I went with Gigabyte because of the price, great reviews, and good looks. Gigabyte has a utility that allows you to make changes to the BIOS without having to load into the BIOS, pretty trick.

Can't ask for more.

Works as a Z97 board should, the BIOS is beautiful, and the red LEDs on board are a nice touch.

Love the bios on this board. Also when I was at microcenter I told an employee in the building section that i was unsure what mobo to go with, 3 customers and 2 other employees pointed at the board..... I cant think of any better way to prove the point.

Decent board, great aesthetics, average on board audio, no wifi or bluetooth onboard and only 3 fan headers.
