Top critical review
October 31, 2018
My first gigabyte product, stupidly i should have taken a perusal through forums before buying to learn what i have. The driver support for their products are abysmal, new bios versions advertised as stable do not install. Then theres the whole RGB story with their software which is painful to use beyond words.
Hardware is something else, dead CMOS battery upon receiving the product is never a good sign, a usb c port that does not work with AT ALL and when something does go wrong, like it just did for me, trying to get support results in being told that as a Canadian customer, the only option is to ship the product back to california, at your own expense *they recomend tracking* which would amount to almost $83CAD, wait on a turnaround of roughly 2-4 weeks and then they send it back through the slowest means possible (this ive read via comments on their forums from other Ontario based customers)
Just do yourself a favour and buy something else, MSI have always been good to me and im kicking myself that i didn't go with one of their boards for this build.
learn from my mistakes.
