    Default Another Gigabyte motherboard ....

    Am going to upgrade another PC and will be going Haswell and 1150. And for some strange reason I am looking at Gigabyte again. Maybe I am a masochist and love the pain and anguish they cause.
    I guess being familiar around Gigabyte mobos ( like the error display LCD ) and their web site is an advantage and am considering one of these :


    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H Motherboard $315


    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H Motherboard $275

    $40 isnt much especially if the UD5H is a superior board but reading some threads here it has some problems with USB3


    Actually going to post a post in the Asus section and ask if they have something RELIABLE


    requirements : Crossfire plus an accessible spare slot for pci-e x1 sound card
    Reliable

    use: gaming/some graphics work using GIMP / general use plus web


    Major problem is basically all we get to see here are the problems with Gigabyte motherboards, you rarely get to see someone posting about how good and reliable they are


    edit: am unable to post in "what to buy forum"

    they do have their quirks I agree but usually once bios matures they are good/reliable boards

    no issues at all with my z77,cant speak for z87

    I think all boards suffer from usb3 issues,regardless of manufacturer

    But why is it taking so long to figure out these USB3 issues ? Is it that there are many uses they cant or dont want to try ?


    I dont really need to upgrade my other PC but its a disease ...... still in the end they cost me nothing , use to spend over $100 pw on cigarettes and made a promise that I would use the money saved on PC's , it worked I dont smoke but now addicted to PC's

    anyway, no I am in no hurry but then again I may order tomorrow :-)

    well ended up going for an Asus Maximus Hero VI ... the value for money option in the ROG range

    and it hasnt missed a beat ... setup smooth, fired up first time and everytime since even when I have had USB3 devices plugged in
