The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H features four DIMM slots for up to 32GB of RAM. Using the chipset's dual-channel memory architecture, it supports frequencies of 1066, 1333 and 1600MHz, while 2133, 2400 and 2800MHz are possible through overclocking. Whereas the Z77 chipset provides six SATA ports (two 6Gb/s), Gigabyte includes two Marvell 88SE9172 6Gb/s controllers for another four ports.
Lots of SATA3 and USB 3.0.
Four video outputs.
MSATA connector for onboard SSD.
Fan control should be better.
Need extra hardware to leverage all the USB ports.
PCI slot blocked if you use a second graphics card.
