GIGABYTE X79 boards to sport Bluetooth + WiFi card

Getting back to the XUD7, we will cover all aspects of this board including how it lives up Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN being a Sandy Bridge-E motherboard as well as its overclocking abilities. The user may also easily switch between each BIOS via a button located on the back of the motherboard. Board Design and Layout Gigabyte has opted for an extremely clean look and feel in terms of the board design and layout.


This decision has been made by many motherboard manufacturers because it generally allows for better memory overclocking. This claim will be evaluated in our overclocking section, but considering how many motherboard manufacturers have taken this route, it is likely true. For a detailed look we invite you to take a look at our Microsoft PhotoSynth product gallery: This means no funky configurations or having to get your hands into tight spaces to install this board into your chassis. This makes the board easy to work with when installing large coolers and graphics cards. Nothing Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN or obnoxious, and it gets the job done.

The placement Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN most of the connectors on the board is well done, as all the SATA ports are angled 90 degrees and the pin power connector is close to the edge of the board. Gigabyte also placed all of the front panel headers on the bottom edge of the board so that they are easily hidden when using a chassis with decent cable management.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN even placed one of the USB 3. This means users with a USB 3. When it came to the fan headers, Gigabyte was very thoughtful and put the connectors all over the board to accommodate users that have fans all over their case. They put two towards the back of the board for the case fans that most people have in the back and top of their chassis as well as two at the bottom of the board and one in the front next to the USB 3. When it comes to the SATA ports, you will notice that there are two white ports, four black ports, and four grey ports.


Looking at the board, though, you will notice a Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN gap where it looks like four more SATA ports belong. The GA-XUD7, like many other overclocking boards, features overclocking buttons and manual voltage reference points on the board for manual voltage readings. When it came to the buttons, we honestly founds them superfluous for our overclocking needs since we have the ability to do more refined overclocking in the BIOS.

I am sure that there are overclockers out there that actually use these buttons, but these buttons are purely based on the user? We were a little disappointed, though, that Gigabyte would make all of the buttons on this board large and easily accessible except probably the most important button to any overclocker… the Restart button. I cannot overestimate how many times I had to reach for that button when overclocking this board and it would have been Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN if it was as big as the rest of the buttons around it. However, we did enjoy using the manual voltage reference points and testing them with our multimeter as they gave the most accurate readings compared to the BIOS and Software.

Looking at the VRM design of this board you will notice that Gigabyte almost exclusively went with Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN Rectifier components. Accessories and Packaging The Gigabyte XUD7 is certainly not short on accessories when it comes down to having the right things included. This leads us into the most impressive accessory, which is the Qualcomm Atheros wireless network card included on this board.

The wireless network card is a dual-purpose card because it enables both high-speed wireless N, and also enables Bluetooth connectivity. The box claims Bluetooth 4. However, we do have a Bluetooth 3. It enables high-speed bluetooth connections between devices with flawless syncing. In regards to the Wi-Fi performance, the ping we got when testing our internet speeds remained the same, so the ability to game on this board over Wi-Fi should be just as good as gaming over wired internet assuming the user has an N capable router.

The Wi-Fi sharing feature of the wireless card for the Gigabyte XUD7 is extremely feature rich and enables users to easily convert their wired or wireless desktop into a signal repeater for other devices. The ideal situation for use of this feature would be when the user has wired ports in their walls, but either has no Wi-Fi or their router? This device is able to broadcast its own wireless network and would enable the user to Gigabyte GA-X79-UD7 Atheros WLAN a decent wireless signal in the same room and even in the adjacent room.
