Features    [ Edit | History ]

Ultra Durable 3 GA-X58A-UD3R Desktop Board, featuring 2 ounces of copper for both the Power and Ground layers which dramatically lowers system temperature by delivering a more efficient spreading of heat from critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU power zone throughout the entire PCB. GIGABYTE's Ultra Durable 3 also lowers the PCB impedance by 50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures.

Experience: 14 Months
- Solid
- Great features
This is my first Gigabyte motherboard and I have been really happy with it. I haven't had any crashes or any compatibility issues.

Experience: 5 Months
lots of cables.
ide plug
probably one of the best value mobo's on the market.

I would definitely buy it again.

Experience: 6 Months
great board lots of features, backed by gigabyte quality
not many really, its a great board. missing dual gig lan.
A great board at a great price. I have one and couldnt be happier. Dualbios rocks, eat your heart out Asus! :D

Experience: 60 Days

One of the cheapest X58 boards on the market
Can be fussy
Overall I like the board, but it has some quirks.
Have ran into weird cold boot issues where the board will try 2-3 POST starts before it actually goes. ONLY happens when overclocked, did not have this happen at stock. Overall I am happy with it but it can be a little strange. You get what you pay for!

6 slots of ram D:
Very Hackintosh Friendly
BOught this for a customer, it worked great and overclocks very well. It is one of the cheapest and well priced X58 motherboards out there, so if you are going to get one, get this one. I wouldn't consider using a GA-X58-UD7 because that is smply just adding for overclocking. this works fine for anyone who wants an i7, but wants to keep it simple.

Full-featured x58 board for a very low price.
No more random colors...
Great board for an i7 build; top notch quality and nice layout, possible to go for 3 video cards while adding a PCI-e 1x card at the same time.
All the connectors are easily accessible even with long video cards and it all simply fits in nicely.
Lastly, you can't really beat the amount of features you get for that price; it's simply amazing.

Experience: 14 Days
 Verified Owner
Looks good, usb 3, always on usb charger ports
got a DOA (but good service from gigabyte)
I usually don't have problems from gigabyte parts, but I did with this one. It does happen, no company is perfect, but at least, they offered me a great service and offered and RMA without too much efforts on my part.

Experience: 2 Weeks
- Lots of features and ports
- BIOS can be intimidating
All around excellent motherboard for the price and best matched with a core i7. For people having trouble installing an operating system make sure to disable "CPU Enhanced Halt" and "C3/C6/C7 State Support" on the BIOS. Additionally install the OS from a SATA drive and not an IDE.

Experience: 3 Weeks
 Verified Owner
lots of SATA and USB ports
for a $200 board none
bought this for an I7 950 build. came with bundled 12 GB OCZ ram. have a MSI 460 hawk talon card and 60 GB SSD. so far everything is good. board seems like a good deal for 200. i wanted the ausus board p6x58d :)

Experience: 5 Days
 Verified Owner
10 SATA Ports, USB3, SATA3
One PCI x1 Slot is useless with larger cards
Purchased this board and a i7 950 to go into a storage server. Overall, it's a good quality board. Gigabyte has traditionally given more stuff for the price, such as SATA ports, USB ports and eSATA ports. This board is no different. It comes with a total of 10 SATA ports, a whole pile of USB3 ports, as well as SATA3. While building the server though, I found that the heatsink next to the first PCI x1 slot is too high, meaning a long card won't fit, rendering the slot nearly useless. In my particular case, that meant installing a dual-port NIC as opposed to two individual PCI x1 NICs. Probably not a big issue for the majority of users.

Reviews from the Web

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: Sadly the original UD3 was quickly found wanting in this department and so the budget overclockers moved on to other boards with more potential. Having honed their skills on the UD9 and various P55 platforms Gigabyte are back to bring the UD3 up to the standards it should have been from the start, b

Comment: XBit Labs is the golden standard of reviews and their verdict is very positive.

Comment: Legit Bottom Line: The GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R offers good performance and nice features for the price. It may be a tad fussy, but once it works it works well. Definitely worth considering in your rig.
Posted by: IC9 @11/28/10
Comment: Overall, the X58A-UD3R is modest overclocker with high-end features for a low-end cost.
Posted by: BernardP @10/14/10
Comment: - "... the UD3R (rev 2) lived up to our expectations after we'd applied the latest BIOS. The board proved to be quick at stock speeds and eminently overclockable; when combined with its keen price these factors make the board extremely attractive." - "Excellence" rating from Bit Tech Net
