Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and not 50+% of their MBs and components my computer mnaufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out. Stay away and go with MSI, Asus, and ASRock. Much more reliable for current times. We have dropped GB as a product supplier from our entire business.

Summary: Have had this for bit now, and this thing is EASILY the worst mobo I have ever used. Impossible to download and work-around drivers on a pos website using a worthless "download center", constantly crashing USB support to my front nodes, killing two hard drives due to randomly not shutting down or starting up properly - the list goes on and on.
They shipped a different motherboard in a GA-Z68XP-UD3 box
13 January 2014
Summary: This review is more about the seller than the product. I have two other GA-Z68XP-UD3's that work perfectly. I don't know what shape this one was in as they shipped me a Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 in the GA-Z68XP-UD3 box with all of the accessories for a GA-Z68XP-UD3. Since the GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 is a lower end motherboard with fewer features I wasn't going to keep that.
Summary: I finally decided I hate it enough to post feedback. The blue screen of death has occurred for probably over 50 times. After the first 2, I decided to make sure to save everything (opened docs, etc) immediately after making changes, so I've been able to tolerate the blue screen. I now call this board the Gigabyte Blue Death. I overclock using the included software Easy Tune6, but if I would have known that overclocking would be an issue, I would not have purchased it.
Summary: This was my second time around with gigabyte. the first one didn't work and this one I could not even get the monitor to respond. Junked it, purchased an MSI product which worked right out of the box. Never again for Gigabyte.
Bought it for SLI, Intel Smart Response tech. BIOS and "feature" software aren't very good.

Summary: I've been using this motherboard for over a year now. I have a i5 2500k, 2 GTX 550Ti video cards, a small SSD, and several hard drives attached to it, as well as 2 4GB RAM modules. I bought this board because it was a good price for a board that featured SLI support and ISRT (using a small SSD as a cache). Those features work well.
Awesome motherboard that will exceed anyone's expectations!

Summary: This, like all of the Gigabyte boards I've used over the past 5 year, has been great! I use this in conjunction with a 2700K and 2 GTX 670's in SLI and I couldn't be happier. I've been running the 2700K at 4.8Ghz (1.395v) for almost 2 years and I have never had a single issue. I did update the BIOS with each revision and I currently just started using the UEFI.
Summary: I have been running this board for over a year. Works great. Key feature to me is the 8sata headers (6-sata2,2-sata6) and 4 RAM slots. The only thing I would get different in future was it only has the z68 chip-set, and with my i5 I wish I went ahead and spent the money on a board with the z77 chip-set.
Summary: Well Installed the MB and seemed to work got 1 beep which means good boot up to Post Bios Screen, tried 2 different keyboards and could not get into bios. Then it just started rebooting. I Checked online and known problems with same issues. Looks like this might be fixed with the z77 chips. I really like Gigabyte MB's! Have been using them for last 6yrs with no problems so i have ordered the Z77-ud3h board waiting on it to reinstall. Hope this helps you!
