Gigabyte has some of the most popular mainboards around for enthusiasts and gamers that like to roll their own computers. The company has been around for a long time and offers a lot more than mainboards. For many enthusiasts what hardware looks like is almost as important as how well that hardware performance.

Gigabyte has unveiled its first mainboards that use black PCBs. The black PCB looks a lot better than the old and boring green I typically see on a mainboard today or the blue Gigabyte usually offers. The new boards are the P67A-UD5 and the P67A-UD7. The boards are the new high-end LGA1155 parts from Gigabyte. To keep with the dark stealth look of the mainboard Gigabyte also uses dark graphite color heat sinks.

 

Those heat sinks have a bit of blue trim on the UD5 and some gold trim on the UD7. Features for the UD7 include a 24-phase VRM for the processor, four PCIe 2.0 x16 slots, PCI-E bridge chip, and six SATA 3GB/s and a pair of SATA 6GB/s ports. The board also has four USB 3.0 ports, eSATA, and FireWire. The UD5 has a 20-phase VRM, three x16 PCIe slots, two SATA 6GB/s ports, four SATA 3GB/s ports, and a pair of eSATA ports and two USB 3.0 ports.
