I did end up returning the board since I had a 4-stick RAM kit.
Cons - non-standard board size (smaller than standard ATX) which causes screws at the edge of the board to have no home in my case. Terrible interface in BIOS for overclocking, it took me ages to figure it out and it's down right confusing compared to my last build on an MSI board and I consider myself at least mid skill level tech on system building.
All in all, happy but not over the moon. It would be 5 stars for sure if the board was standard size and the BIOS interface was written by an expert on UI instead of some semi-retired AS/400 programmer. If you know what that is, you know what I mean! :)

Performance wise: Rocks it.
Stability: Rocks it.
Everything was great until I recently started paying for internet service that was rated at 300mbps. This is when I found out Gigabyte lied about the capabilities of the onboard NIC. I have the Arris 6190 modem and Netgear R6400 with CAT6 cables but I had to buy a separate gigabit NIC to use the capabilities of my ISP and modem. I've been purchasing Gigabyte products since the ATI 5850 and haven't been disappointed until this lie. I think I'll be looking elsewhere for my hardware.
So far it works fine. Would be good if the 1st RAM slot a bit further from CPU.
My CM EVO 212 fan touches my RAM if I put it in the 1st slot. So I move it to the next slot.
