GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H - The Board Continued

 

As we start to move to the top of the board we can see our RAM slots. The setup here is of course identical to the UD7. That means we've got support for up to 32GB of DDR3 at 1066 / 1333 / 1600 / 1866 / 2133 MHz DDR.

Below this we have our main ATX power connector and next to that you can see a small fan header. Not present on this board is the power, reset and clear CMOS switches that we saw on the UD7.

Looking next to the RAM area, we can see our CPU area and it's fairly plain around here. There's of course not as much going on because we don't have the big heatpipe setup that's present on the UD7.

Finally, we have the I/O side of things which offers us a combo PS/2 port, six USB ports with the two blue ones being USB 3.0, FireWire and eSATA and some analogue audio outputs. The big difference here is the DVI, VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort connector. Unlike the UD7, the UD3H has the HD Intel graphics which is the reason we have these connections.
