What is orange and black and difficult to find?  Yep you guessed it the Gigabyte X79 UD7 motherboard designed for the enthusiast in all of us.

Gigabyte X79 UD7Gigabyte as well launched several X79 motherboards like the G1.asassin, the UD3, UD5 and sure .. the UD7. That last one we'll be looking at today. A very complete motherboard I must say, with all kinds of gadgets and fresh looks.

You will see four PCI Express x16 slots, the rest of the expansion options available in the X79-UD7 include three PCIe x1 slots, four SATA 3Gbps ports, as well as a good six SATA 6Gbps ports. The rear I/O bracket shows a pair of USB 3.0 ports and 7.1-channel audio with digital S/PDIF out, but also a special OC button, a CMOS reset switch and much more.

Be sure to check out our preview article featuring the X79 UD7.
