After trying to clean off a 1cm square section in the lower corner with rubbing alcohol, I realized whatever it was, wasn't going to come off that easily. So I just threw caution into the wind and connected it up.
Came on in a single try. No tweaking needed... and the Bios... OMG THE BIOS... I love the GUI for the Bios. it is extremely user-friendly with its options. And I especially love the Hardware Explorer that shows you literally every device that's plugged into the board.
I would definitely recommend this board for anyone looking to upgrade.
EDIT: I have changed my original ratings and dropped it from 5 to 3 stars
After a couple weeks I've noticed a few random B.S.O.D. "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I was worried it was my RAM since this is the most common cause. Changed the RAM to low profile ones and ran the PC. Got a B.S.O.D. within 36hrs. After running a CrashDump analyzer, it showed that a file "e22w7x64.sys" for the "Killer e2200 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller" was causing all the B.SO.D. I've been getting (22 in 4 weeks).
I decided to Google just the "e22w7x64.sys" filename and all the results returned were about B.S.O.D. crashes. Apparently the drivers that ship with this board is not compatible with 64bit versions of Windows.
The motherboard, however is excellent. But it's the annoying B.S.O.D I cannot get accustomed to.
Cons: the usb3.0 front panel port is facing to the side of the mobo instead of straight up, this caused problems for me during my install cause the cable was unable to bend, after some working around i finally got it in, just some consideration for those with mid-small ATX cases, I/O panel is a bit goofy
Other thoughts: I was very pleased with the speed and quality that was delivered, I just had to RMA my gigabyte board to newegg because the sound card was DOA, my RMA was denied due to physical damage to cpu socket pins I did not cause, I complained that I had returned it without damage (installed correctly, it posted and ran video games, removed correctly, did not see bent pins, carefully placed plastic cover back on too), newegg gave me a 50% refund, and said when the pics come in 1-3 days, they can give me a full refund. it has been 8 days, and counting. thank god i amazon primed this board. <3 amazon
I was happy to see my previous slower (1333 MHz) DDR3 ram worked great in this mobo, paired with a new Haswell I5-4670k. I was also able to place the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cpu cooler/fan easily on this board, and even easily access the DIMM slots after installing the stupid-large fan+radiator. Haven't tried overclocking, but figure I will down the road - hence the giant fans. I'll upgrade the ram before trying.
The motherboard was sturdy and had minimal (no appreciable) flex when installing the support bracket for the fan, or when attaching to the standoffs inside the case.
The risers on the board were all in good places (for CPU fans, system fans, case-usb ports, speaker/led/power/reset switches, etc. The connectors for peripherals all felt sturdy - remember to remove the dust-covers before trying to jam them through the EFI shield. The mechanical fasteners for the PCI-e and DIMM inserts were smooth and solid.
The bios is a big jump up from the earlier paradigm, and adjusting boot sequence (to do a fresh install of the OS from DVD) was trivial. The controls for variable fan-speed control are excellent, and seem to have smart defaults too. My system is silent in normal use and very quiet when gaming. No decibel meter, so just qualitative data, but impressed with the speed control setup regardless.Read more ›
