Excellent Motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-Z97M-DS3H LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -Small Form Factor -Excellent BIOS features -Lots of Sata ports -Good for overclocking K-series processors

Cons: -A large GPU can cover up some sata ports, but this isn't a problem if you have a 90 degree connector -Only has one PCIe x 16 slot, but that's perfectly fine if you only want one GPU -Could use more fan connectors, but it's not too bad.

Insensitive to key-press

Pros: Cheap Lightweight LED backlit Looks cool

Cons: It can be difficult to type or play games on this keyboard due to how insensitive it is to key strokes. I'm typing this review on this keyboard right now and I've already had to go back and correct errors 11 times since it did not register my key strokes. Sometimes you need to both hold down the key and wiggle it to get it to register. I would not recommend to anyone due to this continuous hassle. I am currently looking for a new keyboard after 2 weeks of owning this one.

Good mobo, decent features, but not quite what I expected.

Pros: Good solid board, plenty of features for an inexpensive mATX at this price. Would recommend over other boards at the same price.

Cons: Was led to believe (not by any advertisement on gigabyte's part so no reduction in eggs) that this would work for low overclocks on unlocked chips via frequency multiplier adjustment. I just wanted to get maybe 3.8 or 4 GHz out of my g3258. However, this board struggles to keep that stable. I put the same chip on a friend's z97 gigabyte board and it was easily stable at 4.4 with 0.15 fewer volts. If you're thinking of getting a non-z board for any sort of overclocking, don't. If you only want to overclock by 0.4 or so GHz, just go for a different locked chip and then use this board.
