Not what I had hoped for,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I ordered this, I was looking forward to my new build. But as soon as I had installed it and booted it up I had problems and continued to have problems for the next 3 weeks until I gave up and returned it to Amazon. Constantly giving me BSOD's, not recognising HDD's that was installed, not booting up - I had to reinstall Windows 7 at least 7-8 times etc etc. Despite installing the latest BIOS, the problems persisted and after 3 weeks of perseverance I'd had enough and requested a return to Amazon for a refund. I have reordered another board (different make) and have had no problems at all. This must have been a rogue board, because not everyone has had the same experience as I have. But if you order this board, just be prepared.
The kit I installed was:
IIntel Core i7 4770K Quad Core Retail CPU (Socket 1150, 3.50GHz, 8MB, Haswell, 84W, Intel Graphics, BX80646I74770K, 4th Generation Intel Core, Turbo Boost Technology 2.0)
Kingston KHX16C9P1K2/16 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM HyperX Plug and Play Memory Module (Kit of 2)
MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Gaming 4GB DDR5 Twin Frozer IV FAN PCI-E Graphics Card
Samsung 840 Series Pro 256GB 2.5 inch SATA Solid State Drive
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 CPU Cooler
Amazon have been excellent, accepted the return and refunded the money - even paid for the return. Can't fault the service.

Thanks for the review. I had this in my basket!
Just wondering, what motherboard did you settle on in the end?

Went for the Asus Z87-Pro. Great board, relatively very little trouble setting up. A few teething problems with a webcam, but sorted that out with a patch from Asus. So far very pleased with. Have been able to use the bundled software to OC ro 4.7mhz without any problems, but haven't left it at that, returned it back to 3.5mhz. Just did it out of curiosity. If your thinking of a board I would consider this one, I know its a little more but its worth it just to not have the hassle like I did with the Gigabyte.
