The VRM indeed delivers quality, constant voltage at manageable heat levels. Overall, this board meets my needs. I have, however, been let down by its build quality. The retention clip on PCIE slot one cracked and fell off the board when I slotted my RTX 2080. Of the many issues that can crop up when building a new system, this was both unexpected and unique for me. I reached out to Gigabyte customer support in hopes they could just send me a new retention clip I could install. No such luck - the retention clip is not offered "to the general public." An RMA is my only option. Disassembling my system so I can send and await a replacement board is not really an option for me. Had the response been "sorry that happened - we'll overnight a replacement board with a return shipping box" I would have been quite pleased. The response I received was not what I expected for a board falling into the upper mid-range.
Lesson learned I guess.
Update: The release plastic pins at the slot 16x for graphics card is weak and they can break as one did; But if you are thoughfull and in my case I salvaged it, be aware that to release your graphics card you will need a long handled screw driver to push it down to release your graphics card...only real way to save the release pins. Bad design...but great motherboard. One more thing, in my previous computer I had to hold the delete key down to get into the BIOS, on this board you must tap the key to get into the BIOS. And it has a backup BIOS chip, and although you can not update it, it will allow you to restore the old BIOS, and then just update the BIOS and you back. It is a good thing. Also, be careful when upgrading motherboard with memory or other, you need to unplug the cord...because they use voltage on USB etc., and you can screw up stuff if you do not. I also noticed that my GTX 1080 SLI works better now and it does run 10 C cooler, which is really cool with better fps. And if you liked this review you will click the thumbs button.
Update 01-29-20 Motherboard is great. I have been updating bios now as it is easy with Q-bios. It is easy. I am running now on bios F10b.

To see if the bluetooth worked on motherboard And it did.
The VRMs have a great heatsink with a heatpipe, so VRMs stay cool. The board is heavy and well built. I returned an Asus Maximus XI Hero that had issues and got this instead. This board is a better value and has better power delivery. The only downside is the bios is a little bit less intuitive, but once you get everything set up it's not a big deal.
cpu mark score of 20352
cinebench r15 score of 1631 (stock got 1472)
Also getting 2 Mb/s more on WiFi download speeds with 50 Mb/s connection speed by using the on board antenna. Not sure what that's all about but it was a nice surprise.
if you want to get into the real technical details of this board watch buildzoid's videos on youtube.
all in all, gigabyte has the best VRM of the generation of boards, and the worst bios (not a big deal).
How's the board/bios compared to my previous experience with Asus? Well, my 9700k is clocked at 5.0ghz on every core, and it is sitting at 25-35c(using a kraken x62, and default paste as well) at side, and underload it NEVER goes above 65c. Pretty sure I hit the silicon lottery here(that's a first). The bios? It's fine. Is it an Asus bios? No, not at all. However, is it as bad as people make it out to be? Absolutely not, it's fairly easy and self explanatory. The RGB fusion works completely fine in my experience as well. So, overall I'm quite happy with my purchase.
Top international reviews
1. Cannot use more than 2 memory sticks (DRAM) and only in slots 0 and 1 even though there are four memory sticks slots on the motherboard and using only the two first slots (Instead of 0/2 or 1/3 for two sticks) provide only for single channel memory. Four sticks of the exact same size and manufacturer results in a reboot loop, same with two sticks other than in slots 0 and 1.
2. Cannot overclock the processor even using the Gigabyte Easytune utility because the system becomes unstable and reboots suddenly at frequent intervals.
I must still compliment the Gigabyte technical support staff for their quick and comprehensive response to the signaled problems. However, after I completed the tests they asked for they concluded that the motherboard was likely defective and I should return it and have it replaced.
I found this quite inconvenient since it would mean taking the whole computer apart once more and doing without a computer for at least a few weeks. Furthermore, I ran into a similar problem with a previous older model of motherboard from the same manufacturer. I’ll live with this one until I change (Normally within six months as I try to keep ahead of technology changes in PCs…) but it will not be from this manufacturer.
*Product does have on-board Wi-fi
I found the BIOS easy to use and the Gigabyte @Bios BIOS flash utility is particularly handy - it is Windows based and finds, downloads, and flashes the BIOS updates without the need to load the update on a flash drive.
The board posted right up with no issues. All memory sockets work. The only problem I had was with the onboard Realtek audio. The board has back panel connectors for audio output and input and an onboard connector for front panel headphone and mic connectors. Initially there was no sound output from the rear or front ports. Fooling with the drivers got the front working. Eventually I got both working. Then the rear ports stopped working. Playing with the drivers again I managed to get all ports to stop working. It appears that Windows 10 updates are breaking the Realtek drivers. I finally managed to get sound from both ports again by completely wiping all drivers (several times) and loading the Realtek drivers from the Gigabyte site (which don't give you access to a Realtek HD console but installing the console seems to break the driver). Based on internet searches, there seems to be a common problem with Win 10 and Realtek drivers, so it may not be an issue specific to this board. It is a major PITA however.
This is the first Gigabyte board I've used and overall I'm pleased with it.
only con is the cover to the plugs and the aorus rgb logo scratch insanely easy, don't take that plastic off till your 100% done building, or you will scratch it one way or another. hardly noticeable but its very easy to scratch the heck out of it.
La luz rgb está agradable, y la tarjeta se siente firme aunque creo que la pudieron haber hecho más resistente ya que se curvea ligeramente al momento de conectar pero nada de qué alarmarse
La bios es algo sencilla, lo cual te muestra lo necesario e indispensable, si valoras lo sencillo es perfecta porque te muestra lo que quieres ver y configurar de una manera rápida
Lo que no me gustó es que el empaque no trae sellos de seguridad y me llegó con un golpe en una esquina que alcanzó una conexión para sata, algo que no he probado aún si funciona
Muy buenos puertos M.2, las temperaturas que mantiene son buenas y el RGB es decente.
Update: Amazon was great and shipped out a new board over the weekend i got the new board put in and computer started up no problem. Lets see how long this board lasts
For anyone wondering, there is no difference between the Master and the Ultra, except that the Master has better VRM cooling.
Always been a fan or gigabyte on either amd or intel systems. Looks amazing also.
