5 out of 5 eggsFine Z97 Motherboard

Pros: This is an excellent Motherboard, filled with a lot of features but certainly not the highest price Z97 offering. The board is solid, looks fantastic, and has a 5 year warranty. You get a solid mix of up to date and legacy ports/slots in this Motherboard. Fired up at once with a i7-4790K CPU and 2 X 8 Gbs of Crucial 1600 RAM. I still like having the dual LAN ports on the back, and the dual BIOS in case you really go crazy on one BIOS. The board feels quite heavy, and is not prone to much flex like I have observed on other more expensive boards. There is some peace of mind knowing that the board was fully tested before you opened up the box. I really enjoyed testing some of the support Software applications, and am finding them more useful then a gimmick. It is fantastic that this board has an application to be able to switch board SATA settings from AHCI to RAID and back, on an already OS loaded system, on the fly. Very impressive. I did not find anything that did not work on this Motherboard. I received a 1.1 Version of this board, loaded with the F6 BIOS. There is an F7 (Beta) BIOS, if you are thinking of using a PCIe X 4 SSD, in a PCIe 3.0 slot. I did not test out the on board sound, as I am using an HT Omega Fenix discrete Sound Card.

Cons: Any cons to this board, I was already aware of, due to taking my time with the research. The USB 3.0 port location and front port cable will almost certainly block the view of the numeric code read out, (in a windowed Case). Having most of the fan ports on the bottom is kind of a pain. The manual could have been a little better detailed on the features, and while the BIOS looks really cool and is totally functional, I prefer the layout of other suppliers UEFI BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Make no mistake, in that this is a true Enthusiast motherboard. There are enough adjustments to fry your components into the next Century, if that is your thing. I would buy this again. One thing to beware of, and that is the CPU Core voltage is a little "high" just out of the box, measuring 1.3 Volts. That is way too high if you are not overclocking and using water cooling. I forgot to mention, that there are even test voltage points on this Motherboard, but you will need a steady hand with your probes to test, as they are quite small. While there is not a lot of "bling" on this board, (lighted on board "Start" button, lighted led separation path for the on board sound), I think this is an incredible value for a Z97 board. I do not feel like I am missing something that other, much higher priced boards have. Need Wi Fi connection? I will buy the Wi Fi card. Please keep in mind that you only have 16 PCIe Lanes on this Motherboard, so if you do plan to go Nvidia SLI, you will not be able to use any other PCIe slots. This is my first Gigabyte Motherboard purchase, as I usually go with the big "A" brand, but I am very happy with this purchase that I am using for my new home build. No regrets.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: So far works as described

Cons: None noticed so yet

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte, Black, 2 RJ-45's, 5-year warranty, 3-year upgrade option...what's not to like-

This was an upgrade from a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P with an E8400 and G.Skill 1100 (PC2 8800) RAM overclocked to 4.0GHZ which has worked flawlessly since Feb. 2010-

2 out of 5 eggsBIOS seems to still be an issue?

Pros: Listed feature set; prolonged testing; expandable/availability of slots and ports; number of fan headers (with somewhat of good placement)

Cons: Apparently the BIOS isn't always up to snuff...
I've used the most current F6, the F7g beta, and even gone back to the F5 for comparison. In NONE of these situations has the CPU multiplier been able to be adjusted.

Other Thoughts: This new build includes this mobo and a 4790K. For almost two weeks I've tried variations to enable the CPU multiplier to be anything other than 40. No matter what I've tried, multiple third party software in Win7 Pro all conclude that the multiplier is never anything other than 40. Unless power saving features are enabled and then things throttle down as appropriate. Other settings I make to the BIOS, CPU freq; core voltage; manual or XMP memory changes - they all reflect correctly in Windows. But never the multiplier... Don't know if i'm going to return it for another Gigabyte brand or try someone else...

1 out of 5 eggsNewegg RMA BLOWS

Pros: ASUS Z97 Pro

Cons: UD5H DOA no POST Code A6/A9

Other Thoughts: Newegg cost me an extra 50 bucks on my build because of their return shipping charges and deducting discounts for the RMA. Hey, Newegg, news flash, YOU SENT A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT. You could have worked with me and split the difference since I've spent THOUSANDS of dollars with you over the past few years, but you were greedy over 50 bucks...I tried calling and resolving this, but your reps were not willing to compromise. I hope others see this and shop elsewhere. I know I will.

5 out of 5 eggsWilling to pay more for less problems

Pros: Other than one strip of bad memory this new build worked out perfect
error code C0 was bad memory once taken out everything ran perfect

Cons: More of a detailed list of code errors and what they mean
using a search engine works fine for looking up error codes but I would like a detailed manual

Other Thoughts: I have never went cheap with a motherboard for myself and have never regretted it

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a great board

Pros: I put this MB in a mid-tower and it went in without a hitch. Everything hooked up and the BIOS is excellent and easy to use for anyone with some knowledge.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsTricky wording and slick marketing

Pros: -The overclocking stuff and BIOS options are immense, this is a great mobo for that from what I can see, was able to get my 4790K up to 4.7 but it doesn't feel too different to warrant pushing it above the stock/turbo boost specs.
-It's pretty.

Cons: The bad thing about this board, which took me way too long to figure out, is that the UDH5 model shares the 3rd PCI-E 3.0 bandwidth with the 2nd slot, making this board run at x8/x4/x4 and defeating 2 way SLI with a dedicated physx card. There is no way to run 3 nVidia cards in any useful way at all. If you want to run x8/x8/x4 you need the UDH3 board which has a 2.0x16 slot on the bottom that doesn't share bandwidth, allowing you to effectively run 2 way SLI and a dedicated physx card.

I guess this board has extremely fine print because gigabyte never emailed me back a response to what I guess would be "obvious" with its poorly written and worded documentation. If they would have just right out said its a 8/4/4 mobo instead of saying "The PCIEX4 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX8 and PCIEX16 slots. When the PCIEX4 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode and the PCIEX8 will operate at up to x4 mode" caveat, I wouldn't have to be here warning possible nvidia purchasers to stay away from this UDH5 and go with a UDH3 or an ASUS Z97 Pro.

Other Thoughts: I just don't understand why Gigabyte would offer a newer/higher "version" of this board with less capabilities, it just doesn't make sense that you would offer a mobo with 3 PCI-Ex16 slots but they can only run x8/x4/x4 when the "lesser" model can do x8/x8/x4. I'm slightly heartbroken that I paid $40 more for less. If you guys are reading this, I'd gladly trade in this mobo for a UDH3, you can keep the $40.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat board, update your firmware

Pros: best mobo i have ever owned. i like it better than ASUS or ASRock.

Cons: needed to update firmware (to F7f) for my Samsung XP941 to work. not the best support for this particular M.2 SSD drive.

1 out of 5 eggsbad system fan headers and bios issues with k SKU processors

Pros: It didn't get stepped on in shipping

Cons: 2 of the system fan headers don't work. Board is essentially garbage for my purpose as result and newegg is going to charge me for return shipping which is terrible customer service. If I go through gigabyte then I'll just get a refurb . either way I played for a functioning board and didnt get one.

Other Thoughts: I've bought gigabye boardboards for my last three builds , this will likely be my last though.
