Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H Socket 1150 Motherboard Review
Today, we got our first look at a motherboard strictly for the Intel Haswell processors using Intel's newest socket 1150 platform. The motherboard would be the Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H. If you are familiar with Gigabyte, you would know that any UD3H model falls under their mid-range category with a pretty solid performance and a better-than-good overclocking capability. It is a decent motherboard for any entry to mid-level enthusiast build that will not break the bank.
As stated above, this motherboard is intended for the new Haswell series of processors. On launch there was several processors released but the two most popular amongst enthusiasts and overclockers are the i5-4670K and the i7-4770K processors due to their unlock multipliers. We will take our newly purchased i7-4770K and this new Gigabyte motherboard and see just how capable in overclocking this motherboard can do.
