Used this in my first set up that I built myself, Using a i7 950, GTX 580 and 6GB Corsair Dominator RAM. Easy board to overclock and looks the part.
Also works well with my SATA3 Solid State Drive.

Purchased this to fit my i7 950 and new 6970.

Comes with some nice features with the disc and fitted it into my HAF 912 with no issues what so ever.

very good board

very good board nice layout no issues with memory or noises through speakers, good solid board all round with 6gb corsair and i7 930

Audio Static

had a problem with this board as many others, had massive latancy issues which created audio static/ lag in everything. the the beta FB11 bios seems to fix this problem.

Sharpz 2010-08-04

Fantastic (after a quick fix)

As other posts mentioned i noticed a quiet whine through my speakers/headset then using my mouse or loading a window/application.

To fix this go into the BIOS settings; set the Command rate (CMD) to 'Standard'

and set C3/C6/C7 State support, to 'Enabled'

fixed it for me with immediate effect

A Cracking Mainboard

Runs like a dream.

i7 920 @ 4.2 gHz (21 multiplier became available on this board)

runs win 7 x64 perfectly

Mine was sent with bent pins and therefore only read 4gb of the 6gb usable. Read around the internet for similar experiences.

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R

Bought this Mobo with
Intel Core i7 920 D0 Stepping (SLBEJ) 2.66GHz (Nehalem)
OCZ Gold 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus.

Although one memory stick was faulty (returned under RMA) I have had no need to overclock this (dont really believe in it) as its a very fast system.
Temp idles at about 30-31 degrees and when testing the memory using everest never got above a chip temp 45 (49-59 for the individual cores)

I do have the high frequency ticking noise from the mobo when moving the mouse or there is activity which is a bit annoying but as the other opsts said, it looks like the norm so I dont think I will raise an RMA. It can be removed by making a change in the BIOS to keep the CPU on full speed. But very happy so far. And very happy with Overclockers support.

I can't begin to even explain how good this board is.

Price-wise, you can't get better for the same socket type, and in terms of performance... Well, just look at the reviews out there. This thing BURNS up the competition, even beating some boards above its own pricing.

There are no problems with ports on the board, and it supports everything you can want right now. Stunning board, from a stunning company.

Great O/C

I got this Motherboard as part of a OcUK overclock bundle with a i930 @ 4.0 Ghz and 6gb of 1600 Mhz Ram.

Now this board and had some complaints about its positioning and i have to disagree. I have this in my Corsair 800D case and its layout sits perfectly for neat cable management.

Even in the Antec 1200 and 902 cases the locations are perfectly placed i have found.

The only issue with the noise the that does occastionaly come from the MB at 1st i thought this was the HDD but after reading up found out its the MB its not much of a noise but it is noticable.

I would recomend this MB over the 2 higher MB's in the series due to this one providing the highest and most stable OC of the lot.

For comparitive figures you can check CPC site.

This is proberly the best Motherboard i have had in years my last couple have been asus and they have failed on me terribly.

Good board Strange noise

I got this board due to it having a rich feature list boasting SATA3 (Raid 0), USB3 and a decent overclocking BIOS menu and all wrapped in an attractive price comparable to boards that cost more money.
I only have one small niggle about this board and the noise it seems to make from the MOSFET resistors around the CPU area which seem to buzz and whine when there is HDD/GPU and Mouse movement activity. I searched around and this seems to be the norm with quite a few of the Gigabyte range, running as intended, apparently?

Adam 2010-04-29


fantastic mobo..overclocks easy and very high..five stars from me.

Probably good for the price

This motherboard is not without it's good points. It's main selling point is it's price, which is extremely low for the features you get (SATA-3 and USB3).

However, there aren't many expansion slots - just one PCI card slot (which is obscured if you want to run Crossfire/SLI) and one PCI Express slot. I say one because, if you look closely, you can see that the uppermost slot is blocked by the Northbridge - very few cards will fit in that space.

There are also only 2 USB connectors on the motherboard, one of which will most likely be occupied by the front case ports - leaving just one for additional peripherals.

I experienced very slow boot-up times with this motherboard also, despite running SATA-3 HDD's and 6GB 1600mhz memory.

Overall, I was happy with this motherboard. The build quality is good, but check if you require space for additional expansion cards or USB ports before you buy.

Good performance, bad design

This board gets 5 * for performance and BIOS options but 2 * for design. I can't really tell from the pictures, but it seem that the more expensive Gigabyte MBs share the same design as well. The SATA connectors are at the worst place facing towards the harddrives, the PCIeX slots are too close to each other, leaving no room for SLI/Crossfire setups to get enough air flow to the top dual-slot card (could have been avoided simply by swapping the normal PCI with the second (lower) PCIeX slot, the IDE/FDD cables (if you use them) have to pass on top of the PCI cards, the top PCIeX x1 slot is only for tiny cards as the normal ones would hit the south cooler... On the other hand, the motherboard performs extremely well both for overclocking and normal operation, simply because the materials are excellent and the BIOS has many options. If you want to set it up and leave it, it's great value for money. For anything else, I'd suggest another MB. At least it has a BIOS reset at the b!
ack :)

Top quality for peanuts

Had a P6T Deluxe V2 before this baby which I loved but decided to replace because of the next gen USB/SATA3 features missing. I picked the UD3R because it seemed to have all possible features I would need in spite of the low price. And it did not disasppoint, I can live withouth the extra power regulation phases and the full heatpipe. Actually voltage remains stable at a 4Ghz OC and there is no overheating at all on the chipset, absolutely the same results as with the most expensive boards including the UD7 big brother. I can imagine if someone goes for 4.6Ghz on the I7 920 and 2000+ on the DDR3 RAM the UD7 or a Rampage can show their superiority but for anyone who does not own a nuclear plant such extreme OC is no way to go 24/7 anyway.
The X58A UD3R has features closer to the X58 UD4P than the X58 UD3, more USB and SATA ports than the very expensive Asus P6T deluxe, brilliant bios allowing for good tweaking, it really is perfect.
