This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Running this board with an Intel 980x and 12gb (6x 2gb) G.SKILL PIS PC3-19200 RAM air cooled with a V10 cooler. Overclocked easily to 3.6GHz. Absolutely certain I could go further but haven't spent the time adjusting frquencies and voltages to push it. I originally had the same problem that Ken (posted 4/6 had) but came to realize it was from pushing my BCLK to high. Brought it down a bit and everything is working perfectly. Great board with great features and as always with Gigabyte it is easily overclocked. I've been running Gigabyte boards for my last 3 upgrades (yearly) and haven't had any issues.
Cons: Poor location for SATA connectors. The should have had them standing on the board rather than pointing sideways off the edge of the board. Would have made making SATA connections so much easier. A little patience and time got me past that dilemna. This shouldn't be an item that prevents you from deciding to purchase this board.READ FULL REVIEW
