FINAL FANTASY XIV
1920 X 1080 => 4701


StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1920 X 1080 => 305.01 FPS


Sandy Bridge-E 3D performance is almost the best in current Desktop system.
Three 3D software above, it all gets almost highest scores with same VGA card.
I used to mention CPU execute thread performance will impact 3D performance. Cores donít impact much.
Thatís why you can see i7-3820 in 3D performance is almost same level as 3930K or 3960X.
If you more focus on 3D performance, 2~4Cores are enough for you. The key factor is CPU single core execute thread.

Same as room temperature, 21, i7-3820 OC 4.75GHz OC setup and use meter to test MOSFET temperature.
Enter to OS desktop and enable C1E is 44.1. Disable C1E is 44.2. CPU burning test is 70.0.
As my personal experience with X79 boards, X79-UD5 temperature is lower with 3 times repeat test.
Windwithme every X79 board reviews all have temperature numbers.

GIGABYTE X79-UD5
Pros
1. X79-UD5 packing is all white design makes look elegant.
2. UEFI BIOS technology with two BIOS interfaces.
3. Special BT4.0/Wi Ė Fi card. In the mobilization century, itís very convenient.
4. DDR3 is 8 DIMM and 10 SATA to make high expandability.
6. Exclusive front panel with USB 3.0 and quick OC features.

Cons
1. CPU voltage vibrates big between standby and full speed.
2. DDR3 2400 compatibility need to improve.



Performance ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 82/100
Components ★★★★★★★★★☆ 86/100
Specification ★★★★★★★★★☆ 92/100
Appearance ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 83/100
C/P Value ★★★★★★★★★☆ 88/100

GIGABYTE X79-UD5 is middle end in X79 market, but the spec is higher.
BT 4.0/ WiĖFi card, 8 DIMM DDR3 and 10 SATA ports are very useful for user applications.
However, the OC tuning needs to improve.
This is my 6th X79 OC review. From entry to high end X79 all take me long time to fine tune and share.
I hope itís useful for users to choose right LGA 2011 platform.

As i7-3820 launched, besides 2600K or 2700K high end LGA 1155 platform, users have one more choice.
Because entry X79 with i7-3820 price is overlapping some high end LGA 1155.
If you would like to have more upgradability and higher hardware specs, LGA2011 seems the better choice.
However, it seems too early to make the conclusion. Intel Ivy Bridge is on the way now. It may pull one back.
In the future, Intel Core i7 4C8T platform will have X79 with i7-3820 and Z77 with i7-3770K.
How to choose will be all decided by your budget and demands.
Windwithme will share more i7-3770K performance for your reference. :)
