GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sending in an MSI SLI Plus for return and bought this to replace it.

Got this board at another merchant before sending the MSI for return, had no problems with startup and was plug and play for the most part.

Cons: Has a lot of lights that are bright on the board itself... hopefully they can be shutoff in the bios ...

CPU fan locations are directly in the middle of the board being OCD and not wanting any wires floating around the board makes it challenging ...

Other Thoughts: Seems to be a great board as all the other gigabyte boards I've bought have been ...

Replaced a MSI X99 SLI Plus with this and not disappointment.

Gonna install 10.10 next ...

MSI X99S SLI Plus LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Color is nice and board layout works for what I needed.

Basic X99 board that gets the job done and has overclocking features.

Cons: Only has 2 onboard USB 2.0 slots.

Ram Slot 3 is bad and wont boot when a ram stick is inserted so running quad-channel is not possible. Have 8 sticks of memory and NONE of them worked when in slot 3.

Ram is also hard to put in place and doesn't snap in very easily.

Other Thoughts: Having spent almost 2k on a computer build you would expect things to simply just work without problems ... but it seems that quite a few motherboards are having problems with this chipset regardless of the manufacturer.

Most likely returning this and getting a Gigabyte board if I can't get the RAM slot working since they are reportedly easier to setup with a hackintosh anyway.
