While it's interesting to see a black-and-red Gigabyte board (Z87X-UD4H), I'm rather surprised that Gigabyte's ditching the blue PCBs for their budget models (Z87-D3HP).

Honestly, that color was one of my pet peeves with their budget boards. Sadly they're still using poorly-oriented vertical SATA connectors on that board, which is a big turnoff.

Still, at least you can put that board in a windowed case without it looking ridiculous...

I hope with all those buttons on the mobo theres the ability to set an OC, and then in windows when I'd need an OC for a certain few games, be able to flick a switch/button and turn on/off the OC. He did say the voltages could be adjusted while in windows.
