Summary: Okay, how to put it boldly and not too nasty, well the Z77X-UP7 is pure sex really. From A to Z the motherboard a dream solution with way too many features and options. Now I do have to make one remark here, if you stick to regular processor cooling heatpipe coolers or say LCS units like the H100 from corsair, then all 32 power-phases and component selection mean little compared to the investment you are about to make.
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 Review: Special LGA 1155 Overclocker Mainboard
26 November 2012
Summary: This mainboard has a ton of peculiarities and two major features distinguishing it from the others. The first one is an extremely powerful voltage regulator circuitry with 32 phases for the processor alone. The second one is a special individual graphics card slot, which will ensure that your single graphics card works at the highest speed possible, even though this mainboard is originally designed for multi-card graphics configurations.
Summary: Gigabyte har med GA-Z77X-UP7 kreeret et sandt monster. Det er bundkortet over dem alle. Layoutet er råt, tilbehørspakken overdådig som en 5-stjernet buffet, og OC potentialet fejler så absolut ingenting. Det eneste jeg er ked af, er den lidt svingende ydelse. Et bundkort til 2.600 kr. skal helst ligge i top 1 hele vejen igennem. Dog holder UP7 sig pænt i Top 3, i samtlige tests.
