This mainboard belongs to the value segment only formally. It barely differs from the top model in the lineup, almost all of its functions remained the same. Its functionality is even much more extensive than that of many mainboards from other manufacturers. The only feature that allows us to consider it a Value product is its price.

210 dollars is not a value product

actually its more like 180 now

and for the amount of pci-e slots and other things
yes its a good value for Intel 1366 socket

most don't start until around $170.00

because of the triple channel memory and other things
it can do. the boards for 1366 by default start at a higher
price point than what most ppl would consider "value" boards

a lot of the high end boards are over 300.00 for 1366 socket...

and the average price is probably around $240-250 for a 1366 board

Don't fall for it like me, if you really like this board go around forums and check for compatible memory kits. Their memory QVL is a joke and it also has several bios issues.
I was so disappointed by this board that instead of changing my memory kit i just switched to an Asus Sabertooth x58.

A note about aftermarket coolers: one of the holes has a resistor not far from it, so some backplates can be a problem.

Nice series. I suggest you do the GA-X58-USB3 now. That is the real value in the Gigabyte X58 series, with just the essentials and no frills at all. Would be interesting to see how well it overclocks.
