Rated 5 out of 5 by EdgeOfPain Great board
Worked out of the box. After the machine was built it POSTed just fine. It's got a user-friendly UEFI which lets you check temperatures and set drive priorities.
By far the most awesome thing about this motherboard is the WiFi controller it comes with. I would have preferred a WiFi controller that wasn't external, but it's still really good. It gets the same speed as my Ethernet connection, which is really saying something. Much better than those USB dongles, too.

Went with Gigabyte this time around mainly for the alc1150, also because i dont thrust products with random names like supremefx, which afaik hides a via audio chip inside. Build quality looks great, slapped an i5-6600 and my old GTX570 in a cooler master elite 130 and havent had any problem except for, ironically, the sound card not being recognised if you have DSP enabled in bios. Disabled DSP, and never had any other issue.
