    from completed build GGPC - The G1 Loop!

    Great motherboard, not too heavy on the bling which was perfect for this build however is saying that I don't understand why it's not just all black, wouldn't this suit an RGB board better than having a static colour on it?. Anyways the heatsinks came off no issue and were easy to paint. The slot layout is flawless and software was easy to use for tweaking of LED colours but when I tried to connect the Phanteks RGB strip to this directly the colours came out wrong, I added a PH-CB_RGB4P adaptor though and everything was fixed :)

    I went with this particular motherboard because it was on Tonymacx86.com's buyers guide for hackintoshes. I went with this variant over the more popular ones as it seems to have mostly Intel components and have two display outputs for use with the Intel HD 530 iGPU. Since I cant utilize macOS with my GTX 1070, I purchased this motherboard to use the iGPU when in macOS.

    Overclocks well, lights up everywhere, has an RGB lighting header, has Thunderbolt 3 support, and U.2 ports.

    The only complaint I have are the blue accents on the motherboard and it's non standard, weird fan headers. The only true PWM header is the CPU fan header, and the SYS2 fan header works with PWM as long as you have separate dedicated power source. I used a SATA powered Swiftech PWM hub to connect to the SYS2 fan header to control all case fans.

    I was a little disappointed of the ambient leds on the motherboard as they dont seem to produce anything close to what im asking. playing around with the leds i got somewhat ok color.
