1.) This is an H87 motherboard so do yourself a favor and DO NOT buy a 4670K (like the top reviewer has) OR any RAM rated over 1600mhz as this board bottlenecks overclocking abilities. I would personally suggest an i5-4570, its nearly exactly the same as the 4670 but it costs $30 less.
2.) If you don't have a CD tray, download the CD onto a USB drive, the drivers take up about 2.5GB of space so get a 4GB drive at least. In the files you will find an application called "run" double click on that and it will open the driver page. Make sure to look over all the drivers, the only ones you need are the intel ones, the usb drivers and the realtek audio drivers. Read over them all carefully. I think google and gigabyte must have some sort of deal together because there are a bunch of google downloads.
3.) This motherboard only comes with 2 sata 3.0 connectors*, I was thinking about running RAID 0 on my friends computer alongside an SSD but decided against it because I didn't feel like buying another sata connection. *As someone in the comments pointed out... I mean connectors as in cords, it does have 6 SATA 3.0 slots. Sorry for the confusion.
4.) When plugging in the fans, if you have a 3 pronged fan input, you have to plug the fans into the leftmost 3 pins. I'm not sure why male fan outlets aren't standardized but there you go.

Works great with a Gen 2, i7 processor. I'm using it for a Linux ( fedora ) based, plex media pc
Other than that (which's quite crucial..........), no problems.
I'm also interested knowing, what made gigabyte release the 1.1 Ver. I have the 1.0 Ver, curious to know what I'm missing. There were many bad reviews regarding freezes in initial Z87 mobos, I cannot not wonder if that inflict anything regarding the H87 line too.
Good points are, however, 4pin fan headers (PWM), and BIOS control is more than average. You can manually control FAN1 and separately FAN2+FAN3.
I don't like pople throwing words like "durable and solid", you have nothing to assure that as it's not an OC mobo. Given the slow SATAs, what can I say, I don't feel like I got true value for the money.
