[BTUK] Gigabyte-A75-UD4H Review

A familiar PCI layout from gigabyte, if it ain’t broke don't fix it.

There is a PCI x1 slot above the first PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot for your sound-card as not to block airflow to your discrete card.

2 PCIx1 slots underneath.

A second PCI-E 2.0 slot, only difference being this one will always run at x8 bandwidth. It will take a big card to saturate that and crossfire is supported ( Not sure if the SLI hack works but I presume it does.) But this board is really not aimed at those wanting to run crossfire with anything other than the APU in dual graphics mode. That being said, there is 3 slot spacing between the slots so if the urge to upgrade is tingling then the board can do it quite comfortably.

Then there are 2 legacy PCI slots at the bottom for your older expansion cards and my debug card since there isn't an on-board readout and it's quite hard to spot reboot loops through telepathy .

Can't wait till those black edition A8's come out. The full potential of this platform is just begging to be unleashed.
