GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs DOA, same issue as everyone else 09/18/2013

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

Pros: Couldn't tell you.

Cons: Board was DOA. Same boot loop "power up, shutdown before post, power up, shutdown before post" issue as everyone else.

The issue seems common enough that I'd avoid this board entirely.

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Memory for Apple Model FA-8500CL7D-8GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I can now run 2-3 Virtual Machines & Adobe Photoshop simultaneously without major drop in performance.

Memory was easy to install on 15" MacBook Pro. (Thanks iFixit!)

Packaging was good and both modules were tightly sealed. Shipping box & packing foam was more than adequate for shipping.

Cons: Nothing unexpected. Hibernate/restore takes longer due to having to copy larger RAM contents to/from the hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy this to increase speed, so it came as no surprise that the standard OS and general usability were pretty much the same as with 4GB of RAM. Where having 8GB really shines is with heavy and extensive multitasking, such as being able to run Photoshop, Chrome and several VMWare Virtual Machines at the same time without too much swap use.
