Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard Review

Dam Good by MAC eh..

Nice written review, pretty impressive board really, apart from the power connection clearance on the board, it is nice to see all connectors are free from any obstruction. Actually MAC it was nice of you to go a level higher and test the SATA port connectors, really that's the first thing that came into mind when I saw that board, *pulls hair, what the hek is wrong Gigabyte*. Also the ULTRA 120 fits with no worries, enough clearance to memory and memory having distance to the video card.

And overclocking the memory was nice, I do myself have those Crucial Ballistix's, they have been pretty solid so far, I've pushed them way too far and increased voltage on them when I was learning Overclocking in the past, and they thankfully they are still alive, I'm trying to kill them so I can get Mushkin Ascents lol :P

Great review MAC.. :thumb:

Yep, great review!

Having just purchased a P5Q pro, I was a bit concerned that I should have picked this one up, but as you mentioned in the conclusion the listed price on these is quite a bit more than the current ASUS darling.

I'm still liking their on-the-fly voltage adjustments though and may have to pick one of these up when (and if) I decide to replace the DQ6.

Small question though: no more CTRL+F1 to access the hidden BIOS settings?

I'm not sure if it a question that can be asked but...

Is that mobo going to end up for sale or it went back to mfg or the reviewer is keeping it :ph34r:

My P5K is starting to give me issue and i'm about to pull the trigger on a new mobo :haha: Might as well check beforehand.

Great review MAC! I always end up wanting to buy after reading a good review of a product here at HWC. It's definitely my number one source for impartial data on hardware. Thanks a lot!

You can ask the question, but it might not get answered... :)

I hate that, pointless IMO.
