Does everything you need a motherboard to do, however I would've preferred two system fan headers. I used a splitter, but I can see how someone might run into a bit of a hassle without any splitters or adapters to connect a second fan.
Definitely a good motherboard. I think the Bios interface could be a bit more straight forward yet again it does have an "easy mode". Overall its good product
It's not my favorite board ever. Placement of the SYS fan header is way off in the corner by the I/O shield, and there's only one of them. The x16 slot is in the top position, placing backplate-equipped GPUs extremely close to the DIMM latches, enough so that they won't fully disengage in such a situation. The release latch is also nearly impossible to access when shroud-equipped graphics is installed. Gigabyte's fan-control scheme is still rather "meh" IMO. It's one PCIe slot short of being properly mATX-sized. Audio circuitry doesn't look to be isolated, though the unnecessary, but defeatable, amber LED highlights suggest that it should be so. The silk-screened PCB lettering is dark gray and tiny, making it nearly impossible to read without really good light. But it booted first time with no hiccups, and has given me no operational or driver trouble. There are better options out there, but I wouldn't recommend against it.
Only complaint is that the MB only has 2 total fan headers (1 for CPU and 1 for case). if you buy this motherboard, you will need a fan splitter.
also the manual that comes with it is horrible, tells you nothing. You will need to go online and read that one.
Does it's job, but the bright orange LED lights kind of clash with the otherwise black and white colour scheme I had.
Nice motherboard does what we need it to do. Only one system fan header but no problem because our case came with molex adapters. Also the RAM slots are very close to the top expansion slot. Makes it difficult to get video cards out.
