Overclocking the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD9 + Core i7-980X with LN2 by Deanzo - Motherboard & Accessories

Today we look at the new flagship motherboard from GIGABYTE, the GA-X58A-UD9. We want to see what limits it will push a Gulftown CPU to when frozen at minus 150 degrees celcius.

| Socket LGA 1366 in Motherboards | Posted: Jul 10, 2010 8:02 am

The Board

There's something about this board, I find it quite striking. The gourdy colours of old are a distant memory, replaced with the pale blue and white, with a sensible layout, which is impressive with the amount of features GIGABYTE adds to their boards.

The power and reset buttons are situated to the right of the memory slots. I much prefer this position over having it situated below the bottom PCI-e slots on other boards.

Seven PCI-e slots ready and waiting to be populated by the top graphics cards of today.

Very similar to the other high end GIGABYTE boards, with the same abilities to power and/or charge certain external devices.

The board comes with the usual assortment of accessories, manuals, driver disk, I/O shield, assortment of leads, SLI and Crossfire bridges, including and most important, both a three way and four way SLI bridge.
