    CB15 scores ~2000 points (multi) where at defaults clocks we are at 2194 points.


    Too bad about slight OC tweaking issues. Will proly be fixed in next BIOS
    (i almost died today flashing my own BIOS to v1702 and having to go through 3(!) reboots due to ME update o_O)

    All in very decent board. Comes with ES9118 SABRE DAC, and Bluetooth 5

    Thanks for the review

    a Gigabyte board built like a tank?:eek::eek:

    if you wanted a "halo" board, this will do.
    but i don't trust Gigabyte at the lower end... the boards become disturbingly thin and specs change w/o notice.
    even so, good on you Gigabyte

    This board is really good.
    The only problem with Gigabyte lately is their quality inconsistency across their models.
    The sound quality of their boards also need some improvement. It's sad we don't see anything about sound quality of motherboards in the reviews.
    Their UEFI environment works just fine but needs an improvement on layout/looks.
    Where Gigabyte really fall short is their software.
    It's absolute garbage.
    Smart System Fan always runs into problems and their RGB Fusion is hot garbage.
    I wish we could see all these aspects reviewed as well.
    Those matter a lot when hardware between same tier motherboards offers almost the same performance and the deal maker/breaker is those details.
