I've got pretty much every Gigabyte board released in the past two years and have had none of these issues, really. When it comes to slot arrangement, that alone is a huge part of why they have so many models. Mounting points? That's the same story for nearly every board out there. Very few boards use all mounting points, most forgoing a mount on the left side on the bottom half of the board.
However, yes, they are noisy. There is no arguing that. It's a crazy product, for sure, but I think I understand the inspiration.
