These 100% digital controllers offer incredible precision in delivering power to the motherboard's most power-hungry and energy-sensitive components, allowing enthusiasts to get the absolute maximum performance from their new Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition CPUs.

IR Digital PWM & IR PowIRstage® ICs


This new generation of IR® digital power controllers and PowIRstage® ICs feature Isense technology, which provide more precise current sensing accuracy. This helps evenly distribute the thermal loading between the PowerIRstage® ICs, preventing the overheating of each individual PowerIRstage®, resulting in longer lifespan and better reliability.


Single Package Design

IR® has leveraged it's world class packaging technology developed for the DirectFET®, improving the thermal capability and layout of the PowIRstage® significantly over that of other MCM packages.


Single Package Design* Vs. Multi-Chip Design

Other MOSFET layout implementations use a multi-chip, side-by-side arrangement of the high and low side MOSFETs and driver ICs, taking up significant board real estate and creating more electrical leakage.

Nice Motherboard

Pros: This is a really nice X99 board for first time enthusiasts to start on! I got it hooked it up with some Corsair ddr4's and my old liquid cooler and it runs all my games very nicely.

Cons: price could be cheaper to be competitive. There are a lot of RGB boards out there and the LED's on these don't really stand out to me

2 years running....

Pros: Just an update(10/22/16) at two years in, I'm still happy with this board and proudly fly the five egg flag

As others have mentioned, it will on occasion hiccup and not post, but it's never failed me. The GTX600 ftw did give it up last month, but it was a painless RMA. Something to be said about a three year warranty. I haven't updated the bios(now @ F21) to the most current as what I have now is stable enough and I always have activation issues after I update a bios.

solid board, have had perhaps one or two issues since the build was finished. I'm a bit puzzled why so many people are unhappy with this board.

There have been a couple of update to the Gigabyte apps, but most importantly no real issues with anything. I can't even nit anybody who reads my reviews know I'm pretty good at.

I have not had to open the case once since the build.

Cons: seems to be a rare but annoying USB issue that prevents a reboot. I'm still on bios f7. Out of the blue I'll see the gigabyte logo instead of the megatrends something might be glitching the bios.

I do not want/need to update the bios as that typically triggers off a rash of re-authorizations for every bit of software I have installed. Not interested in going thru that unless there is some really solid benefit a new bios will bring.

uh the 2011-v3 processors and ddr4 memory are _still_ pricey.

Other Thoughts: I would pay careful attention to every bit of your build if you are having trouble. This does not ignore the fact that there could be a dozen flaky boards out there.

it's been rock solid for me playing all my favorite games..and I mean rock solid. while this was a premium cost build, I'm more then satisfied with it. So is my wife, who is always happier when I'm not pointing my pistol at the case crying "behave or else"

Good board at this price

Pros: Well built, nice design and looks good in a system. Internal audio chip has decent sound quality, nothing to complain about.

Cons: No major issues compared to what others have been saying here.

Other Thoughts: I really liked the LED's on the board itself. It looks clean and doesn't have too many flashy LED's that make a board look to gaudy.

Do not buy

Pros: none

Cons: It stopped working out of nowhere after 5 months of use. I sent it back through RMA and after A MONTH waiting they send me this gem: "Due to physical damage, the warranty on this gigabyte product is voided and
the item is being returned as is."
It did not work properly right from day one with some usb ports not working and the computer would not turn on if 5 or more usb ports were being used at the same time.

Best Motherboard for X99 available

Pros: Got this new board as a gift and so went out and bought some new parts from newegg 6800K as well as some Kingston Memory. Could not believe the performance I got from this new system that I just built. This new PC is my daily gaming system now and it really rips the competition in half. I haven't experienced this much speed before.

Overall one of the best sell points is just the overall look as well as the included WiFi with this unit. If you are looking for a reliable PC for the enthusiast platform definitely buy this board.

Cons: None that I can see probably improve on providing a USB flash for the drivers. Also more RGB Lighting

Other Thoughts: I got a Type-C add on just to future proof and it fit perfectly into the unit.

X99-UD5 WiFi - Great Enthusiast Level Board

Pros: Wanted a board for the new X99 Platform and couldn't decide on what to get. After looking at the gigabyte site and the newegg page I finally decided on this board. After the install I knew I made the right choice. I love all the features gigabyte has included on the board and most importantly the Wifi worked right out of the box. Got this with some Corsair memory and loved the overall look of my new pc. This is great for any user wanting to get into the enthusiast platform as the pricing is reasonable and it really gives you a great bang for the buck

Cons: None that I can see, wish it had more colors and some RGB effects.

Other Thoughts: the box is not so flashy as i'd like but the quality of the board really top notch.
