GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 Motherboard Review

The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 is the top Intel X79 motherboard in GIGABYTE's product stack. There isn't much in the way of features that GIGABYTE left out of the X79-UD7. Today we will compare the performance of the GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 to the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme and the ECS X79R-AX! How will it stack up against The top Intel X79 motherboards from ASUS and ECS? Join our little bandwagon and find out!

The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 proved itself to be a very capable motherboard that handled everything we threw at it with ease. I would easily recommend the GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 to anyone looking to put together an Intel X79 LGA2011 system!

A shame this review came a day after Newegg ran out and won't be getting more since it was a limited run from Gigabyte. Even among enthusiasts, the UD5 will likely be enough mobo--since the top gpu's are a bit too expensive to buy 4 of. Gigabyte took the showbiz slogan of "Always leave them wanting more..." ;)

yeah, well it wasn't supposed to be limited edition... When we finished the review and saw it was deactivated on Newegg, that is when we asked and they told us. No site called that board limited edition when it came out.

Yeah, I figured that and I'm sure there were many people misled initially. I wasn't criticizing the review, it was a great one and actually timely. Maybe Gigabyte is directing their efforts into something better. :)

The power phase design would overhead and see a catastrophic failure. (overheat) last page

the OTP was not working on the F6 or older bios so make some nice smoke when they overheated
