Anyone had any experiences with the GA-Z77X-UP7?

I am thinking of building my new system off this board, but haven't seen very many reviews on it, anywhere. I hear it is a kicka** board, but still haven't seen much about user experience with it.

My plan is as follows:

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 Motherboard;
Intel i7-3770K CPU;
COOLER MASTER V10 Hybrid CPU Cooler - only until I get my Liquid System set-up;
G.SKILL Trident X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200);
GIGABYTE GV-N680OC-4GD GeForce GTX 680 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI either 2 or 3 of these cards;
OCZ Vector Series 256GB SATA III MLC X2;
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" HDD X4;
CM Silent Pro Gold Series 1200W ATX / EPS SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD PSU;
CM HAF X Blue Edition RC-942-KKN3 Case (adding additional top 200mm Fan, and 120mm fan to cool GPU's) Case has 230mm Front Fan (intake), 200mm Side fan (intake), Rear 140mm (exhaust) and Top 200mm(exhaust);
Viewsonic 23" LED Monitors - (1 is touchscreen) (2 are 3D Capable) X3;
ASUS Black SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST;
RAZER Naga Hex Wraith Red Edition 11 Buttons USB Wired Laser 5600 dpi Gaming Mouse;
RAZER Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 Black USB Wired Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard;
RAZER Vespula Dual Sided Gaming Mouse Mat;
Windows 8 64bit Pro

This will be a dual use system for gaming and Photo enhancement/Website building.

I have plans for additional gaming hardware, but so far costs including my basic software is pushing $8300. So I have to wait for a while to add the liquid cooling and gaming hardware.
Still need to get printers (laser and inkjets - including large format). Also have to buy a new camera body ($1500). So yes, my plans are big, I think will be well worth it.

Liquid cooling - did a little pricing last night and just running a 420 top mount radiator, 3 x 140mm fans, GPU blocks, ram cooling blocks, CPU block and pump reservoir - it was right at $1400.

So tell me guys, is this overkill or am I on the right track?
post #5193 of 6656
It's overkill on so many levels IMHO, and I'm not even sure you want to spend that much for LGA1155 system which will be absolute in a few mounts with LGA1150 release. You can recalculate your budget in a way to get 3930K + Asus RIVE build for pretty much the same money. You also mention you won't have enough for "gaming hardware", but you've mentioned GTX680s and lots of Razer peripherals, so I am not sure what else you actually need to run games... So it's really up to you.

Anyway here is UP7 club.

A detailed review, and a guide.

What would I personally do if I had the budget like yours is 3630K+RIVE, GTX670/680 SLI. NZXT Switch 810 is a much better choice for water cooling over HAF X. Corsair 900D is coming soon, but it's a much pricier case. Cooler Master's Silent Pro series are good, but there are definitely better PSUs which might cost the same. Also you won't need 1200W unless you go all the way to 4-way SLI either.

Other stuff is entirely personal preference. Open a new thread in Intel general for help with an entire build, or a component specific with help with specific components.

hi guys, i need help with my new rig.
i have a gigabyte ga z77x ud3h motherboard, my problem is my motherboard does not detect my hard disc drive and my dvd drive. motherboard codes shows A6, if i try to format my drive using usb flash drive the bios will detect the usb drive but when i got to the drive selection in which to format i does not show any drive.
i have tried changing sata cables, power supply, changing hard disc still no luck, my motherboard would not detect my hard disk.
i have tried updating the bios to f18 still no luck again.

can anyone help me please.....
i have contacted gigabyte support but they tell me to just change sata cables, psu. etc......
i have tried changing bios settings, resetting bios, loading optimized defaults nothing happened.

please help me guys.
thanks a lot

yea i know what you mean, i think it might be a BIOS thing, can you flash back to another BIOS? They would have a firmware update, it would be in a BIOS./

Just because a BETA comes out, doesn't mean you have to update to it.

Thanks for the recommendations DeXeL, but I see no reason to go with all the new bells and whistles with the 1150 format. The shear costs of waiting and then paying top-dollar for everything is out of the question. I mean, I'm already looking at a ton of greenbacks to do this build and with the way Intel and the hardware manufacturers are in their pricing structure, it will be almost 2 years before I could afford to get into the LGA 1150 format CPU and hardware.

Now, for the other recommendations on the case and other items, I'll look into those things. The gaming hardware I'm talking about, are the flight controls and other items required to do Flight Simulations. No, I'm not a multilevel gamer. I prefer the things that take skills. Multilevel gaming is not a challenge for me. I like things that will utilizes the nugget instead of how fast I can hit a button to kill some object. I prefer having to make calculated maneuvers and knowing that if I mess up, I can start over and know that it won't take forever to get back to that level. But who's counting, right?

And like I said, this will be a dual purpose unit.
1) Gaming for pleasure, and
2) for Photo Editing and Website building.

So, yes I plan on using a 4-way SLI eventually, I just have to wait every couple of months to buy the pieces. The Hard Drives and SSD's are there for both storage and speed. So the higher rated PSU and other items are required.

I'm still undecided on the actual Video cards I'll use. Whatever I can find that can be watercooled will be what I actually buy. SO many cooler manufacturers don't offer that many blocks for full coverage usage. I may end up with EVGA's or Zotac, who knows for sure.

Again, thanks for the recommendations.

Unless you live somewhere other than the USA, LGA1150 CPUs and boards will replace LGA1155 price segments. You'll be able to build for the same money a better system. It's just the waiting.

UP7 is an enthusiast grade board. You can save a quite a bit with G1 Sniper 3, and get more gamer related features. It has worse VRM, but it's a very capable board.

I just wouldn't pay more than $300 for a Z77 board.

I finally got my motherboard back from rma and it turns out when that when my motherboard went it took out my boot drive and my video card. Does anyone know if gigabyte replaces components that one of their products broke. I really do not want to spend $400 I do not have to get it back to where it was a month ago
post #5200 of 6656

Can my mobo overclock a 3350P to 3.7Ghz on all cores?

 

Does Windows 8 cover ALL USB 3.0 drivers or just the Intel ports? I have an Intel and a Etron controller.
