Sorry, completely missed this. Gigashat hardware wise is definitely up there with Anus. Software is where they fall down, specially RGB and fan calibration. My system is MUCH quieter using RoG boards. their BIOS is almost as good as Asus and I would go as far as saying second best out of the top tier manufacturers. Gigabyte also use this piece of crap framework software called App centre that is required for any of their Windows software to run. This includes their RGB and system monitoring software. If you don’t need these it’s best to avoid installing any of the Gigabyte software, it’s fucking awful. Then Asus have their sneaky armory crate junk that they try to sneak on when you least expect it. I would give them a shot. They are much better value than Asus and the other 2 brands are junk. Edit: Gigabyte are also more frequent with Bios releases.
