Great board

 
1.0
Verdict: Absolutely loves this board! Made OC'ing a breeze literally one click. Sound blaster, the audio software is also awesome. The only thing I would change is better lighting throughout the board, seems like they are concentrated on bottom left. I would recommend this board to everyone.

Absolute Garbage

 
5.0
Verdict: I bought this motherboard to build a PC for my home. The PC worked fine for 2 months and died all of a sudden. I have been trying to get Gigabyte to issue an RMA so that they can replace my motherboard.

Pros

 
5.0
Pros: Nice color scheme
Cons: None
Verdict: That's a really good looking board and also really performant with easy Bios overclocking settings. Easy Bios ROM update. Integrated sound card and Ethernet are awesome. Totally recommend this board, not worth buying the higher end model of this series.

Z170X-Gaming 3 is easy to install

 
5.0
Verdict: Returned the Asus board that had 2 bad Dimm slots and installed this Gigabyte board. I couldn't be happier. Booted right up, installed my drivers and it is running great. Intel I7-6700k and 16 gb of Crucial ram.

Best thing in the market as of now. Speaking from experience

 
4.0
Verdict: This is something that should you go for if you want one serious and sick build. Cannot mention how satisfied i am with the final build. Motherboard quality is sturdy. You won't hesitate even if you need to apply a bit of a pressure to insert any cable which are hard for eg.

Great MoBo for Entry level Gaming

 
4.0
Pros: Updated on Aug.2, 2016 - price raised back up $139.99 and no valid reason to do so. No real issues with Mobo, would consider the Gaming 7 over Gaming 3. Gigabyte has upgrade revision from 1.0. to 1.1 on all Z170 series mobo.
Cons: Heard some people had issues with SLEEP MODE. Either it would recycle ON/Off their computer or not at all. Windows 7 Ultimate works but please do not install Gigabyte Utility programs from their website as the produce some strange unexpected issues. Download only the drivers you intend to use.
Verdict: Wished it had 2- PCIx16 slots instead of one PCIx16 and PCIx8 which makes SLI / Crossfire run at x8. But I'm only using 1 - GTX 970 for now so no biggie. When I update to the Gaming G1 mobo in 2017 will get 2 - GTX 980 Ti's.

Excellent features, BIOS & PWM fan control somewhat lacking.

 
4.0
Verdict: There's nothing too wrong with these boards. Initially (just after release) it's been very hard to find online reviews of this particular board. But there's no question with the PCI-e slots layout and 2x full speed m.2 slot that this is a well spec'd board for the money.
