Yeah, there is some research to be done there. There sure does seem to be some random lockup issues on that board and the latest Gigabyte BIOS updates don't seem to be fixing it.
I've also been looking at the Asus P8Z77-V...but due to fact that I want eSata
I have to step up to the Deluxe model and that brings the price up to $275...which is more than I really want to spend on my mobo. I'd like to be under $200 on the mobo.
Edit: I stand corrected, I can do the LE version for $165 Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Got more research to do. Thank you for the feedback.
