Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH Review

BIOS

The UP4 comes with the Gigabyte 3D BIOS, which looks great in pictures and is useful for allowing people who are unfamiliar with BIOS adjustments to understand what is affected by each tweak, or to adjust small things such as boot orders without being fearful they will put 2v through their CPU. Although it's obvious to us what does what, you can never underestimate the importance of teaching the next generation.

The initial options are all fairly standard things we've seen a thousand times before.

The M.I.T provides the main place we're interested in. Every item is clearly labelled and you can make as many or as few adjustments as you feel necessary.

Thunderbolt options are few, but we're sure as the technology matures this will become as fully populated as the USB options are now.

I'm curious are the heatsinks one solid piece or can you remove the grey and blue strips a separate part of metal and if so how are they connected. It would be awesome if you could take them off and paint the grey strips yourself yourself.

Are there any plans to review the UP5 TH?

Thanks for the review Bryan!

I am seriously considering buying this board; however, I am little concerned about the height of the heat sinks that surround the CPU socket.

I have bought a Thermalright Archon SB-E and due itsí 155mm length, it will overhang / foul the very top heat sink.

The clearance from between the base of the cooler to the first fin is 42.55mm. Does anyone know the height of the top two heat sinks on the board?

Does the Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E used in the review overhang the heat sinks (length 147mm)? If so, I might be in the clear because the Silver Arrow SB-E has a height of 40.87mm.

Any reply would be very much appreciated!
