Gigabyte X58A-UD9 Review.

With LN2 Overclocking Results


Gigabyte is quite renowned as a motherboard and GPU manufacturer, well known for both its stable, low cost platforms and on the other spectrum enthusiast level performance driven products. We have known GIGABYTE to strive and meet the enthusiast segments demands with pretty high quality products and designs. The newest member of the GIGABYTE motherboard family seems not only to continue the trend but take it much higher with the board conceptualizing a slew of cutting edge technology which haven't been seen ever before in our opinion.

Today's review subject, the Gigabyte X58A-UD9 is truly part of the 'cream of the crop' - the best and most expensive motherboard in Gigabyte's entire lineup. In fact, it is the most expensive enthusiast segment motherboard in the world as of now. With its long list of features we don't know where to start. First off, this motherboard utilizes Gigabyte's brand new 24-phase power design, called 'Gigabyte Unlocked Power' in marketing terms, which should be able to deliver the maximum CPU power for not only superior extreme overclocking, but much higher reliability, lower temperatures, and probably better energy efficiency as well. Secondly, thanks to the addition of a Marvell controller, this motherboard supports the new SATA 6Gb/s interface and like all Gigabyte motherboards with the X58A moniker, the X58A-UD7 supports USB 3.0, which is a standard that is only set to gain steam among enthusiasts as we go further into 2010. Also, it is only the second motherboard in the world to support both 4-way ATI CrossfireX™ and Nvidia SLI™, providing 4 PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots.

In this review the board will not be running our regular suite of benchmarks but instead we will be testing the living hell out of the motherboard under extreme cooling conditions with liquid nitrogen.

So let's move on to look at the features and some frosty pics ahead.

There ain't no kill like overkill

Got to hand it to Gigabyte for making a board that makes practically every single competitor look quite silly.

The mobo is definitely expensive, but like Stoney said, there ain't no kill like overkill.

Insane features, and the most important part is that in India the price is brilliant compared to its competitors. Great stuff.

Top review and tests by the top OCer for the current top board in the ring. Gigabyte has shown the world that it is the most serious contender to take the performance crown in the mobo wars.
