Great board so far. For the price it was hard to beat considering all the options. Board was for a new build and wanted another Gigabyte board since my last one went almost 10 years without any problems. Everything installed fine, no problems. Soon as everything was up and running I flashed the BETA bios, which may fix some peoples problems. Also if you are running an SSD you have to make sure and set the bios to AHCI to get the maximum performance for it. Board has plenty of overclocking options, though they could be better, but then again this is a budget board. Had an issue overclocking my FX-8320, but finally figured out the problem. Even though the OC was stable I would always get a boot error. Well for some reason this board doesn't like it when you disable turbo core. I wasn't looking for much, just wanted the 8320 to run at 4ghz. What I had to do was leave turbo core enabled and set the CPU multiplier and turbo multiplier as the same. Now it boots normally and I have my 4ghz. Considering all the bad reviews I am only going to give 4 stars for now because I've only had the board for just over a month and want to wait and see if it is going to last. As with any electrical component/device, no matter who makes it, there is always the chance you are going to get a bad one.
My system:
Cooler master HAF 912 case
Corsair CX600 power supply
This board
AMD FX-8320 with Hyper Evo 212 OC'd 4ghz
8GB G.skill sniper ddr3 1866
Asus R9 280X 3GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD (boot & some games)
Seagate Momentus 7200 512GB HDD (storage)
9/11/14 Board is still going strong. No problems been running great. To help answer a question, I am uploading a video of Pics to show the main overclocking settings in the Bios. Note I am still running the beta F2h bios. Sorry used my phone camera for the pics, so not the greatest. Page wont let me add customer images.

When I was picking out parts for my build, one thing I wanted was a good motherboard, from a great company. When I asked around on forums and such, they recommended 2 brands to pick. Asus or Gigabyte. There were 2 boards from Asus that I didn't know which one to pick. The LE version didn't have as much heatsinks, so I worried if it would overheat a lot. It also didn't have USB 3, which my CM Storm Scout Advanced 2 did have. The other Asus one, was the complete opposite, it had everything I wanted. The only problem is it was $20 more than the LE. Then I saw this board. When I saw it, I knew I was going to get it. It had everything I wanted it, and it was at a reasonable price point.

-PROS-
+USB 3 compatibility
+Sata 6 gbs/s
+Supports Crossfire(2 Amd cards. 'm not 100% sure it does, but I'm pretty sure it does.)
+Nice Bios
+Color Scheme (maybe a con for someone else)
-CONS-
-It might be a bad design in my case or my powersupply, but it was difficult trying to put the 4 pin connector in the header which is located in the top left. I shouldn't be complaining, because some motherboards have the slot in the middle of the board. Since I'm not sure if its the board or not, I won't take points off.

At the end of the day, I love this board. it does everything I want it to, and I know I saved a couple of bucks going with this one instead of the Asus one.

My Config is:
3 WD Black Caviar drives 1TB each.
8GB DDR3 RAM
AMD Phenom x4 965 BE unlocked.
Windows 7 ultimate

The easy part was getting it all fixed. The board has ample room for a second fan despite having a large CPU cooler 3+1 drives.

The hard part was configuring the OS and drivers.

Gigabyte drivers from Website or from the DVD they give all made my HD extremely slow. The Average Disk Queue Length rose to 22.76 on average. SATA-3 problems i guess.

Ultimately, DriverMax came to my rescure and installed some working drivers which made the disks faster.

My boot time is now 45 seconds on average with a load that includes Acronis, Alcohol 120%, Trend Micro AV.

Apps launch much faster and the board overall never exceeds 40 Deg C despite running CoH 2 for a while.

USB 3 drivers from VIA are included and they, surprisingly, work. Average USB 3 speed is about 110MB/sec which is high.

Overall, the board looks good, but there's always a danger if it falling in performance randomly.
