Gigabyte X58A-UD9: A Massive Board for a Massive Score

What are the first things that would likely come across your mind when we tell you to think about a US$ 600+ , super high-end/ enthusiast motherboard? Incredible overclocking ability? Dozens of nifty features? Well, it could be anything, but to help you with the imagination, we have here just the sample of such motherboard, the Gigabyte X58A-UD9.  This peculiarly large motherboard has every bit of high-quality components hardwired onto its PCB to help feed your crave for more performance.

There are enough features crammed onto the X58A-UD9 PCB fabric to give you enough confusion trying to find out which ones are truly useful for you (they all are, supposedly). The motherboard also supports most of today’s latest hardware interfaces. You can find some of the features in Gigabytes’s other boards as well, but there are some more that are exclusively reserved for this one only, such as the 24-phase power VRM and Quad-SLI/ CrossfireX capabilities. These two features alone are already more than enough to set it (far) apart from any other ordinary motherboards.
