Since it’s a reasonably large sized packaging, Gigabyte provided a strong package to house it in.

Lucky for us there are no more boxes to open and this is the beauty I’ll be talking about today.

    7/10 you must be joking.
    Voltage droop issue, Core unlocking issue and expensive.

    on top of that one miserable usb 3.0 controller for the front, same for the back.
    is this a mb for the future?
    well, not for me.

      Hi Zeepkist,

      I’m not joking at all. In my eyes 7/10 for a flagship motherboard is a bad score. These top-of-the-line motherboards are supposed to take the crown, regardless of their price. In this case the price barely justifies the quality of the motherboard.

      If the motherboard didn’t have the Vdroop and core unlocking issue it would have had a much better score. It’s up to Gigabyte to fix these problems, or at least show that the Vdroop is essential for the upcoming Zambezi.

    i would give it 4/10.

    too many usb 2.0 and not enough usb 3.0

      You use USB 3 for what exactly?
