Good board with some flaws

Comments: This is an older board and can't support Intel Sandy Bridge processors, but for what it is it's actually pretty decent.

The manual is well designed, and GIGABYTE's support site is decent, although they lack a few unnecessary drivers that Windows screams about.

Box makes a great carrying case for all sort of little parts.

still works

Comments: my board is watercooled with aftermarket waterblocks. and proformance is as fast as the first LN2 scores reported when the board first came out. I have a w3690 this might also be why in the end thanks Newegg.

Worked for 2 weeks

Pros: When it was working it was fine.

Cons: After two weeks, it just failed. Screen went blank. I turned it off and then back on and nothing. It powers up and that is the extent of it. No beeps, no video, nada. So now I'm back to the drawing board trying to figure out what went wrong. So far I have swapped out the keyboard, mouse, and monitor. No help. Now it looks like the heat sink has to come off to get to the memory and see if reseating it will correct the problem. If not that, then swap out the video card. Oh I wish I bought a different motherboard!

Dead?

Pros: Does not Post, thus no Pros

Cons: The exact same issue unbiased posted: During POST, indicator run through all numbers till FF, - ready to boot up, however there is no video signal from brand new GTX 480 card (which works on a UD5) mounted on the 16XPCIe slot. One long and one short beeps during POST indicate potential problem with the motherboard.

Design is not well thought. PCIE_12 V connector is interfering with Hybrid Silent-Pipe Module

Other Thoughts: I have posted this issue on the Steam forums (nick: Alkpaz) and have sent a message to Gigabyte (alk3). I have tested the mobo on TWO PSUs and still no video, although, I get a FF on the board. I connected the PCI-E_2 molex and still nothing, had two 8 pin power connectors, 1250W and a 1000W PSUs nothing.. the processor is a i7 980x.

I will purchase another board and see if that solves the issue, if not I will just cut my losses and install my 980 in my UD5.

The best case for this mobo is the Coolermaster HAF X, as a FYI.

Non-standard board size

Pros: None

Cons: This board comes bundled with the Intel i7 950, but the discounted option fails to mention the need for a non-standard case. The XL ATX case size isn't a filter option when searching for a case menu. Seems this information should be disclosed if refunds/returns are not allowed.

Other Thoughts: Non-standard MB form factors are a problem, but especially when they provide no benefit to the user, as in the case of the UD9.

Manufacturer Response:
Thank you for your comments. Honest and constructive opinions are always welcome. We apologize for your difficulty with your Gigabyte product.

An XL-ATX sized form factor is needed to supply 7x PCIE slots on a motherboard.

Also, Newegg's website (under Details), as well as Gigabyte's website lists the form factor as XL-ATX.

If you have further questions, contact us at newegg-support@gigabyte-usa.com with the case number 2010121309 in the subject line. We will provide personalized service and analysis to help solve your issue as soon as possible.

wow too expensive

Pros: many Mosfets which will support extremely high overclock and 4 ways SLI

Cons: too small watercool inlet for the chipset
more expensive than similar feature eVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI
more expensive than eVGA Classified SR-2 which support dual core and can run one easily

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has a brand name in the industry, but has no excuse to price their product too high like this

Buying similar feature board with much lower price is possible through eVGA and ASUS

Not recommend to buy this product. I own a UD7 motherboard, which is easy overclock and the price is about right compare to ASUS rampage II

Fits in Lian Li

Pros: This motherboard fits in the Lian Li- PC-80 Armorsuit.I have the case and motherboard.There is plenty of room left over for even a larger motherboard.

Cons: I have not found any since June.

Other Thoughts: It seems like either people hate this motherboard or love it. I have not had one issue with it so far.My previous motherboard (Asus P6T6 workstation Revolution)was not as good as this is.From the time I saw it available for purchase I knew this was the Motherboard for me.Has all the right features.I paid $699. for mine.Now it is $100 cheaper.Alot of people criticize this board and say it is overpriced and not enough features.I strongly dis agree.Everything has worked for me,posted first try.BIOS was not an adventure.

overpriced

Pros: features for this motherboard rule. 4 way sli, usb 3.0 and sata 3 on a single cpu board. The only other way to get this is buying the dual cpu evga sr-2 board.

Cons: 1. Ram- I am using a Corsair set of ddr-3 1600 24gb ram set that I have to use at 1333 to allow the mb to see the full 24gb. I have tried manual settings and XMP settings, the mb sees less than the 24gb.

2. Price- I didn't buy my mb here, I bought it elsewhere at approx. $175 cheaper. Newegg at this time is the only north american seller of this board afaik as the seller I bought from (canadian online retailer) doesn't sell it anymore. Gigabyte, don't be exclusive just for massive profit please.

3. Sound- the onboard sound is supposed to have dolby home theatre features on it (on other retail brand name desktop pc's, this is actually a software feature where you can do creative like cmss-3d effects to it) but I have tried multiple releases of the whql realtek hd audio software and there is no feature shown upon install.

4. pci slot chipset heatsink vs. molex power connector- I asked gigabyte about this and you don't have to be using both molex board connectors for extra power.
