    It's a great motherboard. Just wish it had more SATA cables. I have to stick with 2 drives.

    It's a motherboard, the BIOS interface is easy to use and it has enough fan headers for my system such that I can control all the fans speeds (all fans are PWM fans). It works and thats it. I had to use my i5 to flash the bios and gigabyte really made me work to find the exact mobo i had because for some reason there are ~3 h170 gaming 3 boards and the wrong bios will brick the machine if installed. But after flashing the bios, I got my i7 to POST and then I took my old machine apart and put it back together with the new parts. In short, cant go wrong with the board but know that you'll need a skylake processor to update it.

    This I had the most trouble choosing. I was originally looking at a Z170/Z270, but my cousin (who's super tech-y) recommended an H170 so I went with this Gigabyte one, after a long debate (AKA I had no idea and just listened to him LOL). I ordered this from Newegg, and realized it was $20 cheaper at Memory Express but it was too late because it was sold by an 'independent seller' and blah blah w/e. It was pretty hard to find and TBH I think I could've went with something better. However, it works fine, has some sick audio lights but only 3 case fan ports so that's why I had to get the splitter. Dual Channel memory, 2 PCIE slots for SLI/Crossfire to your hearts content.

    The only complaint is that it came with 2 SATA cables, but they were different! One was flat on both ends, and the other was flat on one side and L-shaped on the other, which did not fit at all at first. Thank god I was able to make this work in my case, but with a bit of a stretch.

    This motherboard is okay. The built-in hardware is okay but the major flaw is the fact that it doesn't support SLI and the Gigabyte app center. Especially the SIV for monitoring your temps and fans speeds, which doesn't work, in fact it causes my fans connected to motherboard to stop working. I only got it because it was cheap and on sale.

    I haven't experienced any major problems so far. One issue that probably was my fault is that the I/O shield doesn't line up with the ports perfectly. Might just be my case. It's a good motherboard for my needs, and has some red LEDs that I didn't know about until I turned it on...
