HASH(0x9deee498) out of 5 stars Excellent Motherboard Designed for Computer Ninjas, and also humans... July 19 2014
By Adam Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the second Gigabyte motherboard I have bought, the first one being for my first computer build on an AMD platform. From my experience, a Gigabyte motherboard is inexpensive, high quality, and feature rich.

I bought the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H motherboard to pair up with an Intel i7-4790K CPU. I read an earlier review claiming the i7-4790K did not work on this motherboard. The reviewer's shipped BIOS version was F5, while mine was F6. I used a cheap Celeron CPU to flash the board to the recommended F7 BIOS update. My i7-4790K is working fine on the F7 BIOS.

Why this board is nice:

- LGA 1150 socket (supports latest Intel CPUs)
- Intel Z97 Express Chipset (latest chipset as of this writing)
- SATA Express port
- M.2 connector (great for an Operating System SSD!)
- Choice between Killer(tm) E2200 and Intel gigabit network chips
- Dual RJ-45 Ethernet ports
- Sound card offering 115dB SNR with a built in headphone amp
- Dual BIOS for safer flashing/ reliability

Stuff it has that should be standard:

- Lots of USB 3.0 ports on the back w/ some USB 2.0 (no one cares about PS/2 ports)
- Electrically isolated audio components
- 2-Way SLI or 3-Way Crossfire support
- A CPU_OPT plug (use dual fans on your CPU cooler or a water cooler!)
- Onboard ICs and ESD filters for USB and LAN ports (help prevent electric board failure)

Note: You can only use one of the M.2, SATA Express, or SATA3 ports 4/5 at a time. If you need to check CPU compatibility, download the latest drivers, or utilities for this motherboard you can run a search on "Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H" and consult the manufacturer's support page.

The only thing which irked me with this motherboard was the point-and-click BIOS which can be switched to a more familiar classic mode. That said, the temperature and fan rpm readouts are a welcome touch. The board immediately recognized the XMP profile on my set of 2 X 8GB 2400MHz RAM (16GB total). I also plugged in my two SSDs, HDD, optical drive, audio card, GTX 670, etc., without a hitch. I have a feeling we are going to be friends. :)

HASH(0x9de4ab7c) out of 5 stars I'm happy with this board - works great May 27 2014
By David Bakin - Published on Amazon.com

I've never done a motherboard review on Amazon.com before - and I'm not Anand or Tom or any of those guys who do the 12-page-with-graphs-and-photos reviews at the great component review sites. So I'll just say:

Board works great and installs easy.

Things I particularly like:

a) Good selection of add-in card slots, 8 total SATA III ports (6 Intel, 2 Marvell), 2x Gb Ethernet, lots of USB 3.0. Handles either USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 front panels, so it'll work no matter how new/old your case.

b) The smaller cable from the power supply is positioned very nicely - not too close to the CPU or to the edge of the board. My last Gigabyte motherboard (7 years ago - still works great) had that smaller cable extremely close to the edge of the board and practically under the CPU fan which made it impossible to unplug. In fact, there's sufficient room around the CPU so the cooler also avoids your memory (or at least, it did for me).

c) All the motherboard drivers (newly downloaded from Gigabyte's site) installed easily on Windows Server 2012 R2, which isn't always the case. Except for the Intel LAN driver - which in a masterful piece of Intel obnoxiousness does not install on Windows Server operating systems by design. Idiots. Fortunately, you can Google for a workaround, so my Intel GbE port is working.

d) The M.2 slot will be peachy keen if M.2 PCIe (not SATA) SSDs ever exist at a reasonable price. Or even a not so reasonable price. Right now: there's only one brand available and although I'm sure it is very nice it costs $$$$$.

UPDATE: Gigabyte has released the M.2 compatibility list and there are two M.2 PCIe components on it, not just one, and one comes in multiple capacities. So the situation is improving already.

Things I'm not so keen on:

a) Marvell SATA controller chip - the drivers for this (Windows Server 2012 R2/Windows 8.1) don't seem very good - in particular even though these are internal SATA connectors the drives show up as removable and there's no way to properly configure that and also the Marvell controller doesn't work with another Marvell add-in controller if you're using Windows Storage Spaces..

b) All 8 SATA connectors are at the very edge of the motherboard, and are closely stacked. The fact that they're closely stacked (I think in the standard way, I mean, the dual socket is probably a standard part) means that I can't use a latching cable for the 3 bottom SATA cables. And, unfortunately, the fact that they're at the edge of the motherboard means that in the otherwise spacious tower case I'm using they're very close to one of the drive cages, and that means it is very hard to get everything in place while keeping the SATA cables properly plugged in, and I'm worried that vibration will eventually disconnect the cables.

c) Fancy graphical BIOS seems rather pointless. As do useless Gigabyte "utilities" comprising their "Add In Center". But who cares? You can use the classic BIOS and never bother to install the utilities.

d) Speaking of the BIOS, the new "Windows 8.1 options" in the BIOS are not explained in the manual or anywhere else. Since I have no idea what these settings do I guess that means I'm too stupid to change the default settings. Except, I'm not. So that's irksome.

Things I'm not happy about at all:

a) Doesn't remember that you want to boot from a USB stick first. So each time you want to boot from USB (OS upgrade, running Clonezilla, whatever you have in mind) you've got to put the USB stick in and then go into the BIOS and set it to be the highest priority drive. Which is remarkably stupid. (This is with the F6 BIOS, latest as of the writing of this review.)

HASH(0x9dcefb64) out of 5 stars Solid board June 1 2014
By Josh Olson - Published on Amazon.com

PROS:

Sound quality on the board is very solid and can save you from feeling the need to buy additional card.

The video quality of this board is also more than sufficient for non-gaming purposes.

The motherboard is well labeled and the user manual is well written and complete.

Has a more old school looking BIOS to go along with the more graphical one brought on by EUFI. There is a ton of tweaking one can do if they are inclined to do so.

Lots of SATA connectors (6 Intel, 2 Marvell) and 2 chipsets for RAID (Intel & Marvell). Also has a SATA Express and the very new M.2. One caveat to note is SATA connectors 4 & 5, SATA Express and M2 can only be used one at a time.

Plenty of support for USB 3.0 and 2.0.

CONS:

If you use this board in conjunction with a PCI Express 16x graphics card, like I am doing, you will find many of the SATA and related connectors are location directly under the graphics card. It is not a huge deal if you do not plan on plugging and unplugging the connectors much after your initial build but it will definitely not be convenient if you do.

I have read the Killer E2201 software for Windows 8 has a memory leak issue so you may want to look into it before buying. This board has an alternate Ethernet port though.

CONCLUSION:
Overall I have found this to be a very solid board for my build. It worked upon initial boot and I have had no issues with it. Gigabyte continues to earn my business.

HASH(0x9dd65840) out of 5 stars i7-4790k (rocky start, but kinks worked out) July 24 2014
By Josh H - Published on Amazon.com

My board arrived with F6 bios flashed. I was concerned with getting the new i7-4790k processor working with this, but everything went fine. I put the processor in and it booted to bios and asked me about using a different version of bios. F6 doesn't recognize this processor. I went to gigabyte's website, download the new F8 bios, formatted a flash drive to FAT, extracted the bios zip, copied the contents of the zip onto the drive, and put it in the USB on the board. I hit enter new bios, and it found the flash drive and the F8 bios. After a 5-minute flash, we're good to go!

If your board turns on and off repeatedly, once every 5 seconds, don't worry! It's been years since my last build and newer boards require two hookups to your PSU. One is the big obvious one on the right, the other is a power socket near the top left of the board. You must have both hooked up for the board to work.

Another note: my zalman fan sitting on top of the i7 was always running at full speed when connected to CPU_FAN. I changed settings in the bios and none seemed to affect it running at 100%. I found that connecting it to OPT_FAN (right under CPU_FAN) allowed it to run at a variable, lower rate. I have all my fans running on 'silent' mode.

With the i7-4790k, PC3 12800 RAM, and stock settings, it runs quiet, cool, and has a 64-bit windows geekbench score over 16,000 (http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/674800).
