Man I love the new look of these Gigabyte boards! Makes me want to buy one just for that! About time they fancied up their boards a little. I know we're not supposed to care about such frivolous things but I cant help myself.

Looks good as the latest ad on the side panels of the forum too. Nicely done Gigabyte!

AMD FX-8350 @ 4.815 ••• Asus Sabertooth 990FX rev 1••• Corsair H100
Corsair 500R ••• EVGA Supernova G2 750 ••• Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB x2 ••• MSI R9 290x Lightning
Samsung 840 Evo 250GB ••• BenQ XL2720Z

Nice review. Will you be reviewing the ud5h?

I'm looking at that board at the moment.

Question Quick Question ...

Good review ... reading through I noticed this complaint:

"In fact the only thing we dislike is the vertical SATA ports which, regardless of price-point, are unacceptable."

Not the first time I've seen this but as a newb I have no idea why this is a problem ... can anyone elucidate? Thanks, in advance.

It's just a matter of making the computer looking cleaner/better cable management and with vertical SATA ports you can't do it as easy. Performance is exactly the same if you were worried by that.

Looks nice, but I have to say I have lost some confidence in Gigabyte recently. Their UEFI bios upgrades for slightly older boards (which are admittedly Beta..) are junk with less functionality than the BIOS. Also, after 3 years of service my GA-Z68XP-UD3 shat itself for no good reason.

I know all manufacturers have boards that fail, but it does cause you to lose confidence when it happens to you personally. DOA is sometimes expected and accepted, but a failure after a few years...

.. I digress, good review TTL.
