Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Review @ [H]ard|OCP

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
[H]ard gave us a sneak peak at one of Gigabytes new, high-end, X58 motherboards a few weeks ago and they have now finally released a full review. Find it here.

As a long time Gigabyte user and one who is buying a Core i7 combo next weekend, I've been looking forward to this review.

Yeah, it's a great board I had it for a couple weeks now I am glad I made the right choice and I been a long time user of Asus boards.. I thought this one just beat the current x58 chip boards from Asus in my opinion.
