post #61 of 76
I'm split between them. GPU = Ggiabyte, MB = ASUS
post #62 of 76
I've always been leery of GB for some reason, but after this board, I'm a believer.

Gigabyte stepped up their game in the Z77 series and socket FM2 (although lacking ITX).

Asus boards under $200 (P8Z77-V pro) aren't that great, RMA is bad lately, and the ROG stuff is massively overhyped.

Couple that with almost all Hackintosh builds using the Gigabyte X58, Z68X and you have a reason for Gigabyte's rise.

A quick look on Tonymacx86 lists:
GA-Z77-DS3H*
GA-H77-DS3H*
GA-B75M-D3P
GA-Q77M-D2H
GA-Z77X-UD5H

GA-X79-UD5

The only thing they really lack is multiple fan control from BIOs (all sys fans controlled by one setting) and fan control in Windows. ASUS' Wifigo is gimmicky ; not all Gigabyte boards use VIA stuff that needs drivers.

I think it has to d a lot with price. I could not find ASUS equivalent to to my Z77X-UD5H anywhere close to it price. You had to give $70 more to ASUS.

Used to love ASUS, then I got 5 bad boards back to back for my Core2Duo build and switched to Gigabyte and never looked back.

I have the same problem with my GA-Z68X-UD5-B3. Personally I think it's a rock solid board with plenty of features and quality hardware, but as with your Z77, mine reacts the same way to a bad overclock; boot loops until I hit the switch on power supply. It's inconvenient at best, but that's about my only complaint.

Edit: It has to be a pretty out of whack overclock (first board I've overclocked with, it took more than enough abuse) for it to boot loop, if its only a tad off it'll default.

I do have a ASUS P5Q-E since release and still using now with Q6600. Thats like 4-5 year old now. The thing is all my Gigabyte MB just feel a lot better. They all boot even when i make changes. With that ASUS MB every time i changed RAM, GPU it would take forever to boot it up.
