GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works fine in standard overclocking....standard 1600mhz RAM if all 8 Dimms populated .... XMP profile not accurate ..... do manual !!! ( above 1600mhz ) !

Cons: This is NOT an overclockers board at all.... might get LUCKY with a 4.3 with a I7-4930k Hexa-core ! Might have better luck with a 4820 or the 3XXX series. Will not run all 8 Dimms of high speed RAM at speeds..... if you popuate them all be prepared toleave XMP off and do it manually at probably 1600mhz RAM.... 2133 or 2400 will not happen ! Even found a F7 Bios with added functionality.... still a no go ! If your not into overclocking or running high speed RAM....this board will be fine.
See other thoughts !

Other Thoughts: Wanted to RMA this board thinking it was the board itself... it is not...... 90% of people I have forumed with has had same problem. Not a Hi-Perf board !
Like I said was going to RMA it but New Egg would just send the same board back ...whats the point of that ?
Purchased another brand from another site and now my 4930k screams at 4.6ghz with all 1866mhz RAM running perfect. Do not buy this board if you are a power user ! If you have a 4820 or 3820 with regular RAM and run at stock it will do you fine. Mine is just an emergency $250 back-up and wasted $$$ due to non support from Gigabyte mainly.... NewEgg at least offered to "replace" it ! Why replace junk with junk ???? A-S-U-S if you want your 4930K and memory to run at rated speed and well above ! 30+hours trying with this .... 15 minutes with other brand.... ULTIMATE !

Pros: Wanted black...perfect length !

Cons: The L connector is upside down if you are connecting an optical drive or actually anything.... your cable will be pointing up then ...backwards.... looks silly and bad for cable management ! Replaced already with quality rounded cables with the right orientation ! Thankfully they were only $4 a cable....just tossed them in my parts department ! LOL

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: There isn't any !

Cons: They listed this in my my review and I replied with details.... no response from them OR Gigabyte eSupport !
They just don't care or they do not know how to fix it or they are upset because they are selling bad boards with features that are no lonfer supported like 3D Bios ( new version 1.1 with F5 bios does not have 3D bios it is not supported ) !!!!!!
