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: Built a new gaming rig off of this motherboard. Was working great, not a problem in sight. Turned off the computer for a long weekend away three months into its life, came home and the computer refused to turn on. Figured the PSU might have been the problem, so I replaced that first. With a brand new PSU, it was still not receiving any power. This motherboard just stopped working with no warning after three months. Awful.
Summary: When powered on, went into an infinite boot loop. It was occasionally possible to enter into BIOS, but could not get a USB or PS2 keyboard to work at all and automatic reboot would occur after about 5-10 seconds. Research online indicated that this is a common issue to do with the BIOS version being incompatible with Ivy Bridge processors.
Summary: Un composant a cramé au bout d'un an d'utilisation, d'un coût de 6€ mais impossible à racheter à l'unité, même en ligne directement en Chine. Le réparateur chez qui je suis allé m'a dit qu'il recevait beaucoup de gigabytes défectueuses et m'a conseillé l'achat d'une carte ASUS.
