GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs was a bit nervous, but... 10/11/2010

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: what a nice board! With all the DoA report here I was a bit nervous when ordering, but much to my relief it arrived without any apparent mishap.

Lots of connectivity, 2 PCIE x2 slots @ x16
USB 3.0 and SATA III
The board looks very nice with either red or blue LED illumination.

Cons: Price may be a bit high?
Grasping for a wish list here, but I'd love it if the USB headers were actually on the front of the board instead of the bottom ... front audio header is way in back too.
Honestly, does anyone need the floppy connectivity anymore?

Other Thoughts: So far so good with this board.
Haven't had a lot of time to play with overclocking, but all my stuff runs so much faster now, I hadn't really needed too.

current rig's hardware:

Intel i7:930
GA-x58A-UD3R LGA 1366
Crucial Ballistix Tracer (2GB x 3) DDR3 1600
MSI N460 GTX Cyclone 1GB
Samsung Spinpoint F4 2 TB HD (need some money back from uncle sam for my SSD)
