GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7 - The Board Continued

 

Continuing to move around the board, we get up to the top right corner. Here we've got our four DIMM slots that support dual channel DDR3. While we don't have actual documentation from GIGABYTE on what exactly is supported here, it's extremely safe to assume we've got the standard setup.

The standard setup means we've got support for up to 32GB of DDR3 at 1066 / 1333 / 1600 / 1866 / 2133 MHz DDR. Also around this area we can see our main ATX power connector and next to that a fan header.

Just around this area, we can also see a couple of extra buttons; the big one is of course a power switch, the smaller blue one is a reset button and the black one that sits next to the power connector is a reset CMOS. These are extremely handy buttons to have if you're testing or just want to make sure everything is working without having to hook up the front panel buttons.

Looking around the CPU area, we've got a very nice clean setup and you can have a closer look at the heatpipe / heatsink design GIGABYTE have opted for. It's very clean and typical GIGABYTE. Behind it you can also just see a picture of the 8-Pin CPU power connector.

Finally, we have the I/O side of things and the first thing we see is our PS/2 combo port. Also here we've got a total of eight USB ports, two 1394 FireWire ports and two Gigabit network ports. We also have an array of audio jacks for digital and analogue sound.
