This is a great motherboard. The build quality is much better than most mobos I've worked with and that's not surprising given that it's in their Ultra Durable series.

I'm using it in a new i5-2500k build that's intended for overclocking. I set it up in no time at all and I'm taking advantage of almost all of the features it has to offer: Intel SRT, USB 3.0 and Lucidlogix Virtu. I've got 16GB RAM in there, 2 optical drives, 2 RAID-1 HDs fronted by an SSD, and an additional hard drive and SATA hotswap dock. Sounds crazy but I which I had a couple more SATA (3 or 6) ports.

There were some nice surprises as well. Gigabyte's got this great feature called ON/OFF charge that let's you charge devices through one USB port even if the system is in hibernate (S4) or off (S5). It also provides more power to the port and Gigabyte says that it'll cut charging time by up to 40%. Doesn't seem like a big deal but I'd often leave my computer on just to charge a device which is really lazy and a waste of power. Now I don't do that anymore.

Another nice little feature is Gigabyte's Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) which really does work. I'll let anyone interested read about it on Gigabyte's site rather than repeat everything.

A few things I didn't like are the edge mounted sata ports which (in combination with my case - Antec Sonata III) makes it really, really tough to get cables in there. I also which they had included a USB 3.0 header cable like some other manufactures since they're really hard to find.

Overall though it's a purchase I'm very happy with and don't regret.

The first motherboard I ordered failed within 3 days after attempting to use their EasyTune6 software. I talked to Gigabyte tech support and I was told the motherboard was bad. Now, after about 2 weeks the replacement motherboard has failed from a simple computer restart. In both instances the PC failed to even make POST. I know Gigabyte makes quality products but I cannot recommend this particular motherboard and have asked for a refund.

EDIT:
After viewing another 1 star review of this motherboard, I have found out that this seems to be a problem unofficially known as "boot loop." It's just getting stuck in an endless boot sequence. Some users have been able to remedy it, some haven't. Googling "Gigabyte Z68 Boot Loop" and you will find all the information you need to know.

When I say solid, I really have two meanings. First, the motherboard is of a heavy construction; in essence, no flex. Install your GPU, and the board doesn't go up and down like a trampoline. The second is of more importance. The Z68 really works. The software allows non-bios adjustments to the CPU (in my case a i7-2600K) and to the memory. The Gigabyte is a little fiddly regarding the front-of-case wiring, but the performance makes that easy to overlook.

The board is easy to install (again the goes back to the heavy construction), has all the features of more expensive MBs, and is from a reputable company. It also will save you roughly fifty bucks from comparable boards from other manufacturers. I should mention that my original build used a Asus P8P67 board which arrived with a bad chipset, and enough flex to become worry-some when I installed a pair of MSI 560s. I have no idea why Asus feels that a light-weight board is necessary. I don't care if the thing weighs 20 pounds as long as it's works and does not feel like it could break in two.

It's your choice, but I doubt if you could go wrong using the board.

I built three computers using this motherboard. One of the three failed within the first month, I returned it to Amazon for a replacement. After installing the replacement, I googled "Gigabyte Z68 Boot Loop" and found that many others were having this same problem. So I thought I'd be smart and buy another as a backup just in case...Well not much later, the second of the 3 computers started exhibiting the same symptom. No problemo, I thought. I will just install the backup motherboard I bought for just this case! Well, I installed it and it has the same problem right out of the box! Luckily, Amazon is graciously allowing me to return it for a refund. In the meantime, I ordered the Intel version of this motherboard and installed it replacing the Gigabyte motherboard and it booted up flawlessly. The Intel motherboard may not be as sexy as the Gigabyte one but it just works and at this point that's all that matters. I will stick with Intel motherboards from now on...

So the bottom line for me is that 3 out of 5 of these have failed for me so far. I am fully expecting the other two to fail in the near future at which time I will get another Intel motherboard and finally be done with Gigabyte motherboards...forever!

I purchased this motherboard for my custom build. I am using it with a i5 2500k 3.3 Ghz processor. I love the look of the board and it has a great sound card built in. When the time comes, this board will be of great use to overclock (I just don't need to do it now). The BIOS is easy to use and makes things simple.

I'm a very tech savvy guy and have always built/upgraded my own computers. I read tons of positive things about this board and chose it for my next build as I'm moving into the Sandy Bridge era. I was a tiny bit hesitant however because I've had some issues with Gigabyte products in the past, but after tearing down my entire previous build and building this one... I realized that I should have trusted my gut. Using the same working hardware from my last build, this board would not run for more than about 5 seconds before powering off. My 750 watt psu is more than capable of powering anything that I throw at it, so I knew that wasn't the issue. I removed the board from the case and placed it on cardboard to ensure there weren't any grounding issues, and that didn't work. I checked and rechecked any and all power connections and/or cables that I could find. I tried moving my ram around and checked each stick in the single slots, and that didn't help. I even tried booting with ONLY a video card connected and couldn't get anything more than a few seconds of fans spinning before a depressing shutdown. I put those same components back into my previous Nvidia 790i Ultra Sli mobo and everything booted up just fine. Amazon's service is amazing as usual, but between the other DOA ratings I've seen here and from the countless online posts about the
"Gigabyte Boot Loop" issues with their current gen boards, I can't give this hardware anything more than 1 star. I would say that this was a rare occurrence, but it's not my first time dealing with Gigabyte mobo issues, and other people are having the exact same issues... I would recommend another company like Asus... as that's where I'm heading now. Hope this helps!
