Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Review

PC Mark

We're beginning to run out of new ways to express the same sentiment, namely that the UD4H is very average out of the box but comes alive when you overclock it. Looking purely at the final PC Mark score for a moment, the stock test is the worst in Vantage and only the Maximus VI Extreme saves it from the bottom of the pile in PC Mark 7. Yet once we overclock the UD4H it is only the Gigabyte Z87X-OC that betters it in either Vantage or 7.

The moment, when after being so itchy that you go out and buy stuff without waiting much for reviews, the one by your favorite reviewer(s) gets out and confirms you haven't totally f'ed up. Priceless! Of course from using it I had a pretty good idea about that.
TBH I had to get used to the red a bit. But the features just did fit my needs.

Leaves me to say (again) thanks for the review!Quote

Thanks for a very nice comprehesive review Tom.
I agree, the board looks very nice with the silver and candy apple red details.
If i were to build a Haswell platform right now this would certainly be one of the contenders. I also love that you point out that the board might not be the best choice for the peeps that are not overclocking. Good to get all the pros AND the cons.

On another note. Bloody in ...whats up with your language these days? I for one find it....a bit brute - Possibly even offending to some? No need for profanities imo.

Wow, this is quite a nice board when OC'd. Doesn't hurt that it looks the part too. I'm glad the matte black PCB is really catching on, it really does make a difference in the looks departmentQuote

Now see THIS is a red/black board I can really sink my teeth into. I liked it when I first saw it, I like it even more now knowing that it's performance is just as good as it's looks. *adds to short list of recommended parts*Quote

You keep on in expressing yourself Tom - Down to earth reviewers, breath of fresh air and not candy arsed -togglers that think everything is awesome and full of the good stuff, etc..... Like this board a lot and your impressions of this being a spanker are certainly brought to life in your extensive review. Am amazed that amazon are now boshing these out at £145. Was going to get a sabertooth, still might - but this is certainly worth thinking about.. cheers TTQuote
