+ Very Stable!
+ Has a lot of features normally found only on ATX sized boards
- Expensive for a small board
- Bunch of caps near CPU socket, might block aftermarket coolers
Let me start off by saying that normally I don't buy mATX boards for my main computer, but I just bought a Silverstone Tek Micro-ATX Mini-DTX, Mini-ITX Mid Tower Computer Case with Aluminum Front Panel and Steel Body TJ08B-E - Black and I couldn't fit my existing P8P67 Pro. Since my old board was the B2 revision with the SATA bug, I figured it was time to ditch the board anyways and purchase a new one. Out of all the boards I looked at, only the Sniper M3 and the Asus MAXIMUS V GENE Z77 mATX DDR3 Intel LGA 1155 Motherboard seemed worthwhile for enthusiasts and gamers (I didn't want to lose too many features going from ATX to mATX).
I haven't really tried to push the overclocks on this board very far, but I can say that it easily hangs in there with the P8P67 (I have my i5-2500k running at 4.4GHz just like before). I don't benchmark that much, but the numbers are around the same as before (maybe slightly better, but within the per-run variance). The RAM was detected better on the M3 than my previous board, and in general it seems like this board is much more stable (I haven't had a single lockup or BSOD, whereas I would get one a couple times a month on the P8P67).Read more ›
Had a BSOD problem that took a while to troubleshoot but turned out to be a bad stick of memory. The board seems rock solid after memory RMA. I've been an ASUS fan in the past but got this board for significantly less than the ASUS equivalent and the ASUS reviews were all over the place.
Only significant problem I had with my build (TJ08B-E case) was that the USB3 cable for the front panel of the case is very stiff and the socket for it on the MB sits right under the HDD cage. The HDD case hits it and wants to bend it. Maybe I could get some kind of extension cable, because I'm a bit worried it will bend the header.
If you're using a large CPU cooler you'll want low profile memory (ie no big heat sink fins that stick up) but I think that would be true of any micro-ATX board.
OK, I went from this configuration:

I bought this MATX thinking it had the Killer NIC on it, its confusing because its larger sibling has it - otherwise, the board is packed full of features and runs incredibly well.Published on February 25, 2013 by LeftclicK
There's not much that I can say that hasnt been said in other reviews.
It is simply reliable. Overclocked my Intel I7 2700k to 4.9Ghz Gyeah!
You can search on the net and see lots of customers complain about the issue.
I'd give 4 stars, BUT I'm a bit depressed that Gigabyte's representative on the net CS didn't... Read more
