Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Review


At the risk of repeating ourselves we see the same disparity between the stock and overclocked results as we saw in CineBench. At stock the UD4H is the slowest system we've tested, even beaten out by the reference Intel motherboard. Yet with the overclock in place it's knocking on the door of the very fastest times. This certainly is one for the overclockers.

Another calculation-heavy test and another fastest and slowest result for the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H. It's quite surprising to see such a mid-range motherboard perform so poorly at stock yet be so blistering once you've overclocked it.

The moment, when after being so itchy that you go out and buy stuff without waiting much for reviews, the one by your favorite reviewer(s) gets out and confirms you haven't totally f'ed up. Priceless! Of course from using it I had a pretty good idea about that.
TBH I had to get used to the red a bit. But the features just did fit my needs.

Leaves me to say (again) thanks for the review!Quote

Thanks for a very nice comprehesive review Tom.
I agree, the board looks very nice with the silver and candy apple red details.
If i were to build a Haswell platform right now this would certainly be one of the contenders. I also love that you point out that the board might not be the best choice for the peeps that are not overclocking. Good to get all the pros AND the cons.

On another note. Bloody in ...whats up with your language these days? I for one find it....a bit brute - Possibly even offending to some? No need for profanities imo.
