  • Pros: This was the best MOBO purchase I've ever bought... Absolutely fantastic, it even has the option to run UEFI Bios if you flash it from Gigabyte's website. Also its a great MOBO to run Mountain Lion on :P
  • Cons: There is an issue where the keyboard and mouse does not work with the standard BIOS, if you flash it to the new UEFI bios this bug goes away.

Nice board

Kyle H., Newegg
3 June 2012
  • Pros: Good board. Ubuntu detected and installed the drivers automatically.
  • Cons: Windows did not detect the drivers automatically. This means that only a few USB ports worked until the drivers were installed so during bios if your keyboard/mouse doesn't work try plugging them into another USB slot. Other than that it went fine. The cpu lever/clamp was awfully tight, but that'...

everyone says its bad

  • Summary: Love the color setup goes well with the setup I already had
  • Pros: Runs like a champ,I run a 10000 rpm drive and this board and windows 7 and everything else my system runs at a nice 23c idle. I did not even have to re install windows. Went from a MSI p67 chipset to this and no probs running so far

Dawn F., Newegg

  • Summary: This board is expensive but I have never regretted buying it. People have complained about double boot loops but mine has worked flawlessly since day 1. Entire board looks slick and professional
  • Pros: Has every feature you could possibly ever need Supports crossfire/SLI with room for extra cards too Plenty of SATA ports Black looks deep on pcb unlike ASRock boards
  • Cons: Never had a problem with this board

No issues

  • Summary: Doesn't give me that special feeling like my old abit nf7-s or dfi ultra-d. love the black simple colors
  • Pros: Just thought I would leave a positive review since I have had nothing but good experiences the past year. I bought it I've used several SSDs / HDDs, different ram setups, with a 4.8 24/7 2500k.

GA-Z68XP-UD4 Review

Kneng V., Newegg
30 April 2012
  • Summary: I'm still gonna keep using Gigabyte board and hopefully I don't get a bad one.
  • Pros: I'm a Gigabyte guy and several of my computers were built on Gigabyte boards. This is my latest one and overall, I like the performance except one thing.....
  • Cons: The one thing I don't like is the SATA connectors. They were built facing side way instead of vertical. It's quite hard to snap my SATA cable in. Any way, I still give Gigabyte 5 eggs.

Solid

James M., Newegg
30 April 2012
  • Summary: The new Z77 boards are said to incorporate native USB3 in the Intel chipset. However, I have had no difficulty with the many (thank you, thank you) USB3 ports in this Z68, which also provides a real 20-pin USB3 internal header. This thing has more ports than a drunken sailor.
  • Pros: Everything works. A small thing to expect, of course. Got this board because of its many ports and reportedly solid USB3 and eSATA performance. It does not disappoint. Surprisingly easy RAID setup is a bonus. About the much-maligned Marvell RAID controllers... I had no difficulty configuring a tw...
  • Cons: 1. Color coding of the provided backplane static shield makes my brain hurt. 2. Gigabyte should provide the Marvell Raid Utility *and* the OEM Marvell User Guide. Both of these are available via download from other mobo maker's web sites... C'mon, Gigabyte!

Solid Motherboard

Jerry W., Newegg
8 March 2012
  • Summary: Puzzled by GB's decision to include two PCI slots at the bottom of the board. It might have made more sense to remove one or both of those and improve spacing between the x16 and x8 PCIe slots, especially for those wanting to use a x1 discrete sound card.
  • Pros: Installation was a breeze. No strange issues with SLi disappearing when the Realtek onboard LAN is enabled or Windows hanging when the USB3.0 controller is in use. These are issues I had with the two previous brands of Z68 boards that I originally wanted to use. The PCB is thick and sturdy, notic...
  • Cons: Things I miss from other boards at this price point; onboard power and reset switches. No external Clear CMOS button. No front panel header blocks like you might find from MSI or Asus.
