“Extremely large size of this mainboard makes it incompatible with many system cases out there. However, it doesn’t really matter, because it is not intended for everyday work, but rather for extreme overclocking experiments and setting overclocking records, and in this case standard dimensions, nominal modes and power-saving technologies aren’t necessary.”

“Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 is shipped in a thin cardboard box without any bells and whistles such as a carry-handle or flip covers. Modest design of the front side is very pleasing to the eye and only includes a few logos. The back of the box has a photo of the mainboard, a brief list of technical specifications and mentions a few specific peculiarities.”


MSI A75MA-G55 @ RBMods

“Today we take a look at a socket FM1 motherboard from MSI name A75MA-G55. This board comes with features like long lifespan components, OC Genie, onboard graphics, USB 3 and SATA 3. This looks like a good board for the FM1 socket and perhaps a HTPC setup or even better…Lets find out!”

“After all, not everyone can afford dropping a small fortune on a LGA2011 platform setup. The Z68 board from Gigabyte we’re looking at is the Z68XP-UD5. It has many of the enthusiast features Gigabyte is known for, but lacks the high price tag of its X79 counterparts. Can this board measure up? We think so.”


ASUS P9X79WS @ Bjorn3D

“Today we are looking at the P9X79 WS. The “WS” stands for Workstation, and this board exudes capability from the specs on up. On paper the board looks very capable and amazing as it offers many features that would make us think it belongs in the ROG class.”

“The B75M-D3H appeals to all of these markets, and we thought it was only right that we give you; our loyal readers, a chance to see what this board has to offer, especially considering the server based products we’ve been looking at recently, including NAS boxes and server based platforms, this should fit right in.”

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 @ PC Perspective

“The Gigabyte X79-UD5 motherboard takes full advantage of the new features available with the LGA 2011 platform and X79 Express chipset like the abiliy to use up to 64GBs of quad-channel memory via eight DIMMs and support for dual and triple AMD CrossfireX or NVIDIA SLI graphics card configurations for multi-monitor, high-definition gaming.”

ASUS Sabertooth X79

ASUS Sabertooth X79 @ PureOC

“Premium motherboards like ASUS ’ Sabertooth X79 carry a hefty price tag but their Sabertooth series has always offered robust and solid features with a bit more modest price tag. For quite some time, ASUS has branded both the Rampage and the Sabertooth series but they skipped a beat on the Z68 motherboards with the Sabertooth series.”

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 @ PCStats

“The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome ‘Sandy Bridge-E’ motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work. Gigabyte’s GA-X79-UD5 board is equipped with eight DDR3 memory slots, not the usual four.”
