It's a great motherboard. Just wish it had more SATA cables. I have to stick with 2 drives.
Only 2 sata cables other than that awesome board to work with.
I haven't experienced any major problems so far. One issue that probably was my fault is that the I/O shield doesn't line up with the ports perfectly. Might just be my case. It's a good motherboard for my needs, and has some red LEDs that I didn't know about until I turned it on...
This I had the most trouble choosing. I was originally looking at a Z170/Z270, but my cousin (who's super tech-y) recommended an H170 so I went with this Gigabyte one, after a long debate (AKA I had no idea and just listened to him LOL). I ordered this from Newegg, and realized it was $20 cheaper at Memory Express but it was too late because it was sold by an 'independent seller' and blah blah w/e. It was pretty hard to find and TBH I think I could've went with something better. However, it works fine, has some sick audio lights but only 3 case fan ports so that's why I had to get the splitter. Dual Channel memory, 2 PCIE slots for SLI/Crossfire to your hearts content.
The only complaint is that it came with 2 SATA cables, but they were different! One was flat on both ends, and the other was flat on one side and L-shaped on the other, which did not fit at all at first. Thank god I was able to make this work in my case, but with a bit of a stretch.
This motherboard is the very glue that holds me to my love of full sized hardware. While yes, a smaller, cooler PC would be nice, I prefer to have as much expansion room as possible. With the ability to Crossfire AMD graphics cards, a ton of SATA ports and subtle red LEDs, this motherboard is one of my favorite all-around-ers.
