Well I think that was a good and fair review for the most part. Where I would differ is the reviewer was optimistic that maybe they got an underperforming part whereas I would think Intel would have sent them a cherry-picked part.

Anyone got any thoughts on the Gigabyte Z97X Gaming series?  Im looking at the Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 7, comes with 8GB hyperx ram ath moment worth £60, seems like a good deal.

After a long journey developing the thread on my sig that's the card I ended up with. According to Sin's list, since we don't have other data, but he is a very reliable Gigabyte source, it's on 8 true digital phases, in effect it has a quality that is only slightly worse than the best boards in the market. The gaming 5 has identical CPU VRM, but it lacks an extra phase for the memory, the power button, voltage meter station, etc.

Brilliant, thanks! +rep.

 

I dont think I have any other obvious choice to go with then, since the extra RAM is worth like £60 if I sell it, meaning the board only costs like £80, compared to SOC Force which costs £170.

I could say in half-jest that Z97X-gaming 7 is the new UD5H. 8 true digital phases, instead of 6 doubled to 12, an extra phase for the memory, overclocking extras, etc. Sure it has killer lan and sound blaster software but I kinda like the idea exploring them.

Well ive only ever had my trusty old z77x-UD3H and that has served me well, overclocks like a beast no problems whatsoever.  How would you say it compares to that?
