  • newegg OC-Touch OC-Touch enables overclockers to quickly and easily get the best performance from their system. Onboard OC-Touch buttons allow overclockers to manually adjust the CPU ratio, BCLK settings as well as adjustments to the BCLK stepping ratio, to either 1MHz or 0.1MHz increments. These changes can be made in real-time, whether in BIOS, DOS, or Windows without the need for rebooting, so that users can quickly fine-tune their system and find their CPU's maximum frequency. Onboard voltage measurement modules are also included to help users to conveniently monitor individual component voltages and onboard LN2 Mode switch allows users to quickly drop CPU frequency to x16 multiplier during extreme overclocking so that opening benching applications such as CPU-Z will not cause the overclock to fail.
  • newegg Onboard mSATA Support GIGABYTE 7 series motherboards feature an onboard mSATA slot allowing users to easily take advantage of advanced SSD-based technologies like Intel Smart Response and Intel Rapid Start.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is the motherboard for you!

Pros: Excellent quality in the build. I have not had a problem with it. Has integrated video card that can be utilized until one can purchase a graphics card or if one is between them (e.g. graphics card is getting fixed). If over clocking is on the agenda, this is perfect as it has many options to do so. It is capable of over clocking everything from CPU,graphics card, and even ram. It offers every choice known to do this. Has a lot of info on how the computer is doing in BIOS in the event a cooling issue arises, if one needs to track down an issue.

Cons: Not enough sata ports. Maybe I am asking for too much, but the case I have has 3 drive bays, and 13 hard drive bays. I would love to utilize all of these one day, but having 10 sata slots cuts down on the options. Also only enough ports to support 2 additional usb cards (I use the to get USB in the front and can only use 4 of the 6 available because of this limitation.

Other Thoughts: Overall I give it kudos for all of the ports for everything given. When I purchased this motherboard, I had adding a ton of HDD's and SSD's in mind. Also the Quality of craftsmanship I can not say enough about. Kudos on that.

5 out of 5 eggsWANT!

Pros: Well, how else can I put that this is, spec wise, the best LGA 1155 board on the market, or at least Newegg right now. Being the only board with 3x 16?! Even one of the few that is at least 2x 16. Outstanding, I have no plans to upgrade my i7-2600k anytime soon and this board will help me live knowing I can do optimal 3-way SLI. The beauty to the board is outstanding as well. This can also be $299 with the rebate card. *sigh* I wish I could give you guys my money right now.

Cons: It's not in my arms receiving the love I'd like to give it.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, durable!

Pros: Amazing motherboard. Overclocked my CPU to a stable 5.0GHZ! Amazing power, beautiful 3D BIOS. One of the best boards I have ever owned!

Cons: I was having trouble with one section of my RAM not working. I had contacted the manufacture due to it not booting up when I placed the extra 16GB I had. They told me to inspect the board by checking the motherboard CPU socket for any bent/broken pins. Unfortunately there was several bent pins including 2 broken.

Other Thoughts: Despite the fact it had broken pins, I'm shocked how durable this thing was. I wouldn't consider an extra 16GB to be important, but I did pay for that RAM. For you gamers out there, I recommend this board!

1 out of 5 eggsSuch a Darn Shame

Pros: Lots of PCI-E slos, great OC Controls.

Cons: Head aches from step one. I changed out a Sabertooth Z77 for this, and everything worked fine with the Sabertooth. Now, my rig crashes all the time, then goes into a persistent boot, but will never post. I can clear CMOS, no boot. Remove all the peripherals, no boot, change out the RAM, no boot. Re-seat the CPU, no Boot. Remove the GPUs, no boot. Its the weirdest thing, If i let it sit for a few hours, it will work again. The CPU temps top out at 40, and I'm not pushing the GPUs. This Mobo is s HUGE let down. It was my dream board. I wouldn't have been so mad, but Gigabyte tech support is not responding, and I spent a nice amount of money on this useless Mobo. Sticking with Asus in the Future.

Other Thoughts: If it aint broke (Sabertooth Z77) dont fix it(UP7)

3 out of 5 eggsCould be better

Pros: 2x 16x PCI-E slots
great OC capability (Keep my 3570K @ 4.2ghz for long life.)
nice bios inferface

Cons: my 2nd board needing RMA

Other Thoughts: 1st board was great till I connected the PLX supplemental power connector. Then I could only use the native 16x slots. The MB was fantastic till then. Newegg was great @ swapping the 1st unit out. But the new unit's 16x slot didn't work 1st time out. The SLI slots work most of the time now but I have had an occasion to require at least 5 reboots to see video. Both of my GTX670 4g FTW+ EVGA cards work singly in my old system just fine. I use it when I don't have this one up. Thank goodness! And I have a 26 & 27" monitors and it's the same on both of them whether I use the HDMI or DVD-D connectors so I know it's the MB I'm sorry to say. I know this is a fantastic product and I drew the short straw to start with. I'm sure Gigabyte will stand behind their product.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing MoBo

Pros: This board is perfect combo with i7 3770K Ivy Bridge CPU. It fit great in a Corsair 600T case and the Corsair H100i water cooler installed easily. Color scheme is great too and looks awesome.

Cons: None really at this time, but it should be noted that this board is large and as a result does not allow you to setup push / pull with H100i in the 600T case.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Top of the line board!

Pros: Still one of the best boards out there that I can see!

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: I had a typo here last time, I meant to say they changed out the USB 2.0's for all USB 3.0's which nice.

5 out of 5 eggsTop of the line board!

Pros: Finally decided to go all out on my computer build! I recently purchased the Z77X-UP7, I liked the color scheme of Black and orange however this one isn't meant to be OC as I know gigabyte's older model had a black and orange made just for overclocking. The board itself is incredible 4 way sli/cfx, mSata, included bluetooth and wifi, and anything else you can ask for.

Cons: Board is somewhat pricey but you get what you pay for, and this board is well worth it. Not only that this top end board is cheaper then other competitor's flagship models.

Other Thoughts: This board can do almost anything you throw at it. They got ride of all the USB 3.0's and opted for all USB 3.0. You never know when you will need another 3.0 Port.

3 out of 5 eggsincomplete

Pros: Rated ability to do well against Asus and ASRock. I passed up on Maximus V Extreme and the Extreme 11 for this board. I am very disappointed with it.

Cons: I regularly crash these days. First thought it was my memory, tested it and was fine, tried new mem. kept crashing. I now believe it's the bios - but I have the most current, although it is not easy. Not a fan of Gigabyte online support website... very difficult to use imo. Gigabyte simply told me it was my ram, when I searched around I found no answer for this as this board isn't popular.

Another problem I'm encountering is that the included GC-WB300D WiFi/Bluetooth card has problems (no Bluetooth) with Windows 8- even after downloading and installing the very latest drivers (as of early December, 2012) from the Gigabyte web site. Gigabyte Customer Support was unable to help with this problem.

I'm going back to ASUS or AsRock.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte doesn't have solutions to their products problems and will pass it off to you as your mistake. For that alone I will never buy another product from them
