Now that I have had problems with my board I am finding many others with issues as well so be careful in your decision to buy this and make sure you buy from a reputable vendor so you can return/replace if broken.

Perhaps it was due to the other issues with the board but for an LGA 2011 system with an i7 and 16GB of 1600MHz ram I did not see a hugh improvement over my Core 2 Duo system both running Windows 7 64-bit and I even tried Windows 8 Pro 64-bit but that only made things worse.

Will I buy Gigabyte again or even try another one of these boards, most likely, but I will never purchase anything from Newegg again.
