    Looks alright, but Gigabyte always has way too much writing on thjeir motherboards. If these finally do away with the writing, my next motherboard might be another Gigabyte, but otherwise I'll go with MSI (or ASUS).

    It didn't say they were all 16 lanes at the same time. They all have the possibility of using 16 lanes. If you put two GPU's on there, they'll simply change to 8 lanes.

    Not enough LEDs. I was going to crack a joke about adding LEDs pointlessly to something equally as ridiculous but I couldn't think of anything left aside from the monitor. Get on it Corsair. Bezel, tons of LEDs, just do it.
    Dead before any SATA Express SSDs were ever released. That port on my motherboard is worthless, thanks Obama. At least those M2 slots might come in handy.

    dont care for Gigabyte anymore. changing mem chips (with lower perf) on their Rev2 gpus, without mentioning it to customers, and the fact that most of the time asus and asrock offer more features in the same price range...

    Why four PCI-Express x16 slots if Nvidia just stopped supporting more than 2way SLI ?:3eyes:
