    GL with it for the milked idiots who buy it. People saying this looks nice only give ground for those people.

    And I thought my ASUS Crosshair VII Hero was expensive ...lmao I'd never pay that even if I had the money I think, I'd rather buy the blocks and build the cooling system myself If I had that kind of money.

    Obviously, our colleague got lost in translation. What he wanted to maintain is that the Asus is better than Gigabug, at least in this price range. Couldn't be more true than that - Giga is NOTORIOUS for it's buggy BIOSes and countless number of "revisions". Chaos and mess...

    Some people spend thousands on a bottle of whisky they drink in one sitting. Be a bit more open minded.

    Bios? I would think most people set it and leave it.

    There's plenty of excellent reviews and satisfied customers that have had no problems.

    Here's an in depth look at the bios, from the first review that showed up in a popular search engine

    Ferrari = one of the finest machines ever made by man with a long standing track record to support it; but I guess we can say the same about this now right?

    It's just a matter of perception.

    Oh, and just in case there's any confusion, I wasn't referring to the part about K.S. being a smarmy arse. :D

    LOL wouldn't touch Gigabyte unless it was a free test sample, then it would be returned...

    Useless BIOS and finicky setups. These are actually quite well described as similar to Ferrari's but not the performance examples, more the ones like the California and ones designed to extract money for a car that's not that great ;)

    I agree with u kaerar their bios' leave slot to be desired in terms of options and layout cant say I'm at all happy with my x470 aorus board its stuck with offset voltage that maxes out too low to even sustain a 4.0ghz oc on any bios except the original launch bios ( sorta bait and switch if u ask me ) also the board lacks options such as LLC and frequency switching.

    It was the LLC on my last Gigabyte board that killed my CPU. I had it set to minimum and yet due to a bug all LLC settings were maximum LLC. So yeah overvolted CPU all the time and boom degraded CPU :(
