GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Socket 1150, PCIe 3.0, Can handle 32GB DDR3, Has m.2, enough SATA3 ports, it is black, no funky colors on ports/slots/adapters, No useless (Killer) NIC, no more PATA on motherboard

Cons: It did not come with a kitchen sink.

Other Thoughts: Awesome upgrade from my venerable GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 ( Will relegate this to a home server/NAS some time later. ]

Current SOHO/Game:
This Mainboard
Intel i5 4690k
Arctic7 cooler
16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
Sapphire 5850 (next upgrade - ths mobo has more breathing room for it, though (PCIe 1.x to 3.x))

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Still running for nearly 8 years 07/10/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Gigabyte raid works. Takes an Intel SSD 730 240GB drive that was installed last Spring. Sapphire 5850 codmw version is still working after six years. Room for eight sata drives, even though it is only SATA II.

Cons: Wish that the 16x PCIe was 2.1 and NOT 1.1

Other Thoughts: May relegate this as a server board, but will need SATA III and not SATA II, but I digress.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5850 100282-3CODSR 1GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Durability - longest I have had a video card in a PC. Able to manually overclock and control fan. It is keeping up with my games, so far.

Cons: Minor issues with Eyefinity as noted by past posts. Issue seems to be fine as I play LOTRO with three 22 inch monitors. Must be the newer drivers from AMD.

Have not updated to the 15.7 driver - yet.

Other Thoughts: WIll keep this in my next build until the R9 cards come down in price after the new Fury cards come out in a few days. Hopefully by then I will have my newer i5 system ready for this old, but still working video card.
