This motherboard looks and performs good, I just wish the BIOS wasn't absolute trash.
A ton of headers and cable connections.
Has customizable RGB, but the software is pretty bad.
(Subjective) Looks good.
Thoughts: Good motherboard, would definitely recommend for practical use, not really for RGB. General aesthetics is pretty good though with an IO Shroud.
A feature rich, playfully colourful board that has exactly everything I needed.
Despite what people say about their software, gigabyte makes some damn good hardware. However, the only software that has given me issues is RGB Fusion 2.0 and I have managed to fix or find suitable workarounds to all of my issues so far. I did have some minor problems with wiring with Gigabyte having unique 5V ARGB headers to MSI, AZROCK and ASUS. But I found out that there is actually no compatibility issues so I just used the MSI, AZROCK, ASUS 5V ARGB header and RGB Fusion still syncs up with them.
A side note, I would have gone with a the PRO WIFI, however I already own a PCI Wireless card, so I used that instead.
Lets my 9900k OC to 5 GHz stable with no prior OC knowledge. Gigabyte BIOS a bit buggy though, at the time I write this AVX offset applies always. Lack of PS/2 port and way to switch BIOS slot puzzling. Was tricky to figure out how to install M2 drives from the manual.
