Durable

All Solid Caps and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs
GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan.

5x (15µ) Gold Plated CPU Socket Design
GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards come equipped with a gold plated CPU socket, which means that enthusiasts can enjoy absolute reliability and longevity for the CPU socket overtime, without having any concerns about corroded pins and bad contacts.

Safe

GIGABYTE Patented DualBIOS™ (UEFI) Design
GIGABYTE 9 series Ultra Durable™ motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS™, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC’s most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS™ means that your motherboard has both a ‘Main BIOS’ and a ‘Backup BIOS’, making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.

ESD Protection for USB and LAN
GIGABYTE 9 Series motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.

Power Failure Protection with Anti-Surge IC
GIGABYTE 9 series Ultra Durable™ motherboards also feature special anti-surge ICs that protect your motherboard, and your PC from any surge in power delivery that may occur, helping to ensure that your PC is equipped to deal with any potentially irregular and inconsistent power delivery.

Humidity Protection with New Glass Fabric PCB
There is nothing more harmful to the longevity of your PC than moisture, and most parts of the world experience moisture in the air as humidity at some point during the year. GIGABYTE 9 series motherboards have been designed to make sure that humidity is never an issue, incorporating a new Glass Fabric PCB technology that repels moisture caused by humid and damp conditions.

Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.

4K Ultra HD Support
4K resolution is the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, utilizing approximately 4,000 pixels on the horizontal axis, more than four times today's standard HD pixel density. GIGABYTE motherboards provide native 4K support with integrated Intel® HD Graphics via HDMI.

HDMI™-The Next Generation Multimedia Interface
HDMI™ is a High-Definition Multimedia Interface which provides up to 5Gb/s video transmitting bandwidth and 8-channel high quality audio all through a single cable. Able to transmit superior, uncompressed digital video and audio, HDMI™ ensures the crispest rendering of digital content up to 1080p without the quality losses associated with analog interfaces and their digital-to-analog conversion. In addition, HDMI™ is compatible with HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), allowing the playback of Blu-ray/HD DVD and other protected media content. Features • Supports 4th and 5th Generation Intel® Core™ processors
• Extreme multi graphics support
• High Quality Audio Capacitors
• LAN with high ESD Protection

Intel Z97 Chipset
Date Issued: 11th May 2014

In June, 2013, Intel launched an assemblage of new 'Haswell' Core series processors presented in the LGA 1150 form factor. Inherently different to the LGA 1155 form factor it succeeded, LGA 1150 spurred the release of a new chipset family known as the 8-series.

Reviews
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value, excellent quality for system builders. Recently bought this motherboard to replace an AM3+ board as I recently bought a new i5 processor. Would strongly recommend this product to any customer looking to build a new system or upgrade. The bios has a very modern look too! 09 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product at affordable price A good introduction to the Z97 chipset. Paired with G3528 CPU and it is performing very well. Into bios and set performance to +20% and let system do what it needs to run, rock solid at 4.3GHz. Bios has plenty of options for manual overclocking but with this simple option I decided not to bother with time consuming process - at least for now:) 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flexible There is plenty of room on this board for most things like crossfire (dual graphics). Also with 4 ddr3 slots and 3 system fan connections makes this a good all round board even if it is a little pricier than AMD boards. 18 April 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Unreliable Bought this board worked well for a while then faults started appearing. Lost its raid config, couldn't load windows, then once powered off with cord removed would go to bios defaults, even with new battery. A shame because I can't give it an honest rating because it really didn't give me a chance. RMA'ing 29 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for budget builds. I'm going to start by saying that the actual motherboard looks different as it does in the pictures (Instead of a bright yellow it is a dull gold colour). The motherboard supports USB 3.0 and is slightly shorter that most ATX motherboards. (a regular sized ATX motherboard uses 8-9 screws to hold down the PCB but this motherboard only uses 6). Which means that it is slightly easier to install. When you open up the box you should have: - The Motherboard - 2 Serial ATA Data cables (one of which has right angles connectors) - a manual/ users guide - a disk with drivers and other software (this is completely optional - I didn't use the disk because I didn't want loads of unwanted software) - and some other useless pieces of paper 22 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome motherboard, amazing value at this price. Compatible with older Haswell CPU's, Devil's Canyon and upcoming 14nm Broadwell chips. Very inexpensive motherboard. Nice design, and Gigabyte support (Frequent bios updates) plus great customer support if needed. Great value for money. 25 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job, but could be better. It looks a lot better in person than it does in the pictures, less cheap. That said, it does flex quite a bit under pressure and there are a few little niggles such as the HD Audio socket which didn't work very well with the plug from my case. The Bios won't allow me to OC my Pentium G3258, despite flashing to a new version which features this capability. All that said, it has 6xSata 6gbps ports which is great at this price point. all the I/O is intelligently placed (except the fan headers) and it runs without issue. Overall, I wish it could do more but my complaints are either small or manageable with an update. Definitely worth the money. Scan were brilliant with delivery, never been so pleased with a delivery service. 17 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice board Great board if you are starting out or need something that isnt going to break the bank, it doesnt have the functionality of costly boards, but it doesnt matter in a basic fast system. I built a family member a machine with this board and an i5 4440 with an SSD, its fast quiet and stable, which is perfect because it means i spend less time sorting out problems! For the price, you really cant argue. 13 June 2014

Not sure if this is compatible with Nvidia cards as i have screen flickering on Windows 8.1 Pro.
I have downloaded the drivers needed to run my Windows 8.1 compatible graphics card and still no difference.

Thanks in advance.
