1 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Motherboard Defective

Pros: It had the thunderbolt port.

Cons: It was defective with a sticky mouse which leads to a locked up computer from day one. The problem is exemplified if I have anything in the USB 3.0 ports on the front of the computer or the 3.0 USB top ports on the back of the computer. The problem keeps getting worse. I'll have to replace the board. Gigabyte was unhelpful, when I first contacted them. I was out of the month return policy, and they said try different mouse/ keyboard. I've read enough reviews that this is a common issue with this particular board. I would not recommend it.

1 out of 5 eggsUSB mouse / keyboard issues

Pros: It was my first computer build and everything went well, and the board seemed easy to work with. And beside the below issue it has been flawless. I'm hoping Gigabyte can trouble shoot my below issue. Although reading reviews it seems like it might be a common issue with this board.

Cons: Since my first boot, the mouse would stick. I didn't think too much of it. Then on a bad, day the mouse will stick, freeze, the keyboard cuts out and you have to do a hard reset. This is completely horrible as you can imagine when your machine locks up . . . it so inconsistent and all over the map it puts me on edge. Now, having read many reviews, it looks like this is a common problem for this mobo. I hope the manufacture will replace it, or help me trouble shoot the issue.

Other Thoughts: Build.

Besides the sticky mouse / freeze of mouse keyboard everything has been great.

3 out of 5 eggsIt requires some efforts to install Win7.

Pros: High quality mother boards and many features.

Cons: Well, this comes with USB3.0 only which will caused problem when you install Win 7 and found out both USB mouse and keyboard do not work thru the design plug-in port. I have find a PS/2 keyboard and use tab key to install VIA 3.0 driver and reboot to make them work. The mSATA port is SATAII which most of the mSATA is SATA III, doesn't make sense. PCIe 2.0 is another feature that you will not use.

Other Thoughts: OC feature from Gigabyte is very easy to use, but lack of system monitoring utility software.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA!!!! Replacement on its way.....

Pros: -The board has many i/o's including usb 3.0 thunderbolt etc
- the layout of the board is nice if you are going for a "color schemed" build
- Accessories that come with the board (including SATA cables are of nice quality

NO POST! NOTHING! the gpu, cpu cooler, and power supply fans just turned on for 1 second and then shut off!
(Checked all i could and determined the problem was the motherboard itself!)

Other Thoughts: It just happened to be my luck to receive a DOA motherboard, especially when im bulding my first high-performance gaming rig. I will do an update on the review once the 2nd UP4-TH arrives and i hopefully get my system up and running. Gigabyte makes outstanding products and I just happened to receive a faulty one! Its just a bummer how much time it wastes during the RMA process!

System Specs:
PSU-EVGA Nex650g
Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-Z77x UP4-TH
CPU- Intel i5 3570k
CPU Cooler- Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO
RAM-Kingstom Hyper X Black 1600mhz

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your comments. Honest and constructive opinions are always welcome. We apologize for your difficulty with your GIGABYTE product.

When you get your replacement MB, please carefully install your CPU/heatsink following the Intel guidelines as shown in the User Manual. Then install a single DIMM module, and power supply on to a bench or non-conductive platform outside of the chassis. Power on to test for a post. Please keep in mind that everytime components are added or removed, the next power-on, the motherboard may appear to reset several times before posting. This is part of the UEFI BIOS auto detection of hardware components and normal. Once you see a post screen, you may power off, and install to your chassis for your system build.

If you require further assistance, please contact us at with the case number 2013062502 in the subject line.

Please contact our Live Technical Support at 626-854-9338, option 3 if the matter is urgent.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat... at first

Pros: This MoBo is everything as advertised. i'm a big fan... until i noticed something way later on

Cons: At first i was a huge fan of this MoBo... i still am! but when i recently wanted to install my second graphics card after a few months of owning this MoBo... i discovered that the second PCI slot has an issue. Poor quality control i presume. Anyways so far i haven't been able to get any GPUs to work in it and it's a HUGE bummer. I don't believe it deserve a low egg rating for this because other than that and up until now... it's been great!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board! Gigabyte FTW

Pros: All USB3, Solid board, Gigabyte constructed board.

Cons: None, Its gigabtye, of course its going to work.

Other Thoughts: Working with 3570k flawlessly, The board didn't come "DOA" because I didnt take the board out on carpet after running around on it a couple times and expect it to work.

4 out of 5 eggsWow what another gigabtye product

Pros: All USB3, Dual thunderbolt (if your doing hackintosh), No issues with usb controller or sata controller. Also has msata.

Cons: None. It didnt "come DOA" because I know what esd is and its kinda hard to mess this board up unless you dont know how to install a board.

Other Thoughts: Yeh I been reading for months how "bad" this board is but I been using the same gigabtye motherboard for 6 years without and issue and decided it was time to upgrade. Runs a 3570k without any issues and even automatically down clocked my 1866 memory to 1600 without much issue. Gigabtye is a good company and I think some people that complain about the board should go to some other company --->msi. Because Ive used msi mobos, they last....for like 2 years

4 out of 5 eggsZ77X-UP4TH

Pros: This is a great overclocking motherboard. the first one I had lasted 5 days reason for 1 less egg, Newegg was great and sent me out another motherboard. I have had no problems with this board. Does not have as many features as some of the other boards but does what I need it for. have not tried the thunderbolt yet. overclocks better than the my other motherboard Z68X-UD3H-B3. the 3D bios is a little awkward but once you figure out the quirks its alright.

Cons: First board died after 5 days

Other Thoughts: I7 2600K @ 4.8 GHZ
8 GB Dominator GT ram @ 2133 MHZ

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Board, Poor Support

Pros: Lots and lots of USB 3.0 Ports

Thunderbolt ports help me be tech-proof if that standard becomes as successful as it could be (helpful because I run in a half-mac ecosystem, and apple is really pushing the tech)

BIOS is easy to work in

POST is fast

Cons: Only USB3.0 ports on the back -- spent a long time debugging an issue where windows couldn't see any USB ports. Eventually traced it to the fact that windows 7 doesn't have USB 3.0 drivers installed by default; I had to plug my keyboard / mouse into the case-side ports. Thankfully I had NOT upgraded to a case that used USB 3.0 ports.

Possibly related, but I have a minor issue with my USB inputs. Every once in a while, averaging about once per day, my USB controls (keyboard and mouse) freeze for a few seconds. Originally this took the form of my keyboard 'sticking' on a key while typing. The result would turn 'typing something' into 'typiiiiiiiiiiiiething' -- one key would act as if it was held down, and then it would skip over several of the ones I typed before I noticed the freeze. Over the last few days (just got back from a short trip) this has transmuted into a more frequent (and thus easier to debug) issue where all USB controls freeze for a few seconds, rather than a key appearing to stick. I improved the issue by installing the latest USB drivers from their site (which completely solved a second issue of USB devices being lost and immediately re-found, as if all of them had been unplugged and then replugged), but I still see occasional incidents of it. It's hard to debug because of it's infrequency (though it's latest transformation might make this easier), and it might be an interaction with my 'smart' peripherals or the KVM switch I use to switch between machines. Hard to test with something that doesn't occur on demand.

Moderately detailed manual is missing several critical sections -- it's only help regarding POST beep codes was to check a later chapter that did NOT have a list of BEEP codes. There is, as far as I could tell, no available reference material describing the beep codes the motherboard uses to report when POST fails. A lucky google search turned up that someone else had determined that a long period of repeated, fast beeps was a memory issue, or I might not have solved the issue yet.

RAID slows the boot cycle considerably. I spend more time in the RAID initialization screen than any other part of the boot up process. Annoying, because I boot from the SSD, *not* my RAID data array.

Other Thoughts: I have a number of complaints, but the board seems to be settling in nicely and I would definitely buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Board

Pros: This board feels very sturdy and it has the perfect feature set. I have had few problems with this board (see cons). the drivers were easy to install, however I would do a custom instal to avoid the pesky 3rd party software as I did. The whole build was a breeze, even though it was my first build.

Cons: I have had a few USB problems from the VIA chipset but that was easily fixed be reinstalling the driver from the Gigabyte website. Also, it gave me a fit instaling Ubuntu but that is probobly due to my lack of knowledge with it.
