Unstable Windows 10 Drivers

Overall, I have found this motherboard to be up to the general standard I have come to expect from Gigabyte.

However, I have found the supplied drivers for the WiFi functionality to be not fit for purpose under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. The issue is so severe that I have been forced to disable the WiFi in Windows in order to be able to run the system.

From my research this may not be that uncommon an issue with the Intel chipset in question and there are recorded (work-arounds) by using older drivers but I have not tried this yet.

In addition, the motherboard is quoted as being 3333+Mhz ready but I can only squeeze ~2800MHz out of my 3200MHz memory when using the relevant XMP profile with an i7-6950X.

Issues aside, the motherboard seems to work otherwise as advertised and due to it's solid construction I feel I can recommend it despite the concerns.
