After the UD3 through its paces for a few months, there is no doubt that this board is a great budget X79 board that can handle anything and punches above its own class. Based on the performance we have seen on this board, we do not understand why...-

The GIGABYTE UD5 was one of the first X79 motherboards we had the pleasure of testing here at Vortez. Like its X58 brethren, the X79 chipset, while inherently different hardware, provides similar overclocking values and features galore. The UD5's...-

This being Gigabyte’s lowest priced socket 2011 offering we are very impressed. Being low-cost in the socket 2011 segment is not like its socket 1155 counterpart where the low-cost boards start at around $60. This board comes in at $249, which...100
