Amazing VRN cooling ( not even necessary with such high efficiency VRN)
Onboard Wifi is nice and effective

Other Thoughts: Huge upgrade from Asrock AB350 pro

Pros: After reading all the reviews here it was difficult to decide to get this board or not as half the people here where having problems with this board supposedly…………
But because it was the best looking board in its class with some really interesting features I took a risk.
I installed it in a corsair air 540 case. The board looks great with lighting all around and in the middle with the memory and PCI lanes lite up. it is very fast from boot to desktop, I’m very happy with it and glad I made the decision to get it compared to what’s out there. Also unlike some of my other boards the two M.2 slots do not interfere with closing down certain SATA ports which was convenient
Cons: NA

This motherboard is a great gaming motherboard given the price point and the versatile overclocking potential. Like all Gigabyte motherboards, Gigabyte has a 4 year warranty if something breaks. I would recommend this motherboard to anybody needing a great gaming motherboard
