Thanks everyone, looks like it's AMD for me.

:AMD is a safer bet, there's too much complexity on the Intel side nowadays.

   I'm pretty happy with the gigabyte board.  There are still some issues
   with AHCI but mostly pertaining to host-swap and external enclosures.
   All I feel are fixable even if I have to depart from the AHCI spec
   a bit as a special case.
