Glad I rarely buy Gigabyte boards

Just one more reason to stick to my tried and true ASUS boards.

At least the guy in the video got it to post... at least once anyway. I'm usually not that lucky.
Excellent quality control Gigabyte.

Maybe all the extra cooling you can do to chipsets and the vrms on a motherboard aren't so overkill anymore..

After buying 3 Gigabyte main-boards in a row and all having problems (then the amount of returns I've seen when I was working in a sales / repair shop).
I've never rated Gigabyte in terms of quality control. (Note this was years ago, but first impressions and all)

When they work, they are great.. But see sooo many problems I'll never suggest one to anyone ever.

That said I have a gigabyte 560Ti OC card in my machine.. only prob is BF3 (which isn't working right anyway) makes it overheat.. not changed the fan profile or nout yet..

I've been happy with my Gigabyte boards. Bought 5 in the last two years. Different ones and I like the way they work. Only issue I had was 1 board didnt' like the RAM I got for it. Switched the RAM and everything was great.
