Tiny Tom Logan on Overclock3D.net has just posted typically epic (32 mins plus!) and comprehensive video review of our new flagship Z77 board, the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7. And it’s fair to say that Tom is fan. Throughout the entire video he has a lot of great things to say about the board – from heatsink design, to OC performance, it’s all thumbs up. So much so that Tom and the team have deemed the board worthy of their Gold award.
Tom’s colleague and board reviewer Brian Waters has also written a full review which you can find here. Here’s a taste of what Brian had to say:
“the only conclusion we can draw from our testing of the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 is "Phew, what a scorcher"…
“…A 4.9GHz overclock from our retail CPU was stunning, and it was certainly the easiest board we've yet tested to give us the 5GHz CPUz. It wasn't a case of an overclock that was big on numbers and short on performance either. Nearly every test saw the UP7 give us the highest result we've seen on a Z77 motherboard.”
“…in case you haven't been paying attention this is the fastest motherboard we've tested. I personally would be perfectly happy to have it at the heart of my PC at home, and I can't think of a more ringing endorsement than that. So you're getting everything you could possibly desire with zero downside. A stunning performer, utterly worth of the OC3D Gold Award.”
The Z77X-UP7 uses an astonishing 32 phase power design, the latest Ultra Durable 5 technology and a host of great OC features that are designed specifically with record breaking LN2 sessions in mind. Find more details about the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 here and here.
