4 out of 5 eggs Good board, but has quarks 01/09/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

-mSATA slot for a card
-PS/2 port for legacy kb/m
-A bunch of sata ports. Seriously. There is a ton!
-Integrated NIC
-USB 3.0 headers
-Able to store bios profiles. Easy to recover after a bad OC attempt without having to clear CMOS

Cons:

-One of the heat sinks is fairly wobbly. Almost thought it was something else when it bent so much, but it is held in with two tabs. Not an issue if you aren't removing the system fan very often
-Beeps on a successful POST. Its fine, just a personal con. an disable it by enabling quick boot though
-SATA5 is disabled when you have a mSATA card in, which personally shouldn't happen, but then again who is going to have NINE disk drives at a time?
-Software is odd. Only thing you really need are network drivers.

Other Thoughts:

Good board none the less.
The software included is odd. Don't need anything other the the network drivers IMHO. Includes two OCing utilities, one of which crashed and upon restarting the system I had to reset my CMOS. Only utility I find useful is the fan speed control one, but again that isn't necessary unless you are OCing
