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.

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.

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.

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.

I like to keep my reviews short and sweet so please let me know if this was helpfull.

This Motherboard when coupled with the right hardware is a real screaming deal! Literaly such a good price and so much to offer.

Pros : Great compact size, not exactly MicroATX but very close it is atx but less width.
Has all the connections the average and some power users need!
Looks beautifull I LOVE BLUE!
The 3d bios is really too futureistic for some but i really love it, its like playing a video game. It is very informative and easy to use in my opinon.
Overclocks well.
Comes with 3 yr Warranty wich is as good as it gets with motherboards, that i know of.
Supports USB 3.0 really well, i can get 137 MBs to and from my rosewill enclosure.
Did i mention it makes coffee?????

Cons: If you even touch the thing without ESD wriststrap on good luck turning it on. Easy to damage in a sense, I had to RMA the first of 2 boards. I am very cautious when i set up systems and somehow wether my doing or not ended up with DOA board and my only conclusion was either ESD or came broken. AMAZON honered the RMA thhough.
For what you get compaired to other boards its a great buy but if broken down feature to feature it should be around 80 dollars. I know this wont change for awhile and it comes at a premium but common give the people what they want!
Other than that i cant think of any, know what you need and want before your purchase. This board has only one PCIe 16x slot and the other is x4 so beware. It is a budget board afterall.

That is all i have i will update as neccesarry. Thanks for reading. SPACESHIP Z77 BLUEBIRD AWAY!!!!!!
