Love this board, just wish it wasn't so damn expensive. With boards like the GD65 you have to ask if paying over double the price is worth it.

I honestly can't believe how low your volts are for 4.8GHz...Jesus H Christ almighty.

Gigabyte have certainly done something right with this board.

A great review, Tom - looks as though I may have to devote more attention to the Sniper boards from now on.

I love this board so much, i'd love to have one. Performance wise this looks like the best Z77 board out there atm, and one of the best looking boards too

Looks like an amazing board but as the others have said, way out of my price range. I'm actually a fan of the fact they've not gone for gun shaped heatsinks etc. but that's prob just me

Oh no, I think there are a great many people amongst this forum who didn't like the marketing scheme that Gigabyte was employing.

Someone please tell me why such an expensive board should have VGA (or even DVI, for that matter)?

What a waste of I/O space. Gigabyte dun goofed.
