Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H ReviewPosted on 2012-04-23 19:27:35 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The UD5 variant of the Gigabyte line of motherboards is one of the most popular, providing the perfect balance between features and affordability. So we are unlikely to find a better candidate to perform our first Core i7-3770K overclocking tests on. Now rather than go through some big preamble to explain things you've only just read in the Core i7-3770K/Intel DZ77GA-70K review we'll crack on with what the Gigabyte UD5 brings to the table. The most obvious change is that, currently at least, there isn't a UD7 model around, or even on the drawing board. So this is the premium model in the Gigabyte Z77 range. For those of us who loved either the gold and black heatsinks of the Z68 UD7, or the black and orange of the X79 UD7, this is quite disappointing. But we know the UD5 has a lot of charm of its own without necessarily having the bling factor.
