- Good value for the money - Multiple pcie slots spaced out to give your gpu breathing room - Pcie m.2 support - Frequent bios updates
- Overclocking is limited
It's a great budget option, but with a 2700 running at 3.9 ghz, an all core sustained avx load causes the vrms to throttle with good case airflow after a couple minutes. Any other load doesn't see this issue. Also was unable to get the vcore past 1.3 with any version of their bios that i loaded. If you buy a chip that draws less than 100 watts sustained then as long as you don't get a dud, you'll be very happy with your purchase.

Works well, good looking board, most ports and headers well laid out, lots of features, BIOS and Windows utilities easy to use and well designed UI, support for standard RGB/W lighting as well as both 12V and 5V addressable RGB lighting
Quite short on overclocking options, M.2 takes up one PCIe slot, issue with latest BIOS at time of this review (F50)
Runs perfectly with a 2600X using just the built-in standard PBO2 and XFR2 for boost. However, there are limited OCing features compared to other boards for those who wish to do so, as well as a lack of options to actually adjust PBO/XFR options and thresholds to increase performance. When I initially got the board it was updated to the F50 BIOS which was the latest and I kept running into issues with the BIOS doing weird things and it would half the time not boot properly, however I downgraded both BIOS to the previous revision which is F42g and everything is working perfectly now. Since then it has been a solid board.

A good looking board, with a great feature set that comes from one of the greatest companies in the PC industry, and its reasonably priced (especially on sale).
Gigabyte's overclocking "voltage offset" is bad. Not that it does not work (eventually), but it is bad engineering design, and not intuitive. This board does not have the greatest VRM design, but you get what you pay for. This is not an expensive board, so it does not have an expensive VRM Design. At least it does have a VRM heat sink, so it could be worse. The RGB implementation is not perfect. I'm not done trying yet but the LED on Gigabyte GTX1060 will not be recognized by Aorus or RGB Fusion (frustrating).
My r7 2700 did go to 4.0GHz at 1.27V and 61C during Intel burn test, but it was so painful to get there. My next build will not have voltage offset overclocking (regardless of brand). But if your not into overclocking, then it's a pretty good product.

Good board, looks good. Compact and has the basic needs.
I saw this problem with other aorus boards, the CPU led flashes, but there isn’t any problem with the cpu. I have tested my processor on a different board, and my power supply and the board seems to have an issue. Not the other components. Replaced battery, but the board does this red light thing the odd time, it seems as if it weren’t connected to power, was the trigger, but I don’t know.
Look for something else, not gigabyte.
