Gigabyte X58A-UD7 Review

maximum pc
9 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Want to know how insane the enthusiast motherboard bracket has become? Gigabyte’s X58A-UD7 seems pedestrian next to the other two contenders here. Sure, it has a rakish, liquid-cooling-ready heat pipe to keep the north bridge chilled out, but frankly, without that Hybrid Silent-Pipe 2 in place, the board is damn near boring next to its contemporaries. Where’s the dual 8-pin supplemental CPU power connectors?
  • Pros: Fast and without being a showoff.
  • Cons: Heat pip makes it difficult to remove GPUs.

  • Summary: The X58A-UD7 is GIGABYTE\'s newest entry into the fiercely competitive LGA1366 board arena. The board packs a lot of promise, built on GIGABYTE\'s tried and true X58 based design with some nice bells and whistles added for that extra bit of appeal including USB 3.0 and SATA III features.

  • Conclusion: When we first saw a prototype of what was to become the X58A-UD7, it was hard not to be impressed since it had a massive 24-phase power design and support for SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0. When this model was finally revealed in retail form, we were glad to see that it hadn't lost any of what made it unique, and had actually gained an additional PCI-E x16 slot, which placed it among rarified company in the motherboard realm.
  • Pros: - Solid performance., - Convenient layout., - 4 mechanical PCI-E x16 slots., - 3-Way CrossFireX & 3-Way SLI capability (Quad CrossFireX also possible)., - Impressive overclocking capabilities., - Next-generation 24-phase power design., - Very good voltage regulation & output., - Surprisingly power efficient., - Supports SATA 6Gb/s & USB 3.0, - Easy to use, option-rich BIOS., - Dual BIOS chips., - Comprehensive software suite., - Cooling systems works well, but...
  • Cons: -...the northbridge cooler is oddly designed and too big., - Doesn't support four dual-slot graphics cards., - No integrated bluetooth to take full advantage of the bluetooth-based software utilities., - Memory overclocking could be a tiny bit better., - No voltage read points., - Not enough temperature and voltage readouts in the BIOS and EasyTune., - Large CPU coolers + tall memory heatspreaders can cause installation annoyances.

  • Conclusion: It's one for real enthusiasts only, but with both SATA/600 and USB 3, the stratospheric price may just be worth paying
