This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP7 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
still TONS of connectivity....
DOES DELIVER STABLE POWER
significantly more expensive than its competitors......
wouldnt push my mushkin redlines past 2400mhz...(both my asrock formula 0C and my brothers max5gene did with a 3570)
official apology....what i deemed instability by the power regulators (which i had observed when we tried to o/c with GB's UP5 as well) turned out not to be the case....after burning out in a blaze of glory(literally) i swapped in a SS 860w platinum and proceeded to hit 5100MHz on an ivy bridge i5....a personal high for that particular chip......and passed all stability tests accordingly....
so i can happily report it seems as though gigabyte DID has out its issues with the new v-regs...
however....they're really only a cppl deg. cel. on average cooler than either of the other boards accessible to me
