I contacted Gigabyte Support about this piece of trash !!!!

I would highly recommend this board to anyone looking to do a build that is not a complete geek.

I purchased this board for a basic Hackintosh build. Overall, it has worked well for me. However, please note, for rev 1.1 of this board (which is the one that I received from Amazon) the on-board ethernet is not currently supported. However, my understanding is that an update is being worked on.

Bottom line: It works.

I upgraded from a core2 system to a new Ivy Bridge Core i5 3570K with this motherboard. System components include two 4GB DDR3 sticks, three SATA hard drves (one of which is a SSD), and one SSD CD Drive. That's all I need because everything else is built into the motherboard (or CPU). The most difficult part about my upgrade is plugging in all the connectors for my case's front panel, a pain because many of them are broken out into single pins. Thankfully Gigabyte does a great job with the manual identifying everything so the hard part is getting my fingers into place. Everything worked the first time!

My only complaint has nothing to do with this motherboard: the heatsink mounts changed ever so slightly from LGA 775's. It seems completely unnecessary, they're only about 1/8" different spacing, just enough that I can't use my old heatsink/fan.

I guess I could complain about the graphical BIOS, it's a bit clunky and I'd prefer a text based interface over this one's GUI... but how often do you have to edit BIOS settings? No big deal.

Got this board for my first Hackintosh. Only one setting in the BIOS needed changing off the bat, and the board is exceptionally stable. Can't beat Amazon's shipping speed, either. Board easily fits an EVGA GTX670FTW along with a TP-link Wireless-N card immediately beside it. Gigabit ethernet works great, and the BIOS setting for any XMP-enabled RAM should work fine as well. Works great with 16 gigs of Corsair Vengeance.

OF NOTE: there are only three system fan headers on this board, and the sysfan2 header runs at 5 volts. Any normal 12v fan will work, but it will only run ~500 RPM. It is really meant for a 4-pin power modulating fan. I'd recommend buying a couple molex-3pin adapters for other case fans.

The board does not have a speaker built into it - so if you need the tones to troubleshoot while you're building or booting, you'll want to buy one separately. Additionally, it does not come with a CMOS reset jumper. Simple enough to just disconnect power, take the CMOS battery out, and short the terminals of the CMOS jumper with a screwdriver or anything else that conducts.

TO GET ON-BOARD NETWORKING GOING LINUX MINT

The AR8161 is a very new combined Ethernet/Bluetooth controller and its driver alx is in the testing/QA process, so it's not in the kernel yet.
To build and install the driver:

We will download a recent compat-wireless-pc driver package, install build dependencies, select the AR8161 module alx, build and install it.

Type/paste the following, line-by-line, in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic linux-headers-`uname -r`
wget -O- [...] | tar -xj
cd compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc
./scripts/driver-select alx
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe alx

use http instead of Jttp....used that to try get around auto refusal of review because of url

TO GET SURROUND SOUND GOING ON LINUX MINT

amixer -c0 set "Channel Mode" "6ch"
alsactl store
restart pulseaudio server

Wouldn't recoginize my GTX 660, so I went to onboard video which worked fine. But then it wouldn't boot properly. That part is probably a lemon. But I've heard many reports of not recoginizing GPU's

Went with the MSI z77 G41 for 90 bucks and it has no issues.

ETA: I say in here that the reviewer who says you can't adjust cpu voltage is wrong-- I am totally wrong about that. You can adjust Vtt and PLL but not VCore. If this is a problem for you, yeah... not the board for you.

Okay, to get the obvious out of the way first-- there is NO IDE (40 pin) drive compatibility with this board. I would think that this doesn't need to be said, but if you end up wanting to run an old-but-still-usefully-large IDE drive, you might have to fork out a few bucks for a controller card-- might as well get some use out of one of those 1x PCI-E slots, right?

Everything went off without a hitch on this build. This is definitely more than I can say for my last AMD build with an FX-8120 for a friend. The board wanted to overvolt it by default and it took a couple hours to figure out why it was constantly overheating! Not intended as FUD, just a recent experience to contrast this build with. I didn't *have* to do any special tweaking to the bios to get everything functioning correctly, but hitting ctrl+f1 reveals some settings that, well, you probably shouldn't be fiddling with if you're a novice. After reading about how this board wasn't "overclocking friendly" and, IIRC, didn't have settings for adjusting voltage, etc. I was a little worried. But there they are. The settings are there.

What I like about this board and what primarily attracted me to it are the two PCI slots. I have a lot of older sound gear around and, well, probably could have used 3 PCI slots now that I'm having headaches with the onboard audio (more on that in a bit). Something else to keep in mind is that any modern gaming video card that takes up two slots is going to also eat one of those PCI-E 1x slots and really crowd the 2nd.
