I ordered this "Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI Motherboard" on the 1/10.2015 and received it on thee 4/10/2015 and it came without damage. So well done to Amazon there.
I didn't order the i5 6600k processor from Amazon though as of reading some of the reviews for it there seems to be confusions of with chip they will send. A lot of people received the i5 6600 chip without the "K" but as from the time i writing this review, it might have been rectified. Just something to watch out for though. I ordered mine from OCUK.
Now to the motherboard.
This Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI Motherboard is a corker of a motherboard for the price in my eyes, It has all the features you will need for the Skylake setup. Here is a hardware review website for all the features. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjvtVQRk28Q
Please Note: Before installing this board, download all the latest chipset driver from Gigabytes website including the new BIOS drivers which are F5a, this will proove to be vital as if you only use the F2 CD bios, then you will run into trouble if you are using 4 DIMMS of DDR4 as the F2 BIOS will only recognize 2 sticks of memory. YOU MUST UPDATE TO THE LATEST F5a BIOS. I got caught out with this at the start as the computer just kept rebooting and then I knew it had to be the bios driver. It was an easy fix. I used 4 sticks of Kingston Fury DDR4 2666MHZ and the board read it at that 2666 MHZ straight out of the box with even going into XMP settings in the bios.
The board has even an M.2 socket in there as well and USB 3.1 TYPE C connector for a bit of future proofing as well as a led strip that runs the length of the board which you can set to BEAT or PULSE or have always ON or just turn OFF in the bios.Read more ›
Cons: The BIOS is HORRIBLE. Instead of looking on all drives EFI partition for all bootable EFI files, it will ONLY find Windows 8/10 EFI files. This means if you're running any operating system and you update the BIOS, you are going to have a bad time. The BIOS update will destroy your EFI boot manager and your saved settings and basically give you a dead PC until you boot from a USB drive and fix your efi boot order with efibootmgr or some similar program or reinstall your OS. There is nothing worse than updating your BIOS an then spending 2 hours trying to figure out why your PC is dead only to find that Gigabyte decided you only needed Windows 10 to boot. As junk as Intel motherboards are, they even know you do not kill the EFI boot manager.
This mobo is fantastic. Installed with no issues whatsoever. I did not even need renew the bios. 16Gb of ram (2x8) found instantly (I went into bios to enable xmp and the bios saw it as 2666mhz). Perfect.
The total system is blisteringly fast, with a 100% increase in CPU (over my old i5 3570K) and a 40% increase on FPS over my old GTX 660 according to Cinebench R15. I'm not an overclocker, so this mobo, as a no thrills Skylake platform, was perfect for me. The mobo does include an M.2 socket which I was looking for.
My spec is as follows:
i7 6700 (non k)
16gb Ram (2666mhz)
GTX 960 4gb
Samsung 128gb M.2 SSD
All installed and running with no hiccups.
This system runs Witcher 3 on ultra settings with ease.
All in all a fantastic motherboard though!
