Pricing, Availability and Final Thoughts
Sitting below $200, we find ourselves instantly becoming a little more excited about the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H. Coming in under the $200 mark is always appealing to people as they find themselves budgeting for a motherboard around this price point. At around $200, you tend to get most of the features you need that are going to keep you going for a while.
Looking today, you can see the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H manages to really offer us a nice amount of features for this price point. While the package is a little on the light side, you can see that the design of the board is strong, and overall features are strong thanks to that Ultra Durable labeling that brings with it some great quality components.
Performance overall is really strong. The PCMark 8 Home score was slightly down, and we saw that HD Tune Pro numbers sat a bit behind the pack. Memory performance was strong, though, alongside the overclock. Something else that really stood out was both the power and temperature numbers we saw on the setup. At 4.95GHz, the fact that we remain under 90C is always impressive, especially considering the extra voltage going through our CPU.
The GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H really does a great job of ticking most of the boxes when it comes to going over everything. Sitting at under $200, the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H manages to still see an excellent line up of features, including Bigfoot Killer Gigabit networking and all of the extras that Ultra Durable brings to the table.
Overclocking performance is strong, and not only does the heat sink in gold look great, but it clearly seems to work as we see some great numbers when it comes to heat. For the price point, it really feels like you can't go too wrong with this board. The UD5H series again brings with it both features and performance at a great price point.
