Gigabyte's DualBIOS feature (which I was unaware of until this day) saved my butt the other day when I made a dumb mistake trying to overclock and couldn't boot because of a machine check error. So I fiddled with the switches and I accidentally switched to the backup BIOS and was able to boot up on default settings. I downloaded a fresh BIOS from Gigabyte and then re-flashed the main BIOS. If it weren't for that feature though, I would've been without a computer for a while, so kudos to them for that great feature.
I don't have any criticisms for this board. It has served me well for two years now. I am giving it four stars because $300 seems to be a little bit too much.
This mobo was introduced to me as being a mobo that is affordable and dependable, though i can't say affordable anymore since this cost around $200 now ( I bought it for around $80 new way back). I was pleased with the fan headers it had and the Dual bios; My mobo had an error one time that made the OS not boot, thank god for the Dual bios! This also has USB 3 Headers and ports which is awesome! Bios menu is really easy to navigate.
Though it is a great mobo there are some things that just ended up failing, such as some fan headers and the whole motherboard itself, my first one lasted for over 3 years which i am happy with, gave me enough time to purchase it again. Another thing is that this mobo had some problem with Windows 10, well still has actually. The Mobo's programs that came with it(or Downloaded from their website) just don't seem to work properly on windows 10, everything worked fine when i had Windows 7. Same thing for graphic cards, i had to flash my bios to get mine to work which was a Radeon HD8790, Some functions had an error for doing this but overall it got fixed manually.
Good board to start with, too bad about the price range now though.
