After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Included Goodies

    The Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R does not come with many accessories, and just barely enough to get you up and running.  The contents are shown below.

    Installation manual and driver disk are a must.  The manual is modest in size and very informative since it covers every aspect of the motherboard.
    There are only 2 SATA cables included but you do get a ribbon cable for an IDE drive.  A Floppy cable is not included.

    This motherboard supports both triple Crossfire and SLI configurations.  Included you will find the modules needed to link the nVidia cards together.
