    so.....while everyone else is doing Reviews we only get Previews at tpu? Not saying you did a bad job because the Preview was excellent,i just think Previews take away from your Review :)

    Yes, only a preview. Was actually done before the launch of the CPU, and Gigabyte got me the board early last week. I "handed it in" after the launch though, and other reviews already planned left it until today.

    Still lots to cover: BIOS, software, performance, and overclocking.


    I have no 1155 CPUs though, so no review is possible at this time.:banghead: However, we did have a user asking about the board as well as a few others, so I got up what I could ASAP. ;)
    mlee49 and AthlonX2 say thanks.

    you had a 1155 before didnt you? Oh well don't matter, was looking for some clocking on this mobo. I be in the market for Z77 or Z79 mobo. Not sure yet what to get.

    Thanks for clearing that up, did I miss it at the begining of the review? If not, definately should add.

    Great job Dave.

    It already is. ;)

    Actual timing as to when I got stuff, and when the review published, is not needed. It's technically already here in the forums too, as I always post a pic of the stuff I get the day I get it, in one form or another.


    And frankly, if I had a chip for the board, there'd be more than a preview. Just sayin'. No need to state the obvious, IMHO, but here ya guys are asking, so here I go explainin'. :roll: Next I'll start directing you to W1zz for answers.:laugh:

    will you be re-visiting this one when you get a 1155 chip again, this is the one board I was interested in the z77 range until I saw the pcie slot arrangement :banghead:

    your preview's actually got me interested again
