Chris took the GIGABYTE X79-UD5 for a spin over at VR Zone and had nothing but praises for it understandably. It’s a ripper board.
The Gigabyte X79-UD5 is a good solid board. It is much improved using later BIOSes and getting better all the time, particularly on the memory side. It has a quality feature list, its efficiency is fine, it’s stable and it looks great.
