The Motherboard Continued
As we move away from the bottom of the Z68X-UD3H-B3, we can see our four RAM slots which support up to 32GB of DDR3 at speeds of 2133 / 1866 / 1600 / 1333 / 1066MHz DDR.
Below our RAM slots we've got a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) header. Just under that header we've got our 24-Pin main ATX power point and just next to that we've got a single 3-Pin fan header.
Towards the other back corner of the motherboard we've got our 8-Pin CPU power connector in the normal location you'd expect to see it. Just next to that we've got another 3-Pin fan header.
Looking at the CPU area, it's of course pretty clean as you would expect. There's less to look at when compared to the UD7 because it doesn't have as large a heatsink / heatpipe setup. Like most of the other Z68 boards we've looked at, we do have a smaller heatsink setup. In typical GIGABYTE Ultra Durable fashion, though, the quality is great and just sits well on the board.
Looking at the I/O side of things, we've got from the left; a combo PS/2 port and two USB 2.0 ports. Next to that we've got our video connections in the form of DVI-D, VGA, DisplayPort and HDMI. Just above the HDMI port we've also got an Optical port.
Continuing to move across, we've got an eSATA port, 1394 FireWire and two more USB 2.0 ports. We've got another two USB ports, but these blue ones are USB 3.0 and are powered via the Etron EJ168 chip. We've also got a single Gigabit network powered by the Realtek RTL8111E chip and our audio jacks via the Realtek ALC889 codec.
