Twitter Global Weekly Giveaway - GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-WIFI (Intel C606) Motherboard

Time for a motherboard upgrade? GIGABYTE's X79S-UP5-WIFI is just what the doctor order

In this Twitter weekly giveaway we have teamed up with GIGABYTE to giveaway a hot new motherboard. We're talking about just any motherboard; we're talking about the new and impressive X79S-UP5-WIFI. It's an enthusiast-class board with server like features since it uses the impressive high-end Intel C606 Express chipset.


In our review of the X79S-UP5-WIFI, our motherboard editor Shane Baxtor had the following to say:

"When it comes to the features, we've got a strong line up thanks to the eight SAS ports that are brought to the table via the C606 chipset. Along with that we've got all the usual inclusions like USB 3.0 and dual Gigabit networking to name just a few things. The other big feature, though, comes in the bundle via the included WiFi / Bluetooth card that adds another layer of connectivity to the board.

Overall GIGABYTE has put together a really strong motherboard that's a great option for anyone who is looking at going down the path of an LGA 2011 build. The toughest decision when it comes to buying a new high-end PC at the moment is do you go down the LGA 2011 path with a X79 / C606 based chipset or follow the impressive LGA 1155 based CPU's with an Z77 chipset, which has proven itself extremely well."
