. I didn't have the memory (RAM) issues others had, I used 2 viper 8GB sticks in dual channel set up. Appears to have nice specs, and options for price but reading about this MB around the web sounds like this board dies within a year at least 50% of the time. AVOID!

not cheap when you buy an old CPU, additional PSU + spend 20+ hours troubleshooting a garbage board. I had a gigabyte MB for 7 years before this one issue free, after this experience gigabyte is at the bottom of my list way way at the bottom.

NOTE* never overclocked, modified and/or abused the board or any components, been building my own PCs since early 2000s I am not inexperienced or a novice.

Still working great, 14 months later!

Pros: - Cheap cheap cheap
- Dual M.2. I'm not using them, but I certainly plan to when I upgrade in the future
- Haven't had any stability problems at all. This thing is the backbone in my primary VR rig
- A bajillion USB ports on the back
- Goes nicely with an i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM. Don't believe that you need 29387423789 GB of RAM and an i7 for a powerful gaming rig.

Cons: - The onboard audio really sucks. I ended up buying an external USB Soundblaster so people could hear my mic on Discord. Didn't have this problem with my previous board's onboard audio.

Other Thoughts: I'll be honest, I fully intended to use this to build a cheap-o machine and replace it in a year or two, but I'm really not seeing much reason to upgrade the CPU or mobo beyond what I've got right now, even with heavy requirements like VR and 144hz gaming. I'll be holding onto this system for a while.

1/5 stars

Pros: It worked pretty well for around like 4-5 months.

Cons: unbelievably annoying issues with power connector from PSU to mobo. Every now and then it will crash and I have to take out the cable and plug it back in like 10 times before it will even power up again. I sent it in to gigabyte to get it fixed, they returned it saying it works, but it STILL CRASHES. (I have tested all other parts to see what was causing the crash and yes it is 100% the power connector from the PSU to the mobo, i even tried it with a different PSU and different cable.)

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend finding a different company to get your motherboard from.

Loved it until

Pros: I have had solid results with Gigabyte boards in the past. They have been my go to brand for the last several years based on price versus features and quality.

Cons: This build was for my daughter's use.... Had very light use, but after 4 months, won't power on--no lights, no status. This board was never stressed, never had a PCI card, no video card, no hard drive, just a bare bones SSD and memory. Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: This should represent a low probability failure mode based on use and cycles, yet several other reviews show this. the ULTRA DURABLE (TM) Motherboard they advertise on all sides of the box, IS NOT.

No issues

Pros: Bought this as a bundle with the i7 6700k. I read the reviews and was hesitant but said ***k it. Runs great and hasn't given me no issues. Turned on xmp profile for my dual channels ddr4 ram. Didn't touch anything else. Love it and has tons of options.

Cons: None at all
