Gigabyte GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI Review
30 July 2013
Excerpt: When vendors previewed the first X79 motherboards in 2011, we were floored by the boatload of SATA ports. Rather than the wimpy six SATA ports (only two of which were SATA 6Gb/s) Intel chipsets usually gave us, the X79 was a he-man’s chipset with a heaping serving of 12 ports.
Pros: Surprisingly affordable; tons of storage options.
Cons: SAS is touchy; utilities need performance overhaul.
