    Don't care of Gigabyte. Always was cheap "made in China's garage" brand. Did they grow / improve now? I personally love ASUS and loyal to it. The second one would be MSI.

    Oh boy, 3rd pic, small 40mm fan blowing air over the VRMs around CPU socket. Year or two later that high RPM fan worn-out and starts to rattle it's going to be a horror sound for motherboard owner.

    They have at least tried, and it looks like it would be easy to replace.
    There is still a marked for x299 (and that is not among gamers) but professional users that need higher clock speed than ryzen/threadripper can deliver. Just wish they made the boards more like work tools than bling.

    And i can name at least as many people who had bad experiences with Asus and MSI and would not recommend them even if they would give the boards away for free.

    In other words comments like yours are utterly useless.

    Perhaps, but some people might had burned themself previously.
    I have also problems with Gigabyte stuff as some of their stuff I used before were not exactly good quality.

    Even now when they finaly seems step up, their top end stuff still have issues.
    I decided to buy their Aorus 1080Ti extreme waterforce WB gpu and end up with it leaking 45 days later (they used only 2 ot of 3 screws and one of them was not screwed in enough causing leak eventualy). Dont get me wrong it looks great and except that leak was perfect, but I would expect little bit more QC especialy in case of GPU with water block.

    If I wasnt paranoid and used smaler cheaper case, that water would end up driping into PSU, most likely killing my whole $4k PC.

    Also it seems some of their current mobos apparently having issues with VRM temperature (20+ degrees higher then others).
    And then there was their bios screw-up that was killing CPUs with over voltage.

    So would you call me biased fanboy too ?

    That vent at the rear is not only a SHEER stupidity - it's a crime against humanity and technology. And it is typical for gigabyte... Such company should be forbidden from getting involved in any kind of busyness except selling bananas, oranges, lemons, potatoes...

    OK? This motherboard come with a free Nvidia GPU or something?


    My first reaction to this thread was scanning through the posts then I started wondering why someone hadn't said anything about this being in the wrong forum.

    to put simple, its just personal experience and preference
    nothing reflect to the "true" brand reliability
    if you can give some data that gigabyte products have much higher failure rate compared to other brand then it can means something

    like u saying that their current mobo have VRM issue, if that true, then it will be hot-news, so far i hear nothing about recall neither report from any tech sites.

    i personally had multiple failed MSI gpu, even their lighting series... while none yet from asus or gigabyte brand, only 2-3 cards that got noisy fan (wearing) after years of 24/7 usage.
    ever since then i never buy MSI again, because i got bad experience with their products, but that doesnt mean their product bad

    Currently I only slightly dislike Gigabyte, whereas I use to hate them for hardware.

    The only Gigabyte motherboard I have owned was a Sandy Bridge P67A-UD4-B3, It literally took 6 months before I could run my system at full stock settings reliably without crashing. After that period I could OC normally to the 4.6-4.7Ghz range. I currently have a Gigabyte Laptop (P57W V6) and it is decent, but it doesn't have any way to modify the BIOS beyond the bare basic settings of AHCI/Boot Drive etc. Disappointing for a upper mid-tier laptop.
