Oh so tempting. I would love to get a 6800K for the time being till corporations begin retiring their E5 Xeons; this would make an awesome machine for test VMs and gaming for me. Then again, I'm also excited about what AMD will offer with Ryzen. Yeah, maybe I'll wait a little longer...
What form factor is this motherboard? Also, what is the LED color for the back-side LEDs?

oh sorry the back panel I/0 is a white LED. The gold LED is the heatsinks.

It is actually not eatx (no consumer "eatx" board is), but closer to SSI-CEB. It should fit in any case that can support a GPU as long as it is.

Yikes.
I had this mobo with my 6930k CPU and it died on me shortly after one year and I never over clocked it or raid. The computer would boot to Windows but it would cause the CPU to over heat and make the computer shut down. I replaced the CPU cooler, ram and power supply and the issue wasn't fixed till I changed the mobo . So heads up
any idea of shipping bios version and motherboard revision? Given newer 2011-3 processors will require F22 BIOS, and there are some minor distinctions between the rev 1.0 and rev 1.1. board?
A motherboard ...?
This is a excellent deal because I accidentally bought a thunderbolt 2 expansion card a year ago, and thought it was for all gigabyte motherboards. So now I have a purpose buying this beast. Plus it has on-board WiFi and is able to use Broadwell-e CPU's. Using this motherboard for music and producing purposes not for gaming FYI.
I have had bad luck with Gigabyte mobos. The last one that I bought arrived DOA. The replacement was DOA. The replacement for that one was DOA. And the fourth copy of the mobo is DOA. I gave up on Gigabyte. Your mileage may be better.

Just a friendly reminder X99/2011 are "dead" in that the current CPUs are the only CPUs that will work in that socket. In 2H 2017 Intel is moving to the X299 chipset and the 2066 socket (instead of 2011-3) with Kabylake-X and Skylake-X.
Not shitting on X99 (I own an MSI X99 board and a 5820k), but it is something to be aware of, in ~6 months there will be a new socket and new chipset that replaces this.

I would expect MoBo price drops to be greater than CPU, as chipsets tend to have newer features with each generation. It might not be as much for this board though, because it's the last X99/2011 socket.

Yeah just look on ebay at X79 motherboard prices, the HEDT motherboards tend not to fall too much in price. Mostly because in 5 years the Xeons from the X99 generation will hit ebay for $100-200 a pop for an originally $4000 server CPU. So tech guys like to buy the used Xeon for $150, then a used motherboard to put it in. So the used HEDT motherboard market is almost always fairly stable.
